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 a hydrotherapy session. You can also catch some rays by one of three pools 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 a day).

    • Free Breakfast

    • Free WiFi

    With an air of tropical romance and intimate surroundings, this couples-only resort on the southwestern coast of Isla Mujeres especially appeals to those in pursuit of a honeymoon or destination wedding retreat. What Isla Mujeres Palace lacks in size guests say it makes up for in personalized service. And while there are only 62 of them, each guest room comes with a private balcony, double Jacuzzi, minibar and flat-screen LCD TV. Your meals are covered by the all-inclusive cost, but there is only one restaurant, Azul. (Recent visitors, though, say the food is varied and delicious, so you probably won't get bored). But while the beach and pool are lovely, some guests can start to go a little stir-crazy without the constant excitement that Cancun's mainland hotels bring. However, if it's quiet seclusion you want, then Isla Mujeres Palace can deliver.

    Nestled near the northern tip of Isla Mujeres, the Privilege Aluxes Isla Mujeres offers a variety of all-inclusive packages that cater to couples, R&R-seekers and adventurous types alike. During your stay, you can enjoy meals at three restaurants before embarking on a snorkel and scuba diving adventure, a fishing expedition or a tour of Isla Mujeres Turtle Farm. If you would rather relax on the property grounds, you can claim a spot by the Privilege Aluxes' pool or beach with a drink in hand or enjoy an afternoon siesta in your digs. All accommodations are appointed with an iPod dock and speakers, a minibar and an LCD TV. Past lodgers praised the guest rooms' features, as well as the hotel's proximity to Hidalgo Street and its nightlife, though some caution that Privilege Aluxes Isla Mujeres doesn't offer much in terms of on-site entertainment. Still, for a relaxing retreat, past visitors agree the Privilege Aluxes is an excellent bet. Along with a full-service spa, the resort also boasts three on-site restaurants.
