Exclusive, discreet and unashamedly luxurious beach retreat, offering stylish accommodation in individual thatched villas, each with its own private plunge pool.

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.

What our clients say

  • Specific memorable event: Having climbed up the large pyramid at the Mayan site, within the Calakmul biospere, not only did we love the impressive view across the tree canopy, but we were greeted by the amazing sound of 3 groups of howler monkeys calling to each other across the tree tops. The birdlife there was also wondeful to see.  Overall memorable part: the Mexican people - genuinely friendly, helpful and patient.

  • Most Memorable Experience: The visits to sights and cities open our eyes to a culture that is underrated in Europe.  Security is perceived as a problem in Mexico.  Yes there is a noticeable police presence, in comparison with the UK, but we never felt threatened

  • My sister summed it up by saying that there was nothing that she would have changed, the holiday was perfect.  Mexico was a delight, we had never been before, the people sincerely friendly and helpful, the service as great but everything exceeded expectations.  My sister and the children thought that the cenotes were amazing as they were such a surprise but we loved it all.

  • There were many highlights: the beautiful beach on our first morning in Cancun, the boat ride among the flamingos at Celestun, the sight of the Magicians Pyramid at Uxmal and the climb up the Great Pyramid there ( although not the descent, which was very vertiginous!). We loved the city of Merida, and having a Sunday at leisure there was very well planned by Sophie. We walked the Paseo de Montejo, open only to bikes and pedestrians, visited the Museum of Anthropology, then had a late lunch in Santa Lucia park watching the locals dancing. Later we watched them again in the evening dancing opposite the Cathedral in Plaza Mayor. Great fun, we loved it all. We also has a fantastic visit to Ek Balam on our way to Tulum, which was one on our Mayan Archeological highlights.

  • Highlights?: Too many! Probably seeing Uxmal, the Tiger Egret, swimming in Cenotes (various), Chichen-Itza at dawn and visiting Frida Kahlo's house.
