Reviewed 13 December 2013 via mobile

Great location! Stayed at the Master Suite 207. Very comfortable and spacious. Jacuzzi in the room is great! Balcony overlooks street. Upstairs terraze bar and pool are beautiful at night. Hector and staff were very friendly and helpful in everything during our stay. We will definitely return very soon to visit again. Cheers!

Stay here for a laid back and hipster crowd in town, but near the beach and restaurant scene. We are married but childless Americans in mid-30s and enjoyed ourselves. We had a junior suite with large tub and double-headed marble rainfall shower that I wish I had at home. No view to speak of, but scenic rooftop pool area with nice furniture and bar service of mostly 20-something Europeans. Free breakfast was fine, but didn't eat in restaurant otherwise. Within 2-3 blocks of multiple great restaurants, beach clubs, etc. Easily parked rental car on street. Hotel

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend and I had a really good experience, the usually offer a special rate if you pay with Amex.
The hotel location is great not on the beach but a couple of blocks and one block from La Quinta makes it quiet but walking distance to all the shopping, dining and just mingling in Playa del Carmen.
My room was lovely, with a sonnet writing on the wall, to rain shower heads on the shower, nice bathroom amenities and towels and the decor was really fun, it kind of keep you on your toes to discover all the decoration details this hotels offers, this a very laid back relaxed and cool hotel, so keep that in mind, the front desk was lovely too full of things. The pool is small but if you are just planning to tan and jump in the pool to cool off this will be enough, the service in the pool is great they offer a pretty decent sushi and full bar service at very decent prices. The roof top at night is a restaurant bar with a really nice ambiance.

Me a Tango lover learned the event have a milonga (tango-dancing-party) once a month , but it wasn't during my stay so I will have to come back.

In the seas of small hotels options that playa del carmen offers, I think this is one of the best options. Really cool hotel, not crazy expensive perfect for a weekend tuned in the Playa del Carmen vibe.

Room Tip: I got a room on the 4 floor just under the pool deck is was very quiet and close half flight of stai...

Fantastic location, great service (Hector was great) -- new, modern like hotel in the heart of PDC, and the rooftop lounge was great. The sushi restaurant out front was good too. Walking distance to the beach and 5th Avenue.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor- it was well above the street, very quiet.

We stayed at BePlaya for the last night of our 2 week break around Mexico. We went for a junior suite as a bit of a splurge to end on a high, but sadly BePlaya didn't really deliver. We pulled the short straw I guess as they were, as they were painted and doing repairs when we were there and is was all a bit of a confused mess.
The room was impressive when we walked in however when we had a shower the water leaked all the way across the floor to the bed and we had to use all the other towels to stop it spreading, and to stop up slipping over.
Also our air-conditioning didn't work, we informed the front desk at about 8pm as we were going out to dinner which he reported over an intercom but it wasn't fixed when we got back at 12. It was a very uncomfortable nights sleep as opening the balcony door let in lots of road noise and mosquitos . It only came on an hour before we checked out at 11am. We told the front desk (same guy) but he didn't really care, saying he reported it as if that should have been enough, there was no apology. It felt that as were only there one night it wasn't really important to them. On the one plus side the bed was big and nice.

Dear "CathDor",

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with us.

We were, in fact, fixing a water leak when you checked in, but it was promptly solved.

The air conditioning failed because it was set at maximum power and the lowest possible temperature for too long, and that is something that even the equipment manufactured says should be avoided.

Not only we did apologize for what happened, but also we refund the extra charges on your room. We feel that this bit of information is important, because we did compensate you for your inconveniences.

Thanks for staying with us.


Kind regards,

Great location, close to everything, staff never says no. Roof top bar and pool. Wonderful rooms. Free bikes but walking is best. We would return again and again. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions.
