Mexico’s Riviera Maya is known for its sprawling resorts, but the new, 27-room Acanto Boutique Hotel proves that low-key simplicity also has a place on the Yucatan peninsula. This hacienda-style property, one block from both the beach and the area’s pedestrian-filled Quinta Avenida, is set around a courtyard that’s home to a swimming pool lined by chaise lounges and lanterns. Spanish accents influence the interiors, where curved hardwood windows frame views of the Caribbean Sea. A bonus for value seekers: lobby-side Wi-Fi is complimentary, as is access to the hotel’s beach club, stocked with chilled towels and fruit for sun-seekers. And be sure to check in with the hotel concierge, who has close connections with nearby tour operators and language-immersion experts. 


Room to Book:

Villa 14 has sweeping views of the Caribbean from the private rooftop whirlpool.


Insider Tip:

Sign up for the hotel’s Friday night tapas cooking course or the mixology lesson, which focuses on Mezcal, the distilled liquor from Mexico’s native agave.
