On a lovely white-sand beach halfway between laid-back Puerto Morelos and hip Playa del Carmen
The hotel is set on a jungle preserve located halfway between the towns of Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen. The area serves as a perfect compromise for anyone looking for Cancun's stunning beaches sans the hordes of tourists. The impressive reefs just offshore attract a fair share of divers, and many come to take a dip in the inland cenotes (massive sinkholes filled with crystal-clear groundwater).
There’s nothing within walking distance but for the gorgeous beach and other resorts, but the hotel has a list or trusted cab drivers that will take you anywhere. Just make sure to call ahead, as they are not on-site.
This upscale 65-room boutique between Playa del Carmen and Puerto Morelos has a beautiful setting on a white-sand beach, amid a jungle preserve. Contemporary rooms are equipped with original artwork, furniture from the hotel’s own workshops, king beds and either a terrace or a balcony. The great amenities on offer, including three pools, upscale dining, a wonderful spa, and a gorgeous beach, make this a solid pick, but prices are quite steep; other luxury resorts in the area may offer better value.
