Reef Playacar is a beachfront, all-inclusive resort in Playa del Carmen. It's got a lot of the same bells and whistles as its competitors: two outdoor swimming pools, several bars and restaurants, jungle-like grounds, a small spa with a gym, and organized entertainment, along with some of the same complaints found elsewhere: charges for Wi-Fi, aggressive time-sales pitches, and crowded pools. Air-conditioned rooms are comfortable enough with private balconies, coffeemakers, and stocked minibars -- though some guests have complained about everything from noise to stained sheets. Overall, this is a decent choice with some of the same frustrations usually found in this price category. It may be worth paying more to stay at The Royal Haciendas, where Wi-Fi is included and the rooms are nicer.
