Old meets new
Posted Feb 19, 2015 on Hotels
If you are looking for something different, this is the place. gorgeous setting in mangrove, yet steps to the beach. The renovated rooms are high end design meets rustic minimalist. Beds are super comfy. The landscape is just so peaceful. Stress melted the minute I got there. The beach is perfectly situated, with lots of chairs, tables, palapas umbrellas, great service... lunch can be eaten beach side.
Food: they try! We like Mayan cuisine, and they prepare things that would make a more timid visitor step outside their bounds (corn mold stuffed Calamari...yum!) But, there was some hit and miss, and we ended up eating in town most nights. Breakfast is good, solid.
Some would complain about Mamitas Beach Club's thumping music wafting through the air, but unless you are going to be in your room napping all day, it's nothing. Construction next door? Try finding one hotel in Play that doesn't have construction next to it at this point. así es la vida!
They are doing their own renovations for the rest of the units May-Nov, so get there before or after.
