exclusive places; it is a small property that shows to its
visitors the Playa del Carmen’s beauty from a modern
perspective, with rustic and elegant touches. Its high
quality services and amenities, joined to its professional

For anyone thinking that the Hotel Basico is about plain and
bare design, think again. Themed around basic concepts with
a strong local identity, the Basico hotel challenges
preconceived notions of what a design hotel should be,
glamorous and style-savvy. Here, popular culture is
celebrated in a hip, cool and ultimately entertaining
Located only steps from the ocean, off 5th Avenue amid the
bustling center of Playa del Carmen, Basico opens its doors
to a fashionable crowd with 15 rooms distributed over four
White concrete walls, tile floors made in a nearby factory,
and intentionally exposed plumbing and electrical ducts
create the design foundation in these spaces. Surprising are
the floating beds and the details below and above them. For
example, a white Polaroid camera sits above the bed, waiting
to capture special moments, while cameras that survey water
conditions stream video straight into the rooms, via the
plasma screen TV.
The top floor hosts the Azotea Bar and pool area. Two
petroleum tanks serve as pools, offering superb views of the
Caribbean Sea. Customized truck fronts serve as cabanas with
built-in mattresses, while the remaining area is decorated
with sporadically placed chairs and hammocks. In the steamy
evenings, guests enjoy the sea breeze accompanied by the
sounds of local DJs, a marimba and the projection of
tropical films on the surrounding walls.

culture and will appeal to youthful national and foreign
