Playa del Carmen scored two hotels in the top 20 best hotels in the world list

Organizing our vacations to Cancun, Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen or anywhere else in the world is an exciting process. We look for the best (beach) spots and the hotel category we need (all-inclusive, spa, beach, family, etc). But our recurrent question is “how do I know I am paying for what I will get”? This is especially the case for luxury travels. When we go on holiday and want to treat ourselves, sometimes we have to pay high prices to do so. But, how do we know that prices equal incredible service quality and superb amenities?  We can review past customers’ reviews, but we always remain with the doubt that reviews can be very subjective. At Mayan Explore, we give you our honest opinion (and experience) about how to organize the best vacation of your lives in Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya, but some extra tips are always helpful. And here is when we need to ask experts for their opinion.

This month Business Insider published a brand new list of the best 26 hotels in the world, by combining a few other listings. We were happy to see that Mexico scored five hotels in the top 20 and two of them were in the Riviera Maya, enhancing the experience of luxury vacations in Playa del Carmen. This is what they had two say about them:

Rosewood Mayakoba (#4)

“Regarded as one of the best luxury properties in Mexico, the Rosewood Mayakoba puts guests in close proximity to the Yucatan's gorgeous white sand beaches, cenotes, and ancient Mayan ruins. The hotel has luxurious suites that either overlook the ocean or a private quiet lagoon, and are filled with high-end amenities like butler service and private plunge pools.

Banyan Tree Mayakoba (#19)

“Located on Mexico's gorgeous Riviera Maya, the Banyan Tree Mayakoba is renowned for its incredible service and its location, which allows guests to access the beach and the unique ecosystem of mangroves, lagoons, and dunes.

Mayan Explore decided to make Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya its home because we fell in love with the area. The view of the beaches, cenotes, pyramids, fresh water lakes, fauna and flora sure make this place a paradisiacal holiday destination. However, it is even more reassuring to know that we can offer our customers the best beaches in the world as well as the best hotels on earth. Are you ready to spend your luxury vacations in Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya?
