TEFL Riviera Maya - CELTA Accommodation Options

Teaching House Riviera Maya offers students an unbeatable range of accommodation options in Playa del Carmen at very competitive prices. Our aim is to cater for all needs and the options include:


  • CELTA + Accommodation + Airport Pickup + breakfast $2,500


The majority of our CELTA course trainees stay at our new student residence in Playa del Carmen, where we offer special prices for those staying more than 27 nights (details below). It is located in the centre of Playa del Carmen, in a very quiet street, beside the town's main church and just two blocks (a 5-minute walk) from the school.

The ground floor has the reception area, an office, the kitchen and 5 bedrooms; there are a further 10 bedrooms on the first floor and the second floor has 6 bedrooms and four terraces. Laundry facilities and storage are housed in the basement. All 21 bedrooms have twin beds and each bedroom has its own private bathroom. Bedrooms also have a desk, a TV, ceiling fans and air-conditioning, as well as a small fridge.

Rooms can be booked for individual use or be shared with other students - but note that shared rooms are for couples and friends coming together.

You can choose between bed and breakfast and half board (evening meal), where meals are served in the school, not in the residence itself. If you prefer, you can have the "no meals" option, in which case you can use the fully-equipped kitchen in the residence. 



Per night (inclusive of 10% VAT), for stays of 27 or more nights:

·       Single room, no meals: 30 US$

·       Single room, with breakfast: 35 US$

·       Single room, with half board: 45 US$

·       Shared room, no meals: 20 US$ pp

·       Shared room, with breakfast: 25 US$ pp

·       Shared room, with half board: 35 US$ pp

We can provide fully-furnished self-catering apartments within walking distance of the school for those taking the CELTA course. Trainees can request a 1 or 2-bedroom apartment for their own, exclusive use, or you can request to have an apartment with some of our other students. In this case, you have you own bedroom but kitchen, bathroom and living space is shared.

Note that the other students you are sharing with may in fact be taking a Spanish course rather than a CELTA course.  The apartments are subject to availability.

Apartments (per night, inclusive of 10% VAT)

·       Single room in an apartment sharing with other students: 40 US$

·       Double room in shared apartment: 28 US$

·       Exclusive use of 1 bedroom furnished apartment: 70 US$
