Beachfront resort 15 minutes from Playa del Carmen, with a seaside spa and dreamy Caribbean views
On Mexico’s Riviera Maya, between the megaresorts in Cancun and eco-villas in Tulum, Playa del Carmen is the beach town of choice for romance and relaxation — qualities taken to heart at honeymooner-favorite Le Rêve. Between the jungle and the gin-clear Caribbean Sea, the resort’s thatched-roof buildings, palm-dotted grounds and large pool evoke an appropriately beachy vibe while letting the region’s natural good looks take center stage.
Bed and Bath
Intimate and private, each of the resort’s 25 suites has a special flair: Colorful Mexican tiles play against dark wood, bright-white comforters are tossed with tropical flowers, and bathrooms get a beachy vibe from wicker accessories. No matter your suite’s aesthetic, the sparkling Caribbean is never far from view. Bump up the privacy factor by booking a thatched bungalow with your own personal pool. Greet the morning with a double dip: Acclimate with a splash in the plunge pool, then walk a dozen paces to the sea for a saltier swim.
The resort’s Merlot restaurant builds its menus around locally produced ingredients, which include tangy ceviche, grilled fish and salsas made with tropical fruits. For couples, the resort excels at wedding and honeymoon packages, with a full-time wedding coordinator and plenty of special services, like nighttime tiki torches and breakfast in bed.
