Embrace What's Real at The Reef Playacar

Nestled in the heart of the Riviera Maya on Mexico’s sun-splashed Caribbean coastline, The Reef Playacar Resort & Spa takes a page from the playbook of the ancient Mayan Gods, magically blending the quiet seclusion of a tropical rainforest with the white-hot beauty of one of the world’s most spectacular beaches.

  • Great Experience
    The resort was beautiful and the staff was wonderful. It's a great place for couples and families alike. Lively nightlife till around 10pm and then the action is mostly towards the restaurants which are further away from the rooms. Close to Playa Del Carmen to bike or walk.

  • Loved it
    We loved it! Great location and well put together. Staff was great and made new friends with some of the staff members. They always catered to my wife and I which made us feel important. We certainly will be back soon.

  • Great!
    Happy with my stay, I took a family trip and my family loved the place and the staff was very friendly. The hotel is very well kept and cleaned. I loved the fact that it was very private and safe! I will be back soon :)

  • AWESOME!!!!!
    The hotel is awesome! Love location and the beach. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I was there with my mom a month ago and I am going with my boyfriend for Thanksgiving. I am not the person who likes to go back to the same place, but this hotel was an exception.
