Banyan Tree Mayakoba

Just as spectacular as all Banyan Tree properties, this one definitely does not disappoint and is the first Banyan Tree to open in the western hemisphere. Located inside Mayakoba, the moment you drive up to the spectacular entrance and huge two-story lobby situated around a giant Banyan Tree in the canal, you know you have arrived somewhere special. The room options start at “standard” individual pool villas (which are really anything but) and go all the way up to three-story three-bedroom private villas. All of the rooms here are spectacular, boasting a comfortable and beautiful design aesthetic. Every room also comes with free bicycles, should you choose to forgo the golf carts and boats that are always ready to take you around the property. Which brings us to an important point: The service is really where Banyan Tree stands out; with origins in Thailand, the level of attendance exhibited at every turn is truly beyond fantastic! All of the restaurants located on-site are truly wonderful, with Saffron, the signature Thai restaurant at Banyan Tree Mayakoba - offering a really special night out. There is something for everyone here, including four restaurants, a dining boat option and two bars. The Spa is also not to be missed, with all treatments performed in individual villas and most therapists hailing directly from Thailand, they truly are the best in the Playa del Carmen area. And of course, the entire property is situated on a beautiful stretch of beach located just north of town, offering full beach service and insanely comfortable beach lounging. There is a kids club on property if you want to bring the children along.

Rosewood Mayakoba

Set amidst the beautiful jungle and complete with an extensive system of interconnecting lagoons and canals that are used to transport guests around the property via boat, the Rosewood is another luxury property found inside Mayakoba on a gorgeous quiet beach about 10 minutes north of Playa del Carmen. All of the stunning rooms and suites are either situated right on the lagoons and come with private boat docks for transport around the property, or they are beachfront. The quiet luxury is achieved with great attention to detail in a warm palate of neutrals highlighted by the technicolor beauty of the natural world outside. Most rooms have private plunge pools and all of them include butler service, so rest assured your every need will be taken care of to perfection. Rooms range from individual suites all the way to a three-bedroom three-story house complete with five full time dedicated staff members, including a chef and private boat captain, as well as a private golf cart and private boat tours with the resort biologist. Rosewood Mayakoba has three restaurants that will keep your palate satisfied, including an Italian-skewed option, a beachfront option and even a sushi and tequila bar option. The spa is also not to be missed if you enjoy being pampered and made to feel fabulous, where guests can come and go as they please from the common areas inside. Rosewood has a kids program called Rose Buds that is truly made to delight your children with many kid centric amenities and activities such as scavenger hunts, pizza and cookie making classes, pirate nights, pajama parties, mayan storytelling and much more. The staff is meticulous about personal preferences and attention to details that are designed to surprise and delight you. In our opinion, that alone makes the hefty price tag totally worth it!

Viceroy

Guests get to enjoy a scenic drive through what seems a bit off the beaten path to arrive at the Viceroy, which lies just north of Playa proper. But the quiet and unassuming entrance belies what lies inside. With just 41 villas, this property is within range of Playa’s smaller boutique hotels and its service definitely stands up to that principle, with very attentive, helpful, personal attendance in all aspects of your stay. Each of the villas are very private, and I mean very; with private patios and each with its own private plunge pool, you can choose from jungle and garden locations, all the way to beachfront. The decor is luxury-rustic, reminiscent a bit of Tulum but in a very high-end polished type of way. Think, polished white cement floors, complemented by warm wood tones, natural stone and Egyptian cotton sheets. The Viceroy is a quiet resort (no one under 14 years old is allowed) and is perfect if you really want to get away from it all with someone special and relax. The food at both of the on-site restaurants is always very fresh and inventive, as are the cocktails and impressive list of wines. Their “jungle spa” is fantastic as well, offering excellent therapists and soothing decor. Hint: They even offer the traditional Mayan Temazcal!
