“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2011

Loved it!
Not sure how we won the cool room lottery but we sure did here. We had the cutest little cabana away from everyone with its own outdoor sitting area. Inside it had a small couch, what seemed to be an extra large bed, refrigerator,microwave, water dispenser, sink, and flat screen tv -- plenty of closet space and more space to put things in the bathroom. The bathroom was open which was somewhat odd for a extra shy person like myself but we seemed to make it work. We only had breakfast at the restaurant but it was very good when we ordered off the menu. The pools were nice and refreshing after a day at the beach. I always seemed to see someone working or cleaning the grounds - we could tell they really care about their facility. Hopefully we will have to chance to visit again in the future since I would like to try the all-inclusive option which seemed like a very good deal.

My wife and I are frequent travelers to Q-Roo and Playa Del Carmen, we have stayed in a wide variety of accomodations from the Royal, Royal Time Shares, the RIU and Real Chains. We fell in love with the Boutique style Hotels durring our last couple of trips, staying at La Tortuga and Cabanas Tulum 2 times, this time we decided to shop around. I happened upon this hotel and their VIP all inclusive plan and decided why not, I figured if we ate breakfast and a few dinners and had drinks after a day at the beach it would be worth it. Boy was it, we enjoyed the Mayan Bistro so much we ended up eating all but 3 meals there. Chef Marco has my vote for best chef in Playa.

The Room: We booked a Honeymoon suite, it was large, well appointed, clean and the bed was comfortable. There were no problems with water pressure or temperature. There was only a minor issue with the A/C which was quickly rectified.

The Grounds: The grounds are beautifully landscaped and well maintained

Reservations: Andy was extremely helpfull and pleasant to work with, if you are not comfortable making online reservations email Andy.

Guest Services: Everyone there was extremely helpfull.

Maintenance: We only needed maintenance 1 time due to our A/C not staying on, they were there in a flash and recharged the unit in less then 1/2 hour, the room didn't even have a chance to get warm.

The Wait Staff: Some nights Chef Marco was the one man show, tending bar, waiting tables and cooking. For breakfast Giavanni and Dora were awsom. Aldo the evening bar tender was also great. The Mayan Bistro staff is what made our trip so special.

To sum it up, this hotel is a great budget deal with a great staff that makes it seem so much more personnal. It's the best of both worlds, The feel of a small boutique hotel with a great staff coupled with the money savings of an AI, and no buffets. We enjoyed it so much by the last 4 days we were emailing Andy again for a return trip in May.

I've been to Playa many, many times and stayed at a different place each time searching for a favorite. I found it! The staff is very friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable (the bed was not rock hard like many places in MX and the AC worked really well). Marco, the chef at Mayan Bistro, continually amazed us. Each meal was better than the last. The all-inclusive plan was a great value even though we only ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel. The location is perfect - 1/2 block from 5th Avenue (so it's quiet at night) and a 5 minute stroll to the Indigo Beach Club. There are two beach club options - Kool is for the party, club music crowd and Indigo is for the chill on the beach crowd. Ask for Carlos at Indigo - he took great care of us!

We stayed at this property for our honeymoon and found everything on our schedule easy to get to from the location. If you are a fun tourist this is the perfect spot, but if you are one of those needy and lazy guests then you should stay at the hotel zone in Cancun.

Room Tip: We booked a deluxe room and the space was perfect. We only paid $5dlls more per night.

The hotel is in great condition, with beautiful grounds, rooms and the staff is wonderful. Everyone was very helpful as well as friendly and is in a great location. There is an on site restaurant which is nice and serves very good dishes. We really enjoyed the Mayan Bistro staff and special mention goes out to Giovanna and Marco. Luis in guest services was most helpful as well in assisting me in locating a camera battery after mine had failed. We enjoyed everything about our accommodations in Playa and highly recommend the hotel Aventura Mexicana!

Little cute hotel. Everybody is super friendly. Is clean and well located. It's a few blocks from the beach but they provide access to Kool beach club and it's perfect.
Is not an expensive hotel and you get lots of benefits.
I definitely woyld go back
