A Semi-Inclusive Playa del Carmen Resort

Mahekal Beach Resort

The town of Playa Del Carmen has a unique way of doing just about everything. From live music venues to trendy unique dining and dancing spots along 5th Avenue, if you’re looking for an authentic Mexican experience on the incomparable Caribbean coast, Playa Del Carmen is the place to be. Nestled between dense Riviera Maya jungle and 800 feet of pristine Playa del Carmen beach, the newly transformed Mahekal Beach Resort brings the Playa del Carmen resort experience to an unprecedented new level.

The newly reimagined resort retains its authentic concept, blending Mexican tradition with design-forward details. The resort's recently rethought guestrooms and lobby highlight the makeover, while new pools, restaurants and bars create a welcoming paradise. Located in the heart of Playa del Carmen -- rated the number one destination in Mexico by TripAdvisor -- Mahekal Beach Resort provides an unforgettable Caribbean experience for every guest.

After its three-year, $18 million re-imagination and renewal, the beachfront Playa Del Carmen hotel provides an entirely new but incredibly authentic experience. The renovation resulted in an additional 74 individual palapa-style bungalows, bringing our hotel in Playa del Carmen's room count to 196, including Premium suites just steps from the beach and Standard rooms nestled in the Riviera Maya jungle.

The newly refreshed resort includes an array of on-site features, including Revive Spa at Mahekal, with individual and couples' treatment rooms, women and men's locker rooms, and complete with indoor and outdoor relaxation lounges plus a new fitness facility with all-new aerobic and strength training equipment. The resort's newest restaurant is Fuego Restaurante y Cantina, an oceanfront "Tulum-style" restaurant and cantina that utilizes a wood-burning oven. Newly crafted wedding, meeting and event venues span 4,500 square feet, providing dynamic, flexible room for unforgettable events. The recently revitalized Vida Aquática Dive Center offers expert-led dive tours, lessons and expeditions, and a soon-to-be-revamped gift shop promises Mahekal-brand beachwear and unique, locally procured art and gifts alongside the resort's enhanced artisan pottery hut.

Inspired by “GypSet Style,” Mahekal’s interior design embodies the bohemian gypsy lifestyle with colorful Mexican accents – including standout Missoni-esque patterns in the resort's eclectic lobby and fireplace seating area, along with bright orange ping pong tables and cobalt blue billiard tables in the main lobby bar and activity center.

Truly Magical

We celebrated our wedding at Mahekal with 31 of our closest friends and family earlier this month, most stayed at the resort, some stayed elsewhere. Needless to say, after welcome cocktails, dinners, ceremony and reception, they all wished they had booked at Mahekal.Our experience was nothing less than first rate. From the Wedding Coordinator, Helia Corona who patiently guided us to our perfect wedding thru emails and photos over several months, to Hugo Soto who arranged and organized everything we needed on site at our wedding events, it was truly a magical experience. The attention to detail was incredible and the service we received was fantastic. Hugo and Helia really went above and beyond. You could imagine our nervousness since we were planning a wedding remotely from New York for over a year! But the entire weekend was everything we could have asked for and more.
