Cancun is the world capital for luxury beach resorts.

Famous for its glitzy, glamorous Hotel Zone, straddling a narrow peninsula lined with all of the most popular, higher-end hospitality brands and surrounded by the bright-blue waters of the Caribbean, it is set to become even more popular this winter.

Whether you're a frequent visitor to the city or a newcomer, and you're in desperate need of a relaxing vacation and getting pampered, you may be wondering which resort's best when there are several to pick from.

In anticipation of the high season, we have narrowed down the top 5 all-inclusive offers for the upcoming winter based on our extensive knowledge of Cancun listings and having been a guest at several of the resorts ourselves:

ATELIER Playa Mujeres

One of our top winter picks year after year, ATELIER Playa Mujeres continues to be our safest bet for a stress-free, adults-only environment.

Located in Costa Mujeres, away from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Cancun, it is a tranquility oasis combining both wood and marble elements for a rustic ambiance.

The wheelchair-accessible resort is also equipped with a 1,360 m2 pool, with an automated heating system, a NUUP Spa highly sought-after among guests for its award-winning holistic treatments, and high-speed Wi-Fi in both rooms and public areas.

Other than the tropical vibe, gastronomy plays a huge part in what makes an all-inclusive resort great, as there's no point in going all-inclusive if you're not eating lavishly.

With as many as 13 restaurants, 2 coffee shops, and an additional 12 bars, where traditional Mayan cuisine is presented with a more modern twist, a distinctive feature that awarded it an AAA Diamond Designation, it is every foodie's paradise.

There are 593 suites in availability, with varying degrees of luxury and exclusivity, with prices for a one-week stay at the entry-level Junior Suit starting at a reasonable $4,927 this winter, and going as high as $8,770 for an INSPIRA Junior Suite with a swim-out private pool.

Hyatt Zilara Cancun

Yet another adults-only haven, the landmark Hyatt Zilara has consistently ranked among the most-booked properties in Cancun due to its unmatched, world-class amenities found amid an ‘intimate setting', in the heart of the Mexican Caribbean.

While Cancun proper is as chaotic as any big city can be, the Hyatt occupies a large portion of the longest beach stretch in the Hotel Zone, far from all the crazy traffic and noise pollution. In a way, it is perfect for couples on a romantic getaway.

The Zilara beachfront offers cabanas and an infinity pool with a swim-up bar, a 50-meter lap pool, a modern gym so you don't have to skip exercising while gorging on some delicious Mexican food, and even a ‘Romance Concierge', ready to assist honeymooners in making their once-in-a-lifetime trip more memorable.

The sumptuous buffet breakfast is another highlight, as are the on-site restaurants, where Italian and Asian cuisine are served (with gluten-free options available).

Booking for a 7-day stay this winter, a Junior King Suite with an ocean view will cost you roughly $4,743.

Hyatt Ziva Cancun

If adults-only sounds restrictive to you and the family, yet you want to enjoy the same high standards and comfort found across the Hyatt chain, perhaps the Hyatt Ziva could be a match.

A family-friendly resort that still reserves exclusive areas for adults only if you're ever in need of some time away from the children, and boasts three infinity pools and a beachfront tower with a breathtaking panorama of the Caribbean Sea, it is guaranteed fun for all guests regardless of age.

@charmedcompass Best family friendly all inclusive resort in Cancun. Look no further than Hyatt Ziva Cancun. This resort has something for everyone. It never disappoints! #bestallinclusiveresort #bestresortinmexico #bestresortsincancun #familyfriendlyresort #allinclusiveresort #allinclusivehotel #cancunresorts #familyvacation ♬ original sound – Carita 🏝️TikTok Travel Agent

While kids can fill their afternoons with action-packed activities, such as practicing supervised non-motorized water sports, going aqua cycling and playing water volleyball, or even socializing with peers at the KidZ or Teens Club, adults can enjoy endless drinks and rejuvenating treatments at the spa.

During peak travel dates in January, prices for a King Room with sofa bed and oceanview for one person start at $5,161.

Not only is it extremely luxurious, but the Hyatt Ziva is conveniently located 3.4 km from La Isla Shopping Mall and 17 km from the ever-busier Cancun International Airport.

Riu Palace Las Americas

An icon of the Cancun skyline since its inauguration in 2004, the Riu Palace has a unique Moorish – a North African architectural style – and Classicist exterior, and it's one of the most traditional properties in the city's portfolio.

With eight floors and 372 rooms, this striking white tower directly faces the Caribbean waters of Cancun, and every corner of the expansive resort just screams ‘chic', with the elegant, upgraded suites in particular standing out, with their pull-out sofas and hot tubs perched on balconies.

When it comes to dining and entertainment options, there are 6 restaurants on-site, 5 bars, and even a nightclub, not to mention 2 large pools, a public hot tub for guests staying in Junior Suites, a kids' pool, and a wellness center comprising of a gym and spa.

If you're hoping to add a few extra cultural activities to your Cancun séjour, you will be thrilled to learn the Interactive Aquarium Cancun, one of the largest in Latin America, is only 4 km from the property, while the Museo Maya de Cancun, where Mayan artifacts are on display, is 8 km.

You may contact your hotel concierge to inquire about organized visits to both. Staying for a week at the Riu, you should budget a minimum of $4,267.

Le Blanc Spa Cancun

A permanent feature on TripAdvisor's Best of the Best, Le Blanc Spa is deemed the ‘apex of sophistication', as well as one of the most luxurious all-inclusive, adults-only experiences not only in Cancun but all of the wider Mexican Caribbean.

With festive savings of up to 30% this Christmas period, it is one of your best bets at experiencing the world-class hospitality of the Mexican Caribbean, with its fine dining, impressive butler service, and bottomless buffets without going in the red.

LeBlanc is particularly popular for its wellness-centered approach. While other resorts in the Cancun area focus excessively on entertainment, this listing has invested heavily instead in relaxation, state-of-the-art spa treatments, and instating a more tranquil atmosphere.

The Mexican Caribbean is a bustling resort zone famous for its jungle raves and unruly bachelorette parties and stag dos, but stepping into LeBlanc, all of the noise and racket of the outside world is immediately muffled.

A one-week stay for 2 adults in a ‘Royal Deluxe Partial Ocean View' will set them back by US$5,739, or US$2,869.50 each.
