Jr Suite, partial ocean view, All-Inclusive, November 2016: Much is charming and service was outstanding. Food outstanding except for the "24 buffet" is only a very small snack room with limited support (you know, service, extra limes, cream, etc), but at least "something" is available almost always, but it is not a conventional buffet. All inclusive drinks were only average.... More

It was in November 2013. We liked it here, the rooms were quaint and comfortable. The food was pretty good and the location was interesting. At the end of 5th Ave. - we packed a beach bag daily and ran the gauntlet of vendors down to the beach 10 minutes away and the sister resort where you could get drinks... More

We walked past here last Feb. to see the area again since we had once stayed at the Real. The hotel was being leveled. Not sure what is intended for the location but this end of 5th av. is really up and coming. It is a whole different vibe and really enjoyable to stroll, eat and shop.

This place was the hole in ground. The room was gross, we didn't get a hot shower the whole time we were there. The buffet was nasty, there food was old and dry and there were fruit flys all over it. We would have starved if we didn't go out to eat. The beach was a 10 minute walk and... More

Our winter getaway to Playa Del Carmen was even more extraordinary with our stay at the Gran Porto Real! Our housekeeper Celene Romero did an exemplary job keeping our room tidy and every day making our room a romantic palace with rose petals and towel sculptures. The hotel provides every possible amenity and the staff is super friendly. Most of... More

We booked out stay at Real Playa del Carmen online. We had been to Playa Del Carmen many times prior, always staying at smaller 3 star hotels, so this was a hotel that looked like our "norm". Location was ok, but I prefer to be closer to the main part of 5th. Service was ok. Rooms were below what we... More
