My friends and I had an awesome stay at the illusion. First, it's location is prime. It is extremely close in walking distance to the beach and all other locations of Playa del Carmen (ex. food, night life, shopping). Second, the staff is exceptionally friendly. By the second day, all staff knew us by name. They constantly asked if our...

I found this hotel last minute before my trip to Playa and I couldn't have been more pleased. It is small and comforting, the rooms are gorgeous and the staff is very friendly. Definetely a place to go for personal service. No crazy overcrowded hotel feel ever. The hotel is located in the middle of playa's happening avenue and the...

We got this hotel through a brilliant off'-season (and post swine flu) deal so value for money was excellent at $40 for deluxe room. That said, we did get a big clean room with king size bed, AC, fridge and microwave with ocean views on the pool deck level. The room was great and the pool area is a great...

Localized at the heart of Playa del Carmen, this hotel has a very good quality. Sometimes I felt as if I was in a 5 star hotel, specially when I was in the room. The swiming pool has an outstanding view. More than that, Illusion gives you free access to a private beach club...., very nice. Within the hotel, Internet...
