Overwater Bungalow Villa Category: 5 Star Overwater Resorts, Adults Only Resorts, All-Inclusive Resorts, Honeymoon Resorts, Overwater Spa Resorts, Glass Floor Overwater Villas, and Resorts with Concierge
The award winning, adults only, Palafitos El Dorado Resort was the very first overwater bungalow resort in Mexico, (there are now still just two the other being the very nearby Rosewood Mayakoba) and consistently sets the standard for luxury, adults only, 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.
The thirty overwater bungalows at Palafitos El Dorado were the very first overwater bungalows in Mexico and come with all the features you would expect from such a top class 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 ‘Beachfront Bungalows’ are close the shore while the ‘Superior Bungalows’ are out in the open water and so are more peaceful and give more of a at one with the water feeling. Check them out on the booking page here.
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.
FACILITIES & THINGS TO DO:
This is an all inclusive resort with a great emphasis on gourmet food and drink, with much of the ingredients coming fresh from their own 76,000 sq. ft. greenhouses.
You have a great choice of restaurants as well as small, informal ‘Gourmet Tasting Corners’ serving everything from Mexican and Caribbean to Oriental and Italian, with the main restaurant being the Overwater Grill & Wine Bar which features two glass-floor dining rooms with spectacular views, and has a great array of international food; everything from burgers and fish to tacos, brochettes and Spanish paella.
The breakfast at Palafitos is a legendary spread and you can also order some to be delivered to your room. The same goes for any meal actually, 24 hours, and picnic hampers etc. can also be arranged for romantic days out which your private butler will be happy to arrange.
There are swim-up bars at the two communal swimming pools, a shisha bar and other bars which feature a huge range of wines, beers and mixed drinks as well as live entertainment. The resort also has a gym/fitness center and a lovely overwater Spa, the Náay Spa, which uses treatments based on traditional Mayan herbal remedies and antioxidant filled Maroma Beach sea moss.
Other activities at El Dorado Maroma include beach and water volleyball, yoga, dance classes, cooking classes, scuba diving, snorkeling, jet skiing, almost every water sport you can possibly think of, various tours and excursions, and golfers can access the nearby Greg Norman, 7,000-yard, 18-hole golf course, El Camaleón.
The resort is in the upmarket resort town of Playa del Carmen, less than an hour south of Cancun in the heart of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera. The overwater bungalows sit right on Maroma Beach, consistently rated as Mexico’s, and one of the world’s very best. The nearest airport is of course Cancun International Airport from where a shuttle bus can be waiting to pick you up.
