Esencia

Esencia Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The former estate of an Italian duchess, the ultra-luxurious Esencia oozes Mediterranean elegance and style. With just 29 rooms spread over 50 acres, the property feels intimate and exclusive, and shows a thorough attention to detail in everything from the services to the decor. Upscale, contemporary rooms are housed in two-story buildings set amid lush tropical grounds, and feature lots of high-end amenities, including pre-loaded iPods, Molton Brown toiletries, and in some, even private plunge pools. The gorgeous spa, excellent restaurant, and relaxing pools with ocean views are highlights.
El Dorado Maroma

El Dorado Maroma Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The adults-only El Dorado Maroma resort is more intimate than its much larger sister property down the beach, the El Dorado Royale. With only 72 suites ranging in size and grandeur -- most have private infinity or swim-up pools and outdoor showers -- the Maroma is an ideal spot for those seeking a quiet, romantic holiday (though wedding parties can liven things up). The most stand-out aspect of the location is having next-door access to Marina Maroma Paradise -- a company that provides day-excursions such as sport fishing, diving, kayaking, sailing, and wave-runner rentals. For less adventurous folk, the long sandy beach is great for hand-in-hand strolls (though the waters are a bit rocky for swimming). The resort calls itself a "gourmet" all-inclusive, and offers three a la carte restaurants, bars, and nightly entertainment. All room types feature balconies or terraces, flat-screen TVs, CD/DVD players, bathrobes, and stocked minibars. For rainy days, there is a spa, fitness center, and business center on-site, but Wi-Fi is not included.
Viceroy Riviera Maya

Viceroy Riviera Maya Rating: 4.5 Pearls

With just 41 private villas, the Viceroy Riviera Maya attracts couples looking for a quiet, romantic retreat. The rustic-luxe villas -- with thatched roofs, partially canopied beds, and updated amenities such as large flat-screen TVs -- all have their own plunge pools, outdoor showers, and hammocks. They also all have bug spray. The Viceroy is all about relaxation; the restaurants are casual but upscale, the spa features outdoor treatment rooms and a steam room, and the serene pool overlooks the ocean and the seven-mile stretch of white-sand beach. Though families do come, the resort provides very few family-friendly amenities (there is no kids' club) so families may consider the still peaceful but family-friendly Rosewood Mayakoba, just a few minutes away.
Maroma Resort and Spa by Orient-Express

Maroma Resort and Spa by Orient-Express Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This upscale 65-room boutique between Playa del Carmen and Puerto Morelos has a beautiful setting on a white-sand beach, amid a jungle preserve. Contemporary rooms are equipped with original artwork, furniture from the hotel’s own workshops, king beds and either a terrace or a balcony. The great amenities on offer, including three pools, upscale dining, a wonderful spa, and a gorgeous beach, make this a solid pick, but prices are quite steep; other luxury resorts in the area may offer better value.
Maya Villa Condo Hotel & Beach Club

Maya Villa Condo Hotel & Beach Club Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Maya Villa Condo Hotel & Beach Club is an excellent option for vacationers who want an upscale condo near the beach and bustling 5th Avenue. The heated (but tiny) swimming pool is located by the rooms, but the restaurant, fancy beach club, and sprawling fitness center are a block away. Condos are spacious and prettily decorated, especially for this price point: Full kitchens have stainless steel appliances, bathrooms include marble, and some units have rooftop terraces with ocean views and private hot tubs.
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.
