I would definately stay here again next time we go to Playa del Carmen. It was quite comfortable, clean, and walking distance to shops and restaurants on 5th Ave. Staff were friendly, food was just fine, and was very good in the upstairs restaurants. Just don't go expecting 5 star accommodation and service - this is a small, character resort...

Beach was the best part of gcb, sure theres boats but step to your left a few feet and you'll have all the beach want. We arrived 5/18/2009 and stayed 5 days, not many people there. Food just ok drinks ok , they did'nt serve mojito's what a shame. Room's clean had no problem's.
