    Rosewood Mayakoba

    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.

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.

    The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun
    Cancun
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3415 reviewsTripAdvisor (3415)
    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 six dining establishments: Whether it's a grand dining room or a private canopied casita on the beach, guests are in for a decadent experience. And though some guests bemoan the steep price tags served with their meals, many say you should splurge for at least one meal here because the food is worth it. But The Ritz really shows its worth on the pool deck, with two pools, an oceanfront whirlpool and pool valet services. 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 Bonvoy program.

    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).

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.

    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.

Or, if you really want to up the relaxation, indulge in a treatment at the spa.

    Ideal for families, this resort in the Riviera Maya earns kudos for its spacious suites, caring staff and multiple pools. You'll have your pick of one- to four-bedroom suites, each equipped with either a kitchenette or full kitchen, a terrace, a flat-screen TV and free Wi-Fi access. In addition to the accommodations, the resort's roster of activities and facilities also impressed guests. When you're not soaking up the sun at the pool or the beach, indulge in a treatment at the spa, get a workout in at the 24-hour gym or make use of the resort's nonmotorized water sports equipment, tennis courts and bicycles. Aside from the ample amenities, the kids club also impressed lodgers with its variety of supervised activities, including sand art, face painting and air hockey. What's more, children 12 and younger stay for free. Where the resort fell short, according to reviewers, was in its restaurant offerings. Though the property offers two restaurants and an on-site beach bar and grill, the menu options can get repetitive if you're on the all-inclusive meal plan, recent guests noted. The hotel also offers a lobby cafe and bar and a pool bar, plus a small grocery store. Keep in mind, Leaders Club members can earn or redeem perks here. You'll find the Grand Residences Riviera Cancun about 2 miles south of Puerto Morelos, and about halfway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

    Catching up on some quality rest and relaxation comes naturally to guests staying at the Blue Diamond Riviera Maya. This relatively small adults-only resort – which has just 128 rooms and suites – sprawls across beige sands and sits roughly 6 miles north of central Playa del Carmen. Blue Diamond Riviera Maya keeps things simple and classy – guest suites come outfitted in crisp, white decor with rich wood accents, floor-to-ceiling windows and a terrace or garden, not to mention high-end amenities like outdoor bathtubs, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, and in some rooms, private plunge pools. Guests love the look and feel of Blue Diamond Riviera Maya, but they're even more impressed by all that's included in the room rate. A stay at this all-inclusive resort covers not only access to three pools, three restaurants and beachfront concierge services, but also includes access to an 18-hole golf course, yoga classes and a fitness center. What's more, the property features the Spa by Blue Diamond, which offers unique therapies like seaweed wraps and hot stone massages.

    The beachfront location of the Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort is one of the amenities recent guests loved most about this sprawling property. The resort is also within walking distance of Playa del Carmen attractions, such as the Playa del Carmen Beach and La Quinta Avenida, where you'll find numerous shops and restaurants. Other highlights include the personable and helpful staff, the fresh gourmet cuisine served at the three on-site restaurants and the Cenote Spa, which boasts a hydrotherapy area, eight treatment suites, a fitness center, a lap pool and an extensive list of spa and salon services. The 314 guest rooms and suites feature local woods and fabrics, balcony views of the Caribbean Sea or preserved mangroves, and include amenities like Grand Hyatt Beds, walk-in showers, double sinks, flat-screen TVs, coffee makers, high-speed internet access and floor-to-ceiling windows. Some rooms and suites also have private plunge pools and furnished terraces. Recent visitors also liked that you could choose your own meal plan, but several warned that there is a pricey fee attached if you lose your meal plan bracelet, so make sure to keep an eye on it. And remember: If you're a member of the brand's loyalty program, you can earn or redeem points for choosing to bed down here.
