After reading several reviews about this hotel that were good, I booked a week stay October 3 through October 10 2009. We arrived very late the evening of October 3. The town was very busy and it took us some time to get through the town and to convince the local police, who had the street to the hotel blocked...

We just returned home from 7 nights in Playa, and we were very pleased with this hotel. Upon arriving we were upgraded to a balcony room overlooking the street ( they did this without asking) and the process was painless except for the $50 deposit to cover mini-bar expenses. Not just a credit card on file, $50 rung up cash...

I travelled alone, and made my reservation with Expedia, with worked fine!. I was in an interior room which faced to a little patio, not open air (not the big central patio). Patio was decorated, but in the ground floor it was some kind of room of the people who worked in the hotel, so, in the early morning (8-9...

Ask for an inside room - no street noise at all, and very little other noise either. Nice continental breakfast (fresh baked bread and pastries) at Danish-owned cafe downstairs. Rooms very big, with a/c, ceiling fan, TV, fridge, shower room. Very friendly bi-lingual staff - nothing too much trouble. Spotlessly clean. VERY slight niggles - noisy fan in bathroom, slightly...

I felt a bit cheated by this hotel and the previous reviews i had read on Tripadvisor. Yes the hotel has a great location, but...the design of the hotel is awful. It is set around a courtyard, and unless you have a room overlooking the street or on top floor, you get a dark room with the feel of a...

My wife and I stayed at the Illusion for seven nights over the holidays. It was well worth the money and we would definitely stay there again, and likely will if/when we return to Playa. Here are the pros and cons as we see them. Pros: 1. Cleanliness. The housekeeping staff was constantly cleaning, and we didn't see one bug...

I just paid my seventh visit to this wonderful property. This time for two weeks in December. To me, location, comfort and staff are what turn a good vacation into a great vacation. One block to the beach if you turn right, and one block to the legendary fifth avenue if you turn left, is unparalled in terms of location...

Found this hotel through Worldlink Travel......a great deal, especially for the price. The hotel itself was great!! Located right off 5th street in Playa (the main drag). The room was nice, very clean....not luxurious but I didn't want to pay for luxurious. Had a nice bathroom and huge shower, good dependalbe air conditioning and the hotel was VERY quiet at...

Stayed in Playa del carmen for a week at this hotel. Its very close to the beach (but not on the beach) and almost on the 5th avenue.
