La Pasion Hotel Boutique by Bunik
Ranked #17 of 215 Hotels in Playa del Carmen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2017

Wow! What a terrific little hotel in the middle of town!

My wife and I wanted to spend some time away without the kids, so we decided on Playa del Carmen. We're not big beach people, so we knew we could save some money by staying off the beach. TripAdvisor research led us to La Pasion and we couldn't have been happier! (No children under 14...which is nice!)

It's a small hotel right next to the city "square". There is a terrific rooftop pool where you can enjoy a drink from the bar while watching the activity in the square. You can literally stand in the pool and watch people having fun in the park.

The staff at the hotel was wonderful! Jesus, Michel, and the rest of the staff took terrific care of us and helped us plan a couple excursions. It helps that my wife speaks fluent Spanish, but the whole staff seems to speak terrific English so don't let the language-barrier be an issue. I speak enough Spanish to kind of get by, but they were all very accommodating and patient.

The room we had was wonderful. It had a balcony overlooking a second pool and gardens and if it weren't so humid, we would have enjoyed the balcony more. The room was always spotless and the A/C worked great. The housekeeping was immaculate. Our trip was an anniversary trip and the hotel knew this. The housekeeper took the time to spell out "Happy Anniversary" in Spanish on our bed with hundreds of separate little flowers, making for a nice surprise welcome for my wife.

The hotel has a restaurant onsite that has terrific breakfast. The deal we booked included free breakfast for 2 each morning. And this was a FULL breakfast, not just a continental breakfast. Pancakes, omelettes, ham, bacon, etc. were on the menu along with fresh fruit and really good coffee. We ate there each morning and were well-taken care of.

You are in the center of everything without having to pay the price. We easily walked all over the place and only took a taxi for an out-of-the-are cooking class. The main shopping and dining road is only 3 blocks away. It's a great place to walk and people watch.

We would definitely return to La Pasion. My wife, Polly, enjoyed brushing up on her Spanish skills with the staff and I enjoyed being taken care of by a terrific staff at a wonderful hotel. The owner should be proud of his hotel and employees!

Room Tip: We loved room 210. Shower, big tub, nice patio, cold A/C.

Centrally located on the Playa del Carmen plaza, away from the hectic Port. Superb staff, very helpful and friendly. Small rooms ok for most travelers. If you are cenote diving w/ all your gear, it is small. Restaurant associated with hotel is ok but vegan unfriendly. Restaurant Kaxaka adjacent to hotel better choice. Hotel has lots of amenities and a lovely view from the roof pool and bar. Overall, a good choice for many travelers.

Can't say enough great things about this hotel. A few things of note...

1 - The staff was kind, accommodating, and very helpful. They offered great guidance on local activities and were very friendly.

2 - We virtually had the entire hotel to ourselves. Not sure if it was because of the time of year, but there was almost no one in the hotel which made visiting the pools very easy and peaceful. The cabanas on the roof are beautiful and I can imagine what kind of great parties can be thrown up there for groups.

3 - The ONLY reason I'm giving this 4 Stars rather than 5 is because of the breakfast food at restaurant downstairs. Although it was included with the room rate, it was "ok" at best. The service was friendly, but I think the food would be better if it was served hot and immediately after it's finished cooking. Breakfast sandwich and omelets were served at room temperature without the cheese melted.

4 - Location is GREAT! There are a least 2 Pharmacies within a few blocks and it's literally a 5 minute stroll to the beach.

5 - In case you want to hop on the ADO bus back to Cancun or to Tulum, the bus station is literally just 2 blocks away.

My boyfriend and I came to Playa for a wedding and La Pasión was perfect! The bed was large and comfortable. The hotel was quiet and beautiful. We had a gorgeous patio that overlooked the courtyard. We loved the rooftop pool, jacuzzis and bar! The service was excellent - super friendly staff fluent in English. The parking is a locked garage so your rental car is very safe. We were served delicious breakfast and wine and cheese at night! I'll always come back to La pasion! Also - perfect location.

Great service and location. This is a cute little boutique Hotel in Playa. Just a few blocks from 5th and all the action it is in a more laid back location. Roof top pool is amazing overlooking a plaza for local people watching. Only downfall was our room location which was up several fights of stairs . Our particular room was not in a location accessible by elevater. I booked on Orbitz a king room but we did not get what we booked.
