Good location, on the main street 5th avenue just next to shops and restaurants. Hotel is basic clean and rooms are cleaned every day, but hotel seems to be pretty old. Clean linen and towels! 24h reception. Safety box in the room.A restaurant tip: Try a good local restaurant outside of the tourist area, really good grilled food, big portions and good price. Restaurants name is El Fugon and it's located in a corner of 30th avenue and 8th street, walking distance from hotel.

Everyone at The Yak was so friendly and helpful. All of the guests had much of the same mindset so it was a great place for single travelers. The bar was lovely and the hostel organised trips were really reasonable and fun too.

Hotel is always lock gated and extremely safe and secure. It is only a 5 minute walk to the beach, and cold beer and delicious tacos are 30 seconds away. Always friendly staff are on hand to supply any towels, information, or whatever you need with a smile. I have stayed here 4 times and quite frankly, I would rather rearrange my vacation schedule than stay anywhere else in Playa.

It was very clean and spacious. Having a kitchen was nice though I mainly used the refrigerator, as breakfast was included and I ate dinners out. It was quiet at night and hearing the birds in the morning was lovely. AC, a ceiling fan and clean towels every day were added pluses. Also, the homemade bread was delicious!!
