My husband and I chilled out at PL for a week in February, it was fabulous. We were in a ground floor room by the pool and had no complaints. We spent hours on the beach reading, swimming, and relaxing. We lunched at the bar a few times and I highly recommend the guacamole, the cebiche, and the drinks...Victor is a skilled bartender. The dining room was perfect. I love that I can go to breakfast and dinner with no shoes! Martin and Antonio ran the dining room with professional ease and the food was always perfect. My favorite breakfast was huevos Motuleños and my favorite dinner was puerco pibil. David arranged for our two outings and both exceeded our expectations. The first one was a cab that took us to Akumal and Yal-ku for snorkeling and then on to Tulum for a hike around the site...Yolanda was our cab driver and she took great care of us and it was really enjoyable to hang out with her all day. If you like snorkeling don't miss Yal-ku but get there before noon. It's gorgeous! The second outing was a day-long tour that included Chichen Itza, a mayan buffet lunch, swimming in a cenote, and a stop in Valladolid. We loved the whole thing. Sure the food at the buffet was not that great, but who cares. Chichen itza was awesome and the cenote swim was incredible...make sure you jump in from the highest platform because it is really an experience! The rest of the week we returned to our lazy days on the beach. It was a perfect vacation. We did go into Playa del Carmen a couple of times and really 5th Av. is not worth it. Visit El Fogon across from the mega mart for some tasty tacos. When we left PL we were sad as we have a policy not to return somewhere...life is too short. But we are rethinking that policy and I hope to be back at PL for a week of RR in 2015.
