“Ok hotel to stay for a night or two”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2007

The hotel was in a great location. We just stayed one night here, and that is probably all I would do. Our room was nice, but pretty loud. Something banging, sounding like base drums all night long. Our friends rooms, REALLY smelled badly of mildew. (I read all reviews of places and go to Mexico a few times a year. I know people complain about rooms smelling all the time, and that has never bothered me, but their room absolutely reeked. It wasn't the normal mildewy smell.) But, like I said, it was a good place for staying one or two nights at the max.

Worst hotel to stay at. Lost reservations,very rude receptionist. Noisy only when your sleeping or trying to sleep. (they don't tell you there is a band that plays underneath the hotel from 10pm to 5am.)shakes the hotel walls. No hot water and pressure most of the time, toilets don't flush properly, Very pricy for what you get($85. U.S a night)Very disappointed, ruined vaction at that point, never come back there ever again.

I stayed here for two nights in August and was extremely happy with my stay. The hotel and rooms were of a very good standard and the staff were so helpful.
The location is great and there are a couple of excellent restaurants just around the corner-Hemmingways and also one just across the street(the name escapes me) both serving Mexican cuisine for a reasonable price.

I would stay here again and may do so as I am returning next year.

We fell in love with this hacienda from our first view of it. From the outside, it truly is lovely, with its arched gate entry showing a tantalizing peak of the interior courtyard. Picture book old Mexico.

However our room was not as picture perfect. We turned on the room air conditioner and 2 hrs later, the room was an oven. The air conditioner was putting out hotter air than most heaters. After 2 attempts to fix it, we turned it off. There was a sliding door to the balconey and opening it did cool the stifling room, but also brought in all of the street noise.

Another minor inconvenience was that we could not get hot water in the bathroom sink. However the shower did work well.

But the absolute worst feature of the room was the king bed. Sleeping on it was pretty similar to laying a sheet on top of concrete...unfortunately a VERY accurate description.

Overall, it was a hotel we would admire from the outside, and take a picture of, but there are many lovely hotels in Playa del Carmen. We would try one of them the next time.

Decided to stay one more night in MX so booked hotel thru Spa Palace desk (they were full--WAAAAH). Got basic room for $80--sunken double beds, MUSTY, so-so bath on first floor. Disappointed so we went for a drink. Came back and asked about better room--they said they could give us a suite for $16 more, so I grabbed it. Well, lemme tell ya!! Aside from some toilet problems it was a gem!! They only have one room like this and it's on the brochure--too cool. Kinda like the Flintstone's vacationed in MX. Entry with small sitting area+balcony, large BR with king Bed(hard as a rock--no pun....) table and chairs, fridge (remember to plug it in!!) beamed ceiling, stucco with funky paint and tiled bath/shower +jacuzzi tub (window, candle, rocks) painted sinks. Very fun and what I like to think of as "vacation hacienda". I loved it. Pool is very small so only plan for a few days--maybe transition to try the "town" feeling--I prefer all-inclusives 4+stars for other stays but would go back a day or so again. Remember--there's only ONE suite.
