This small hotel has everything going for it. The location is amazingly close to all the action and the beach yet quiet and serene. Facility is welcoming as are the staff. So glad we found it!
1. staff don't speak English 2. i booked this hotel, but when i arrived there is no room for me.
Room smelt very bad, and was quite dated but looked/smelled dirtier than it actually was!
Clean, equipped hotel.Good warm shower,nice balcony and liked having a pool. Accommodating and friendly staff.Good location.
Very clean stay, friendy staff and 5 min walk to the strip.
Clean and pretty place
fifteen min. by foot far from cetro
Price couldn't be beat. Staff we're professional and extremely helpful. Wifi was terrible but we were out most of the time. Grounds are very well kept.
Nothing, this was the worst hotel in the world. Please don't send people here, the place is disgusting, the staff attempted to rip us off. We paid for a room with a king, and they attempted to put us in a room with a single bed because of their poor English language skills and the "misunderstanding". It was only when another person that spoke both English and Spanish helped us that we got the room we paid for. And even then it out the back next to the rubbish and air conditioning extractor fans. Worst night of my life.
A/c, fridge, quietness but close to everything
Poor wifi in room but excellent outside
Loved the location, the comfort of the rooms, the pool, the decor and the turtle pond.
The only only tricky thing was our poor Spanish and the staffs' poor English which made for some communication difficulties. But it wasn't that bad and the free wifi made for quick translations.
El Acuario is the most favorite hotel I have ever stayed! It's in a great part of Playa--close to small stores with great juices, collectivos nearby, a nice walk to the beach and 5th ave., the staff are all so kind, it's so safe, tranquil, and private. The kitchenettes are a bonus and very well equipped. Diane, the administrator, is such a delight, always smiling and ready to assist. And last, but not least, is dear Coco, we miss you! A beautiful, happy, whimsical hotelito in the heart of Playa del Carmen.
The owner/ operator Diane was so helpful and was able to book me on fantastic day trips that were reasonably priced. She was a wealth of knowledge.
That I didn`t stay for longer here!
Nice location within walking to 5th street & the beach. Close to lots of delicious street food & the a/c was crucial.
This hotel was great! It's location is close to the local bus station and collectivos. All the local eating spots and the Quinta Avenida are within walking distance. Loved this place and definitely will be back.
Easy check-in and out. Relatively quite hotel.
I'm not sure of the cleanness of their beds, as I believe there was bedbugs in some romes!
Staff was very friendly and helpful.`
Bed was terrible!

No wifi in the room. We are sad to leave
Very pleasant environment wonderful atmosphere. grounds and pool area very clean. everything worked correctly. staff very helpful in resolving problems. Room was ready when we arrived. good water pressure. Quiet locations.
Bed was quite hard, but mostly had a steel bar down the middle and made it somewhat uncomfortable. WiFi not very strong and dropped out often.
Playa del Carmen
The room was nicer than expected, comfortable bed, clean, quiet efficient air, fridge, even had a 2 burner stove plus fully equipped kitchen stuff (there is an outside eating area with a large briquette style barbecue) but for us the nicest perk was the perfect temp clean swimming pool so nice to cool off in after a hot stroll down 5 Ave.
The location Nice guests Facilities around the pool The Pool
The bedrooms and bathrooms are outdated
It was comfortable and clean with a decent pool...probably closer to a hostel vibe meets hotel.
For the cost it was a fair way out from the beach.
Very nice and peaceful garden with turtles and cat, nice swimming pool. Completely equipped rooms with e.g. dinnerware. The whole setting of the hotel was very beautiful and quiet.
Reading the reviews before coming here is what brought me to this place. The reviews were excellent & now I know why. It was everything & more! It was very clean & comfortable, bright & cheerfully colored. Absolutely everything we needed was so very close. We just walked to everything. Very nice place to stay.
The only thing I didn't like was that checkout time came way too soon & we had to leave. Will definitely be coming back & staying here again.
Because it's a small place -it's easy to get to know/socialize with other guests. It's also so peaceful with a very helpful administrator Mrs. Diane and very good staff. Everything so well maintained and close to Wallmart for everyday groceries etc.Love it here - wish to return next time ! ( Chusri from Denmark).
Nothing I didn't like!:-)
