The location is great - just behind the shopping mall, right in the center, yet it's very quiet. No crazy bars around, so you get quite a good night sleep. Beds/pillows were ok, though pretty much all of the mattresses in Mexico tend to be on a harder side. The room was clean (we had 2 beds). Flat TV, great,...

First, I want to commend the staff of this small, budget b&b. They are always smiling and very friendly. We arrived at the hotel at 8:30 am from Cancun Airport and were miserable because of the heat and because we didn't have enough sleep from the plane. We were dreading the thought of staying out since check-in time was 3pm...

If you are used to the Hilton then this is definitely not the place for you. However, for a simple, budget hotel it works. I'd give it a 3 1/2 star rating if I could. The rooms are very clean and the air con works well. There is a safe and a good shower. The bathroom is quite small (except...

Stayed there with my boyfriend and I had a great time. They treated us as we are in honeymoon, so each day we received an origami surprise made with towels! sweet! The breakfast is simple and everything that you need. Make sure to open the fridge, there is butter, yogurt, cheese and so on. The location is awesome, really close...

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!
