Very nice hotel, perfect view from room an restaurant. We traveld with our Three Children age 2,5 and 7 and they loved the Place. The ocean was perfect for them and the beach was very nice. Nice restaurant with Everything you need and the staff is very friendly. We loved the Place and hope to come back some day. The... More

We arrived in Almaplena which was our 3rd stop after Tulum and Bacalar (both fantastic). The place is really beautiful! Whoever did the decor has super nice taste. The rooms were very well appointed and someone took the time to really think about what it is to stay in a hotel room. A big surprise for us was when the... More

We believe that Almaplena ticks most of the boxes for those travelers looking for, what some might say, the Tulum of yesteryear. Remotely located directly on the beach south of Mahahual, the Italian owners are to be complimented on the resort's beautiful architecture and the well appointed accommodations of their resort. As an Eco Resort, most comforts are available from... More

A large group of us cruised on NCL in January 2016. We purchased a beach day at Almaplena vs. taking a cruise excursion. What a fantastic decision! This property is amazing and the staff are equally amazing! The owners Monica & her husband were extremely accommodating and flexible. The resort is secluded and quiet just perfect for a day of...

My husband and I spent a lovely day at Almaplena. We took a taxi (cost included in resort fee) to the resort. The ride was about 30 minutes. The resort was remote and had all the ambience of a Mexican resort. The staff was very laid back. There were only about 8 people on the beach/in lounges. It was very... More

The food was lovely and a great continental... More

Arriving by car, we were met by help to carry our bags. The room has a large bed with ceiling fan, a couch with view of the sea, large bathroom (lots of hot water) and a patio with chairs and hammock. The restaurant serves all day and the staff is friendly. They will deliver to your room or beach, where... More

Owned by a friendly Frenchman and staffed with helpful but not in your face service, this is a good choice for those who want to have a nice, quiet stay on a beautiful beach. It's 8 km south of town but it just keeps away the hordes. Having a car is recommended. Note that this hotel is VERY close to... More

We spent 2 nights here during our honeymoon in Mexico. The rooms are very elegant and clean. All white with a mosquito net surrounding the bed. There are no TVs anywhere in the property, It is a great place to relax and unplug if you want to although they do have WiFi. We second another reviewer, the rooms can get... More
