Playa del Carmen, Mexico

When my friend said she wanted to go to the Rosewood Mayakoba for her 40th birthday, I didn’t even hesitate. This property has been on my hotel bucket list for a long while, and I was so excited I was going to check it off my list.

Upon arrival, our driver handed me a marg, which note to all other hotels, bring margs to all airport pick-ups. This really set the tone for the stay. After check-in, the hotel delivered us to our room via boat. This was just so special and took my excitement to a whole new level. Once we arrived at our room, my jaw hit the floor. First, each room has its own private pool, which I knew, but I needed to see it in person to make it real for me. The room itself is design goals. We had a sitting area, a king bed, and an indoor and outdoor shower in the bathroom. No detail was overlooked.

The beachfront pool was my favorite place outside of the room. Service was impeccable. Drinks kept coming, and the ice buckets with water and Evian spray were never empty.

Other amenities included bikes for every room, a spa, workout center, tennis, golf, multiple pools and restaurants, and a shopping area for souvenirs.

If you’re looking for a girls’ trip, a family vacation, or a romantic getaway, the Rosewood Mayakoba has something for everyone.
