Very comfortable - Great value

Illusion Boutique hotel was just what we needed: clean, comfortable, perfect location and relatively inexpensive. Room was always clean. Contrary to other reviews, we could keep the power and air conditioning on 24/7. Hotel is in a perfect spot about 75 meters from the best beach and about 25 meters the other way from La Quinta, the main shopping/restaurant promenade. Loved the king-size bed and cable flat screen tv. The free continental breakfast was convenient. Good shower and toilet water pressure. We stayed on the top floor where the pool is. Pool is small and only 2 feet deep so no swimming but perfect for cooling off after laying out or chilling with a drink at their outdoor bar. (If you want to swim, you have the most beautiful beach in Mexico just down the street.) We stayed just before Hurricane Dean hit and the staff took good care to keep us informed. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable place to chill, then this is perfect.

Very close to action

Illusions Boutique is in an ideal location next to the main street with all the action and a few steps from the beach. Breakkfast very good for roughly 5$ a day. Rooms not very good looking however it is comfortable enough and you probably wont spend a lot of time in your room being that you are so close to all the activities. Great stay will be there again.

great location

Excellent location. Perfect if you are planning no rental car. Nice staff and good breakfast. Rooms are clean but most don't have outside windows, they face the inside patio or hallways. A good place to enjoy Playa.

perfect girlfriend getaway

This hotel was perfect for us. There was a courtyard that served breakfast every morning, a pool bar at the roof for evening hanging out and it was 1/2 block from the beach.

Friendly Staff with low price

My wife and I went on our honeymoon and had a wonderful stay. The highlight of the hotel was how friendly the staff was and how helpful they were. The hotel is right next to a beautiful beach and right in the heart of the 5th avenue shopping. The room was small but clean.

Everything you need is just a short walk away. For more tourism you pay $2.50 a person and take a shuttle pretty much anywhere.

Perfect Location, Great Staff

The Illusion Hotel is in a perfect location in the ciy of Playa Del Carmen. 1/2 block to one of the nicest sections of beach, 1/2 block the other way to the main street (5th avenue). 5th Avenue is full of restaurants and shops - enought to eat a different, great restarant every night. The hotel staff were great, and the hospitality team (breakfast/happy hour)were excellent as well. If we were going back to playa del carmen, we would go here again, no doubt.
