La Quinta Avenida: Corazon de Playa del Carmen
Translation? Fifth Avenue: The Heart of Playa del Carmen. What better place for a new luxury boutique hotel to open than right in the heart of the city. Thompson’s Playa Del Carmen has done just that. With options of chic downtown luxury and rooftop pool vistas or oceanfront Beach House bohemian style, Thompson’s Playa del Carmen has met our high standards of being #luxelistapproved.
The undeniable focal point of the Thompson Playa del Carmen is the 30,000 sq ft rooftop pool and “playground”. With unparalleled views of the city, Thompson has created an oasis like no other. Complete with infinity edge pools with floating swans, sunken in seating, a restaurant, lounge and cabanas, it is the perfect destination for any celebration including bachelor and bachelorette parties.
Serving up the rooftop is Cinco which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual setting. Chef Pedro Abascal’s menu will not disappoint featuring everything from house made Mexican pastries to local fish tacos and fresh squeezed juices. My personal favorite? The blue crab enchiladas with a margarita on the side ((obviously))! They are so fresh and out of this world! Combined with a stunning view? What could be better?!
Over at the Beach House are 27 rooms and suites with an oceanfront setting. From the moment you walk in the concierge staff is there to meet your every need. We had the privilege of working with Daniella and she surpassed all of our expectations, catering to us at every turn. The rooms at the Beach House are nothing short of stunning. From the clean lines to the large soaking bathtubs ((in all rooms except panoramic suite)) and private terraces the views cannot be beat. Don’t let the lack of a soaking tub disappoint you in the panoramic suite.. it features an outdoor jetted Aquaspa perfect for those couples looking for a romantic getaway.
The Beach House also features a pool with cabanas, loungers and day beds that extend all the way down to the beach. Beachgoers are free to come up and use the daybeds and loungers with a minimum of a $30 bar tab at the C grill poolside bar. One of our favorite features are their movie nights!! Each Wednesday after happy hour ((from 6-8pm and SO worth it!)) they play a poolside movie. Non-hotel guests are welcome to join for only $10 per person! We know where we’ll be every wednesday…
Overall, the new Thompson Playa del Carmen blew us away with it’s sun-splashed luxury perfect for those guests looking for a getaway with friends or for those who love to be in the middle of it all. Thompson Playa del Carmen meets and exceeds our high standards of being #luxelistapproved.
Hasta luego amigos,
