Holly-perks The Green Villa Guesthouse was small and clean, the staff were very nice. At times I wasn't sure who was staff and who was a guest. Great comfortable beds, clean sheets and common kitchen! No air conditioning in the rooms, and the one fan in the section I was in was directed most of the time at the other bed (where staff were sleeping) or they would turn it off when I was sleeping and would wake up so hot. I woke up one morning at 7.30am and went to the toilet and for the second time there was no toilet paper, I asked who I thought was staff in my room and she said to go and wake up the other staff member of the couch downstairs. I'm sorry but that's not ok, as a paying guest I should (a) always be able to have toilet paper in the bathroom and (b) not have to wake up the staff at 7.30am to get me some when another staff member is awake right next to me, it was unprofessional. I also asked one staff member if it was ok to stay for a while in the common area after I checked out as it was raining and I couldn't check into my other accommodation for a couple of hours she said it was totally fine and to stay as long as i liked and sit in the common area not a problem, then I said that to the other worker when I checked out and he said no that it wasn't fine and 20 mins was the longest I could wait. So I set off into the pouring rain with a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. I was going to stay for another two nights after my accommodation at the other hotel but I won't be going back unfortunately because the place is really nice.

r5dogs Wonderful budget place to stay! Very clean and well kept. The hosts were very gracious and helpful. The neighborhood was safe to be in after dark. The hotel is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main Avenida. I've travelled far and wide in Mexio and this hotel is a gem. I wish the owners well and thank them for their hospitality. Thank you, Leslie 1/20/10 - 1/26/10

sherrymcc The property is new and tastefully done with lots of counter space for preparing food, good sized lockers, and a really nice lounge area on top of the building. And it is only a block and a half to the beach! They also provide free internet service (two machines) and wifi. As with any new business there are growing pains. The only problems I experienced were faulty air conditioning and extremely loud music from a bar below the hostel. The bar situation was handled as soon as it was brought to the attention of one of the owners of the hostel. I don't know about the air conditioning as I changed to a different room. There are a variety of rooms to choose from depending on your budget. I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm for a few nights and then switched to a 6 bed mixed dorm with a bathroom for the rest of my stay. I would have prefered the upstairs 6 bed with bathroom to be a same-sex dorm because of the opaque and clear glass wall and door, and the open design of the shower wall. Other females I spoke with felt the same way. All and all my experience at Hostel Rio was very satisfying. I will definitely return to the Rio the next time i am in PDC. Suggestions: 1. Add toasters and kettles to each 'kitchen'. 2. Put a notice on the refridgerator for everyone to label their food with name, room-bed, and check-out date so everyone knows what can be tossed or labeled as "free food". 3. Also let everyone know that the fridge will be cleaned every week (say on a tuesday) and that unlabelled food will be tossed or donated to "free" if appropriate. Good job to the management and staff at Hostel Rio!!!

annacp We stayed overnight in order to catch a flight from Cancun the next day, so weren't really having a vacation, but we found the hotel great. Very friendly service, which was great. The bed was super comfortable and considering Playa del Carmen is a pretty expensive place I thought it was a good price for a lovely little hotel. Only possible disadvantage for us was we couldn't have walked between the hotel and the bus terminal with all our luggage, we had to catch a taxi (it is about 5 blocks from the main bus terminal). Backpackers could walk it and anyway the taxi was only about $3- $5.
