Overview

Thompson Hotels' Caribbean debut in downtown Playa, with a glam ’50s look and huge roof deck

The Lowdown

The first Caribbean outpost from design-loving Thompson Hotels, the Playa del Carmen promises a sophisticated Midcentury Mexican style, large guest rooms, and a 30,000-square-foot roof deck for lounging, dining, drinking, and dancing. Mexico City designers Niz + Chauvet are behind the smart style, which uses local materials and includes bespoke furnishings by Mexican craftsmen. All of the 92 guest rooms have beds dressed in sateen covers, craft cocktail bars and gourmet minibars, free WiFi and (in many rooms) private terraces furnished with custom daybeds. Most rooms overlook Playa’s streets, but some have partial views of the Caribbean. For even better scenery, head up to the sprawling 30,000-square-foot roof deck for 360-degree views of downtown and the blue sea beyond. This sure-to-be-a-hotspot playground has an infinity pool, sunken loungers and cabanas, a cocktail bar and food by the seafood experts at Catch, in New York’s Meatpacking District.

In the Area

The Thompson Playa del Carmen is on a prime patch of Quinta Avenida, Playa’s frenetic main thoroughfare. There are curiously few good Mexican restaurants, but you’ll find local specialties at Maiz de Mar, Almirante Peche and the hip Plank. For beach time (until the Beach House opens), nab your lounger early at Mamita’s Beach Club or arrive after dark for a dance party on the sand. For a dose of retail therapy, Quinta Avenida favorites include Narcisa and La Bikineria. Away from Playa, make the one-hour drive to hip Tulum for culture at the ancient Mayan ruins; top eats at Hartwood, Posada Margherita and Zamas; and eco-adventures in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.
