Our Opinion

The Allegro Playacar offers a close proximity to the town of Playa del Carmen. Guests can easily stroll into town and enjoy the shops, restaurants and bars. Lots of repeat clientele continue to visit this 4 star resort. The food and rooms are nice but nothing special. Strong tides have caused some beach erosion in front of the hotel. If the price is right this hotel is good for couples and singles looking to be close to Playa del Carmen.


Located in the heart of the Playacar resort area, the Allegro Playacar features its charming thatch-roofed villas, providing all the comforts of home. The rooms at the Allegro Playacar feature walk-in closet space, and a bathroom complete with modern basin sinks. Enjoy the white sand and stunning water of the Caribbean Sea. Only minutes from the town of Playa del Carmen, close to shopping and local sightseeing.

Location: Beachfront in Playacar, 5 minutes from Playa del Carmen, 45 minutes from the airport.

  • Nice stretch of white sand beach
  • Located walking distance to downtown Playa del Carmen
  • Two large pools, one for activitiy and one for relaxation
  • Kids Club and pool
  • Green Globe Certified for environmentally sustainable practices

beautiful resort

this was our second trip to Allegro Playacar.. the changes that they have made are wonderful. the rooms have been updated and are so much nicer. the staff was friendly and remembered you. The Mexican restaurant is not as good as last year, but they have added a oriental restaurant that is excellent. the buffet at night did get a little old with mostly the same thing every night. The resort is small and easy to get around. the beach is beautiful. Location is excellent, close to Playa Del Carmen. Good job Barceló for making a nice resort a awesome resort!!

Allegro Playacar

We had an absolutely fantastic vacation at Allegro Playacar! The resort is gorgeous and well maintained. The beach is fabulous! Jorge has an excellent waiter and bartender staff. Breakfast buffets and poolside lunch are a must with Humberto, Bernardo, Alejandro & Emmanual! Abel and Manuel are magnificent bartenders who remember exactly what your preferred drink is! The walk ways and restaurant area is kept clean thanks to Sarri and Mirivinena (I think I have the spelling wrong on these names but they were wonderful!). Are Rooms were spacious and clean. Thanks to Thelma who kept our room clean and fridge stocked with water and beverages! The Raptor Guy with the falcon was fun to watch and kept any pesky birds away. Daytime poolside entertainment was fun and enjoyable! The night time buffet food gets repetitious but you can always book reservations for Mexican, Italian or Asian cuisine. People enjoyed the nighttime entertainment at the outside theater but we preferred the quieter evenings at the poolside bar. Daniel takes good care of delivering luggage quickly to your room. Also a special mention to Jose, David and Fredi who were the night time wait staff at the buffet and always remembered us and our preferred table!

Staying at Allegro Playacar

The grounds are very well kept, a lot of work being done even in the peak season. They have added an "A LA CARTE" oriental restaurant it is a good idea and the meal and service were very good, but for that they have taken part of the seating area of the BUFFET. What is negative on my part, a lot less choices in the BUFFET, missing a lot of good choices we had the previous years. And of course like every year, there are a lot of fans above us and this cools your plate, so you eat cold. I love Mexicain food and Italian food but I don't like my food when it is cold. So a lot of times I had desserts for my meals.

5 Stars to Zero

The service staff was fabulous, friendly, helpful and soon recognized us. We probably doubled tipped in some cases for outstanding service. The food too was wonderful. The buffet was perfect for dinners and only ate 2 times at the other restaurants. Breakfast and dinner both had stations for made to order items. Lunch by the pool was equally as good. Now for the Zero Star.We arrived on Saturday, now this was a dive trip, and the front desk did not have a clue as to where the dive shop was. We wanted to check in and get set up to start diving on Sunday morning. As it turned out ProDive had a representative by the pool and the operation was at an adjoining hotel. ProDive was 5 Star Plus operation! So now we missed the morning dives.And now the room. We complained Sunday of a water leak coming down from the ceiling to the floor by the sink. It got progressively worse during the week, constant complaints, they tore our the ceiling panels 2x while we were occupying the room and the leak continued. It was so bad - see pictures - we had to move out of the closet area entirely and live out of our suitcases. FINALLY on Thursday they offered us another room. We explained we were going on a 12 hour bus tour on Friday and leaving on Saturday and moving would not help at this point after dealing with it all week. We tried several times to speak to the GM but only got 2nd in command. After that we were offered free wifi - what for one day? Massage free - when? We were going to be out all day on Friday and then offered dinner by the sea. Again we were not getting back till 9:00 pm on Friday,.We did request a room comp for 5 nights (not 7 that we were there, nor any part of the meal plan with the all inclusive, just room) and got no where.Apparently we found out that after the renovations there were leaks in our quad unit building. No way should we have been put in that room knowing that until resolved and as early as Monday be offered another room. We also should not have been inconvenienced with workmen in the room on 2 different occasions.Again, fabulous staff, food and service but beyond poor in acknowledgement of guest needs on the part of senior management.

Wonderful resort!

My first visit to Mexico and Allegro Playacar made me want to go back soon! I have never shared on Trip Advisor previously but I had to share this trip. The resort staff was 100% friendly and everyone worked so hard to make my trip great. My room was super clean and comfortable. The internet worked great, although my VZ phone was included in my domestic plan, I learned once I arrived. The cell phone coverage was great. The food was very good, and the hours provided were excellent. The bar staff was excellent and it was never a wait for a cold drink. The activities staff were great, always friendly and leading fun activities. The resort also provided nighttime live entertainment each night I was there, and one afternoon by the pool. I particularly like the Michael Jackson tribute dance group! It was very easy to do things outside the resort - we met a fishing boat on the beach, as well Jet skied. Downtown Playa del Carmen was a short cab ride and is a great place to shop and eat. I did not have my family on this trip but would not hesitate to take them here as I saw many families, and they were welcome in all areas of the resort. There was also a kids club with very involved counselors. Thank you Allegro Playacar and Mexico for a great vacation, wish I could have stayed longer!
