There are plenty of Playa del Carmen hotels but few offer you a home away from home option right on the Caribbean beach and steps from world class shopping.

Featuring a restaurant and free bikes, Hotel La Semilla - Adults Only is in Playa del Carmen, only 215 yards away of the beach and 165 ft from vibrant 5th Avenue. Free Wi-Fi access is available.
Score from 42 reviews Exceptional
Generally poor capability in English, dinner in included half board was really poor. The lunch menue is ok but the swap was very unfavorable for the guest (in terms of value).
Location was excellent. So nice to have the lounges and facilities right on the beach. Compared to other beachfront resorts in the immediate area, Hotel Las Palapas has the nicest beach. The resort is fairly quiet and you can escape the 'madness' of Fifth Avenue. It is the best of both worlds.
The hotel really needs updating, everything was a little 'tired' and dated. The food was not particularly special and a bit too westernised for me. I thought that the Beach Club next door would be noisy but it was actually ok.
check in staff during the hours we arrived ( 1-2 pm) the other scheduled staff was wonderful, especially the concierge. we were totally ignored for 10 mins waiting for check in as staff AND MANAGER talked over room issues...not even a welcome. Then they gave us a room that was not ready and we had to go back to reception. At this point we asked for a manager that refused to talk to us. never contacted us. No cold water in bathroom faucet.
Great for families Secure Individual attention, not mass tourism Helpful staff
Food wasn't very tasty
we loved the individual palapas accomodations . So often great places like this have been replaced by mega hotels. the rooms were spacious clean comfortable and service excellent. Thw hotel used to be about he only hotel in plya but now it is surrounded by ever larger properties squeezing more and more into less and less space. the half board which was included made the experience even more wonderful. Catch this unique hotel before it two gets snatched and becomes just another mega hotel
The fans in the room old have been wonderful if they had real mosquito curtains over and around the lovely plug topped king bed. The fabrics used looked great but the air from the ceiling fan could not penetrate so we had to use the AC.
Food in other hotel was better next door than laspalagos
Beach was a town beach too busy too many boats city beach feel
Lovely gardens, pool, beach and bar areas. Hammocks on the terrace were great. Clean room. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice breakfast selection.
Dinner / lunch was a bit hit and miss - it wasn't very authentic tasting and a bit overpriced.
Very relaxing. Excellent service. There wasn't a spa on sight but they were able to bring in a massage for couples on the beach (great massage but very over priced). Rooms were clean, bottle water was provided and staff was very accommodating.
There was nothing I didn't like. Hope to go again with an ocean view room...There is no air conditioning here; so if it is something you require this is not the place for you. They did however have standard floor fans along with ceiling fans.
Everything would be perfect, if only Wi-Fi would work! We were not able to use it in our room.
Wi Fi did not work at all in our room. I think, at this day and age it is absolutely unacceptable.
Hotel rooms, location near beach and 5th Ave. Service was excellent. Loved the towel animals made daily by our maid.
Wi Fi was very erratic.
Great location. It's on the beach and also on the Main Street of Playa del Carmen. Lush tropical gardens with lovely room terraces. Food and service were wonderful.
Atmosphere, surroundings, private grounds, yet walking distance to restaurants, bars. Staff was amazing.
Time of year the new years eve entertainment at the beach bar next door. Understandable but SO loud. Concert set up for BPM.
Fantastic location, next to the famous 5th Ave., very quiet hotel for this area, nice beach, very helpfull staff.
Poor wifi, no TV in bungalows (I was missing it on the rainy days)
The ideal solution for both chilling out on the beach and enjoying Playa del Carmen's nightlife. Great location, has it's own beach and it's just behind 5th Avenue. Helpful and friendly multilingual staff. Spacious and comfortable rooms with outdoor balcony with hammocs. Great breakfast served in the morning. Very nice beach area, shares a good diving centre with the nearby resort.
Slow internet connection - not always accessible from the rooms. We went in the rainy season and the rooms very humid; even with aircon on, it was still hard to get the right temperature (maybe they need to put dehumidifiers in the rooms). There's a nearby beach club that plays loud music all day long - this didn't bother us, but it's worth knowing.
