The Pool

Wyndham Alltra is one of the top All Inclusive Resorts in Playa del Carmen that boasts a stunning oceanfront and a freshwater swimming pool with a bar next to it. You can choose to get your drinks and beer yourself or have them served to you by the waiters while you unwind in the cozy pool cabanas or sunbathe on the loungers.

Guests can use pool loungers and umbrellas for free. However, booking a pool cabana costs 45 USD per day, and includes a bottle of sparkling wine and drink service. If you plan on spending the whole day at the pool, it’s worth considering. Additionally, the pool is more magical at night.

There rooftop area with a second swimming pool and hot tub. It’s a good place to avoid the crowds. Additionally, you can enjoy a drink and a sushi roll at the Off the Hook sushi bar nearby.

The Beach

A few years ago, a hurricane caused significant erosion to the beach area of Alltra Wyndham Playa del Carmen and the nearby resorts. Despite this, there is still a portion of the beach at the end of the resort that has sun loungers, umbrellas, and a bar called Las Olas. Guests can enjoy cocktails and other drinks there.

Guests have the option to book a beach cabana for the same price as a pool cabana. However, during our visit, the beach was affected by sargassum, a type of seaweed that has become a widespread problem in the region due to climate change. It is important to note that this issue is not unique to the hotel and all beach hotels in the area are experiencing the same problem. The only areas in Quintana Roo unaffected by seaweed are Isla Mujeres, Cancun, and certain parts of Cozumel.

When planning your trip to Playa del Carmen, remember that seaweed is present from May to June until September to October.

The Wyndham Playa del Carmen in Mexico has 287 rooms categorized into 4 types – Standard Room, Junior Suite, Master Suite, and Master Premium Suite.

The rooms can hold up to four people in king-sized beds and feature a private balcony with furniture and floor-to-ceiling windows. If you book a room with beach access, you will also have access to your own exclusive beach cabana.

The Oceanview Junior Suite was just the right size for us. Although we had two balconies, the wind was so strong that we couldn’t enjoy them very much.

Our oceanfront hotel offers two types of suites: the Master Suite and the Premium Suite. The Master Suite has a private balcony with outdoor furniture, floor-to-ceiling windows, a seating area, and a spacious bedroom with a king-sized bed. The Premium Suite is even larger and features balconies off both the bedroom and the seating area, two bathrooms, and well-lit, spacious rooms. Both suites can accommodate up to 4 people and include an exclusive beach cabana.

Traveling to 🇲🇽 Mexico soon?

I recommend these travel resources for Mexico that I personally use:

🏨 Hotels: I have found that Expedia and Booking.com consistently have the best deals on hotels and resorts in Mexico. If you prefer to stay at a vacation rental, check VRBO that is usually cheaper than AirBnB’s added fees!

✈️ Flights: To find the best flight deals to Mexico, I always use Kayak. Remember to subscribe to their price alerts for the travel dates you want. Another great alternative for flight deals is Expedia.

🚗 Rental Cars: I always use and highly recommend Discover Cars because it allows me to compare several car rental companies and view ratings on various factors such as overall value, pick-up procedure, agent efficiency, car condition, and total time taken.

🚙 Cancun Airport Transportation: For the fastest and easiest way to travel, I suggest arranging a private transfer with Cancun Airport Transportation. Honestly, no better way to travel from the airport to your hotel or resort.

🤿 Tours & Activities: For tours and activities in Mexico, I highly recommend using either Viator or GetYourGuide. These websites offer a full refund if you cancel your booking 24 hours before the start of the tour, and they also provide excellent customer service in case of any issues.

🚨 Travel Insurance: I always suggest purchasing travel insurance as a precaution before traveling, especially after a recent accident in a taxi in Mexico. For short trips, I recommend Travel Insurance Master, whereas for digital nomads, Safety Wing is a better option.

📷 Best Camera for your trip: I always carry with me a GoPro, It’s light, compact, takes great video and pictures, and most importantly, it’s waterproof! You just can’t go wrong with one. If you are interested in higher quality video and photography, I always carry with me on my trips and highly recommend the Sony A7IV which I think is the best travel DSLR Camera out there.

☀️ Biodegradable Sunscreen: Remember to include a good sunscreen to protect yourself from the summer sun. I always use and suggest Sun Bum Sunscreen, which is vegan, reef-friendly, and cruelty-free.
