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!
