Royal Hideaway Playacar Resort

Lote Hotelero No. 6
Playa del Carmen , Mexico
52 984 873-4500

Despite the fact that this adults-only (guests must be 13 or older), all-inclusive resort is just a few miles from Playa del Carmen, visitors need never leave: there’s tennis, sailing, biking, even basketball, not to mention a piano bar, cooking classes, and of course, pools everywhere, as well as scheduled activities like shuffleboard that bring to mind an old-school cruise. Overlooking the ocean, solarium decks with oversize canopied beds unfurl next to dazzling villas bedecked with Spanish-style columns; dark lattice-wood headboards and alcoves displaying Mexican art ground the airy effect of beds piled high with creamy gold-and-brown pillows.
