Hotel Description

Here’s something you might not guess just by looking at the photos: Hotel La Semilla owners Alexis Schärer and Angie Rodriguez met while cutting their teeth at the Plaza Athénée, one of New York’s most opulent hotels. Needless to say, the charms of their nine-room Playa del Carmen b&b, a mishmash of cozy public nooks and quirky little rooms furnished with Mexican flea-market finds, are somewhat more down to earth.

Yet the homey eclecticism of La Semilla comes off quite well. It’s all been assembled by a pair of hoteliers with a keen aesthetic sense, cultivated from a life of globe-hopping. Though the form of hospitality on offer is deeply casual, it’s never amateurish. If there are chips in the paint (and there are), if the armchairs don’t match the sofas (and they don’t), it’s because Schärer and Rodriguez think it’s better that way — it adds character. In fact you can usually find them in the kitchen during breakfast, if you want to ask them about it. (If you’re the sort of hotel geek interested in questions of authenticity or the finer points of upcycling, it might be a long conversation.)

Even if you couldn’t care less about all that, you’ll still be inhabiting a world of thoughtful little pleasures. The rooms are small (all but the Suite Terraza are around 200 square feet), but they’re also full of clever touches — a bedside table whose drawers are well-worn leather suitcases, an antique chandelier with an Edison bulb where the candle once would have gone. At the top end of the scale you get a king bed and an outdoor bathtub or shower amidst the foliage, but at every level character reigns supreme.

Please note: Hotel La Semilla is an adults-only hotel. Children under the age of 18 are not permitted.

How to get there:

Hotel La Semilla is just over a mile from Playa del Carmen’s ADO International Bus Station, and about an hour’s drive from Cancún International Airport (CUN). For further information or assistance with transportation, please email CustomerService@TabletHotels.com.
