“Clean and spacious”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

My husband and I spent a week at Adventura Mexicana and found it to be very clean and well run. Upon arrival, we were checked by Luis who was extremely helpful and very personable. We had a room on the third level with great views of downtown Playa. The room was extremly clean, had a mini fridge and a ton of space to put away your luggage. The only downside was the water pressure in the shower, plenty of hot water but not very powerful...acceptable. We were given passes to two beach clubs and took full advantage of Indigo, which is the more mellow of the two offered and had great service. The location could not have been better, right off Calle 24 and close enough to the collectivo and ADO for cheap transportion to the airport as well as anything along 307 from Cancun to Tulum. The adult only pool was clean and refreshing, although children were all over the place around the restaurant which could not be helped as the pool is located directly outside the bistro. We had a airconditioning malfunction during our stay and when it could not be fixed immediately, we were moved to a room next door right away. We are definately rebooking our next stay here and I would overwhelmingly recommend this hotel to travelers coming to Playa del Carmen with confidence. The prices cannot be beat. Best of all, the bed was very comfortable. Whenever we asked for an extra blanket or pillow, we had them right away.

We had a great time and loved this hotel! The room was spacious, the restaurant food was wonderful, and everyone was very nice. The location was convenient to 5th avenue and the beach. One big thing we look for in Mexico is a comfortable bed and our king was very comfy. Highly recommend and we WILL go back!

Room Tip: Rooms close to the restaurant and lobby can pickup the free WiFi.

We absolutely loved this boutique hotel! In the 18 years we have been going to Mexico, we have always stayed at beachside hotels. In order to extend our 2 week stay a little, we decided to try Aventura Mexicana for 3 nights. It exceeded our expectations! Our 2nd floor room was clean, quiet, and had a very comfortable bed. The staff was great. The grounds and courtyard are a tropical oasis. The hotel provides a daily pass to the Kool Beach Club a few blocks away which is on a beautiful part of the beach (close to where we stayed the other part of our trip). The food at the hotel restaurant (Mayan Bistro) was outstanding and Marco is truly a gourmet chef (see reviews)! Great happy hour (4 - 7 pm) with Aldo, our favorite bartender in Playa.

I have become a convert. I now realize oceanfront hotels are not the only way to enjoy a beach vacation. We will definitely return to Aventura Mexicana again and again and again!

Room Tip: Get a Superior King room on the 2nd or 3rd floor.

I love this place! Second stay here and will definitely return. The workers are friendly, the food is great, and the hotel is very quaint. Steps away from all of the action as well. Highly recommend.

This is a cute hotel and a hidden gem not obvious from the street. We stayed in room 1 (I think), the first room on the ground floor next to the restaurant and the "adults only" pool. There was no noise from either, and it was quiet at night as well. I liked the location of being steps from the pool and breakfast. After a long day doing fun stuff all over the coast, it was nice to come back to the two-for-one happy hour and hang with other hotel guests in the pool and relax before evening plans. The complimentary included breakfast was good. Coffee, juice and Mexican pastries, toast, jam, honey, etc. We usually also ordered 1 order of tocino (bacon!) for around 30 pesos to munch on with toast. Yum! A great and easy way to start our day before heading out for excursions. The location is great, walking distance to all, and especially lovely that the convenience store was on 10th avenue only another block up. The mini fridge was great, the room was clean, the bed comfy, the sheets clean, and the safe was convenient and you can self program it. All in all, a lovely and simple boutique hotel. The property is definitely safe at night too — there is a security guard and the open-air entrance is gated off and locked until morning. The bathroom area in our room is only half-separated from the room, with a soft-loft type of wall. Kind-of a half wall thing, partitioning off that area. So, if you have any stomach issues or want some privacy with your toilet functions, be aware of this for the standard room. During low season you can save a ton on booking here in combo with your airfare on travel engine sites.
