A blissfully adults-only, slick urban retreat between Playa del Carmen’s beach and bustling centre – includes all travel and all-inclusive board

Set on the shores of the Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen is one of Mexico’s coolest cities, where beaches overflow with beautiful people and the town hops to its own Latin-fuelled beat. Close to Cancun but with easy access to the southern sights of Cozumel, Tulum and Cobá, it’s the perfect spot for savvy travellers seeking sun, sea and sand with a healthy dose of nightlife on the side.

Located just one block from the beach and a short stroll from Playa’s buzzing 5th Avenue, the adults-only The Reef 28 offers style in spades and a generous all-inclusive board to keep you satisfied from sunrise to sunset and into the evening. With sleek rooms and suites, a choice of four restaurants and a small but perfectly-formed spa just steps from the beach, everything you need is on site – but there are two sister hotels at your disposal too if you fancy a change of scenery.

Soak up the Quintana Roo sun in your most stylish resortwear around the hotel’s swish infinity pool: cabanas and sun loungers are the ideal place for a siesta and you’ll wake up to a pulsing DJ soundtrack and views of the city and the sea. When you’re not snapping the perfect Insta story to make friends back home green with envy, book an excursion to the local reefs for diving or snorkelling and keep an eye out for rays, sea turtles and colourful coral. The towering ruins of Chichen Itza are a manageable two-hour drive away – great for a day trip into the Yucatan.

Good to know

There is a resort shuttle operating between The Reef 28 and two sister properties, The Reef Playacar and The Reef Coco Beach. Guests can use some of the facilities at either of these hotels.


Junior suites are flooded with sunlight, with full-width sliding doors opening onto a private outdoor terrace. Sleek and contemporary, these rooms feel elegant with soothing natural tones and polished tiled floors which help to keep the room cool. Relax in the separate seating area, chill out on the terrace with a book or prepare for a night out in the smart en-suite bathroom with glass-walled rainfall shower.

Breakfasts at Ventiocho are buffet style, so you can pick and choose from an expansive array of options each morning – plus it’s served until 11am, so a lie in is perfectly possible. Later in the day, choose from Mexican, Asian and American-style cuisine at one of the hotel’s restaurants: Cachito serves authentic Mexican dishes like empanadas, ceviche and fresh seafood; Arriba is located on the rooftop with views of the city and ocean, with casual dining; while Asiatico opens for dinner only, bringing Far East dishes to Playa del Carmen.


The hotel’s wellness centre is just steps from the beach club, so you can go from sun lounger to spa in mere moments – massages and facials are on offer here. Alternatively, take the free resort shuttle to one of the hotel’s sister establishments to utilise the more extensive spa facilities there; you can visit both The Reef Playacar and The Reef Coco Beach. Being an urban hotel, the infinity-edge swimming pool is located on the roof with sunloungers and cabanas to laze on.


Located half-way between the beach and Playa del Carmen’s lively 5th Avenue, the hotel offers a best-of-both-worlds location with easy access to Mamita’s Beach and the sights of the city. Playa del Carmen is a great base for exploring the Riviera Maya.
