Last Updated

The Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards have confirmed that almost three-quarters of the ‘2021 Top 25 Mexico All-Inclusive Resorts’ are located in the beautiful Mexican Caribbean. The Travelers’ Choice list is created based on feedback and ratings from guests who have stayed in them – and really, what better recommendation can you get?

Here are the 18 Cancun area resorts listed in the ‘best of the best’ list.

●     Excellence Playa Mujeres – #1

The top-ranked All-Inclusive in Mexico is the Excellence Playa Mujeres. One of a handful of resorts in the Playa Mujeres area just north of Cancun, this hotel offers fantastic service and luxury rooms, many of which have rooftop plunge pools. With innovative restaurants, a great location, and all the amenities you could possibly want, it’s no surprise this resort is right at the top of the chart.

●     Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun – #2

Another ultra-luxe Cancun-based resort, Le Blanc is the perfect option for visitors who want a gourmet dining experience on vacation. It’s also a wellness haven, where you can’t help but relax. Set on a picture-perfect beachfront, you could be miles from anywhere, but in reality, you’re only steps away from Cancun’s legendary nightlife.

●     Akumal Bay Beach & Wellness Resort – #6

Akumal is a snorkeler’s paradise that’s well-known for its turtle population. The Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort is located in a prime spot between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Set across four buildings, the resort is oceanfront – naturally – and enjoys one of the best beaches in Quintana Roo. Guests have easy access to diving on the area’s coral reef and can also choose from an extensive program of wellness activities, including yoga and meditation.

●     Grand Velas Riviera Maya – #7

With a great location, only minutes away from popular Playa del Carmen, the Grand Velas Riviera Maya is equally appealing for families, couples, and groups. Split into three areas – Zen Grand for nature lovers, Ambassador for families, and Grand Class for absolute relaxation – this 8-restaurant 5-bar resort is certainly worthy of its spot in the top 25.

●     Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun – #8

Maroma Beach, where you’ll find this Secrets resort, has been voted the World’s Best Beach by Travel Channel four times. That should give you a hint of the main attraction at the Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun resort that’s secluded but within easy access of Playa del Carmen. Warm wood-themed rooms with bright splashes of color will make you feel relaxed and pampered, and the treats keep coming with the multiple gourmet dining options, luxury spa, and extensive entertainment program.

●     El Dorado Maroma – #9

Another hotel located on beautiful Maroma beach is the lovely 5-star El Dorado Maroma. Offering foodies the Gourmet Inclusive experience, this resort encourages guests to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing escape in their wonderfully-provisioned hotel.

The rooms are tropical and bright, with some having their own infinity pool. There’s the sensual Náay Spa, designed to revive, a charming pool area, and a great selection of activities and excursions to choose from.

●     Isla Mujeres Palace – #10

The couples-only Isla Mujeres Palace is located on the beautiful island of Isla Mujeres. It’s smaller than many of the other hotels on the list, with only 62 rooms, but this gives the resort a feeling of intimacy that is priceless.

Located in the mid-section of Isla Mujeres, with easy access to all the activities the island has to offer, you’ll be wowed by the dining options, the stunning rooms – all of which have a whirlpool tub – and the breathtaking views across the brighter-than-bright blue ocean.
