Honeymooning in Playa Del Carmen: Mahekal Beach Resort
The resort offers a variety of accommodations from the treehouse rooms nestled in the property’s tropical garden to the beach haciendas with your own plunge pool. Each room features its own private balcony with a set of hammocks for the perfect afternoon siesta. Sitting along nearly 1,000 feet of Caribbean shoreline, Mahekal Beach Resort was once two resorts but merged into one sprawling complex. With four pools each with a unique vibe, four dining options and three bars, you will never want to leave the resort!
Start your day off right with breakfast at Las Olas Restaurant and Bar. Enjoy a buffet offering fresh fruits, huevos rancheros and even breakfast quesadillas made right in front of you. From there, head over to the Itzi Pool and take in the tropical jungle feel with towering palms surrounding the edges. Cool off with a Coco Loco cocktail and soak in the warm Quintana Roo sun.
As the sun goes down, make a reservation at Fuego Restaurante y Cantina for unique farm-to-fork creations from the “Tulum-style” wood burning oven. Or head to Cocina at the heart of the resort for a buffet of cuisines from Yucatan, Mexican and Latin America cultures.
