    The Palm at Playa
    Playa del Carmen
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2043 reviewsTripAdvisor (2043)
    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.

    Acanto Boutique Hotel & Condominiums
    Playa del Carmen
    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.

    Le Rêve Hotel & Spa
    Playa del Carmen
    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.

    Be Playa Hotel
    Playa del Carmen
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 727 reviewsTripAdvisor (727)
    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.

    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.
