Beachscape Kin Ha Villas & Suites Cancún, CancúnHit the beach as soon as you touch down at this Cancún hotel on the Caribbean Sea. Palm trees flank the outdoor pool, while the on-site gym is primed for early-morning gym bunnies. There’s also a spa for post-flight pampering.
Palapas del Mar, HolboxThe 52 villas here on Holbox are minimalist, yet with plenty of Mexican touches such as embroidered pillows and Acapulco chairs throughout. You won’t want to miss the Sky Bar, a rooftop lounge where drinks flow and DJs play music above the pool.
Hacienda Santo Domingo, IzamalThis hideaway, just west of downtown Izamal, has wood-beamed ceilings and four-poster beds that give the rooms and suites a traditional 17th-century feel, while updates such as the converted patio pool bring it into the modern day.
Hotel Del Peregrino, MéridaThis Spanish-colonial house, just a short walk from the Cathedral of Mérida and Plaza Grande, features traditional rooms with Mexican tiling and colourful local artwork. Tuck into a gourmet breakfast, served on the leafy central patio each morning.
Zamas Hotel, TulumThe name Zamas comes from zamá, which in Mayan means “new beginning” or “sunrise”. You’ll certainly appreciate the pink dawn skies over the Caribbean Sea from the palm-thatched cabanas strung with hammocks on the patio.
