Welcome to Mahekal Beach Resort
The coastal resort town of Playa del Carmen has a unique way of doing just about everything. From live music venues to trendy dining and dancing spots along 5th Avenue, if you’re looking for a different Mexican experience on the incomparable Caribbean coast, Playa del Carmen is the place to be. Accessible to the ancient Mayan sites of Tulum, Coba. Chichen Itza, and the famed eco-archaeological park of Xcaret, adventures are only a short drive away. And don't forget the vibrant marine life, underwater caverns or cenotes, and nearby coral reefs - all of which make this area a world class diving and snorkeling destination.
Nestled between dense Riviera Maya jungle and spanning 920 feet of pristine beach, the Mahekal Beach Resort takes the Playa del Carmen experience to a true authentic level, embodying a Swiss Family Robinson feel, with its authentic bungalow-style accommodations on the beach, or viewing the turquoise water or in the resorts lush gardens, blending Mexican tradition with design-forward details. The resort's guestrooms and lobby highlight touches of Mayan culture, while pools, restaurants, and bars create a welcoming vibrant feeling - a combination unlike anywhere else in Mexico.
This vacation destination featuring refreshing pools and sun-drenched beachfront, also includes an array of on-site features, including Revive Spa at Mahekal, with individual and couples' treatment rooms, relaxation lounges plus fitness facility. The resort's most popular 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 and memorable locations for your wedding ceremony and photos. The most trusted dive center in Playa del Carmen is on-site - our Dive Center offers expert-led dive and snorkeling tours, lessons and expeditions. New additions in the last year include an on-site ice cream shop, and a boutique featuring Mahekal-brand beachwear and unique, locally procured art and gifts, situated alongside the resort's artisan pottery hut.
But perhaps the most endearing side of this Playa del Carmen resort is its staff. Guests return year after year and catch-up with their favorite waiters and bartenders. Let us welcome you on a memorable, magical escape.
