Expert Review

The former Ikal del Mar, at the edge of Playa del Carmen, combines a beautiful beach with 30 thatched-roof villas scattered amid the tropical forest. Thirty 1,000-square-foot individual villas with soaring palapa roofs and individual plunge pools make up the accommodations, offering the unique experience of a jungle escape combined with white-sand beaches fronting the turquoise Caribbean. Beds are draped in a gossamer canopy of mosquito netting and villas have outdoor showers, handmade crochet hammocks, and day-beds beside the pools. To add to the seclusion, the resort and its seven-mile beach are reached by a tiny dirt road. The villas come with DVD and CD players. Service is top-notch, and at these prices, it had better be! 2009 Smart Luxury Award winner
