What We Love

  • The beach. It’s small and private and has been recently de-bouldered.
  • Lovely gardens and hidden Jacuzzis around the resort.
  • Villa butlers: Each villa courtyard has its own butler, who will do everything from making scuba arrangements to getting your dinner reservations.
  • The gardens, and the large amount of flowing water, at this property have made it a favorite of Yucatan’s rich birdlife.
  • Freebies like bicycles and kayaks.

What To Know

  • Rates include unlimited meals, snacks, top shelf alcoholic beverages, natural juices and soft drinks
  • Get off the property. Yucatan is full of amazing activities, including trips to Tulum, which can arranged by the hotel or done on your own, cenote diving, or scuba diving.
  • The sun is very strong. Use sunscreen (provided in rooms) and hydrate often.
  • Adults only.

I cannot say enough about this resort. The staff, food, decor, etc. was more than I could have ever imagined.

Honestly, the best place I have ever stayed. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an adults only getaway.

I could go on and on, but do not have the time to write a lengthy review. Don't second guess this place, it is amazing!

We would definitely visit again!

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Hideaway Playacar in May 2019 in a fabulous suite. The Staff, Restaurants, Pools and Entertainment and were all amazing. Having stayed for 2 1/2 weeks we really got to know many of the staff who were very friendly, helpful and accommodating.
In particular I would like to give special mention to the following: Spices Mexican Restaurant: Chef Enrique Hernandez, Manager Rodolfo, Hostess Rosalina, Alan Martinez & Victor Mendez. The Grill Restaurant: Anjaro & Rosa. The Spa: Rosa & Alejandro. Pool & Activities: Marco. Thank you all for helping make or vacation especially enjoyable.

One of the Best places I've stayed.

Stayed recently 8/06/2019 for week. This one of the best hotels I've stayed in. You can have the most amazing hotel but if the staff aren't on your side then it doesn't matter. All the staff showed interest in your comfort and well being then without being overbearing. Everyone from the managers to the restaurant staff too the pool waiters they were all great. The food was wonderful with a varied menu with a choice of restaurants, Mexican, Italian and Asian which you must be booked, so something for everyone (my wife is gluten free and they covered her food requirements no problem). The rooms were lovely and comfortable with a bed that was hard to get out of, with a roomy bathroom and greatly needed air-con (it was quite hot when we went). The grounds of the hotel are well maintained gardens with some local wild life, i wouldn't worry about it as the wild life won't worry about you, just be respectful as they were there first. There are two amazing pools with fantastic views of the beach, with four more secluded smaller pools around the gardens ( go investigating ). The beach is wonderful soft white sand dotted with palm trees which give some shade and is a step or two from the grounds of hotel and pool area. The beach is large with open sand from the hotel the sea so plenty of room for a sunbath or walk about.

All in all we went to relax and unwind to which this hotel was perfect, so we can't wait to go back next year.

Underrated resort with amazing food and staff!

This is an amazing hotel. What is there not to love about this hotel. Every detail was looked after. From the chilled towels and water bottles on the tennis courts. Turn down service, Personal concierg. 24/7 room servie. Good food (We loved Pallazzio and Ventanas the most). and amazing beach. Best of all the service is amazing and everyone is so KIND!!!! We will come again for sure!!!
