The Viceroy Riviera Maya is a luxury beachside resort located just outside Playa del Carmen on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula.
This boutique resort has just 41 villas nestled among the tropical plants on the beachfront. The villas have been decorated in a simple Mayan style with Palapa roofs, dark wood canopy beds and lots of natural rattan furniture. Each has a private patio with a hammock and plunge pool and sweeping ocean or jungle garden views.
The hotel has its own private stretch of beach, including a pier from which you can easily snorkel past the break waters. The dining ranges from fresh seafood and local ingredients to the Coral Grill which serves grilled and barbeque dishes along with wood-fired pizzas.
Activities available either on-site or nearby include golf, horse riding, fishing, windsurfing, kite-surfing, nature walks, tennis and jungle tours. Or visit the many nearby landmarks and ancient cities and ruins on guided excursions.
Enjoy diving from the Viceroy with colourful corals and a variety of marine life. Cenotes or inland fresh water caves, certainly give a unique experience should you wish to try something different.
