This was a very friendly hotel with beautiful landscaping and clean accommodations. We were always greeted warmly and given great service. The restaurant next door that served breakfast also did a wonderful job.

Money saver

From Cancun, this destination would not require a rental car if one just wanted to relax and enjoy a few excursions.

Great place to stay.

Would recommend Mon, Aug 17, 2009
This is a great hotel to stay at while in Playa. The rooms are very clean, the staff is very professional and helpful as well. The pool area one of the best we have found. The only down side to the hotel is that it can be noisy at night due to the clubs around it.

Exceptional Boutique Hotel

Would recommend Mon, Jun 1, 2009
We wanted a non-resort hotel in Playa Del Carmen - and Magic Blue is a fantastic solution. Located in the heart of the district, you can walk to almost anything in a few minutes. No glamerous drive up, but once inside the lobby and the main grounds you feel like you're on a tropical island. Upstairs room with a thatched ceiling, wonderful bed and fixtures, staff were always helpful, and the pool was lovely. Wife had the free 5 minute massage and I purchased the 30 minute sport massage - excellent masseuse, reasonable price. There is no restaurant on site, but they're partners with the Brazillian restaurant next door for breakfast and food at the pool. Highly recommend for travelers who don't want a Disneyland type resort and want a very tranquil environment, but close to all.

Dining

Try to pick a restaurant OFF the main boulevard since most of the ones ON the boulevard are very touristy and average at best.

Would recommend Tue, May 26, 2009
Great location, one block from 5th ave. Local noise didn't bother much, great pool and bar. I'd come back there again.

Dining

Good combination quality/price for dinner in El-Bistro (go out of the reception and take left. It's on 10th ave.

The very LOUD and OBNOXIOUS night club Coco Bongos was right across the street, You are not allowed any visitors! Felt more like a prison than a vacation. Would NEVER go back again. There are so many other quiet spots with less obtrusive employees!!

Great Getaway!

Would recommend Wed, Apr 22, 2009
This small, quiet place is an oasis. Just walk out the door and you're in the middle of the action. Don't ask the desk for restaurant suggestions, as they will point you to the tourist traps. Be adventurous and discover your own cool places.

Money saver

Eat at the small, family-run restaurants. Great food!

Fabulous Time

Would recommend Tue, Apr 14, 2009
My boyfriend and I loved Magic Blue. It was a great little oasis in the middle of Playa del Carmen. We were a little concerned when we were given a top floor room after reading other reviews about it being loud but we didn't have a problem with it at all. However, if you are a light sleeper you might want to go ahead and ask for a lower level room (the thatched roof while cool is not very sound resistant). Also one tip is always start out the night with a Margarita from the Hotel Bar as they are delicious, strong and cheap! Plus you will get great friendly service ([...] was fantastic!). The beach club is super convenient and the breakfast at the next door restaurant was delicious (don't miss the french toast). This was a great hotel at a great value. We would def come back!
