Grand Riviera Princess All Suites Resort & Spa

Grand Riviera Princess All Suites Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 672-room Grand Riviera Princess All Suites Resort and Spa is a hacienda-like big resort outside of Playa del Carmen. There are a plethora of options: nine bars, seven restaurants, 12 pools, and a variety of sports on-site (tennis, scuba lessons, a fitness center, and more). The resort is meticulously manicured and laid out around a network of pools and outdoor lounge areas. Multiple guests have noted that upgrading to platinum status can significantly cut check-in time and provide access to more desirable rooms. Rooms are contemporary and chic with modern bathrooms; some rooms are swim-out. There is a spa with indoor pool and big fitness center, but there's a fee for internet and the buffet restaurants receive mixed reviews.
Viva Wyndham Azteca

Viva Wyndham Azteca Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Viva Wyndham Azteca is an upper-middle-range, all-inclusive option for families and couples who want an easy beach vacation in Playa del Carmen. Daily rates are generally low, but guests are nickel-and-dimed for Wi-Fi and premium alcohol. Plus, there are restrictions on how many times guests can visit the non-buffet restaurants here and at the sister property. The outdoor pool is shallow and often overrun with kids. A metal gate in the water sectioning off the kids' area doesn't do much for the ambiance. One saving grace is the gorgeous white beach with sun loungers and umbrellas. VIP guests can get drink service on the sand. You may want to spend a little more money at BlueBay Grand Esmerelda for bigger pools and no restaurant limits.
El Cozumeleño Beach Resort

El Cozumeleño Beach Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

El Cozumeleño is a mid-range all-inclusive resort located directly on a long, narrow beach in northern Cozumel. Its 252 rooms are no-frills and some have dated technology, but all units are spacious (especially those in the original building) and have furnished balconies with ocean views. The pools are the highlight here (one has a popular swim-up bar), but golf is also draw due to the resort's location across the street from the island's only golf course (guests get discounted rates). Breakfast and lunch are pretty average, but dinner is tasty and the menu changes every few days. Overall, the hotel is a solid pick for families and value travelers.
La Tortuga Hotel & Spa

La Tortuga Hotel & Spa Rating: 3.0 Pearls

La Tortuga Hotel & Spa is an intimate boutique hotel best described as "barefoot chic." It's a good option for couples who want to watch their budget and be within fast walking distance of tourist-friendly 5th Avenue and the beach, but it's not the place for the typical Mexico vacation of all-inclusive packages on the beach. Older, but comfortable, rooms are centered around a gorgeous lagoon-style swimming pool landscaped with lush tropical plants, though the water isn't heated. The on-site restaurant and bar are solid choices, but there's plenty of options in the immediate neighborhood. Be warned that nearby Coco Bongo nightclub rages until the wee hours, so pack earplugs.
Hotel B Cozumel

Hotel B Cozumel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Hotel B has everything a hotel needs to draw a young, hip crowd: a lounge-y beach, spacious rooms with great amenities, a gorgeous infinity-edge pool, a hopping bar with great mojitos, and yoga classes several times a week. Everything here is trendy, but that doesn’t come at the cost of sustainability, social responsibility, or local culture -- the property is decorated top to bottom with traditional Mexican touches with a contemporary twist and crafts made by Mexican artisans. Add this to great rates and a fabulous restaurant, and you’ve got a resort that's a very attractive alternative to the dozens of all-inclusive properties lining this part of the island.
Reef Playacar

Reef Playacar Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Reef Playacar is a beachfront, all-inclusive resort in Playa del Carmen. It's got a lot of the same bells and whistles as its competitors: two outdoor swimming pools, several bars and restaurants, jungle-like grounds, a small spa with a gym, and organized entertainment, along with some of the same complaints found elsewhere: charges for Wi-Fi, aggressive time-sales pitches, and crowded pools. Air-conditioned rooms are comfortable enough with private balconies, coffeemakers, and stocked minibars -- though some guests have complained about everything from noise to stained sheets. Overall, this is a decent choice with some of the same frustrations usually found in this price category. It may be worth paying more to stay at The Royal Haciendas, where Wi-Fi is included and the rooms are nicer.
Allegro Cozumel

Allegro Cozumel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 261-room Allegro Cozumel is an affordable, mid-range, all-inclusive hotel at the southern end of Cozumel. With a prime location on Palancar Reef, it is a beloved spot for divers. There are a long, sandy beach, water park, and kids' play area in addition to tennis courts, basketball courts, and a full fitness center. Four restaurants and five bars provide food and drink variety and there are four pools on-site. Fun extras include a full-service spa, deep-sea fishing, and of course, diving excursions. The rooms are simple and clean, but a tad dated -- some have tube TVs and most have very firm beds. There is a pesky fee for Wi-Fi.
Allegro Playacar

Allegro Playacar Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 286-room Allegro Playacar is a mid-range all-inclusive hotel well-suited to those looking for a beachfront option on a budget. Situated on a gorgeous white-sand beach, this hotel has two large pools -- one a bit more lively and the other a designated quiet pool -- plus a disco, kids' club, tennis courts, a basketball court, ping-pong, shuffleboard, and beach volleyball. There are four restaurants and four bars, including a swim-up bar. Suites are small and basic, but do have stocked minibars, air-conditioning, and cable TV channels (though TVs are tube-style). There is Wi-Fi but it is not included; spa services are also available for an additional fee.
Iberostar Paraiso del Mar

Iberostar Paraiso del Mar Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 388-room Iberostar Paraiso del Mar is a family-friendly, mid-range, all-inclusive resort located on the Riviera Maya between Playa del Carmen and Puerta Morelos. Set on a private, white-sand beach, the Paraiso del Mar offers a range of water sports that include snorkeling and scuba, and has a huge lagoon-style pool that is one of the largest in the region. The Paraiso del Mar is part of a five-hotel Iberostar resort complex -- guests can use facilities at all resorts -- and shares most of its facilities with the neighboring Iberostar Paraiso Beach. Rooms are spacious and clean, if a bit dated, with private balconies, separate seating areas, and video game consoles. The resort especially caters to families, with its kids' club, kids' pool, and dedicated pool and beach activities.
