Stayed here for the first 2 days of our trip based on other reviews. Average hotel, poor wifi reception, staff left a lot to be desired at breakfast.. they seemed to think one pot of coffee would serve everyone and getting a cup of tea was a hassle. The location was good but for the money, so are plenty of...

This Hotel has exceeded all our expectations for the price, service and location: clean, friendly, good and free wifi on many devices, pleasant ambiance, and truly superb care of guests. We have worked with Carlos who always has promptly responded to our emails: We have left a new smartphone last December in the room. The phone was found after our...

We stayed again at this hotel for 8 weeks in a totally renovated room. There are certain things that make this hotel stay above the rest in budget hotel category. The price is just one of them and is very competitive in comparison with others. However, there are other very important things such as superb location that is within minutes...

I stayed at the Real Mayab for a week and found it to be a VERY comfortable place to stay in. No views but the fact that it's so close to everything is a major plus! Only a 3 min walk from the hub of Playa del Carmen and if you're looking for more of a 'local' feel, walk to...

Stayed here for one night before heading to the airport and boy were we glad it was only that one night! The rooms are dark and humid with a terrible moldy smell. We were out all day and came home late to sleep. We went to Starbucks for breakfast so never tried their breakfast. Would probably not stay here again....

A very nice experience! The hotel is cheap but clean, with nice and big rooms, friendly personnel, well located close to the beginning of the 5th avenue. The breakfast was really good and free parking slots are available in front of the hotel. The only problem was the weak wifi in our room. Surely recommendable!

We just spent a couple of days in that small nice hotel and we are very satisfied. If you're looking for a luxury resort where you can spend your entire day, than it's not your choice. But if you're on a budget, and you would like to stay at a safe, clean, nice hotel during the night, you'll like it....

We had spent 7 weeks at this hotel. It would be difficult to find another place with such high value for money deal. To start with hotel has only eleven rooms and within few days you know all the staff and most of guests that stay for a week or more. One cannot praise enough the staff, starting with Manager...

We stayed one night at the hotel. It was clean & comfortable and just on the edge of downtown Playa Del Carmen. A great hotel for a few nights stay with in walking distance to 5th ave, and the night life of 5th ave. The hotel also provided a breakfast in the price of the room.
