Our favourite rooms
Depending on exactly how lazy you’re feeling, go for a beachfront room or a garden-facing one (which is only about 10 seconds from the sand, but still). The upper floor rooms are more secluded, and their balconies have elevated views.
The adults-only courtyard pool is sheltered from the sea breeze and shaded (partly) by palm trees. It’s got a built-in hot tub too.
The in-house Agua Spa has a focus on – you guessed it – water, but the treatment list extends far beyond hydrotherapy, to mud wraps, coconut milk facials and ancient Mayan rituals (not the sacrificial kind, you’ll be pleased to know).
Leave space for vintage treasures from the Casa’s carefully curated Bazaar Boutique.
The hotel isn’t set up for wheelchair users.
It’s a grown-up sort of place, but over-12s are welcome.
All the cleaning products are eco-friendly, while linens and fabrics are sourced from local artisans.
