“Authentic, clean and comfortable...Will stay here again for sure!”
Reviewed 22 April 2010

The atmosphere was very authentic with pallapa style roofs, balconies with hammocks, mexican style sinks, etc. It felt cozy and comfy because anyone going into your room must enter the office first, all the rooms face an adorable pool surrounded by lots of plants, free wi-fi, coffee, and water. We awoke each morning naturally to a bit of sunlight, birds chirping and the church bell. We returned each night to a clean room with fresh towels and even little towel animals on the bed:) Great value, location, environment.

We stayed in Hotel Playa del Karma for two weeks and we had a wonderfull time there.
It started with checking in, that was very personal and we immediately felt very welcome.
It's a small hotel with very charming and cozy rooms. We had a nice cabin with a palmtree roof, a small terrace with a hammock. The room was beautiful with a nice bathroom, and it was all very clean.
We experienced the hotel as a small, quiet and relaxing place. It's like a little jungle in the middle of a busy Playa del Carmen, because they have a beautiful green garden surrounded by the cabins.
The hotel is just two streets away from the main street of Playa del Carmen and just 3 minutes walk to the beach.
We loved our stay in this gorgeous hotel very much and we recommend it to everywone who is looking for a lovely time in Playa del Carmen and who wants to avoid the big and commercial all-in resorts.

I truly wanted to write a review as soon as we returned home but the commitments actually never allowed me to fully dedicate a few words for them. The level of comfort, staff professionalism, courtesy and friendliness, delicious breakfast etc.. all were better than expected! I trusted tripadvisor when We planned our vacation and was surprised that all those previous reviews were exactly right. We had indeed found the best hotel there was! We even decided to stay a bit longer than originally planned because of what a great time we were having but they were fully booked. We went down to Tulum and quickly learned that that an All Inclusive vacation was not at all for us and that the calmness and personal care at Playa del Karma was definitely far better than the all Inclusive where we stayed. Eventually we went back to Playa del karma and checked in to another Nativo room. I must say that we thoroughly enjoyed both rooms. The quietness of the garden space with the small pool, the cascade, the temazcal steam bath and the singing birds was just an experience for the 2 of us. Also, the hotel is very close to everything that if you want restaurants, bars, etc... We definitely recommend Playa del karma. ( Kasandra&Carlos)

We just returned from our stay this past week. It was just as we thought reading from the reviews. The staff was great, especially Luis he answered all our questions and made sure everything was fine. We went to the breakfast the hotel offered which was better than we thought, so that was a plus. Some people said the location was way out there but we thought it could not have been any better. Just 5 minutes from 5th ave and 8 min from the beach it was in the perfect spot. The one bad thing about the place was the Mosquito's and bug problems. We were there for 7 days and did not notice until about our 3rd but we left with numerous bug bites and we even had to purchase some bug spray at the local Walmart ourselves which sucked. That was really the only problem we encountered.

I did my homework in Playa and took the time to walk into a bunch of hotels and actually look what was available. Aqua Luna had alot to offer, great staff, this safe haven was only a few blocks to the beach!!! and a free hot breafast. I will be back next winter.

Stayed 13 nights. Family of 4. 2 boys 11 and 13 yrs old. Very small quiet hotel. Great price, tasty breakfast, short walk to sister resort, beach and awesome resturants on 30th ave. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Would highly recommend for someone looking for value, but close to everything. Really appreciated the king size bed, loft with twin beds, oversize bathroom, towel animals, and lush gardens. Would have like pools to be warmer, less travelers that smoked, maybe few more lounge chairs near the pool. Loved the free wi fi and use of internet in the lobby and also the free water and coffee. It was a great 13 nights!!!!!
