Once you've got your cocktail in hand, Boli's will beckon you deeper inside where you can enjoy mingling with guests amid pool tables, ping pong, the library and televisions.

Cocina Restaurant

Cocina Restaurant - Mahekal Beach Resort - Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Cocina offers a fresh take on Playa del Carmen restaurants, exploring cultures and cuisines that span across Yucatan, Mexican and Latin America.

Instead, Cocina serves up delectable cuisine in a bountiful buffet that allows you to travel the world bite by bite.

Warm and inviting, Cocina is the heart of the resort offering Playa del Carmen dining with a global twist. Simply walking down the buffet will take you on a cultural journey through mutliple cuisines that are certain to make your mouth water. In addition to delicious dishes including fresh ceviches, succulent steak with jalapeño chimmichurri and crisp yucca fries, the Playa del Carmen restaurant offers some serious Bohemian flair. Encaustic tiles add a touch of whimsy while muted candlelight will make you want to cozy up and stay a while.

Las Olas Restaurant and Bar

Las Olas Restaurant and Bar - Mahekal Beach Resort - Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

The pinnacle of Mahekal's Playa del Carmen restaurants, Las Olas Restaurant and Bar serves up enticing regional specialties for breakfast, lunch and specialty dinner nights. Whether you join us for a leisurely breakfast featuring warm conchas and fresh coffee or a mouthwatering lunch of a tradional Mexican club sandwich, Las Olas is certain to satisfy any craving.

Indulge in authentic Playa del Carmen dining for breakfast lunch and dinner at Las Olas Restaurant and Bar. This beachfront Playa del Carmen restaurant offers incredible cuisine with a side of breathtaking ocean views. Breakfast is marked by the aroma of fresh coffee being brewed to perfectly complement warm, soft conchas fresh from the oven that you can enjoy as you look over the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea. Lunch packs another punch with traditional Mexican cuisine. The Mexican club sandwich is on the lighter side, but is full of flavor as slow roasted turkey is layered with chipotle mayo and served alongside crisp yucca chips. Of course, dinner, served in Las Olas on select nights, is an excellent time to enjoy this restaurant's unique ambiance as it features rustic Mexican-made tables and incredible chandeliers that perfectly refract the muted lighting along a subtle color palette of soft yellow and sand. It's also the perfect opportunity to sample our signature cocktail, an effervescent Paloma made with fresh grapefruit juice and fruit infused tequila.
