“Excellent hotel, service and people!!!”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

A very nice hotel, great and friendly people that make you feel at home. You can just walk to the center and discos. The food and drinks were excellent, kudos to the chef and bartender.

This place is a hidden gem. Two small hotels converted into one, which means it has a nice quiet courtyard with everything you need. At the same time your are less than 10 metres from 5th avenue. Nice reception area, free wifi, two small swimming pools, plenty of sun beds and a nice restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helped us took book transfer as well as a trip to Chichen Itza. Prizes were the same as the cheapest we could find on internet. Some complain about the breakfast, but the rooms are very cheap and if you pay $10 you get a lovely fruit plate or omelette cooked to your taste. We ate at the restaurant in the evening as well and the food was the nicest we had in Playa del Carmen. KOOL beach club as well as beach towels are included. We thought it was good value for money and would happily go back!

What a great week we had. Mgr. Rob made sure everything was top notch. Service and accommodations were better than expected. Chef Marco and the staff at the Mayan Bistro supplied the best food and service of our whole trip. We will return!

Been home one week now and finally taking a minute to write a little review. This was our first time in playa and we think we got it right! A great place with a great location within walking distance to everything. We always looked forward to returning to our rooms after being out all day to see what kind of whimsical towel art the girls had left for us. If you,re looking for top notch dining, look no further than their own `Mayan Bistro`. Chef Marco is second to none. Dora(always smiling), Aldo. Misquito,Nino and Danielle, looking forward to seeing all of you again next year, Good Times!

The wife and I were looking to getaway for a quick, budget friendly vacation in Playa and this place was exactly what we were looking for.
The positives;
Location was right in the heart of everything without knowing it. 1/2 block from 5th ave and shops and restaraunts but you would never know it. The hotel itself is a charming little oasis and the beach is a short 10 min. walk.
The staff couldnt be any friendlier and were very helpful with any questions we had.
The negatives;
Our room was a little "rustic" with only a wall separating the bathroom so if youre uncomfotable with that, you might want to get a different room. As I said the rooms dont have any frills if thats important look elsewhere.
The "free breakfast was nothing more than bland pastries, toast, coffee and juices but you could order off the menu. We did not eat at the hotels restaraunt "mayan bistro" because had all a list of places we wanted to try before hand but the smells coming from the bistro were wonderful and I heard nothing but good things about the chef. Definately next time.
If youre going on your honeymoon maybe you wanted to spend more $$$$ and go all out on a big, fancy resort but if you just want to experience Playa without breaking the bank, look no further. Cant wait to go back.

Someone once said “You can’t go back”. Well, I went back, to the best hotel in Playa Del Carmen. Paradise for me means everything the Aventura Mexicana is. Such a relaxing atmosphere located so close to shopping and the beach. The pools are shaped beautifully and so clean. The hotel has a very nice comfortable feel. So many plus points. When I stay there I get the VIP all inclusive plan. It is more than fair. Actually, if you don’t get the VIP you may spend more money than if you didn’t.
I have to mention the staff. I never saw a frown, I was never not greeted or smiled at, and you will find they become a part of your memories from staying there. From the manger Rob, right down the entire staff, I was treated like family.
I will be back again and again. Wish I was there now !!!

Room Tip: I like the deluxe king with the VIP plan.

This is our 4th year staying here. We love it. It almost feels like a family atmosphere. You cannot beat the location to the main street and the beach. My husband loves the gym right across the street. The grounds are very well maintained including the pools. The staff are very helpful.

Room Tip: Stay on the first floor to avoid the steps.
