Your Destination

Located on the stunning beaches of Mexico's pristine Riviera Maya, the Royal Hideaway Playacar seamlessly harmonies world-class service with faultless style. The beaches of Playa del Carmen are truly remarkable, but there are also plenty of eclectic shops, restaurants and bars away from the sand to keep you entertained- the resort is within walking distance of the popular 5th Avenue. Scuba diving and snorkeling tours to nearby cenotes (freshwater sinkholes) are very popular - the water's cool and clear and some cenotes are part of larger cave systems with fascinating stalactites and stalagmites.

Royal Hideaway Playacar 5*

The recently renovated Royal Hideaway Playacar offers an ultra-luxurious experience, and is the first all-inclusive to be accepted as a member of the Leading Hotels of the World consortium. Set on a coveted beachfront spot just five minutes south of the lively Playa del Carmen, the elegant Colonial-style property is adults-only and exclusively all-inclusive. Guests' every whim and desire is taken care of here with world-class service, a whopping 6 swimming pools and 6 dining destinations to match, and - of course - a spa that is aptly named 'The Retreat'. You can easily do a whole lot of nothing - sipping on top-notch drinks all day by the infinity pool and meandering through the 13 acres of manicured gardens, or you can partake in a myriad of activities arranged by the hotel, from scuba diving to tennis lessons.

This is place where nothing succeeds like excess, and too much of a good thing - as Mae West maintained - can be wonderful.
