PL is a small quiet hotel right on the beach. Plenty of lounge chairs on the beautiful beach with excellent swimming. Our beachfront room was only a few steps from the beach, no room is more than maybe 100 yards from the beach. It was not luxurious but spacious and fine with a small refrigerator and good shower. They also have a nice pool. The food (breakfast and dinner included) was good but not great. It was prepared fresh, no chafing dishes reheating food like at big resorts. The dining room is an open air pavilion. Lunch was available at tables overlooking the beach. Our room was near the small bar by the beach which was empty by 10:00 so no problem with noise at night. Service throughout the hotel is excellent and personal. Its a 10 minute drive to the town, a place that is swarming with shops and tourists. We rented a car in Cancun and drove to the hotel, an easy 45 minute drive. There was not much to do at the hotel other than it being an excellent place to relax and walk along the miles of beach There are places down the beach which offer the usual beach diversions.We used the car to drive into Playa del Carmen and Puerto Morelos, and for excursions to Chichen Itza (a 3 hour drive), and the ferries to Isla Mujeres and Cozumel, so on alternate days we relaxed at the hotel or did some excursion. There were several families there with small children who played very nicely without disturbing the adult guests. All in all the hotel is an excellent choice.
