A few weeks ago we asked our guests about their favorite spots in and around Playa del Carmen. This week we asked our staff at Hotel Playa Palms about their favorite spots, to share some insider tips with you.
“My favorite places to hang out are Blue Parrot Beach Club and Las Helodias. Blue Parrot because of the delicious food, and the bar Las Helodias for their nice atmosphere, good music and reasonable prizes.” Iván (Front Desk)
“By far my favorite place in this area is Isla Mujeres. The island is a little paradise with the most beautiful beaches, especially Playa Norte. In Playa del Carmen I like watching the sunset at Zenzi while enjoying a delicious Margarita and listening to good live music.” Carmen (Reservations Manager)
“When I go out with friends, we like to go to TNT Bar & Beer Store at Mamitas Beach. You always meet nice people there and they sell 5 liter beer kegs dispensers to share with your friends.” Jesús (Public Areas)
“My favorite beach in Playa del Carmen is Playacar. It’s not as crowded as other places and the beach is broader. For dinner, I like going to Cheester. They have the most delicious pasta at very reasonable prices. You need to bring a friend though, they serve huge portions you can’t finish alone!” Tania (Front Desk)
“I think my favorite place to go in Playa del Carmen is Playa Punta Esmeralda. It’s never as crowded as Mamita’s, and you can cool off in the little cenote there. And I like La Taberna, they serve delicious food and the best micheladas ever!” Teresa (Cleaning Service)
