    playa del carmen getaway

    Hotel las palapas has many good points if you re not into the huge all inclusive resort and want a casual laid back atmosphere that doesn't just feel like more of what we have in the States, only different local: then Mahekal and Las Palapas may be just what you are looking for . There are plusses and minusues. Pluses----#1 the thatched roof palapas and the thicket of coconut grove jungle feel let you are definitely in an exotic locale. You have an individual hut as we had or you have either the downstairs or upstairs of a thatched roof hut. Always your own patio or balcony, equipped with hanging hammocks to rest in.All restaurants, bars, etc are all open air . The rustic charm of this place and ambiance , along with location is for me about the best in Playa Del Carmen.#2----Probably one of the biggest and best stretches of beach in Playa Del Carmen with lots of sunbeds and shade available #3----- truly incredibly wonderful staff. They go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one. Also you are not just a number here to them because resort is much smaller than most.. Now the minuses: #1) Dinner is a little lack luster. I would prefer to eat in town. Waiters and staff are excellent hard workers, but dinner most nights I would rate at a 4 or 5 on a scale of 10. Breakfast and lunch are both 9 and 10's, but not dinner. #2) Our bed in the jungle view delux was very hard and I woke up sore a few nights. They need to upgrade mattress ot I will need to sleep in hammock next time! Bathroom we had though was lovely and spacious--------Overall, I would absolutely come back because the staff is the best . The stretch of beach is the best, the rustic charm makes me fell like I am really getting away to a beautiful exotic place, rather than a big hotel Breakfast and lunch were very good and we can t beat the price for what you get..Also, I know that after Dec 14' they will be doing renovation like they are to the sister property Mahekal next door. We had stayed last year at Mahekal and the beds were fine. The staff will try to accommodate you in any way they can.Hopefully replace mattress in many rooms.

    Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

    --Yal - ku lagoon. Only costs a few bucks to get in; much less than Xel Ha and 100 times less tourists. --Akumal beach if you snorkel there you will absolutely get to see and swim with the sea turtles. No need for tour. Just bring your mask out into the water. They are protected there.
