weekly calendar of complimentary events ranges from cooking classes to salsa dancing and beachfront yoga. Guest rooms are luxuriously appointed, with a variety of settings to please those who want to feel like they are close to the action (beachfront rooms and palapas), as well as those who want to feel like they are a million miles away from it all (Treehouse rooms and palapas). Across the board, there is consistency among the luxurious fit and finish of all guest rooms, such as a lively color palette and textural touches, including stone, wood and natural fibers. The diversity of accommodations and amenities draws a varied clientele, from families to honeymooners. Hanging next to the entrance of my Oceanfront Casita was a customized hand-painted ceramic welcome sign (which I was happy to bring home with me). To take advantage of the constant coastal breezes and the theatre provided by parade of humanity meandering up and down the beach throughout the day, a crocheted hammock was strung just outside my front door. Constructed with a soaring traditional palapa-style roof, my room was dotted with thoughtful touches that imbued it with a sense of place. Significant among these were pieces of pottery from Oaxaca, and a silk rebozos from Michoacán state gracing the foot of the bed. Still under private ownership, Mahekal's diminutive size in relation to neighboring properties affords it an admirable amount of personalized service within either a room-rate only European Plan, or a Modified American Plan, which provides breakfast and the choice of lunch or dinner daily. "We are able to provide an extra level of service because there is no corporate red tape to contend with," said Gombos. slmag.net 41 Revive Spa
