We have stayed at Playa Maya a couple of times. We have always enjoyed it, but this year we were disappointed. A new hotel has opened up next door. Apparently they are catering to the party crowd. Their boom, boom, boom music (noise ) started at 7:15 each morning and continued on into the night at varying levels of intensity....

This was our 6th trip to Play del Carmen, but first stay at Playa Maya. As we told the owner's wife, who we spoke to twice during our visit, the best thing about the place is the staff. They were all friendly, attentive, and genuinely went out of their way to make you comfortable. Our Superior Balcony room on the...

This was our 8th time at Playa Maya and still love it there. We were a little concerned after having learned the new hotel next door had opened and after reading reviews about the loud music they play. As it turned out it really wasn't a concern. The new hotel does play music during the day but it wasn't overly...

I feel really robbed this year, we generally stay at least 3 perfect weeks! Short trip of 2 weeks. Nice to see our favourite folks at Playa Maya who feel like family when we return there. Check in to check out, all was perfect! We never have to worry about struggling with our luggage, staff are always helpful. It is...

From the first time I contacted the hotel about a reservation, all the way through the checkout process, everything was handled quickly and professionally. When booking the room, we requested a room on the third floor, and were informed that rooms can only be guaranteed if booking for 14 days or longer, and I can see how that makes sense....

Playa Maya has done it again. Just returned from my 4th stay at the hotel in the last 2.5 years and it was equally as consistent and perfect as the prior 3 stays I've had with them. This charming boutique hotel right on the beach is not only affordable, but comparable to a perfectly blended tropical cocktail....the ingredients of course...

Been back from Playa Del Carmen for about a day now and still can't get the past week off my mind. Stayed at playa maya hotel for 6 nights in the beginning of February. This happened to be my 5th stay there in the past 2.5 years. Each time I've stayed there the experience has been increasingly better than the...

This is a small, but very well done hotel. It is located in the heart of PDC on the beach, and one block off of 5th Avenida. We had a room with a private, outdoor jacuzzi. While there was no ocean view, its location protected us from the thumping music coming from the roof of the place next door. The...

This hotel has no access form the street. You have to drag your luggage across the sand to get the hotel office . Rooms appeared to be clean but I slept with my clothes on and used my airplane blanket. Do I need to say anything more????

PlayaMaya, Public Relations Manager at Playa Maya, responded to this review

Well this is a very unusual review, and one not easy to respond to, though we appreciate the chance to do so and to try to provide a much fairer, more balanced picture of things for others who may read this in the future. As explained below, we wonder about the validity of the review in the first place, because...

Everything about this property and team is award winning. It is not a luxury property but it is spotless, well furnished, convenient, and a real value. We have been to Playa Del Carmen many times, but first time at Playa Maya, the check in was flawless ( better if you let them know you are coming or walk the sand)...
