Good for the price

If you like going to the hotel just to sleep, this hotel might be for you. The location is great, only one short block to the 5th St, where most restaurants and shops are. Coco Bongo (Famous Night Club) is a block away and many other night clubs close by. In the hotel all rooms face an internal patio, so you can hear people taking outside. During my stay I could hear from my room people taking in the reception area or coming in and out their rooms. The staff very courteous and attentive. The place very clean. I would recommend it.

very pleased.no complaints

We arrived prior to check in; they let us use a shower to clean up and change. When we returned, our luggage was in the room. We stayed in room 2 on the ground floor. I heard nothing of any street noise or noise from other guests. They staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful, not only here, but at the sister-hotel down the street where we ate breakfast. The room was cleaned every day spotlessly. They had a voluntary contribution for tips at check out, which they discussed at check in. I liked the idea, since I did not have to leave a tip every morning. I would definitely stay at any of this group's hotels on a return vista. Their desire to please was very evident.

Great !

This small, cosy, neat hotel was a delightful experience that I never imagine to have for such a bargain price. Location is superb,waking distance to everything you are waiting to visit and experience in Playa del Carmen. Rooms are comfortable, and so neat that makes you feel free of germs. Their small coffee and Internet free open area is very convenient, some people were having their own breakfast or lunch here as they have a microwave oven. The best surprise was to experience that all personal is well trained, courteous and goes beyond their duties, they make sure you feel they can help you at all times. For the price, location and service I feel this was one of my best hotel choices ever.

Great time

TThe trip was only for rest and to relax. The hotel was in a very good location and you had to take the breakfast at another hotel but the breakfast was very good at this other hotel which is 6 blocks away. The beach was 3 blocks away but I could have also used this sister hotel fora swimming pool. This hotel lacked nothing and was better than I expected. The hotel was clean and the staff was very helpful and I would use the hotel again.

Great location for the price

We stayed there for one night. The rooms were clean and the service was great. The only issue was that breakfast was about 3 blocks away and we didnt have time to go there in the morning, and during the whole stay there were no cups for coffee or tea, and staff members were unable to find any.
