Royal Hideaway Playacar Resort, Mexico

This all-inclusive adults only hotel is a haven of luxury and relaxation, perfect for busy couples who want to escape to a slower pace of life. The Royal Hideaway Playacar Resort has renowned awards coming out of its ears, and it’s easy to see why!

This Mexican gem boasts a whopping six restaurants, all featuring exquisite cuisine prepared by some of the world’s top chefs. Seasoned foodies can even opt for the exclusive Chef’s Table experience and enjoy a gourmet twelve course tasting menu, prepared by the resort’s Executive Chef, Eugenio Villafaña.

After the gut-busting dinner experience you might need to swim off those calories in one of the resort’s six luxurious swimming pools – but remember to wait twenty minutes before you take a dip! The resort’s main pool is a sprawling infinity-edged lagoon that’s flanked with palm trees and looks out across the gorgeous Playa Del Carmen, though those guests looking for a bit more peace and quiet can opt for the aptly named ‘Relax Pool’, which is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the resort and is the perfect spot for a quiet swim and sunbathe.
