Freshman Here!

I have been to playa a few times now. The first couple times I was with my parents and we stayed in Cancun, but would drive in to playa. Once we realized how amazing playa was, we started staying at the Royal Haciendas. My boyfriend and I took our first trip together last August and stayed at the Royal Haciendas, but it had recently went all inclusive and we kind of hated it. We ended up coming into town every night for food! We commented every night about how next time we would definitely be staying IN TOWN. So here I am. We are coming in August again this year and are looking at La Pasion, Hotel Adventura, Luna Blue and Hotel Lunata. All look lovely on trip advisor. I have already attempted using the search function to find some reviews by you guys, but haven't been overly successful. Can anyone shed some light on these hotels, their locations, cleanliness, closeness to town and the beach, etc. Take it easy on me please

i've stayed at Aventura Mexicana and Luna Blue. both great hotels with small pools. rooms at both have been very clean. short walk from either one to the beach. you will get beach passes and towels from each of the hotel. Aventura Mexicana has a great little restaurant/bar on site. Luna Blue has a cool bar on site. don't think you could go wrong on either place.

Those are all good choices...nothing fancy, but you'll be well taken care of. We love staying on the north side of town where AM and LB are. Lots of eats all around the area.......right next door to Luna Blue is Be Playa....a little more money I think. Very funky cool young person vibe, with a roof top shallow long pool. We liked it too, and they have free bikes to ride around on anytime you want. Big plus for us!
