    Great Hotel

    Would recommend Tue, Feb 3, 2015
    Everyone was really nice at the hotel. I only dinged them on my review because we couldn't get any hot water, but we were only there for a night and it wasn't a huge deal for that amount of time for us personally. There was some noise from the street but we were expecting that and I was willing to accept that given the great location, its right off of 5th avenue which has A TON to do. I would stay again.

    Nightlife hint

    Expect a bit of street noise and music as a tradeoff for such an awesome location.

    Great, boutique Hotel

    Would recommend Mon, Feb 10, 2014
    Great boutique hotel right at the corner of 5th and 8th. There is street noise, but you are far enough from 12th that you will not hear the nightclubs. This was my 2nd stay here, and would recommend it again

    Great location for a nice room with fair price

    Would recommend Tue, Oct 15, 2013
    My room was comfy for the most part, didn't really like the open shower set up as the whole bathroom would get wet after a wash. AC was nice and cold... perfect for coming back in after a long day of running around

    Dining

    Mi Pueblo restaurant is much better than Tropical, which are both steps away from the hotel

    Great Location

    Would recommend Sun, Jan 2, 2011
    The hotel is situated in a great location. The street noise is pretty continuous until around 5am but we knew this in advance and had packed some ear plugs and had no problem sleeping at all. Its not obnoxious noise. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    Dining

    The upstairs bar has EXCELLENT food. We waited way too long to check it out but it was some of the best food we had the entire week. Shrimp Tacos and just about everything on the tapas menu is excellent!

    nice, but would not stay here again

    Would not recommend Mon, Dec 20, 2010
    Stayed at ElPunto for Dec 12-17. The hotel and rooms are just what is portrayed on the website. Very new and modern. My only complaint is the noise. Like any hotel on 5th Ave, it's loud till late hours. 5th Ave is the main tourist street and doesn't die down until about 2-3am. Sometimes later depending on the season. The hotel has a beautiful rooftop lounge. Although if you're staying in the rooms, the traffic up to and from the lounge is an annoyance, especially if you're trying to sleep. The doors in the hotel rooms are not noise insulated and you can hear the footsteps and voices at all hours of the night. The free breakfast and use of the beach club was a great plus, if it wasn't for this, I would have to say that this hotel is not worth it. If I had to do it all again, I would book another hotel for less and away from 5th ave. Although I would definately come back to the rooftop lounge @ El Punto to have some drinks and shrimp tacos! Regarding Playa del Carmen.... My first time here and I loved it. I would definately recommend renting a car and driving South to Tulum for the day. Also, when dining out, try to stay away from 5th Ave. Everything is overpriced and usually not authentic. The farther inland you go the better and cheaper the food becomes.

    Money saver

    Don't make the mistake of paying for parking like we did. You can leave the car on the streets as long as the curb is not painted yellow.

    Chic hotel

    Would recommend Sat, Sep 4, 2010
    If you're looking for a place close to the beach and action of Playa del Carmen, this is an excellent choice. There is no pool, but do you really need one if one of the best beaches in the world is a block away?Rooms are cozy and has all that you'll need: Big bed, Flat Screen, desk, safe, wi-fi, and view of 5th avenue. Yes, it may get noisy due to people buzzing along 5th avenue and musicians across the street, but that just let's you know you're alive. AND there's this really cool coffee maker that makes gourmet coffee and the refill cartridges are complimentary as well.I've been to Playa seven times in the last three years and this is definitely the best boutique hotel I've stayed at. There's also a restaurant & bar on the top level that's action packed at several nights. PLUS, the hotel was kind enough to give us complementary breakfast at the beachside club just several blocks away.Also, this hotel has the most beautiful reception staff in Playa. Always a pleasure to leave and go in the hotel, as well ask for towels & room keys. I don't know their names, but I just call them [...], [...], and [...] and I get smiles out of them. (Look it up :)Great hotel. Great location. Great Staff. PERIOD.

    Dining

    We've been here many times and have some good established restaurants: El Fogon at 30th and 8th (on 30th). TacoMania at 20th and 8th (on 8th, BEST VALUE). Chicken hut at 2nd and 20th (can't miss it, best chicken ever!). Gelato place at end of Corazon Avenue (by 5th). Pizza place at 24th & 5th.

    Confortable!!

    Would recommend Mon, Jul 19, 2010
    I liked the hotel location is convenience and just 5 mins from bus terminal. The room is cared and modern interior, I could use internet as free was important! Very close to beach too and eating breakfast at nice cafe where is beach side was nice. Breakfast was nice too! Fresh fruits, vegetable, bans, sweets, I stayed 3 night there, I enjoyed going there! Staff was friendly and enjoyed conversation with her. I like hotel amenities, they had put L'occitan, its my favorite. I want to come back when I go there again.

    Entertainment hint

    All is there! Shopping, night clubs, beach, cafe, restaurant, nice handmade shops... etc.
