This huge hotel is set by a long stretch of beach with a golf course in striking distance. Plus, it comes with a great pool scene.
This is one of 3 hotels in a super-sized complex. Inside the tropical grounds there are 2 pools and 3 à la carte restaurants with little shuttle buses to help you get around.
Minibuses leave from outside and it’s 5 minutes to a 1.5-kilometre white-sand beach. Or it’s 30 minutes further to the centre of Playa del Carmen, with high street shopping and authentic Mexican restaurants.
