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

We visited the Allegro Playacar again in July/August 2017, the exact same weeks from last year.We chose the Allegro as we wanted to see the improvements made by Barceló.The rooms have been greatly improved and no longer have a dated feel. We had rooms 2402 -2403 which was a connecting room for our family of five and it provides plenty of room.Food: This seems to have improved ten fold from last year in all locations from the Buffet in the main restaurant to the buffet in by the pool for lunch time.Our kids particularly like the lunch buffet as it serves great burgers and hot dogs along with an array of other dishes, it was also pleasing to see that the clothing and footwear rule was being enforced during this service.As for the la carte, I can only comment on the Mexican, this was fantastic... the food and service was great on both occasions that we eat in there the staff who work in the Mexican in the evening are great fun.As for last year this year was no different in terms of how friendly the staff are... they go out of there way to make your stay special and work extremely hard.Again we must say a big thank you to Alex and Humberto.... these guys are a credit to the resort!! The provision of shaded areas around the pool is again a great improvement and hopefully in time the trees on the beach will grow to provide adequate shaded areas also but for now just go careful if having a beach day!!The timeshare guys are still there... not as full on as last year which is good. My only major negative for this place is the cost of wifi,,,$45 for 7 days for 2 devices.....I believe if you book through Barceló and become a member you get it for free.Overall for the price of this hotel you really cant go wrong.... the beach is beautiful, it is set in beautiful grounds with amazing this place.

Hotel was great, Barcelo, No

I liked the beach. The hotel was good. The staff was all very very polite. The whole thing with the forced meeting with the sales group was unnecessary. What was supposed to be 90 minutes became three hours. Having your salesperson grab my arm, twist it around to look at my tattoos was a major problem. Then to have her share sexual adventures of her life, unprofessional. And last, refusing to give back my "deposit" by giving me some cheap tequila, is just shocking. I'll make sure to avoid the Barcelo Group in the future.

Allegro Playacar for Franklin!

Great place, great people, you can't go wrong at this place. Some of the best food I've had anywhere! I did my PADI open water this summer and had to contend with Franklin stirring the water up! I got it done and will be back to Allegro Playacar to do some more diving next year at Cozumel. This is a gated community, very clean, very secure, and very fun!

Hospitality at its Best!!

This hotel should do ads and workshops for other companies on customer service. From the time we stepped foot on this property we were amazed. These are the nicest people on Earth. Nothing was too big or too small. The restaurants were good. This is a small boutique all inclusive with restaurants, four pools, three snack bars, very well done! The food was very good but the service was probably the best experience I've ever had and I traveled all over the world. The beach was amazing!
