Pros and cons of The Fives Beach


  • An easy taxi ride and you can be anywhere you want. Shopping at Playa del Carmen? You can even go twice a day… Visiting water parks? In a snap! Exploring Mayan archeology or underground caves? Super close! We believe location here is key.
  • Their restaurants offer astounding options that will surely coddle your tastebuds. Tour the world from your table with dishes from France, Asia, Italy, and Peru… you can even participate in the preparation of a traditional Mexican meal, just like visiting your Mexican Abuela! (grandma). A paradise for foodies.
  • They go all-in for the kids and teens! Crafts, classes, fitness, playgrounds, pools, and even spa and beauty treatments for pampering the whole family together. Baby amenities in the room include high chairs, a stroller, a baby monitor, and steam sterilizers. You can leave them all at home and pack light.

  • The property was designed to be a condo, so the layout may be different from any other beach resort you visit.
  • Same reason there are no direct ocean views from any room. Maybe if you have a top floor you can get a glimpse of the ocean, but not really.
  • The resort is located right next to a popular public beach. If you visit during the weekend, chances are there may be locals and visitors enjoying the beach.
A nice beach everyone wants to visit!

The Fives Beach and COVID

The Fives Beach Resort complies with all local and international sanitary regulations to keep everyone safe and healthy. Hygiene protocols include sanitation of surfaces, reduced capacity in certain crowded areas, and the use of open-air spaces as much as possible.

The staff undergoes checks of body temperature several times a day, and the use of face masks for the staff is mandatory. These are all very standard procedures nowadays in most resorts.

Rooms and Sections

Rooms and suites are super airy, wide, and spacious. The decoration is very modern with a touch of Mexican style here and there. They are divided into buildings so you have the sense of being in your own large apartment surrounded by gardens and pools.

The Beach

The beach here may not be as wide and long as other properties in Playa Mujeres Complex or Cancun, but for sure is one of the best beaches in Playa del Carmen.

This beach has continuously received since 2018 the Blue Flag Award, following strict environmental, conservation, safety, and accessibility criteria.

Food & Drinks
