    Amazing place, loved everything about it. Good choice of food, spotlessly clean, friendly staff - especially Pedro, Fernando, Polo, Jesus, Fryda and Froy. Lovely walk along the beach to Playa del Carmen. Will definitely return.

    Questions & AnswersAsk a question
    What's best to take US dollars or UK sterling to change into pesos? Are the rooms big enough for 2 adults and a teenager - do they provide a sofa bed or is there 2 double beds pushed together? Do you recommend Vaccinations for Mexico? Thanks.
