Resort overview (Reef Resort)


Located right on the beach within walking distance of Playa del Carmen, the all inclusive resort is a great base for divers and those seeking to enjoy the other activities on offer both at the resort and nearby. 18 villas house 202 rooms, each with a terrace or balcony. All rooms have either one king or two double beds, air conditioning, satellite television, mini fridge and large en-suite bathrooms.

Although the town of Playa del Carmen is replete with great restaurants, the resort has four of its own! Chula Vista enjoys views of the Caribbean Sea and offers an international buffet at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Botticelli is an Italian a la carte restaurant and La Terraza Grill serves a great variety of Mexican dishes. The snack bar by the pool sits very close to the beach and is ideal for light meals and late night service. Evening entertainment can be enjoyed at Papo’s Bar or those who enjoy late night socialising on the beach might like to visit La Chiquita.


The in-house PADI dive shop is run by a young and enthusiastic team, eager to show you the local dive sites and ensure that you had a fun time. The dive shop is right on the beach, unlike many in Playa del Carmen, so it’s very easy to just turn up and head straight out diving! Boat dives to the local reefs are offered daily and the boat departs at 0830 for a two tank dive before returning to shore for lunch. Afternoon one tank dives are also offered. Reef’s dive boat can carry up to 12 divers and offers shade and camera rinse facilites. In the summer months snorkel excursions to see the Whale Sharks are a must-do, and for the adventurous, small groups to see the Bull Sharks depart in the afternoons between December and March. A full range of certifications is available from Discover Scuba Diving to Dive Master. Nitrox and a full range of Aqualung equipment is available for rental.

Other watersports are also offered from the dive shop. Use of the kayaks and catamarans is free, and for a small fee, guests can ride the waverunners or take a kite-surfing lesson.

Price: Seasonal specials occur frequently around Cancun.  These include special dive and accommodation packages.  Please contact us to tailor a Mexico diving holiday to suit your budget and diving wishes.

Reduced rates available for non-divers.

Single Occupancy Supplement: Please contact us.

Air Travel: Our in-house IATA ticket agency can arrange your air travel in connection with your holiday from a departure point anywhere in the world, or you may arrange your own air travel if you prefer. We can tailor-make your itinerary to your personal requirements, so if you would like to make a stop-over or two, make a side trip to some other destination, or travel business class rather than economy, we will be happy to assist. Please contact us about your air travel requirements.
