One of the Finest Playa del Carmen Resorts in the Mayan Riviera

A Quintana Roo Mexican Beach Resort

Our Mayan paradise in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, is nestled between lush tropical gardens rich in flora and fauna, a pristine white sand beach and the indescribable turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea. Among the most picturesque accommodations in Playa del Carmen, the Mahekal Beach Resort is a beach front luxury hotel with exquisite hotel accommodations, opulent spa services, and exciting Mayan excursions to the nearby ancient ruins. Formerly the Shangri La Caribe, we have provided the perfect getaway since 1982. Our resort welcomes guests to our unique 4 star hotel, with thatched roof palapas and spacious, oceanfront rooms featuring private terraces or balconies. The resort is located on the Caribbean Sea with gorgeous beaches on the outskirts of Playa del Carmen along the Riviera Maya. Convenient to the shops and restaurants of 5th Avenue, or La Quinta as it is known locally, there is never a shortage of fun, sun, and luxury while staying in our Mexican beach resort.

Rich in history and memories, the activities and accommodations available to our guests provide an inexplicable feeling and a magical vacation experience. Be in harmony with this beautiful Mayan region by staying with us at the MAHÉKAL Beach Resort. MAHÉKAL is the Spanish pronunciation for Magical - over the last year, our staff continues working on refreshing the resort to improve your experience while retaining its genuine charm and warmth. Our gracious staff works hard to maintain the soul of one of the Riviera Maya’s last truly authentic beachfront palapa-roofed resorts. Experience the magic of MAHÉKAL for yourself!

MAHÉKAL BEACH RESORT has held on to its natural legacy of sea and jungle, and offers a vast array of treasures and amenities to guests looking for secluded accommodations in Playa del Carmen. Whether enjoying Mexico for unparalleled weddings in Playa del Carmen or simply to experience the rich history of the Yucatan Peninsula, you simply must discover our resort's unique lodging experience in the heart of the Riviera Maya for yourself. Indulge in delicious cuisine, practice the most exciting aquatic sports, or rest in a hammock while watching the palms rock to the rhythm of the Caribbean breeze.

We eagerly look forward to welcoming you in person to our Mayan Riviera hotel’s location!
