Escape to beachfront jungle luxury

41 villas dotted across dense Mayan jungle and just footsteps away from Riviera Maya's stunning white sands, welcome to Viceroy Riviera Maya. This adults only resort promotes peace and a jungle escapism whilst not being too far from the lively town of Playa Del Carmen and the region's historic Mayan ruins. Each of the villas, each with their own private pool and butler service offer privacy and seclusion perfect for couples looking for a luxury boutique retreat. Thatched palapa style roofs, hand-carved furnishings, hammocks and outdoor showers all epitomise what a stay in the jungle is all about - complimented with modern-day amenities and facilities.

Absolutely perfect spot - could not be happier!

The Viceroy is a stunningly beautiful resort with a simple but luxurious set-up throughout the property. We felt like there was a great mix of jungle, beach and pool and we were able to take advantage of all three equally. In addition, the food was outstanding and there was a great variety of options between the two restaurants. If you can believe it, the drinks were even better - and if it wasn't on the menu, they had no problem whipping it up for you. Finally, what we think is the biggest selling point for the resort is the staff. Service was top notch and although everything else mentioned above made for a memorable experience, the staff at the Viceroy really made the whole trip. Shout out to Alberto, Francisco, William, Israel, Sandra, Rodrigo - and that's just the names we can remember, we know there's so many more we may be leaving out! Everything and anything we could have ever wanted or needed, they made sure to make happen. We are so glad we found this hidden gem and we are already rallying friends and family to return with us next year. Do yourself a favor and book a trip today!
