Beach & Margaritas
This is a great boutique hotel right on the water in Playa Del Carmen it is just one block up to 5th ave. Very modern design; the staff are great very friendly and helpful. Location is fantastic and the roof top pool is great. Only drawbacks are the modern design means no drawers to put clothes in (you can hang shirts in closet), there is no ice machine you have to ask the kitchen for some and although the food at the restaurant is good (great guac) the menu is limited. Would be nice to have sun chairs around pool instead of so many high top tables. But my wife and I had a great time staying here and would recommend it to others.

Lovely Sunset room & breakfast with a beach view
We got an upgrade to the sunrise suite as the ocean view room we booked was not available for our dates post booking. We stayed 2 nights in 212, its the corner room right above the breakfast area. Surprisingly not noisy even when door to the balcony is open. Only issue is next door balcony is separated by mid level glass wall & someone standing at their end can see inside the room. Room is chic, toiletries & kits are provided. There is a mini fridge, safe, TV. Wifi was gud. Breakfast was really gud with lovely view only minus is it starts late by 8am. It’d be nice if they could give boxed breakfast for ppl going on early tours. You can store luggage. We had a slight problem with the shower. Its glass encased and water leaked out in to the room side after a shower. Toilet worked fine. Another minus is the $20 per night resort fee you need to pay over & above the price on the website. Staff was polite & service was gud. It’s a bit expensive but gud stay.

Who likes Black Mould ??
This resort has great rooms and a great staff, however everything else falls grossly short. There was black mould in our room, which apparently is one of the very best in terms of ocean view. When we asked for someone to address it, we were brushed aside, so now you can enjoy the photo. We were told there was a fitness facility that we could use and after being told it would be $89USD we found out that there is a punch card and you can work out free at a place called "The Gym" - we were told the front desk had tried doing this to other visitors to make extra money. Also the beach is a public beach and between 3-4pm during the week it is jam packed with locals eating dinner, bathing, and drinking. Often this goes long into the night and early morning . . . drunks yelling and swearing. THERE ARE ONLY 8 BEACH CHAIRS IN FRONT OF THIS RESORT SO GET THERE EARLY AND MAKE SURE YOU GET AN UMBRELLA. We requested a refund due to the black mould issue, but were given the run around. I hope all of you out there will re-consider ever staying at this hotel.

Great location & roof top bar
Stayed here 2 nights in between two all inclusive resorts to experience more local flavor. The location is conveniently on the beach and next to the main fifth avenue strip where all the stores & restaurants are located. The rooftop bar and view is great. The value for price is very good. The staff are nice, the room and the view from the room was good too even with partial view, the beach was very visible and worth it. (Usually partial views are quite disappointing). My only issue is that the toilet flush wasn’t great and the sink water didn’t have hot water but the shower did.

Sexy little hotel in a great location
The hotel is a very nice boutique location. The property is very modern and clean with a fantastic rooftop pool and bar. The staff is helpful for the most part, some more than others. Dani is an amazing waitress who works at the restaurant on the beach as well as the rooftop pool and bar. She gave us 5 star service every time she was working. The location is excellent with tons of options for dining, partying and shopping. Overall an excellent hotel

Great boutique hotel. The location is perfect and the staff is excellent.

Good 6.0
Overall stay
Overall the stay was ok I say this due to lack of restaurant service (no service breakfast lacked in quality). Lack a bathroom privacy, although they say it is an adult resort u still want privacy. Adults does not always include couples (as in my case I took my mom). The staff was wonderful the cocktail were great. A note to those going to tv/cable service they only offer netflix & youtube. & also i expected a hot spa (jacuzzi) but none (only if u get a suite with a private one). Although i will say when you need someone to help in your room they are there promptly. It is a small resort only 39 rooms i believe which i did like.
