This adults only, all inclusive near Cancun is home to the Palafitos Overwater Bungalows, the very first overwater bungalows in Mexico (there are now still just three – the other two being the very nearby Rosewood Mayakoba & Banyan Tree Mayakoba) and consistently hits world class standards for luxury all inclusive resorts.
It has a fabulous location on Maroma Beach, Playa del Carmen – rated one of the world’s best beaches, the gourmet food and drink is of the highest quality, there are numerous activities to enjoy and the resort is intimate, romantic and at the same time fun.
As mentioned, the Palafitos overwater bungalows were the very first in Mexico and come with all the features you would expect from such a pioneering resort – glass floor panels, jacuzzis, private infinity pools, outdoor showers and direct access to the crystal clear waters below your feet.
There are two basic types; the Palafitos ‘Beachfront Bungalows’ are close the shore while their ‘Superior Bungalows’ are out in the open water and so are more peaceful and give more of a at one with the water feeling.
Both are pretty much identical in every other way though and, covering nearly 600 square feet, they are modern internally and suitably luxurious, with extra large, terrifically comfortable double beds, a seating/dining area, sections of glass bottom floor, a jacuzzi, an infinity type plunge pool on the terrace over looking the water plus an outdoor shower. Other facilities include WiFi, cable TV, air con, iPod docks, mini bar, 24 hour room service and a private butler.
Note: Like most luxury overwater bungalows around the Caribbean the overwater bungalows at Palafitos El Dorado are incredibly sought after – Covid notwithstanding, for the 2021 season you should really reserve your stay as soon as possible. You are allowed free cancellation on most bookings.

“We went for our Honeymoon. This resort far exceeded my expectations of what quality service is all about. We had our personal butler, who took care of ALL our needs, even drew up a hot bubble bath (with Jacuzzi) and candles, rose petals on our bed on our last night with personalized note saying “Safe Travels, and Congratulations on your Honeymoon”. This gourmet resort pays close attention to how food is prepared, and honestly, the BEST creative food pairings I have ever had! I cannot say enough good things about this resort. The views, the layout, the rooms…all TOP quality and very well designed. Everyone was so kind. Their professionalism, quality, attention to detail and literally, taking care of our EVERY need is what I appreciate. They truly want you to experience and appreciate each minute you are there as their guest.
We will be back FOR SURE!…”
