I was part of a diving group from Poland.
We spent several nights at the Barrio Latino , and when the group left I spent more nights because I loved the place!
Great wifi service and free international calls including my Country.
Very close to the beach and very calm and safe at night.
Staff is very friendly and the owner knows his work : I knew several repeating clients , an important number of people around 50s, younger couples, and a funny mix of straight and gay clients from Europe, Usa, Canada.
The hotel is very well designed and the rooms with terrace and hammock open to a relaxing green area.
I totally support the policies for the local environment and workers seem to follow them, too.
I had a look in the area : this is the best bet for me.
Hotel Luna Sol is overrated , is only one block back but the block is dark, and maybe since the owners are selling had less success at the moment (even so it was nice, but I would defenetly recommend Barrio Latino over Luna Sol, Casa Tukan, Nina) : none of them include the courtesy international calls (and local too), the garden, the wifi, the parking, the breakfast all in one.
About Playa del Carmen, I think it is a great place to visit and use it like a safe basis (and funny too) , while we spent most of the days diving the caves and open sea.
Bravo Barrio Latino!
