    Thompson Playa del Carmen

    Playa del Carmen
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1216 reviewsTripAdvisor (1216)
    Free WiFi

    A boutique hot spot in the center of Playa del Carmen's nightlife, Thompson Playa del Carmen is a modern hotel that caters to vacationing couples and fun-loving singles. Its 30,000-square-foot rooftop is the highlight of the property, with an infinity pool and swim-up bar, private cabanas, gourmet Mexican cuisine and expansive ocean vistas. Guest rooms and suites boast mid-century decor with cocktail bars, king beds with custom linens, kimono-style robes, rain showers and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Travelers also have the option to book one of the 27 guest rooms and suites in the separate Thompson Beach House, all of which feature private beachfront terraces. The Beach House is located just two blocks from the main hotel and guests receive full access to the hotel's amenities, including the fitness center, rooftop pool and two restaurants. The Beach House is also home to C-Grill, which serves craft cocktails and a Mediterranean-inspired menu. Recent guests recommend staying at the Beach House if you're looking for more a laid-back beach vibe; if you're more into the party scene, a room at the main hotel is where you should stay. You can find the main hotel located on Quinta Avenida in downtown Playa del Carmen, about 35 miles south of Cancun International Airport. Note: There is a daily $34.80 resort fee.

    If you're looking to relax and unwind while on vacation, consider a stay at Playa del Carmen's The Palm at Playa. This downtown boutique hotel  located just a block from the beach  features a spa, complimentary yoga classes, a Jacuzzi and a pool, all of which are sure to help you de-stress. And should you require a bit more activity, you can break a sweat in the property's gym or arrange a dive through Reef Quest Divers (situated just four blocks away). After working up an appetite, grab a bite at one of Playa del Carmen's restaurants and bars, many of which are located within walking distance of the hotel. According to recent guests, the property's excellent location more than makes up for the lack of on-site dining options. However, The Palm at Playa does offer complimentary breakfast (although it receives mixed reviews). And once you're ready to bed down, retreat to one of 69 lofts and suites, which include free Wi-Fi access, coffee makers, plasma TVs and glass-enclosed showers. For the ultimate peace and quiet, travelers recommend requesting a room toward the back of the hotel. Just keep in mind, though, that you'll be paying a $5 daily resort fee when staying here.

    Acanto Boutique Hotel & Condominiums

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 984 reviewsTripAdvisor (984)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Acanto Boutique Hotel & Condominiums caters to larger groups and families with its collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom villas that are equipped with full kitchens and dining rooms. But that's not to say that solo travelers and couples won't enjoy their stay here; Acanto also features standard guest rooms that, like the villas, come equipped with plasma TVs, terraces or balconies, marble bathrooms and complimentary Wi-Fi. For most travelers, the Acanto's main draw is its location in central Playa del Carmen. The hotel sits within a few steps of the coastal town's vibrant shopping and dining areas, as well as the area's pristine beaches. Although this small property doesn't offer all the amenities of the area's larger resorts – for example, eateries nearby replace an on-site restaurant and fitness facilities are located off-site – Acanto does feature a pool and the on-site Maria Bonita SPA & Beauty Salon, and visitors can arrange diving and snorkeling excursions and expeditions to nearby archaeological sites through the concierge. Acanto also earns praise for its bright decor and gracious staff.

    Located in the heart of Playa del Carmen, Mexico, within a few blocks of the Blue Parrot beach club and La Quinta Avenida's shops and restaurants, Panama Jack Resorts Playa del Carmen places travelers just a few steps away from the city's picturesque beaches. Though the property's standard rooms and suites (which come with minibars, shared terraces and free Wi-Fi) do not face the ocean, most accommodations feature water views. For direct beach access and private beach cabanas, consider upgrading to a junior or master suite. Superb ocean vistas can also be enjoyed from the outdoor gazebo, where couples can tie the knot or enjoy a massage. As part of the resort's all-inclusive philosophy, visitors can enjoy an array of complimentary facilities and services, such as a miniature golf course; unlimited food and drinks at 12 restaurants, bars and lounges; two outdoor pools; kids and teens clubs; a sauna, steam room and whirlpool in the on-site spa; fitness classes like Zumba and water aerobics; wine and tequila tastings; and cooking demonstrations. Overall, prior guests loved staying here, citing the property's superb service and gourmet cuisine as reasons to return despite the beach's rocky surface and lack of space.

    Porto Playa Condo Hotel and Beach Club's downtown Playa del Carmen location combined with its spacious accommodations and ample on-site amenities is, for many Mexico vacationers, a recipe for a relaxing escape. Previous guests describe this condo-style property as ideal for group and family travelers: The hotel's 21 lofty accommodations feature one to four bedrooms, separate living spaces, flat-screen TVs and fully functioning kitchens. And those that splurge on penthouse digs will be rewarded with private rooftop terraces, outdoor kitchens and private Jacuzzis. When they're not sprawled along the sands at Porto Playa's Indigo Beach Club, visitors can lounge by one of the property's two heated swimming pools or indulge in a relaxing treatment at the on-site Maya Spa. Meanwhile, Porto Playa's in-house restaurant – as well as its deli and market – ensure that no guest leaves hungry.

    The Carmen Hotel sits in the heart of Playa del Carmen, Mexico, between La Quinta Avenida, where various shops and restaurants reside, and Playa del Carmen Beach. Though you'll be tempted to spend all your time exploring the area, previous visitors said this property offers ample reasons to linger on-site. Standout amenities include the rooftop bar and pool, which boast impressive Caribbean Sea vistas and DJ-curated music, and Keel Restaurant, a beachside eatery that dishes up tasty international cuisine made with fresh, local ingredients. Suites feature contemporary decor with blue, white and wood accents and open bathrooms. Each space also includes complimentary Wi-Fi access, a pillow-top mattress, a flat-screen TV and more. Recent guests praised this "outstanding" boutique hotel's "to die for" accommodations, citing the modern interiors, comfortable beds and top-notch views as highlights. But a few travelers grew tired of the rooftop's repetitive electronic music, while others bemoaned the $43 nightly lifestyle fee, which covers breakfast and in-suite Wi-Fi access.

    Described by previous guests as a "charming hacienda-style retreat" with a great location, this boutique hotel is situated in the heart of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Accommodations feature warm, earthy decor with pops of color in the rust-colored bedding and amber-hued floor tiles, plus coffee makers, TVs and minibars. Guests have their pick of a superior queen room, a double queen room or a junior suite with two queen-sized beds and a furnished terrace. The hotel is also home to a small pool that occupies the inner courtyard and is surrounded by a few lounge chairs and umbrellas. Aside from the pool and a restaurant that is only open for breakfast, there are not many on-site amenities. However, visitors can explore nearby shops and eateries or take a short two-block stroll to the beach. Travelers' opinions of the Hotel Hacienda Real del Caribe were mostly positive, with many noting the ideal location, comfortable beds and great service as highlights. Some did say, though, that the hotel's location in the heart of the city meant the surrounding streets got pretty noisy at night.

    Like its name suggests, this fashion-forward hotel in downtown Playa del Carmen certainly exudes a sense of style. Past guests highlight the In Fashion Hotel Boutique as the place to stay for those who prefer trendier digs. The hotel's 42 suites showcase artwork from Spanish painter Ivan Montero, along with decorative accents that add eye-catching pops of color.

Plus the hotel offers complimentary breakfast at its restaurant and features a sleek swimming pool. Previous visitors appreciate In Fashion's chic appearance, but what they can't stop talking about is the high level of customer service they were treated to here.
