The Blue Parrot is centrally located on 5th Avenue which is the main strip of Playa Del Carmen which has numerous bars, restaurants and shops.
The hotel was reasonably priced for bed and breakfast and the room was adequate for a our needs and well maintained. There is a large shower area separate from the toilet.
The other part of the hotel is literally round the corner on the beach front and this is where you go for breakfast and have access to the sunbeds.
Breakfast included in the price is fruit and toast but other items are available if you want to purchase them. We ate lunch in the restaurant a couple of times and it was reasonably priced, good food.
The hotel has cards which enable you to get 50% off at The Gym which is just down the road although it still cost about £5.
The safe can be used for free and there is free wifi when at the beach front part of the hotel.
I enjoyed my stay at the Blue Parrot but the noise from the nightclub at night did impact. It literally reverberates the room from about 11pm to 5am (I knew what time it was whenever I woke up in the night by whether the music was still going). My advice would be to stay out till 5am!
We did drink in the Blue Parrot on a couple of occasions. Girls get in free and we were given plenty of alcohol (although probably not of the best quality but what do you expect for free!)
The hotel isn't luxury but it certainly has character.
We took the bus from the airport to Playa which cost about £6 each and took around an hour.
