If you’re looking to stay at a 5 star resort in Playa del Carmen, find a different place to stay now. La Rana Cansada is not your typical tourist trap; rather it is a welcoming establishment, with an air of staying with your laid-back relatives. Owners Thed & Pia go out of their way to ensure you have a pleasant...

My husband and I have visited Playa del Carmen several times over the last ten years, and it’s been fascinating to watch its transformation from quaint fishing town and backpackers’ haven to vibrant travel destination attracting diverse international visitors. We’ve just returned from our most recent visit. Once again we stayed at La Rana Cansada because we enjoyed it so...

First trip to Playa was exceptional due in large part to La Rana Cansada. Close to everything and 'homey'. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff and proprietors mad us feel as one of the family. Can't wait to return. HIGHLY recommended !!!!

We didn't stay at the hotel, but went to the bar for drinks. The male bartenders were fine - we were sitting right up at the bar - but a quarter of the evening through they switched and there was a female bartender who was only interested in hanging out with her friends and getting free drinks from the customers....

I have traveled to Playa del Carmen many times in the past and a few years ago I finally found La Rana Cansada. I've stayed nowhere else since! La Rana is a quaint and charming hotel with Mexican style rooms and Mexican charm. A lovely garden area with tropical plants is central of the rooms,. There is a choice between...

When I travel to other cities, I want to experience the destination as much as possible. La Rana Cansada provides the feel of Mexico in your room! Mexican tile floors, cement walls, bright colors for the curtains and bedsheets. A little on the rustic side, but good. The courtyard is open with a beautiful canpoy of Bougainvillea. The bar is...

Great place to stay. Rooms are very basic but when in Playa we were only in our room to sleep. The bar in the hotel is great, lots of good fun. Welcoming and friendly staff. No problems whatsoever and will definitely stay there again. Very close to beach, close to 5th Ave. Beds were a bit hard - Walmart is...

Since I am often traveling solo and always afraid to get stuck in a place where it is only couples or very family oriented I am always looking for a place where it is easy to meet people. And La Rana Cansada makes it impossible not to. It may not be the best hotel when it comes to comfort (but...

I had just return from La Rana Cansada, it looked nice after reading the comments in here, but it was something different when I arrived. Here are some material facts instead of those “Friendly smiling people” type, frequently used. About the property... 1.No architecture, it is a small yard surrounded by rooms, dark and hot with bad ventilation. 2.There is...
