Las Villas Akumal

Las Villas Akumal Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Located on a pristine (and rocky) stretch of sand just a few minutes' drive south of Akumal Beach’s increasingly popular center, the 26-villa, upper-mid-range Las Villas Akumal feels miles away. Most units are bright and feature full kitchens; all have purified water jugs (as faucet water is undrinkable) and free high-speed Wi-Fi. There are also beach loungers, free kayak and snorkel rentals, drink service by the (small) pool, and a simple restaurant overlooking the bay. It's best suited for families or couples looking for a quiet getaway, though you’ll have to trade the serenity for hustle and bustle if you want easy access to entertainment and restaurants.
La Tortuga Hotel & Spa

La Tortuga Hotel & Spa Rating: 3.0 Pearls

La Tortuga Hotel & Spa is an intimate boutique hotel best described as "barefoot chic." It's a good option for couples who want to watch their budget and be within fast walking distance of tourist-friendly 5th Avenue and the beach, but it's not the place for the typical Mexico vacation of all-inclusive packages on the beach. Older, but comfortable, rooms are centered around a gorgeous lagoon-style swimming pool landscaped with lush tropical plants, though the water isn't heated. The on-site restaurant and bar are solid choices, but there's plenty of options in the immediate neighborhood. Be warned that nearby Coco Bongo nightclub rages until the wee hours, so pack earplugs.
Hotel B Cozumel

Hotel B Cozumel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Hotel B has everything a hotel needs to draw a young, hip crowd: a lounge-y beach, spacious rooms with great amenities, a gorgeous infinity-edge pool, a hopping bar with great mojitos, and yoga classes several times a week. Everything here is trendy, but that doesn’t come at the cost of sustainability, social responsibility, or local culture -- the property is decorated top to bottom with traditional Mexican touches with a contemporary twist and crafts made by Mexican artisans. Add this to great rates and a fabulous restaurant, and you’ve got a resort that's a very attractive alternative to the dozens of all-inclusive properties lining this part of the island.
BRIC Hotel

BRIC Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Just a half-block off the northern La Quinta Avenida strip, the BRIC Hotel features a quiet atmosphere surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens. The mid-range boutique’s common areas are stylish and have personality, but the 14 rooms don’t quite match up. They're a tad neglected and dated, although the small rooms do have flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and patios. Outside there’s free hot breakfast, purified water, and a garden with a small pool as well as a handful of lounge beds and chairs. Unlike most off-beach boutiques in the area, the Bric does not have deals with local beach clubs, though there’s a public beach within a 10-minute walk.
Las Casitas Akumal

Las Casitas Akumal Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The mid-range Las Casitas Akumal is located along the waters of northern Akumal Beach, and all 18 of its units have generous private terraces with uninterrupted views of Half Moon Bay and the leafy grounds. Ideal for small groups or families looking to self-cater, these simple house-like units feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and full kitchens with everything needed to whip up margaritas or mac and cheese. However, the prime central location brings lots of foot traffic and some noise near the entrance; if you’re looking for a more secluded escape you may want to check out Las Villas Akumal a few minutes south.
El Acuario Hotel

El Acuario Hotel Rating: 2.5 Pearls

El Acuario is a colorful 13-room value boutique a handful of blocks from Playa del Carmen’s bustling and busy La Quinta Avenida. Located in a quiet, residential area about a 15- to 20-minute walk to Playa’s famous sands, El Acuario sees mostly repeat, long-term guests who favor a simple, self-catering holiday on a budget. Pluses include a small and central pool, barbecue area, covered outside lounge area, and free Wi-Fi, though the apartment complex vibe and slightly out-of-the-way location may not be for everyone.
Aqualuna Boutique Hotel by Xperience Hotels

Aqualuna Boutique Hotel by Xperience Hotels Rating: 2.5 Pearls

A simple spot with a central location (but one not right in the thick of the main strip action), Aqualuna Boutique Hotel has 11 spacious, clean, no-frills rooms and one Mini-Suite within a block of central La Quinta Avenida. Located on 10th Avenue, this small budget (and super pet-friendly) boutique is easy walking distance to bars, restaurants, and nightlife. It gives guests discounts to local beach clubs, free Wi-Fi, a business center alcove in the garden, hospitality showers, and extra features such as bike rentals, breakfast, pools, and massages at nearby sister properties. It may not be the strip, but light sleepers should still pack earplugs.
Luna Blue Hotel

Luna Blue Hotel Rating: 2.5 Pearls

An excellent, back-to-basics lodging option, this budget hotel is centered around lovely, lush jungle grounds just half a block from the hopping La Quinta Avenida strip. This small nature-filled oasis holds 18 simple, no-frills rooms. (Read: no TVs or telephones.) Outdoor terrace or balcony spaces connect the rooms to the surrounding greenery. A small sunken pool gives an alternative to the beach, which is about a 10-minute walk away. Wi-Fi, beach towels, and in-room watercoolers are free. The hotel bar provides a place to chill out, listen to live music, and hang from one of the rope-swing seats, but it’s a spot more suited to singles or couples; party animals need not apply. The neighboring budget hotel Aqualuna Boutique has a few more amenities, but it doesn't have Luna Blue's personality.
