5 boutique hotels you must visit in the Riviera Maya

Editorial Hot List Inspiration Lifestyle Retreats & Relaxation
We love boutique hotels, why? They have incredible styles and designs, with a unique personality and being more exclusive, they not only guarantee you to have better service from the staff, but also an incredible location with the most trendy places just a few steps away. This type of hotel is usually one more experience on your trip, it is not only the place where you throw your bags and only return to sleep.
The Riviera Maya has many of these cozy hotels and we will tell you about our favorites:

1. La Valise Tulum

This luxurious boutique hotel in Tulum is between the jungle and the beach, with impressive views, making it a Caribbean paradise. It only has 9 rooms, so you will never have to worry about it being noisy or because the pool is full, which, by the way, has an exceptional view of the jungle on one side and the ocean on the other. This place will make you feel that you are in a remote and peaceful corner, but at the same time you will be very close to shops and restaurants. Super recommended for couples who want a more intimate experience and absolute relaxation.

2. Hotel Cielo Playa del Carmen
