Pros and cons of Atelier Hotels

PROS

  • Beach – the beach is stunning! Long, white, wide stretch of sand, you have plenty of room to lounge about. The water is turquoise and inviting!
  • Nightlife – In addition to the nightly entertainment options that include live music, you can drink and continue the party until 3am at the theater bar.
  • Golf Included- if you are looking for an all-inclusive resort that includes some golf, if you book an Inspira Suite, you can get free rounds of golf!

CONS

  • Inspira Room Location – Some of the Inspira rooms are the furthest away from the beach. They all have stunning views but are located off of the main lobby
  • No quiet pool – If you like to have a poolside nap or sit quietly and read a book, this resort, unfortunately, does not have a quiet pool area.
  • No nightclub – although they do have bars open through until 3am.

Rooms and Sections

The hotel is L shaped with the ‘regular’ rooms being on the long part of the L, closer to the lobby area. In this section, you have the junior suites, the swim-up rooms, and the rooftop suites. Depending on the location of the room, you may or may not have ocean views.

The Beach

Since Playa Mujeres has a limited number of hotels and the hotel is bordered by the golf course on one side, the expanse of beach available to the hotel and its guests is enormous.

The beach is wide, you can walk for miles, and is fairly deserted other than the guests from the actual hotel and Estudio the sister hotel.

Food & Drink

9 restaurants! NINE. From ocean view dining at Suspiro to the Steakhouse, Asian, Brazilian, Italian and gourmet taco options, you will have many gourmet options to delight every craving.

The Maria Dolores restaurant is the only restaurant that is not included as part of the all-inclusive package. Celebrity Chef Edgar Nuñez offers exclusive signature dishes at this avant-garde culinary restaurant.

For the bars, you have 8 bars to choose from a swim up bar to a traditional Mexican cantina.

Reviews for the food and beverage services have been excellent.
