The Deseo Hotel is by far the hippest spot in
Playa del Carmen. It is a whole new feel for
this eclectic little Mexican beach town.
Clean Lines and simple minimalist design
adorn their 15 rooms. Rooms have enormous white
beds, fluffy white towels, teak chaises, mottled
marble floors, flowing curtains and some have
terraces with hammocks. Simple but pleasantly
All the rooms are air conditioned, have
mini-bars loaded with yummy things, a safety
deposit box and satellite TV. Bathrooms within
the rooms can for some can lack a level of
privacy...Although fabulously designed,
bathrooms are separated by a flowing curtain and
some tubs are exposed in the room. Can be great
for couples but sometimes not for others. Some
rooms have old claw foot tubs.
The hotel is a short two blocks from the beach
but many guests never seem to feel the need to
leave the hotel.
are 3 types of Rooms available:
Lounge View Rooms: overlooking the pool/lounge
area (no balcony).
Balcony Rooms: They offer balcony's that over
look the street area.
Suites: they are very roomy and comfortable. 2
of the 3 suites have wrap around terraces with
hammocks and doors that can open the whole room
to the outdoors and breeze. Also, they have a
separate dressing area that the other don't
All rooms offer fluffy white towels, a nice
selection of toiletries and well lit vanities.
Just remember bathrooms are not as fully
enclosed or private as other conventional hotel
rooms. If you want a unique and chic hotel
experience, Deseo is it!
The pool / lounge area is also something to see.
They have cozy lounging beds and ultra-hip pool
that changes colors at night. They also have
been known to project old classic movies up on
one of the walls in the pool/lounge area at
night (without sound).
Deseo creates a mood that whatever it is... you
want to be a part of it.
At night the hotel's lounge area becomes the
place to be with its music, smart lighting,
trendy bar and cozy seating. It is all open air
to be able to enjoy the Caribbean breeze coming
off the sea 2 blocks away. On weekends, they
often have a DJ that creates the musical mood.
The Deseo does not recommend more than two in
a room. They do not add beds to accommodate
extra guests. Rates are strictly for a maximum
of two guests per room.
Two of the three Suites at Deseo feature
these wonderful wrap around terraces with huge
patio doors that can be completely opened up.
It's a great place to hop into your hammock, put
your feet up and chill out with a good book.
Please note that no children
