A short 45 minute drive from Cancun International Airport is the resort town, Playa del Carmen. You’ll find Marriott’s newest property which just opened this month in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
The Aloft Playa Del Carmen features 167 guest rooms with award nights ranging from 22,000-30,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per night, making this an attractive property to redeem points.
Aloft Hotels, the hotel brand for music fans and design-driven travelers, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 extraordinary brands, arrives in Playa del Carmen today. Marking the third Aloft hotel in the Mexican Caribbean, Aloft Playa del Carmen is located one street away from the vibrant and busy Fifth Avenue, a landmark surrounded by restaurants, bars, and stores and a few steps from its beautiful beaches.
The history of Playa del Carmen goes back in time to the Mayan settlers who inhabited the area known as Xaman-Há. There are vestiges of pre-Hispanic buildings in the Playacar area. From Xcaret and from these coasts, pilgrims departed every year to offer tribute to Ixchel, the Mayan goddess who had her main sanctuary in Cozumel. That is why, today, Playa del Carmen is a cosmopolitan destination visited by tourists from all over the world.
Aloft Playa del Carmen will be a haven for digital nomads with dedicated workspaces, three rooms equipped with audiovisual technology and high-speed Wi-Fi, a capacity for 20 people, and two private spaces ideal for videoconferencing.
It’s great to see Marriott continue their expansion in the Riviera Maya, with more hotels on the way including the St. Regis Kanai Resort, Riviera Maya slated to open next year.
Marriott also had plans to open the W Playa del Carmen in 2023, however this seems to have gone quiet, so not sure if we’ll see this moving forward this year.
