We stayed at the Illusion Boutique for our honeymoon. The hotel was nice and quiet and close to the beach. The staff was very friendly and the front desk personnel often helped us with Spanish phrases. We stayed in the Luxury Suite. The bed was large (a king) and very firm (which I like), but not uncomfortably firm. The shower...

My husband and I spent 6 nights at the Illusion last week,which was our second stay at the hotel in the last 12 months. I would recommend a room with a balcony as they're quite large and get lots of sunshine. The pool and tanning area are on the rooftop as well as a bar which was open from noon...

Great hotel for the price. Miguel at the front desk was extremely helpful and very, very nice - the rest of the staff, not so much, but he made it worthwhile.

The rooms were great and clean...

We never stayed in a Boutique Hotel before and did not know what to expect. If all of them are like the Illusion Boutique Hotel in Playa del Carmen we will always choose this kind from now on! It is perfectly located just a few steps away from the beach as well as from 5th avenue. We had a big,...

I was overwhelmingly impressed by this hotel. In the best location, very cute, and the staff (especially Miguel) were great. When we go back to Playa we won't even consider staying somewhere else.

Thank you Trip Advisor for endorsing the "Illusion Boutique Hotel" ! Exceptional value in terms of location...presentation...and service ! Miguel , Carina, & Raoull are the "consummate" hosts ! So genuine & accommodating to the extreme ! We have stayed at a number of so called "boutique" hotels worldwide that don't live up to their billing...but the "Illusion" is the...

A very clean and comfortable hotel with an exceptional front manager who went above and beyond the expected. The hotel and staff personified the spirt of Old Mexico.
