Two different hotels, one name: Blue Parrot. Located in the middle of the action in Playa del Carmen, with a unique and famous Blue Parrot Beach Club, these two Boutique Style hotels are very close to each other with different type of amenities, each one with its own charm.

BLUE PARROT 5TH AVENUE. Opened in July, 2005, the Blue Parrot Hotel 5th Avenue is the newest addition to the Blue Parrot family of unique boutique properties. Located at the epicenter of Playa del Carmen's hip and picturesque 5th Avenue, the newest boutique puts you steps from the best shopping, dining and clubbing that the town has to offer. Not to mention being just a short walk from the white sand beach of the Blue Parrot Beach Club. (VIP access included for all hotel guests!)The Blue Parrot Hotel 5th Avenue serves up contemporary style throughout seventeen cozy studios and one suite, all tucked away in a very private courtyard adjoining the restaurant Playasia. No pool.

BLUE PARROT SUITES. The Blue Parrot Suites--located about 50 meters from the beach--features 22 units in a variety of creative room configurations, including one and two bedrooms, deluxe and courtyard suites. Set in a lushly landscaped private courtyard and pool, the architecture of the Blue Parrot Suites follows the trendsetting lines of the original Blue Parrot Hotel, with the addition of larger, custom-designed interiors featuring Tommy Bahama furniture, Potter Barn bathrooms and fully appointed kitchenettes.

Way back in 1998, Newsweek magazine named the Blue Parrot Beach Club "one of the ten best bars in the world." Since then, things have only gotten better. As a hotel guest, there's one very important thing that you need to know about the Blue Parrot Beach Club; participation is optional. In other words, it is far enough away from the hotels that it won't disturb you--if you're not in the mood for nightlife. During the day, enjoy the beachfront lounge chairs complete with umbrellas and soak up the sun and sea while our daytime DJ guides you through a gentle sensual journey. There's no need to go anywhere else. We offer full service food and beverage from 7:30 AM. until 6:00 P.M.Come nightfall, the Beach Club undergoes a magical transformation as top international DJ's deliver an eclectic mix of music in three different environments. The beach dance floor tends to feature more pop and retro, while the Palapa Lounge offers the progressive dance mix that the Latin American and European customers tend to prefer. For a more relaxed chill out vibe, the palapa-covered sky bar offers dramatic overviews of the Caribbean and the beachfront dance floor.

perfect spot if you love partying and not sleeping at night

Everything was great except that is surrounded by clubs.did not sleep at all our first night here,very loud music kept us up all night until 7:00 am the following morning.we ended up sleeping with earplugs for the next 7 nights,very uncomfortable.breakfast and beach club are not available like post it on our itenerary.if you come to playa del carmen to relax this is not the place for you.

In the middle of the action

Perfect for party goers. One block from all nightclubs. You can hear the noise from the clubs up to 5am. This hotel on 5th. Street is no longer related to the suites with the same name in front of the beach. Therefore no access to beach, or pool amenities. This hotel is good for when on a budget and interested in partying until late. That is all. Rooms are outdated and the TV from last generation.

Excellent Experience

The location was excellent, me and my friends went to Playa del Carmen simply because we want to party at night and relax at the beach durging the day. This place have both things, its only a few feets from the beach and around ther corner of all the best bars and dance clubs in Playa del Carmen. The hotel was great, we were 6 friends and stay at 2 suits that connected thru a third floor terrace, it was awsome.. I reccommend this hotel!! and the price for the hotel plus car... it was the best price in all the web....

It was OK, the air conditioner worked well!!

The hotel was ok. The picture that is used on the site is of a higher class of rooms at another location. The hotel is in two buildings one is suites the other just a building with rooms. The main office is at the blue parrot club on the. beach, but the actual rooms are each 2 blocks in different directions. Ours was directly on 5th avenue, about 2 1/2 blocks from the beach. Our friends got a different room at the condo units for a substantial amount more for the stay. The room was basic... shower was in a corner of the room behind a curved wall. We had a king bed that was very firm. the safe was not operational, someone had removed the locking mechanism so we just hid out things in the room. Overall the room was fine, we only were in it at night to sleep, and the AC, which we couldnt not adjust, was nice and cool. The breakfast is a bit sparse as well, you get a few slices of fruit and coffee. If you want more you must pay; eggs, bacon, etc. For the price, and the location it is a reasonable deal.

Blue Lobster Restaurant just around the corner was fantastic (if you like rock lobster). You were able to select the tail you wanted from an iced area with tails up to three pounds. I have only seen larger lobster tails in cuba, so i doubt these were from the over fished areas near playa. In turn, they do cost a bit; my huge one pound tail was around $65 usd.

Good location and Real jungle

The location of the hotel is good, the concept of jungle is well maintained to appear like one is in real jungle no one there to attend except a watchman. There is no maintenance and no parking. it is quite tense if you come with a vehicle as the vehicle shall strand on the public road for the total night.

Great place

The suites were very clean and decorated in a carribean style . The bed was not a sleep number but comfortable. Kitchenette had a good variety of supplies The .pool was small in a beautiful garden court yard. The location we thought was great close to the 5th ave action and the beech . The staff was wonderful and so nice. we had a breakfast included it was fruit toast coffee and juice small for extra one could order off a reasonable menu . we stayed 5 days and would go back.

Right off the strip

If you want to party, this is a good spot to stay. It's not in the midst of the craziness, but just a block away. If you do not want to party the night away, its just loud enough where it could disturb your rest IF you don't come from a noisy city. The breakfast is included and the staff are very friendly. They do provide beach towels and a place to rest. I had no problems at all and I would recommend this place.

If you wish to try Mexican food, my recommendation would be to walk on 2nd street above 10th Avenue,and explore. The food will be cheaper and the staff friendly/kind. With most things, if they haggle to get you in, it's not local. Saying that though, the dining experience, even on the strip, was good.

Blue Parrot -- Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

I do NOT recommend the Blue Parrot Hotel. I booked a room at a hotel on the beach so I'd have access to chair and umbrella service, however, at the Blue Parrot they blast trance and club music at the beach, which gets progressively louder as the day goes on--not at all relaxing. I found out that many of the patrons had complained to the management about this, but management didn't care--they're more interested in attracting the party-goers willin to spend lots on alcohol--but there were none of these party-goers staying there. One day came back to my room at 4:30 and found that it still hadn't been cleaned--and they didn't seem nearly busy enough to warrant poor service.

The good and bad

The hotel is noisy. In the beach club, you are obligate to tip every time and if you don't do it, the people really get mad. Also the beach club is very noisy because electronic music.
