This is our fifth trip to Playacar Palace and each trip is better than the last, despite the mostly rainy days. This being the first time we had bad weather at this time of the year. This resort in the Palace chain is very special to us as we made so many friends there with other guests and the staff who are always there with a smile and “my pleasure”. We love the size with 200 rooms and proximity to Playa Del Carmen 5th avenue filled with shops, restaurants and bars. It is a vibrant area with lots of activity. The beach is one of the best in the Mayan Riviera mainly due to Cozumel blocking the big waves. Cozumel ferry is a 1 minute walk.
The resort is special because it starts with the leadership of the GM David Rubio who leads from the front picking up empty plates and anything that is out of order while on his daily tour. It travels down to his managers who all follow suit and ensure all their guests have a fabulous experience.
All renovations are complete for the near future with only decorating, new furniture and painting to be done throughout the resort. (more…)
We stayed on Isla Mujeres mid June 2013 and on a very hot day while driving the rented 57 Chevy Golf Carts, we heard Bob Marley playing on the side of the road. As we pulled up, we found this little gem called The Joint. (more…)
