Class up your next Caribbean getaway at Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya, a chic retreat on the sands of Playa del Carmen. One of the top-ranked hotels in town on TripAdvisor, this boutique base shows off a modern and minimalist take on tropical design, among beautifully landscaped grounds. Step out of your light-filled, open-plan guest room to discover three glittering sleek swimming holes and the Mayakoba Resort’s peaceful lagoons and lush gardens – all crisscrossed by more than three miles of nature trails that you can explore on a complimentary bike.
Also enjoy a bit of local flavor, along with the locally inspired style. One of the hotel’s highlights is its dining program, comprising four restaurants and specializing in Yucatán street-food and seafood dishes: tacos, tortas and ceviche, for instance. And once you’ve taken in the sights and sounds and treated your taste buds the regional cuisine, get your sense of touch in on the Mexican Caribbean experience. Stop by the hydrotherapy spa, and surrender yourself to the hands of a seasoned therapist, in a beachy wellness treatment.
Your room is a tropical oasis, a breezy, light-filled, open-plan hideaway that features minimalist lines, decorative tiles and local artworks. You’ll enjoy having your very own terrace or balcony, overlooking your choice of lagoons or sea.
Savor the flavors of Latin American cooking at the four eateries and drinkeries. Casa Amate is the most formal of the bunch, while Cocina Milagro opens all day for seafood dishes, presented buffet-style, and OllaTaco and OllaCeviche serve their namesake specialties on the beach. Room service is also available, 24 hours a day.
Six treatment rooms with two hydrotherapy areas, plus a salon, make up the peaceful wellness center, where you can go for a beachy spa treatment or beauty service. The full-service fitness center holds cardio machines and a yoga studio and complements the three miles of biking and jogging nature trails outside.
Since you’re right on the Mexican Caribbean, your first order of business will likely be beach bumming – or perhaps appreciating the seaside in a more active way, such as snorkeling, kitesurfing, stand-up paddleboarding or taking a sunrise-yoga lesson on the sands. Sign up for a guided kayak tour of the lagoons, as well, or ride a complimentary bike through the three miles of nature trails.The concierge can schedule tee time at the surrounding resort’s Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón golf course and academy, and you can avail yourself of this larger property’s tennis courts, archery-lesson offerings and croquet equipment; simply hop on the Mayakoba Connection Ferry Service. Younger guests may visit the convenient kids club.
How to Get There
The Andaz is a wonderful resort and a great value in the rainy season. We especially enjoy that it is possible to experience so much nature (beautiful birds!), which distinguishes it from a typical high end resort. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed our lagoon view, which came with a nearby egret when we arrived.
All of the restaurants here are good and the service is warm, friendly, and professional. We very much appreciated the extras we received for my partner's birthday and the extra late checkout at the last minute when our flight was delayed 6 hours. This is a wonderful place to relax for a few days!
We spent an spectacular weekend at Andaz. Since the very moment we arrived until the last minute the service and attention from everyone in the facility was above our spectations. The food, the room, the drinks, the view, the spa, etc. We highly recommend to stay there if you want to forget about stress and want to enjoy and relax.
PS: go to the brunch at Casa Amate. I am sure you will love it.
· Everything, from the super friendly staff that made our stay a lot more special and personalised, to the food that it was innovative and very tasty. The resort itself is super modern and you can feel still very new.
Well deserved mention to the staff on the beach and pool area (Ramon and his son :)) that treat you like a super star. Also Edgar, behind the bar at Tinta de Pulpo restaurant, was super nice with us.
· The prices of the Spa were excessively expensive. I cannot find those prices even in London.
A shame that the champagne or fizzy wines are not included in the All inclusive package.
