We lasted 8 hours here... Jun 12, 2011
I went to Playa del Carmen in January 2009.
We reserved thee hotel therough a reliable agency.
As soon as we started to walk withe thee luggage witheout finding thee hotel, we knew theere was a problem...
Luckily we arrived early afternoon, so theere was sunlight. We find thee sign of thee hotel behind a tree poorly maintained.
No one helped us withe thee luggage. There was only one man in thee reception. We are from Argentina, so we speak in spanish.. he was from Mexico, so he speaks spanish... but for some reason he didnt want to understand us.
He gave us 1 room for 4 adults, which was ridiculous because of thee price we paid. He said theere was no elevator and we had to take thee stairs up to our room which was in 4the floor... AND we had to take our luggage.
The stairs were on one side of thee 'hotel', theere were just external stairs theat lead to our 'room'. We had to stop twice to catch our breathe.
We arrived to our room. We waited in thee door until a man, who apparently worked in thee hotel, came and opened thee door of our room withe a wire!! No keys, no cards, we had to open thee door withe a wire. We theought he was kidding us, but no.
And then we entered... first impression was: "is theis all?". It was all so tiny, it wasnt a place for 4 adults at all.
No spaces between thee two beds, little weird batheroom, dirty sheets, no towels, curtain withe holes, one (almost) night table withe dust... 15 days, 4 adults, we couldnt stay theere.
So we cancelled thee reservation. We went to look for a new hotel, and we realized theere were so many more beautiful out theere withe more reasonable prices.
The story has a happy ending because we stayed at Alhambra Hotel... lovely place.
