Full accommodation information

Unpretentious beachside luxury, extending deep into the primitive Maya tropical forest, means that this resort provides the perfect refuge from the modern world. This dedication to peace and quiet is manifested in a complete and most welcome ban on motorised vehicles and uninvited guests.

The friendly staff endeavour to make your experience as much like staying in a private home as possible. You'll be pampered in the Mayan spa, with holistic treatment experiences together with a steam room, Jacuzzi and Swiss showers.

When it comes to dining you're in charge again, as you can choose to dine anywhere, anytime... in the restaurants, on the beach, poolside, or in the privacy of your villa; and with the Mayan Indulgence offer, you can choose the freedom, simplicity and great value of an all-inclusive option.

A recent refurbishment project saw a full modern redesign of the award-winning restaurant and lounge here, for an even more luxe experience. A brand new pool deck is perfect for sunbathing and boasts a selection of luxurious poolside cabanas. For those seeking to keep up with their fitness regime on holiday, head to the new state-of-the-art fitness centre. 

30 villas with private pools are surrounded by luscious jungle gardens and each has an outdoor shower.

Viceroy Riviera Maya is a haven where luxury and environmental responsibility intertwine seamlessly. Water conservation takes centre stage, with low-flow fixtures and a state-of-the-art drip-irrigation system nourishing all trees and flowerbeds. It's a harmonious marriage of indulgence and resource efficiency.

Eco-friendliness is a way of life here, with ethical soaps provided for you, for a responsible approach to personal care. The resort has also taken a bold step to minimise plastic waste, opting for glass water jugs instead of plastic bottles. It's a small change that makes a big difference for our planet. Moreover, Viceroy Riviera Maya has a treatment plant that ingeniously repurposes sewage water for irrigation, further reducing their ecological footprint.
