Our Opinion

A great resort for anyone on budget. The staff is the most notable with this resort, with their friendly and attentive service. The facilities are in need of a little upgrade. The food options are a little limited. However this would be a great resort for those who would still like to experience the Riviera Maya while on a budget.

Real Playa del Carmen

This laid-back hotel, formerly known as Club Bananas is the ideal spot for those wishing to explore the area. Located in the quaint village of Playa del Carmen (where the ferry crosses to Cozumel Island), Real Playa Carmen is within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Enjoy the lively daily activities program and a complimentary shuttle to the hotel's own Beach Club at the nearby Gran Porto Real hotel.

Location: 5 minutes from the beach, 5 minutes to Playa del Carmen, 45 minutes from the airport.
