At Catch and Cinco, the closer to the edge of the rooftop patio playground you are, the better the views; get there early or make a reservation.
Blingy swimwear and sun specs by day; by night, jewel-toned dresses and embellished sandals for her and breezy white shirts for him.
Casual all-day diner Cinco is all about Mexican flavors by the rooftop pool. With views over Playa Del Carmen, it’s perfect for healthy-ish breakfasts (hey, we wouldn’t want to skip the house-made Mexican pastries either), or lighter dinners – don’t miss the local fish tacos. Closest to the Beach House, C-Grill is part beachside bar, and serves up wood-fire-grilled fish, Mexican-style grilled corn and frozen cocktails. The second rooftop restaurant and New York City transplant Catch puts a contemporary spin on classic seafood dishes and fresh sushi, and has an open kitchen (keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of celebrity chef Pedro Abascal in action).
Signature cocktails at daytime drinking spot Cinco include the Cinco Bellini, a passion fruit, lemongrass, and tequila-tinged take on the original, and the Playa Colada, in which Mayan vanilla syrup and Kahlua replaces the traditional coconut cream. If you need a short break from the rum, sip on a refreshing No-jito, made with watermelon, mint, lime juice and soda water. In the evenings, try a watermelon infused Seedless Suzy, or a spiced Ginger La Playa del la Reina at Catch. The rooftop space hosts occasional private events; check with the hotel to make alternate arrangements on those evenings.
Order Basil La Curas until 2am at Catch, but place dinner orders there between 6pm and 11pm. Bar and restaurant Cinco serves everything until 11pm. Early risers rejoice: both Cinco and C-Grill open for breakfast at 7am, and stay open until 11pm.
Order any time of the day or night from a menu that includes a selection of authentic Mexican dishes from Cinco, local favorites, and the Chef's selection of seafood dishes from Catch. Craving something else from Catch? Just ask.
