Expert Review

This 29-room hotel, which occupies a nearly empty two-mile stretch of perfect white sand at Playa Xpu-Ha, is located in a white stucco mansion that once served as a summer retreat for Italian duchess Rosa de' Serrari. The property features two chic pools fronting the ocean, a day spa, a thatched hut with funky daybeds on the beach, and the Sal y Fuego gourmet restaurant, which serves Mexican and Mediterranean cuisine. The seven lavish, ocean view rooms are equipped with iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs, and 600-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets; the ten two-level villas feature private plunge pools. Clearly, the Duchess had taste.
