Secluded villas and spa in beautiful Mexican hideaway
Viceroy Riviera Maya is located on a six-acre stretch of pristine Caribbean white-sand beach surrounded by a tropical forest on the Yucatan Peninsula. This small and intimate collection of villas has a spa, health and yoga facilities and a restaurant and bar. Viceroy Riviera Maya Hotel is modern and stylish with a minimalist, natural vibe. Guests come here to relax, unwind and enjoy the serene beauty of the region, all from comfort of their rooms and the exquisite seclusion of the Viceroy Riviera Maya.

Hidden in a small village of Playa Xcalacoco just outside Playa del Carmen, along the pearlescent sands of the Riviera Maya, Viceroy, formerly The Tides Riviera Maya, is a seaside refuge extending deep into the primitive Maya tropical forest. The 41-villa Mexico Luxury resort and its stunning spa present the epitome of Maya Riviera beach unpretentious luxury, exuding the ambience of an exclusive private Playa del Carmen villa or opulent residential compound.

While on in the area, tourists can enjoy snorkeling, scuba diving and water skiing on the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. Guests can also dive the cenotes, visit Xaman Ha Aviary or experience the dining, shopping and nightlife opportunities at Quinta Avenida. Vacationers can also go golfing, horseback riding and sightseeing in the surrounding area.

Phenomenal Service, Setting, and Food

Peaceful, luxurious in a jungle boutique sort of way. Attention to detail in the design and every little touch is spot on for what this resort wants to be. The service is impeccable. The setting is exquisite. The food is outstanding. Great massages, food, reading, and relaxing.Thanks to [...] and the many others who made our stay great!

Ideal spot for a girls weekend

The Tides is in a word, perfect. The staff is attentive, kind and english-speaking. The grounds are well maintained and the hotel layout unique. The spa is an oasis of serenity. The food is delicious (a bit pricey). And, the margaritas are served on the rocks with the finest tequila. Seven girls celebrating their 40th birthdays enjoyed every minute of their vacation at the Tides without a single complaint. It was sheer bliss.

Wow...Just Go!

If you want luxury, pampering and peace go here. The resort looks better in person than it does on the site. The rooms are amazing. Take the outdoor shower... you will never want to shower indoors again. Don't go to the tides if you are worried about every dollar you will spend. But compaired to the all inclusives it is almost the same cost...unless you drink all day long.

You are a 15 -30 minute taxi ride (depending on traffic) from Playa Del Carmen. Do go to Playa..5th Avenue is not to be missed.

Tides delivers on expectations and more

Tides is a small boutique hotel and spa on the Riviera Maya but apart from the crush of other tourists. Setting in coastal forest on the beach and low number of very tasteful villas makes for personal space, calm and quiet. Staff is top shelf, knowing exactly where the line is between being attentive and being invasive... and really will follow through on your special requests, whether these be for a special meal or arranging an outing. The hotel spa is also excellent and comparable in quality of service to high end in the USA. Very highly recommended!!

Good for romantic couples

Lovely welcoming staff and friendly service. Secluded location was very peaceful with a 15 min cab ride into Playa for about $15 american dollars. This is great if you want to get away from it all and just lie on the beach. We went to Playa every day so hired a vespa to get in and out.
