What can I say? This place is charming. I'm enchanted with it really. Such a laid-back, relaxing, sophisticated atmosphere, with the kindest staff. It was our 3rd time to stay. I love this place so much; I can't even complain about our last night there, when we had issues with cool air. (Sometimes paradise is hot.) Be Playa handled the...

We enjoyed our stay with the only issue is the music from the roof top bar ( not sure it's the hotel one or the one across the street from us) Perhaps try to stay away from 3 rd level or a corner room (the noise from the street) Being a frequent traveller to Thailand, the food in playa del...

My husband and I chose this hotel based on TA reviews, and it lived up to our expectations. Be Playa is centrally located, being about a 5 minute walk from shopping, dining or the beach, with décor that is a funky mix of modern and retro.
