    IBEROSTAR Playa Mita, located just north of Puerto Vallarta in Riviera Nayarit (a 200-mile stretch of Mexican coastline along the Pacific), is an all-inclusive resort that garners praise with its fine dining and recreational options, though a few guests note its isolated location isn't necessarily convenient for getting to town. On-site, the resort has five restaurants, ranging from fine dining Japanese cuisine to casual Mexican food, and many guests advise making reservations if you want to eat at a specific restaurant during your stay. For recreation, this IBEROSTAR offers a kids club, a disco, an on-site tennis court and a golf course, plus free water sports rental equipment, including kayaks and windsurfing boards. Guests looking for a low-key experience should head to Sensations Spa, which has private treatment rooms, a salon and an isolated garden. The huge outdoor pool has a swim-up bar and lounge chairs that overlook the beach, just steps away. IBEROSTAR Playa Mita's secluded location and all-inclusive atmosphere attracts leisure-seekers and families as opposed to those looking for endless nightlife entertainment.

    Hyatt Ziva Cancun is an all-inclusive resort located on the white-sand beaches of Cancun. Guests who stay here receive complimentary meals at nine eateries and free drinks at seven lounges and bars, including a local microbrewery. There is also a KidZ club, three infinity pools that overlook the Caribbean Sea, snorkeling gear, beach and pool cabanas, beach volleyball courts, a tennis court, live entertainment, a spa and a fitness center with Pilates classes. The 547 rooms and suites start at 483 square feet and feature terraces or balconies, complimentary minibars, free Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TVs, marble bathrooms with separate showers, king-sized beds and an additional queen-sized sofa bed. Recent guests said this Hyatt is an excellent choice for vacationing families, given all of the kid-friendly amenities, but couples also said this is a great place to reconnect over cocktails, salsa dancing and couples massages. Plus, many recent vacationers described the service throughout the property as stellar, though several mentioned check-in was slow. Another perk, though, is that this resort is under the Hyatt brand, meaning members of the loyalty program can accrue or redeem points while staying here.

    The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort Villas & Spa, Cancun

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 6481 reviewsTripAdvisor (6481)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort & Spa is conveniently situated in Cancun's Hotel Zone (across from La Isla Shopping Village) and filled with amenities and services that cater to guests of all ages. This resort's pool area is home to both an infinity pool with a swim-up bar for grown-ups and a shallow, kid-friendly pool for younger guests. Plus the villa accommodations are large enough to house the whole family and all are equipped with Westin's signature Heavenly Beds and private balconies or patios that offer sweeping views of the sea. Every villa also comes with standard amenities such as flat-screen TVs and high-speed Internet access. Though each villa also features a kitchen or kitchenette, the resort is home to four guest-approved eateries. And when parents want some alone time, they can drop off youngsters (ages 4 to 12) at the Westin Kids Club before indulging in a treatment at the Mayan-inspired Heavenly Spa by Westin. Another perk of bedding down here: Because Westin falls under the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    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.

    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. It may look like an older property from the outside, but each of this resort's 602 suites offers expansive views overlooking the Caribbean Sea, as well as terraces and private sitting areas. The relaxing atmosphere extends into the 40,000-square-foot Gem Spa, where you can enjoy a hydrotherapy treatment or a soak in the Sensations Pool. If it's sunshine you seek, head to the resort's lagoon-inspired pool or its palapa-studded beach, which hugs Caribbean waters and offers vistas of Isla Mujeras. Even dining at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun is an elegant affair; guests are consistently wowed by the French-Mediterranean cuisine served at Le Basilic, as well as the hand-rolled cigars and Mexican fare found at La Joya (along with the resort's four other restaurants and bars). Kids can also join in the fun with supervised activities at the Coral KidZ Club. What's more, because of the hotel's Preferred ties, it allows members of the I Prefer program to earn or redeem points for stays here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1210 reviewsTripAdvisor (1210)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    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.

