    • Free Breakfast

    • Free WiFi

    Travelers who prefer their accommodations infused with a little bit of pizzazz should consider bedding down at Be Playa. This boutique hotel – located in central Playa del Carmen, just a few blocks from the beach – earns praise for its bright colors, unique architecture and signature decorative accents. Suites feature crisp, white linens offset by hardwood floors, contemporary furnishings and, in some suites, stand-alone soaking tubs. Though the look and feel of Be Playa is its overall draw, it doesn't suit every vacationer; some gripe that the rooms here lack separation between the bedrooms and bathrooms, while others describe the beds as exceedingly comfortable and the layout as well-designed. But design preferences aside, travelers compliment Be Playa's ultra-cool pool lounge and the fresh sushi served at the in-house restaurant, Sushi Club. Be Playa's enviable address is hard to beat, too, offering guests easy access to the Riviera Maya's soft sands and Playa del Carmen's abundance of shops, eateries and nightlife venues.
