Sleep Quality



Great location - when you stay just a couple of days....

Jan 2022 | Thorsten27
Was long thinking about whether that is 3, 4 or 5* review - but afterthinking and when considering for whom this place is - i think it is well worth the stay. First of all, we stayed there just for a couple of nights to see Playa del Carmen and its closeby attractions. If i'd be searching for a place to spend a 1+ week beach holiday - go somewhere else. Here's why: The Pro's - LOCATION: the hotel is in a guarded community in walking distance to the nightlife of PdC, so when you go out you'll have everything closeby and a nice stroll. but you won't hear the hammering beats of bars & clubs at night. The ferry pier is also just around the corner. - The setting is lush green and the gardens are beautifully maintained with old vegation all around - Rooms can be a hit & miss, but we ended up in a very nice room (after getting upgrade 2 times due to complaints about the rooms we were assigned to) - beach access and friendlines of personnel - Food is good when taking into account thats its an all inclusive resort. Breakfast was sumptious. The CONs - the first room we got was literally the worst possible, next to staff accomodation worn out furniture, dark, not very nice. Only after compaining we got upgraded - the average guest is mid-age american tourist staying there for a booze vacation starting to drink just after breakfast on the swim up bars. - Beach chairs are so limited that not everyone will get a spot not even mentioning an umbrella. There is an extra section for so called "platinum guests" that we were chased off from the day we didnt get a sunbed in the "normal guest" area. not so guest friendly. - on fridays and saturdays there will be some american couple getting married on the beacht, half the bars will then be closed to other guests. - all bars close at 11 pm For our purpose, the hotel did the job, if it does for you too, one must decide for yourself.

Amazing hospitality

Really enjoyed our whole experience. What stood out was the customer service from all the staff especially Chris C. He helped us get a reservation last minute for an Italian dinner so my wife and I could enjoy a relaxing date. Thank you Chris C.!