    Although its secluded location on the northern edge of town may pose a challenge for some sightseers, Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay Resort spares its guests from the crowded beaches and noisy surroundings of Mazatlan's Golden Zone. The 20-acre, palm tree-laden property faces the Pacific Ocean and features a sprawling pool with prime coastal views. The resort's 378 suites and villas also offer striking vistas from their private balconies and terraces. Accommodations also feature kitchenettes, satellite TVs and Wi-Fi access. Some guests note that the room decor feels a little dated, but overall, recent visitors were pleased with their accommodations; for the best views, travelers recommend booking a room on one of the upper floors. Another bonus: Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay offers an all-inclusive optional rate that covers meals and drinks at any of the on-site restaurants and bars (and shuttle service to sister property Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán), plus a variety of daily activities, including Spanish lessons and guided hikes. However, a rejuvenating massage at The Armonia Spa at Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay will cost extra.

    Generations Riviera Maya by Karisma is an all-suite, all-inclusive resort that sits about halfway between Playa del Carmen and Cancun on the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. The beachfront resort offers 162 suites, all with large balconies or terraces. Some larger suites are equipped with swim-up balconies that connect to the infinity pool. Guests are complimentary of the spacious accommodations and also praise the customer service and variety of food found at the restaurants. Generations Riviera Maya boasts five dining spots that serve Mexican, Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, as well as several bars – one of which is a swim-up bar. The resort welcomes children, and the hotel's Eko Kids Club offers supervised games and enrichment activities for guests ages 4 to 12. Both kids and adults will enjoy the hotel's infinity pool that stretches along the length of the resort, as well as the Jacuzzis available in every suite. Although guests were overwhelmingly positive of the resort's pools and restaurants, some were critical of the property's small, rocky beach. Next to the resort are two of Karisma's other Riviera Maya properties, El Dorado Casitas Royale and El Dorado Royale, and guests ages 18 and older can use the facilities at both of these locations.

    Past visitors cite the manicured grounds and four swimming pools as the real wow factors of the all-inclusive Barceló Puerto Vallarta resort. Its 316 spacious suites also receive a nod of approval for their minibars, living rooms and balconies or terraces. After a good night's sleep, treat yourself to a varied and tasty breakfast buffet at La Fuente Restaurant (there are also three other on-site eateries and two snack bars if you get hungry during the day). For an extra dose of luxury while the kiddos enjoy activities at the Barcy Club (designed for guests ages 5 to 12), book a replenishing massage or body treatment at U-Spa. However, keep in mind that this resort is located just over 12 miles south of Puerto Vallarta, so you'll need a car to visit the city and drive to and from the airport.

But what sets this Hotel Riu Palace Riviera Maya apart from its sister property is its sweeping views and top-notch service. The property's 400 rooms provide impressive sea views from their private balconies or terraces; you can enjoy the scenery with a drink in hand thanks to the in-suite liquor dispensers. All guest rooms also feature perks like complimentary Wi-Fi and satellite TVs. Plus previous visitors rave that the employees at this RIU property are extremely friendly  some travelers said Hotel Riu Palace Riviera Maya's staff members went out of their way to make everything even more enjoyable.

    Flanked by the secluded sands, aquamarine waters and pristine fairways of the Los Cabos corridor, One&Only Palmilla offers a long list of high-end amenities. You can rejuvenate with a deep tissue massage at the spa before retreating to your room, which comes with a flat-screen TV, a Bose audio system, Lady Primrose bath products and a balcony or patio that overlooks the Sea of Cortez or the Pacific Ocean. If you're looking for more activity, break out your irons and take a swing along the resort's 27-hole golf course or visit the concierge to sign up for a scuba or snorkeling adventure or a deep-sea fishing excursion. When hunger sets in, head to SEARED, the celebrated on-site restaurant helmed by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. While some past visitors bemoaned the exorbitant menu prices, others said the steakhouse fare is well worth the high price tags. Plus, the resort offers three other eateries to choose from that serve everything from traditional ceviches to inventive sushi dishes.

