Bottom Line

The Pueblito Luxury Condo Hotel is an upper-middle-range condo property set across a small road from the beach on a quiet section of the Playa del Carmen downtown strip, though none of the 40 rooms have direct ocean views. Rooms are spacious and come with full-sized kitchens, but the hotel offers next to nothing in terms of amenities, save for a couple of swimming pools, including an adult-only infinity pool on the rooftop. While this is a fine option for couples and families looking for a place where they can cook their own meals, couples who prefer a more traditional hotel experience (and services) may want to consider the similarly priced, adult-only Palm at Playa instead. Families who don't mind a larger property should compare rates with Azul Fives by Karisma.

Oyster Hotel Review

Pueblito Luxury Condohotel

Scene

Self-catering condo property popular with families and couples alike

The Pueblito Luxury Condo Hotel is a condo property with wide-open spaces, a pleasantly landscaped garden, well-maintained grounds, and elevators leading to upper-floor rooms. Common area decor is dominated by lots of cream-colored marble matched with chocolate-brown sofas and trim and a mix of darker wood furniture. Rusty red accent walls and decorative panels add warmth to the space. Expect plenty of flagstone in the public areas, as well as river-rock accents and natural-stone trim. While the property is pleasant, it lacks the facilities of a hotel, instead targeting travelers, including families, couples, and groups of friends, who want a home-like feel. While the vibe is usually pretty relaxed, it can get rowdy with partiers here at times.

Location

On a northern section of Playa del Carmen’s lengthy tourist strip, close to the beach

Pueblito Luxury Condohotel is situated across from a northern section of Playa del Carmen's beach that gets fewer tourists than some of the more central areas. It's not right on the sand -- the bungalows lining the beach around here belong to the pricier Mahekal Beach Resort -- but it's about a 30-second walk away. It's also about a 10-minute walk from Mamita's Beach Club and KoolBeach Club, where guests get discounts. The famous 5th Avenue strip is around a five-minute walk from the hotel. From there, one can find dozens of restaurants, bars, clubs, and shops. The ADO bus station is around 25 minutes away on foot, while getting to the airport in Cancun takes about an hour by car.

Rooms

Fully furnished condos with rooftop access and variety of decor 

Pueblito offers 40 privately owned condos, and while they all follow similar decor themes, there is some slight variation from unit to unit, depending on owner preferences. Expect to find wide-open spaces with tile floors modern furniture, granite countertops, hardwood trim, Persian blinds, balconies, and artwork. Muted cream is the primary color, with natural wood as the backdrop. 

All condos are fully furnished, with flat-screen TVs and safes, plus kitchens equipped with full-size fridges, stoves, and microwaves, at a minimum. The property provides guests with a couple of bottles of water on arrival, and while rooms have coffeemakers, coffee costs extra (but is provided in rooms, minibar style). Bathrooms are simple, with tile floors and matching walk-in showers. Toiletries and hairdryers are provided, as are beach towels.
