“just perfect !!!”
Reviewed 11 August 2010

we have just spent 8 days in this hotel and I can only recommand it !
the staff is very helpfull and nice. Rooms are cute, nice bed, spotless, cleaned every days ! there's a continental breakfast included in the price, which is very nice. It's close to the beach and to the 5 th avenue. Lots of nice restaurants around ! There's a free wi fi connexion which workes perfectly.
If you are looking for a small hotel with good service, good value, very well located, the Barrio Latino is the place to go !
We hope to go back there soon !!

Thank you very much!
Since you mention our improved wifi access, I will take the chance to invite all the web surfers looking for a free access point in Playa del Carmen, to visit Calle 4 , Hotel Barrio Latino block.
We opened a free spot covering all the block and is always open and free of charge.
Ciao!

I spent a week in this charming hotel after the cruise. The price was really good. Location is perfect just 3 min from the beach. Bus station is 3 blocks away. Easy to find and easy to get there. Staff is very helpfull and friendly. Free internet. Good access to Wallmart and local cafes. I will definitely recommend this hotel for young couples and backpackers. There is one thing which is not good you should wait for a hot water in bath tub for 5 min.

Barrio Latino was a great option for what we were looking for: a safe, comfy place to be in Playa Del Carmen without the excessive price tag and somehow away from the party block. It seems to be well run by a detail-oriented owner. We definitely recommend and would stay again.

PROS:
*Safe, the reception desk guy would open the locked gate every time we would arrive at night
*Friendly and Knowledgeable staff, always ready to help
*Comfy Beds
*Clean Rooms
*Walking distance to Bus Station
*Blocks from the main 5th ave.

CONS:
*No TV
*It's not close to the nicest part of 5th Ave.
*Bar behind the hotel can get noisy sometimes

I recently returned to Playa after more than 20 years and so much has changed. Now with so many choices for a place to stay I was thrilled to have found Barrio Latino Playa del Carmen - they were the perfect choice!

The Mexican feeling of the hotel was so welcoming, simple but with character, the beautiful garden (as well as the cutest cocker spaniels who stay for some hours in the hotel!) all made me feel instantly a part of Playa.

The room was sweet and subtly colorful - I felt like I was in the real Mexico - and with all the amenities too! I was most appreciative to learn that they take care to the environment and don't waste unnecessary energy (they kindly turned off the ac when I forgot once before I left for the day). There was just the right amount of morning breakfast choices too and the free WiFi was a great perk!

The staff was friendly and helpful (especially with the simple things I had forgotten after all these years) I definitely wanted their opinion on local restaurants because there were so many choices and not nearly enough time.

See you next year everyone at Barrio Latino!

I stayed here for 7 nights and it was absolutely lovely. The staff was friendly, helpful, and the area could not be better. I realized there were people coming from other areas further away just to use the beach that is one block away from this place.

There are a few culture shocks IN GENERAL coming to Mexico. The USA traveller can be picky. If you want the 5 star resort with hot water and perfect water pressure, this might not satisfy your tooth. However, if you are like me and you want a nice, comfortable, and great place at a great location while you eat and drink with the locals, this was a great choice for my first time at Playa del Carmen. I was a solo female traveller and felt very safe. The only thing is there is this bird that makes a weird noise at night (but that's not this hotel's fault). I found myself wearing ear plugs because of that bird. Besides that, this block was rather quiet and safe.

Wonderful place. As for the breakfast, I didn't eat there every day since I wanted to try local cuisine in area reataurants that were very inexpensive. The breakfast is basic. A glass of juice, cup of coffee, and a croissant with jam and butter (not really a croissant but a bread shaped like a croissant). It was good for the quick pick me up and later explore this wonderful town.

We chose this hotel from the Lonely Planet listing because the hotel we had originally booked (Hacienda Maria Bonita) was very noisy. The hotel us located two blocs away from Avenida 5, which means there is no bar / nighclub / restaurant / street noise in the immediate proximity. The buidling is in fairly good condition and is run by friendly gay staff. Rooms are spacious enough with very nice en-suite bathroom. Hot water takes some time to come, though.
The beach is 5 mn away. There is a shower available if you need to check out and want to spend your last hours on the beach.
Overall a very nice place, great value for the money, with friendly staff.

Amigos,
your post was nice and we really appreciated it.
Noise in Playa del Carmen, a carribbean town loved by young minded people, sometimes is a big issue .
We have a lucky location where locals and small business leave together, so we could say our block is quite all year long except Semana Santa and Christmas Eve when schools are closed and brand new sound systems from the neighborhood play loud till late night, but who comes to sleep at night that weeks?
Beach life and mayan architecture lovers should consider it when traveling and when choosing the right location ( which is usually not, around the Calle 12 string of bars).
We could be a right one =) .

My wife ( from mexico, female) and I (from Italy, male) , together with most of the workers at the hotel, feel we would like to re - mark a part of your opinion, which is now "Friendly Gay Staff" - a definition we don't totally fit in , and suggest it should have been : "Gay Friendly Staff" , which is approved by all of us, since we don't discriminate colors, sexual orientation, religious ideas, among others, but even so, we as a group represent several origins , orientations, and religions.
All together, we are very happy you felt we were friendly =) .
Have a great year!

Hotel have perfect location one block from noise on main ave and still close to beach. Services were excelent, everything was clean, fast, air condition workes well and rooms have large bed. Inside hotel is place were you can is under palm trees or in hammock which is in front of every room. Room service were excelent and they made animals from linen and towels almost every day. That is something more that you dont have in every hotel. Recepcion service was good as well and helpfull in the email and on the place also. Small minus is for small breakfast but you can buy more for small amount on place or you can go to local bakery. We were in Mexico for leisure and also for Maya ruins so we have to leave early many times - hotel is close to bus station so it is good for travelers.

Díky za vaše milá komentář!
We were very happy to have you at the hotel, your nice words have been shared with the cleaning staff & the reception guys, thank you again.
I have a good feeling when tourists like you use Playa del Carmen and small hotels like the Barrio latino, as a basis to visit the town, the archeological sites, and the natural attractions between Playa and Tulum, south, and even Cancun , Isla Mujeres and Isla Holbox north.
It is a smart way of spending safe independent holidays, and help local economy instead of concentrating all the budget in one big pocket .
