An adults-only resort in the northern part of Cancun's Hotel Zone, Le Blanc Spa Resort exudes a modern feel with its sleek architecture and neutral-toned color palette. Each of Le Blanc's suites features an Espresso coffee maker, BVLGARI bath products, an LED TV, an iPod docking station and a pillow menu. When booking your room, be sure to request a higher floor and an ocean-facing suite – according to recent visitors, the splurge affords spectacular views and extra quiet that are well worth the nightly rate. If you can tear yourself away from your digs, check out the links on the nearby Moon Spa and Golf Club's Jack Nicklaus Signature course (for an extra fee). Or perhaps you're better suited to a day at Le Blanc Spa, where you can indulge in a massage or hydrotherapy session. You can also catch some rays along the pool or claim a spot on the beach. When hunger sets in, take your pick of Le Blanc's four restaurants or relax in your accommodations and order room service. more

Most lodgers at The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun are wowed by the hotel's upscale atmosphere, especially in its common areas and 365 guest rooms. Decorated in tasteful neutral tones, the guest rooms come equipped with iPod docking stations, deep soaking tubs and furnished balconies or terraces overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The Ritz's signature elegance is also evident in the property's seven dining establishments: Whether it's a grand dining room or a private canopied casita on the beach, guests are in for a decadent experience. However, some guests bemoan the steep price tags served with their meals. But The Ritz really shows its worth on the pool deck, with two pools, an oceanfront whirlpool and creative cocktails prepared by the Coconut Boy. More active guests can strap on some scuba gear and take to the Caribbean Sea or practice their backhand with a pro at the Tennis Center. Located in Cancun's Hotel Zone, this Ritz-Carlton outpost is also part of the Marriott Rewards program. more

Situated less than 5 miles north of its sister property, Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun, this resort boasts all of the alluring amenities of its southern sibling with an extra touch of luxury. It may look like an older hotel from the outside, but each of this Fiesta Americana resort's 602 suites offers expansive views overlooking the Caribbean Sea, as well as balconies and private sitting areas. The relaxing atmosphere extends into the 40,000-square-foot Gem Spa, where you can enjoy a hydrotherapy treatment or a soak in the Sensations Pool. If it's sunshine you seek, head to the resort's lagoon-inspired pool or its palapa-studded beach, which hugs Caribbean waters and offers vistas of Isla Mujeras. Even dining at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach is an elegant affair; guests are consistently wowed by French-Mediterranean cuisine at Le Basilic, as well as the hand-rolled cigars and Mexican fare at La Joya (along with the resort's four other restaurants and bars). Kids can also join in the fun with supervised activities at the kids club. more

Not to be confused with the adjacent JW Marriott Cancun Resort, the 452-room CasaMagna Marriott Cancun boasts beachfront amenities within reach of all the excitement Cancun's Hotel Zone has to offer. But you may be hard-pressed to find a reason to venture off the property: CasaMagna features six sit-down restaurants, a coffee shop and a lobby bar, and according to previous guests, a memorable breakfast buffet at La Capilla Argentine Steakhouse. Drinks are served at Las Ventanas Lobby Bar until midnight; however, guests say that ordering beverages here can deplete your funds quickly. During the day, pass the time lounging by the heated outdoor pool or along the CasaMagna Beach. When it comes time to hit the hay, you'll unwind in comfortable digs appointed with pillow-top mattresses, whirlpool tubs, minibars, 32-inch flat-screen TVs and wireless Internet access (for a fee). Because this hotel is part of the Marriott family, Marriott Rewards members can earn and redeem perks for choosing to stay here. more

If you've come to Cancun to party, then you'll probably want to find another hotel. The Hyatt Zilara Cancun (formerly The Royal Cancun) is all about relaxation and tranquility, which can make this adults-only resort a little too quiet for some travelers. But if quiet is what you're looking for, then book one of the Hyatt's premium suites, which feature ocean views (even in the bathrooms), spacious two-person in-suite whirlpool tubs and handcrafted wood furnishings. Included in the price of your room is access to two pools, including an Olympic-size pool, the hydrotherapy circuit at the spa, the hotel's bicycle center and daily and nightly entertainment. The all-inclusive package also covers meals at seven eateries, including a coffee bar, and unlimited alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages at the resort's five bars. You'll also enjoy room service delivery into your room's "Magic Box" — a compartment that goes from your room to the hallway, allowing resort employees to deliver room service without disturbing you. If you're a Hyatt Gold Passport member, you can earn and redeem points here for stay perks. more

The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort & Spa is conveniently situated in Cancun's Hotel Zone (across from La Isla Shopping Village) and filled with amenities and services that cater to guests of all ages. This resort's pool area is home to both an infinity pool with a swim-up bar for grown-ups and a shallow, kid-friendly pool for younger guests. Plus the villa accommodations are large enough to house the whole family and all are equipped with Westin's signature Heavenly Beds and private balconies or patios that offer sweeping views of the sea. Every villa also comes with standard amenities such as 37-inch flat-screen TVs and high-speed Internet access. Though each villa also features a kitchen or kitchenette, the resort is home to four guest-approved eateries, with everything from fast food options to fine dining. And when parents want some alone time, they can drop off youngsters (ages 4 to 12) at the Westin Kids Club before indulging in a treatment at the Mayan-inspired Heavenly Spa by Westin. Another perk of bedding down here: Because Westin falls under the Starwood hotel brand, Starwood Preferred Guests can earn and redeem their points at this property (though some restrictions do apply at this outpost). more

Golfers rejoice: Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort boasts one of Cancun's two Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, so you can traverse all 27 holes during your stay.
