Mahekal Beach Resort
Mahekal Beach Resort’s Playa del Carmen accommodations provide guests with a unique and authentic resort experience. The resort’s palapa-style bungalows envelop guests in a carefree, bohemian atmosphere, complemented by mesmerizing ocean views, secluded garden and tropical foliage surroundings and upscale design details. Each room type — Garden View, Ocean View, Treehouses, Penthouses, or Ocean Front and Beach Houses — features individual outdoor terraces and personal hammocks, with hand-laid stone pathways leading to each individual doorstep.
Ocean Front Beach House accommodations are located directly on the beach — just 10 steps from the water — and some come equipped with personal plunge pools or moon showers. Top-floor hotel rooms in Playa del Carmen feature natural palapa ceilings, inspired by Mayan architecture.
At Mahekal Beach Resort, guests enjoy an “unplugged”-style vacation experience: guestrooms do not come with TVs, but they do include state-of-the-art Wi-Fi access and a service-focused telephone system directly connected to on-property services.
