  • 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
  • Best Place Ever!!!! The place, the music, the service, the shows in the mini pool, the foam party...
  • Great loction for party seekers, noisy at night but decent rooms...
  • Blue parrot 5th Avenue, is a small do Step away from 12 Street and all of the night clubs in playa del Carmen. The rooms are updated and clean, service is satifactory.
