Hotels in Playa del Carmen

Whether you’re looking to splurge or save your pennies for activities and souvenirs, there are plenty of options when it comes to hotels in Playa del Carmen. Hotel Las Palapas is one of the hotels in Playa del Carmen that makes you feel like you’re at a home away from home. These quaint, trendy cabins offer a garden view or a jungle view, and are all minutes from the main attraction: the pearly, white-sand beaches. Out of all the Playa del Carmen hotels to choose from, the Playa Quinta B&B has sweeping vistas just a quick walk away from the beaches and offers WiFi so you can stay connected and post photos to make everyone else jealous of your view. One of the best hotels in Playa del Carmen is also a hostel for frugal travelers. Hostel Playa offers the basics, but also includes backup reinforcements for rainy days, like movies, cable, free WiFi, books, and video games.
