With unique privileges like exclusive villa concierge service and fresh fruit upon arrival, Royal Hideaway Playacar – Adults Only takes extra steps to ensure a memorable experience, and past guests said it delivers. Those who have stayed at this all-inclusive resort cite the excellent customer service as a reason to return. With more than 200 accommodations, Royal Hideaway is smaller than other resorts set in Playa del Carmen's Playacar neighborhood. However, each guest room and suite is appointed with traditional Mexican design elements, a satellite television, a coffee maker and a private balcony or terrace. Royal Hideaway's room rates also include access to six pools, two tennis courts, a variety of land activities and water sports (including kayaking, windsurfing and sailing), a fitness center and evening entertainment. Plus, meals, drinks and snacks at the resort's six a la carte restaurants won't rack up your tab. Royal Hideaway also houses a full-service spa, though treatments are not covered in the all-inclusive rate.

Food is above par for an all-inclusive resort, especially at Azia, where... some of the Pan-Asian dishes are prepared tableside.

Condé Nast Traveler


The Spanish colonial beachfront all-inclusive resides on 13 acres near Playa del Carmen. Rooms, divided among villas named for flowers, provide Zen-like ambience with 'dark wood furniture and Carrera marble.'


The beautiful grounds, overall sophisticated vibe, adults-only policy, and beautiful beachfront location a short drive from shopping on Playa’s Fifth Avenue make it one of the most attractive options for couples in Playacar.
