How it Ranks: Banyan Tree Mayakoba ranks #4 out of 309 Playa del Carmen Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Mexico.
Our Take: Thanks to its secluded perch along Playa del Carmen's northern coast (away from the downtown hullabaloo) Banyan Tree Mayakoba can offer vacationers what it describes as "a harmonious blend of nature and luxury." Staying at this Asian-inspired resort affords guests easy access to the Riviera Maya's maze of mangrove forests, freshwater lagoons and, of course, the second-largest coral reef system in the world. Apart from communing with nature, guests can unwind in their villas, which feature Mayan-inspired décor, floor-to-ceiling windows and private pools. If you're not one to stay cooped up, Banyan Tree Mayakoba boasts a bevy of on-site facilities, including the Greg-Norman designed El Camaleón Golf Course, two pools and a spa that pampers with signature treatments like The Rainforest Indulgence hydrothermal therapy session. The resort's numerous dining facilities also earn praise, but for an unforgettable meal, book a seat aboard the romantic Ixchel dinner boat, which cruises through the scenic Mayakoba lagoon.
