Located in the center of Playa del Carmen, The Palm at Playa, a boutique property just steps from the beach, sets the gold standard for service and quality.
Situated a few blocks from Playa del Carmen's main street–5th Avenue–the hotel gives guests the best of both worlds. Just a short walk away, guests can shop till they drop in the trendy boutiques that line the way or sit back and enjoy some of the city's finest cuisine at the many nearby restaurants and cafes. But back at the hotel they will find a quiet oasis where they can relax and enjoy the hotel's many top-notch amenities and offerings–in fact they may just have a hard time leaving.
Rooftop pool. The Palm at Playa's rooftop offers a spectacular view of the city, as well as an inviting pool, Jacuzzi and casual dining options. It's the ideal spot from which to take in the sunset while sipping margaritas and mojitos (which seem to flow non-stop) and enjoying tasty regional light fare from the snack bar. At night the terrace comes alive with jazz music and dancing as it transforms itself into a trendy nightspot.
Fitness and spa. The hotel's gym and Zen Eco Spa, which utilizes treatments based on holistic Mayan traditions, will invigorate both body and spirit. The hotel prides itself on spa treatments that represent a fusion of pure ingredients, delicate fragrances and innovative quartz techniques and tropical fruits.
Superb accommodations. With 69 carefully designed suites and lofts, guests will feel pampered from the moment they set foot in their rooms. Sophisticated design meets spacious and airy interiors, while custom-made furniture is accented by the use of calming color schemes. The Palm Room features a mix of wood accents and warm Earth tones that invite guests to relax and enjoy. The vibrant Palm Lofts feature open floor plans where the bedroom and living room areas share the same sunny space. The Palm Deluxe One Suite offers more privacy with separate living room and bedroom areas and is packed with luxurious details and modern patterns. The Palm Deluxe Two Suite features a generous living area, dining room, fully equipped wet bar and two single rooms outfitted in rich detail, texture and color. All rooms offer free Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs, and tea and coffeemakers
Tasty morsels. The hotel’s flagship restaurant, Calle Ocho, offers contemporary Mexican fare at local prices and is a dining experience not to be missed. A decor featuring Mexican pop art and mirrors is the perfect backdrop for diners to enjoy Mexican contemporary cuisine in a lively and casual environment. The Aroma Cilantro Restaurant serves up tasty Mexican cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner as is the ideal place to grab breakfast or a yummy lunch after a morning on the beach.
