Very good 8,0
Very nice staff and location. The beach was right off the property. The pool was very small but adequate. The room was comfortable with good AC and ocean views. The bathroom was a bit run down. I would stay here again.

Nice place, could be nicer at the price point
The hotel itself is nice, and the restaurant is good. The room was moderately clean, but not as clean as could be and the plumbing was leaky. The bed was pretty bad. The staff is friendly and helpful, but just too few of them. The area is beautiful, but the town has a serious sewage problem to the point that I didn't want to leave the property - walking up the street to find someplace to eat was almost unbearable. And when we found someplace, we sat down and I just had to leave because of the sewage smell. Overall I'll give it 4/5 because it really was beautiful and we enjoyed our stay. But it could have been better.

Best location in the Playa Carmen area
Great location right on the beach. One of few hotels in this area that have straight beach access. Quiet and clean. Very nice restaurant and staff. Cool beach party place 50 metres away - not noisy

Beautiful beachfront resort
Beautiful hotel on the beach with secure, guarded parking. Walking distance to town. Yoga and surf lessons offered at hotel. Cons - a little over priced including the restaurant, breakfast not included, yoga class was ended short, rooms near street were noisy.
Shawna, us1 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10,0
A little piece of tropical heaven
I loved it. It is a perfect location for surfing as you can walk left or right out of Hotel onto the beach and choose your the peak that suits you. Yoga classes are held daily for the non surfers of the party. Day beds and hammocks are on the beach for relaxing and watching the sunset. The garden had some pretty impressive iguanas wandering about. We didn’t see much other wildlife around apart from a few birds, but the gardens were really pretty with bright splashed if colour. The staff were really friendly and helpful without being pushy in any way. If you go in or just after the rainy season use the north route as the rivers flood the roads on the coastal road making it impassable in places. I would definately return. The hotel is probably not for the budget traveller as the restaurant is certainly worth eating at but may be a bit expensive for those travelling on a budget
