Map of Sensimar Seaside Suites & Spa

Sensimar Seaside Suites & Spa 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.
