We had an absolute wonderful time at our Cabana at Shalala. We felt like were in the jungle, even though we were in town! This part of time was quiet and my tranqilo! Th bathroom was charming and open air. One morning my wife looked up and saw a monkey in a tree! Our host was very friendly, and he even lit candles around our cabana every night! Our favorite restaurant in Playa (Cueva del Chango) was only steps away. There were several restaurants within a very short distance. The beach is a very short 2 blocks away at the end of Calle 38! We would highly recommend this cabana!
Shalala is for sure one of the best places to stay at in Playa Del Carmen.
When you enter the place, you've right away peaceful and relax feeling. The owners from Shalala took good care of us and they had great sightseeing tips too.
It's really close to the beach (max. 5 min walk) and close to the city centre. If you ask me, you can have the best from both at this location. Also the restaurant Regina (next to shalala) has delicious Mexican food! We miss Shalala already!
Thanks for everything and hopefully we have the chance to visit this place again.
Our experience at the Shalala was brief but very enjoyable. Omar and his partner were very friendly and helpful. The place itself was great but for the temperamental wifi, and cold showers - but considering we were only staying a short time, these inconveniences were not of great concern and therefore or overall stay was one of fondness.
Shalala is amazing place right by the beach. When we first arrived and entered the property through big gates it seemed like we are in most charming tropical garden ever. Little touches like oriental furniture , lamps and fairy lights scattered around the area created amazing, chilled vibe. The host welcomed us on a very warm and professional manner showing us around and offering complimentary margaritas from nearby organic restaurant (which makes the best breakfast of all times). Accommodation was very clean, comfortable and arranged in high class style. Booking was a Xmas present and it was the best idea to choose Shalala as the experience was close to living in paradise!
The host was extremely nice. We were greeted by a warm, engaging employee for Shalala. She provided us with essentials for our stay (mosquito candles - which were a must for here after the rain!, a menu for their restaurant - which had the most delicious pancakes, etc.). We were able to meet a couple other employees over a two-night stay, and every person was super kind and welcoming (one even brought us late-night tacos to our room!).
The bedroom at Shalala was fine, but I kind of wish they had provided us with a mosquito curtain for the bed - it was needed there after the rain. For the bathroom: the shower was amazing - it was outdoors. The water - which was warm - for the shower came out of a bamboo shoot! The toilet area was a tad dirty and the toilet was hard to flush.
The location for Shalala was perfect! It was right off the main drag and close to the beach.
Overall, this is a great place to stay for the price!
We stayed at Shalala for our honeymoon 2 years ago and were glad to be back. We loved the shower downstairs, which gives you the feeling of an outdoor shower, but is enclosed for privacy. What a treat!Although we stayed in a different room last time, we were still very pleased with our stay this time around. This is a serene and beautiful natural setting, which allowed us to relax and enjoy. Thank you!

We are two laid back, friendly and educated guys living in Playa del Carmen for the last 6 years. We love to travel, spend time with our friends and meet new people. Playa del Carmen is the perfect place for that.
Riviera Maya is a great destination and we enjoy our time here going to the beach, visiting new places like ruins, trying new activities (do not hesitate to ask for any advice on what to do or where to go), hanging out with friends, having a drink in a cool bar ( you will find every kind of music and ambience in playa del carmen), ... our place is in the middle of all these options and is quite cool to enjoy it.
We recently got the unexpected opportunity to start our business in this unique place. Unique for its vegetation, its decoration, and the natural peaceful ambience. Managing and working here it is pure pleasure, we are professional of tourism and marketing, but we enjoy receiving people, looking forward of our guests, sharing about the fabulous Riviera Maya/Mexico and hear stories/experiences from all over the world.
well, if any details or info are missing do not hesitate to contact us, hope to see you soon
