    Crown Paradise Hotel

    Hi all, I'm booked for a quick vacation in February to stay at the Crown Paradise Hotel. Does anyone know how this hotel is doing or has anyone stayed there in the not too distant past. Any information would be helpful. Thanks...Jaki

    Recent review ....Just got back from Cancun 2/24/06-03/03/06

    Dos Playas is fine for the economy minded traveler. It has a nice beach area. The food is mediocre but edible. The booze is just fine.
    I was suprised at the room size( we went with another couple and their room was much smaller) perhaps it was a reward for walking up and down the stairs to the 3rd floor. (no elevators) They don't provide bottled water even though they say "we don't reccomend you drink the tap water"
    There is a water cooler at the restaurant that you can refill the water bottles you buy. Bring an alarm clock (none in room) no ironing boards available. ( We brought a travel iron, they only have one iron for the entire hotel) Fat Tuesdays is right next door but if you are over 25 you'll feel out of place. Not enough beach chairs or umbrellas foer guests.(You have to get up before sunrise and stake you claim with beach towels to get a good spot. The cleanliness of the bar is questionable (saw the bar tender washing and reusing drinking straws) :lol: :( Cancun is a beautiful place and we will most likely visit again, but probably not at Dos Playas. It is a 1 1/2 star facility at best but it did the trick this time. You get what you pay for.

    any pics?

    Does anyone have any current pictures of Dos Playas? I have read mixed reviews about the place, but I really think it will be ok. Also, any suggestions on which building or room to stay in? We are going May 20th to May 24th.

    Thanks!

    Dos Playas 24 Feb 06 - 3 Mar 06

    If this link works then there are a couple recent photos of Dos Playas.
    Keep in mind that you get what you pay for, if you want a 4 star hotel you'll have to pay probably twice or more than you are paying for DP.
    If you are more concerned with the beaches and other activities in Cancun and are looking for a place to eat free(drink free too!) and sleep
    then DP is not that bad. As for buildings We had one which a had view of the laggon/bay and the ocean, but it was on the 3rd floor with no elevators.Definetly get an ocean view room.
    Enjoy your trip, we really did.

    Can anyone tell me what kind of alcohol they serve. Is it mystery draft beer or can you get actual bottles? Thanks!

    Hey we're staying here in february and I was wondering if anyone has been lately. This hotel was a lot cheaper than anything else and I'm wondering why. On TripAdvisor it doesn't have bad ratings at all. What is the dealio here?
