The Thompson Playa del Carmen is "upping the ante in Playa del Carmen," according to Travel + Leisure.

The luxury boutique hotel offers guests two lodging options: the main building on Quinta Avenida and the Beach House, just two blocks away. The Quinta Avenida locale, set among the nightclubs and restaurants of Playa del Carmen, offers guests the option for a more urban getaway, while the 27-room Beach House is a more private, boho-seaside experience.

Mexico City-based designers Niz + Chauvet decorated each of the guest rooms to feature the Thompson's signature mid-century decorations with a native Mexican spin. Rooms also boast contemporary amenities like rain showers, custom sateen-woven linens, gourmet minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi access.

The 92-room Quinta Avenida location features a rooftop terrace best described as an "aquatic fantasy" by Travel + Leisure. This 2787-square-metre deck boasts 360-degree views of the city and ocean, half-submerged loungers, underwater living rooms and a vast infinity pool. There are also numerous poolside seating options, including private cabanas. Head to the Beach House for ocean-based activities like yoga in the sand and paddleboarding. Guests looking for a bite to eat will find fresh-out-of-the-water options and other gourmet cuisine, signature cocktails and craft beers at each of its three restaurants/bars.

Beautiful new hotel with nicely appointed boutique style rooms. Incredible roof top pool with wide open views of the ocean and surrounding town. Delicious meals served up at Cinco and Catch restaurants also located on roof top. Bonus access to beach side amenities at sister hotel of Thompson Beach House. Most of all, incredibly welcoming and friendly staff!

The hotel is nice, and had a great pool overlooking the city. Also thefood was quite delicious. But it does get loud and stay loud all night. This is a fun party hotel, but if that's not what you're looking for you should look elsewhere.
Other Comments
Welcome drinks were not offered and I had to argue with the front desk about the breakfast being included, even though it clearly stated both of these were part of the travelzoo deal.
