Our Opinion

Great place that has the makings and elements of a luxury hotel. Amazing food options and great service offered by all staff members. The music and noise level tends to run relatively high at times. Despite it getting relatively busy around the beach during the day, staff members have no problem accommodating guests with extra beach chairs.

Royal Hideaway Playacar by Occidental

The 'Royal treatment' is not just a phrase - the signature service of the incredibly luxurious Royal Hideaway by Occidental is a place where service & style come together with complete, grand fashion. Upon arrival, you will be welcomed and indulged with attentive service, as you reside in luxurious villa accommodations of spacious rooms, private terraces and exquisite marble baths with Jaccuzis. Representing a fusion of Spanish & Mexican architecture - winding rivers, waterfalls and fountains connect the villas to the main building, while surrounded by the most beautiful stretch of beach on the Yucatan Peninsula. This resort is where everything around you, from service to food - is nothing but the best!

Directly on the beautiful Playacar beach, 5 minutes from Playa del Carmen, 45 minutes from the airport.
