“remarkable value on the beach”
Reviewed 12 February 2011

This wasnt my first rodeo in Playa. I have stayed many times in last 10 years. I have been to Playa Maya, Grand Porto, Fusion, Royal, Grand Coco, Las Palapas, Illusion, Aventuras Mexicana, Azul 5's, Petitte Lafittes, Luna Encanta, and lots of AI's up and down the coast. The aforementioned hotels are all good or good enough and have lots to offer. However its my purpose here to let all who read this know how good this small beachfront hotel is. It is older but in good working condition. The staff are efficient, friendly and competent. Its a well run, safe hotel with a great location and view. The pricing of the rooms I feel cannot be beat for a beachfront hotel in Playa. I had a beachfront room and could look north on the beach all the way to Gran Porto and south to ferry pier to Coz. Its a wonderful way to wake up. (rooms face east.) Some peopelo coplain about the noise coming from the all night beach club at the other end of the beach (Blue Parrot) but the volume at the All Riviera end is muted somewhat and your airconditioner will drown most of it. The beach club, Bad Boys is right beside the room I had...next door north, but their band only plays on Thurs and Saturday nights from 5 to 9. Its a fun to enjoy this busy spot and with your room right next door, you dont have to endure the Bad Boys washrooms or the drunken greybacks that inhabit the site.The location is remarkable and there are plenty of places to explore and eat and drink nearby. The All Riviera's beach club seems to be run by Mario who is congenial and hustles to please. Staying here allows free beach chairs and it doesnt hurt if you offer to buy Mario a beer to have with you. So to wrap this up.....The All Riviera Hotel is a remarkable value that allows access "right on the beach" Unlike some of the hotels that you get a "view" of the beach.(or in some cases no view) I heartedly recommend this hotel. And despite the fact I have been to Playa so many times.........this is my first Trip Advisor review... they deserve it.

All Riviera is just what people have said. Location is great, close to all that you need or want to do. Right on the beach rooms if you were any closer you would have sand on the floor. Our room 101 was very clean and kept that way. Nose level was low if you like hard beds this place is for you they are very hard, We liked it. When we got to the hotel it was a little surprise but as we stayed it became home. The front desk could not have been any nicer or more helpful. Miguel worked the front desk he can take care of anything need. The only thing they could change is the continental breakfast coffee juice and toast. Anything else cost. If they could make the shower have more pressure and hot water it would be great. Internet (included) worked great in the lobby very fast. It is a very simple hotel but what more do you need? If you stay in this hotel take the bus do not listen to the cab drivers at the airport. Get off the bus and go two blocks to the left turn right on 2 down the hill and you are there. For $1.50 go around to the right and there are bikes with baskets to take your luggage to the room. We left here and stayed in an all inclusive in Cancun if I could have I would have moved back to All Riviera. I would not stay any where in cancun loved Playa. The hotel was nothing special but we did enjoy our stay.

The location is great, three blocks from the port to Cozumel,one from the ADO bus, two from the minivans that go to Tulúm, Puerto Morelos and Cancún. Just 10 mts from the beach, actually basic continental breakfast is served on the small bar on the beach, and you can use the chairs, umbrellas and towels. Just tip the guys, they are really nice. The room is basic, ours had ocean view and it was a pleasure to seat on the small balcony looking at the full moon over the white sand beach and the sea after a long journey around Tulúm and Cobá. It seemed just like a pousada in the north east of Brazil.
We wanted a simple clean room, and the beach just a few steps away was a plus. We got what we pay for and are more than happy with it. The staff at the front desk were all very sweet and friendly

The hotel was a little run down, but you get what you pay for. There is a little cantina in the hotel which gave us the taste of real Mexico. The location is wonderful...one block from 5th St and 3 blocks from the ferry to Cosemel(sp).
The best thing about the hotel was the staff. They were the most friendly and helpful of any hotel I have ever stayed at...and I have stayed at 5 star hotels before.

clean hotel with affordable price in the Center of Playa del Carmen, friendly people. Great view to the beach, Manager was very courteous to us and our baby.
You have to rent a parking lot, if you are here by car. If You park on the street, be aware to park 15 Meters away from the next crossing street - otherwise You get a police-ticket and the car plate will be removed - you get it back at the police office after paying.

I stayed at All Riviera for 10 days in September. I was a little concerned because older reviews were not great. They must have had a management change or something because it was clean, staff was great and good service. The price was great when I booked on Bestday.com. The first thing I checked for was bedbugs, as I do at all hotels. There were none. There was also no noise problem or anything wrong with the room.

For a beachfront hotel, you can't beat the price. It was very nice, with good size room, A/C, fridge, pool and Miguel at the front desk was always nice. As a woman travelling alone I felt very safe there and safe even out walking at night.

I have stayed at four or five other hotels in Playa del Carmen, some were mediocre and others were good--Intercontinenal (different name now) ***, Labna *, Hotel Delphine ** (good but not beach front), Mimi del Mar*** right next door. All Riviera was the best for me with the combination of price and amenities.

The only issue I had was that it was the low season there and local people struggle to make much money during the low season. The waiters were polite, but I really didn't want to pay tourist prices for food or drinks, so I felt bad for them when I turned down invitations from them to get drinks there.

I hope to return in May and next September and I will definitely stay at All Riviera.

For those interested in saving some money, don't pay $40 or $50 for hotel shuttles at the airport. Go to the Ado desk at the airport and take the local bus direct from Cancun to Playa del Carmen for $10, 2 blocks away from All Riviera. Book your return trip to the airport a day or two before departure at the bus station. Very important to check what terminal your return flight is on. You need to know this in order to get off at the right stop from the bus. Most people get off at terminal 2. I did this one time and it was a problem because the shuttles between terminals were not good. I usually fly US Air and leave from Terminal 3. Easy, but you have to know which terminal you need.

One other word of advice is to stay away from the time share people, unless you want to spend hours of your vacation with high pressure sales people, who have you hostage at their resort. They will eventually bring you back, but for sure a waste of time.

My husband and I have stayed here several times and will probably go back again. If you are in Playa for the beach and to explore local restaurants - this is for you! If you like luxury and huge resorts - keep looking. The rooms aren't fancy but they are clean and well maintained. The beach is so close to your room and the view is amazing! You're also close to 5th Avenue which is where all the action is. The restaurant/bar staff was great and we felt like family with them all (maybe except for the owner, who seems to control everything with an iron fist from her throne in the bar).
If you stay here, take the public bus from the airport to Playa instead of a car service - you will save a bundle and the time spent traveling is the same.
I recomment this hotel to friends who don't need luxury, just a beach and some sun!
