  • An Excellent Beach Hotel in Playa del Carmen

    Playa Palms Beachfront Boutique hotel is a smart, stylish and serene alternative to the all-inclusive resorts of Playa del Carmen. Located right on the the beach, only a 5-minute walk away from the trendy shops, restaurants and nightlife of 5th Avenue, Playa Palms hotel boasts a prime location and great ocean views.

    Wherever you look, you’ll find subtle marine connections – the shell-shaped room, the hammocks that look like fishing nets, and even fishing boats anchored in front of the hotel.

    Playa Palms’ suites are a step up from the standard rooms of other Playa del Carmen hotels. All suites are air-conditioned and come with a private kitchenette (except for the Garden View Studios), noise-proof windows, a queen size bed, a day bed for an additional guest, and a modern bathroom. Naturally, each suite is also equipped with satellite TV, ceiling fans and Wi-Fi internet.

    A variety of ocean front suites to choose from

    Ocean View Studios are the most popular option amongst Playa Palms returning clients. They are slightly cheaper than the Ocean Front Studios but you can still see the Caribbean (unlike the Garden View Studios).

    Ocean Front Studios are perfect for romantic couples, who want to pamper themselves with awe-inspiring, unobstructed views of the Caribbean. While the One Bedroom Suites would be a better option for families of 4, as they are bigger and come with a separate living room. (See the Amenities section for more details)

    Large private terraces and patios – a must for every hotel suite – are truly private oases of peace and relaxation. This is where you’ll probably have your breakfast or where you’ll chill in a hammock admiring the view of the serpentine pool and the Caribbean.

    Revel in the outdoor amenities and beachside service

    The beachfront pool that snakes through the courtyard is great for a quick dip to cool off. As for sunbathing and chilling, the best place for this is the beach. Numerous private loungers, beach chairs and shade umbrellas are reserved for Playa Palms hotel guests only. This seems like a minor thing, but knowing that you don’t have to worry about waking up at 7 a.m. and rushing downstairs to claim your sun lounger, actually makes a BIG difference in the quality of your vacation.

    What’s more, you can actually order lunch or drinks from one of the waiters on the beach (not affiliated with Playa Palms) and have it delivered right to your lounge chair!

    There are many little things about Playa Palms beachfront hotel that are worth an extra star: great location, cordial service, complimentary breakfast delivered right to your door and those sweet siesta naps on the beach.

    Say ‘yes’ to an amazing Riviera Maya vacation by adding Playa Palms to your inquiry. It only takes a minute!
