    Jashita Hotel

    Former guests frequently used words like "peaceful," "heaven" and "beautiful" to describe Jashita Hotel, a boutique property in Soliman Bay. Situated about 9 miles north of Tulum, the hotel earned kudos from past lodgers for its manicured grounds, beachfront seat and tranquil atmosphere. Make the most of the hotel's location by kayaking, snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding or simply lounging by the pool, of which the resort boats two. When you're not taking in the bay views from the infinity pool, admire them from your digs, which feature wireless internet access, a welcome bottle of wine and chocolates, Italian bed linens and an iPod docking station, among other amenities. Or, if you really want to up the relaxation, indulge in a treatment at the spa. Aside from the location and the views, the restaurant was another highlight for past lodgers thanks to its delicious seafood dishes (specifically the lobster).

    Isla Mujeres Palace
    Isla Mujeres
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1521 reviewsTripAdvisor (1521)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    With an air of tropical romance and intimate surroundings, this couples-only resort on the southwestern coast of Isla Mujeres especially appeals to those in pursuit of a honeymoon or destination wedding retreat. What Isla Mujeres Palace lacks in size guests say it makes up for in personalized service. And while there are only 62 of them, each guest room comes with a private balcony, double Jacuzzi, minibar and flat-screen LCD TV. Your meals are covered by the all-inclusive cost, but there is only one restaurant, Azul. (Recent visitors, though, say the food is varied and delicious, so you probably won't get bored). But while the beach and pool are lovely, some guests can start to go a little stir-crazy without the constant excitement that Cancun's mainland hotels bring. However, if it's quiet seclusion you want, then Isla Mujeres Palace can deliver.

    The Palm at Playa

    4-star HOTEL CLASS

    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    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.

Once you've satiated your appetite, stake out a chair by one of the hotel's pools, or for a little extra pampering, spring for a massage at the spa.

    Be Tulum hotel has been described by recent travelers as everything from a "bohemian jungle paradise" to a "simplistically beautiful" property. The hotel's suites are decorated with natural materials and wood finishes, though a few guests noted the rooms were a bit dark. Each suite includes its own private plunge pool or Jacuzzi, complimentary Wi-Fi access and a sitting area. The property sits alongside a beach in Tulum, Mexico, so guests have direct access to the ocean, as well as lounge chairs, daybeds and thatched palapa coverings. Be Tulum also houses a spa and offers fee-based yoga and meditation classes. When it's time for a meal, guests can enjoy ceviche and fresh seafood at Maresias; sample tacos or freshly grilled lobster at 4 Fuegos; sit down for a dinner of small plates at Ocumare; or grab some casual drinks at the Beach Bar. As far as service goes, past visitors offered mixed reviews. Some described the hotel's employees as "friendly" and "helpful," while others said they would have appreciated more smiles from some staff members. You'll find the hotel about 6 miles south of Tulum's Mayan ruins by Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve's northern border.

    Acanto Boutique Hotel & Condominiums

    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.

    Le Rêve Hotel & Spa
    Playa del Carmen
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 936 reviewsTripAdvisor (936)
    Free Parking

    Situated roughly 5 miles north of central Playa del Carmen above powdery, white sands, Le Rêve's 28 suites attract travelers craving a quiet, intimate Riviera Maya escape. Recent guests caution that rooms come attached to high rates, but many agree that a stay here is well worth the price. Each suite comes appointed with rich wood furnishings, handmade Mexican tiles, oversized bathrooms with rainfall showers and balconies that overlook private gardens or the Caribbean Sea. The public areas are just as inviting: Le Rêve boasts an expansive infinity pool that flanks the Caribbean Sea. Guests can also appreciate the view while enjoying a yoga lesson or rejuvenating treatment at the spa. But many recent visitors say that the gourmet Mexican cuisine served at Merlot Restaurant & Bar was the main highlight of their visit.

    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    Travelers who prefer their accommodations infused with a little bit of pizzazz should consider bedding down at Be Playa. This boutique hotel  located in central Playa del Carmen, just a few blocks from the beach  earns praise for its bright colors, unique architecture and signature decorative accents. Suites feature crisp, white linens offset by hardwood floors, contemporary furnishings and, in some suites, stand-alone soaking tubs. Though the look and feel of Be Playa is its overall draw, it doesn't suit every vacationer; some gripe that the rooms here lack separation between the bedrooms and bathrooms, while others describe the beds as exceedingly comfortable and the layout as well-designed. But design preferences aside, travelers compliment Be Playa's ultra-cool pool lounge and the fresh sushi served at the in-house restaurant, Sushi Club. Be Playa's enviable address is hard to beat, too, offering guests easy access to the Riviera Maya's soft sands and Playa del Carmen's abundance of shops, eateries and nightlife venues.

    A small retreat on the coast of the Riviera Maya, the environmentally friendly Ahau Tulum offers just 23 rooms, including suites with vaulted palapa ceilings, Balinese-inspired huts and a four-person beach cabana.

A beach with lounge chairs and umbrellas is available as well. What's more, several top attractions – such as Tulum, Mexico's famous Mayan ruins and El Gran Cenote – sit less than 7 miles away. After working up an appetite, travelers can visit the on-site restaurant, where Mexican-Caribbean fusion cuisine is on the menu. Though some said the food was overpriced, recent visitors overall praised the hotel's service, design and location.

    Set in the heart of Tulum, approximately 4 miles from the area's beloved Mayan ruins, this quaint hotel overlooks a pearly white beach. Previous guests can't compliment the location enough, citing easy access to the sand, sea and sites as a top reason to return. Travelers also applaud the welcoming staff and the hotel's laid-back ambiance. But don't be deceived by the resort's casual atmosphere. Accommodations feature all the trappings of a high-end hideaway: ample living space, wooden furniture, Wi-Fi access and lofty balconies or terraces (some suites also grant access to a shared swimming pool). Outside, you can explore iconic sites or unwind along powdery, white sands. Afterward, tantalize your taste buds with authentic Mexican fare at the hotel's restaurant and bar; most travelers enjoyed the food served on-site, despite the high menu prices. Still craving more? Escape to the Om Spa, which offers specialty treatments like purifying papaya body wraps.

    In Fashion Hotel Boutique - All Adult

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 430 reviewsTripAdvisor (430)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    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. The bold decor characterizes other areas of the hotel as well: In Fashion's spa exhibits a bright, yet relaxed atmosphere. 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.
