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.

No more than Ok

I stayed in this property last week in an all inclusive plan, the property it self is confortable and the beach is only ok (there is much nicer beaches near by) the food was good for an all inclusive small hotel like this however they could have a bigger selection, room was confortable with a nice lagoon view.The bad: there is too many things being repaired in the hotel and makes it look dirty. Activities by the pool were boring it doesn’t attract the people.

Rough start but people made up for it.

I will admit that our first impression of this resort was not very good. We go in to a room with black mold in the bathroom, broken fixtures and just all around run down. Then when we go to the buffet and saw the pool there was shut down, we were super disappointed.The reason I am giving Dos Playas 4 stars however is because of the people, the staff! Absolutely outstanding service. These people went above and beyond every day to make sure we were happy. Miguel, Mauricio and Jose were incredible at the buffet and Ignacio at the bar by the pools was fantastic! Can't say enough good about them.The food was also very good, we always found plenty to eat. Security always made us feel very safe as well.While Cancun wasn't really my thing (too commercialized, I prefer Cuba), the staff at Dos Playas made our stay a great one!

Nice Hotel and Great Staff

It was our first holiday in Cancun and so pleased with our choice of all inclusive hotel. All the staff throughout our stay were great - all very friendly, helpful and hardworking (especially one of the restaurant staff Inocencio). Restaurants had lots of Mexican cuisine to choose from, which we really liked. Also enjoyed the good choice of fresh fruit available and the Thai dinner. Our room was simple, but nice and thoroughly cleaned each and every day. The hotel's beach, especially the stretch furthest away from the ferry terminal, is excellent - with plenty of space and sun-loungers. Taking into account the price we paid, couldn't fault anything. Would not hesitate recommending to anyone.

Great for what it is, would not hesitate to be back

We stayed there for one night on way back from Isla Mujeres, because we did not want one of the big box hotels. We knew that this is a 3-star (and had our expectations adjusted accordingly) and did not regret our choice. The hotel staff was exceptionally nice and helpful, the whole place was spotlessly clean and the fellow guests were a nice mix of ages, languages and nationalities. The room was perfectly adequate for our needs: everything worked and the beds were comfortable. The food in the buffet was fresh and tasty, with good selection. There is choice of a number of pools and beaches are one can use the facilities of the sister hotel next door as well (we went to the beach there as it was more quiet). The loungers are abundant and in order, the sunsets are beautiful, there are shops and bus stops next door and we caught a cab right outside the door to go to the airport: a new car for a good price with a friendly driver. All in all a success and really good value for the money. We stayed in plenty of 5 star, 4 star and 3 star hotels and this one delivers exactly as advertised. Nice people, good vibes, clean, convenient location, good food. Thumbs up, Dos Playas!

Going back

It's was nice and clean. The staff was friendly when we were there in March of 2016. The food was good and lots of it . We had a room just across from the pool nice walking distance from the beach and were you eat and to leave to explore. Went to PV last year couldn't find a deal to go back last March . Going back this coming March can't wait.
