5 Rooftop Pools To Cool Off In Style In Playa Del Carmen


Playa Del Carmen is a beach town and the town is built right along the beautiful white sand beaches of the Caribbean Ocean. With such easy access to the sand and sea you may ask yourself: What is the point of side-stepping all that for a rooftop pool?

As much as we love the beach there are few times when an alternative is a nice change of pace. These rooftop pools offer something the beach does not:


  • No Crowds. Tranquility, Privacy & Exclusivity
  • Pampering. Food & Beverage Service at your fingertips
  • No Mess. Avoid finding sand in all sorts of weird places
  • Refreshing. Fresh water pool to beat the heat


Here we list our favorite Rooftop Pools in Playa Del Carmen for those times you want to skip the beach but still want to catch some sun and be outdoors! Which one is YOUR favorite?!



The Be Playa rooftop is a well known hidden gem in this beach town. Everybody knows about it but few remember to use this as an alternative to the beach during the day. Located on Calle 26 & 10th Avenue, this rooftop pool offers amazing views of the ocean, a laid back environment, background music, bar/food service by cute servers and a unique pool layout. On opposite ends you get chest-deep water to plunge into and cool off the scorching heat. In the middle lays the shallow ankle-deep area with a table and chairs where you can sit while enjoying a cocktail. Towels are provided if you are consuming! Also check out their schedule as Be Playa offers some occasional great live music evenings!



The Palm At Playa is a recent addition to the boutique hotel options in Playa.

Reina Roja emerged over 3 years ago as a hip hotel and destination where to drink, sleep and enjoy the huge rooftop pool. The decoration is different, slightly erotic and fun. The hotel has changed management multiple times over the years and it lost a bit of momentum and popularity among the local crowd – something they are trying to regain by hosting new promising pool parties! The large rooftop pool has always been a great place where to enjoy a nice leisurely day in the sun!
