Corasol Beach Club (Grand Coral Beach Club)

The Best Beach Clubs Playa del Carmen

This is my personal favorite and holds my title of the best beach club Playa del Carmen. Mostly because it’s a bit further out away from the center where the beach is much nicer. It’s also reasonably priced and it has a pool. It’s not the largest beach club and so if you want to get a bed by the pool you will need to arrive early.

The last time I went the minimum spend was just $250 pesos. This normally works out as a meal and an alcoholic drink, or 2 soft drinks.

There are a few different ways to get here, but you will need some kind of transportation. You can bike here if you have one, otherwise, you will need to drive or take a taxi. It’s a bit confusing as they changed their name from Grand Coral to Corasol, just in case the taxi driver gets confused!

Open: 9 am – 5 pm
Address: Carretera Federal Nº307, Cancun Chetumal K.m 294, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Phone: +52 984 109 6112

Encanto Beach

Another of my favorite beach clubs Playa del Carmen is Encanto. It’s located in the more local area of Playa del Carmen. So it’s a quieter area of the beach. What makes Encanto Beach Club unique is that there are often events and activities happening here. At weekends you may find artisan markets. There are always fitness activities and volleyball games going on too.

Or you can do what I like to do… grab a pina colada and watch the volleyball players trying to not look like a creep haha.

There is a minimum spend here if you want to use a sun lounger, this is normally around $300 pesos, that can jump up quite a bit if you want a fourposter bed, plus you normally need to be in a group of 4 from one of those. There is no pool here, but there is a Spa where you can get a great massage!.

Open: 9:30 am – 6 PM
Phone: +52 984 142 6250
Address: Zazil-ha, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico

INTI Beach

I’ve never actually spent the day here at INTI beach club, its more somewhere I like to go for brunch. The food is great here, but this part of the beach is busy. Which is why I don’t often venture down here.

If you are looking for a central beach club in Playa del Carmen though, this is it.

Open: 9 am – 12 am
Address: Zona Federal Maritima, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Phone: +52 984 803 1109

Lido Beach Club Playa del Carmen

In Lido Beachclub Playa del Carmen it’s all about the food, music, and good vibes! I’ve been here a lot during my time in Playa, but mostly just to eat. The food here is very good and it’s the perfect spot for breakfast on the beach. There are plenty of sunbeds here too so you can chill here for the day.

No need to book at Lido beach Playa del Carmen, unless it’s during peak season in the mornings when they can get pretty busy for food.

Open: 8 am – 7:30 pm
Address: Av. 1era. Norte Bis, Mz. 22, Lote 3, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Phone: +52 984 803 1090

Indigo Beach Club Playa del Carmen

Indigo beach club Playa del Carmen is another of my top brunch spots in Playa. They serve breakfast until 12 pm every day and it’s for a fixed cost of $169 pesos for a buffet-style breakfast. Once you have filled up just ask the staff to move you to a bed on the beach where you can sleep it off!

Open: 8 am – 4 PM
Address: Calle 14 y La Playa, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Phone: +52 984 803 2599

Kool Beach Club Playa del Carmen

Kool beach club is a little different as here it’s not a minimum spend, its a day pass. This means you pay a fixed price and (almost) all drink and a meal is included. The cost is normally $750 pesos which is well worth it if you are planning on drinking alcohol as you can easily spend double this in other places. There is a pool here and it’s on a nice section of the beach. If you aren’t planning on day drinking then Kool beach Playa del Carmen probably isn’t the best choice for you.

Open: 8 am – 6 pm
Address: Calle 28 y Zona Federal Marítima s/n, Centro, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Phone: +52 984 873 1255

Mamita’s Beach Club Playa del Carmen

I’m going to be controversial now, I hate Mamitas. I think the food is average but well overpriced. The staff I’ve always found rude. Last time I went on my own and they charged me a solo person fee because they only accomodate couples… and as if that wasn’t enough to put you off they have a terrible terrible reputation with local people.

Just last year they were all over the local news for having a Mexican couple arrested and removed for sitting on the public beach close to their sunbeds. It was a whole shitstorm and they were 100% in the wrong and had to apologize. The videos of them manhandling this couple on their vacation went viral.

So yes, I’ve added Mamitas beach club to this list because it seems to be the hailed as the best beach club in Playa del Carmen, but I strongly disagree and urge you to avoid it and go somewhere else.

Open: 9 am – 6 pm
Address: Mza 10, Lote 8, Calle 28 Nte., Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Mandarino Beach Club

Beautiful day at #MandarinoBeach

A post shared by Mandarino Beach Club (@mandarinobeachclub) on

If you want a super pretty beach club in Playa del Carmen to add to your Instagram then Madrarino beachclub Playa del Carmen is the place for you. They have some super instagramable spots there and their pool is extremely photogenic. It’s also on one of the best parts of the beach in the more local (quieter) area.

