    Awesome Stay!

    The staff is so friendly! The bartender at the hotel made the best Margaritas in Playa! The pool is so clean and nice. We have stayed at Playa before but by far the best hotel we have stood at so far :-) would recommend and go back again! Everything was perfect from the rooms to the service.

    Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

    If you are going to the Tulum Ruins you should use ADO transportation for like 16 dollars round trip. Do not buy the tickets from outside vendors this can run you up to 235 dollars. You can even get a tour guide over there for an extra couple of dollars. But its cheaper to go to the bus station and buy the fare and go on your own.

    Excellent Hotel

    Hotel was very quiet, clean, and an oasis. Every time we walked into the courtyard, we were amazed how quiet and peaceful it was. At least 1/2 the street noise if not 1/4. And the grounds are absolutely perfectly kept.

    Exceptional Boutique Hotel

    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.

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

    Convenient, little gem!

    This is a great, little retreat right in the heart of Playa Del Carmen - two blocks from the beach and dive shops, one block from the main drag, two blocks from Walmart and surrounded by lots of places to eat. It also included free beach lounge chairs at two beach clubs that also offered a free appetizer. They also have a pretty good, free Mexican style breakfast buffet that beats most free American breakfast buffets any day. The only negative for some might be that it's across the street from Coco Bongo and you can hear the music at night but it's pretty faint. We were there during the low season so I can imagine that the area might be louder during peak times but this probably comes with the territory of any downtown location. If you have a car, parking might be tough during peak times too. We had to park two blocks away which wasn't bad. In all, great deal!

    Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

    If you're a light sleeper, this may not be the place for you because of its proximity to night clubs and popular hang outs especially during the high season.

    Fabulous Time

    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!

    Great place to stay.

    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.

    Great Getaway!

    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.
