“Comfortable, friendly, convenient and affordable”
Reviewed 24 June 2010

This charming hotel is very conveniently located a block from Quinta Ave and 2 blocks from the beach. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We paid a little extra to get the private room, with it's own private sundeck, which was quite nice. Nothing super fancy, but worth the extra money to feel a little pampered and private.

Luis, the concierge, was extremely helpful and gave us good advice every step of the way. He managed to organize whatever we needed as far as activities went, which included renting a car, XPLOR and gave us good advice for a day trip to Cozumel.

For our first day at the beach, they pointed us towards a beach club that was quite nice and had a pool. The vibe was younger and very friendly.

The included breakfast is Mexican/continental, but they do have additional options available for more pesos, in case you're really hungry.

The only bad thing I can say is that there is a new hotel across the street with a club that has music going until the wee hours of the morning. This isn't a problem if you're up late or if your room is not near that new hotel, but would be annoying if you were a light sleeper.

The location was perfect! Just off of 5th Ave., but no noise. A pleasant 5 min. walk to the best beach/water in Playa. We walked the entire beach to find this out. The attention to detail in the upkeep and cleanliness of the property was excellent. Luis and the entire front desk staff were always ready to answer questions and attend to any needs. Susannah and Alex and the restaurant staff were very friendly and smiling. We also had excellent massages (with Coral) at the hotel. If you're looking for a quality low key and comfortable place (without the glitz), this is the place. We also had a great experience with Blue Caribe snorkling with the turtles and in the cenote. We are hoping to return sooner than later! Thanks to the staff for an excellent stay. We miss you all already! Family from Idaho

My wife and I spent a week there and enjoyed the hotel and Playa Del Carmen a lot!

Positives about the hotel:
- it looked very nice overall - lots of plants, nice decorations, cozy breakfast area by the pool.
- the staff was great and attentive
- 1 minute away from 5thAvenue and a pleasant 10 minute walk from the beach
- free parking
- I was able to get WiFi signal in our room

The only problem we had is with humidity in our room . That was our first trip to Mexico and I didn't know if it's just climate or smth else, but it was very humid even with A/C running all the time. But the hotel stuff was very helpful and after one night they were able to relocate us into another room and it was much better.

We're looking forward to go back next year.

We lucked out finding this hotel. its an oasis in playa, great location quiet and beautifull.
the satf was incredible and luis the concierge was awsome. he made us feel right at home and took real good care of all our needs. the hotel is a real gem, very tranquill and
clean. the bistro was fantastic, great menu and very affordable. the pool was a perfect and you can go for a late night swim. after partying all nite it was nice to cool down before bed, wich was the most comfy we have slept on in mexico, for some reason the beds in mexico are hard as a rock. so thats one of the reasons we picked this hotel. cant think of any other place we would want to stay in playa. we will defintly stay there again. also the spa has great affordable massages in a very nice setting. we had a great time staying there and highly recommend it.

We booked this hotel based on these reviews and were not disappointed. There were so many to choose from in Playa, it was a tough choice. As soon as we booked we received an email confirmation with a free room upgrade from Superior King to Deluxe. We didn't see what we would have got but the room we were given was on the top floor in the adult section. Always book this area unless you have kids as it's much more spacious. The Kids area is tiny but you can keep an eye on them from your room. The room was huge with great air con and lots of light. There is only a partition to the bathroom and toilet but this didn't bother us. Lots of stairs so not for the unfit. Although we didn't use it the pool area was stunning. Breakfast was fine and the staff were so friendly. Situated in the Italian part of the strip and a nice 5 min walk to the main hub at night. I would highly recommend this to young/old couples or small family.

This is a great boutique hotel on Ave 10 & Calle 24. We spent ten days there in May and wish we could have stayed longer! It is so close to everything yet seems so far removed when inside the hotel. Its very private and very well maintained. The staff was wonderful. The Mayan Bistro was a great place to eat. The chef and wait staff were great! The cleaning staff worked very hard to keep the property spotless and the front desk staff was always there to take care of any wants and/or needs. You get discount coupons to Kool Beach Club which was about a 5-7 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel also offers free beach towels for use. Would definately recommend this hotel.