This is the Playa del Carmen beach club I go to when I’m feeling fancy and want to pretend like I’m rich and important for the day.

Open: 10 am – 10 PM
Address: Avenida CTM, Albatros y, Zazil-ha, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Phone: +52 984 110 7752

Playa Martina (Martina beach club)

If I want to go to a low key playa beach club where I can just turn up and chill out for the day, Martina beach club is my go-to. And that’s not just because it’s a 10-minute walk from my house! I love the Martina beach club because the prices are reasonable and it’s always pretty quiet because it’s away from the super touristy area of Playa.

Here I can sit and read my book in peace! If you are feeling flush then you can pay extra for a four-poster bed or a bed at their pool.

You pay $100 pesos for the bed here and the staff are very good at not pushing you to order anything. But the food is good and the prices are reasonable.

There is a pool here, but it does cost extra to use it.

Open: 8 am – 7 pm
Address: Albatros, Zazil-ha, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Senor Frog’s Playa del Carmen

I’m not going to lie to you, I have never been to Senor Frogs in Playa del Carmen, and I probably will ever go. It’s really not my scene and it’s not in a great location as it’s way down by the Cozumel Ferry. Which brings me to the next reason I wouldn’t go here, it’s too close to the ferry. That said, if you are in Playa del Carmen on vacation and looking for a fun super touristy beach bar then it’s not a bad place to go, I suppose.

The best beach bars in Playa del Carmen

I’ve added these last too please to this post because they do have beach beds, but they are not really what I would class as beach clubs. They fall more into the beach bars in Playa del Carmen category.

The Carmen Hotel

I’ve added The Carmen to this list as it’s worth mentioning. Although, its more of a rooftop bar place than a beach club. But it is right on the beach and you can chill on their deck, grab a sunbed on the beach, or venture up to Deck Five their rooftop pool bar.

Open:
Address: Calle 8 Nte No 876, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
Phone: +52 984 803 2409

Zenzi Beach Club Playa del Carmen

Zenzi Playa del Carmen is the best beach bar playa del carmen, in my opinion. I’m at a lot with friends in the evening to listen to their live salsa band. They have different events on most evenings, so check out their Facebook to be kept up to date.

During the day though there are beds you can lay on as long as you order food, I don’t think there is a minimum spend. No swimming pool here, but the food is good and reasonably priced.

Open: 8:30 am – 2 am
Address: Calle 10 y la Playa, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Book your trip now

Are you ready to book your trip?  To help you get the best deals and service here are the companies that I personally use to book all of my travel online. I always shop around before booking anything, but these are my tried and tested starting places.

  • Skyscanner – I’m a bit fan of Skyscanner, it is who I use to book all of my flights. I often will check other like Google Flights or Momodo, but I always go here first and it is who I book 99% of my flights with. 
  • Booking.com – I LOVE booking.com especially when I can book and cancel free up until a certain point, mostly because my plans are forever changing. It’s easy to use and has one of the widest selections. 
  • Airbnb – I’m not a huge user of Airbnb, but sometimes I do like to use it, and I ALWAYS check it before I book anything else. You can get some really cool places to stay here, and it is especially good in places like Cuba. If you don’t have an account and you click on this link then you will get $36 off your first booking.
  • Hostelworld – If you are looking for hostels then this is a great place to check first. They often have additional places that you won’t find on Bookin.com.
  • Agoda – Although I don’t use it as much as booking.com, Agonda is especially good if you are traveling in Asia as they really do dominate there. 
  • Worldpackers – If you want to travel on the cheap and save money on accommodation then you need Worldpackers in your life. You can read more about it here. If you click this link to sign up and use the code CLAIRESITCHYFEET then you can get a 40% discount on your membership! 
  • Book a Way – If you are traveling in Asia and want to pre-book your transportation then bookaway.com is a fantastic site to do so. They have buses, trains, and cars.
  • RentalCars – Looking to rent a. car while you are away? I always book through Rental Cars as they do a search of all of the big sites and find the best deals. 
  • Welcome Pickups – Very occasionally getting from the airport to my accommodation is a total pain in the butt, or I’m traveling in a group and it makes sense to arrange a pickup. When I do I use Welcome pickups.
  • World Nomads – If you are looking for flexible travel insurance then it’s World Nomads all the way. I wrote all about insurance here if you want a more thorough review. 
  • SafetyWing – AsI’m a Digital Nomad and not moving around quite so much anymore I personally use SafetyWing now for my health insurance. I wrote a full review here
  • Viatour – Sometimes it can be a little expensive, but I like Viatour for somethings, especially if you can get a discount code! It’s also great for inspiration. 
  • Klook – If you are traveling in Asia, then Klook is great! You can book all kinds of tours, activities, and train tickets, plus they even have sim cards and WiFi.
