The hotel was really nice and the bed was comfortable. It was a great location being right on the beach but also easy to walk anywhere in Playa and easy to access the Cozumel ferry and colectivos. It was nice to have a mini fridge in the room and free Wi-Fi. The breakfast was included and it was amazing to...

Excellent hotel for family or couples. Quiet yet close to the action. RIGHT ON THE BEACH! Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable rooms. Small. Close to nightlife and Cozumel ferry. Close to town center and flying Mayans performance. Cafe closes early, so it stays quiet. Be sure to get the coconut shrimp.

We stayed at Playa Maya December 18-21 in the Deluxe Balcony room. It was nothing fancy but we loved it. The staff and waiters are very helpful, all with great attitudes. Our room had a comfortable king-size bed and it was very clean. You could hear the waves and the view was wonderful! Also, the free continental breakfast choices are...

This hotel is far enough from 5th Avenue to be a quiet spot right on the beach, but close enough to give guests close access to the 5th Avenue night life and shopping. I encourage people to get off 5th Avenue for restaurants. Take any side street, wander a few blocks and you will find reasonably priced meals in a...

Hotel Playa Maya situated on a central section of beach in the heart of Playa del Carmen. This clean friendly place is very much a beach hotel, the only entrance is from the beach between 6th and 8th streets, directly off the famous 5th Avenue. There are many souvenir shops, bars, restaurants and dive shops in easy walking distance. There...

We had our choice of excursions from the cruise ship, and it was tough choosing. We haven't done any of the other activities and they all looked fun. We just wanted to enjoy some time on the beach with some fun around to mix it up. This was the perfect spot for that: drinks, sand, water, water toys galore, food,...

If you’ve seen my other reviews of Playa Maya, you’ll see that we LOVE this place! Not sure what more I can say to convince you that the service here is the best, except to say that the service is the best!!! Probably our 6th or so time staying here, and each time it gets better and better. Let me...

Rafael the Manager is a beautiful guy who pleases all customers. I was sitting by the Playa and had great food and refreshments. Papa fritas es delicious. Chicken sandwich is very good. You can rent a lounge chair by the beach and get a full service mesero for your needs. I like going here because as a former hotel guest...
