  • Great Location and Serenity in Playa del Carmen south of Cancun

    Big hotels and beachfront resorts are often accused of being too sheltered from the real culture and traditions of where they are located. Hotel Las Palapas proves them wrong.

    Strategically situated right on the vanilla-colored sands of Playa del Carmen, overlooking the turquoise sea, Hotel la Palapas is as close as it gets to an authentic Caribbean vacation. 75% of the property has been kept in its natural state, meaning that a large portion of the resort’s property boasts exuberant vegetation and creates a tranquil sanctuary just a few minutes from the Playa del Carmen’s vibrant 5th Avenue (or as locals call it “La Quinta”).

    Beautiful mix of jungle and ocean on a Riviera Maya beach

    Even during the high season, Hotel Las Palapas feels secluded and serene. There are numerous beautiful palapa-roof Bungalows scattered throughout the property and a large selection of tranquil garden-view accommodations.

    The 3 Beach Front and 5 Ocean View Bungalows are the best accommodations from which to enjoy the view of the Caribbean and fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping on the shore. Although, the upbeat music, coming from Las Palapas famous next-door neighbor – Mamitas Beach Club & Lounge – could either add some fun or take away from the tranquility of the place. If you prefer quiet serenity over the Caribbean beat then the garden view rooms, tucked farther into the jungle, could be the best alternative for you.

    All rooms of the Hotel La Palapa are equally comfortable. All are air-conditioned and furnished with either a king-size bed or two double beds. There are also ceiling fans, en-suite bathrooms, safety-deposit boxes and private terraces with hammocks.

    Lots of extras to make your stay easy and enjoyable in ’Playa’

    Hotel Las Palapas also offers a complimentary breakfast buffet and a free Wi-Fi internet service. With 2 great on-site restaurants, offering delicious international and Mexican specialties and the freshest seafood, it is worth having your lunch and dinner here as well.

    A long list of fun and relaxing things to do and see during your stay at Playa del Carmen should definitely include lounging by the pool, taking a stroll along the beach with your loved one, snorkeling, diving, golfing, horse riding, exploring the nearby cities or visiting Riviera Maya’s eco-parks.
