10 Reasons to Book Direct at Mahekal Beach Resort

More than a resort, Mahekal Beach Resort is an authentic Mexican experience. While Airbnb offers unique homes in Playa del Carmen, there is a certain level of service that only an oceanfront resort like Mahekal can provide. If you’re wondering why it pays to book direct at our Mexican resort hotel, look no further than some of the exclusive amenities that offer a relaxing, rejuvenating experience.

Rely on the service of our seasoned Guest Experience team.

Mahekal Beach Resort has a long and distinguished history in Playa del Carmen. Rely on our Guest Experience team to recommend authentic and safe experiences not advertised on tourism websites, including the best tours and the best local guides.

Find serenity at Revive Spa at Mahekal.

Imitating the philosophy of the Mayans, Revive Spa is laid out in a round configuration set in lush tropical gardens. Each spa treatment is designed to the tailored needs of each guest, and includes massages, facials and skin treatments.

Hit the beach.

Nothing completes a trip to Playa del Carmen more than 800 feet of soft-sand beaches and turquoise Caribbean water. Boasting the longest uninterrupted stretch of beach in the area, Mahekal Beach Resort offers thatched-roof cabanas and lounge chairs, perfect for catching a balmy tropical breeze and enjoying a cocktail.

Learn to scuba dive.

Take advantage of one of the most experienced dive shops in Playa del Carmen. Learn to scuba dive, or take a refresher course, and even go deep at a famous dive site with our experienced instructors, available only when you book direct at a full-service resort like Mahekal Beach Resort.

Relax at one of the resorts’ several pools.

A standout among Playa del Carmen resorts, each pool at Mahekal Beach Resort offers a soothing tropical experience. Whether at the beachfront Las Olas pool with its nightly happy hour or the Itzi pool that serves exiting cocktails from the poolside bar, kick back, relax and soak up the sun.

Enjoy an authentic Mayan meal.

Experience how food was prepared and eaten in ancient times at Mahekal Beach Resort’s Mayan Culinary Casita. Chefs who speak the Mayan language and are skilled in traditional Mayan cooking styles serve up handmade tortillas, traditional lime and chicken soup, and spicy and aromatic peppers that will make this meal one that is not soon forgotten.

Sample the catch of the day.

An unmatched foodie experience, this fish-to-fork specialty takes place twice a week when local fishermen dock at the resort for Executive Chef Nerey to make his selection. Try everything from fresh grouper, tuna and blonde fish to lobster and octopus.

Cool off with homemade helado.

Homemade helado (ice cream) is served by Ice Cream Corner manager Cesar. Stop by for a traditional scoop of chocolate or vanilla, or more exotic flavors like mojito and Maracyua (passion fruit).

Take home an authentic Mexican souvenir.

Take a piece of Mexico home when you shop the Mahekal boutique. Sourced from Mexico’s many diverse regions, find arts and crats, handbags and jewelry, including popular Otomi embroidery, Alebrije sculptures, milagritos, black clay pottery, brown glass and more.

Rest assured.

The most important benefit of booking and staying with Mahekal Beach Resort is your safety. From the uniformed drivers who pick you up from Cancun Airport and bring you to the hotel to our membership with the Quintana Roo Tourism Association and the 24-hour security guards at the resort, every system is in place to ensure that all you have to do is enjoy our laid-back Mexican way of life.
