Hemingway-esque Hacienda

A fantastic place to hang your hat when vacationing in Playa. It is on the north end of La Quinta, far enough removed from the hustle and bustle of the clubs to ensure a good night's sleep. Excellent pizza slices right across the street and a delicious continental breakfast each morning at La Vagabounda. Rooms have all the amenities - TV, AC, fridge, safe - and great little lounge areas for cocktails. Best of all, the Mariposa is only two blocks from Mamita's Beach. Great value, great staff and service. Highly recommended.

Head a bit further north on La Quinta (around 28th and 30th St) and you will find great Italian, a delicious fresh seafood joint, Babe's Noodle Bar for Thai dishes, and 1847 for traditional Mexican (very affordable).

Great location. Beautiful garden courtyard. Convenient to beach ... enjoyed the Mamitas Beach Club affiliation. Enjoyed being on the 5th Avenue pedestrian street near restaurants, clubs and shops. Yet property was still quiet. Great staff service.

staff can ruin your vacation

Everything could have been great if not asking for hot water would have made a big deal. Just up front the hotel is offering coffee and water for free. So if you expect hot coffee you might also expect hot water. Just to make that clear all the staff but one was very nice with us, but one person is enough to ruin your stay. Here are some of the answers we got from this specific person after asking for a cup(we brought our own) of hot water: "No we don't have hot water, just cold". After asking again we were told "to wait 4 hours because the water maker is broke". After this we were told to "just walk to the restaurant across to ask for hot water". Which we did and of course were declined as we found out later this was simply a lie. We confronted the front desk with the facts and yes they apologized and offered us some compensation we in the end did not except as it was not our goal to get something for free but make our point.

kind of expensive but lovely

breakfast is included which was nice. otherwise, they don't offer you a lot in terms of amenities. the local is right on 5th ave, so it's not always quiet. some of the rooms are definitely better than others. I started in a room with only one small window and ended up paying extra to move.

Great time at the Mariposa

we spent 2 night of our Honeymoon at the Mariposa, they were so kind they have prepared special flower arrangements for us. the atmosphere is really nice both in the rooms and outside in their beautiful courtyard. the reception staff is multilingual and extremely polite and the location is very convenient right on the quinta avenida.

Gizele was the best part

Gizele, at reception was the best part of our stay. She spoke great English, was super friendly, and said everything with a warm smile. Our room was located on the ground floor where you could hear the reception phone ring. The hotel interior is gorgeous, but the room fell short. I also want to say that Playa Del Carmen was disappointing in general and next time I'll skip it all together.
