The Antojería or “a place of little cravings” is an opportunity for guests to enjoy traditional Mexican “street food” in an authentic market setting.

The Tides Riviera Maya’s unique butler service invites guests to dine whenever and wherever they prefer, evoking the ethos of a private residence. Enjoy breakfast poolside, cocktails in your villa with newfound friends or light savories following a leisurely massage on the beach.

The Casita Maya at The Tides Riviera Maya is an outdoor ancient Maya kitchen constructed of rustic wooden branches and a palapa roof provides guests with a unique Riviera Maya private dining venue (for parties with a minimum of eight). The kitchen also hosts Maya cooking classes, which highlight the native method of simmering banana leaf wrapped meats or seafood in pit-ovens deep below the earth.

At the Maya Spa, you can indulge in Massages, Facials, and Fitness. Drawing from each of these bountiful sources, the Maya Spa’s treatments offer powerful combinations of natural marine elements joined with native, aromatic herbs.
