We stayed here on two separate occasions while laying over in Playa del Carmen on our way to another location. So we didn't do an extended stay.
What works: We paid about $60USD, which is a good value for the area. Even though the hotel is on a busy street, all of the rooms face a courtyard and are very quiet. It's off the main drag (believe me, you don't want the main drag) but it's a super easy walk to the restaurants and the beach. Just a block away from the ADO bus station. Best of all- a KING bed which is practically unheard of in the land of the Mayan double bed.
Beware: The interior courtyard is very tranquil and the plunge pool is nice but the moisture and vegetation attract the mosquitos. Lost a pint of blood attempting an evening read in the hammock on the porch. The shaded courtyard also means that the rooms don't get much sun. There isn't really a social scene here so you'll need to hit the beach or bars for that.
I'd recommend this to anyone who wants modest accommodation for a few nights.
