There's lodging for every taste and budget here, from giant all-inclusive luxury resorts to small family-run cabanas on the beach. Most resorts are in remote areas. If your resort doesn’t provide good shuttle service, you’ll want to rent a car to visit local sights or restaurants. Staying at beach areas in Playa del Carmen, Akumal, or Tulum will allow you to explore on foot from your hotel. Smaller hotels and inns are often family-run. Stay in one of them and mix with the locals.

Built for ecological sustainability, Las Ranitas (the Little Frogs) underwent a full remodel in 2012 yet still generates its own electricity through wind-powered generators and solar panels. Each chic and very private room has an ocean view, gorgeous tile headboards, and fabrics from Oaxaca. Terraces overlook gardens and ocean, and jungle walkways lead to the breathtaking beach. Yoga classes are held in the new fitness studio, and several swimming pools have been added to the property. There are 11 categories of rooms, so choose carefully.
This funky boutique hotel melds together retro vintage with a touch of modern, starting with the red vinyl couches in the lobby all the way up to the exceedingly cool rooftop pool bar, where tables and chairs wade in the water. Whitewashed concrete walls lead to stylish rooms stocked with basics like a TV, minibar, and safe. Exposed lightbulbs surround bathroom mirrors, creating a Broadway dressing-room feel next to Jacuzzi tubs, frosted glass doors, dual rain showerheads, and wood-plank floors imported from Brazil. Hotel guests receive 20% discount at the sushi restaurant on the ground floor.
