I'll make this short and sweet. We loved this little hotel! The front desk was so nice and even gave our toddler beach toys to play with. Loved the breakfast and especially the variety of fresh juices. This is where I developed a love for grapefruit juice. Had fun being in the best location just off of 5th street and... More

This was the first hotel we stayed in in Mexico and it was a great start for our trip. The hotel is located in a perfect location just a few minutes walk from the beach and 5th Avenue.

Stayed at Riviera del Sol from 2/19-2/16. We wanted to try something different on this vacation. We’ve always walked by these cute boutique hotels in Playa. This year we decided to try one. We wanted to break out of the all-inclusive. We wanted better food, drinks and service. It exceeded expectations. We stayed in room 301. It’s on the top... More

Totally satisfied with the experience. Next time I'll stay longer at playa. Close to everything you need. The only thing not available was the laundry service. Not a big deal for a solo traveler. Coming back for sure!
