Dear Elizabeth, Thanks for your kind words about our hotel. I am glad you enjoyed relaxing in the terrace hammock, a vacation in the Carribbean without a hammock is not really right I think. Someone told me once to take out the kitchenettes and put in a yacuzzi instead, but I notice many of our guests, like you, appreciate being...

I booked this hotel after seeing the pictures and reading reviews on tripadvisors. I wanted a nice, quiet beach front experience for my first vacation to Playa del Carmen. The hotel was a perfect location, and good value for the price, located right in the middle of the beach in Playa del Carmen. It is also within 2 blocks of...
