We visited the Newport House Playa and stayed there to bring you this video review. Like all places we write about, we like to experience them so we can fully tell you what it is like.
What are the rooms like at the Newport House?
There are four types of rooms offered here. Each of the room types are modern, clean and well set up for a good stay in Playa Del Carmen. In each room you will find a kitchen setup, air conditioning, eating area, Wi-Fi, and smart TV’s. The rooms are bright and airy with woodgrain tile floors.
The beds are very comfortable here. Large king size with nice pillows and quality sheets will make you want to stay in bed.
We stayed in the deluxe room choice. As pictured below, you can see the kitchen with refrigerator , microwave, stove and dinning room table. This makes it nice for those times when you just want takeaway or to fix something in your room.
We had a separate bathroom off of the shower and sink area. This gives you more space and room for those that like to take longer in the mirror.
