The Viceroy is a boutique beach front resort located just outside Playa del Carmen on Mexico's Yucatán peninsula.
Hidden amongst the tropical ferns, palms and guava trees, the villas are decorated with sophisticated simplicity. Each comes with an outdoor terrace, private plunge pool, hammock and DVD/CD player.
The resort has a private stretch of white sand beach, from which there is great snorkelling, and a lagoon pool with a sundeck and pool bar. A full-service 'jungle spa' offers a wide variety of massages and treatments, including Mayan-style sauna, and daily yoga classes are offered by the sea.
An award-winning restaurant serves gourmet Yucatecan cuisine overlooking the Caribbean Sea, and there is a pool grill and cocktail lounge. Playa del Carmen, just ten minutes away, offers good shopping, and excursions can be arranged to many different locations including the Sian Kaan nature reserve, ancient cities and ruins (Tulum, Coba, Chichen-Itza, Uxmal) Cozumel Island and the Spanish colonial cities of Valladolid and Mérida.
