    Charming botique hotel near everything

    Nice little hotel. We were escorted to our room by a friendly staff member who spoke excellent English. You can get lost in the maze, so make sure pay attention to where your room is! The restaurant/bar serves poolside which is really nice, and the location is near many restaurants and shops, not to mention the best part of beach. The hotel offers discount coupons for Kool beach club but they only work for the plastic lounge chairs (that were never available during our stay). I really enjoyed my stay at Aventura Mexicana.

    Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

    Two of the best places to eat are the Cuevo de Chengo (Cave of the Monkey) on 38th St near the beach and El Fogon across from Mega. Cuevo has great service, food and ambiance with a little stream running through the dining area. El Fogon doesn't look like much but the food is excellent and inexpensive. Well worth the walk from 5th Avenue.

    Hotel located in 24th St of Playa Del Carment. Within walking distance to 1st St, you can find Ado bus station to Xcarnet/Xel-ha/Tulum or Ferry station to Cozumel. Very convenient.

    Unbeatable Service

    The hotel is off the beaten track (quiet) but only 1 block from the main shopping/dining district. The grounds are beautiful with pools, gardens and waterfalls. A winding path through the grounds and the "villa" type setup of the hotel allows everyone privacy and access to the courtyard. There is an adult and a separate family pool. The rooms are well appointed, modern, and in keeping with a Mexican theme. Housekeeping was great. The restaurant on grounds served 3 meals and had a complete bar. The food was as good as if not better than the other restaurants in the area and we ate meals there many times. Again the wait staff was well above average. Another asset to this hotel was the guest services staff....anything, anytime. They came through with every request big or small. We have never had a more positive hotel experience and will definately visit again.

    If you are spending the day at the beach, rent chairs at a beach club and get there early in the day. Chairs are gone by afternoon.

    Great Place

    The hotel was great. the staff was helpful and friendly and the rooms and grounds were clean and well maintained. The only thing that seemed amiss was that the hot tub didnt seem to be operating normally but, who needs a hot tub in paradise?

    For a great massage, check out Veronicas. It's just a few blocks south on 5th and is very affordable.

    Highly recommended, you can't go wrong

    This hotel has it all; great staff, great location, great rates. Just returned yesterday and already planning another trip with family members so that they too can experience Adventura Mexicana and the wonder of Playa del Carmen.

    Cozumel, don't miss it. Rent a jeep or VW bug and explore the island. Isla Mujeres, you gotta go. We took a snorkle catamaran from Cancun but you can take an inexpensive ferry.

    An Excellent Experience

    Aventura Mexicana was an excellent choice for us. We knew we wanted a "value" hotel, and that is exactly what we got. Great price, good service. Within just a few steps from the hotel was the "5th Avenue" of Playa del Carmen with literally hundreds of restaurants. The beach is only a 5 minute walk. If you are looking for a full-service hotel this is not the right choice. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, relatively simple rooms, this is it. The restaurant had great, very well-priced food. The massage also was a good value.

    Another Fantastic Stay

    Our 3rd stay at this hotel and can't find a thing to complain about. It's a beautiful, quiet and friendly place. Our bartender was amazing at giving restaurant suggestions and we loved the great drink specials (2 coronas for $3!) Front desk staff always smiling and helpful and great food. Will be back for sure!
