Playa del Carmen Guide

Mareazul is an oceanfront resort located in the heart of the Riviera Maya.

Enjoy the smell of a sea breeze walking outside to your patio when you open your bedroom's floor to ceiling windows in the morning, sipping a cup of coffe, then swinging in the hammock outside on your private deck. Overlook the gorgeous green spaces and walk around the Zen garden to admire the flowers all around you. Mareazul has an abundance of natural resources all around the resort, and its wonderful views, no matter if you stay in a suite with a private pool or a penthouse, our units oversee the gorgeous jungle-lik gardens.

Located in a pristine Mexican Caribbean white sanded, seaweed-free beach, Mareazul is the perfect choice for a getaway for friends and family!
