We visited Acanto hotel at the end of March 2013 for the start of our honeymoon.
The hotel was great - the rooms were clean and spacious.
The staff were very helpful and spoke english really well.
The location is amazing - just off the main street in Playa del Carmen.
The cafe next door is great for breakfast, and the owner, Hermes, is a great source of information about things to do locally!
I would definitely stay at this hotel again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Acanto Hotel is part of the Boutique Hotels of Mexico Brand and is Praised by the Media in Travel + Leisure Magazine says "Mexico's Riviera Maya is known for its sprawling resorts, but the new, 27-room Acanto Boutique Hotel proves that low-key simplicity also has a place on the Yucatan peninsula. This hacienda-style property, one block from both the beach and the area's pedestrian-filled Quinta Avenida, is set around a courtyard that's home to a swimming pool lined by chaise lounges and lanterns. Spanish accents influence the interiors, where curved hardwood windows frame views of the Caribbean Sea. A bonus for value seekers: lobby-side Wi-Fi is complimentary, as is access to the hotel's beach club, stocked with chilled towels and fruit for sun-seekers. And be sure to check in with the hotel concierge, who has close connections with nearby tour operators and language-immersion experts.Room to Book:The Penthouse units have sweeping views of the Caribbean from the private rooftop whirlpool.Insider Tip: Sign up for the hotel's cooking course or the mixology lesson, which focuses on Mezcal, the distilled liquor from Mexico's native agave.Frommer's Travel Guide says"In my view, this property is (dare I say it) the most romantic in Playa. There is intimacy and flair and even a sense of isolation. Seven stylish suites endowed with color and texture encircle a pool and softly lit courtyard. Figures of Buddha and Asian decoration add an exotic feel and draw a division between this small enclave and the world outside the hotel's door. The suites come with kitchens so you can, should you choose, limit your comings and goings. The rooms are large and comfortable and come with a queen or king bed. The location is great, just around the corner from Quinta Avenida, on a secluded street"About UsThe hotel is located on a pedestrian only street surrounded by beautiful restaurants offering live music and great food and drinks.Hidden behind Hacienda style gates and built around a lush tropical courtyard with swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sun decks and chaise lounges for sunbathing, we offer a Romantic yet family friendly atmosphere where our experienced staff will cater to your every need.All guests will enjoy our swimming pool and rooftop Jacuzzi & BBQ with the most amazing ocean views in Playa del Carmen.
