    Rosewood Mayakoba
    Playa del Carmen
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2040 reviewsTripAdvisor (2040)

    Free WiFi

    Rosewood Mayakoba fully immerses guests in the Riviera Maya's beauty through its architecture and design. Not only is it flanked by the region's famed crystalline sands and lush jungle, the resort is also constructed from local materials, such as Yucatan limestone and regional wood. Visitors especially praise the private outdoor deck and heated plunge pool attached to each of the property's 129 suites. And the welcome tequila, daily restocked fruit bowl and personal butler services exemplify an above-par level of hospitality. The culinary offerings at Rosewood Mayakoba's three restaurants are another point of praise among recent guests. And, despite their high price tags, visitors say the unique treatments at Sense, A Rosewood Spa are well worth the indulgence. Once you're feeling relaxed, perfect your swing at the adjacent El Camaleon golf course or soak up your surroundings with a kayaking or snorkeling adventure. You'll find this Rosewood outpost just north of downtown Playa del Carmen in the Mayakoba resort complex.

    Consistently lauded by publications like Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler, this stylish member of the Viceroy Resorts clan has a long-standing reputation to uphold. And aside from a few complaints about high room rates, Viceroy Riviera Maya also wins the hearts of its guests. Surrounded by white sands and verdant jungle – just north of downtown Playa del Carmen – this intimate resort encompasses 41 villa-style accommodations designed to mirror the Riviera Maya's impressive landscape. Rooms are appointed with private plunge pools and outdoor rain showers and hammocks, plus creature comforts like Bose radios and satellite TVs. Recent guests recommend dining alfresco at Coral Grill & Bar, which pairs seaside scenery with enticing dishes like traditional tortilla soup and homemade paella. But past patrons assure you won't be disappointed with a meal at La Marea Restaurant, which offers a sophisticated setting and flavorful seafood dishes. And though the therapeutic massages and revitalizing body treatments at the Spa at Viceroy Riviera Maya come attached to steep price tags, past guests assure the services are well worth the extra cost.

    At NIZUC Resort & Spa guests can expect seclusion and luxury on all of this property's 29 acres. Situated on the south end of Cancun's Hotel Zone in Punta Nizuc, this resort offers spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and prime snorkeling along the Mesoamerican Reef. The 274 villas and suites all feature Nespresso coffee makers, along with minibars and private balconies or terraces with garden or ocean views. Private Pool Villas even feature infinity pools with waterfalls. Sun-seekers can drop the children off at Winik's Kids Club for activities like cooking lessons and ceramic painting before heading to the resort's two private beaches or one of the three infinity pools. The relaxing vibes continue at the NIZUC Spa by ESPA, which offers Mayan-influenced treatments. But what really stands out at NIZUC Resort & Spa is the food. You can choose from six restaurants that serve gourmet cuisine, but if you're looking for a memorable experience, consider reserving a night at the chef's table or arranging a private dinner on the beach. From the delectable cuisine to the private atmosphere, recent visitors couldn't be more complimentary of the hotel, describing the overall experience as simply incredible. If you're a member of the I Prefer rewards program, you can cash in or accrue points for choosing to stay here.

    Situated on a secluded perch along Playa del Carmen's northern coast, the Asian-inspired Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers vacationers easy access to the Riviera Maya's maze of mangrove forests, freshwater lagoons and, of course, the second-largest coral reef system in the world. Apart from communing with nature, guests can unwind in their villas, which feature Mayan-inspired decor, floor-to-ceiling windows and private pools and sun decks. If you're not one to stay cooped up, Banyan Tree Mayakoba also features a bevy of on-site facilities, including the Sands beach club, a free-form pool and a spa that pampers with signature treatments like The Rainforest hydrothermal therapy session. The resort's numerous dining facilities also earn praise, but for an unforgettable meal, book a seat aboard the romantic Ixchel dinner boat, which cruises through the scenic Mayakoba lagoon.

    An adults-only, all-inclusive 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 a Keurig coffee maker, a two-person whirlpool tub, an LED TV, BVLGARI toiletries and butler service. 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 Palace Cancun's Jack Nicklaus Signature course. Or perhaps you're better suited to a day at BlancSpa, 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 (available 24 hours).

    Fairmont Mayakoba, Riviera Maya
    Playa del Carmen, MX
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 5247 reviewsTripAdvisor (5247)

    Sandwiched between the Asian-influenced Banyan Tree Mayakoba and the sensual Rosewood Mayakoba, this member of the AccorHotels family upholds its brand's standards along this luxurious stretch of sand just north of Playa del Carmen. The property houses 401 guest rooms and suites, all of which come outfitted in tropical-inspired decor, spacious soaking tubs, LCD televisions and Le Labo toiletries. The resort, which is nestled within 240 acres of tropical forest, also sits next to the PGA Championship El Camaleón golf course. Additionally, the property features the 37,000-square-foot Willow Stream Spa and three on-site restaurants (not including the two grab-and-go cafes, the two pool bars and the lobby lounge). And if you're traveling with children, take them to the Kids Club (for ages 4 to 12), where they can spend their days making piñatas or origami souvenirs. To make the most of your stay at the Fairmont Mayakoba, Riviera Maya, consider booking one of the resort's promotional packages. But be careful: Some guests warn that the property's high food and drink prices can quickly raise your final bill.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 14454 reviewsTripAdvisor (14454)
    Free WiFi

    Perched on 2 miles of chalky white sand along the Playa Mujeres peninsula, this all-inclusive Excellence outpost offers guests gorgeous surroundings. Suites are appointed with Jacuzzi tubs, satellite TVs, pillow menus, stocked minibars and private balconies or patios. But you shouldn't stay cooped up indoors. Outside, the seven swimming pools, 11 bars and long stretches of sand offer ample opportunities for relaxation. As for dining, you'll have 10 venues to choose from, though past visitors suggest dining at Chez Isabelle, citing its tasty French plates, attentive service and romantic atmosphere as particularly memorable. And for an extra dose of R&R, sign up for a replenishing treatment at the Miilé Spa (not covered by the all-inclusive package). If you're craving some more activity, dance lessons, cooking classes and an introductory scuba lesson are all covered in your nightly rate. (Plus, Cancun is roughly 8 miles south.) Just keep in mind this Playa Mujeres retreat is adults-only, so if you're traveling with children, you'll want to book elsewhere.
