In Playa del Carmen & Tulum, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Hilton’s very first Playa del Carmen hotel, The Fives Downtown Hotel & Residences, is part of Hilton’s Curio Collection and is the first property in the country from the brand. The boutique stay is located at Avenida 10 Norte and Calle 2, just two blocks from the sparkling Playa del Carmen beach.

The hotel boasts 93 guest rooms, a 50-meter rooftop infinity-edge pool overlooking the ocean and four dining outlets including a tequila bar with more than 100 different tequilas and mezcals. The design of the hotel is thanks to architects Gabriel Téllez and Erick Alcalá and interior designer Mario Téllez Gurbina. Inspired by traditional Mexican decor with contemporary touches, the design features bright colors and natural textures with furnished balconies and terraces. The public spaces include a vertical garden, modern artwork from renowned international artists and more.

“The opening of this distinguished hotel marks the debut of the Curio Collection brand in Mexico and further expands our presence in this important region,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio Collection by Hilton. “From its culturally inspired design to its lavish amenities, the hotel was hand-picked to be part of our global collection of remarkable independent hotels. The Fives Downtown reflects the diverse people and culture of Playa del Carmen – truly embodying the spirit of its destination.”

Additional amenities include a 24-hour state-of-the-art gym, meeting and event space and a rooftop oasis complete with cabanas, massage services, a restaurant, lounge music and mixologists.
