The Fives Oceanfront is located in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, a small fishing village just 15 minutes from Cancun’s International Airport.  The luxurious retreat offers all-inclusive vacations to travelers seeking a laidback experience.

The property features 94 spacious residential-style suites and penthouses with one, two, and three bedrooms. All suites are equipped with Smart televisions with satellite channels and Bluetooth audio systems.

Ranging from approximately 646 square feet to more than 5,900 square feet, the suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows that lead to furnished balconies, with a mixture of hot tubs and private pools. Accommodations include free wifi, air conditioning, a microwave, a coffee machine, a hairdryer, and a desk.

The property houses two infinity pools, one on the rooftop deck and the other an infinity-edge pool overlooking the turquoise water.

The hotel is also home to the first RoMarley Beach House by Rohan Marley, son of Bob Marley.

Dining options vary from gourmet oceanfront restaurants to casual dining with freshly prepared Mexican staples. In addition to venues at the RoMarley Beach House and on the Rooftop, the hotel’s signature restaurant offers a Mediterranean concept.

The Spa consists of 3 treatment cabins as well as a pre-treatment relaxation area with a sauna, cold and hot jacuzzis, a garden for meditation, and more. Other hotel amenities include a fitness center with Life Fitness equipment.

Guests can enjoy playing table tennis, singing karaoke, or taking advantage of the business center.
