                • Beautiful beach and beach facilities, location was wonderful, i especially loved the 2 for 1 happy drink specials as the sun was setting. The service was excellent, the showers were great and had lots of hot water, most of the food was really good.

                  The front desk staff was rude and entirely unhelpful.

                  The water pressure at the shower is too low.

                • Great location on a beautiful beach, we loved swimming in the ocean and the best hotel in Playa del Carmen. The staff were awesome, the rooms were spacious and the service was impeccable and the food was very good. Dinner was perfect.

                  Very poor accommodation.

                • Great location and the beautiful beach. Excellent food and atmosphere, computers and a free one in the lobby, decent inexpensive restaurants within walking distance. The staff are amazing and the hammocks on the balcony are probably the best amenity offered and we loved.

                  The hotel is not at all crowded, weak air conditioning.

                  Some staff at the reception had quite poor English and lacked some knowledge sometimes.

                • The location is very good, the beach is perfect and safe, the food and atmosphere is amazing and the artwork is done by one of the servers. The staff is the same every year, really friendly and warm, the rooms are relatively simple and kept very clean, the breakfast is tasty, lots of fresh fruit.

                  Services offered by the hotel very quite overpriced.

                • The location was fabulous, we loved the closeness to 5th avenue and walked into town almost every night for dinner, compared to the price of other resorts, was a great value. Staff were extremely accommodating, concierge was also very helpful and friendly, the room was great, very basic, very clean and relaxing. Bar and the band was excellent, all drinks except of breakfast should be paid additionally, the egg dishes were delicious. The facility was lovely.

                  This hotel was bad bad bad, the beach was nice and not too crowded, bed was fairly comfortable.

                • The location is ideal, the beach is great and the hotel offers a complimentary honeymoon package in room. The staff is excellent, the concierge, named Bali, is amazing and the beds are clean and very comfortable. Price includes 2 meals a day and the food is good, lunch menu has a reasonable variety.

                  Air conditioning was not strong enough.

                • The location is amazing and restaurants is a short cab ride away. Hotel territory is nice, green, romantic and helpful staff great casitas right on the beach. The bathrooms have beautiful painted tiles in the showers and yaxche Mayan cuisine on La Quinta is highly recommended as well.

                  Not worth the money, playa del Carmen is not a sleepy little Mexican town and between 5 and 6 drinks are two for one and the frozen margaritas are outstanding.

                • Perfect wedding place, thanks to great concierge and all of the staff, the food in Sandos was very disappointing.
