Very nice and clean place, close to the collectivo station, 3 blocks from the main street. So the location for us was very good. And the price is cheap. We slept there for 4 nights and was very pleased.

Stayed: October 2017, travelled as a couple

Hotel:
Hotel was very clean and very accommodating. Rooms are nice size and all come with a refrigerator. Very nice pool and well maintained hotel. The suite is absolutely beautiful.

People. Excellent staff. Diane is great manager and her staff are very accommodating and friendly.

Location: In the heart of Playa del Carmen but not on the main strip where they party all night long. Your maybe 5 blocks from beach and Ferries to Cozumel. Walmart is 2 blocks away for supplies. Bus station is also 2 blocks away.

Right in the city of Playa del Carmen but once you walk into the hotel grounds you feel far away from the busy streets. It's within walking distance of pretty much everything and only about 5 blocks from the beach. Very clean and safe with hot water, air conditioning, refridgerator and hot plate.

Excellent hotel. If you can and it's not booked - get the suite. They only have one but it's worth it. I loved the home away from home feel.
It's not a all inclusive of course - and I've been to all of those..it's like you are at home with a great courtyard. Coco the cat is an added bonus. So is Mike. Lol
Romeos Italian restaurant and the lion food truck are the BEST
This boutique hotel was everything I expected which was AWESOME
Thanks again El Acuario
We will be back
