Barceló Maya Beach Resort

Barceló Maya Beach Resort - Five hotels on a white-sand beach, plus more than 37,000 square feet of pools and water-park features. The Barceló Maya Beach hotel is located within an incredible all inclusive resort on one of the most gorgeous beaches of the Mexican Caribbean along 1.5 miles of white sands, crystal clear water and a coral reef. The hotel, with a Mayan inspired architectural style and design, is surrounded by lush tropical gardens, beautiful roads and paths excellent for running and long walks. (Website)

Grand Velas Riviera Maya

Grand Velas Riviera Maya - Located inside an 80-acre mangrove and jungle reserve, the all-inclusive Grand Velas Riviera Maya has an exotic, faraway feel within easy drive of Playa del Carmen and other Riviera Maya hot spots. Spread along a pristine, white-sand strand, the resort features both adult-only and family areas, and a range of room choices from tranquil Zen suites tucked in the tropical woods away from the beach to spacious oceanfront suites with private plunge pools and views across the water to the twinkling lights of Cozumel. Though the resort’s 75,000-square-foot spa is one of Mexico’s largest, the real treat at Grand Velas are the eight restaurants, which include Frida for veal osso buco in a molé de olla, Sen Lin for Asian fusion, and Cocina de Autor for Spanish-inspired molecular Mexican Caribbean cuisine.

Maroma Resort & Spa

Maroma Resort & Spa - Set amid lush foliage between Cancún and Tulum, Maroma is one a clutch of standout hotels along a prime swath of Riviera Maya beachfront. There you’ll find nine new Sian Nah (Mayan for “house of heaven”) Suites, each with its own plunge pool; a unique self-serve mud bar at the 7,000-square-foot, Mayan-inspired Kinan Spa; El Sol restaurant, serving modern Mayan-Creole dishes; and a fleet of waterfront beds. The 65 original, thatched-roof bungalows have also been spruced up with luxe linens, handpainted Mexican tiles, and handwoven hammocks and rugs. The charming staff, from the maids who scatter bougainvillea blossoms on your bed to the waiters who prepare guacamole tableside, elevate the experience from mundane to genuinely personal. (Website)

Occidental Grand Xcaret

Occidental Grand Xcaret - This Riviera Maya resort borders the eco-archaeological Xcaret Park and offers everything from snorkeling to spa treatments. Tucked within an ecological and historical preserve, the all-inclusive Occidental Grand Xcaret captivates guests with spectacular grounds, a pristine coastline and unparalleled service and amenities. Located less than an hour south of Cancun International Airport and 10 minutes from renowned Playa del Carmen, this glorious resort boasts, free-form pools and a private beach with powder-soft white sand on a quiet cove. The Occidental Grand Xcaret features 11 international restaurants and 10 bars to fit every mood and occasion, from a romantic dinner to a lively family meal. (Website)

Secrets Maroma Beach

Secrets Maroma Beach - Popular with honeymooners, the adults-only Secrets Maroma Beach is the type of place made for active couples. Most of the 412 rooms have ocean views, and many swim-out suites have direct access to one of 12 pools straight from a private back patio. With countless day and evening activities—from kayaking and windsurfing to water aerobics and dance lessons, plus 14 restaurants and bars—no one complains of boredom. But when the urge to do nothing strikes, the expansive infinity pool is a chillspot for taking in the Caribbean Sea. (Website)

Valentin Imperial Maya

Valentin Imperial Maya - Although it’s infused with the rustic charms of a casual Mexican hacienda, the low-rise Valentin Imperial Maya has all the requisite resort amenities: an exclusive, adults-only vibe; a 46,000-square-foot pool; and a secluded swath of shoreline along the Riviera Maya’s Playa del Secreto, on the eastern shore of the Yucatán. Here, arched doorways, tiled corridors, and a central fountain plaza create a colonial feel, while all 540 neutral-toned suites are more modern (consider the marble bathrooms). Across the 136 acres, sarong-clad travelers meander between the sprawling spa, six pools, and nine restaurants, which includes La Hacienda, for the signature Pueblan chicken mole. (Website)
