Mahekal Beach Resort translates to “Magical Beach.” Located in Playa del Carmen, Mahekal is truly a magical place for families. Guests stay in thatched-roof palapas that dot the pristine Mexican beach. Beach cottages and rooms in larger buildings have their own private terraces or balconies with hammocks. Three restaurants will allow your family to experience local foods by serving Mexican and Yucatecan cuisine. The Caribe Pool and the Aventura Pool offer large swimming areas, sure to please everyone in the family. Mahekal is also close to downtown shops and restaurants on La Quinta, or “Fifth Avenue.” Xel-Ha is also nearby, offering snorkeling and swimming with dolphins or manatees.

We have been coming for years. I think you have to love unique properties to really appreciate this one. It is not opulent - the rooms don’t have TV’s and there is a hut to paint pottery. The staff is soooo nice and wonderful.
I can reccomand this resort. Everything was very good. The employees very kindly en helpfull. it's very clean. The breakfast was good and enough choices. The Rooms are big enough for relaxing and clean.
