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 Sea, Playa Del Carmen is the place to be. Nestled between dense Riviera Maya jungle and Playa del Carmen's largest stretch of beach, spanning 800 pristine feet, the newly transformed Mahekal Beach Resort brings the Playa del Carmen beach hotel experience to an unprecedented new level.

Experience the new Mahekal Beach Resort with the same authentic concept, only better.

Following the completion of the final phase of the resort’s three-year in early January, 2016, $16 million re-imagination, the beach front retreat introduces an entirely new experience. The final phase of the resort’s re-imagination began in June 2015, involving the complete restoration of Mahekal Beach Resort’s adjacent sister property, Las Palapas, to create the newest resort in Playa del Carmen, which operates under the Mahekal name. The recent expansion unveiled an additional 74 individual palapa-style bungalows bring the total room count to 196 units; a new Mayan-inspired spa opening in February, 2016, offering 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.s fitness center; an oceanfront, “Tulum-style” wood-burning oven restaurant and cantina; a resort-sized swimming pool and hot tub and adjacent to Fuego Restaurante y Cantina; as well as 4,500 square feet of versatile, newly created wedding, meeting and event space.

Exclusive bungalows with ocean and garden views have been renewed, only two-minutes away from the private, guests-only portion of the beach. Inspired by “GypSet Style,” Mahekal’s interior design embodies the bohemian gypsy lifestyle with colorful Mexican accents – including standout designs like Missoni-esque fabrics in the 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.
