My husband and I stayed here for three nights and four days after a 6 day touring trip of Mayan ruins of the Yucatan peninsula. Our studio was was on the top floor and could not have been more lovely. All rooms have a nice size balcony which is big enough to accommodate a hammock and looks directly towards the ocean. The room was very clean and well maintained daily. Be aware that the sun will definitely find its way into your room as the rooms have this small colored window near the ceiling that does not have a cover, but who wants to be in bed when the gorgeous beach is right in front of you! The hotel does not it's own drink or food service, but the one next door did and was happy to accommodate those who wanted items. One can walk to others nearby, too. There was someone giving massages on the beach under a netted area which my husband thought was great (paid the equivalent of $40 US). There are people selling cloth & leather bracelets on the beach which are cute, but there isn't supposed to be any soliciting on the beach...Definitely check out the main drag of shops and restaurants, though walking a few streets back will get you better beer prices and opportunity for more "local" eateries. My husband speaks Spanish so we had an easier go of things, but most of the hotel staff do not speak English. Even the front desk person was a bit off, but this area is so much better than "American" Cancun that I didn't mind. This area is/was visited by more Europeans, but now its at least 50/50 if not more North Americans. I suggest taking the boat over to Cozumel which is easily accessible. Don't count on a big swimming pool experience. The pool is more like a fountain separating the hotel into halves. Definitely go back, though. Oh, and highly recommend taking the bus from Cancun airport. Drops off right in the middle of Playa del Carmen.
