The Playa del Carmen hotel includes two fresh water swimming pools surrounded by a vast park, a Jacuzzi, a solarium-terrace, a gym and the wellness centre with a range of different treatments and massages.

Mexican cuisine is famous for its wide variety of recipes. It is recognised for its distinctive and sophisticated flavours which incorporate many different spices. It is a combination of gastronomic traditions, including Mesoamerican and European ones, as well as many others, which is why the buffet restaurant and the different themed restaurants of the hotel offer menus and dishes from all parts of the world.

One of the best all inclusive resorts in Mexico, you will find a range of sports and activities to enjoy all day long with our entertainers, whilst the entertainment programme will ensure you make the most of every minute.
