Playing with Magic

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.

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

Mexican Getaway

Overall the hotel was pretty good. It was quiet and relaxing at any given time of the day. Pool was a nice getaway from the beach. Great location close to everything including the beach. For a non-inclusive it was worth the stay and the price.

Nice for a short trip, good value!

The location of this hotel is great for those who want to stay in playa and explore the town. It is centrally located, therefore you can practically walk anywhere. We enjoyed the breakfast that was included with the stay. This was perfect because for lunch and dinner we were able to eat at local restaurants which offered awesome, authentic Mexican food! We rented a car which was also perfect because we easily got around and did excursions on our own. This proved to be economical and again gave us the opportunity to explore other parts of the Riviera Maya. Overall this hotel offers a perfect stay when you go with a plan in mind and stick to an itinerary.

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.
