Mahekal Beach Resort

Mahekal Beach Resort

Striving to make its namesake a reality, this resort provides a “magical” stay for its guests. The resort features a few very unique characteristics that separate them from other resorts, like the palapa-roofed buildings and the lack of telephones, televisions, and radios in the guestroom to remove guests from their chaotic lives and promote pure relaxation. After recently undergoing a $10 million renovation, this property is even grander than ever.

Mahekal Resort is a good choice for guests looking to let loose a bit, as there is a pretty good selection of late-night spots to pick from. Mamitas Lounge is one such after-hours destination, though the area as a whole is where you'll tend to find excellent bars, dance clubs, and more. If you're organizing for some special occasion, or if you're traveling as a group, this helpful lodging makes the process a bit less of a hassle.

Positioned in Playa del Carmen, northeast of downtown Playa del Carmen, Mahekal Beach Resort happily welcomes visitors who are interested in basing their vacation in this part of the city or the surrounding area.


Mahekal Beach Resort has 122 grass thatched-roof bungalows divided into Garden View, Ocean View, and Ocean Front palapas. All rooms are comfortable and oversized with a style that is bohemian gypsy in style with Mexican accents. Rooms are air conditioned but do not have telephones, televisions, or radios so that guests can truly escape from it all without any distractions, perhaps by relaxing on the hammock found on each patio.

Mahekal Resort is a somewhat large property featuring 122 units. An enticing amount of options and ample space to roam make this large property a hit with visitors who never want a dull moment to pass. This resort has been given a rating of 4 stars, for a number of reasons, including overall quality, style, and more.
