"The DL is one of those places you want to keep to yourself. Our villa was like a hut in mid air, and was a cozy home away from home. The yoga platform is a great chill spot that sets the tone for this unique little spot. Briana is an amazing hostess, providing round the clock care, and helping you know the real local scene. You’ll have to learn about the bar on your own, which is a fun scene in its own right. The DL keeps getting better and better!"

"This place is special. There is nothing like it in PM. The room was adorable, the beach was beautiful and the pool was perfect for nighttime dips. There is a large palapa for yoga and respite from the sun. There is also charming little beach bar with an amazing staff. This place is what really set the property over the edge for me, the guys who run the bar are so great. They have you feeling like family as soon as you sit down".

"The Diving Lodge Downtown was perfect in every way. Briana and Patrick were amazing hosts and made me feel so welcome as a solo traveler. Their staff is remarkable and joyful. I am already planning my next trip back."

"This place is amazing! We couldn't have had a more perfect start to our adventure. The photos don't do it justice, it really is an absolute gem. All the creative details in the construction of the place are incredible. We were invited to have tacos with Isabel and Luis on two occasions, and were made to feel like family. The snorkeling is incredible, we saw turtles! There's just so much to recommend, and I'm very worried that once word gets out, it's going to be impossible to get a reservation!"

"We've been coming to Puerto Morelos for years and didn't think there were many more new ways to experience it....could not have been more incorrect! We needed a small spot for a quick get-away without the kids and stumbled across Briana's place. True paradise! We stayed in the Palapa suite and soaked in every minute of this lovely property. Every staff member was gracious and friendly. Best location in PM."

"What a gorgeous vacation! After vacationing in Playa del Carmen the last 14+ years, hubby and I were looking for a quieter, smaller vacation spot. This is it! From the moment we arrived at The DLD, everything was easy and perfect."

"Best little secret in PM -- not for long. What a Gem. Right on the beach, wonderful location and real charm. Hosts are so friendly and just loved it. Paradise feel with nice amenities, clean rooms, super hot showers, chilled and organized. Yoga every day and if you dive, then jump on boat right there, wonderful bar right on site! Best spot in PM. Although I hope it stays the same and does not get discovered as I want to come back and have it available. Feel it will become very popular and booked up far in advance."
