The hotel is located away from the active city center of Fifth Avenue and the beach, making Hotel Plaza Playa del Carmen a great hotel for a retreat after sunbathing on the beach or partying in a club.

The hotel is rather simple; it doesn't have a pool, it isn't by the beach, and it isn't a luxury resort. The hotel is, however, cozy and friendly. And not just friendly towards its guests (which it certainly is since the owner takes personal involvement) but towards the environment.
