We didn't stay here - We just stumbled upon the rooftop pool lounge and struck gold. It was a breath of fresh air after looking at all the crowded restaurants, we walked up the stairs (mostly just because they look nice) and ended up spending the rest of the afternoon there. At night, they play house music and project old...

We stayed at deseo a few years ago before our wedding further north in the riviera maya. We loved everything about the hotel from the minimalist but swanky rooms to the pool and bar. We tried to return during our latest trip and couldnt reach them. While in town we swang by for a drink by the pool and saw...

Beautiful boutique hotel in the most happening place in Playa del Carmen, which still retained a relaxing homely vibe. The staff were very friendly and sincere - no attitude that you might expect in high end hotels. The rooms are minimalistic in style. Though they were at the center of the party district, the rooms are well equipped with sound...

The hotel is nice, rooms are very well kept. You can enjoy the house music in the pool while sipping drinks prepared by the awesome Carlos. If you've never been to the area Carlos will guide you to some pretty awesome party spots. I would recommend this place if you're there to enjoy the party scene on 5ta and you...

Situated in the center of Playa Del Carmen, it was nice to be able to escape the night life by relaxing in your sound proof air conditioned room, yet step outside to join the activities in the bar + lounge, or relax by the pool in the day. Breakfast was basic yet filling and the staff were accommodating. The bar...

Deseo is in the middle of everything in Playa del Carmen. It is also the reason why you won't really get much sleep. It's truly a hip and chic boutique hotel but really for the youth. We stayed with a small group of party-goers and had a blast. Again, if you are fond of sleep, I'd think twice.

We hadn't booked anything prior to arriving on a super busy weekend in Playa. We tried a few places that were full and the found Deseo, luckily there was a vacancy for the weekend. So close to everything, just what we needed. The A/C is awesome. Love the rooms, and it was great to relax on the pool deck. Unfortunately...

Small Boutique hotel in the heart of playa right on 5ta avenida with nightlife and restaurants all around. If you want a place to stay and never use a taxi and have the best restaurants and nightlife 1 or 2 blocks away this is the place. The bartenders make great drinks! This place is chic and cool, not really focus...

It makes me sad to write this review as my sister stayed here 5 years ago and recommended it to my wife and I on our honeymoon. Playa Del Carmen has grown a lot in 5 years, and to Deseo's detriment it has had a negative effect as Deseo is in such a busy spot now. We stayed in a...
