“Great Location”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Stayed here Feb 7 thru 14. Second time in Playa del Carmen. Loved this small hotel. Beautiful garden. Cozy vibe. Good breakfast. Nice staff. Clean room. Very quiet at night. Bar next door plays loud music in the day but by early evening cant hear it anymore. The grounds are kept clean. Pool was nice. Perfect location. One block from beach and one block to 5th Ave. Nice beach but even nicer beach north of pier (north of Calle Constituyentes) where you will find Mamitas Beach Club. Hotel is situated where more locals hang out. Close to ADO bus station and also if you walk three blocks up you will find the Colectivos (mini carpools) that take u anywhere up and down hwy 307, went to Xelha, Xcaret, and Cancun for $40 pesos or less. Cant beat that! If your looking for a clean and quiet room to come home to after your day of activities this is it. You wont be disappointed!

This place is a lot closer to the beach then it looks on the maps. The location is fantastic! You can either take the ADO bus from the airport for around $10 USD, or take a cab from the airport for $ 400 pesos which is about $30 USD. The ADO is really very nice and takes you a block from the hotel. Once in Playa you just walk to the hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful. The staff was warm & had a relaxed charm, yet anticipated our every need. The rooms are big with large bathrooms.Like the other reviewers have said, the beds are a bit hard. I called the front desk & asked for mattress pads.They were there the next morning. The breakfast was very good. I am very picky & loved the breakfast. They also had fresh juices & coffee. If you like Starbucks its two blocks away. Every question I had for Jose at the front desk was answered. Every suggestion was amazingly accurate. The lovely woman at the front desk suggested a seafood place on the beach two doors down called The Tarraya. It is the oldest restaurant in Playa. Fantastic seafood at some of the best prices in town. We ate there three times.The seafood platter was really special. Sitting either on the beach or under the palapa watching the ocean & eating was very romantic.The beach itself right there is the best spot in Playa. Its busy enough to see all the action,its got perfect waves and fun water to swim. Many other parts of the beach are thin stretches or hugged right up to some resort. $150 pesos gets you a lounge & umbrella for the day right in front of the Tarraya. Another fantastic thing about all this is when you want to go out of town on a day tour its simply a block & a half to the ADO & a short cheap bus trip to Coba , Tolum, Akumal. Almost all big attractions can be had for little money this way. If you want a private tour the Sian Kaan hotel has there very own tours as well. We were there for 10 days and enjoyed many sites.There were many European guests at the hotel. The place was very quiet at night. If you go by elevator or stairs to the top the view from the roof is spectacular.At night you could hear live music from the hotel on the beach from the roof & see all of Playa. I had no problem with mosquito's. Its easy to see how anyone would want to keep the glass doors open, the fresh sea breeze is wonderful. The balcony space is just so nice.The room had safes, TV,air conditioning,hair dryer,little table & chairs.The sundries were of decent quality.Plenty of hot water. We got our laundry done at a place a block away perfect. Dropped it off & picked it up later that day. This is a wonderful hotel,a wise choice for budget travelers with all the action close by. This was our fourth trip to this part of Mexico & second to Playa. This hotel is very well run and I would go back & recommend it to a friend.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor. If I came back I would do fourth floor. The bungalows in front are cheap...

Stayed at the hotel fromJan 30-Feb 3rd. Great mid sized hotel in Playa. We had a room on the first floor that was right in front of the pool. Quiet room, cool AC (we had to turn it down to sleep), and 1/2 block form 5th ave. and 1 block from the beach. Check in was quick and easy, getting beach towels was a non issue, and best of all.. the hotel is quiet. There is a beach bar that butts up to the back of the hotel that you can hear when you walkin the cooridors.. but once you are in your room, the sound dissappears.

I have stayed at many hotels in the city of Playa and this one is the best yet. Rooms are clean!

One negative is that the beds are somewhat firm.. they werent like sleepng on boards..l but they were pretty firm. This is my individual preference and would have no impact on my decision to stay here again in a couple months.

Amazing hotel, very charming, excellent location. Steps away from the beach, 5th ave and a bus stop, which is perfect and cheaper than taxis. Every day they serve you nice breakfast and it's different choices daily. Nice pool in a shape of the fish that changes colors at night time. Very friendly staff. Rooms are very specious and clean, so bright. It was nice to open the balcony door every morning and listen to the birds. The view from the sundeck is beautiful. The only negative are the beds. They are like rocks, very hard, after 4 nights we still didn't get used to the beds.

Very nice hotel with friendly helpful staff.

Walking distance to beach 1 min and basically the same to the busses, diving centers and all the nice restaurants, bars and shops. My first night was at a not so nice hotel but when I found Sian Ka'an it was perfect for me and I stayed all week.

I have stayed at more fancy hotels but Sian Ka'an is very nice and well worth the money. Towel for the beach, ok internet on the room and decent breakfast included in the reasonable price.

I can easily see myself spending some nights there next time I visit Playa.

We stayed for 1 night before going to our all-inclusive hotel. It was great to be so close to the ocean and 5th avenue! Our room was very clean and bed was comfortable.
We were given a delicious breakfast in the morning and had a choice of 2 items. This was a lovely touch that we did not expect. it saved us about $15USD.
The room was very reasonable, we felt safe and would not hesitate to return!

Room Tip: May have ocean view from higher level!
