Our 5th trip to Playa, and we really enjoyed our short stay at this wonderful small hotel. The staff was excellent, Juan Jose the manager was the best, we felt very welcomed upon our arrival and during our 4 day stay. We always stop in Playa for a few days before heading south, and we will stay here again in...

I stayed at the Riviera del Sol with a friend of mine, while participating in a wedding at one of the large (and very expensive) all-inclusive resorts, Secrets Capri. The bride and groom stayed there, but that was way out of my budget! When I searched for reasonable accomodations in downtown Playa del Carmen, Riviera del Sol stood out given...

We recently stayed at the Riviera Del Sol Hotel between the dates of March 17 through 24, 2006. We didn't know what to expect and were accustomed to the big "All Inclusives" of the Mayan Riviera. This trip was our (5th)to this area, including a stay at the Royal Hideaway. I can honestly say my family and I couldn't have...

My husband, our 9-yr old daughter and I stayed at the Riviera del Sol in Playa del Carmen from 28 Feb to 09 March 2006, staying in Room 206.

We enjoyed our stay at Riviera del Sol. - Staff helpful and curteous - 2 blocks from beach - Room cleanliness okay. Not like America, but liveable - Breakfast included cereals, toast, fruit, coffee, juice - nice location by 5th avenue (1 block away). Not too far from 'bar scene' yet not too close to be bothered - hard beds!...

We booked here solely on the reviews from this site. We could not have been more disappointed. I must question the below reviews. Surrounding the hotel is currently 2 huge construction builds, so if you like waking up at 7 am to a jack hammer this place is for you. The sound travels throughout the hotel so screaming children is...
