This review covers both Las Palapas but also Mahekal, which is next door & I understand that they are now under the same American ownership; the report will also be put on the TA Mahekal site. We booked the accommodation of a quiet Garden View room at Las Palapas on a b&b basis towards the end of 2013, but we... More

My wife and I were unsure about Palapas, but when we got there we were very, very pleased with our selection and will return. Highlights: It's on the beach and the beach is uncrowded The rooms and bathrooms are very spacious The grounds are so nice to stroll with lighted walks, palms, no bugs, and few people. The food was... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week in March and really enjoyed it. The best thing is the location - beachfront in a nice area to swim but only a 5 minute walk to the main strip of 5th Ave. The grounds are very lush with lots of greenery so you really feel like you are in a... More

My daughter and I recently enjoyed a five night stay at the lovely Hotel Las Palapas. I have been to PDC before but stayed at one of the large all-inclusive resorts in the area. We enjoyed the Las Palapas experience much more for the ambience, walking proximity to shopping and restaurants in Playa del Carmen, and the fact that it... More

My husband and I have been staying at hotel las palapas for several years and enjoy the unique, serene, beautiful experience this resort offers. Las Palapas is a gem - there are so few places like it left, where nature abounds and provides an enveloping comfort to its guests. Additionally, the staff provide hospitality and service that is warm and... More

I stayed at Las Palapas at the end of February for 6 days. If you're not already aware, Las Palapas and Mahekal next door are now owned by one company who is merging them. I have stayed as several all inclusives in the area as well as the Luna Blue in Playa so I have tried many different accommodations. On... More

I loved this place! I was looking for a place to take my mum on her first trip to Mexico. I did not want a giant complex of a hotel that looks like what you would get in Las Vegas. I wanted a beautiful, relaxing place on the beach...and this is exactly what we got. I love that they have... More

I don't like to sit down the pool, and just chill, but when I went to this place, it was amazing to start the day just down the immense beach before an excursion, or coming back from it, and just chill at the beach. the night activities weren't many in the period we stayed there, however, that wasn't the aim...

I have been coming to this great place for over 10 years now. Having checked every other place out, I can say this is the best. Lots of jungle, birds, quiet, beauty, yet right on the beach. Every time we stay here, there are other tourists who walk along the beach in front of our hotel and end up coming... More
