“Nice hotel, great attitude”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

I had to depart the hotel a day earlier than planned because had to be at work. Despite the fact that I have made a non-refundable booking, the staff were kind enough to refund me last night! I did not even have to ask for it. That was really very nice and would not normally happen elsewhere. What a great attitude!

Great hotel! Beautiful, clean, very friendly staff, THE cocktails are great, every day happy hour, and near 5th Avenue and the beach. You can get clean beach towels every day free of charge.
For a great vacation in Playa, stay at Aventura Mexicana!

There is a lot of good things to say about Aventura Mexicana. Good location in the center of Playa del Carmen, beautiful garden and to nice pools - separated for kids and adults. The rooms are big, clean and with good design. The staff was professional and service-minded. I really enjoyed my stay at the Aventura Mexicana. The only thing I didn`t like was the breakfast. The continetal breakfast that was included was just pale toasts and some bad cakes. It is possible to buy omeletts and other things, but a buffet would have been better.

We spent 5 nights at Aventura Mexicana in April 2012 and just loved it. We have travelled many times to Mexico and the Caribbean. This was our first experience at a boutique hotel and would definitely do it again. The hotel is very close to the beach, about a 5 minute walk. The hotel provides beach towels and passes to the Kool beach club. Because we were there over Easter, which is a 2 week school holiday in Mexico, there were many, many tourists so chairs at the beach club filled up quickly. But that is not the hotel's fault. We still enjoyed the beach. We were half a block from 5th Avenue, which was great. The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The courtyard was beautifully landscaped. The pool was small and there were not enough chairs poolside some times but there were other seating areas. Our room did not have a full wall separating the bathroom but after 20 years together, that did not bother us. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel. A great way to experience Playa Del Carmen.

Room Tip: No elevators and steep stairs so rooms on the 3rd floor could be difficult for some.

We had a great time here for a week in February. There is a very low key vibe throughout Playa - we spent some time at the beach, at the pool, tucked in various nooks throughout the hotel sunning ourselves. The staff was quite helpful with directions and recommendations. We made good use of the gym across the street, and the main drag is half a block away. You are removed enough (a few blocks) from the busiest parts of Fifth Ave, which makes the hotel a nice refuge. We went to both beaches they had seats at, we liked both for different reasons. Have fun!

On the front end of our trip we stayed in a small hotel on the southern end of 5th ave. The Aventura Mexicana is more toward the northern end of 5th ave and while not actually on the avenue it's a very short walk. We found the hotel to be very attractive, the employees very friendly, and the on site restaurant to be convenient and quite good. We were given passes to a beach club which gave us free access to beach chairs and umbrellas. We loved being able to cool off in the pool after a day on the beach. The only negative for us was the poor water pressure in the shower. We would go back.

This is a great little hotel in a good location. Short walk to the beach and shops. One of the main reasons I appreciated it is that it's still in a central location while on a less busy part of the Calle 5. The continental breakfast was great. We had some hot water problems, but they got it fixed fairly quickly.
Overall, great little hotel. The helpful management makes it what it is.
