Overpriced Coffee- Typical for Starbucks. HOWEVER, They did not give us the correct change and then told us we would have to wait until the opened the cash register after the next customer. How long would that be? They acted like is was an innocent mistake and then they though we would walk away without getting the correct change. I... More

All Starbucks outside of the country are not like what you get at home so DONT expect it. Soymilk different, shots different, recipes different and pastries, well, a lot better. You'll survive without Starbucks till you get home. Go local.

This Starbucks has decent a/c and you can buy official mugs here with Playa del Carmen Starbucks logo. A good place for after shopping 5th avenue all day.Internet is pretty good there also, and the coffee we all crave.

First time visiting Starbucks in Playa Del Carmen and was surprised (I guess not really) to see so many Starbucks. It has what you expect just like what you'd expect our of McDonald's. If sbux is your thing... Well, enjoy.

I was looking to purchase a french press and they didn't even have one. I was not impressed with the service, none of the staff acknowledged me until several minutes after I was standing in line and there was no service with a smile. The girl who waited on me was not positive in any way and not informative when... More

Bad service, expensive and be aware of extra charge on your bill, they tried to charge me for a sugar. It is not much, only about $ 1USD, but barista just added it on my bill without an explanation, while sugar was stored on the condiments stand 3 feet away from me. No WI-FI even with a purchase….., on top... More

I have never been crazy about Starbucks coffee. However, when I was traveling in Playa Del Carmen I thought I'd give them a chance there thinking that they would have higher standards in how the produce and prepare their coffee, especially since coffee in Mexico and in neighboring countries gets done right. I have to say the coffee in Starbucks... More

Great location, service and clean washroom. Had no issues with my order. I prefer the au cacao cafe as a change from Starbucks.
