Playacar Palace Unveils Complete Transformation

Mexico’s five-star Playacar Palace has reopened following an extensive, US$14 million multi-phase remodel.

The all-inclusive resort for couples, families and groups is located on the white sands of Playa del Carmen, just steps away from the Quinta Avenida.

Renovation details include upgrades to guest rooms, lobby, front desk, restaurants and lounge areas.

Each of the 201 rooms boasts new décor, installation of modern furnishings, enhanced showers and vanity areas, top-of-the-line Lavazza coffee makers and advanced jets added to the in-room double whirlpool tubs.

The property’s existing “Walk Out” suites now feature a private terrace. Suite access is available via state-of-the-art wristbands, allowing guests to open the door to their suites with a wave of the hand. Keeping the key-less addition consistent, other guests can download the Palace Resorts app via their mobile phone and use it to open their room doors.

Playacar Palace’s Italian restaurant, formerly known as Terraza, has reopened as Bocelli, sporting a new style and menu. The newly released menu features premium quality Certified Angus Beef cuts in signature dishes such as Controfilleto e Formaggio, Ribeye con Grani di Pepe and the popular Petit Filet.

Guests booking a stay of five nights or more will receive a US$1,500 resort credit, which can be used towards spa and beauty salon treatments, golf outings, dinners, wedding packages and off-site excursions and tours. Palace Resorts’ all-inclusive accommodations start at US$172 per person, per night, based on double occupancy.
