Reina Roja Hotel Playa del Carmen Reviews
Affordable, short walk to the beach and main shopping. Jun 04, 2006
If your staying for a few weeks its a great option if you want to brush up on your Spansih. They also teach other languages. Classes were affordable and I believe you can get credit for them in some US schools but I would check with them 1st. The school is a few feet from quinta avenida (shopping) but on the quieter end further from the beach. The beach is a short walk and money exchange booths are near by.
Breakfast is included and self serve in tlhe semi enclose breakfast area while I was there the chef would fix eggs anyway you wanted them, scones, toast, yogurt and lots of fruits including fresh papaya, pineapples and melons. There was always cold water in the cooler in the breakfast area.
I booked an non private double room and was supposed to have a roommate but never did. Double rooms can be booked as private for an extra cost and they have a private bath/washroom while private rooms share a communal bath/washroom. The beds were very comfy with firm matresses. The rooms were not luxurious but they were cute, clean and comfortable. The room I stayed in had a lower level balcony with a view of the street. All rooms had A/C. The student rooms are on one side of the court yard while the library and classrooms were on the other. The school has its own little internet cafe type setup in te library at affordable prices. There is a pool and hammocks in the couryard. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Newer reviews state that the instructors were changed frequently but the only change I had during my stay was because I tested out of the beginner level. (however things probably have changed since 06') I brushed up a lot on my spanish & met a few grade school teachers from the US while I was there as well.
