We stayed here for just one night in April 2013 at the end of our honeymoon. We had been staying in an all inclusive and were so refreshed to get back to a hotel that was more our style in El Acuario. The hotel is an oasis in downtown Playa Del Carmen - our room looked onto 25th Ave but was still very quiet at night. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is well maintained, and the rooms have a/c, safety deposit boxes, and a small kitchen with a small fridge, some utensils and a cook top if you want to make some of your own meals. Rooms are simple with hard beds but clean and all linens are provided. We were able to check in early when we arrived at 11am and leave our luggage at the hotel until 4pm the day of our check out as we had a late flight.
The management went above and beyond when we realized we had left our passports in the safety deposit box once we arrived at the airport in Cancun. We just called her and she sent them in a secure taxi which arrived at the airport within 30 minutes. It was a life saver! She also helped us find a kite board shop for my husband and negotiated with the taxi for us! We would definitely go back.
