“Great place while being in Playa”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I have to say that this hotel has everything you need if you are going to explore the attractions around Riviera Maya.
We rented a car a Barrio Latino was our place for the last leg of our trip.
It´s very well located, just 2 blocks away from the beach and the 5th avenue.
It has a/c, a fan, fridge, safety box and includes breakfast.
The guys at the front desk are very nice and helpful.
Overall, a good experience,value for money, not the best mattress quality, a little noise at some point at night, but it was ok for us.
It also has free parking. Extra bonus in crowded Playa del Carmen.
However, if you are looking for a relax hotel in front of the beach with all inclusive stuff, TV and nothing else to do, this is definitely not your place in town.

this is a cute little hotel...close to 5th Ave but far enough to enjoy a little peace and quiet. Less then 5 minuets from the beach. The hotel is very clean and nice. The staff is great, especially Stefano who gave us great recommendations - Thank you!
Great place for the price, Very much recommended (Liat & Nir)

I found that place base on the review that I saw and I stayed in this hotel for 8 days. Wow!!! Such a great and cozy place.
First, they are downtown. 1 block from the 5e Avenue, where everything happen. Not even 5 min walk to the beach. Plenty of restaurant in the area, for any kind of taste.
Second, the room are really clean and well kept. The area is quite and they make sure that the guest are too. No kids allowed, great. No TV, who need one anyway! Not a party place, good place to rest.
Air conditioning, safe, fridge, hammock and a comfy bed, I don't need more than that.
And a good thing about that place is they are environment friendly. They do recycle and they use biodegradable soap. Awesome!!!
And the staff is welcoming, friendly and super helpful. They sell some tour like Chichen Itza and Tulum, but they will recommend only the best for you. They are really honest about the tour that is not worth it.
Definitely a place that I recommend and that I will go back to. Good price!!!!

To put it as simply as possible, we'll be staying here when we go back to Playa. Our room was clean. The staff were helpful, friendly, and attentive. The hammock just outside the room was a great touch (perfect for waking up before my SO and getting some morning reading done. Other reviewers summed it up nicely: this is the place to go if you want to be as close as possible to the beach, 5th Avenue, and taxis/colectivos without feeling like you're stuck in the middle of a resort town.

This hotel is exactly what I was hoping for: low-rise (2 stories), relaxed, one short block from the beach, and everything else even more close by - excellent location to be in the middle of everything and yet far enough away to have quiet at night. Playa del Carmen can be noisy at night (the discos/bars begin to blare their bad music at 10 p.m. and go until 3 a.m. ) There were a couple of nights that the neighbours to the hotel were quite noisy with a party, but the management was very concerned that guests were being disturbed and called the police - quiet again at 12 midnite.

It's got a bohemian feel, but with all the comforts you like - comfy bed and pillows, super clean, plenty of hot water, toiletries provided, security, continental breakfast a bonus and a wee patio with individual hammocks. And great staff - all very nice! Super value too!

Great hotel with friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms, but not fancy. Just two blocks walking to the beach and the main tourist area. Basic breakfast in the morning is included. Has some limited parking guests can use when renting a car

Perfect location, close to everything - 5th Ave, the beach, the Collectivo buses (amazing!), awesome restaurants. Stefano was an amazing help, he gave us lots of information. The room is lovely and comfortable, big bed, hammock, air con, everything you need and great value for money. Would definitely return and stay at Barrio Latino again. This was my first ever trip to Mexico & I fell in love with Mexico & Playa del Carmen.
