Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort

Last updated: 13 November, 2022

What’s so great about the Playa Grand Hyatt? This big, blocky hotel offers high-end beachside luxury and five-star amenities at a mid-range price tag. And it’s right in the heart of Playa del Carmen.

The beach is two minutes away, Playa’s pulsing clubs five, yet the Hyatt’s big, Scandi-minimalist rooms (glass walls, warm woods, light polished stone and sea or jungle views) feel ocean-breeze tranquil. They are set in a large open complex of peaceful patios, paddling and swimming pools and al fresco restaurants.

The low-lit, lambent, cenote-inspired spa is Playa’s plushest and there’s a kids club and child-friendly pools.

Surrounding area

With pristine beaches to the north and south and a lively urban centre, Playa del Carmen offers the intimate back-to-nature feel of Tulum and Puerto Morelos and Cancun’s urban amenities and nightlife – albeit on a smaller scale. The town is close to Cozumel island (for reef dives) and the big Xcaret and Xel-Ha adventure parks.

The party scene, beach and a wealth of shopping, restaurant and bars are within a few minutes’ walk. Yet with public spaces fully open to nature and wall-to-ceiling glass everywhere, the hotel feels integrated with nature, despite its huge size and modern urban look.
