About Us

The pure white sand and turquoise waters are the first indications: This isn’t just an escape, it’s the definition of enchantment. Viceroy Riviera Maya is a Mexican luxury resort nestled in the rainforest of Riviera Maya. Here, in the lush and untamed wild, you’ll stay in seclusion in one of 41 private villas where you’ll enjoy your own private heated plunge pool. Discover complete relaxation and rejuvenation during your nature-filled experience, and find serenity at the full-service spa. Experience all-new features of the resort, including a full redesign of our restaurant, Coral Restaurant + Bar, a brand new pool deck with poolside cabanas, and a new pier with overwater hammocks. Framing it all: white sand beach and ancient cities and ruins that are ripe for exploring. You’ll quickly see why we were recently named the #1 Resort Hotel in Mexico and #20 Top Hotels in the World by Travel + Leisure's World's Best Awards.

Best of the Best

When describing Viceroy Riviera Maya, three words come to mind: sexy, secluded, and sea. Nestled within the dense Yucatán foliage near Playa del Carmen, this eco-chic refuge comprises just 41 thatched-roof villas with plunge pools, outdoor showers, hammocks, and enough space to get lost in (the smallest villa is 1,000 square feet). Accommodations are sprinkled throughout the grounds for the ultimate privacy, and range from jungle view to oceanfront – although you’re never far from the sand and the resort’s private pier. The spa draws upon ancient rituals; the cuisine fuses Mayan and Mediterranean traditions.

Advisor Tip

Join a fun tequila-tasting class and try it bandera style for the colors of the Mexican flag: fresh lime juice (green), followed by tequila (white) and sangria (red). –Carrie Mahoney Charlotte, North Carolina

Health & Safety

Viceroy has always strived to create the best experience for our guests. Now, more than ever, we’re taking that to heart with Viceroy’s Promise of Cleanliness.

This is not a mere aspiration. It’s an action plan. For the wellbeing of our guests, colleagues and communities, our promise is to put our passion and energy into notably increasing the standards of cleanliness at our hotels.

In addition, we’re closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization’s recommendations regarding COVID-19, and will continue to follow their guidelines, as well as those from local health departments.

Viceroy’s Promise of Cleanliness Seal, visible throughout public guest areas and also in the heart of house (“backstage”), is our outward way of saying how much we care about your safety.

Solo Traveler Had a Great Experience

By: Susan


Reviewed on: 21 Aug 2014

I just returned from 5 nights as a solo guest at the Viceroy. I never once felt uncomfortable or less important than the other hotel guests who stayed as couples. In fact, the Viceroy staff were extremely thoughtful to me as a solo traveler. When I arrived, my fabulous villa was tastefully decorated to celebrate my birthday, which was a nice surprise. One evening, I returned from dinner to find a hot bubble bath waiting for me. Everyone was attentive, but not intrusive. The food was very good, and the chef stopped by to introduce herself and offer her flexibility if I had wishes off the menu. When I asked to eat dinner in a quiet place to read my book, the staff always readily agreed without hesitation.
