Almaplena Resort

Carretera Costera, Mahahual–Xcalak, Km 12.5, Mahahual, Quintana Roo, 77940, Mexico

One of only two fully green eco-hotels in the area, Almaplena Resort also happens to be the most luxurious, with rustic-chic rooms featuring textiles from Chiapas, rugs from Michoacan, wood from Yucatán, and iron from Jalisco. Rooms—in two-story white buildings—are immaculate and surprisingly large, with private balconies, four-poster beds, and stone floors. Choose one on the ground level (with direct beach access) or move up a floor for better views. Rainwater is collected for daily use, and wind turbines produce the hotel's electricity. The remote location, halfway between Mahahual and Xcalak, means you fall asleep to the sound of waves. The restaurant and beach club are open to the public, often turning this isolated beach into a crowded hot spot for cruise-ship passengers.
