Cancun is the epitome of a tropical getaway. It's easy to get to from the U.S (hello, charter flights! ), it boasts endless sunny beaches, and its all-inclusive resorts offer unrivaled hospitality. With traveler demand for Cancun staying steady into 2022, here are six wonderful resorts that travel advisors recommend for getaways this year.
Dreams Aventuras Riviera Maya
Dreams Aventuras Riviera Maya, located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum in the charming marina village of Puerto Aventuras, pampers guests with stunning views (including views of the sparkling marina), luxury amenities the AMR Collection is known for and Dolphin Dreams, an on-site dolphinarium. This 305-room family-friendly resort features an adult-only enclave, as well as a natural saltwater pool right on the beach and an on-site PADI Gold Palm Diving Center. This resort's extensive list of amenities and activities has made it extremely popular among travel advisors and their clients.
Riu Palace Costa Mujeres
Costa Mujeres, a private seaside enclave less than 20 miles from Cancun International Airport, is heaven within reach. Riu Palace Costa Mujeres takes full advantage of the area's stunning view of the bay and its privileged location on the Bahía de Mujeres beach. Families (with the Riu Land Kids' Club) and adults-only guests are also welcome at the 600-room resort (with swim-up bars and enticing cuisine).Time is well spent off the resort too, with nearby experiences like the Isla Mujeres sea turtle conservation center, the Kukulkán pyramids at Chichen Itzá and the archaeological ruins in El Rey.
Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya
Designed in the style of a classic Mexican hacienda (a beautiful estate), this award-winning adults-only resort is magnificent, with lush gardens, comfortable rooms, and wonderful views in every direction. The resort is environmentally conscious and prides itself on preserving natural resources. Travel advisors love this 540-suite resort for their clients because of its amazing swimming pool, half-mile-long secluded beach, extensive dining options (seven á la carte restaurants for dinner and 11 bars), and convenient location– it’s just 25 minutes from the Cancun International Airport.
Dreams Vista Cancun Golf & Spa Resort
Dreams Vista Cancun Golf & Resort Spa is a favorite among travel advisors that want to provide their clients with the most exclusive experience. Each of the 416 rooms in the gated community of Puerta del Mar has a spectacular view of either the vivid blue Caribbean Sea or nearby Isla Mujeres. The resort features 185 Family Connecting rooms for families who want more space but still want to stay together. A splash waterpark, two surf pools and kids’ clubs for little ones and teens ensure the young ones will have a blast. Adults will have direct access to Puerto Cancun's 18-hole golf course, a complimentary water shuttle to the Puerto Cancun Shopping Center, and a world-class spa.
El Dorado Royale, a Spa Resort by Karisma
El Dorado Royale is best described in two words: luxurious and romantic. Named one of Condé Nast Traveler´s Top 100 Hotels in the World, this adults-only resort is a travel advisor favorite. It's a beautiful choice for weddings, honeymoons, and spontaneous couples' getaways. The 478 rooms are divided into seven categories, but they all offer marble bathrooms and stunning views of either of the beachfront or of the property’s lush gardens. On-site dining options include Fuentes, a culinary theatre featuring an Iron Chef-level cooking show, which is one of the world's most avant-garde concepts in culinary entertainment. El Dorado Royale’s convenient location (25 minutes south of Cancun International Airport, 15 minutes north of Playa del Carmen and close to multiple golf courses) is just the icing on the cake.
Breathless Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa
The adults-only Breathless Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa is a popular choice among travel advisors searching for a cool, stylish resort for their clientele (singles, couples, and friends groups). Guests can choose between 362 stylish suites with views of tropical gardens, the resort's heated pools, or the beautiful Caribbean Sea from their private balcony or terrace. Nine restaurants and nine bars give guests culinary options ranging from traditional Mexican to gourmet French to tapas. And don’t forget a celebratory toast at Fizz Iced Champagne Bar.
