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.

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.

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.

Nice hotel, great location

Excellent location, less than one block from 5th towards the ocean. You can walk anywhere in less than 10 mins. The beach is less than 1 min! Nice size room, would be nice to have a few more drawers to put clothes for longer stays. We stayed 7 days & made it work. Small but useable balcony. Nice sized shower with plenty of HOT water! Continental breakfast is average or you can have eggs / omlette cooked to order pretty inexpensive. We did this a few days then found other breakfast options to change things up. Nice rooftop views, pool, & bar, we didn't really use this much though. No noise issues from the activities on 5th ave. Currently construction accross the street, but should be short lived & they didn't start too early. Overall very nice stay & would go back or recommend this hotel.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

All kinds of shopping, dining etc. all within 1-10 mins. from hotel. Ask around & don't be afraid to venture off of 5th ave. for some excellent native/mexican food.

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 and Quiet

The Illusion Boutique Hotel in Playa is in an excellent location for all of Playa's activities. It is a very short walk to the beach, and close to the ferry terminal (to Cozumel). Even though it is centrally located, the rooms are quiet and comfortable. The hotel is nicely decorated and has a roof top terrace with bar and pool. The roof top provides a wonderful view of the ocean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will stay at the Illuision Boutique when I return to Playa.

Ok room, great location!

Rooms are pretty basic, although having the fridge was very nice. Our bathroom had ants on the counter so that was pretty annoying. Beds are soooooo hard we were tossing all night. We had a small balcony that was pretty useless looking out to people eating at the restaurant. The pool was pretty, and also pretty small and cold. The staff here was very nice and accommodating. The location was the best part of the hotel. Just steps away from the main strip and ocean. I have to say the little restaurant when u walk out to the left next door was pretty delish! All in all I probably would look for a nicer quality hotel for next time but it did the trick this time.
