6/10 Good

Maintenance of the best Rooms are not well done. From the Doors to the Water heater we had problems. I don't think they have inspectors. After 3 attempts to fix each thing they were finally resolve. Seems like they are more interested in selling memberships. Who's has the time for resolution?

The staff was very helpful. The resort was beautiful. The rooms were clean, the only negative thing was our room had a leak in the roof that they had to repair 3 times.

We Love The Fives
This is our 2nd stay & we love the resort. The Fives is all about the positive fun vibe you get. It's a classy resort but is not filled w/ snobby pretentious people. You'll find a diverse group of visitors. There's families and couples, older and young, all races, and various nationalities all together having a great time. The rooms are really cool & have full kitchen (including a stove), lots of cabinets, patio, dining table, TV's, large tub, modern shower, extra powder room, & double sinks in the bathroom. There's several restaurants on site and the food is very good. The property is well maintained and includes an enclosed jungle area with a walkway for guests to explore. The pools are amazing. The main pool extends at least half the length of the resort (lazy river style). There's an adults only pool with bar and seating. There's also a large pool right by the beach that gets very lively. 4 enclosed bars, bars at the pools, and around a couple more around the property. The Fives is nicely situated in area that's a 10-15min drive to downtown Playa del Carmen, 30 min ride to Tulum (if you head south), 30min to Cancun (if you head north), & 15min to various water activities. You'll really like The Fives & Playa del Carmen if you don't want the well developed commercial setting of Cancun. They need to improve their check-in process. The resort shows it age at times and they need to replace/repair some minor things in the rooms (fixtures) and around the resort.

It was ok. Lot’s of things in our suite were not working. No nightlife! Not even weekend DJ’s!!! A bit boring for a resort. With so many places to choose from, choose somewhere else.

4/10 Fair

The property overall was fine. The rooms are not what the pictures shoes. We had trouble getting our exact room we booked. The front desk is a joke. No customer service at all. I don’t want to make it a race thing but it definitely was. Just poor service and food options are limited and not so good. I’ll never come back here

2/10 Poor

When I went through Expedia, I specifically searched for ALL Inclusive. The total price was bit high for 3 nights even they said I stayed 4 and I did not- I was still on plane. I got there in the morning and front desk said I was not all inclusive and now I have to pay extra $115 per night if I want food included. I explained that it should be all inclusive already but they blamed Expedia for posting wrong info. I blame Expedia and Five Hotels for this giant mistake And lies. It was suppose to be my 35th birthday and mothers present but I just wished I never went there. Besides the extra charge- You have to reserve every you go to eat- no matter if it’s lunch or dinner. They make it like they so “Fancy” but in reality they are not. Food was ok when I did had to wait and get it in two restaurants. I ordered room service on occasions Because I couldn’t get in into restaurants- food was so dry and tasteless, I wouldn’t even give it to a dog. I am not joking. Don’t order pancakes or waffles unless you want to choke on it- it’s so dry. Don’t order shuttle trough them- they charged me $80 one way- when I did asked to bring me yo hotel and back yo Airport. So I had to pay another $60 to get taxi. I went here to lay on the beach mostly- beach was so dirty and tons of seaweed that there were maybe 10 desperate people in it. You also have to walk a lot here! There is golf carts shuttles every 10 min or so but who wants to stand and wait in heat that long?! Safe your money.
