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 nice choice for night owls looking to go out after dinner, as there is a nice range of late-night spots to choose from. Mamitas Lounge is one such after-hours destination, but the area as a whole is a place people flock to for bars, dance clubs, and more. If you are trying to organize a conference or are traveling as a group, this hospitable accommodation can make the organizing process a bit less troublesome.

Situated in Playa del Carmen, northeast of downtown Playa del Carmen, Mahekal Beach Resort is a great choice for guests who want to stay in this part of the city and nearby areas.


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.

With 122 rooms, Mahekal Resort is a fairly large location. A multitude of options and the opportunity to join social events make this large resort a favorite among visitors who never want a dull moment to pass. For its overall merit, we've awarded this resort a rating of 4 stars.
