“A week in heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

This was our first trip to the Riviera Maya and we really didn't know what to expect. We stayed a week at Paamul and had the most relaxing and enjoyable time. The area is an unspoiled paradise, different from the hotel conglomerates, this resorts offers tranquility and excellent service. We walked along the private beach collecting sea shells and interesting rock fossils. The restaurant has some of the best food that we tasted in the area, always with a polite and serviceable staff.
Paamul is close to many attractions and within a short distance to deep sea fishing, park attractions (Xcaret should not be missed!) golfing close by, and within the resort, a scuba diving shop with experienced and helpful instructors. For more action, we went to Playa el Carmen with more opportunities to shop, eat and drink than we could pack in the two days that we went there.

“Paamul a wonder Place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

Paamul is a beautiful little place just south of Playa Del Carmen. it can be reached by taxi or the collectivo from Playa... There is a beautiful reef just out beyond the beach. Bring your water shoe because you will need them. The people are very friendly and if you Dive there is an outstanding dive shop here. There is also a small but nice hotel....The food here is good and the beers are cold... They have a pool you can use for free if you order drinks or food. If you are looking an out of the way place this is...it!!!

“Good sight for a snorkel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2009

We spent an afternoon snorkeling here. The beach is rocky and water is shallow. Please be cautious while wading. It was sad to see so many broken coral formations. As you go further out, the snorkeling gets better. Also a good place for shells. There is a restaurant on the beach. The food tasted good going in, but not so good coming back out. I spent the night hugging porcelain due to food poisining. I think it may have come from the limes in my beer as my husband and I shared food and only I became ill :(
