The location is great, a stones throw from the beach and in the middle of all the Playa action. (this good location comes with some nightclub noise but nothing that will keep you awake.) Showers have good pressure with piping hot water. In short the room is all you can ask for with the only issue being the AC above the bed so blowing directly on you all night. Whether this is a good or bad thing is personal preference. Pool is small but not bad for the price. Full of children and scuba lessons so might be best to head to the beach but hey that's why we come to Playa.
Restaurant is set in a nice garden and was nice for a quiet dinner if you wanted to stay off the strip for the night.
Now for the not so good. Wifi is non existent either in the rooms or communal areas. It connects in the common area but you will grow old waiting for things to load so if choosing to stay assume you will need to head out to a bar/restaurant if you need to check emails. A big negative given that wifi is a must for any decent hotel these days.
If you want a room with TV, look elsewhere as it is a 19 inch with no reception but hey.
Renovations are being completed on the hotel at present, painting and some minor repair works so this comes with some daytime noise. Looks like they will be finished in a few weeks so should be a benefit once complete.
All in all not a bad place to stay especially if you want to be in the thick of the nightlife. The lack of wifi lost this place a couple of stars.
