Our Opinion

A hotel for those on a budget. This is a hotel located amongst many of the larger resorts along Cancun. Despite its budget label, the resort does well with its personable staff and well-kept rooms. The Dos Playas Cancun doesn't offer much but the price is cheap. It's hard to recommend a 2 star hotel, but if you are on a budget it might not be a bad choice.


Offering relaxation along with excellent no-frills value, Dos Playas Cancun is sure to please the budget-minded traveller. This unpretentious beachfront resort is only 10 min to downtown Cancun and 30 minutes from the airport.

Great location, value and over all experience

We recently spent several days in Cancun. It was our second visit to this hotel- I feel we have discovered a real gem here. Many of the wait staff and front desk employees went out of their way to help us and attend to our needs. I look forward to returning.

First getaway with the little one

I was very disapointed with the qualoty of the hotel. Although the ladies kept it VERY clean i was not impressed that we only got 2 water bottles (one each) at the beginning of our stay. Was told to use the water cooler to fill water bottles every day. Staff was friendly and courteous... Mr. Hips was hilarious ans ALWAYS full of energy! The pools are a little on the small side. Not many activities to do throughout the day.. The buffet is always the same for the most.part and might I add NO BACON!!! WTH! Miguel and all other staff were great and amazingly friendly. Qalmost got killed by a crazy city bus driver. Got dropped off in the middle of nowhere so beware of buses because you never know. Overall it was a good experience however, i would never stay here again. They say its a 3 star and i rated it as so however i would say its a 2-2.5 star at most. The beaches are great, clean and no coral/reef so it made it comfortable to swim team n the ocean. The excursions were amazing. Recommending Xel-ha to ALL families as that was our favorite getaway.

AWFUL hotel but at least near ferry port

Wow what a truly awful hotel. Nothing updated since at least the '80s. Room filthy. Lighting awful. TV no English subtitles or English language channels. Shower luke warm and wouldn't get hot. Shower window sealed shut and no extractor so no ventilation. Had to request blankets for the bed and when they arrived they STANK of wet dog. No hooks anywhere in room to hang stuff or chairs for draping clothes. Food was awful hence only ate one meal there. Terrible obnoxious guests drinking fluorescent drinks then puking everywhere. Was given a lock for my room safe but it didn't work so ended up storing valuables in suitcase. Only upsides: one decent beach (the quiet one), great view from room balcony, proximity to Isla Mujeres ferry from Playa Tortuga so you can escape and also get some decent grub at the ferry port.

Beautiful hotel and kind staff

A lovely hotel with a fantastic beach and view! The grounds and beaches are spotless! The staff were friendly and kind and made our stay special.The food was good, especially the breakfast omelettes and morning mimosas!There are 5 pools and it is also a minute walk away from a boat ride to a beautiful island which you can see in the distance from the beach!Thank you Dos Playas for a great stay!

Last resort resort

Has to be one of the worst experiences we ever had. Started with check in when the asked for ids. We left reception and realized we didn’t have our ids. Went back to the front desk and told them they hadn’t returned our ids. Agent at the desk said he was sure he returned them. We asked him to look. After 20 minutes the found them in the copy machine. The next day we got back from the beach at 4 pm and our room had not been cleaned. We got ready to go out and called the desk at 5pm and asked them to clean the room. We got back at 930 and the room had not been cleaned. Went to the front desk to talk to reception and were told I lit was cleaned. We told him he was wrong and he said somebody would come by and clean.Waited 1 hour for someone to show up. Net, net. Bad hotel bad food and horrible service. Worth an extra $100 night for a respectable hotel.
