A glamorous stay at a stylish boutique hotel in the heart of Playa del Carmen, just steps from the beach

Mexico goes mid-century at Thompson Playa del Carmen. Encompassing both a downtown locale on buzzing 5th Avenue and a seafront, 27-room Beach House nearby, this luxurious retreat could not be more chic. Hip Thompson Hotels group has put its trendsetting twist on this Riviera Maya destination, with retro-inspired spaces by design firm Niz + Chauvet. From the rooftop "playground" with an infinity pool to the three sea-to-table restaurants to the cool accommodations with a craft-cocktail bar apiece, the vibe here captures the pulse of modern-day Playa del Carmen, by way of the past.

It all happens to the backdrop of the sparkling Caribbean shore itself. The rooftop gives you a brilliant vista of the sea, as do its two restaurants, while C-Grill lets you eat fresh fish and grilled corn right on the sands. In addition to celebrating both old and new, this boutique hangout celebrates both land and sea, as do all the tropical adventures you can try: spotting sea turtles at Akumal, seeing the cenotes of the Yucatan and dancing all night at Blue Parrot.

Good to know

If you're looking to stay right on the shore, opt for a room or suite at the Beach House. Situated near the property's main downtown location, this seafront base puts you right on the Caribbean.

Please note that a resort fee of $34.60 per room, per night is payable directly to the hotel. The resort fee includes daily yoga classes on the rooftop; entrance to the aquarium on Calle Corazon; Entrance to the Frida Kahlo Museum; daily evening tequila tastings; enhanced evening turndown service with homemade candy; local and international calls; bicycle rentals; and a 20% discount on spa services.
