Two different hotels, one name: Blue Parrot. Located in the middle of the action in Playa del Carmen, with a unique and famous Blue Parrot Beach Club, these two Boutique Style hotels are very close to each other with different type of amenities, each one with its own charm.

BLUE PARROT 5TH AVENUE. Opened in July, 2005, the Blue Parrot Hotel 5th Avenue is the newest addition to the Blue Parrot family of unique boutique properties. Located at the epicenter of Playa del Carmen's hip and picturesque 5th Avenue, the newest boutique puts you steps from the best shopping, dining and clubbing that the town has to offer. Not to mention being just a short walk from the white sand beach of the Blue Parrot Beach Club. (VIP access included for all hotel guests!)The Blue Parrot Hotel 5th Avenue serves up contemporary style throughout seventeen cozy studios and one suite, all tucked away in a very private courtyard adjoining the restaurant Playasia. No pool.

BLUE PARROT SUITES. The Blue Parrot Suites--located about 50 meters from the beach--features 22 units in a variety of creative room configurations, including one and two bedrooms, deluxe and courtyard suites. Set in a lushly landscaped private courtyard and pool, the architecture of the Blue Parrot Suites follows the trendsetting lines of the original Blue Parrot Hotel, with the addition of larger, custom-designed interiors featuring Tommy Bahama furniture, Potter Barn bathrooms and fully appointed kitchenettes.

Way back in 1998, Newsweek magazine named the Blue Parrot Beach Club "one of the ten best bars in the world." Since then, things have only gotten better. As a hotel guest, there's one very important thing that you need to know about the Blue Parrot Beach Club; participation is optional. In other words, it is far enough away from the hotels that it won't disturb you--if you're not in the mood for nightlife. During the day, enjoy the beachfront lounge chairs complete with umbrellas and soak up the sun and sea while our daytime DJ guides you through a gentle sensual journey. There's no need to go anywhere else. We offer full service food and beverage from 7:30 AM. until 6:00 P.M.Come nightfall, the Beach Club undergoes a magical transformation as top international DJ's deliver an eclectic mix of music in three different environments. The beach dance floor tends to feature more pop and retro, while the Palapa Lounge offers the progressive dance mix that the Latin American and European customers tend to prefer. For a more relaxed chill out vibe, the palapa-covered sky bar offers dramatic overviews of the Caribbean and the beachfront dance floor.

Blue Parrot -- Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

I do NOT recommend the Blue Parrot Hotel. I booked a room at a hotel on the beach so I'd have access to chair and umbrella service, however, at the Blue Parrot they blast trance and club music at the beach, which gets progressively louder as the day goes on--not at all relaxing. I found out that many of the patrons had complained to the management about this, but management didn't care--they're more interested in attracting the party-goers willin to spend lots on alcohol--but there were none of these party-goers staying there. One day came back to my room at 4:30 and found that it still hadn't been cleaned--and they didn't seem nearly busy enough to warrant poor service.

Located in the heart of everything.

I stayed 5 days at the Blue Parrot 5th Ave, the staff were very courteous. I checked into the wrong hotel, the Blue Parrot Beach, and they kindly escorted me into their 5th Avenue hotel, both hotels are literally a couple hundred feet from each other. The staff would call the tour companies upon my request, to confirm my tours, and wake me up when I'm late for a tour (that happened twice), and when I ordered dinner from their beautiful restaurant downstairs, I'd go back upstairs to change and get ready for the night scene, and the staff would call me when my food was ready. Had a nice king sized bed, towels, bottled water, and soap are replaced daily and without me asking. A/C was strong, but shower was weak and would run out of hot water after prolonged use. I imagine that might become a nuisance to female guests. Also the room safe was broken, and there was a hole in the blinds so people outside could peek into the room. I stuffed a sock to plug the hole, problem solved. I don't let minor details like that get in the way of my vacation. Okay, it is extremely loud on the weekends, since both hotels are located within the vicinity of like a dozen bars and clubs, and the party goes til 5am, so unless you are here for the party and fun and don't plan to go to bed before 3am, you might want to check into a hotel that's a bit farther from the club scene. It's perfect for singles and friends that plan to do a lot of partying because the hotel is literally in the middle of everything. There are dozens of restaurants and shops spanning either direction as soon as you step outside the hotel, and I already mentioned the clubs. The beach is a 2 min walk, and free beach towels and lounge chairs come with your stay at the Blue Parrot. You also get free access to their club at night, everyone else has to pay like 15, 20 bucks to get in, so like I said, if you do a lot of partying like I did, this place is pretty awesome.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The exchange rate stands at 13.5 to 13.7 pesos to 1 dollar, so please, do not exchange your money at the currency exchange shops, where it's at best 11.7 to 1. Dollars are accepted everywhere too, but know that it's highway robbery, since the standard conversion on the street is 10 to 1, so don't use dollars to shop. Instead, go to an ATM that dispenses pesos, and you will get anywhere between 13.5 to 13.7 for your dollar. That's a 35% increase in the buying power of your dollar.
