    The Palm at Playa, Playa del Carmen
    Beautiful place, but SUPER loud nightclubs
    We were put in a room directly facing 2 extremely loud nightclubs: one that was open until 4am and one that was open well past 4am. Rather than sleeping in the bedroom (which was impossible with the blaring loud music), my husband and I had to sleep in the sitting area on the lounge/couch our entire stay. We spoke with the front desk regarding this issue and were told we could pay to upgrade our room only to be moved down the hall where it was still very loud. Every other aspect of this hotel was wonderful (welcomed with margaritas and chocolates, lovely breakfast included, beautiful rooftop pool, etc). However, I would never pay money to stay here again just to not be able to sleep or relax. 😕 As parents of young children, all we wanted was a relaxing, quiet getaway.

    A little noisy but excellent service and rooms!
    There are many hotel options in Playa Del Carmen. Some are tempting because they are cheaper or on the beach but from my experience they lack in quality. The Palm at Playa has the best customer service, immaculate rooms, a great roof top pool and is only a block from the main strip and beaches. I will gladly pay a little more to stay here again. My only advice is that if noise is an issue for you you may want to find a more secluded hotel. The area is very busy with many nightclubs and the hotel’s roof top has loud music playing most of the day. Of course if you come to Playa Del Carmen you probably are prepared to party anyways!

    Noisy Saturday Night
    If you plan to be out all night partying and don’t need to sleep then grab a city view room. We stayed on a Saturday night and even with the veranda doors closed we clearly heard the words to all of the music played at the clubs surrounding the hotel until they closed at 6am! Maybe a garden view (interior) room would have been a better choice for us. Rooms are lovely, beds are comfy and the service was great-the noise made none of that matter.

    Above the fray
    Our family of 4 adults; one teenager had a wonderful stay at Palm at Playa - Located in the center of action but provides a safe, nearly quiet and luxurious escape from the bustle of Playa Del Carmen. Hearty breakfasts and cool rooftop bar real highlights.
