"Stayed at Reef Club Playacar -..." Ciudad del Carmen Hotel Tip by Patriquin

Ciudad del Carmen Hotels: 5 reviews and 6 photos


Stayed at Reef Club Playacar - 4 star all-inclusive that I'd rate 3.5. The administrative service had an attitude, the blue-collar, front-line service could not have been nicer. Nice place, lots of energy, food OK, kinda bland. Rooms very nice, clean, spacious. There are two rows of 3, 4 story buildings that enclose a jungle-ish garden. Ask for a room at the front buildings if you don't like the dark jungle atmosphere, which we found rather dank, moist, heavy. The second week we moved up and were much happier about location. The beach is beautiful, scuba available right in front at beach hut. Drinks very good, pizza, chicken, burgs, dogs, fries at the beach palapa. Italian reservation restaurant on the 2nd floor is good - not very flavourable, but definitely not bad by any means. Lower buffet restaurant is always clean, food very palatable - North American tourist orientation. Pool cold - but ocean warm & lovely. Just a 10 minute walk through a beautiful residential section to village Playa del Carmen - with funky restaurants, bars, silver jewellry stores, silver jewellry stores, tiendas de joyas de plata and the ferry to Cozumel.
