    • Magical Recharge!

      Reviewed 08 September 2019

      I recently visited PPP looking for a little relaxing recharge from from the hustle and bustle of work. That is exactly what I found! From the moment I arrived, I was taken care of. From my amazing room, to the helpful staff who made great dinner and excursion suggestions. The location is near great shops and restaurants, be sure to take advantage of the all day bike rentals to get around. The property was so quiet while I was there which is exactly what I wanted, but I hear they have some amazing parties on the weekends! Food was excellent, Staff was amazing. Felt like family when I left. Absolutely a must see!

    • Beautiful Atmosphere, Not the Best Experience

      Reviewed 08 September 2019

      We had a not so stellar Airbnb that we decided to vacate early. We booked a night at the Papaya Playa Project in the hopes of turning our not so pleasant stay in Tulum into more of the relaxing beach stay we had hoped for. There were many ways this lived up to expectations: 1. The breakfast was excellent (the iced horchata is a must). 2. The ambiance was beautiful, surreal even. 3. The amenities where awesome. One pool was completely empty the whole time and looked out over the ocean. 4. The moon dance party was the epic beach party you have always imagined. As for the negatives: 1. The staff was kind but really disorganized. It took us a while to get checked in, and when we finally did and were relaxed in our room they messaged me to come back all the way to the check-in desk to pay for the full amount of the hotel, even though they had already taken my card for incidentals. Typically, I pay for hotels after my stay. Not before. Just odd. 2. The power went out for a few hours soon after we arrived. So the lights and AC were not working which was really uncomfortable. Their solution was to give us free breakfast which already came with the night stay... 3. The dinner was underwhelming. Below average in general. All in all not a bad place to stay. We just had higher expectations due to the location and prior reviews.

    • Excellent accommodations and guest experience!

      Reviewed 04 September 2019

      I had such a great stay at Papaya Playa Project. I took a huge, deep, relaxed breath upon arrival as I was warmly greeted, briefed on the property and stay and immediately shown to my accommodations. Which was STUNNING! I loved having the jungle views and beach vista. The pool on top was where I spent most of my time. Lucy at guest experience helped us organize a day with the whale sharks and made sure our accommodations were seamless. We had the best day with the sharks and so appreciated her help. What an experience!! I am already telling everyone I know about my trip and cant wait to come back!! I also cant rave enough about the cold brew and banana hot cakes. I wish I had that meal every day! Thanks for such hospitality.

    • Perfect for seclusion, service, and Saturday night!

      I stayed in a cabana on the ocean front which was perfect for what I needed. Sophia checked me in at guest experience and took care of everything from recommendations to service issues. When a storm came and the bathroom had started to fill with water, they moved me to a suite with it's own plunge pool. Super nice and even when I locked myself in the back by closing the door, I was able to WhatsApp back to Guest Exp. Sophia came and bailed me back out. Overall, if you give them feedback and let them know of the issues then they will take care of it. For Tulum, that is kind of expected because it is jungle/bohemian culture. Squeaky wheel gets the grease.
