Hotel Las Golondrinas Hotel 3 star

Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Amy Adejokun Section editor

Next to Fifth avenue in Playa del Carmen, Las Golondrinas is a small, nicely decorated family hotel. As it offers few services, this posada is an ideal pied-a-terre where you can simply enjoy the lively sea resort, famous for its beaches and shopping facilities.

    Location 9.71 /10

    Next to the large supermarket, the hotel is located close to the famous Fifth Avenue in the heart of the city of Playa del Carmen with its boutiques, bars, restaurants and exciting night life. It is itself located 33 mi from Cancun international airport. Allow almost an hour for the transfer by shuttle!

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    Bright and colourful, the 51 rooms of the hotel (including 38 with twin beds and 3 suites) each have a capacity of 4 people. All the rooms have a surface area exceeding 323 sq ft. They overlook the patio and vegetation on one side and the noisy street on the other. The walls are painted apple green and yellow. The mirrors and headrests are made of ceramic and terracotta. In each room, guests will find stiff bedding, a solid wood table, a TV with 40 channels, a free safe, individual air-conditioning (which has been used a lot!) combined with a fan on the ceiling, and a telephone. It is obvious that the decoration has been carefully considered, something that we don't doubt in Mexico of all places! On the floor, the whiteness of the tiles shows how clean the place is. Orange and cream, the bathrooms are small and equipped with the strict minimum: a shower, a hair-dryer and very few hospitality products.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Las Golondrinas was built in 1998 in the colonial style. From the outside, you cannot begin to guess the length of this yellow and green painted rectangular building. Compared to the size of the hotel, which was renovated in May 2007, the entrance hall beyond the beautiful ceramic fountain seems huge. Right from the small lobby there is a long patio. A stone statue invites you to enter this pleasant area with thriving vegetation. Beyond this is a long and small swimming pool. The 51 rooms are distributed on either side and they can be pleasantly and easily accessed via the open-air staircases.

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    This hotel only serves a simple breakfast to all its guests from 7:00 am to 10:30 am. The restaurant is a very small area with a view of the road and the reception thanks to patio doors on either side. The wooden high back chairs are decorated with flowers painted in a naïve style. Remember, however, that the little bar that you can see is only open for breakfast (continental). Luckily, in the town of Playa del Carmen you will find a wide choice of meals for lunch and dinner.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    On exiting the hotel, walk in a straight line along the 984 ft which separate you from the great public beach of Playa del Carmen. On your way, you will cut across the famous Fifth Avenue. Once you have set foot on the white and fine sand and reached the turquoise water, turn left and look no further for "Playa Mamitas Club". Here, the hotel guests benefit from personal service and 50% reduction on deckchair rentals (well spaced out) and palapa parasols. Everybody meets up at the beach to have a drink in one of the many bars or a meal in the restaurants, which often belong to the hotels along the seafront. A few metres apart from one another, the water sports clubs offer passers-by all sorts of possible unimaginable activities. In short, entertainment and activities are available here. The beach is supervised by life guards. Be careful: some seaweed may cover the sand, and jellyfish season goes from March to May.

    To know

    The hotel's guests are often couples, half are French, the other half Italian.

        "Las Golondrinas" comme son nom l'indique, accueille les migrateurs. Auvent intimiste, jungle luxuriante entourant la piscine centrale ou vastes chambres coloniales, l'hôtel a de nombreux charmes à partager. Le mieux encore, est de s'installer sur l'une des banquettes exotiques du Hall, l'oeil vagabondant sur ses pièces de collection, un verre à la main. Chac Mool lui même l'a bien compris, et à l'entrée du patio, le dieu allongé nous invite à déposer notre coeur dans cet hôtel envo

      • Advantages

        Sa situation à 300m des plages de Playa del Carmen et de la rue V.I.P est très recherchée. Les détails comptent à Las Golondrinas, que ce soit la tête de lit ouvragée, le ventilateur ou le shampoing à la coco, tout est ?uvré pour se sentir

      • Disavantages

        La carte du restaurant est un peu légère. Les chambres, très grandes, ont toutes minima deux lits, ce qui peut être déroutant quand on voyage seul(e). A déconseiller donc aux personnes ayant besoin de sentir la présence d'autrui.
