Dreaming at Le Rêve- See more at: http://www.everything-beautiful.com/dreaming-at-le-reve/#sthash.ZQEWIELJ.dpuf
If you’re looking for a resort that feels like a private beachfront residence, then Le Rève is the best kept secret I know, as it comes complete with all-inclusive 5-star meals and open bar service. Le Rève, meaning ‘The Dream’, completely embodies this haute, boutique-style name. The 25 room boutique style hotel is steps away from the Caribbean Sea, I counted 3 steps from our Private Beachfront Bungalow to the sand, and about 35 steps to reach the perfectly refreshing Sea water. Le Rève is located on the corner of a private stretch of white sand beach in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, about 30 minutes from the Cancun airport and about 15 minutes from downtown Playa Del Carmen.
First off, let me just tell you that you will be in absolute wide-eyed, ‘I can’t believe we’re really here’ mode for the first few days, from the minute you turn the corner in the foyer entrance and see the first view of the turquoise and neon blue Sea, with the infinity pool and wooden slatted pool deck in the foreground, and best of all, the entire grounds are so quiet, relaxing and well-kept as the hotel holds a maximum of 25 rooms worth of guests!
The grounds are immaculate; décor focuses on white walls and floors, and dark stained wooden slats. The birds chirp happily each morning, a resident iguana could be seen sunbathing near the pool, and resident turtles perch on their rocks in their own private outdoor aquarium to take in the rays. Staff can be seen working hard in the mornings to clean and take care of the pool, cleaning floors, and always greeting you with a smile.
The beach is simply stunning. White sand, coral rocks and plenty of fish! If you walk 2 minutes to the right just past the resort itself, there is clear blue water and sand and you can walk out ~100ft to a sand bar bringing you back up to hip-deep waters, and just…float there…. absorbing the good energy that exudes itself in the Riviera Maya.
The Beachfront Bungalows, each with their own private infinity plunge pool (5/25 rooms), is not something to pass up. Open concept with floor to ceiling glass doors that open fully to your own private wooden slatted infinity pool deck & to let in the sea breeze. When you finally plunge onto the king-sized billowing white duvet, you look up and see the traditional Palapa roof, made with palm leaves and natural wood. We saw a couple of miniature lizard friends using the wood panels as their highway during our week stay, but they never bothered anyone! The marble floors, countertops, rain-style shower with private toilet room and all sheets and windows were cleaned to perfection daily. The cleaning service actually comes twice a day. Like I said…. We were totally spoiled.
