Beach Beachfront Honeymoon Island Romance Romantic Waterfront sky water long tail boat Sea shore watercraft rowing caribbean Ocean Lagoon sunny day sandy Boat


Beachfront resort 15 minutes from Playa del Carmen, with a seaside spa and dreamy Caribbean views

The Look

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.

Amazing holiday
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed at Le Reve the first week of June and we enjoyed our holiday at this beautiful small resort. All the staff are great, especially Eduardo and Mateo at the restaurant. The service provided by everyone is A1 starting from the cleaning lady, to the lobby and waiters. The food is excellent, the only small con is that it is the same menu every day, but I presume we stayed during low season and the hotel was half empty. The rooms are spotless and very modern. The pool is beautiful and cleaned daily. There was a lot of sea weed in the sea during our stay so we didn't swik in it much, however the beach is breathtaking. This resort is very small and calm, not for party people, but more if you want to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

This is not my first time in Playa del Carmen but this time I wanted to do it differently, after a short while on the internet I found this cute littel place called Le Reve, I could be here sometime expressing my surprise and experiences in the place after only 4 days, but I will let you find out by yourselves, I will only say this, Gourmeth all inclusive, superv... Service well unforgettable (from Jesus and Juan in housekeeping to Eduardo or Freddy or even the boss Toño), last but not least Hugo B the manager who always made us feel special, also location location location, I fell from my bed to the beach everyday!!! just to put it in words.... There might be things that are not perfect yes I know, the rocks on the water (which I believe prevented the locals to come) and some seaweed, but they told me is seasonal, but our experience and comments are the result of all the things that made our trip GREAT and reaaaally SPECIAL, thank you guys!!!! we´ll be back soon!!!!

A lovely and friendly boutique hotel!

Le Reve Hotel is perfect for a relaxing getaway. It’s much smaller than other hotels in the area which gives it a more personal and friendly vibe. The staff are amazing and very attentive. Our room was simple but clean and comfortable, with a beautiful view of the ocean.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to switch off from the real world.

Only one downside is the restaurant, which feels a little bit like a canteen. The food is good, but the atmosphere is lacking due to the decor. It’s only 20 mins by cab into Playa Del Carmen, where you can find lots of bustling restaurants and bars.

We will definitely be back!

Cockroach in 194 USD/night room
Reviewed 2 months ago

The service staff super nice, but for this room price I don't expect cockroaches. The windows have many places where they can get inside. In the bathroom the moskito net is broken.
The restaurant is great, but if the noise is unsopportable even if only 7 tables are occupied (im not referring to the music!, the music was sublime in the background) , couldn't even understand what my partner said without shouting.
Invest in soundproofing the ceiling and the walls! Poor waiters, it must be hell working everyday with such noise.
