If you don't like big resort, but you still like to stay at the nice place, this is it. I've read somewhere that it is a "boutique" hotel, and this expression exactly reflects the vibe of this place. It is very clean with modern decor. We had a room on the first floor, five feet away from pool. Place was very quiet all the time, and only occasionally other guests were playing at the pool. It is perfect for a romantic getaway! Location is also great, just one block from 5th Ave. and few blocks away from the beach. Beach on this side of Playa is really nice and sandy. You just can't go wrong with this place.
Advice: we explored entire 5th Ave. and it turned out that bars and restaurants on the 5th Ave. on "our" side (closest to the hotel) are the cheapest and that's where the locals actually party, so stay close. Taxi ride to local supermarket was only $2.5 each way a couple of years ago...so much better than walking in the heat. For a day trip, I recommend going to Cozumel (take ferry) and rent a scooter, it was the best time ever to ride around island (around $30 per day and remember to bring you credit card and passport with you). Have fun.
