Deseo Hotel + Lounge
This boutique hotel, part of the Grupo Habita hospitality group, features a sea blue motif befitting its beachfront setting in Playa del Carmen. The hotel’s 15 rooms span two stories and feature claw-foot bathtubs and balconies. A rectangular pool with an “Away From You” message on the floor faces a wood-plank terrace and a lounge that hosts DJ sets at night. The resident restaurant features food all day, including Mexican-inspired specialties like chilaquiles and ceviche, plus global dishes like nicoise salad.
