Overview

Room amenities include fresh fruit daily, private plunge pools and personal butler service
Spa treatments here are expensive
Rosewood Mayakoba fully immerses guests in the Riviera Maya's beauty through its architecture and design. Not only is it flanked by the region's famed crystalline sands and lush jungle, the resort is also constructed from local materials, such as Yucatan limestone and regional wood. Visitors especially praise the private terrace and heated plunge pool attached to each of the property's 129 suites. And the welcome tequila, daily restocked fruit bowl and personal butler service, which the daily resort fee (15% of your room rate) covers, exemplify an above-par level of hospitality. The culinary offerings at Rosewood Mayakoba's five restaurants are another point of praise among recent guests. And, despite their high price tags, visitors say the unique treatments at Sense, A Rosewood Spa are well worth the indulgence. Once you're feeling relaxed, perfect your swing at the adjacent El Camaleón golf course or soak up your surroundings with a kayaking or snorkeling adventure. You'll find this Rosewood outpost just north of downtown Playa del Carmen, Mexico, in the Mayakoba resort complex.
