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.

Score from 786 reviews Wonderful
loved the individual cabanas and the beautifully kept gardens, a real heaven.
The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Everyone from the waitstaff at the beach bar and restaurant to the concierge went out of their way to be helpful. The setting was beautiful, I loved waking up to birds chirping in the morning. The room was a good size and had everything I needed, and I loved the outdoor shower. Restaurant food varied between average and very good.
The promised wifi didn't work in the rooms, so I had to go into the lobby if I needed to get onto the internet. The beach club next door was noisy in the afternoons and evenings, although we did receive an email warning us that there would be a music festival going on and we could change our reservations.
It was truly an amazing place - we felt like we were living in the middle of the jungle in the beautiful bungalows. The food was great!
Hard to find any negative things about this hotel!
We loved the staff at breakfast and dinner..they were extremely hard working and made our meals enjoyable. We love that the beach is so close.
The hotel gave us a heads up of nearby music festivities however it was not music that we heard from 10am to 12am..it felt like a boom boom loud vibration that gave us no peace and huge headaches for 3 of our 5 days. The noise is unbearable, each morning awaken by cars and early workers banging and at night loud music and loud people partying to pass 1am so sleeping was close to impossible. There was not enough lounge chairs on the beach to accommodate hotel guest cause they offer day passes to walk ins. Although the hotel addressed it our toilet still didn't flush properly, we had use a bucket to fill water to put into the toilet to flush it.
Just spent 6 wonderful days and enjoyed it very much. Staff were all very friendly and attentive, no exceptions. Location is the best on Playa Beach and a 5 minute walk to the main street, 5th. Palapas are really cool with large patios and hammocks, grounds are tropical and exceptional, Food was excellent (new chef 2 months ago), old food reviews were just ok, loved the entertainment every other night at dinner (top notch). For a special treat as Willie (waiter captain) to do his "Mayan Coffee Show" for you at your table, it was spectacular!!!. concierge was very helpful booking tours,etc..., on site Spa. Lunch Palapa Bar, Pool, Outdoor Dining area in the sand under Palm trees with Ocean view, Beach Bar, and beach Palapas is the best combination on this stretch of beach. Other mega resorts (vegas on the sand) are gross and can't hold a candle to the unique charm of this hotel. If you are looking for five star with all resort amenities and creature comforts this is not you place, but it is really great to still have an old style beach hotel that is a manageable size with character and great service. In spite of some of the negatives we enjoyed it so much we plan to return with our family soon.
1) Noise from Mamitas Beach Club next door was always in the background, and Concert season there is just beginning. 2) No TV, 3) No in room WiFi, 4) No refrigerator in room, 5) No phone in room to communicate to front desk,
Near Quinta and directly located on the beach
Bathrooms definetely not 5 Star Standard. Old and worn down room, beds made of concrete, etc. Definetely not the standard one would expect from a 5 Star hotel at that rate!
The hotel is a great place to be at in playa del Carmen if you are looking to disconnect from the world but still have the ability to walk around get to knw the town a bit more. The private beach and the staff are wonderful. They accommodated each of our needs and their friendliness made it feel like home. I would recommend this place to couples and groups of friends that want to relax.
location, food, facilities.
there is a beach club nearby that makes some noise in the afternoon.
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)
