Viceroy Riviera Maya

Romantic Caribbean Gem

Viceroy Riviera Maya

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.

Hotel Tip

At La Marea Restaurant, indulge in delicacies like caviar-topped swordfish sashimi while sipping a high-end tequila.

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.

Beautiful resort. Customer service is over the top-will definitely go back. Virtuoso provided an upgrade when we arrived and an extra breakfast for our group. Thank you! This was a mother daughter trip and we will remember as a very special time for us.

With our change of plans, the resort was 100% accommodating. Could not have asked for more. First class operation.

I was looking for a beautiful, relaxing retreat and I found it at the Viceroy. The Viceroy is amazing--the service was impeccable and the accommodations were beautiful and really quite peaceful. I only wish I could have stayed longer. I highly recommend it.

Ultimate relaxation and delicious food

This is a perfect resort if you love delicious gourmet food and exceptional service! Very relaxing. Adult only. Jungle setting. Only 41 rooms. Beach is not that great as there are rocks and a lot of resorts nearby. However pool is amazing and relaxing. Perfect couple getaway!
