Our Kahlo property includes a community pool for all guests in addition to working space and charging stations to keep you connected wherever you choose to plug-in, even as you stay refreshed sunbathing by the pool beneath the stunning mural of Frida Kahlo.
Suites are quipped with modern kitchenettes and mini-fridges, beautiful city views, and plush king size beds to ensure the finest relaxation during your stay. No need to leave the bed to adjust the room temperature, as our heating and air units come with remotes, and the bathrooms are finished with top quality finishes.

Whether you’d like to unwind and watch your favorite shows on our high resolution flat screen television in bed, or make the meals that remind you of home, you can enjoy over 700 square feet doing everything you love in our studio suites. If you’re traveling with a companion, our suites are pet-friendly, too.

Indulge the Cravings

You will find a variety of restaurants close to home. Our property manager Adrien has selected the best spots for you.


  • Choux Choux cafe ~ located two blocks away on 20th ave and calle 24. Pet friendly and great atmosphere. French bakery & amazing breakfast or brunch.
  • La Ceiba de la 30 ~ Fresh juice and delicious Mexican food. A healthy option located steps away across the street on 30th in front of the DAC fruit market.
  • Nativo ~ Definitely recommended for their amazing mixtures of fresh fruit smoothies and delicious chilaquiles (you can pick red or green salsa). Right around the corner steps away as well on 30th.
  • Los Hijos del Mar ~ Located on 30th between 24th and 26th they are famous for their delicious selection of tostadas. Carribean gastropub with good prices.
  • El Fogon ~ Right around the corner on constituyentes. Famous for their tacos al pastor and “gringas”. Open from lunch all the way through late night.
  • Clorofila “Green and Vegan” ~ One of the favorites amongst feedback. Located one block away on 30th and 20th. Their smoothies are incredible.
  • Don Chendo ~ Chicago style deep dish and amazing pastas. The staff is amazing and they are located one block away on 30th and 24th street.

Dive into Adventure

Set in a vibrant neighborhood, our modern studio suites are within blocks of the beach (Playa Mamitas has the best beach clubs), within radius of the largest shopping center Quinta Avenida, and steps away from endless dining and nightlife options. Authentic Mexican cuisine, fresh juice bars, vegan-friendly options, farmer’s markets, convenience stores and more are all only footsteps away!

If you prefer action, in Playa del Carmen you will find water activities such as windsurfing, jet skis, kayaking or diving in the impressive Mayan coral reef. Great musicians of Mexican and international jazz offer concerts every year. The beauty of the beaches and the many activities that Playa del Carmen has for you will force you to come back.

A message
from Adrien

I am thrilled you are considering Playa del Carmen for your next vacation; it would be a joy to share with you this vibrant, bustling city I call home. Our property here is called Kahlo.

Frida Kahlo is the embodiment of Mexico’s spirit. Her art is a celebration of beauty and pain, struggles and dreams, and unending change — in other words, all it means to be human. Whatever your life currently holds, let us celebrate and express something beautiful here, together.

When I stroll down Calle 22 after the sun has set, I can close my eyes and listen to the pulse of music drifting from El Fogon around the corner. Above, the stars slowly shimmer into life. Some are radiant and blinding; others subtle and muted; some form constellations and some shine alone. Night after night, they are all beautiful. Below, in the city, we are the same.

Whatever you wish for your vacation, I cannot wait to recommend some possibilities that I love. A freshly-squeezed juice from La Ceiba de la 30 in the morning. A trip to the renowned Xplor adventure park. An excursion to Tulum, or water activities like diving, kayaking, and jet skis. If you prefer to choose your own adventure, you are not the first of the pioneers who make their own path. You’re in good company.

There is nothing more precious on this earth than our time; thank you for yours. And thank you for thinking about spending it with us.

With love, Adrien
