Location was awesome and the hotel itself was picturesque. 10 minute walk to multiple beaches. Right off of the busy and popular 5th avenue which has a many restaurants and shops. Quite the night life.
Can't wait to return!!!

Aventura Mexicana is a delightful small resort hotel in Playa del Carmen. It has all the amenities of a large resort, and is very comfortable, affordable, and welcoming. The staff are remarkable in their gracious manners and awareness of each guest. The food is outstanding! Also, it is convenient to the beautiful beaches, shops, and restaurants.

Room Tip: Select a room with a view of the inner courtyard and pool.

I feel instantly in love with this hotel when the manager, Luis, showed my family and I to our room, which was very fresh smelling and clean. There was a touch of added care with an adorable Swan creation made out of a few towels welcoming us on one of the beds.The room had many lighting options and effective air conditioning. We stayed in the family section which was very quiet and comfortable. There are two nicely sized pools that are the perfect depth for a light swim or relaxing float. They clean the pools every morning and ensure that the area surrounding them are always clean. The Mayan Bistro in the hotel is filled with lovely attentive staff and many delicious food choices at great prices. Any meal is a good experience here. There is live music some nights which you can hear from your room if you are close enough, very nice.
The staff at the hotel are very sweet and polite.
The location of this hotel is perfect. It is quiet, while being minutes walk from the beach, shopping and taxi.

I had an amazing one week stay at Hotel Adventura Mexicana. I will be going back there and would recommend this place to anyone.

This is our second time at the Hotel Aventura Mexicana and we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The room was comfortable (though the bathroom could have been a bit more private--but we were well prepared for this) with a firm (but comfortable) pillowtop mattress, television, large closet (for a hotel), nice toiletries, AC, fan, desk, etc. The hotel itself has a couple beautiful courtyards, nice small pools and an excellent restaurant (probably better than most of the restaurants on 5th Avenida). And to top everything off, the staff is the friendliest and most helpful group of people out there. Have I gone on enough, do you get that we had a great time?

This is a charming small hotel located a block and a half from 5th Avenida, the main drag, and only three or four blocks from the beach. Hotel has a deal with several beach clubs nearby and you can use all the facilities for no more than 100 pesos ($8). So why pay double just to have a hotel on the beach? The hotel has a secluded feel despite proximity to the Ave. Rooms are situated around a charming garden courtyard and two small pools. Continental breakfast is included. The hotel also has a good restaurant, the Mayan Bistro. The price in March was very reasonable.

We stayed at the Hotel Aventura Mexicana based on the recommendation of our son. Our room was very basic, but very clean and quiet, located on the second floor. The air conditioner was effective, but noisy. The hotel is in a great location -- close to 5th ave, and not far from the beach. We liked that it was closer to the quiet end (more north end) of 5th Ave.

The gardens and pool at the resort are lovely and we spent the first day sitting and relaxing by the pool, preferring that to the crowded beach. The flowers and Mexican style architecture of the hotel were especially attractive and it looked magical at night. The continental style breakfast was sufficient and it was lovely to eat outside in the garden. We had one dinner at the Mayan Bistro and it was delicious and well presented.

The front desk staff, restaurant staff and housekeeping were all professional and friendly. This hotel is good value for money and you won't go wrong by staying here.

I just got back from my one week stay here with my sisters. I thought I would let everyone know how it went. It is very beautiful inside. It felt like home. It is very quiet and you have tons of privacy. There are two pools, one in the family area and one in the adult area. There isn't much difference between the two but the shape. They are pretty much the same depth. The families with young children stay in the family side, while most of the couples stay on the adult side close to the mayan bistro. It is literally 1 minute away from 5th Avenue. I personally dislike 5th because there aren't many authentic shops. A lot of them are things I could find back home. The continental breakfast is boiled eggs, fruit while it lasts (usually apples left is you come too late), orange juice, fresh orange juice, water, coffee, toast, mini cereal boxes, baked breads (coconut and carrot), sometimes there is granola and yogurt and anything else on the menu which you must pay for. Everyone who works here is very welcoming, nice and sweet. I especially loves the Mayan Bistro in the hotel. It is sometimes very empty, but don't let that intimidate you. You will receive the best service possible. They are so genuine and friendly. Nicolas and his daughter Gaby are wonderful. The cat that lives at the hotel, Olivia, is extremely adorable and small. Luis, the guest services manager seemed really nice, although he kind of disappeared the last few days of my stay. I hardly saw him. To be honest, he wasn't that helpful. There is usually someone at the desk, if not, they are in the back room. We also bought round trip transportation from the hotel. We got picked up by Raul at Cancun airport. He was very helpful and have us a lot of great information. He didn't know I understood Spanish. I over heard him calling women on the street ugly while we drove through traffic. I do believe he was supposed to bring us back as well, but he didn't show up. We had a different man come last minute. Not sure if that was an accidental mix up or if they are very unorganized. The maid we got was Josefa and she did an amazing job. The room was always clean and fresh when we got in with very cute towel animals. The hotel is very safe and cleaned constantly. Our room did have a slight odor in the closet. The live music did keep me up since we were in the family section, close to where they have the market in the morning and live music at night (every few days). I didn't check out the yoga or the spa. There is so much more I could say about this cute little hotel. I will definitely try to come back. I love Playa del Carmen. It's an amazing place with lots to do, great food and amazing people.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor or in the adult section.