    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.

    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.

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.

When the day is over, hunker down in a guest room or suite appointed with a double whirlpool tub, Wi-Fi access, 24-hour room service and an LCD satellite TV. Past guests advise booking a room closer to the lobby on the second or third floor for the best ocean views.

    The Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa's enviable location gives it an edge over other Puerto Vallarta area resorts. Though situated just south of the airport, this Marriott branch maintains a peaceful atmosphere and pristine beach. If you're looking to hit the links, a stay at the Marriott Puerto Vallarta puts you less than half a mile from Marina Vallarta Golf Club and less than 7 miles from the Vista Vallarta Golf Club. And while the food at the property's four restaurants and two on-site bars garner mixed reviews, guests here are within reach of the many restaurants found at the nearby marina. However, you'll want to stay on the resort's grounds to take full advantage of its multiple pools and whirlpool or relax with a massage or a yoga class at the Ohtli Spa and Fitness Center. Whether you've spent the day lounging on the grounds or swinging on the greens, you can rest your head on a signature Marriott "Revive" bed in one of the Marriott Puerto Vallarta's modern guest rooms and suites. Each room features bright, Mexican-inspired accents and comes outfitted with a private balcony or terrace, a 42-inch TV, an iPod docking station and Wi-Fi access (for an additional fee). And because of this resort's Marriott ties, guests with Marriott Bonvoy points can cash them in here for perks.

    The Hard Rock Cancun is the place to stay if you're looking to live it up like a rock star in the middle of Cancun's Hotel Zone. With seven bars and a nightclub on the property, you certainly won't find yourself lacking for entertainment. The rocker attitude continues into this Hard Rock's six restaurants, most of which do not require reservations or a suit jacket, for that matter. Even the rooms seem like they're straight out of "MTV Cribs," with each containing an in-room hydro spa tub, satellite LCD TV, balcony and Hard Rock liquor dispenser. But just because your bedroom can double as a bar doesn't mean that the Hard Rock isn't kid-friendly: Guests enjoy the ability to drop the youngsters off at the Kids before getting pampered with a deep-tissue massage at Rock Spa. You can always hit the lagoon-style pool or beach together later. And if you came to Cancun to take advantage of its flowing fairways, you'll be happy to know that the hotel staff can arrange tee times and lessons at the nearby 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course at the Riviera Cancun Golf Club.

    Overlooking the Sea of Cortez from its 12-acre Los Cabos corridor perch, Cabo Azul Resort attracts those looking for dramatic scenery and an exclusive experience. You can take a dip in the three-level infinity pool, indulge in a snorkeling excursion or head to scenic links for a round of golf at nearby Palmilla Golf Club or Cabo Real. Afterward, venture to the property's PAZ Body & Mind Spa to soothe your muscles in a cabana-style treatment room. Once you're feeling relaxed, escape to your well-appointed suite or villa. Each is outfitted with stone flooring, a walk-in shower, a king-sized bed and a private patio terrace. Recent travelers highly recommend splurging on an ocean view room for exceptional vistas. According to a few previous guests, the only downside to staying here is the high price of the dishes and drinks served at Javier's Restaurant & Bar and Flor de Noche. That said, many said the on-site market, El Mercado, offers plenty of coffee, pastries and snacks to satiate your appetite at a lower cost.

If you have any leftover energy, sign up for a Pilates, yoga or cycling class at the fitness center. What's more, thanks to Hyatt's family ties, if you participate in the brand's loyalty program, you can collect and redeem points and enjoy extra benefits for choosing to stay here.

