Fiesta Banana Hotel
Property information by Wcities, Inc
This hotel is located in the northern zone of Playa del Carmen and is 10 minutes away from the most beautiful beach in the Mayan Riviera. The Mexican-style rooms include air-conditioning, private bathrooms and a terrace with a view. It is also in close proximity to the Chichen Itza site of Mayan ruins, Isla Mujeres- for snorkeling and Nohoch jungle crossing tour. In addition, there is an indoor swimming pool, a library and a restaurant.
Do not stay here. The desk clerks will insult you and try to get every penny in "extra fees". Beware of using any credit card or source where they can take money from you without your consent! The hotel says that it is a three star hotel with luxury services, this is a flat lie! It is barely above a hostel, noise all the time, utilities do not work, the "pool" is in reality a fountain sized kiddie pool. If you want to be insulted, lied to, and treated like vagrants this is the right place to stay at.
For your own sake do not ruin your vacation by staying at Hotel Banana.
Very Clean and safe !!!
They have a nice staff, very kind with us.
Great position on the 5th Avenue in the quite part of Playa , close to the best beach. They offered us a special admission discount!!
The restaurant, recently opened, is very good with Mexican and Italian food.

We loved Fiesta Banana!!
The people were very nice, rooms very clean.
A/C was working fine and the location is great beacuse is super quite and close to the downtown.
The beach is two minutes walking and very clean and organized with restaurants and bars.
They have wireless connection too.
Special regards to Matteo
If you're looking for a great deal at the end of Avenieda Cinco, Fiesta Banana is the best deal around! Rates as of April, 2005 were running about 470 peso ($47.00 US)per day. Located at the end (read: quiet section) of the busy downtown Fifth Avenue, Fiesta is centrally located and perfect for a walking vacation (forget renting a car). It is close to all the action and the beaches, but quiet enough to maintain one's sanity. It is a small hotel, with only 23 rooms. The rooms themselves are sparse; no television (a good thing!), lots of closet space, no real views to speak of, and very very clean (thanks to the creative and wonderful maids, who also do amazing clean-towel art). Be sure to ask for a room on the very top floor (they are the best). There is a second story, open air patio with a television, tables and chairs and couches. This is a great space to hang out in and read or write after a siesta or a long day at the beach. Upon arrival at Fiesta Banana, I immediately searched for the balcony room that was shown on the website---don't bother; it doesn't exist! There is a small wading-type indoor pool on the first floor and a small restaurant on-site that has odd hours. But, not to worry. Again, you are situated on the main street of Playa and close to everything, including an early morning expresso place about a quarter of a block from Fiesta's front door.
Fiesta Banana is owned by a wonderful Italian family. Front desk staff Matteo, Ricky, Gianna and even "Mama", the guardian angel of the patio water cooler, are kind, courteous and extremely helpful. They appear to be gay, lesbian and family friendly as well. Nice place, perfectly functional as a place to sleep, shower, and rest while you explore the wonders of this hip vacation paradise.
With its tropical setting and color scheme, Real Playa del Carmen beautifully captures the essence of a laid back vacation.
The property amenities include four restaurants, six bars, a pool with separate kids section, Kids playground area, a tranquil ...
