Nothing special, ok room with decent bathroom. Made it difficult for me to be refunded for a double booked room though.

Only good thing is close to beach and La Quinta

Posted 22-Jun-2014
Room felt old no phone no elevator and I hate the fact that the control to the TV was attached to the cabinet water pressure was bad in the shower. The only good thing was that it was close to shops but everything is over priced.

Dear Client, Thank you for your comments which are very important to us in order to improve the hotel and its services. The hotel room have no telephones and neither we have elevators which are also not advertised. We offer a Whatsapp communication with the Reception in case the client has any wishes and within the next 6 months we will install telephones in centrally located areas of the hotel. The remote controls are fixed to the cabinet next to the bed but a separate control can be requested at the Reception. The location of the hotel is very central in the heart of Playa del Carmen at the 5th Av close to a variety of shops, lounges and entertainment. Looking forward to seeing you soon here at the hotel Sincerely Sales Director

Worst Hotel in Playa del Carmen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted 20-May-2014
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Restore the whole hotel and change all the staff.
Location: The location is good, there's a lot of restaurants and shops near.
This is the worst hotel in Playa del Carmen, when we arrive they didn't gave us the room that we booked they gave us another one and it was smelly, old, and dirty, and we have a late arrival guarantee, and the front desk staff was rude and they didn't resolve our problem, they offer us a suite that was the same as awful as the other one with an extra charge. the next day they give us the room that we originally book and it was horrible, and old, is not like the pictures on expedia. you don't have phone, hair dryer, and iron or iron board in the room, they have one for all the hotel and you have to go to the reception area to ask for it. Awful experience don't book this hotel, there's a lot more hotels better then this one in Playa del Carmen and with better rate.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for the comments. We have done a variety of changes at the Reception in order to improve the service for our clients. The rooms do not have a hair dryer or ironing board which is also not advertised by the can be requested at the Reception anytime. All the requests of the clients are subject to availability and never confirmed by the hotel but we are always doing our best to accommodate the request of the clients but sometimes it does not work out. The hotel offers the stand room category which is the Mexican style rooms and the Deluxe rooms which are renovated and more modern style, all rooms have AC, ceiling fan, wifi free of charge, safety box $ and a terraze or balcony distributed in five buildings in the heart of Playa del Carmen Looking forward to seeing you soon again at our hotel.

El Tukan - Don't Stay Here

Posted 16-May-2014
Hotel was not clean. Front desk staff not friendly. Paid for all inclusive which meant you were NOT able to eat at the hotel restaurant you had to cross the street to eat or get drinks. They gave you access to a beach club which you have a small corner of the club said it was all inclusive but did NOT include food! You had tp be shuttled to the beach in order to even get yo the KOOL beach club. they gavd you access to thr pool at the beach but could only use the chairs by the pool if you paid $10. Also purchased all inclusive excursions not true only Xel-Ha was all inclusive Xcaret we were there till 9:00pm and were only given one meal not sure they know what all inclusive means! Shuttle bus dropped us off 10 blocks away from our hotel said it was 3 blocks after a long hot day with kids walking was not how I wanted to end my day. Do NOT stay at this HOTEL! EVER

Location is great

Posted 15-May-2014
Pros: location
We stayed here for a night while in Playa. It is directly on fifth avenue and is super fun for that reason. If you like to venture out at night and dont plan on spending a ton of time in the room its great. Not super quiet and the pool is decent. Hot tub was as cold as the pool. We are in our mid twenties and had a lot of fun here though.

all inclusive deal which was pretty good value for one night although you only got to use one restaurant - the food wasn't great but as we were only there for a night before leaving it was fine - don't think would want to stay there for longer stay on this basic plan but otherwise perfectly good place. Location right off 5th Avenue can't be faulted

Great central location

Posted 24-Apr-2014
Pros: This hotel had nice facilities including a pool and a beach club. they had the main hotel on one side of 5th avenue and rooms on the beach side too.
Location: its in the heart of playa del carmen so beach and party really - i'd definitely recommend a day at Xel-Ha though. Soo much fun!
We only stayed one night as we were passing through on our way somewhere else. the room was comfortable with fully functioning facilities. the only downside was that it was across the street from a bar which played really loud music until 2am. it didn't bother us because we were so worn out we collapsed into bed but if you are a light sleeper this is probably not for you.

Not fancy but Great location

Posted 15-Apr-2014
Stayed for 2 nights in Playa for our honeymoon and it was great location for night life and beach. Not the best food and an older room for sure but great staff who upgraded us to a king bed and a clean hotel. The all inclusive is not what you would expect for drinks. Over all nice pool area would stay again!

There was a horrible sewer smell in our room; It appears to come from the actual pipe system of the hotel. The room was clean but for the price you pay $160 per night it is absolutely overpriced as compare to the hotel quality you find for this price in the USA. It was 1 night stay so I don't know if this issue is consistent all the time.
