Our beautiful residence is located in the center of Playa del Carmen, in a very quiet street, beside the town’s main church and just two blocks away (or a 5-minute walk) from the school.

All 22 bedrooms have twin beds and each bedroom has its own private bathroom. Bedrooms also have a desk, a TV, ceiling fans and air-conditioning, as well as a small fridge.

You can choose bed and breakfast or half board (which includes an evening meal). Note that all meals are served in the residence itself. If you prefer, you can have the “no meals” option, in which case you can use the fully-equipped kitchen in the residence to prepare your own meals.
