Oldish hotel, very nice and friendly receptionist (annahi i think), she is passionate about providing all needed info's. Breakfast is served in a very nice restaurant in front of the hotel.. Noise can be a bit loud at night but that s what you get if u want to stay on the 5th avenue.

I do not recommend this hotel; some staff are really nice, but there a man that have super bad customer service, we are not allowed to have visits in our room, even they aren't sleep in. And if you want to have visit, they have to pay, but this is the ridiculous thing, we try to pay and the gentleman...

If you want to sleep, then this might not be a great option. We got a room facing the street and the pizzeria opposite decided to blast the tunes until 2am at night. I really didn't like Playa, and this was right in the middle of the nasty side of the town. Short walk to the beach however, and the...

Although I walked past it at first, once found I was amazed at the jungle-like decor with beautiful plants and open roof in the center of the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was on the third floor towards the back and it was very comfortable and quiet. They have coffee available in the mornings and evenings,...

This is a wonderful place to launch your adventure from. The rooms are clean and quiet. The layout is fun and beautifully designed. You're right of the famous 5th avenue with countless shops and restaurants but it doesn't feel like once you're inside.

Amenities are quite nice. This Hotel has a very nice décor (rustic) and includes breakfast every day. Served across the street and a nice full breakfast. It does get noisy in the evening and I suggest you get a room on the third floor or in the back of the hotel off 5th Ave.

I stayed at this hotel for three nights with a girlfriend while on a quick getaway to Playa del Carmen. I normally dont go places that are so touristy, so this place made a big difference in my stay. The staff (Edgar!!) is super friendly and helpful. They upgraded us to a nicer room and let us check in early...

Given that we checked in on Christmas Eve after late flight, it was a warm reception, hefty cash deposit required for possible damages and room on ground floor off lobby which over our 5 nights got rather loud and noisy from other holidaying guests and families in multiple rooms. Lovely morning and late evening coffee and biscuits in lobby and...

This hotel is centrally located but feels set off the beaten path. I loved the trees growing on the inside. The room was spacious and comfy. The front desk was friendly and there's nothing I didn't like about my stay here.

We booked two rooms overnight for our family so we could explore Playa del Carmen enroute to Tulum. The staff was delightful and its location allowed us to walk anywhere in town. The property is tropical, family friendly and the immediate neighborhood is very local, not overly touristy. The rooms were simple, but clean, air conditioned and safe. The only...
