Just came back from an 8 night stay in the Family Suite. Rooms were great, both balconies with ocean view and nice to have shade over the balcony, otherwise you can't sit out in the blazing sun. Rooms were immaculately clean, spacious, light and airy. AC worked great and bathroom was nice size. Food was consistently great. I had fish tacos everyday for lunch...YUM! Nice breakfast everymorning and the staff would set up our table so that we all directly faced the ocean...they would do this each time we would have breakfast and lunch...they were amazing. Others stated that the location is in the middle of the most crowded beach but it was great becuase we practically sat about 10 feet from the water all day. I can imagine that in high season its much more crowded but in June it was perfect. You can't really swim right in front because its rocky, you have to walk over a bit, but not far. I liked this because we always had a clear water view rather than a bunch of people in the water. When we had a problem with the car rental and they did not show up on time, Dr. Charly offered us his truck for the whole day for free! The car eventually came but we sure did recognize his generosity and caring.
We are planning on returning to Playa next year and would stay nowhere else. We absolutely loved our trip and would highly recommend Playa Maya to anyone who wants a small boutique hotel experience rather than a resort one. It's small, simple and familial experience. Just wonderful.
