We liked the location because we weren’t thinking about going to the beach in Playa del Carmen everyday. This location is away from the noise of 5th Ave but close enough that you can walk everywhere. Walking to the beach takes about 15-20 min. It worked for us since the week we stayed we were always going to new places outside Playa del Carmen. I couldn’t rent the hotel paddleboard because it was $50. At the beach you can rent it for $20. Everything was great, the staff, the cleanliness, having a kitchenette, etc. the rooms need more hooks to hang towels. I didn’t want to change my towels everyday but had to because we couldn’t hang them. I also wanted to hang my PJs, and bathing suits but again there was just one hook in the entire apartment and a towel rack. The kitchenette had the essentials but it lacked Tupperware with lids and some clips to close food bags. We are happy we stayed here because it felt more like we were residents of Playa rather than tourists.