    Vacationers head to Puerto Vallarta's Sunset Plaza Beach Resort & Spa for customized pampering – and what could be more personalized than having access to your own butler? Guests here rave about their butlers, who cater to every whim (from claiming beach chairs to arranging airport transportation to shining your shoes before dinner). Another main selling point, according to previous guests: The gourmet cuisine at Sunset Plaza's eateries, especially the Italian fare at Lucciano. And even without the optional all-inclusive package, previous visitors say that the prices here are reasonable. After dinner, head back to your spacious guest room or suite – all accommodations feature 32-inch LCD televisions, iPod docking stations and private terraces facing the ocean. For even more personalization, you can choose your preferred scent from an aroma menu. And while there is a lack of poolside and nighttime entertainment, many guests insist that the quiet atmosphere was exactly what they were looking for.

    With secluded sands, five pools and spacious accommodations, the Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Hacienda del Mar caters to R&R-seekers. However, adventurous types can take advantage of a bevy of outdoor activities off of the property grounds. Golfers looking to perfect their swings can arrange a tee time with the hotel concierge at one of two nearby golf courses. And those looking to crank up the luxury on land can sign up for a decadent treatment at the Cactus Spa before escaping to their guest rooms' Sheraton Sweet Sleeper beds, minibars and private terraces or balconies. As far as dining goes, you'll have your pick of four on-site restaurants, though guests especially recommend De Cortez Grill and Restaurant for its versatile menu and superior service. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here. You'll find the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar situated just 7 miles east of downtown Cabo San Lucas.

    Located in Cabo San Lucas, this sprawling all-inclusive resort lures travelers with its enviable access to the downtown area, as well as its versatile array of family-friendly amenities. Traveling clans praise the resort's children's pool, Kids Club (for guests ages 4 to 11) and youth-friendly dining venues. Plus, the airy accommodations – appointed with kitchenettes, living areas and ocean-facing balconies or patios – provide optimal space for larger groups. Parents looking to unwind can sign up for a massage or body treatment at the award-winning Armonia Spa at Sunset Beach, while golfers can venture to pristine fairways at the nearby Quivira Golf Club, situated next to Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort (note: these activities are not covered in the all-inclusive room rates). When you're ready to refuel, you'll have your pick of several on-site dining establishments. However, not all are included in the all-inclusive rates, and some – like LaFrida – require an extra cover fee per person. Should this pose a problem, just stroll into downtown Cabo San Lucas to sample some authentic dishes and get a taste of the lively cultural scene.

    The pool complex is the real standout at the JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa. Guests are consistently wowed by this resort's two outdoor free-form pools, the 14-foot dive pool (with an artificial reef) and the smattering of whirlpools around the property. And previous visitors give the on-site eateries – some of which are shared with the adjacent CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort – a nod of approval for their quality service and varied menu options. Past guests also raved about the property's guest rooms and suites, which feature private balconies that boast ocean views, spacious bathrooms, Wi-Fi access (for a fee) and 49-inch flat-panel TVs. Upgrade to a Club 91 accommodation for views from the resort's top floor, access to the Club 91 Lounge and other exclusive amenities, such as Club lounge access. Even if you don't spring for a Club 91 room, Marriott Bonvoy members will be able to earn or cash in points for perks at this JW Marriott resort.

    Easily recognized by its bright yellow exterior, The Royal Haciendas all-inclusive resort overlooks the Caribbean Sea from its seat on the north end of Playa del Carmen. Guests are consistently impressed by the accommodations here; visitors have their choice of a junior, one-bedroom or two-bedroom suite, although previous guests recommend opting for more space in order to have access to a private whirlpool tub and full kitchen. All suites feature a private balcony overlooking the ocean, ample living space and TVs with DVD players. Meanwhile, The Royal Haciendas all-inclusive package grants unlimited access to the resort's two restaurants, bars and ample on-site facilities (like six pools, whirlpools, three tennis courts and nonmotorized water sports equipment). However, the customer service receives mixed reviews from past visitors; some say the customer service was not on par with other resorts in the area, while others describe the staff as pleasant and accommodating.
