Casa Melissa
Ranked #22 of 185 Playa del Carmen B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 7, 2017 via mobile

This was our sixth time in Playa and we've always tried staying at different places. We typically have a short list of qualities we look for (clean, convenient, inexpensive, and safe). Casa Melissa has all of these qualities. It's steps from the ADO bus station and 5th Avenue, but far enough away where you don't hear all of the noise. We had a room that didn't face the plaza, so I can't say much else for the noise level near the park. It's a basic hotel and the pool isn't much to write about (horrible view), but with so many beautiful beaches a short drive away - who cares? Staff is courteous, but don't necessarily go out of their way to make you feel special. No wifi in the rooms, but strong signal by reception. Clean towels are provided everyday. Bed is a little on the hard side for our taste, but not too bad. Great AC. Clean sheets. Good channel options with English channels included. No onsite restaurant, but so close to 5th Ave. it doesn't matter. GREAT OPTION if you're on a budget, but want to stay somewhere clean, safe, convenient and inexpensive!!

As a solo traveler this place was nice. Simple and clean. Staff is friendly and everthing you need is close by.

They have an old key system (actual key) so don't lose it or you will have to pay bucks. Also pool at hotel faces a big empty lot which ruins the experience but overall this place was okay. It's 10 steps out the front and your beach is there. Plus all the coconuts you can drink right outside

We had a room with double beds.There was not a lot of space outside of that. The bathroom and closet size were OK. The rooms were clean but the beds were uncomfortable. The staff was not welcoming, and the "ocean view" had a lot full of junk (literally) in front of the hotel. Good location though.

This is our second time back to this little jem. Nice big, clean rooms. We had a Jr. Suite which was quite large and had a bar area with fridge coffee maker and extra sink.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is top notch Close to everything
See you next year!

We came across this little hotel after renting a car in cancun with no particular itinerary. Once arriving in Playa this was the first hotel we checked out and we liked the looks of it. We continued to look at 4 more hotels. All of them more expensive, worse locations and no where near as clean inside. So we ran back to the melisa to book our room. The first night we had one bed. The bed was quite small, but then again my partner is 6,3 and a bed hogger!! The a/c gave us a few initial problems along with the tv but both were fixed immediately. We had a side view of the pool and could see the ocean to the right of us. There was a complimentary bottle of water in the room. The next night we decided to take a larger room. It was lovely. A small balcony and clean bathroom. Two double beds and lots of storage. We were minutes walk to the beach, wah wah bar (which had phenomenal music) and the ferry terminal for Cozumal. The hotel is situated just off of 5th Avenue. We walked all the way down to 38th and then walked the beach all of the way back. We loved it so much that we stayed for a third night. I would suggest this hotel for anyone looking for a well priced hotel just off the busy strip. We will definitely be back.
