I read all the great reviews on trip advisor about Illusion. I was skeptical that everything would be as good as everyone said. It was really a great place to stay. My room was one of the fourth floor rooms that open to the pool area. It was large and comfortable with a great bed. I think the best rooms...

We split our week in Mexico between Akumal and Playa to experiment with an all inclusive vs a smaller room only option, and found this hotel using trip Advisor. It was excellent on all levels with rare cause for concern. Located 1 block from 5th, we were close to shopping. 1 block the other way put you on the beach!...

While the rooms were clean and the front desk was helpful, there was an extremely aggressive "concierge" who kept trying to get us to go attend a real estate event in exchange for a free trip snorkeling. Luckily, we had read in our guidebook about this nightmare and said No, but No was not enough for this woman. Every day...

What an enjoyable stay! The staff was friendly, the room beautiful. What a treat to enjoy the pool deck on the 4th floor, an ocean view, close access to the beach & shopping. Nice massage huts on the top floor. Even an elevator!

We enjoyed our week-long stay at the Illusion Boutique. We were treated very nicely, and the staff was extremely accommodating. The location was perfect. Entry to Playa del Carmen's "famous" 5th Avenue was right at the corner, and we were able to walk to several wonderful restaurants. They have a private beach associated with the hotel. You had to walk...

This was my second time staying here and both times I found the hotel to be very clean and a very good value compared to other hotels in the area. The hotel is in a great location and there is just a very good overall vibe here. My wife and I spent a week here and we didn't want to...

Last November, I had the pleasure of staying at the Illusion hotel in PDC. The hotel was perfectly located one half block from the beach and one half block from Fifth Avenue, the main pedestrian thoroughfare that bisects PDC. I found the hotel to be charming, clean and professionally serviced by a friendly and welcoming staff. Since returning, I have...

In early October 2008 we booked a "Deluxe Room with Balcony" at the Illusion Hotel for our Xmas vacation. Please note, that was almost 3 months in advance of the actual vacation.
