The brand-new 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, 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 mini bars 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 30,000-square-foot 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 stand-up paddleboarding. Guests looking for a bite to eat will find fresh-out-of-the-water and other gourmet cuisine, signature cocktails and craft beers at each of its three restaurants/bars.

Enjoyed Most: It was a beautiful facility and the staff was very friendly. In fact, they upgraded us to a room beyond our TravelZoo reservation because our balcony looked right into housing across the street! We would never have been comfortable sitting out there!! That was very nice of them and definitely above and beyond. The first night was difficult as the fire alarms went off 3 times while we were sleeping. They were ear piercing and we kept we evacuate? No kind of direction as we stood out on our balconies to get away from the noise. When we complained the next morning, they said someone was smoking and they checked out. But they offered nothing for our sleepless night. The manager at Catch, the beautiful restaurant on the roof, was amazing!!! As was the food! Probably our best experience at the hotel!! Also, it took them 24 hours or more to recognize our TravelZoo promotion of $34/day breakfast. Couldn't use it on room svc..what?? They finally amended that.
Other Comments: We were surprised and disappointed to learn that our hotel was NOT on the beach. I had asked that question when I called TravelZoo. We had to walk 3 short blocks to the beach club and the other hotel that WAS on the beach. We were ok with that as it was explained that our rooms were less expensive, but wish it would have been more clear when we made the reservation.While the staff was very friendly and seemed attentive to your needs, there was no follow up. We asked for a coffee maker in our room and they said yes, but we never saw it. We asked them to remove a blinking light voicemail message on our phone (we couldn't understand Spanish directions), and they said yes, but it was still blinking when we left. Also the hotel was mostly empty, but my husband and I were traveling alone and they booked a couple with 2 young boys next to us. They were quite loud and would peek around to see our balcony and I just kept wondering, why would the hotel do that? Disappointing for a Thompson.
