What We Love

  • Newly remodeled, this boutique retreat's bohemian vibe is situated right on the shores of Playa del Carmen.

Things to Know

  • Perfectly located with palapa-styled accommodations and hammocks on the balcony. 
Located in the heart of Playa del Carmen, this beachfront boutique mixes an authentic Mayan-inspired experience with a boho-chic vibe, creating one amazing vacay experience for you. The palapa-style guestrooms include your own private terrace, a hammock for some serious napping and a TV-free room so you can really unplug (dont worry - you can access the state-of-the-art Wi-Fi system.) With the beach just steps away and the swaying palms soothing your spirit, this escape from reality will knock your flip flops off.

    Wonderful resort/excellent staff

    This was our first time staying at this resort and we would definitely go back. The staff was excellent from the minute we arrived. In particular Angel was fantastic. The palapas add a special charm to the grounds. Food was very good, we loved all the fresh fruit and juices in the morning! My son and I took a diving lesson and then went on a dive which was one of the if not the coolest thing we have done. We would definitely recommend this resort and would stay there again. Thank you Mahekal for all the memories.

    Wonderful stay at Mahekal

    We stayed one week at Mahekal and were satisfied as usual, this was our third stay. The hotell is very good! We stayed in a Treehouse Palapa and the sorrundings around the room felt like a djungle - just perfect! We had breakfast and lunch at Fuego. The food is very good! And the service is even better, with Enrique, Moises, Antonio, Rene and Sergio.

    Above and Beyond

    Outstanding is my starting word! This was my second time visiting Mahekal and it was head and shoulders better than the first - they just keep getting better and better. The Management and Front Desk staff, every so gracious and accommodating. Never got tired of the genuine smiles and friendly service. The dinning was so good we didn't want to go into town. Olas, Jose, Nichoas, Jeremias, Andres, Kimberly, Juan, and Karen (my favorite) were all so good to us. Hats off to them! We felt special each and everyday!

    Simply outstanding!!

    Such an amazing place! Great service, extremely friendly staff, great food, clean and perfect for families!! In about a week, I have been to the Revive Spa twice. The treatments and service are outstanding. Both Marsol and Nayeli were great and very friendly. It is also a 3 minutes walk from Fifth Avenue (A must see pedestrian avenue). But most of all, the staff makes you feel like home! Your experience is definitely their no. 1 priority.
