Beloved Playa Mujeres

Playa Mujeres Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico

This 109-room sleek, sexy boutique hotel is a luxurious, adult-only all-inclusive located in the Playa Mujeres region just north of Cancun. It’s on a beautiful long white-sand beach -- which can have some seaweed from time to time -- and has three chic outdoor pools with food and drink service. Rooms are huge (starting at 960 square feet), all-white, and have big whirlpool tubs, as well as private balconies -- many with ocean views and some with plunge pools. The 35,000-square-foot spa is gorgeous, with an impressive hydrotherapy circuit, and the fitness center is extensive. Food at the four restaurants is excellent and a la carte, and reservations are not required; 24-hour room service is also available. Among the area's top all-inclusive resorts, the Beloved stands out as the only true boutique; Excellence Playa Mujeres right next door has a similar level of luxury, but it’s a much larger resort.


Excellence Playa Mujeres

Playa Mujeres Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico

This 450-room luxury all-inclusive is set in the heart of a private resort community to the north of Cancun. Modern, luxurious rooms are huge and have big whirlpool tubs; all have balconies and some have ocean views. Certain categories have swim-up access or private plunge pools. All the features expected for this caliber of resort are here, including seven pools, nine restaurants, 11 bars, and a high-end spa. The secluded location is part of the appeal for many, but may be too isolated for some -- and the white-sand beach, while tranquil, isn't as impressive as those in the Hotel Zone. This is one of the top luxury options in the Cancun area, and is for adults only; families may want to consider the neighboring and similarly luxurious Finest Playa Mujeres. 


Finest Playa Mujeres

Playa Mujeres Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico

The luxury, beachfront Finest Playa Mujeres opened in 2015 with a bright, modern look that’s somewhat of a deviation from the ocean-themed styles usually found in the Cancun area. In addition to trendy decor, the 450 rooms have free minibars, flat-screen TVs, espresso makers, and balconies or terraces -- some with ocean views and others with direct pool access. Excellent features here include a chic spa, modern gym, 10 pools, kids’ perks, outdoor activities, and entertainment. The food quality in the 12 all-inclusive restaurants is reportedly quite low and it’s often crowded in the main areas, especially with families and children -- but rates include premium liquor and lobster. For an adult-only experience, travelers might want to consider Le Blanc Spa Resort in the Hotel Zone of Cancun, which offers a better dining experience and quiet ambience.


Villa del Palmar Cancun Luxury Beach Resort & Spa

Playa Mujeres Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico

The Villa Del Palmar is one of the area's best upscale spots for a family-friendly, all-inclusive getaway. It’s in a private resort community to the north of Cancun on a pretty white-sand beach -- although seaweed can be a problem. There are tons of features, including six restaurants, five pools, and a kids' club with its own splash pool. The 415 spacious, homey suites all have kitchenettes or kitchens, plus balconies, many with ocean views. There are a dizzying array of daily activities to partake in (face-painting or tequila tasting anyone?), and some adult-only areas set aside for relaxation. Those who would prefer a family-friendly all-inclusive in the Hotel Zone may want to compare rates with the Paradisus Cancun. Moon Palace is a pricier but even more features-packed option with a surf simulator and larger pool complex. 


Secrets Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort

Playa Mujeres Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Secrets Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort is a luxury all-inclusive chain property located on the beach in a private resort community about 30 minutes from downtown Cancun. This adult-only resort offers airy interiors and pristine grounds, including an 18-hole golf course. The 424 suites all have private balconies or patios, free minibars, and soaking tubs, as well as direct swim-out access in some units. Two outdoor pools are lined with sunbeds and cabanas, and guests have access to many activities and water sports (fees for some), a plush spa, and a spacious fitness center. There are nine restaurants ranging from traditional Mexican to an international buffet, as well as five bars, including swim-up and beachfront options. Large groups can sometimes overwhelm the facilities. Families could try Finest Playa Mujeres, which has a kids' club and is similarly priced.  


Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort

Playa Mujeres Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico

The 502-room, upscale Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort is a family-friendly all-inclusive located along a white-sand beach in the exclusive gated community of Playa Mujeres. It's a 30-minute drive from downtown Cancun and Hotel Zone, and although the beach isn't quite as nice as those found in the Hotel Zone, it's pleasant. Ample features include multiple pools -- two infinity pools, six whirlpools, and a water park -- an elegant spa, modern gym, live performances and daily activities, and a golf course. Rooms are contemporary, spacious, and beachy, outfitted with sitting areas, flat-screen TVs, rainfall showers, and whirlpools -- many of the terraces. Some are swim-out or have private pools. All-inclusive rates cover 10 dining and drinking options with French, Japanese, and Mexican fare and top-shelf liquor. Unfortunately, food receives mixed reviews. For a better beach, consider Dreams Sands Cancun.
