The Best Pools in Riviera Maya and Why

We’ve all heard about the numerous benefits of vacationing by the sea. Stress relief, improved sleep, and plenty of vitamin D are some of the most immediate and commonly known benefits of spending time by the ocean.

Of course, sometimes strong winds, sargasso or even little ones who don’t like the sand can keep you from enjoying your vacations on the beach.

Luckily, we found these amazing beachfront villas with pools so cool you might forget the Caribbean is right in front of you. Here are five villas ready and waiting for you on your next trip to Mexico.

Casa Maeva

This four-bedroom villa is located on one of the most scenic and tranquil parts of Playacar Beach — Playa del Carmen’s most exclusive residential gated communities just a short stroll 5th Avenue. Casa Maeva has a beautiful swimming pool that can be accessed from all bedrooms, a heated rooftop jacuzzi and it’s very own private palapa and a beach bar just for you.

Sleeps up to 8 starting at $593 USD per night

Punta Roca Al Cielo Penthouse

The Rock House
