Luis Fernando Dominguez Mora | April 26, 2018

You’ll find on this site other lists about the best adults-only and best family-friendly all inclusive resorts in the region. Here, it doesn’t matter if kids are welcome or not, we’ll focus on their overall service, facilities, dining and wellness options, and about how inclusive are their programs. So, this is our top-ten Riviera Maya all inclusive resorts.


Azul Beach Hotel

Why it made the list

Azul Beach has gone the extra mile to make this resort really attractive to the little ones, but that shouldn’t distract us from the overall quality of the service provided. A very solid all inclusive program that makes kids and adults feel at home, in a tropical but luxury atmosphere.

Zoëtry Paraíso de la Bonita

Why it made the list

This resort is a truly top-notch all inclusive resort so luxurious that it feels like an adults-only, but is actually family-friendly. Its Spa features the first certified Thalassotherapy Center in North America and is one of the best in the Riviera Maya. Dining options are not as diverse as in other hotels, but that’s because Zoetry prioritizes quality over quantity.

Valentin Imperial Maya

Why it made the list

An all around impressive adults-only resort located in one of the best beaches in the Riviera Maya. With 8 a la carte restaurants and 11 bars, guests are guaranteed to be well-served all day long. Restaurants don’t require reservations and bars serve top-shelf spirits, which is not the norm in the destination. Upgraded Privilege Package program offers an even more inclusive version of its all inclusive program.

Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya

Why it made the list

One more of the resorts with separate sections for family and adults. Being the Hard Rock, it was just normal that their Heaven adults-only section was going to stand out. But the Hacienda section for families includes kids’ club, teens’ lounge and other interesting perks like kids’ pool, climbing wall and their out-of-the-box Limitless Resort Credit program designed for longer stays.

Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancún

Why it made the list

A top-notch resort with 13 swimming pools, 8 a la carte restaurants and direct access to an 18-hole professional golf course is hard to leave out from this top-ten. So, it scores points for quantity, but it also stands out on the quality of its dining scene, and the Maroma beach is widely recognized as one of the best in the Riviera Maya.

Blue Diamond Riviera Maya

Why it made the list

This resort is so hard to define. It calls itself a luxury boutique hotel, but provides a top-notch all inclusive experience that we can’t just ignore. Enjoying the best of two worlds, the unparalleled attention to details unique to boutique hotels and the luxurious variety of amenities characteristic of big all inclusive resorts, Blue Diamond may have succeeded in creating a new category for high end hotels.

Paradisus Playa del Carmen

Why it made the list

Paradisus La Esmeralda made it to our family-friendly list and Paradisus La Perla to the adults-only list, so it was only logic to include it as one of the most complete all inclusive resorts in the Riviera Maya. The diversity of amenities for kids and adults that this resort offers to its guests is, if anything else, really hard to match.

Fairmont Mayakoba

Why it made the list

Usually, resorts of this category don’t get into the all inclusive tag. That’s why when Fairmont Mayakoba launched their Premium Appetite for Luxury program, we had to include it as one of the top all inclusive programs in the Riviera Maya. To be able to experience a resort of this level with an all-encompassing package like that, is the definition of ‘dreamed tropical vacations’.
