Myself and my mum stayed at this hotel in January and I can honestly say it was an extremly pleasant experiance. You are so close to all the action of Playa but without the noise (and we were in Playa whilst BPM music festival was going on) I am a very light sleeper and can usually hear a pin drop...

This was our third stay at Hotel Alhambra. The staff is professional and friendly and most of them have been working at the hotel for years. The rooms are quiet, clean and cool. Great location- one block off of 5th Avenue and directly on the beach. Full hot breakfast is included with room. What can be better than gazing at...

Nice hotel with no frills, ideal to be used as a base for your stay. Excellent location, from there you can easily be on the beach, have a good meal, explore Playa del Carmen, or take a day trip. The staff is friendly and helpful whenever you ask for help or advice.

We stayed one night on our way to Tulum. Never been to Playa del Carmen before, so had no idea what the deal was. The hotel is very nice, clean, 3 story, with the third level being a great roof top deck/balcony. The rooms are simple and clean, and the room we stayed in had a nice size balcony with...

My wife and I came back to the Alhambra this year because of the great location, wonderful staff, and excellent workmanship on the hotel. We appreciate its simplicity and quietness. Definitely not for the party crowd.

The best part about Hotel Alhambra is its location. In the mornings, you have (included!) breakfast right on the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean. The main pedestrian road through Playa is less than two blocks away - close enough that it's easy to get to, far enough that it doesn't get too noisy. The rooms are clean...

I go to the Yucatan once or twice a year and have stayed at a number of hotels. I wasn't impressed by Hotel Alhambra at all - very basic lodging with semi dis-interested staff. The rooms are plain, the beds are hard and sheets and towels scratchy. I really didn't feel taken care of or pampered in anyway, which is...

We love Hotel Alhambra! Everyone is so nice there, and you cannot beat the location- right on the beach and just a block from Av 5. We had delicious fresh fruit for breakfast (we're vegan) which was really lovely. The rooms are simple, clean, and housekeeping always made the towels into cute little animals/creatures which we enjoyed! Because it is...

What a terrific find! My husband and I stayed here one night on our way to Talum. It was within walking distance from shopping row central (5th avenue), and we were pleasantly surprised to see how little we were "barked" at to shop in particular locals shops as we were walking around. The room was somewhat small, but extremely clean,...
