The 50 acre private estate gives this a feel of an exclusive getaway more than a hotel. The beachfront, two swimming pools, day spa and gourmet restaurant all compete for guests’ attention, and there’s a regal feel throughout. Probably the most elegant retreat on the Riviera Maya.
Come for the famous walled Mayan city, stay for the laid back beach town with a somewhat bohemian vibe. The white sands here are well worth travelling the extra few hours from Cancun for, and the ruins are on a par with any in the country. In the evenings, listen to the sea sipping tequila from a beachside hammock.
