The Xpu-ha Palace (pronounced
is an eco-friendly resort located in the Riviera Maya,
within wild tropical gardens and overlooking a spectacular
white sandy beach.
The resort features Mayan style architecture with open
air public areas (lobby, reception desk, gym, beauty
salon, etc.) In the lobby, you hear Mayan music softly
playing while there is a party atmosphere at main beach
area, perhaps with a DJ spinning disks. The resort has
3 restaurants, non-motorized watersports, a variety
of amenities and activities for the spirited guest including
scuba diving (extra cost). The resort maintains an eco-park
environment for travelers who want a laid back natural
experience; it is not for those who want to party or
want glitzy nightlife.
The resort is a sprawling collection
laid out around natural and man-made features, including
(good for kayaking and learning to scuba dive), an inlet
(good for snorkeling), two pools,
and a beach.
Bicycles are available for guests to ride (finding and
keeping "your bike" is a game for many guests).
There is also an electric tram that circulates the resort
from 7a to 11p, making stops every 20-25 minutes. Guests
should expect to do quite a bit of walking.
