    Great hotel!!

    We loved Aventura Mexicana! The staff was extremely nice and their suggestions of restaurants and beaches were the best. The location of the hotel cannot be better. The pools are very nice, the restaurant is very good, and the environment is excellent and peaceful. We strongly recommend this hotel! The free breakfast is good enough, but for very little money you can add from a menu whatever you want.

    Died and gone to heaven!

    I hadn't been to Playa in 12 yrs! I hardly recognized it! Still wonderful atmosphere and great areas to drift aimlessly with joy! Our hotel was so close to the action, but felt like an oasis , with no noise and plenty of peace and quiet.[...], the masseuse worked her magic on the stressed body, Bistro staff, especially [...], provided smiling sweetness to daily meals and Happy Hour!We are already planning our trip back within 9 months.Definitely stay at Adventura Mexicana!As I said above, What is not to Love?!!!!

    Fantastic location

    This hotel was ideally located in the northern section of Playa Del Carmen. Just a short walk to a fabulous beach and next to a great Italian restaurant named Pummarolas. Directly across from the hotel is a fantastic fitness center called Evolve. My wife and I had a marvelous time and will definitely go back soon.

    Aventura Mexicana - Great Experience!

    Great, friendly staff. Clean and not too expensive. A short walk to the main part of 5th ave, but far enough away to be a little less crowded than the main area. Couldn't have asked for a better deal, and [...]at the front desk was beyond helpful when it came to tours and advice. Highly recommended hotel!

    Go to the Fusion bar for outdoor beach side entertainment. They have an outdoor stage with live music and also put on a fire dancing show on the beach. Not over crowded and very cool.

    Aventura Mexicana

    Aventura Mexicana was amazing! It's located far enough away from the craziness of 5th ave but it's just around the corner. The breakfast that is included is good and the prices if you want to order off the menu are really affordable. Our room was always clean and of course the towel art was fun! The air conditioning worked really well which was good after climbing the temple at Coba. The staff is very friendly and helpful! I would definitely stay here again if I go to Playa again!

    Couldn't have been any better!

    7 night stay with a room opening to a garden view. The staff was absolutely the most wonderful I've ever encountered. Jose at the front desk was incredible and the wait staff in the Mayan Bistro were unbelievable. Our room was kept nice and neat each day by Rossy and we go to know the other vacationers while we were there. It is a super location, right off of 5th Avenue and was only two short blocks from the Kool Beach Club. We would definitely go back and stay there

    Loved this little hotel, very comfortable - would definately stay again

    Pulling up to the hotel was not really what I expected when the driver said here we are but once we got in it was a different story altogether. Check in was very easy and a breeze, ALL the staff were very friendly and helpful/ personable. The hotel is very charming and relaxing, it has two water areas, a family side and an adult side. Pools may be on the small side for some but they were perfect for us, very few people were in either at any time and it was great to be able to cool off. There is a community computer with internet to use if you didn't bring your own, took me a bit to switch to english but worked fine once I did. If you want to book tours etc it is very easy to do at the front of the hotel. It is very easy to get around from this hotel and is close to 5th but you don't get the noise, there's an OXXO around the corner for beer smokes etc -- the bar fridge was nice to keep drinks cold for when the bar was closed. The bed was comfortable and the rooms very clean, a/c and fan worked very well, no problems at all. We later stayed at a 4 star all inclusive on Cozumel and I Much rather enjoyed this hotel over that one, Kudos to Aventura and the staff that make it this way. Would come back any time with no hesitation. Mucho Gracias!!!!

    Perfect oasis in Playa

    Spent two weeks here at the end of January. Staff were friendly and helpful especially the day we had HOT water coming out of the cold taps.(steamed so badly that it set off the smoke detector).It was rectified the next day and apologies received from Rob. Food and drinks were excellent at the Mayan Bistro....very pleasant atmosphere to socialize with other guests. Room was basic, a little musty and balcony too small for chairs so avoid room 2202 above kids pool if you like sitting out. That said it didn't bother us enough to be bothered asking to move.All in all a fantastic holiday. Love Playa del Carmen.

    Awesome little place

    This was my second time staying at the Aventura Mexicana (2010 and 2012). Excellent location right next to 5th st where all the action is, but far enough off (about 1.5 blocks) to avoid the noise. Rooms are absolutely sterile. Good TV's, three pools all well maintained. There's a bistro on the property with good food. Never saw a mouse, rat, bug, or even an ant. There's a resident stray calico kitty on the property who is a well-mannered mouser. I'm sure she would enjoy a can of tuna (get it from an Oxxo store nearby). She has issues with her eyes (I think she's partly blind) but is very sweet. She'll keep her distance but if you talk nicely to her she'll approach you.

    Great Family Hotel

    I just came back from a week-long vacation in Playa Del Carmen and I am very glad that I chose this hotel. All what you have seen in this forum about Aventura Mexicana is true. Great hotel with friendly staff; very well maintained with beautiful gardens and pools with nice bistro inside. Very safe and conveniently located to everything in Playa Del Carmen with free internet and parking. I strongly recommend this hotel for everybody regardless of age and/or trip purpose. In fact, I am already making plans to come back in the Fall to celebrate a special occasion.
