This Orient-Express hotel lies a little closer to Cancun than the Mayakoba hotels. A rustic, truly “Relais & Chateau” kind of place with a lovely location – the beach is wide and absolutely stunning here, stretches ahead without the bends and bays you find at Mayakoba.
Mexican style comes over with the fabrics and small details, together with white walls and ceilings in dark wood. This authentic feel makes it a fantastic little hideaway with only 63 rooms and a few villas.

Riviera Maya has many other attractions, among which many Mayan archaelogical sites (like Tulum and Coba). Best season is November to April, when it is usually sunny but not too crushingly hot.
