The Artisan Hotel Playa Del Carmen

The Artisan Hotel was a collaboration of a group of architects and business people that have already opened boutique hotels in other parts of Mexico and have plans to expand across the country including another 40 room hotel that is finishing construction here in the Riviera Maya.

From the outside of the Artisan Hotel on 5th Avenue most people would not expect to find the large central atrium and well designed hotel. Throughout the hotel there are murals and an ode to artist that gives way to the name of the hotel.

The Artisan Hotel opened in the spring of 2014 for a soft opening and then fully open by the summer. This boutique hotel only has 22 rooms so they are able to focus on quality and service to their guest. The Artisan is an adult only hotel, other hotels by this group will be for families.

Access to Playa Del Carmen from the hotel

What makes this hotel part of the new generation is the fact it is right on 5th Avenue. You can walk out the door and find many good restaurants within the surrounding blocks. If you want to stroll 5th Avenue in the evening for shopping or see the artist that set up on Thursdays in the pedestrian street, you can just by stepping out the door. In the hotel you have a wonderful rooftop pool and Jacuzzi that will give you a space to relax or do a little web browsing since they have Wi-Fi there. They also have a restaurant in the hotel and can provide meals poolside.

Amenities in the rooms of the Artisan Hotel

The 22 rooms all have:

  • private Jacuzzis.
  •  6 megabyte internet service.
  • L’Occitane products in the room.
  • a safe, coffee maker, large flat screen TV’s.
  • and other small amenities.

Most of the rooms are similar in the Artisan Hotel with a few differences between a few rooms without balconies,  some rooms have private doors to the adjoining room for related parties, and some rooms have two beds instead of one.

Since this is not a beach front hotel it does have an agreement for special guest discounts at the Canibal Royal Beach Club. This is one of the smaller and trendier beach clubs and is a good compliment to this hotel.

Rooftop pool open to the public

The pool and rooftop is open to the public. The rooftop is open from 9:00am-9:00pm. They do have towels for use and a changing area. The price of admission is ordering from the restaurant and bar, like many rooftop pools in Playa Del Carmen. The roof has good internet service and is a place you can go and get some work done or reading.
