Basic Double-Room w/bathroom, $190 per person/per night , 20th – 22nd March 2014
Vibe: Unmistakably hippy, replete with a dread-locking service and the soothing chorus of duelling Spanish guitars.
Location: 4 blocks from the beach, Tres Mundos is thankfully far enough from the Haagen-Daaz and Starbucks experience of Calle 5 and 10, whilst being convenient to reach the beaches by foot.
Best thing: The splashes of colour that adorn the walls and floors are clearly reflective of an owner that has a passion for the unique and creative. That and the rooftop hammocks.
Worst thing: Breakfast is included, however prepare to be disappointed. A poorly operating toaster will dribble out your ration of two pieces of sweet bread to go with a not dreadful cup of coffee. To chuck in a couple of pieces of fresh fruit would cost the owners very little, but may actually leave their guests a little less ravenous by 9am.
Value for money: If the breakfasts were better, then it's fine. Our double room, whilst being very spacious, consisted of 3 bunk beds. A couple hoping for a more romantic experience will be disappointed and possibly left with bumps to the head.
Recommended for: Young, carefree travellers who want to enjoy the nightlife of Playa del Carmen.
Top tip: Buy additional food to go with your breakfast bread; the kitchen is actually not bad.
