Blue Parrot on Fifth Avenue ★★★

Good location, reasonable price

Would recommend Mon, Mar 8, 2010
It was only a short walk to the beach area where they served daily breakfast with a breathtaking view. We stayed at the extension on the main walking strip and it was very convenient for night life, but not too noisy. The mattresses were a bit hard but the room was clean with good service. Security was good (we felt safe). A good place to stay if you're on the go since there is not really a view. We were satisfied with our 4-night stay.

Misrepresentation Not Tropical Paradise

Would not recommend Sat, Mar 6, 2010
If you are looking for a place to party while basically sleeping in a night club good news: THIS IS THE PLACE! It is located right in thump, thump, thump-land. However, the worst part is the misrepresentation of the pictures throughout the web. Just beware when booking and make sure not to stay at the 5th Ave location, actually don't stay at either. And something to make clear,,,, there is NO pool. Friday and Saturday night prepare your earplugs to be inserted at 4am as you try and sleep on concrete, oops I mean their bed(s). No wonder there are massage parlors every 20ft. This place sucks.

great location in the heart of 5th ave and all the night clubs, but the service was horrible. our a/c did not work the entire stay nor did our phone. we had to walk to the reception area everytime we needed to make a call. they refused to change our room.

a place to crash....

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 6, 2008
I have to admit I stayed at an amazing place in the jungle of Talum for 4 days first La Selva Miraposa so the Blue Parrot Suites paled in comparison to start. The security guard couldn't get our door open so we had to wait for them to repair the lock. A studio which was fine. The bathroom is a 1 person only very small, shower only. The bed and pillows are super hard I still have a neck ache! The maid came and only made the bed! They didn't clean up the sink area or leave new towels! We had to ask for towels to be brought up. The hotel is not on the beach and you can't see it from the hotel maybe if you get one of the top floor palapa rooms. The free breakfast is white toast and fruit with either a mini glass of juice or coffee. the staff at the beach club are very nice! Playasia restaurant was ok. We ordered the coconut shrimp for $20 you get 4 shrimp no side dish and it was very salty. We found out from the awesome diving guys that you could take the bus that goes straight to the airport for $8!! Pool is ok filled with kids every day, surrounded by all the rooms. Oh yeah also our cold water was turned off mid shower! and when we had a do not disturb sign on the door a messenger was banging on it to give us a note, luckily we were walking up to the room not sleeping at the time! The plus's its close to the beach,restaurants, & shopping. Just out of ears way of all the party noise. If you just want a place to store your stuff and sleep it will be just fine.

Attractions

We went snorkeling with Reef quest divers through the blue parrot and they are great! Definitely go snorkeling!

Would recommend Sat, Aug 2, 2008
The blue parrot 5th ave was in a perfect location. The room was very clean and a nice size. The music from the club does get a bit loud at night. Lots of shopping and restraunts around along with the beach down the street.

Shopping hint

At night the streets are lit up with lots of fun differnt kinds of lighting and music is all around

Almost a great place

Would recommend Sun, May 25, 2008
Everything was very good during my stay at the Blue Parrot 5th Av at Playa del Carmen with only one thing that I did not liked. The AC at the room was as noisy as an old airplane, we had to turn it off in order to be able to sleep. Everything else was excelent. The room was very confortable, the hotel is right where you want to be in Playa del Carme and the staff was very nice.

Nightlife hint

Get the most of your visit to Playa spending the day at mamitas beach (about 15 minuts walk from the Blue Parrot) and then enjoy the shopping and bars of the 5ta avenida rigth by the hotel.
