Our Opinion

Limited restaurants with below average food make it hard to recommend this hotel. However, the lush jungle foliage throughout the resort adds a nice touch to this quaint hotel. Close to Playa del Carmen and its shopping and restaurants.

Reef Playacar

The Reef Playacar is made up of quaint small villas with a Mexican-Caribbean flare, separated by winding paths and surrounded by lush tropical flowers and gardens. On the beach of Playa del Carmen, blessed with miles of unspoiled, warm Caribbean crystal clear waters and miles of white sand at your feet.

Location: Directly on the beach, 5 minutes to the town of Playa del Carmen, 45 minutes to Cancun, 60 minutes from the airport.
