Excellent, small, beach front hotel
Posted Mar 8, 2017
We came to this hotel after 2 days in a palapa on the beach in Tulum, so the cleanliness and comfort of this hotel was greatly appreciated. We happened to have the best "garden view" room which had a partial sea view from the patio. I love the open patio to receive breakfast. The room was a good size with a large closet and plenty of shelf space in the bathroom. There are some gadgets and offerings in the room for simple food prep too. It would be a great place to stay for a week. The location is excellent, although we are not sure what caused a strong sulphur smell coming from the beach. It did not get into the room, so that was good. The cooling system was less responsive than a previous hotel we stayed at in Playa, but worked just fine.We also really liked how this room was not a standard box, the closet and shower were both interesting triangular shapes. My only complaint is that the included breakfast was limited to things made with croissants. We opted for fruit for only a few dollars upgrade, and were happy to receive a good portion of yogurt, granola, fruit, juice, and coffee. The design of the building overall was unique and fun. This place would be ok for families, but is best for couples. Not many partiers here, nice and quiet, but friendly.
I will definitely look at this hotel again if I return to Playa del Carmen.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and especially your room with the open patio.
Regarding the smell from the beach, it was probably because of the seaweed that can be washed up at this time of the year. We are sorry for the smell, but since it is a natural phenomenon there's only so much we can do about it.
It was a pleasure having you stay with us, and we are looking forward to welcoming you back!
