Hotel Suggestions Por Favor
We are a thirty-something couple looking for some all-inclusive hotel suggestions for Playa Del Carmen. Hoping for the following:
- Fun hotel. Should be full of activities that people actually join. Lots of volleyball etc. Great Entertainment crew. We prefer a lively atmosphere over a quiet, mellow one but not looking for the 19 year olds party hotel.
- location on the beach, not off of it. Prefer walking distance to Playa del Carmen's shopping/restaurants/bars.
- clean, decent food, friendly staff.
If you have stayed at a place that sounds like this, please leave some suggestions or links to other posts that are similar.

If you want to be within walking distance to Playa del Carmen, you're limited to hotels IN Playa or in Playacar. Playacar is generally walkable to town, although some hotels can be a bit of a hike and many people do take a taxi ($7/one way), especially at night.
Hotels you may want to check into are:
Royal in Playa del Carmen (adults only)
Gran Porto Real
Both of these hotels are IN Playa del Carmen, you can't get any closer.
Playacar Palace - is as close to Playa as you can get and be in Playacar, but I would say this hotel might be a bit more reserved, because it's very small.
Riu Palace (there are two - Palace Mexico and Palace Riviera Maya)
Budget will come into play too - some hotels will be more expensive than others. There are more too, but these are my suggestions.
