Playa del Carmen is the trendiest spot on the Yucatán Peninsula and faces east, bathing in the sunshine on the shores of the Caribbean. The town’s beaches are packed with chic Europeans and being a popular cruise ship stop, this resort remains lively throughout the year. The nearest airport is Cancún’s international airport, and the town has easy access to Cozumel, Tulum and Cobá.

The Acanto Hotel and Condominiums is brilliantly located in the heart of the lively town of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It sits on a quiet cobblestone street just steps away from all the action, including restaurants, shops and nightlife. This petite and peaceful hotel is also just a block from the beautiful beach. The Acanto features luxury rooms, great common space, a warm courtyard and a great rooftop terrace with views of the Caribbean Sea.

Suites
The luxury suite accommodations found at the Acanto hotel are private and secure. The suites are beautifully designed and decorated with a full kitchen and stainless steel appliances. There is also a comfy lounge and a spacious bedroom in each suite.

Room Tip: If you can, book one of the rooms that offer a private rooftop terrace for romantic evenings. If you are a light sleeper, ask for an inside facing bedroom to be sure of a great night’s sleep.

Grounds
The courtyard and grounds at the Acanto Hotel and Condominiums are gorgeous and well-manicured. There is a beautiful pool, and a rooftop Jacuzzi where you can relax and suntan while enjoying the view of the Ocean.

A complimentary continental breakfast is available every morning. Take it up to the rooftop or in the pretty courtyard. The Acanto also has arrangements with local beach clubs and restaurants (the good ones!) for its guests to get great discounts.

Local Area
If you can drag yourself away from the beach and pool, there are plenty of amazing trips to try. Battle through the rainforest, head over to the water parks or dive and snorkel the local reefs which are excellent, and are home to rays, moray eels, sea turtles and a huge variety of corals. Playa del Carmen has also been the destination of PGA Tours, so it boasts a selection of very good golf courses.

At Luxury Travel Diary we love boutique hotels as the service and care taken by the staff is often more personal than you would enjoy at a larger hotel. Staff at Acanto share true Mexican hospitality. This, the location and the luxurious rooms are reasons enough to try Acanto Hotel and Condominiums next time you travel to Playa del Carmen. You will not be disappointed…
