In Los Cabos, Playa del Carmen & Tulum, Puerto Vallarta, Stay, Stay, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Our editorial staff traveled through Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, Los Cabos and Tulum and stayed at some of the trendiest and chicest boutique hotels. Here are our top boutique picks, where charm meets luxury in a comforting setting.

Thompson Playa del Carmen | Playa del Carmen – Riviera Maya


An urban paradise, Thompson Playa del Carmen is situated in the heart of trendy downtown Riviera Maya. The brand new hotel, which is Thompson’s second Mexico property, offers expansive beach views and rooftop city views to give you the best of both worlds. Enhancing the city vibes even more is the hotel’s rooftop which houses an infinity pool, three-meal restaurant Cinco and the popular New York City culinary concept, CATCH, which turns into a nighttime hotspot come evening. With a gorgeous, surrounding exterior, it’s only right that the inside matches. A glam, 1950’s Mexican oasis is the design theme seen throughout this hip and vibrant hotel, perfectly reflecting the city’s attitude.

Double Trouble: To balance out the bustling hotel, a quieter, more intimate Beach House will open in early 2016 and will hold 27 luxury rooms and suites.

Bahia Hotel & Beach Club | Cabo San Lucas


A chic and trendy hotel set in a pedestrian-friendly community, Bahia Hotel & Beach Club is the ultimate boutique choice. Located minutes from the lively nightlife of downtown Cabo San Lucas and steps from Medano Beach, this hotel offers guests the best of both worlds. Its signature restaurant and local favorite, Bar Esquina offers up live music, a 190-degree exhibition kitchen and a social and stylish bar making it perfect for a nighttime retreat.

Cabo Surf Hotel & Spa | San José del Cabo


Reminiscent of a California-style beach house, Cabo Surf Hotel & Spa sits on Acapulquito beach, one of the top surfing beaches in Los Cabos. Exuding the vibes of west coast living, this charming 36-room hotel makes for the ideal stay for those looking for adventure. The hotel offers surf lessons at its on-site surf school along with a variety of surf rentals, while yoga classes and Sea Spa Cabo provide relaxation and 7 Seas Seafood Grille serves up fresh and healthy creations with beautiful views of the sea below.

Coral Tulum Hotel | Tulum


This quaint and quiet hotel is full of tropical adventure. Twenty rooms with wooden architecture, white walls and turquoise accents welcome you to the exotic beaches of Tulum. A balcony, a private swimming pool and a king-size bed accommodate all suites, while the warm waters of the Mexican Caribbean Sea are a step outside your door. A tranquil, yet exciting escape, Coral Tulum brings elegant comfort to magical Tulum.

Hotel El Ganzo | San José del Cabo


Artistic expression and unique creativity comes alive in this boutique hotel located at the base of the Puerto Los Cabos marina. A haven for music and art lovers, Hotel El Ganzo is set apart from most Los Cabos offerings. While typical features are available, like an infinity pool, spa and sushi bar, it’s the unique underground recording studio, live musical performances and artists and musicians in residence that set this hotel apart from others. A swimmable beach club, bright accents, full-size bath products and a glass-enclosed Jacuzzi are other fun features of Hotel El Ganzo.
