    Me sad much that prices have gone up as they did now. I'm not complaining by the price, but if going to do then put best chairs, WiFi, bathrooms with more hygiene, care must be appropriate. If they want to charge like a 5 star hotel then a five star do what. It was a place with a good price and good service. Want to charge more? Give a service like that you are charging. For those who don't know it's okay. But we have been years coming here and now with this, we will not return. Anyway.

    We have many years coming, had always loved us was a place where you could eat delicious at a reasonable price and good portions, now not only climbed the price more than 30% if not that the portions they reduced them to one higher percentage. The service and the site are still very good, hopefully this continues. Hopefully rectify at their costs.

Where to stay in Playa del Carmen

Look no farther than the shorefront if you're after a luxury hotel or resort with a swimming pool--some of the largest and most lavish options lie a few minutes from the town center, offering spacious settings and impeccable views over the water. The town center--especially the main street, Quinta Avenida--brims with smaller and more budget-friendly accommodations, a bit farther from the beach but just a stone's throw from a wide range of eateries and night spots.
