Overview

Couples-only all-inclusive
You'll need a car to explore Cancun's top sites

This couples-only, all-inclusive resort in Cancun's Hotel Zone offers amorous activities for romantically inclined pairs. Sure you can walk on the beach hand in hand, but at Sun Palace you can also enjoy a steam bath or rejuvenating treatment at the spa (for an extra fee) or should you crave more activity, work up a sweat together at the fitness center. Once you're feeling relaxed, you can snag a spot on a chaise lounge, then make your way into the refreshing waters of one of the resort's infinity pools. Along with the plentiful amenities, guests appreciate the variety of food offered at Sun Palace's various restaurants. When you're done with your meal, retreat to one of the resort's romantic guest rooms or suites, which feature whirlpool tubs for two, stocked minibars, complimentary Wi-Fi access and LCD TVs.
