Royal Hidaway Playacar

This award-winning resort strikes the right balance between intimate and sprawling, with thirteen acres of landscaped gardens and multi-level villas abutting a white-sand beach. The Spanish colonial design (think Carrera marble and lattice-wood headboards) and adults-only policy provide the perfect backdrop for a sophisticated, blissed-out stay, while its six restaurants offer a variety of top-notch cuisines from light bites you can enjoy on the pool deck to house-made pastas by a master chef from Rome. For the ultimate indulgence, book a private villa, which comes with a personal concierge who will attend to your every need, be it making restaurant reservations or arranging scuba excursions.

Grand Velas Riviera Maya

This five-star resort is a luxurious take on the family-friendly experience. Groups love the ultra-spacious rooms and suites—some come with Jacuzzis on the terrace as an added bonus—while the six à la carte restaurants serving mouthwatering cuisine (from Mexican specialties at Frida to sophisticated French fare at Piaf) are sure to please even the pickiest palate. Staff are more than happy to arrange scuba lessons or excursions to surrounding cenotes—though it might be just as tempting to stay behind and splash in the pool or hit up the award-winning 89,000-square-foot spa (one of the country's largest), which goes above and beyond the usual treatments with hydrotherapy, reflexology, and Ayurveda.

Thompson Playa del Carmen

Thompson Hotels’ first Caribbean property brings downtown style to Playa del Carmen with its midcentury Mexican architecture, sleek furniture, and pops of color. In addition to three meals per day, the all-inclusive package includes unlimited cocktails, wine, and beer at the hotel's three restaurants including the trendy rooftop terrace Catch (an outpost of NYC's popular Meatpacking District restaurant). Down one too many margaritas? Recover the next day with a facial at the spa, a yoga class on the 30,000-square-foot rooftop, or simply chill out at the infinity pool, where you can soak up the sun with stunning views of the Caribbean.

Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Perla

You could stay for a week at this adults-only resort and merely scratch the surface of all there is to do on the property. Guests have their pick of 14 restaurants, 11 bars, four outdoor swimming pools, a health club, outdoor tennis court, and a wide range of activities, which run the gamut from tequila tastings to tango lessons. What really sets this Paradisus apart, however, is the staff, who go above and beyond to make you feel pampered.

El Dorado Casitas Royale

With a stay in one of El Dorado’s casitas, you get access to the amenities at El Dorado Royale plus the added benefit of a more intimate, adults-only setting. Wood-beamed ceilings, outdoor showers, and hot tubs lend guest rooms a luxe tropical vibe, while some casitas even have private infinity pools and spacious balconies. After relaxing with a Swedish massage or trying the Mayan temazcal (a traditional sweat lodge) at the spa, the only decision you'll have to make is which of the 14 onsite restaurants and 10 swim-up bars to try first.
