Fodor's Expert Review Mosquito Blue Hotel and Spa

Calle 12, between Avs. 5 and 10, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, 77710, Mexico

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Easily Playa's most stylish property, this is the digs for the nightclubbing tropical jet set. It's right in the middle of club land on Calle 12, which is a plus—or a minus, depending on how you like to spend your evenings. Imposing Indonesian-style mahogany furnishings and big-deal marble bathrooms lend the spacious rooms an air of gravitas; all beds are king-size. Lowest-price standard rooms all have little garden patios, a deluxe amenity uncommon in hotel "cheap seats." The 4,000-square-foot spa offers services like Mayan healing baths and an aromatherapy oxygen bar. Sister property Mosquito Beach Hotel, two blocks away, brings the same hipper-than-thou aesthetic to its beach club, with sun beds draped with lovely young things sipping caipirinhas.
