Beautiful Hotel on the Beach!

Pros: Everything about this hotel was great! The unobstructed view of the ocean and direct beach access were the best.
Cons: I thought everything was great!
Location: The hotel is literally less than a minute walk from 5th Ave which is the main strip in Playa to shopping, food, and entertainment.
When I had the opportunity to spend a night in Playa Del Carmen, this hotel was recommended to me by the locals. It has a very sleek and modern design that is repeated throughout the hotel from the lobby to the rooms and up on the rooftop deck and pool. The restaurant is an indoor/outdoor type set-up and you are able to get the amazing ocean views from any seat. The food was some of the best I've had, especially the grilled octopus, and the waitstaff were on top of all of my needs without hovering or being too pushy. I was actually able to book the Reef Suite for an awesome price and when I did eventually find my way to bed (the rooftop bar is seriously awesome y'all), I slept like a baby. It is an adults only hotel (except for the restaurant which is fine) so you can't vacation here with your kiddos but it was actually really nice to know that there wouldn't be any screaming babies sleeping in the room next to mine! The hotel and staff were amazing and I will definitely be staying here again!
