2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
In direct contact with nature, The Fives Oceanfront is located in front of the Puerto Morelos Reef National Park. This magnificent site is part of the barrier reef known as the "Great Western Atlantic Reef Belt" (also known as the "Great Mayan Reef"). Just a few minutes from Playa del Carmen, you will find a very scenic town called Puerto Morelos, which preserves part of its original essence as a fishing village. From the sea to your table. You will taste delicious fish and seafood courtesy of a cooperative agreement with the local fishermen. Immerse yourself in the striking underwater environment in one of the most diverse destinations for snorkelers. You will be able to appreciate 360º ocean and mangrove views from a breathtaking rooftop. Taste the delicious Mexican Omakase style cuisine with inspirations from Mexican cantinas in this fabulous place. Have a nice walk along the beautiful beach between the soft white sands and the crystalline waters of the Caribbean. Discover assorted culinary offerings, with fresh and healthy ingredients of Caribbean dishes such as the Romarley Beach House, an innovative food concept. Great connectivity. It is the only one of its kind in the area, just 20 minutes from the airport. You will find yourself face to face with the majestic ocean due to the exceptional views you enjoy from the top of your room. Explore a variety of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom residences with private terraces including a plunge pool overlooking the ocean. Upon entering this space, you'll marvel at the contemporary and creative design with Boho-Chic details. Take it down a notch in the infinity pool to relax, exercise and cool off after an adventure-filled day. Kick-Off your day invigorated with a cup of coffee from our Marley Coffee station. If you're joining us for a longer stay, this residential space is ready to accommodate your every need for both relaxation and work.

I’ll start with the positives: - the ocean view is amazing - the pools are great, although the chairs are limited - the decor is very nice and stylish - the rooms are very clean and the water pressure in the showers are great - the beach cabana set up is very nice - some of the servers were very nice The not-so-good stuff: - the beach was un-usable due to the sargassum seaweed and smelled horrible. I know this isn’t the hotels “fault” but just be advised that you can’t use the beach. - the jacuzzi in our room didn’t work. The water trickled out of the faucet and the hot water didn’t work at all. We called three times and talked to (complained to) the front desk even more but they still couldn’t fix it, or maybe they didn’t care to fix it since we kept turning down the sales presentation. - the sales presentation ambassadors were so incredibly pushy that it was uncomfortable to walk through the lobby because you didn’t want them to ambush you each time asking to schedule the presentation. We actually hated walking through there because we knew that they would almost always stop us. - the bed was so firm that it was like sleeping on a board. - the COVID test scheduling was a joke. They give you a link to schedule your test, cool! So we go on and schedule it for 8am since we were heading to Cozumel for the entire day. We get there at 8am and are told that they don’t start the tests until 9:45am. Since it was our last day, we had no choice but to wait. Our test was finally completed at 10am… this meant that we had to catch a ride to Playa del Carmen, wait in the extremely long line for the Cozumel ferry, and ride there. We didn’t get to the island until 1pm, to our beach club reservation until 2pm, enjoyed three hours of the beach that we paid (to use for our anniversary), and then it closed at 5pm. So… don’t plan on scheduling your test on the link and having it work out as planned. - the food at the RoMarley restaurant is over-priced and mediocre. One of the evenings I ordered the seafood paella and it made me sick. The drinks are also not very well made. - when you check-in, they make you pay a $700 deposit. Fingers crossed that I get this back since it takes “48-72 hours after you check out” to be deposited back. - there’s a kitchenette in the room but don’t plan on using it because they don’t provide you with any pots, pans, silverware, plates, etc. We even asked twice to have something to cook with and they brought us silverware only. So they don’t have this available to you. - the music was sometimes pretty hard to listen to (especially the live rock band) and the music was definitely not for children at times. And this was in the restaurant and pools. - they only provide you with two packages of coffee to make in your room and don’t replenish it. So don’t plan on a fresh cup on your balcony unless you go down and get one from the lobby. All in all, it’s a beautiful property and has potential but we won’t be back due to the very uncomfortable pushiness of the sales pitch staff to buy into the property and all of the above that I’ve mentioned.

We spent two glorious weeks at The Fives in Puerto Morelos and it was the most relaxing time ever! Check in was a breeze! The staff couldn’t be friendlier and more helpful. The accommodations are modern, stylish and clean. I love that it’s a smaller property so everything is super easy to get to from the restaurant to the pools. Did I mention there’s a rooftop pool with a view that is amazing!? There’s a themed dinner menu and planned events from live music, to pool parties, to pizza parties. We were surprised by a foam party on the rooftop pool one evening with a DJ! Super cool! The food at the RoMarley Beach House restaurant is very good, however the menu is somewhat limited, but there are dozens of excellent restaurants a five minute taxi ride or a 15 minute walk away. We went into town every single day to explore a new local restaurant. I absolutely love the charm of the town of Puerto Morelos. There is what appears to be a brand new grocery store that reminds me of the Whole Foods in the US. We stocked up on fruit, water, and other items for our room. There is a coffee maker in the room, but we ended up getting complimentary coffee from the lobby every morning. Excellent! We sent a bag full of clothes out for laundering. It was returned the next day for 108 pesos. Wi-Fi was great with a strong signal, and I had no problem using it to do a little work in the room, on my patio, and by the pool. The weather was incredibly mild and breezy for July. Sitting by the pool or beach, looking out over the ocean is my favorite thing. Spa service is scheduled for tomorrow, and I am sure it is going to be amazing. Most of the Yucatán peninsula (Cancun, playa del Carmen, puerto Morelos) is experiencing record amounts of seaweed right now so we didn’t go into the ocean near the resort, but we spent a day in Cozumel snorkeling and swimming in the impossibly blue clear water. The concierge at The Fives will be happy to set this up for you. This property is made for relaxing and de-stressing and it will be difficult for me to go back to the typical large resort experience. I literally cannot think of one thing that I would change about this experience.

Room Tip: If you like the quiet, get a room on the opposite side of the resort from the pool. Very peaceful!

We visited Puerto Morelos and unfortunately stayed at The Fives. I have traveled around the globe and I never felt less welcomed. As soon as we arrived, it felt like we were not wanted there. The check in was my worst experience there. Not only was I over charged, Sergio the representative who helped us made several errors while charging and placing a hold on my card and made me feel humiliated by the way he approached me for a different card to charge assuming I had insufficient funds rather than offering to help me contact my bank to see how the issue can be resolved. Sinhue was no better with the service and if he was the manager like Sergio claimed, he didn't even come out to introduce himself or apologize for the trouble. We were there for only four nights and although our interval benefits came with a free American breakfast we were told our stay didn't come with anything. We were not informed of any hotel activities or programs happening during our stay. After I thought the check in was settled, I was approached by Sergio again to recharge my card because he had made an error and charged it on the wrong terminal. After launching a complaint with interval is when we confirmed we were over charged for the resort fee and that it included breakfast (pictured below is the American breakfast). The service improved somewhat after the complaint but not soon enough to erase our first impression of the hotel. The rooftop view is amazing but would not stay there again after my experience.

The property has fantastic food, fantastic rooms, fantastic views, and the best staff! The spa experience was beyond anything I’ve experienced before. By far the best massage I’ve ever had! It was solely by chance we chose to stay at The Fives, however, We will be back!
