Awesome little place tucked away
Great location right off the main area. The staff was friendly. Room was pretty small but we still enjoyed it and will be back

Good value for price
For the price it is a good value. Very utilitarian. Great location close to restaurants, etc. I really liked the firm mattress. The only downside is at night you will hear noise from nearby restaurants and bars. Basic needs met. Moises, one of the lobby clerks, was very helpful as well with information.

Nice budget hotel
Great location on 5th. Close to ADO bus. Pretty rooftop sitting area overlooking water. Clubs thump til 4 am, so bring earplugs. Uncomfortable beds, but that's how it goes in this part of the world. Nice service staff. Good budget hotel.

Great place for a budget stay comfy best location
Nice cosy quiet rooms with balcony right on 5th Ave very close to the beach and around all the action. Staff was very helpful and courteous. We checked in at 3am but had no issues. Room is comfortable and clean, hot water, tv, aircon, security box, clean comfy towels. Only thing pls add a blanket in winters :)

Love this place. The location, the room, the hot shower, everything was perfect! The only con was wifi did not work while I was there.

A great place to stay in the heart of downtown
I stayed here as part of my honeymoon. We chose this hotel because of good reviews and how close it was to the ADO bus station. This hotel had fantastic amenities for the price. It is a couple blocks from the water and located along the main pedestrian street with a lot of shops. The room had a refrigerator and is within decent walking distance from Walmart, so we were able to store food in our room. We enjoyed eating breakfast on our balcony in the mornings! We also really liked spending time in the hot tub on the roof (it has different colored lights!) and looking at the beautiful garden view below. The service from the front desk was incredible! They helped carry our bags up the stairs. Carlos was very friendly and helpful. He offered suggestions for things to do and even gave us some wine! I highly recommend this hotel to couples looking for an affordable place to stay in the heart of Playa del Carmen!!

Goog location.
Location was good and hotel was OK. Needed an outside seating area to make it much better. Little needed to achieve this and would greatly enhance experience.

Perfectly located and very comfortable.
Perfectly located and very comfortable. Staff is friendly. The bars nearby keep playing music until late but not the fault of the hotel. Fortunately that doesn't bother me much but perhaps somebody else might like to know beforehand.

Small oasis in center of Quinta Avenida
El Secreto was very reasonably priced, convenient, clean, centrally located, and surprisingly quiet.
George, mx1 night family trip
Very good 8,0
Great little spot.
The place is a little difficult to find but if you ask the guys on 5th they will tell you. The little courtyard is charming and it is surprisingly quiet since it close to clubs and restaurants. Towels and sheets were soft and clean. Soap and shampoo, good quality. Maybe could do with a microwave. WiFi was a bit erratic.
