Playa Hotels & Resorts’ latest partnership has given the company two additional properties on Mexico’s Caribbean coast, properties Playa Hotels & Resorts’ director of sales for Canada says will still look familiar to those who have appreciated them in the past.
Amanda Morris told a March 31 Baxter Media webcast that Playa Hotels & Resorts now manages both the Wyndham Alltra Playa del Carmen and the Wyndham Alltra Cancun, but the all-inclusive resorts remain essentially the same.
“All the things everybody loved still remain here,” she said.
One Wyndham bellman has been on staff for 32 years, Morris reported.
The Playa del Carmen property is for those 18 and older, has 287 suites, and provides guests with quick access to both downtown Playa del Carmen and the beach.
Guests will find the likes of two pools, a fitness centre with trainers and fitness-conscious guests can opt for the likes of aquaaerobics and pilates if they choose.
“People are putting more of a focus on their well-being,” Morris said.
The resort has a gazebo and hosts weddings of up to 60 people.
The Wyndham Alltra Cancun in turn has 458 suites and welcomes families, offering children the likes of a waterpark with a replica pirate ship and a castle.
A swim-up suite is available.
Restaurant choices include a Mexican eatery where they make guacamole “for you,” Morris added.
Fitness programs are available, as is yoga.
Guests can get married at the property.
Morris said the Wyndham Alltra Cancun is “in the heart” of Cancun and has the widest stretch of beach in the destination.
Another area resort falling under the Playa Hotels & Resorts banner is the Hyatt Ziva Riviera Cancun, located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen.
Among other things it has nine swimming pools, prompting Morris to describe it as “100% a pool property.”
“Pool walkout rooms” are available, she added.
Another Playa property bearing the Hyatt name — the Hyatt Zilara Riviera Maya — is slated to open on the Riviera Maya this year.
Playa Hotels & Resorts now has properties in Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica.
Meanwhile, Morris said her employer has borrowed elements of Hyatt’s, Wyndham’s and Hilton’s Covid safety protocol programs. “We’re always making sure our guests are safe and of course our staff as well,” Morris said.
