My trip to Porto Playa was beyond amazing - I'd give it more stars if I could! The hotel was better than any I've ever stayed at in terms of its price in relation to the pristine quality. I agree with other reviewers that it almost seemed too good to be true! Porto Playa was close enough to all of he action but off the main path just enough to enjoy some peace and quiet, too. The 3 story penthouse we stayed in was pure luxury, including amazing views of the beach from the master suite and rooftop, incredibly comfortable beds, and decor that I wish I could have taken home with me! It was incredibly spacious and had a fabulous full kitchen that was perfect for reheating our delicious local leftovers for quick snacks and lunches. The staff was also great and Jose at the front desk was always available to us to answer questions or check in on us to see how our stay was. Although we didn't spend too much time at the pool as we preferred the beach club, the pool was still great! It's on the second level which I thought was really cool and it was usually pretty quiet by late afternoon, so we typically finished off our day with a quick dip while the sun was setting. In regard to the beach club, where most of our time was spent, I was literally hugging the staff by the end of the trip. They were so attentive, friendly, and the service was excellent. Kike, a staff member, even came to the rescue with aloe and cool, wet towels to calm our sunburn! In terms of the food, Porto Playa was right near everything you could ask for. I still couldn't tell you what my best meal over my 6 days there was as everything was so amazing. Whether you're into the local Mexican food, French food, Italian food, larger, more busy restaurants, or quiet, off the beaten path restaurants, it's all available to you and all within walking distance. The night life is great too! From clubs, casual bars, swanky rooftop lounges, and beach side bars, there are many options to have fun and let loose. All in all, I would recommend Porto Playa in a heartbeat to anyone looking to visit Playa Del Carmen and I plan to revisit as soon as I can!
