I stayed at Illusion for a week by myself as my friends were staying in a different hotel. I loved everything about it!! Customer service was amazing!! I never felt nervous about being there alone and I love that it's an ecofriendly hotel. The view from the roof is awesome and even though it's just off 5th ave it's surprisingly...

We just spent 9 days at this hotel and it was wonderful. Very comfy and clean. The staff was really nice. We were on the 4th floor, in a corner room. It was dark, but it really didn't bother me. You can easily go out to the roof top patio and enjoy the sun. The bed was comfortable. You can't...

My sister and I just spent April 8-15 at the Illusion Hotel and had a wonderful stay. The pictures on their web site were exactly what everything looked like. We paid for and received the standard room with no up-grade and were as pleased as can be with the quality of the room. We were also able to look into...

I loved this Hotel. Specially the combination of price and location. Just half of a block from the beach, nice continental breakfast, clean rooms. We paid around $140 a night, not bad for the week before Spring Break.

Located in the heart of Playa, close to beach and restaurants. Basic amenities but when in Playa you are not there to hang in your room. Rooms are very clean and the people at the front desk are wonderful. Great way to spend a week! Would definitely return ,,,,

Me & my husband went for Spring break, the receptionist Violeta was great, we had free cont breakfast EVERY morning and they had great tours for all the hot spots (Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Tulum), did I mention CHEAPER than the ones offered on 5th Ave. GREAT location between 5th ave which is "THE" walking strip in Playa and within 50feet from...

We only stayed for 3 nights.They gave us a room with a very small window and no view so we felt very cave like. Furnishishings were just okay (we had a kiki bar in our room as an entertainment unit) and there very little drawer and counter space which may be an issue if you are there for a week....

We stayed here for two nights after our resort experience just North of Playa. Two great things about this hotel, the location and the little Scandinavian cafe where they make everything fresh daily. Best part of this hotel is the location. It' s in the heart of Playa nestled between the beach and 5th Ave, the main shopping area. This...

We stayed at this hotel as part of a group that was vacationing in Playa. We have been to Playa many times and found this to be one of the quietess hotels we've ever stayed at which is hard to come by in Playa, especially being close to 5th Ave (we had an inside room, without a balcony). The location...
