The Palm at Playa Hotel-Boutique Hotel Review

Chic rooms and amazing rooftp view!

The Palm Hotel Playa Del Carmen

The Palm at Playa Hotel opened December 2012 in Playa Del CaThe Palm at Playa Boutique Hotelrmen. This 69 room hotel brings very large deluxe rooms to the center of Playa that rival many all inclusive hotel rooms. This can give you the opportunity to stay in style and be downtown in Playa to visit all the great restaurants. This might just tempt you to jump off the all inclusive hotel stays and move to the stylish hotels in town. Not only are the rooms a great feature of this hotel but you get an awesome roof view looking over Playa Del Carmen and over the Caribbean to Cozumel. You will also get a quiet refuge with a tropical courtyard in the center.

Hotel Palm Prices

This is where you can see the value of this place. We randomly chose some dates on our link on this page for some prices. Depending on dates and level of room you wish for, prices ranged $150-$340 a night. That can be quite attractive for a couple to stay at this boutique hotel. Think about it, many all inclusive hotels can be $400-$500 a night. With the savings it affords you plenty of cash to skip the buffets at the all inclusive hotels and actually eat at a real gourmet restaurant in Playa. Try plugging in some dates to see what prices are available for the dates you want to visit.

Hotel Palm Rooms

We really cannot stop mentioning the large size of these rooms as well as style. Also we have to tell you about the showers! Imagine a large glassed in room with two showers. These also are very large and very sexy.

If you are coming for a romantic stay ask about romantic packages for the room or even private dining on your balcony.

Recommended For:

We recommend this hotel for couples that want a stylish place to stay and that can be romantic. For the single person wishing to pamper themselves with a nice stay and explore all that Playa Del Carmen has to offer. It can be good for small groups that may be on business since they do have a small conference room available for use on the roof. Wedding groups could find this to be an attractive place to stay since they have 69 room available and the rooftop can be reserved for private parties.


The Palm Hotel is located on 8th Street between 5th Avenue and 10th Avenue.
