When most people imagine an exclusive beachfront area, they might imagine one of those large super-resorts; yet, there is another option, perhaps even more exclusive – boutique resorts. Of the beaches in the Riviera Maya, the one that stands out as the best example is that of The Reef Beach.
This picturesque beachfront has many things “going for it,” making it not only good, but definitely one of the best in this category.
Beautiful beaches – People come to the Riviera Maya for its beaches; at The Reef, the beaches are among the widest, leaving plenty of room for lounge chairs as well as relaxing walks and perhaps a game of beach volleyball. The sand is soft and white. The water is always warm, and its beautiful turquoise color is a perfect complement to the sand and the deep blue sky.
Boutique Resort - All of us know what a resort is but a “boutique” resort is just that – small and upscale, focused on quality rather than massive numbers. The Reef is a boutique resort, catering to the finest tastes and offering relaxation for the beachfront like nowhere else.
Exclusive Beach Club – The Reef’s beach club is likewise designed in the spirit of the boutique hotel, offering comfortable and spacious relaxation next Playa del Carmen’s sandy beaches. It is the perfect place to relax at the poolside, or on a lounge chair on the sand, shaded, with cold drink in hand.
Upscale Community – The Reef is located in Playacar, Playa del Carmen’s most exclusive community. It is gated, very green, with bike trails, large, beautiful homes, and a handful of upscale condos. After a walk on the sand, going for walk through Playacar is relaxing, refreshing and pleasant for the eyes.
Near Downtown – With all of this, you might imagine something out in the jungle, far away from everything. Yet, Playacar and The Reef are located only about half a mile from the very heart of Playa del Carmen’s tourist activity (Fifth Avenue, downtown.) This makes it easy to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Relaxed, Family Atmosphere – While it is definitely upscale and relaxing, The Reef, its beachfront area and Playacar are also very laid-back places that can be enjoyed with the whole family. The security of the gated community and the exclusive nature of the boutique resort make it a place where parents can let their kids play with complete peace of mind.
For your next trip down to Playa del Carmen, plan a visit to The Reef. Chances are, you just might not want to leave.
