This was our fifth time staying here and prior to this stay< we experienced no issues.. However, this time we had some issues with the rooms: water leaking from above and no AC.. The staff did their very best to rectify the problems.. we were upgraded to a suite. We feel the staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. I would return.

the bed was very uncomfortable , the waiter service at the restaurants was poor, the food was not good there was time when the chicken was under cooked and still raw. the kids club was not supervise the kids wsa allowed to leave without any staff knowing, there was no singed in and out forms for parents when they are dropping off their kids. I left some my daughter diamonds earing in my safe I called soon as I realize I did. every Time I called they would put me on hold and after while the would hung up. I literally called the resorts 10 time that day before I left the country

this was our third stay at this resort..we love the quietness of a smaller resort.. the food, service and staff are awesome.. the only complaint is there is not a gym or a workout facility on the property. a suggestion is to perhaps give a pass to use the neighboring gym at the royal hideaway.

This resort is clean and relaxing. The low key small scale of it makes it very appealing. If you want a relaxing vacation this is the place for it!!

We stayed at Allegra Playa Car in 2015. Since then there have been some updates, which were all very nice with the exception of the removal of the grass umbrellas on the beach. They were replaced with palm trees. We appreciated not being attacked by time share people. They now approach it as a vacation club, with much less aggression. The entertainment staff is not as good as back in 2015. The resorts in the area usually put on a nice super bowl evening. All the bars on 5th avenue were running the super bowl on an English speaking channel. They really dropped the ball on it this year. Victor chose to run the biggest night of American football in Spanish. All of the audience with the exception of about six people spoke English. During the commercials they would turn up the lights so you could not see the screen so Victor could play football trivia games with the audience. One time, they turned up the lights while the kicker was going for the extra point. Some of the entertainment staff were much friendlier than others. Some would not even make eye contact.

The wait-staff was excellent. The great ones remembered us from day-to-day. The beach was awesome!!! The front desk staff was not all that helpful. The "concierge" only wanted to sell us a timeshare. Our bathroom smelled like a sewer and the bath water came out brown each time we turned it on. There were certain areas of the grounds that always smelled like sewer and the public bathrooms were gross. The buffet was ok but we did not enjoy any of the restaurants. The entertainment was so-so; there was even a time when they stopped translating in English because there weren't enough Americans and Canadians in the audience. That was a little frustrating.

we had trouble with our room the first and second night. once we overcame the room issues the resort was great. I understand the resort had some remodeling done. the room I was in should not have been listed as available. The resort was able to find me a more accommodating room.

Facility was worn and dirty, swimming pools were filthy and had no filtration or water treatment, swim up bar was controlled by ignorant parents with toddlers sitting at the bar all day, the food service was poor quality, nothing like our previous trips to this area, witnessed a child pissing in pool after parent removed diaper, air conditioned spaces weren't air conditioned, entertainment was lousy, people overall not courteous at all, just a cheap resort overall, wouldn't recommend it to anyone!!!!!!!

bed bugs after being upgraded

My wife and I arrived at our hotel the lobby was very aged the marble countertop sticky and the particular person checking Us in someone unattentive. After checking in we went to our room very dark had a smell we took a look at the sheets and there was hair on the sheets and disdain. I went to the front desk complaint about this they were very apologetic he said we will upgrade you it will be the same kind of room only closer to the beach ok. The room in the condition of the room still not good stains on the tables on the floor we had twin beds this time one had hair when did not. I told my wife I would sleep on the air bed she could have the other. She needed to leave immediately however we could not make arrangements with Apple fo leave. During the three-day period my wife experienced a lot of bed bug bites we know these are bed bugs because they're not sand fleas and looking at the conditions of the mattress how healthy they looked under the sheets with the cheap foam cushion on top it was bed bugs not mosquitoes and gnats and fleas bed bugs we even looked it up online and there were some sample pictures that matched what my wife had exactly this was pretty much torture for her. On the fourth day we were able to speak to an Apple representative and make arrangements to get out of that place we transferred next door to the Royal Hideaway Hey sister Resorts of where we were staying. We did have to pay significantly for the upgrade but it was well worth the money it was good to leave where we were. As for the Royal Hideaway perfect. Donn ovshak Oklahoma City Oklahoma USA

Loved this resort in fact we went back two years in a row! Love the small resort feel, the people, food, beach etc. Too bad it was bought by Barcelo and they raised the prices so high! We were there December 2016 & December 2017 for 2 weeks.

Great Resort, Great Staff!

We had a wonderful stay at the Allegro! Everything was perfect except a problem with the air conditioner which was fixed by moving us to a much nicer room right by the relaxation pool.Thanks Cristina, you are the best !! Also if you are looking for a bargain this is it. We have stayed in 6 all-inclusive in Mexico and for the money this one can't be beat !

Fantastic family holiday

Just back from a 10 night all inclusive holiday to Allegro Playacar. First time visiting Mexico and we weren't disappointed. Staff were excellent, range of restaurants and food in the buffet was lovely. Excellent resort on the beach, day time entertainment was brilliant. Felt relaxed as not overcrowed, wildlife everywhere, coati, iguanas, agouti's, pelicans and woodpeckers etc. We loved it! We had a 21st birthday and another birthday whilst on holiday both had birthday cakes presented to them at the evening meals and the bedrooms had been decorated with baloons and a towel birthday cake! A lovely extra touch. The only thing I would say is that we had a superior double room which was a little small, with a sink in the room (not in the bathroom??) but very comfortable. We had an adjoining door in our room which wasn't very sound proof. We heard our neighbor snoring!! Would definitely go back

Worth every penny!

Wonderful resort for a great price! Beautiful beach front access, nice rooms (though the beds are hard), good food and drinks (they even accommodated my allergies), fun entertainment, basically this place has it all! Close enough to town for a short cab or 20 min walk. Will definitely be returning here sometime again!

40th birthday celebration!!

Thank you Allegro Playacar staff, for an amazing birthday celebration week!! We just returned yesterday from a week in the sun at this fantastic resort. I can't say enough about the service, food quality, cleanliness, attentiveness, and fun that we experienced. Entertainment staff were fun and kept us entertained - aqua gym, volleyball, pool games and the evening shows.. they had it all! Sad to have missed the foam party as we were leaving. Special shout out to Alejandro - so full of energy!! Food service and quality were top notch! This is the first time I've ever not booked a la carte reservations, as the buffet was ever-changing, themed, and had very tasty, flavourful food! Wait staff were very attentive and helpful. Special shout out to Anthony who brought special birthday shooters to me and my friends, and birthday cake!! Pool bar staff were second to none. We never had to get our own drinks.. they always ensured our cups were never empty! Special shout out to Manuel and Guadalupe - they truly made my celebration amazing! To the housekeeping staff who made me birthday cake towel art, the groundskeepers who repaired the thatch roof in the lobby/restaurant area after the one rainstorm we had, the friendly front desk staff, the luggage carriers and all of the others we encountered, thank you for a very memorable 40th birthday celebration!!! We'll be back!!
