EXTRAS: Snag the rooms with private pools and a rooftop deck if you want complete and utter privacy.

- A few things -
Surrounded by Mexico's lush jungle, Rosewood Mayakoba captures the energy and spirit of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. The hotel is as peaceful and authentic as they come, offering guests a unique beach experience that feels almost dreamlike. The hotel is situated on a mile-long stretch of Caribbean sand, in the center of a 1,600-acre luxury resort enclave
located just south of Cancun. Recognition for Rosewood Mayakoba include a AAA Five Diamond Award and a spot on Condé Nast Traveler's Gold List. This resort has been making headlines since it opened and we don't expect that to change. Experience the true Mexico here at this beachfront paradise.
