Very helpful and nice staff (goes for receptionists, breakfast area and cleaning personell).
We got great hints as to what to do with our time, were always welcomed with a smile and got everything we needed (for example using the hotels fridge for a magnum bottel of champagne).
I really liked the setup of the hotel, where all the rooms are surrounding a small pool and everything is full of palmtrees and other exotic plants. So it is well protected from the noise that can come off 5th Ave (although the hotel is located at a little less noisy area).
We booked a Deluxe King room and it was great. Walk through the glas door and you step right on the balcony with a table and 2 big chairs. When we came, there was customized organic soap and shampoo with cute wrapping. Not so important, I guess, but it made me smile.
The bed was huge with 2 mattresses, which were perfectly ok.
Come to the price: GREAT Deal!!
I think the only reasons why I did not give 5 points here is that breakfast just got very boring after a few days, even though it was pretty good and you would always get a plate with fresh cut fruit. Another reason would be that I had wished for the bedsheets to be changed more often. Don't get me wrong, everything was super clean and well kept, but we stayed 10 nights and I might be a bit picky on that side. Also the owners of the hotel (American-German couple) are around a lot and encouraged us to let them know anything we needed at all times, so we could have just mentioned it.
All in all: Playa del Carmen is amazing with a lot of opportunities to make daytrips (we rented a car for the time, but there is also busses) and the hotel was a gem! We were very happy to have stayed there and to explore the entire Riviera.
