The Beloved Hotel Rating: 5.0 Pearls
The ultra-luxe Beloved, on a white-sand beach, features 109 suites with super sexy decor. They're all-white, with spacious, sleek marble bathrooms and Jacuzzi tubs, and have the vibe of a luxurious New York City hotel room -- except they're about four times the size and feature private balconies, many with ocean views. The 35,000-square-foot spa boasts 14 treatment rooms, a salon and an ice glacier room, as well as a fitness center, a yoga studio and a tennis court. The two pools with food and drink service are large and attractive, and have plush lounge chairs.
Excellence Playa Mujeres Rating: 5.0 Pearls
This adults-only luxury resort offers a nice all-inclusive experience with tons of variety -- multiple dining options, several beautiful pools, a gorgeous spa, and dozens of wonderful activities. The rooms here are large and contemporary, with large modern bathrooms, Jacuzzis, and high-end amenities such as big flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and iPod docks. Some have a large rooftop terrace with a private plunge pool with ocean views. The hotel is pretty quiet, since it's adults-only, so couples looking for a romantic getaway might prefer this over the Beloved.
Hotel Villa Rolandi Thalasso SPA - Gourmet & Beach Club Rating: 4.5 Pearls
The Hotel Villa Rolandi is a romantic, 35-room boutique that fully embraces the "less hectic than Cancun" vibe of Isla Mujeres. Two big draws are the secluded location on a pristine white-sand beach and the "no children under 13" policy. All rooms are spacious suites (the smallest starts at 498 square feet) that offer flat-screen TVs, large balconies with private Jacuzzis, and Italian marble floors. Great perks include a free continental breakfast delivered to rooms at no extra charge, and a 42-foot yacht that provides free transportation to and from Cancun.
The Royal in Cancun Rating: 4.5 Pearls
The appearance of the 288-room adults-only Royal in Cancun goes against the often bad reputation all-inclusives have gained. Suites are updated and buck traditional room layouts with a centrally located bed and spacious balcony (some are even swim-out). The bathrooms boast massive walk-in showers and Jacuzzi tubs with killer views. The quality of the food at the five restaurants is surprisingly good and varied, including the convenient 24-hour VIP lounge. There are tons of fun activities available (though they can get crowded fast), two on-site spas, butler service, and an attractive beachfront pool with cabana beds. The property’s location right on a pristine white-sand beach with turquoise waters is also a plus.
Le Blanc Spa Resort Rating: 4.5 Pearls
There is nothing ordinary about the 260-room Le Blanc Spa Resort: Everything from the wine lists to your workout has been tailored to be top notch. It feels more South Beach chic than Cancun party, with a hip, gorgeous aesthetic throughout the entire pristine white property. The rooms are thoroughly modern and bright with minimalist decor and stunning ocean views (some with large Jacuzzi baths). But most of your time should be spent experiencing the top-of-the line spa, the chic restaurants (especially the stunningly designed Lumiere), and heavenly white-sand beach.
