“Great Boutique Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013 via mobile

Great, romantic hotel directly on ocean. I wish the concierge staff was a little more polished. If you are looking for a quiet place away from hustle and bustle, this is your place
Pros: views, service, quiet location, food
Cons: non-paved road off main highway, concierge staff could be better.

Le Reve is such a special boutique hotel. With only 25 rooms it's quaint, peaceful and private. The concierge, waiters and bartenders were always so wonderful. We could not have asked for a better hotel!

In September, we made our third trip to Le Reve. Although we did not think it would be possible, they made our visit EVEN BETTER then before.
We were accustomed to their spectacular service and beautiful property, but we were overwhelmed with the special treatment they afforded us this time.
On this visit, we stayed in one of the beach bungalows. It was heavenly. We didn't care that the rains came, as we watched the clouds and raindrops roll in from the sea, from the comfort of our bed!
As always, the exemplary staff (Antonio, Ishmael, Roberto, Freddie, the brillant chefs, and wonderful concierge) outdid themselves.
I promised myself that this time I would not shed tears upon our departure, but alas, this place is so special I couldn't help myself.
The only thought to console me is that we will, of course, be back!

We stayed early September for 4 nights and researched prior on trip advisor. Dont be put off by the pot holed driveway, if you want a child free quiet relaxing spot with lovely staff and beachfront this is for you.
Catarina and Arelia are wonderful and so helpful with booking tours, advice, where to dine etc...
We were upgraded to a directors suite with canopy bed and large balcony. Food was excellent and pricing fair. The beach in front is too rocky to swim but just a little walk will take you to a more condusive swimming spot.
Great value for money and nothing like the nasty all inclusive large resorts that seem to be the norm in this area.
Be ware of mosquitoes - take plenty of repellent.

14 months after my daughter's fabulous wedding at Le Reve, I once again had the opportunity of spending a weekend at this secluded boutique hotel. After settling in, we were off to the bar for a beverage & then posted a photo on facebook. Immediate comments from friends who attended the wedding included " OK I couldn't be more jealous right now" and "Oh I miss that place. Lucky girls!" The weather was not perfect, but the service & atmosphere were top notch. Although there is wifi reception if you must keep in touch with the world, this hotel encourages you to escape & enjoy your experience of just being in this beautiful setting. There is NO TV in your room; no sports event on a huge screen over the bar; and nobody demanding you join in a volleyball game etc. The restaurant is first class (see my review of the Naay Restaurant) & seems to be open whenever you are hungry. Whether you spend a night or a week, in my opinion, you will leave relaxed and re-energized.

This review is about a year late. My partner and I stayed at Le Reve for four nights at the end of August last year. It was our first time and we now talk about a return trip given how lovely our stay was. We were looking to stay at a boutique hotel that wasn't too large but that had the conveniences we look for on vacation. We were not disappointed. The room was nicely adorned and spacious and we were provided a fruit plate and chocolate covered strawberries given that it was a special occasion. There was no TV or anything in the room, but that was fine for us given that we were looking for a quiet getaway. The room had AC and was completely clean. We took most of our meals at the hotel and found both the breakfasts and the dinners to be excellent. The prices were more steep than you'd find in a restaurant, but that's to be expected at a hotel. The best part of the hotel was the beach and the service. We spent most of our days relaxing on the beach and wading in the water (there is some corral in front of the property that makes swimming more difficult, but a walk down the beach is sandier). The wait staff supplied us with buckets of beers and margaritas whenever we asked. It was perfect. We also took part in a BBQ on the beach one night and had a blast. We will be back!

I was excited about lereve but was totally disappointed on getting there as i was expecting atleast a 4 star hotel but got a 2 star.Anyways below is my review



Advantages:
.Good location
.Hotel has only 25 rooms so not crowded
.access to beach/ beach activities
.15 min taxi ride to restaurants on 5th ave playa downtown playa del carmen
.Staff was excellent and responded quickly to requests
.Food was ok to good

Disadvantages:
.Access road to the hotel is bad with potholes and no pedestrian path
.Hotel and rooms needs ALOT of maintenance (Both exterior and interior)
.No wifi or TV in rooms
.No refrigerator in rooms
.Bedroom comforter/ bedsheets/ pillow are old-- i was very upset when i found out the comforter was cover with new cloth to make it look new, peeled away the cloth and comforter had all kinds of stains.
.spa smells moldy and had water stains on the walls
.Hotel Brochure in the rooms are outdated

Room Tip: If you want privacy , go with the bungalows
