The Viceroy Riviera Maya occupies an idyllic stretch of white sand a short drive from Playa del Carmen. There are 30 individual thatched stone villas, each with a private plunge pool, open air shower and tranquil private terrace. Exclusive and discreet, it's an ideal place for a honeymoon or simply to relax in peace and quiet.
Each villa is enclosed in a garden of jungle-like foliage, very much in keeping with the area's native vegetation. Inside, the rooms are exquisitely decorated in relaxed, contemporary style, with wooden furniture, high-quality textiles and carefully chosen pieces of art and sculpture.
Formally Tides, the hotel has become part of the Viceroy chain and while its philosophy and ambience remain unchanged, improvements including a new restaurant and boutique and a newly remodelled terrace with a reading lounge were unveiled in early 2012. The villas have also received a minor facelift to restore them to the pristine condition you'd expect from a brand new hotel.
There is an inviting pool designed to imitate the shape of a lagoon, two restaurants serving gourmet cuisine with a seafood focus, and a private pier on which you can choose to take your spa treatments accompanied by the soothing soundtrack of the ocean.
