Fancy extras like Jacuzzi® rooms and beach waiters mean that luxury is the tag word at the adults-only Sensimar Seaside Suites & Spa.
It’s easy to see why Forbes – the US mag famous for its lists – voted this adults-only hideaway one of the world’s most romantic hotels. It’s wrapped in palm-filled gardens, so it feels really intimate, and it’s right on a quiet stretch of the Riviera Maya.
Luxe touches take the form of canopied daybeds and beach waiters, and junior suites with Jacuzzis® come as standard. To top it all off, the dining set-up is Gourmet Inclusive, so you’ve got the run of eight high-calibre restaurants and as many bars.

We stayed for 2 weeks in a junior suite. The hotel layout was really well thought out giving the feeling of space and privacy due to the beautiful and established gardens. The variety and quality of food in the restaurants was fantastic. The helpfulness and friendliness of staff right through from management to chambermaid was wonderful. The evening shows were very professional. An ideal location for visiting lots of temples around the Yucatan peninsula (we hired a car and did our own trips) We will be back.More
Full marks to Sensimar
We pushed the boat out a little this year spending more than we normally would for a week long holiday. Our only regret was we wished we'd had two weeks. The food was exceptional, the friendliness and courtesy of the Staff outstanding. Could not find a fault!!! More
Nice, But won't be a repeat customer
Nice ambiance, horrible rooms. I have a 10 night stay in a Jr swim up jacuzzi suite. 1 day we had no cold water in our room, everything was scalding hot. (found that out the hard way in the shower). Next day, no hot water which was also found out in a shower. Again, great ambiance, good food (nothing special, slightly sub par for an all inclusive resort). The gardens are a great view, landscaping was great, but I would not come back here. Being to Mexico 6 different times this is the worse. This is the most expensive trip (5,700.00 for 9 nights not including airfare) and also the worse. The rooms are dark with really poor lighting. BTW. It's NOT all inclusive. A bottle of wine costs you 75 usd. And it's also wine you can buy in the US for $5.00 a bottle. Welcoming into the resort was very sub par. I've taken longer to check into a Holliday Inn. In all. Service is OK. Unless you're on the beach, then it's horrible. In all, it's an average resort but worth only one visit. More
A mixed review!
We have recently returned from a 2 week stay at the Sensimar Seaside Suites 3rd - 17th April. Firstly I want to say how great and welcoming some of the staff are here. The sports and entertainment team were brilliant, Annel, Lorena, Sexy Jose, Karla, Marco, Fernando, Aldo and most of all Joaquin! Definitely an extra special mention needs to be given to Joaquin who made our stay much more enjoyable. A mention to two members of staff from Guacamayas bar on an evening, Suemy was lovely and couldn't have done more for us every evening we were around the bar and the bartender Giuseppe who was the most enthusiastic and friendly barman we've ever come across! The waiters Armando, Nelson, Roberto, Sergio and Jonathan also deserve a special mention for their great service and extra effort. We did however find a couple of disappointing things with the hotel. On numerous occasions our mini fridge was not re stocked in the room, and on a particular occasion, after ringing reception twice in one day it was still not restocked. The following day we had to ring again and it was finally restocked. We paid extra for a beach front suite which was unfortunately extremely dark and dull, which was rather disappointing. We had to keep our curtains closed when in the room for privacy as there was a path right outside the room and the lighting in the room was not significant to light the room. There was also a wait time at most of the restaurants on an evening and some at lunch time. This was usually around half an hour or sometimes longer. We were not made aware until we got to the hotel that the Senimar shares restaurants and facilities with the El Dorado hotel next door, which is probably a big contributing factor to the wait time. There was a variety of restaurants for both lunch and dinner, but we did find there was a lack of consistency in quality of food as well as quality of service. The issue with sunbeds that is mentioned in a lot of reviews I think can be slightly over exaggerated. During our 2 week stay there was not a day where sunbeds weren't free on the beach. While it is true that people get up early to reserve the bali beds, there are always plenty of normal sunbeds. The same situation for around the main water activities pool. We would often go over there at lunch time and manage to still get a sunbed. We did enjoy our holiday, but feel we paid more than it was worth.More
EXCELLENT SERVICE WONDERFUL FOOD
This is a wonderful place to visit - we loved every minute of our week long stay. A wonderful welcome with a cold cloth and then sparkling wine and some nibbles (that's before we even get to the room). The room is lovely Rustic rather than contemporary - we chose the Premium suites and again they did not disappoint. Bar topped up everyday and sheets wonderful high quality. The room was very clean and stayed that way. Bars provided fantastic service with extra alcohol being offered all of the time, service at the beach again was great with someone (Carolina usually) serving us every 30 mins if we wanted. Food in every restaurant was superb especially the Asian and the Italian restaurant. We sat outside on the beach for breakfast and lunch (wonderful). I really loved the soup and if you ask for a double serving they bring it - the presentation was awesome. I would return tomorrow if I could and I have been in lots and lots of hotels - I have to say that I still prefer the Secrets brand (Secrets Silversands and Secrets Maroma Beach) but this comes as a close call to it and much cheaper. We will be back - loved every minute especially the service.More
