Cancún + The Riviera Maya

Hotels in Cancún + The Riviera Maya

Popular with honeymooners, the adults-only Secrets Maroma Beach is the type of place made for active couples. Most of the 412 rooms have ocean views, and many swim-out suites have direct access to one of 12 pools straight from a private back patio.

The infinity pool, meditation room, and thatched-roof palapas buildings give this small resort plenty of quiet, tropical touches. There are no televisions, telephones, or alarm clocks in the 10 rooms and suites.

Villa del Palmar is a part of Playa Mujeres, a new resort development on the Caribbean with a Greg Norman golf course and tropical oceanfront grounds. It’s only 30 minutes from Cancún’s easily accessible international airport, but it’s a world away from the city’s party scene.

This eco-friendly boutique has 24 thatched-roof cabanas with thatched roofs and rustic designs that include East Asian hints such as Buddha statuettes and incense burners. Beds are draped with netting that serves the dual purpose of creating an airy feel while keeping out mosquitos.

A 10,700-square-foot, six-bedroom former residence with its own outdoor pool, butler, chef, and a spectacular beachfront location.

This doyenne of Cancún luxury resorts is best known for the view it commands from every room: a 270-degree sweep of bay where the roiling Caribbean meets the placid Bahía de Mujeres.

This all-inclusive resort was created for couples only, and it quickly became a top choice for newlyweds visiting Cancun. With the Honeymoon Package, couples can enjoy a personal cake, bottle of champagne, and dinner for two as part of their Sun Palace experience.

The adults-only Live Aqua beach resort is known for sleek, contemporary design and luxury amenities like an array of gourmet, on-site dining options.

Like a Mediterranean mansion, this small, 39-room boutique hotel is a refined retreat amidst the energetic Cancun Hotel Zone.

The Omni Cancun offers all the expected amenities of a five-star hotel, but it’s the pool and Jacuzzi areas that make this all-inclusive resort truly special: zero-entry pools, a swim-up bar, an adults-only Jacuzzi beach bar, and jaw-dropping ocean views.

Situated in the secluded Playa Mujeres area, this small and luxurious boutique-style hotel allows you to escape and indulge with your significant other. The all-inclusive plan includes tropical drinks and innovative gourmet cuisine (Veracruz-style muscles; scallops over zucchini ragout).

Affordable accommodations in an incredible location draw Spring Breakers to this inexpensive hotel in the heart of all the action, right by Party Center.
