  • the hotel garden is nice and the rooms clean, but a bit outdated... the problem was that the entire building ran out of water supply from around 6 pm to 2 am... in saturday :(
  • Is a really nice place. Definitely comin back ASAP
  • Blues parrot was a crazy place to party. It was a club in the heart of the night life district overlooking the beach. The always had great parties, great acts and a great vibe. Its a shame it has been closed since January 2017 after the last BPM festival.
  • It's right in the center of things, but it's also next to 2 night clubs a large bar which are open until 5am and on the main street that traverses Playa Del Carmen. Noise is an issue if your trying to sleep. Rooms were OK. AC was killer. There are a lot of options for places this isn't bad if you want to be in the thick of things
  • Great place to stay.

Where to stay in Playa del Carmen

Look no farther than the shorefront if you're after a luxury hotel or resort with a swimming pool--some of the largest and most lavish options lie a few minutes from the town center, offering spacious settings and impeccable views over the water. The town center--especially the main street, Quinta Avenida--brims with smaller and more budget-friendly accommodations, a bit farther from the beach but just a stone's throw from a wide range of eateries and night spots.
