Playa del Carmen

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.

  • Bedding down in stylish suites: enjoy relaxing on your own private terrace or inviting friends over for drinks in your seating area
