Smaller hotel with around 14 rooms around a patio with swimming pool. Very friendly staff. Rooms are fine, a bit old although there is new management recently that has planned renovations. One can cook in the room, which we haven’t done as the apparel is a bit old and dining out is more fun and not expensive here. Location is perfect - close to a host of restaurants, but just outside the noisy tourist area. We will probably return here for a longer time.

This is round the corner from everything you need in playa del carmen, close to 5th Avenue, close to the bus station, the collectives and the ferry. In the room we had a big bed, a fridge, microwave etc, a tv and an en suite bathroom. The WiFi is ok but maybe if you were downloading it might struggle. The cleaners come every day and it’s comfortable with everything you need. There’s an outdoor pool which we didn’t use. It’s a nice place, a bit basic but fine for us. For the price we will definitely come back here.

The hotel was lovely, very family/children friendly. All guests could get to know each other at the pool area, what was great-it was like big family:) we really enjoyed staying there. The garden and pool area were beautiful. Room was simple but good. Location very good. We would come back there.

Our family of four stayed here for 8 nights. It was convenient and affordable. We walked everywhere and it was very easy. We took advantage of how close Wal Mart was and walked there several times to stock our room fridge with bottled water and juice. The surrounding neighborhood is not great but we did not have any problems and always felt safe as the hotel is manned around the clock. The staff were attentive and we were able to pay extra every other day to have our laundry done. My daughter is a cat person and was thrilled with Coco as well as the turtles. The courtyard is very relaxing and even though small we enjoyed the pool a few days. (Bring your own wash cloths - they provide towels and hand towels but not small cloths.)

This laid-back hotel has it all, great location, very clean and modern rooms, refreshing pool to relax in after a hot day, friendly staff, cute cat etc :) We enjoyed our stay there, thanks to its size it feels very welcoming and 'human'. Loved the plants and the pool area. And each room feels like your own little studio. Very recommended!

Questions & answers about the rooms

Answer from Elacuariohtl

Buenos días, thank you for your message! We do have fridges both in your room and in the laundry room (where we can keep your medicin in case you arrive early on the day of your check-in, or leave late on the day of your check-out!). Walking from the bus station is safe, quick and easy but if you feel more comfortable you can take a taxi at the corner of Juarez and 10th avenue - cheaper than if you take one of the taxis waiting at the sitio! -. Please tell them the adress of the hotel as "Avenue 25 between Street 2 and 4". I stay at your disposal for any further information and we look forward to receiving you!
