    Changing Tides: New villas and other upgrades

    The Viceroy Riviera Maya, formerly the Tides Riviera Maya, is adding beachfront accommodations and upgrading other public areas of the resort.

    Two of the 11 new villas will be situated right at the sand's edge. As with all the villas here, the new ones will have private plunge pools, private outdoor showers and what Viceroy calls a "Mayordomo" team that provides an array of butler and concierge services for all villas.

    The resort goes out of its way to add intimacy to guest stays. Guests can take their meals or drinks anytime and anywhere. Breakfast can be had poolside; sunset cocktails and canapes can be enjoyed in the villa; dinner will be served at a private table on the beach; or lunch can be eaten in the seclusion of a palapa.
