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.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Kim G :
Very good customer service

It is a small hotel in the middle of gigantic hotel buildings . The beach is amazing, just a walk away from hotel rooms. The staff are great esp our amigo, Luis, from the dining room and Sara from the front desk. They are always helpful and happily answers any questions we have. The grounds are well maintained, every corner of the place seems attended. I am not fan of the daily menu but any recipe of the chicken never disappoint.If you want a personalize service, Dos playas is for you.

Great Staff

We had a great time with the staff there, especially Joseph, Gerardo and Monse. They were all extremely friendly, helpful and got involved in group activities making us feel welcome. They even gave us great recommendations for activities to do that ended up being a lot of fun and a good experience. Great staff, and genuinely nice people.

Hotel Dos Playas

Very nice hotel and accommodating. We arrived early in the morning and they were very accommodating and allowing us to check in early. Not what I expected we were amazed of the outstanding service we received. The staff was very nice and friendly. The hotel is close to everything especially if you plan on going to Isla Mujeres. Relaxing first day in Cancun.

Gem of a hotel

I really don't understand how this hotel is rated 3.5 star. It far exceeded my expectations. Staff were amazing and welcoming. Hotel was very clean, I mean it was spotless. Rooms were clean. The beach was one of the better beaches I've been to. Buffet was always good and the tacos on the other side of the beach were amazing. Would definitely visit here again.

Stayed here last week for 9 nights. It's what you expect for 3 stars! Pool is clean. Plenty sun beds around the hotel. Good view of the beach. Same food all week with special of the day! Bar doesn't open till 1030 in the morning! A/c worked good in the room. Shower water could have been a little warmer. Cleaner came every day and made the bed also. Good location not far from Coco Bongo and other clubs. Good hotel all round!
