10 hotels in Playa del Carmen: Best hotel deals for 2023

August 5, 2022 Alida England

Playa del Carmen is one of the top diving destinations in the world, thanks to vibrant sea life and dazzling underwater caverns. On dry land, Playa is a hipper and more modern version of the fishing village it once was. Spend some quality time on the golf course or wave hello to the playful spider monkeys at The Jungle Place sanctuary. Explore the ancient ruins of the Coba Mayan Village, or get in some quality people-watching as you shop and stroll along 5th Avenue.

This place has everything you could want in a resort. There are friendly faces everywhere, even the landscapers are friendly and say hi. You can make it as laid back as you want or as active as you want. Sonia is the best bartender and made the best Dirty Monkeys! The food is great and love their cheeseburgers. Dora was a ray of sunshine among the rain clouds. She had all the answers to any questions we had. I would recommend this resort to anyone and everyone!

Wedding Anniversary

Reviewed By 845patic

Our experience at Fairmont Mayakoba was one of the most unforgettable. It all began from the moment Ms Alexia Flandes had assisted us in making the necessary arrangements for my husband and I to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary. She helped us make the reservations for the upcoming days such as restaurant reservations and other activities. When we arrived she personally greeting and welcomed us to the resort which made us immediately feel at home. Our entire visit we were treated with friendliness, professionalism and hospitality. Everyone from Carlos at the reception area, Marco, Jaime, Rodolfo, Eddie that made sure we were being taken care of while we were at the pool providing us with excellent dishes and refreshing drinks and whenever possible having small conversations where they shared information about the resort and how fortunate they felt to be able to provide such a great experience to all of the guests. Ms Yulisa who helped us save some of our memories by providing us with beautiful and memorable pictures to share with our children and grandchildren during our photo session. To Ms. Gabriela Castaneda who at the end of our visit took time to stand and the entrance of the resort and wish us safe travels and waved good bye as if we were saying our goodbyes to a family member. The resort and its layout is breathtaking and different from all others. The nature trails and all it’s beautiful birds and plants. The spectacular golf course and the beautiful beach. The outstanding restaurant and the relaxing spa. If anyone is searching for a location where they could relax and feel pampered this is definitely the location to go to. Fairmont Mayakoba is absolutely beautiful but what made it such an amazing place to visit is truly it’s staff. We will definitely be planning to return but this time we would love to share our experience with the rest of our family members. To everyone at Fairmont Mayakoba thank you for helping us create such beautiful memories.

The service is wonderful. They give the orders to you almost immediately. The rooms are really nice. They are really spacious. The water park is so much fun. It keeps you coming back to relax and play. The deserts are amazing because of room service which is free. All the time they make it fresh and cool to survive the heat. The activities are so fun because of the characters you can see and take pictures with. They have so much character in them they love joking and playing with you. Like how Squidward always grumpy and sandy is always energetic. Thank you to Irving and to gaby for helping and serving us with games and activities.
