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

Great time at the Allegro Playacar.

The resort was even better than our expectations. Room was more than adequate located only steps from the beach. Beach was spectacular with plenty of chairs and shady spots for relaxing. Service at bars was good and had a variety of drink options. Restaurants all had a good variety of food. our room was nice, everything worked as expected. We did see lots of rooms at the front of the resort getting renovated for the busy season. We had a great vacation at the Allegro Playacar.

2016 XCaret

We were supposed stay at the Allegro Playacar and were moved due to construction at the Playacar. The move went super smooth, we were met by Kinga and all of my guests were upgraded to the club building. XCaret as always is an awesome, beautiful resort. The only complaint is that the club hot tubs are not only hot (understandable) but the pumps never seem to work. Minor, Minor, issue all things considered. Entire staff is great and this is one of our favorite places to go

Loved it :)

We spent one week here as family and we loved it. Very positive for me was that it was not crowded, although most of the rooms were booked out, there was enough space for everyone, we never had problems finding free seets in the restaurant, free place at the swimming pool or on the beach. We prefer swimming in the sea, this hotel is great for that, the beach and sea is just in front of it, you can take long walks along the beach, aprox. 20 minutes walk from the hotel there is a nice place for snorkeling. Rooms had a great atmosphere (I advice a room upstairs with the straw roof), were comfortable and clean (every day a different animal from the towels was created - lovely), each room had a hammock to relax in. Staff was friendly and helpful, food was great. I loved watergym with our great animators Eric and Vincenzo, and zumba lessons on the beach. The garden was beautiful, taken care of regularly, our children loved watching different kinds of animals living there (lizards, squirels, racoons ...). Definitely recommend this hotel.

Another vacation at the allegro!!

We came back to the Allegro in August, our home away from home in Playacar. This would be our fifth time here, and this is our choice of resorts in the Mayan Riviera. We were a little afraid of what we were to find, as Barcelo has bought over the Occidental line, and we love the intimate feel of this resort, and would hate to see it change. There were renovations being done while we were there, but did not interfere with the vacation at all. The buffet was up and running, as was the daily entertainment, and bars...etc, so no complaints there. Check in was fast and friendly, we got the room we requested, and the charm and homey feeling we loved and still love was still there. We found some old staff that are still there, so it really felt like coming back home!!!! We were fortunate enough to get a preview of the new rooms, and we loved what we saw!!! The rooms have been updated with stylish accessories, but still has the charm that we, and many repeat customers love !!!!!!!! so, this will not be our last vacation at this resort!!! The beach is as beautiful as ever, and my daily ritual was a walk to the left, or to the right of the resort!!!! Awesome way to start the day!! Food was fantastic, breakfast , lunch, and dinner!! STAFF...... best people you will ever have the pleasure to deal with,,,, We notice that the resort vendors were no longer there in the evening, this was a little disappointing, as we look forward to them after dinner. I hope the Barcelo will be bringing them back after the renovations, as we missed Alejandro, our cigar man!!!! Bring him back !! We have fallen in love with the Allegro Playacar, and can't wait to come back and experience the new Barcelo...
