Located within the Deseo Hotel, owners of nearby Basico and Condesa D.F., this poolside lounge and DJ dance club is one of the classiest acts in Playa del Carmen. An all-white color scheme and collection of beautiful models unashamed to show-off their assets assemble for nightly DJ tracks and casual lounge scene that blends light conversation with heavy social flirtation. Guests enter through a separate staircase leading from the main street, to an inner courtyard with floating swimming pool surrounded by a teak deck and bed-style lounge that seem to always be full regardless of how early you arrive. An open-air bar is attended by often-skimpily dressed staff of friendly locals with efficient hands that mix up caparinhas and tropical frozen drinks.
Weekends include a tight door that is easily penetrated with hotel reservation or $20 to the doorman.
Boutique hotel popular with younger jetset turns into party-central for Playa del Carmen’s upper crust of singles and nightlife revelers.
