Amazing stay at Playa Orient
We loved everything about La Paya Orient stay, just from the beginning we were greeted by staff and personally by an administrator Katy Guillot-Tournus. This feelings that we are most important people for the hotel staff did not stopped until last day. Anything you asked the staff was resolved instantly, restaurant and beach service was amazing. 10 out of 10, I would rate this hotel!

Good after cruise stay
Nice stay at La Playa for 4 nights after a cruise. ($25 USD taxi ride from cruise port). Helpful staff and good sized room over looking the white sandy beach and sea. Good on site beach club and restaurant. Other restaurants and bars a couple of minutes walk.

The property is beautiful and staff amazing! Breakfast and lunch wonderful and beach gorgeous . Would love to have a dinner option there and the bar open later. There are other dining options very close by which was awesome. Also a small gym would be a nice addition. The staff was amazing and very attentive and will definitely be going back! Highly recommend

10/10 Exceptional

Really love this place The beach is truly beautiful, with a little surf but not too much. Powdery white sand, comfortable loungers and peaceful. The rooms are very large and spacious, equipped with kitchenette and there is a small nice grocery store 2 mins walk away. You can hear the surf (maybe depending on which room). The bar and restaurant are right on the sand, with great food and service - open for breakfast and lunch - idyllic But best of all is the really genuine friendly service. Kati and Laurent really want to make sure you have a wonderful stay and are so helpful, and this culture flows through all the staff.
