Reviewed 28 February 2007

Since most reviews were positive, I booked 2 rooms for me and my kids. The rooms were spacious and looked out onto the pool area. My problem was that it was noisy because of the traffic; I don't think it would be much different in any other small hotel. One got use to it quickly. Showers were hot, so I...

This was our 5th time to Playa del Carmen, and our first time at the Riviera del Sol. We only stayed one night, as we'd rented a condo for the rest of our time. The location is fantastic -- in the Italian section, away from the big crowds, and close to the beach. Like most places in Playa, however, it...

My partner and I stayed at the Riviera del Sol for 4 nights in January 2007. We liked the location, away from the busiest part of PDC, but with plenty of good restaurants nearby, and just a block from the beach. The staff was very helpful and pleasantly informal (at one point, when we said we liked the incense burning...

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. It was during the Christmas and fully booked, we would like to stay 2 more nights but no room is available. The room is clean, bright, breakfast is good. The location is great, just off the 5th Av, and 2 minutes walk to the beach. We had great time during the stay...

I have stayed in many hotels in Playa Del Carmen and last week stayed at the Riviera Del Sol. Juan Jose was very attentive to my emails requesting information on parking in the area and discounts for cash payments. The room was very clean, had excellent air conditioning and included breakfast in the price. There is a pool on the...

This was our third stay at Riviera Del Sol. Our first stay was last year during Hurricane Emily, and having experienced first hand how they look after their guests, we vowed to stay again. Since then, this hotel is our number one choice. The location is superb - it's a 5 minute walk to Mamitas (where you have free sunbed...

Our 5th trip to Playa, and we really enjoyed our short stay at this wonderful small hotel. The staff was excellent, Juan Jose the manager was the best, we felt very welcomed upon our arrival and during our 4 day stay. We always stop in Playa for a few days before heading south, and we will stay here again in...

I stayed at the Riviera del Sol with a friend of mine, while participating in a wedding at one of the large (and very expensive) all-inclusive resorts, Secrets Capri. The bride and groom stayed there, but that was way out of my budget! When I searched for reasonable accomodations in downtown Playa del Carmen, Riviera del Sol stood out given...

We recently stayed at the Riviera Del Sol Hotel between the dates of March 17 through 24, 2006. We didn't know what to expect and were accustomed to the big "All Inclusives" of the Mayan Riviera. This trip was our (5th)to this area, including a stay at the Royal Hideaway. I can honestly say my family and I couldn't have...
