U.S. News Review

Having opened in 2008, Grand Velas Riviera Maya is a relatively new addition to Playa del Carmen's luxury hotel scene. But this all-inclusive property has already garnered a glowing reputation among its guests. The accommodations impress with whirlpool tubs, 42-inch plasma-screen TVs and more than 1,000 square feet of space. Meanwhile, guests consistently rave about the resort's excellent customer service, its gourmet cuisine and its revitalizing spa treatments. While you can opt for the occasional massage or skin therapy throughout the course of your stay, you should consider the spa's all-inclusive package for extra pampering. As well as treatments, the spa package (and the general all-inclusive package) includes meals at the resort's eight restaurants, 24-hour butler concierge service, access to non-motorized watersports and even tours of nearby attractions. And should you be traveling with kids in tow, sign them up for the Grand Kids Activities Program — they'll have plenty of opportunities to meet new friends while you're catching up on some R&R.
