“Very nice cozy bett, not loud like many hotels in Playa but near to the center and the beach. Poll on rooftop veery cool.””
“Secluded yet close to everything in Playa del Carmen””
“Everything. Loved the location just a short walk to the main fifth avenue and, with the exception of the off and on Wi-Fi, the staff simply were amazing and very helpful. I would come back in a heartbeat. Perfect for romantic getaway. The view is better than photos can show.”
I stayed here as my first stop on the journey and it was a great little find. It’s just on the outskirts of the crazy town (approx 25 min walk and very easy as it’s on 5th ave. so one path into the town).
The room was very clean and comfortable and Dani was the most friendly and thoughtful host. The WiFi went down one evening and he helped me try and fix it for an hour and in the end used his personal hotspot.
If you want a party hotel this is not the one for you as there is no social area other than the rooftop pool (which was also a great addition for afternoon relax).
It’s very close to Punta Esmeralda beach which is less busy than the main Playa beach.
Thanks for a great start to my travels 🙂
First I have to compliment the rooftop pool at the Ocean Zen Suites. The infinity pool is spacious and the view of the ocean and Cozumel in the distance is impeccable. The furniture is comfortable and extraordinarily well-made. The hotel also sets itself apart from competitors by providing filtered rain water for drinking and lavishes guests with honey-based soap and shampoo. The rain water is unlike anything I’ve ever tasted and the scent of the bath products is absolutely heavenly.
As if these were not enough, the hotel is committed to working with local communities. Much of what you find in this hotel is made in cooperation with locals and the Mayan people. The Ocean Zen Suites is a model for what other hotels should be when it comes to sustainability and assuring locals benefit from the business. I highly recommend staying at this property.”
