The Fives Downtown Hotel & Residences Curio Collection by Hilton is in the running for the best hotel in Mexico in Travel & Leisure Mexico’s Reader’s Choice Awards.

It’s easy to see why the hotel is held in such high esteem.

The Fives has an excellent location in the heart of Playa del Carmen, Mexico, a block away from bustling Fifth Avenue, filled with boutiques, restaurants and entertainment hot spots. The hotel is also just a short distance from Playa del Carmen’s white-sand beach.


Stylish rooms come well-equipped for guests with furnished balconies or terraces, 50-inch flat-screen televisions, full-size refrigerators, smart room controls, illy coffee makers and more.

King rooms are spacious with 389 square feet and have views of the courtyard. King suites offer more than 500 square feet of space with ocean or partial ocean views. Guests can also choose to book a two-bedroom suite with or without a whirlpool and more than 1,000 square feet of space.

The two-bedroom penthouse has an oceanview and a private pool and approximately 1,143 square feet of space.

The hotel is home to the Purobeach Club located on the rooftop. The poolside oasis provides private cabanas, sun loungers, and an infinity pool, a bar and a restaurant serving light bites.

Come nightfall, the rooftop transforms as the DJ cranks out tunes with a luxe vibe.

Dining enhances the experience. Guest can choose to eat at Mercatto for Italian cuisine or tequila and tapas at El Tigre and Marley Coffee makes mornings delicious.
