Pros and cons of the Sensira Riviera Maya

PROS

  • The hotel opened in 2021, so it’s still very new, and everything is pristine and shiny.
  • Kids of any age can really go WILD with the incredible activities available. Plus, the kids and teens club close at 9 pm giving you the perfect time for a romantic dinner à deux.
  • Guests will find a sophisticated dining offer comparable to fine dining restaurants in major international cities.
  • There is only one wedding per day, so you can be certain you will have the full attention of the staff directed to your event.

CONS

  • Honestly, the beach is not particularly interesting here, not as deep blue or clear as other areas nearby however, coral reefs are super close making it ideal for fishing trips or snorkeling tours.
  • We sincerely hope it doesn’t rain on your wedding day, as your only backup option is the ballroom. It is huge and beautiful, but it’s the only option.

Rooms and Sections

The Beach

Sensira Riviera Maya is located at Bahia Petempich in Puerto Morelos, a laid-back, low-key Caribbean town where fishermen still bring the catch of the day to local restaurants and divers go discover underground wonders at the reef just ashore.

The conditions of the water, sand, and reef will sometimes darken the waters, making it look different from the Caribbean beach you would expect. Anyways, the water is perfect for a refreshing swim and the beach is long enough for a brisk morning walk or a romantic promenade at sunset time.

Very nice, if you ask us.

Food & Drinks

Foodies at heart will be delighted with the sophistication and variety of each restaurant’s menu. Try the international buffet-style dining room, or exquisite Italian dishes, order some Mexican specialties, grab a quick bite at the casual snack bar or pass by the tea house for some sweet treats.

If you are in the mood to see a show or perhaps give a show, you must visit Rodeo Grill steakhouse, where guests are encouraged to ride a mechanical bull for everyone’s entertainment. Just remember to do it BEFORE you have dinner!
