My husband & I stayed here last week and loved it. The room was beautiful, spacious & had an amazing view of the ocean from our balcony! We enjoyed having breakfast brought to our room and the beach/pool area was clean and enjoyable. We loved the location and had no trouble with any noise. Another fun perk was getting a...

This hotel is has a few flaws that are by no means obvious when booking. The room and staff are of a high quality but it is marred by location. This hotel is now next to 3 open fronted nightclubs that blare out their music sometimes up until 6am. We had the best room in the hotel, furthest from the...

I would give this place 5 stars were it not for the stairs. We stayed on the top floor, oceanfront and there was no elevator and a skinny little spiral staircase up. With that said, having just came from a mega all-inclusive, this little hotel was a very nice and much needed change. Beautiful place. We had a huge balcony...

We stayed at playa palms for a week, and were very satisfied. The rooms and staff were gre a t. Great location in the midst of town. The beach was ok; boats anchored detracted and the surf was rough with a lot of seaweed, but swimmable.

Great hotel at a great location, very small beach in front of the hotel. Close to the real action on 5th street where all the restaurants and shops are. You can eat better for less getting away from the tourist area.

We stopped into this hotel after dropping my daughter and mother off at the airport, we had booked for one night and decided to stay an extra night after seeing the room and the balcony with a view. We stayed in a suite on the second floor, it was very nice and very quiet.
