Feel the powdery perfection of the white sand under your feet as you say “I do” at one of the finest beaches in Mexico for your destination wedding.

With fireworks, horse-drawn carriages, and some of the most beautiful scenery you will ever experience, you can make your fairytale ceremony come true with a Playacar Palace wedding.
The resort is located just steps away from the famous 5th Avenue, Playa del Carmen’s Pedestrian Walkway, known for its bohemian flair and its collection of sidewalk cafes, open-air restaurants, stores, and nightclubs.
The hotel is better for Playacar Palace wedding couples who desire a quiet and more relaxed stay, as the property is a bit smaller than most and does not offer much on-site entertainment.
There is only 1 main pool at this resort, so it is better for guests who love the beach.

“My stay was incredible!! The rooms were kept nice and clean, and the food at every meal was amazing. We were here for 7 days in total and more than anything the people who work here were so helpful, friendly, and kind. Their service was unmatched. The entertainment staff (Rodrigo, Pepe, Jose, and the others) made us feel very welcome. They went around getting to know each of the guests by name and checking in daily. With activities such as beach volley ball and water polo it was never a dull moment at the pool thanks to the staff here! I certainly hope to come back to this Palace resort someday :)” – Abigail A. 3/19
