  • 6.0.Good

    Th rooms in this hotel are very clean but the location is bad. They said it’s on 5th Ave which is one of the main roads with all the shops. Unfortunately it’s on the other end of 5th which is not safe. Too many stairs with no elevator. You have to carry your luggage up winding stairs. The back of the 1st floor needs cleaning and work.

  • 2.0.Poor

    I only lost part of my money, not all of them. I lost 10 USD and 500 Mexican Peso, and I totally have 15 USD and 2000 Mexican peso, which a suspect only took one highest denomination banknotes. My friend lost 100 USD and 500 Mexican Peso, which also was taken the highest denomination banknotes.Since this is the trip with 3 people, I collected the mutual fund and we counted it every day, and I am very clear that how much money I did have and how much money I was stolen. I found my money was lost on the second night of the hotel, which is March 14th, and I try to solve this issue in the early morning on March 15th. In that night, based on the feature of losing money, I believe the cleaner of that hotel had a big problem. On March 15th, I checked the video and it showed that only the cleaner entered the room. I did bring my wallet every day and only that day I did not since I went to a water theme park. I believe this is the cleaner's problem, but the reception staff told me that since I did not put my wallet in the safety box located on another floor, they did not have any compensation for us. This attitude is very worst, and I did need to leave Playa de Carmen before noon,  I have to leave and give up arguing and plan to discuss with you, Expedia for such a situation.

    Very peaceful quiet location down on 5 th Ave. away from noisy venders. We were still easily able to walk down to hustle and bustle of 5 th Ave yet still have a quiet place to return, only thing about our room in particular is we didn’t have a lanai or small Outside seating area directly connected to our room. Would have been nice to have, but rooftop deck was nice. Staff was great!!! Beach access right across the street too.

    Quiet and Good Value

    This was a small hotel with 9 rooms. The location was at the quiet end of 5th ave. We didn’t mind the walk into the busy part of Playa de Carmen. Only 10 min walk in. TIP: the beach is much better and less busy at this location. If you like to hang out at the beach, I would stay in this area opposed to staying in the busy center of PDC. The staff here are very good and Jimmy speak English very well. The rooms are cleaned daily and Maria does an amazing job. The WIFI is good, water is hot with good pressure. It was nice to have a little kitchen area (no stove, but nice size fridge and microwave). A good grocery store is a short walk away (17 mins, across highway near Home Depot), but a OXOX is just around the corner. Overall we had a nice time here and we felt that this is a great hotel for a budget minded traveller.

    The rooms are large, modern, and clean. The rooftop dipping pool is perfect for hanging out and chatting. The staff are great, and the property is safe. There's a beach close by, just a short walk through the greenbelt. There's another one about 10 blocks North, and another about 10 blocks South. Town is super close and the easy walk to everything is on a safe walking path that passes right in front of the hotel. We plan on returning for sure!

    Loved Calla Quinte Avenue evening strolls

    Ocean Zen did not disappoint. Oom was huge. Near to local beach, great swimming, nice walks into town every evening and lunch at nearby Sabor. Neighborhood noise at night settled quietly and early. Open doors to mangrove overlooking ocean sweet. Staff was respectful and Jimmy always helpful. Hope to get back.

  • 8.0.Very good

    My husband and I stayed at Ocean Zen for a week and it's a beautiful and quaint boutique hotel. The staff are warm, friendly, helpful and do a great job at taking care of the place and guests. The view is spectacular from the 3rd floor honeymoon suites and the rooftop pool is gorgeous and great for photos :) There were only a couple of things that made our stay less than stellar, but they are definitely small in comparison to all of the pros of staying at Ocean Zen Suites. Our room was lovely and simple and the kitchenette had everything we needed to make fruit smoothies and other snacks/meals (there was a blender, coffee pot with ground coffee and sugar, microwave, and a toaster), but there weren't any pots, pans, or oven (which was totally fine). The only thing we didn't love about our room was that the bathroom is not totally closed, so that could be a little awkward Lol. The TV had apps like Netflix so we could sign in and the AC works wonderfully (a must with the heat and humidity of Playa Del Carmen). The location is definitely more of a local neighborhood, but we felt safe and walked to town everyday to try many of the great vegan restaurants :D La Senda, Chlorofila, and The Pitted Date were our favs! Bring earplugs though because there were nights when cats were yowling outside, dogs were barking all night long, or early morning marachi music was played by people outside. Other than those few notes, a local beach was a 7 minute walk and overall, we loved our stay!

    The rooftop pool was lovely and the balcony was very stylish, however the mesh curtain next to the pillow on the bed nearest the window let a lot of light in in the morning and woke us up
