Overview

The Reef Playacar All Inclusive in Playa del Carmen is the perfect escape for a romantic getaway. The on-site Reef Spa oozes tropical charm with lush gardens, fragrant flowers and trees that grow through the building. Indulge in a couple's massage and a steamy bath for two with marine collagen and milk, or stick to the white sands and have a massage on the beach in a private cabana. Replenish your vitamin D at one of the two swimming pools, each of which provides towels, lounge chairs and parasols. To indulge in a little day drinking, purchase an all-day bracelet where you can enjoy top-shelf beverages all day long.

Highlights

Key facts

Six on-site restaurants take you on a culinary journey around the world. Chula Vista overlooks the rolling ocean and serves three meals a day, including a bountiful breakfast. Botticelli brings the romance to dinner with an a la carte menu of Italian dishes. The Terraza Grill allows you to eat in air-conditioned elegance or out in the sea breeze as you enjoy your freshly caught and perfectly prepared seafood. Finally, you can grab quick snacks at the deli snack bar, the ice cream parlor and the cenote.

wouldnt recommend

Would not recommend Tue, Nov 24, 2015
The bed was comfortable and room was clean, but so much noise from other rooms couldn't sleep-walls to thin. food was terrible and the service was worse. they ran out of plastic cups and had to go gather dirty ones laying around pool and beach area to wash before they could pour your drink. they acted like it bothered them to order one and the quality of drinks was poor. service in buffet was lacking by not even being able to get water refilled. room wasn't clean the second day and had to call down for more coffee and bottle water and they never showed up. internet and access to room safe was extra money

CAUTION BED BUGS!

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 19, 2015
We stayed here and woke up to a 6 a.m. wake up call to discover bed bugs crawling all over the white bed spread. I was able to capture them and take photos. Management did not address, follow up or talk with us about this incident. My daughter was completely eaten up from her feet up with large itchy red welts.

Would not recommend Mon, Sep 28, 2015
When we arrived to hotel there was no record of our reservation, that took a hour to figure out the we were lied to about excursion prices, promised free dinner voucher and never received, told we would get free WiFi and a complimentary bottle of champagne, never received, pool was dirty, food was just ok, staff was very friendly, beds were terrible very uncomfortable ...I would return to Playa but I would probably try another resort

Couple Trip!!

Would recommend Mon, Sep 28, 2015
At the beginning of the trip the guy that welcomed us, kept wanting to meet with us for some kind of membership. The location was great, greenery everywhere. Lunch just needed to be a little updated, and the kind of drinks available they tasted like pure alcohol. The gym was moldy and smelly but other than that it was okay.,

awesome vacation

Would recommend Mon, Aug 31, 2015
My entire trip and stay was awesome. I will be going back next year, and would recommend this vacation spot to friends and family. My only gripe was all the little kids playing around the pool bar, and splashing pool water into our drinks.

Great Trip

Would recommend Thu, Aug 20, 2015
The hotel was clean and friendly. The grounds were well kept and had beautiful jungle vegetation. The only downfall was that there is a buffet and 1 al a carte restaurant. The other restaurant is a surcharge. The food was excellent. Lots of fun at the pool bar and great drinks.

Honeymoon

Would recommend Wed, Aug 19, 2015
My husband and I stayed at the Reef for our honeymoon and had a wonderful time! The staff were so friendly and accommodating, they even remembered our names!! The food was pretty good at the 2 restaurants on the resort, the buffet was okay. Our bed was hard as a rock but we were on the beach most of the time anyways. The beach was very clean and you could walk to downtown in about 20 minutes. The only bad thing were the people trying to sell their not a timeshare timeshares.

Fun trip

Would recommend Mon, Feb 16, 2015
Beautiful beach location. Small-scale resort with only 200 rooms, so less walking than at most other Riviera Maya resorts. Decent variety of food at buffets, typically well-prepared. Ample beach chairs with umbrellas as long as you claim one before 8am. 2nd trip, likely will go back as good value for location.
