A boutique Playa del Carmen hotel between buzzing Fifth Avenue and the beach, with a rooftop oasis and infinity pool

Soak up the sun in style at a sleek base in Playa del Carmen, ideally perched between the beach and buzzing Fifth Avenue. The Fives Downtown Hotel & Residences, Curio Collection by Hilton has garnered a loyal following, and won itself a top ranking on TripAdvisor, for its chic and inviting vibe. A huge part of its appeal is its aesthetic, pairing classic elements, including traditional Mexican details, with contemporary lines and colors that keep things fresh and up to date. Don’t miss the incredible landscaping in the central courtyard, with a vertical garden, or the innovative layout of PuroBeach Urban Oasis rooftop lounge.

To focus on the fabulous design of the accommodations and common areas, however, is to neglect the ways that the staff ensures that your stay feels – and not only looks – incredible. To make your stay as memorable as possible, they’ll pour you refreshing cocktails in the tequila bar, brew the perfect cup of coffee in the café, whip up incredible Italian dishes at Mercatto, and invite you to design your own welcome amenities and minibar. In the unlikely event that you ever want to leave, they’ll also happily arrange day trips elsewhere, whether the cenotes of Tulum or the ruins of Chichen Itza.
