The Reef 28 Rooftop


There is a full rooftop wait staff that will bring you food and drinks from Arriba. I sat back and relaxed in my daybed while I was catered to with cocktails and food service delived to me on a relaxing bed. You can even get your drink delivered to you while you are swimming in the pool or Jacuzzi!

The Reef 28 main attraction is their rooftop pool and lounge areas! Their Rooftop has an infinity pool and indoor spa pool, both with towel service and poolside dining.Options at The Reef 28.

What I truly loved about The Reef 28 that makes this rooftop more special than any of the rooftops in Playa Del Carmen is the plethora of lounging and relaxing areas. So many chairs, daybeds, cabanas you will have choices while you listening to some tunes from a live on-site DJ during the day and night!



Satisfy your hunger, and your thirst… with unlimited, delicious drinks and on-property access to world-class, authentic Mexican cuisine and more with the 2 main dinner restaurants and late night bar setting!


Asiatico brings Far East flavors into light and elegant dishes.

Cachito Mexican Cuisine

Cachito is The Reef 28’s hot spot for authentic Mexican cuisine.

The Reef Sunday Brunch

Non-guests can also come and enjoy the brunch on Sundays from 11 am until 5 pm with live harpist included. The rate is $700 MXN per adult and $350 MXN per kid (although this is an adult-only resort, kids are welcome to the brunch spread).


Be pampered… with massages, hydrotherapy treatments, facials, or authentic spa rituals at the gorgeous Okom Spa with wellness, relaxation, and indulgence abound.

A top premiere perk while staying at The Reef 28 and any of  The Reef resort properties is that guest get full shuttle and access to the all-inclusive family friendly beach clubs located at our sister properties The Reef Playacar & The Reef Coco Beach. So unlike other resorts where you are just there for your entire trip, you have options to explore daily the other The Reef properties and relax, dine and explore with them as well – so its almost a 3 for 1 resort vacation deal!

People who aren’t guest can ask for their ‘Simplemente fabuloso’ Reef 28 card by showing their ID at the reception. This card provides a 20% discount for food and beverages in all the property.

Disconnect or reconnect… at an adults-only property where every amenity is designed to let you be you — bring a loved one or make new friends. It’s all possible at The Reef 28.
