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 vacationers hoping for some after dinner fun, since there is a pretty good variety of late-night options in the area. Mamitas Lounge is one such after-hours location, though the area as a whole has a reputation for their shows, lounges, and late-night eateries. If you're organizing a conference or are traveling with a group, this hospitable lodging makes the organizing process a bit less worrisome.

Positioned in Playa del Carmen, northeast of downtown Playa del Carmen, Mahekal Beach Resort offers a warm welcome to guests who want to stay in this part of the city or an adjacent 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 fairly large property featuring a total of 122 units. Special features and ample space to roam make this sizable property a hit with those who want access to endless entertainment. In terms of quality, we've rated this resort a 4 star rating.
