All-Inclusive Beachfront Resort in Tropical Garden Setting
From its idyllic beachfront spot in Playa del Carmen, the all-inclusive Reef Playacar Resort and Spa gives guests the chance to explore the scenic Yucatán Peninsula, even offering several cultural and adventure tours (for extra fees). Traveling a few hours west will bring you to the iconic Mayan step pyramid at Chichén Itzá, named one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
Back along the coast, you can take a Caribbean cruise on a replica of a 17th-century Spanish galleon or schedule some time at the local dolphinarium to play, swim, and kiss a dolphin. And when you just want to relax, you can simply walk down to the beach and dig your toes into the sand.
The resort’s 18 villas and standard rooms are in a tropical, jungle-like setting. Paths connecting the villas to the beach meander beneath palm trees filled with singing birds. The resort offers all-inclusive dining and nightlife options, including Botticelli, an alfresco Italian restaurant with a buffet and an à la carte eatery, and for an additional fee, Terraza Grill, a fine-dining restaurant. Guests can also cool off at the ice-cream parlor, located beside a natural cenote. During the day, feel free to use the resort’s complimentary sea kayaks and snorkel gear to explore the coastline.
