OK, but not worth price

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)

The good: Liked the location, although other hotels were even better. Close to 1 end of 5th Avenue, but meant going to other end of 5th was a hike. Grounds were nice (but not that remarkable) and rooms were clean. On-site massages were very good and cheap at $30/hr. Staff was extraordinarily helpful (all but water incident below) and was the big thing that made us not totally regret staying here. Free computer/internet usage in lobby was a plus. Large shower. Lots of storage room. In-room refrigerator a nice bonus. Pool very small, but had some shaded spots, which is nice. Great crepe bistro next door. No noise issues at night.

The bad: Beds were ridiculously crazy-hard and cheap feeling, and we even like a pretty firm bed. Linens very scratchy and pillows very flat like in a $50/night hotel. (Not even sure sheets were 180 thread count? Top coverlet too scratchy to even put on skin.) Paid approx $200 USD per night, which was WAY too much though, I quickly found out. Have stayed at MUCH better hotels for less than this. This hotel would be at or near $100 per night in US and we passed much nicer hotels for half this much at better locations on or off 5th in Playa. Balcony had 2 small chairs, but virtually no other room to even stand. Included continental breakfast was just plain rolls and toast with jelly & honey. Got 1 bottle of water for first night's stay, but when we didn't receive one our 2nd night, we went to desk to ask for one. Was told owner stopped that a couple of months ago and guests got 1 bottle per STAY. What?!!! I paid the same amount the 2nd night as the 1st! Would NOT stay here again unless beds and linens were upgraded DRAMATICALLY, even if price dropped. Comfortable night's sleep is one of the most important things a hotel should offer.

June 2013 Hotel Aventura Mexicana was what we needed. Tired of the larger AI hotels we carefully checked TA & other sources like VirtualTourist. This seemed to be the best choice. Hit the nail right on the head. Front desk & Louis gave us all the info we needed & Louis helped us get a cab to go to Chaak Tun cenote which is not too far from Playa and an experience you will remember for the rest of your life. Our housekeeper made us towel animals of course & did an excellent job on the room. Grounds were beautiful, filled with tropical plants, flowers & statues with never any problem getting a lounge chair at the adult pool. We went for the VIP plan( AI ) and glad we did, only $45 US plus tax. The on site restaurant, Mayan Bistro ( review on TA ), was fantastic with great choices of Italian, Mexican, American & Mayan food choices. Service could not be better. The VIP plan is well worth the money. The room was very nice, with a comfortable bed. There is a computer you can use, with wi-fi in the lobby area.
