Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On a secluded beach between the stunning Tulum Mayan ruins and Playa del Carmen

El Dorado Seaside Suites Resort is located on a sandy beach in the Kantenah Bay, in the southern half of the Riviera Maya. There’s nothing within walking distance, but it offers easy access to the famous Tulum Mayan ruins, and is a short drive to Playa del Carmen, a less rowdy alternative to Cancun.

Playa del Carmen has great nightlife, arguably the best shopping in the Riviera Maya, and wonderful restaurants.

  • 1-hour-10-minute drive to Cancun International Airport
  • 25-minute drive to Tulum Mayan ruins
  • 30-minute drive to Playa del Carmen
  • 30-minute drive to Xcaret Eco Theme Park
  • 1-hour drive to Puerto Morelos, with quiet beaches and great snorkeling spots
  • 1-hour-20-minute drive to downtown Cancun
  • 1-hour 25-minute drive to Coba ruins
  • 3-hour drive to Chichen Itza Mayan ruins
