David, our butler for the trip was superb! We could not ask for better service than what David provided! From setting up our cabana each morning to making reservations for us, he provided top service to my group above and beyond our expectations.

This is a small hotel in playa del carmen, you can't compare it to the larger resorts simply because one: It has no beach, two it is a smaller category. However, they offer nightly shows, they do have transportation to the beach, they have a 24hr bar and they also have good food.
If you are on a budget, if you don't mind not having the beach right off of the hotel and if you don't mind staying in a small hotel this will work for you.
