    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!

    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!!

    The spa is really top notch - not just an add-on to make the brochure look good.

    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.

    Loved It!!!

    My stay at the Viceroy Riviera Maya was fabulous, absolutely fabulous. The grounds are so beautiful to walk..to walk through the nature trails that are beautifully manicured with peaceful sitting places along the way. There is even one sitting place near the water falls. The spa is absolutely gorgeous. And, the messages are out of this world. I had an outdoor message. The pool, beach, and the food/drink service are all outstanding.Now, for the villa. I absolutely love, love the villa. The quality of the workmanship is outstanding. The layout is outstanding. The amenities, including the linen are outstanding. I relaxed in my villa pool, slept in my hammock, and showered in my outdoor shower! Oh! And, my yoga classes with Sam were also outstanding. The staff are very attentive and very pleasant. This place is now top on my list of best getaway places. It is very peaceful and safe. I will be there again, next year. PS---I went alone, a single woman.

    Greta Place

    Breakfast was amazing, staff was excellent. Dinner service was a bit slow, but while one is lounging around it is not that important. We took a car into town 2 nights for dinner and found the food to be excellent. Omar made excellent suggestions. The room was very private, outside shower was great. Plunge pool a nice touch. The place is perfect for rest and relaxation.
