DISAPPOINTMENT IN PARADISE

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 26, 2007

I ALWAYS plan my holidays after reading all available reviews... For some reason I allowed the stunning photos of the Illusions to overcome my better judgement... We arrived mid afternoon after travelling into Playa del Carmen from the Isla Mujeres... The hotel is set off the street and the lobby was inviting... However our Luxury Suite on the pool deck was adequate, overpriced and on the thouroughfare from elevator to pool... Because all natural light comes in through the sliding glass doors there is not much privacy from the foot traffic...We tried for days to get upgraded to the EMPTY King Suite... After much ado we were finally moved for the final two days of our stay... Do not be decieved by the pool photos. It is really just a cooling off pool 21/2 feet deep and about the size of a small bedroom... There were also a number of families with children ranging from 7 to 15... I like children - I have five of my own... But when I pay for a childless experience I expect a childless experience... We also spent two days without hot water - something that I gather from other reviews is not uncommon - and subsequent days without tv reception... The continental breakfast is inadequate - coffe and toast- fruit, cottage cheese and yogurt are an additional $5 US dollars.. I would neither return to the Illusions nor recommend it...

Unique Quality: The view from the pool deck was outstanding... Close proximity to beach... Great water pressure in the shower...

Directions: Main shopping district off 5th Ave
