Thompson Playa Del Carmen
What better way to escape the blistering cold of Canada than a trip to sunny Mexico? Over the New Year, my husband and I took an unforgettable trip to Mexico where we stayed at the Thompson Playa Del Carmen, a luxury hotel in the PDC. With stunning views surrounding us, excellent service and countless amenities, I knew this was worth more than mention on my blog to tell you about my stay at this exceptional hotel.
The Thompson Playa Del Carmen Hotel is centrally located in downtown PDC, surrounded by busy shops but only two blocks away from the Thompson Beach House, perfect for a quick escape to the sand. The central location of the hotel was great as we had Starbucks on our doorstep, perfect for my morning coffee, and a variety of restaurants to eat at, allowing us to try something different almost every night. Despite not being on the beach, the hotel has a breath-taking ocean view from the rooftop, the ideal place to sit back and relax.
The rooms were nice and spacious with a terrace, the picture-perfect place for a morning coffee and a relaxing book. With mid-century contemporary décor, a rain shower, a mini-bar and complimentary Wi-Fi, sometimes I didn’t even feel like leaving the room! The bathrooms are equipped with necessary toiletries and the softest cotton kimono bathrobes, the height of opulence.
Now, this is probably the highlight of our stay at the Thompson Playa Del Carmen Hotel. The rooftop at the hotel was beyond stunning, with a pool in the middle and restaurants on either side, we never felt like leaving the hotel. One of the restaurants is CATCH, the open kitchen and sushi bar, that sets a lively stage to enjoy globally influenced, locally sourced cuisine with captivating energy in their open-air dining room. The second restaurant at the rooftop CGrill, is fit for a more casual dining experience with authentic Mexican food with a modern twist. Even if you aren’t at either restaurant or the swim-up bar, the staff at the hotel are extremely attentive and helpful, making sure that your needs and comforts are met. We loved spending our days by the pool, relaxing and enjoying our time together in the sun, completely stress free.
Overall, our stay at the Thompson Playa Del Carmen Hotel was phenomenal. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding and everything about the hotel was the epitome of luxury. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and also highly recommend the Thompson Playa Del Carmen Hotel to you!
