After 2 years from our first stay with them, we went back 04/16/14 - 04/20/14. We were happy to see same faces of the employees.

We stayed there at the busiest time and the hotel looked full but still very quiet. Room and property are always clean. We enjoyed waterfall in cenote this time.

Wifi(free) works better this time, that is very convenient. Breakfast is always descent.

Pool is little small but never crowded. Our 6 year old son loves to be in there.

We are sure to go back again next time.

Room Tip: Top floor has partial ocean view from balcony that we love. Even if you have lower level rooms, you...

My husband and I stayed over a week at this hotel and we were very happy as the staff is extremely nice and the rooms are spacious and most of all very clean. You are steps away from beach and steps away from all the fun. Many great shops and restaurants ! Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone. Will be back next year !

Room Tip: The breakfast was very good and service was great!

This small family run hotel is in the heart of the Playa scene. Half block off the beach and half block off 5th Av. Our group consisted of 3 couples. We all booked 4th floor rooms as these rooms all have small refrigerators. The rooms are clean, comfortable, quiet,and well stocked with traveler needs. They even provided a small shampoo sized bottle of Aloe Vera for us who burn easily. The A/C worked well and was quiet. The management was very helpful as for hauling our bags to our rooms, orienting us to the hotel and its facilities. They were very accomodating whenever we asked about something or requested something of them. Our view was of the courtyard/pool area and breakfast area. We also had a good partial view of the ocean. The hotel provided a breakfast every morning-every morning one of the two breakfasts offered was a mixed fruit and yogart w/granola plate. It was yummy. Other choices were scramble eggs w/sausage or bacon, or some type of Mexican breakfast dish, plus toast, freshly squeezed orange juice, and coffee or tea. It was always a very good meal.
As I said the hotel is just a half block away from the beach and we enjoyed the beach everyday.
I also said the hotel was just a half block from 5th Av. where there are many restaurants and shops to choose from. From about midday on 5th Av. is a pretty bustling p[lace. Yes, the shop and restaurant people are asking you to come in to see their wears or for a meal, but they never seem to be offended as you pass by.
The one deficency of the hotel is the elevator. It didn't always work and we told them about it when it wasn't working and they would have it fixed later that day or the next day.
On our next trip to Playa del Carmen we plan to stay at Hotel Pasada Sian Ka'an.

Room Tip: If you want a small refrigerator and the best view get a 4th floor room

We stayed here for 3 nights

Location
The location is good, 5mins from the ADO bus station and one block from 5th Avenue (which has all the shops on) and most importantly a 1min walk to the beach! BUT… don’t expect to get much sleep, as the bars nearby play their music very loud until midnight every night that we were there!

Rooms
The beds are not that bad, just pre-ask for mattress covers on your beds to make them softer . The air conditioning is very good. We had the most basic twin room so all the room has was 2 beds, air conditioning and a small cupboard with a safe and a small old bathroom. No TV, No fridge. We paid 79USD per night which I thought was quite expensive.
Bathroom ensuite
The toilet in the bathroom did not work properly, it filled up and could not flush. When I asked the receptionist if we could have the problem fixed or change rooms we were quickly and politely informed the manager is at home and will not speak with us on a Sunday.
The shower pressure was poor and if too many people were using the shower in the morning, the water pressure disappeared to a trickle of cold water.

Security
I had to use the toilet in hotel reception (as the toilet in my room was not working) for the rest of my stay which I was not happy with. In addition, on one occasion when I used the toilet a 3am in the morning, the hotel receptionist was sleeping on the sofa – this says a lot about the hotel security at night – anyone could get into the hotel by walking straight past the sleeping hotel receptionist. Beware, location may come at a high price.

Breakfast
The breakfast is a set-menu, you can choose one from two options, which was okay. The fruit was fresh and the toast was plentiful.

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...
