Staying at The Fives Downtown Hotel & Residences in Playa Del Carmen

2/17/2019 Unknown 0 Comments


To end the summer last year, I stayed at The Fives Downtown Hotel & Residences, Curio Collection by Hilton while visiting Playa Del Carmen in Mexico. This easily became one of my favorite Hilton stays! Let me tell you about my stay in their luxurious penthouse!

The Fives Downtown Hotel & Residences





Located in the Riviera Maya, The Fives Hotel is a gorgeous boutique hotel from Hilton's Curio collection, nestled in the heart of downtown Playa Del Carmen. It features contemporary decor with Mexican flair and has a beautiful rooftop infinity pool and bar with views of the sea and Cozumel.

The Room 





I was lucky enough to stay in their unique 2 bedroom penthouse suite with upstairs private pool. The suite featured a beautifully decorated kitchen, living room, 2 separate bedrooms and full bathrooms with all the amenities. A nice touch were the robes and The Fives branded flip flops. Large windows opened up to balconies with views of the sea.

 The Pool




The pool is truly what made it amazing for me. I love swimming, so I spent most of my time in the private infinity pool. There was really no need to leave! With a fully furnished private terrace with a bathroom and connected to the Purobeach Club, this was the perfect spot to eat breakfast and start the day with a swim.


We also had butler service, which made sure we had everything we needed and always with fresh towels. During the day, after spending time exploring the streets of Playa Del Carmen, the private rooftop pool was a great place to retire and fit in another quick swim before dinner.


Late at night we had a great view of the night sky and could here the nightlife - Playa Del Carmen comes alive at night.

Food & Drink



Not only was the suite perfect, but the hotel as a whole was great and the staff was very accommodating. The Mercatto restaurant on the ground floor offers great breakfast options. You can also grab drinks on the rooftop at the Purobeach Club. There are also a few other dining options in the hotel. A major plus is being steps away from downtown, that offers a range of Mexican restaurants to try.

If visiting the Riviera Maya, you should definitely stay here! In addition to the larger suites, you can also find affordable guest rooms that are equally as nice. But if you have the chance to splurge, treat yourself to a stay at the penthouse and you'll see why I fell in love!

Thank you to The Fives Downtown Hotel & Residences for an amazing stay!
