Neal and I love Mexico. We took our first trip as a couple there, we honeymooned in Acapulco, and any chance we get to go back we are all over it. Last month we had the opportunity to experience luxury all-inclusive resorts all over Cancun with Air Transat. We loved getting a taste of each one and with that, have created the ultimate guide to help you book your next vacation! Scroll down to see which ones made our top picks and be sure to check out our travel vlog here to see more…
We flew Option Plus with Air Transat which included priority check-in, priority baggage handling, and priority boarding. Option Plus also includes inflight perks such as: a tapas box, bottle of champagne, one alcohol/non-alcohol beverage of choice, headphones and a blanket/neck pillow/eye mask kit to enjoy the flight!
F I N E S T P L A Y A M U J E R E S
Finest Playa Mujeres *TOP PICK*
Luxury Package from $2,859 CAD per person
We kicked off our trip at Finest and I have to say, I didn’t think it could be topped! The beach was gorgeous, food was delicious, and there were so many details we loved. The cutest cafe called “The Sweet Corner” and the late night food truck with mini sliders and fries were definitely highlights! We loved this place and it’s great for couples or families (there is an adult-only section if that is your preference) and if you’re a family you still get the luxury feel.
Perfect for: Families, Couples (adult-only section)
G R A N D V E L A S
Grand Velas Riviera Maya *TOP PICK*
Luxury package from $3,109 per person
This place was an absolute dream! We had a gorgeous room along the beach with an ocean view. We’d open our door and walk right onto the beach in just a few steps. For dinner, we enjoyed some fantastic french cuisine at Piaf (I highly recommend the french onion soup). Room service was equally amazing — available 24 hours a day! We loved every inch of this hotel and the hospitality was above and beyond.
Perfect for: Honeymooners, couples, families (they have a baby concierge that provides cribs, bottles, toys, etc. we were so impressed!)
A Z U L F I V E S
Package from $1,269
If you’re into doing a lot of excursions to Tulum or Playa Del Carmen, this would be a great central spot to stay. The taco stand by the beach is a really nice touch! Koh Thai was another one of our favourite restaurants — excellent Wok Cuisine. And if you’re an early riser, head to the beach and you’ll catch the sweetest sunrise.
Perfect for: Group travel, Explorers, Family
S E C R E T S
Package from $2,369 per person
We had an amazing wine tasting here (this would be a fun idea for a Bachelorette), followed by a yummy Mediterranean dinner. The beach was beautiful and we lounged on the hammocks after a dip.
Perfect for: Bachelor/Bachelorette parties, Couples
Z O E T R Y
Luxury package from $4,199 per person
We took a boat to get to the resort and were instantly impressed by the property. A smaller hotel, Zoetry is perfect for a mature crowd that is seeking wellness and relaxation.
Perfect for: Relaxation, Yoga, Couples
B R E A T H L E S S
Package from $1,269 per person
We stopped for lunch at Breathless and might I add, they had one of the most impressive and delicious buffets we’ve seen at an all-inclusive! This resort is well known for larger events and groups, so this would be a perfect Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. If you’re the partying type, you might enjoy the foam party at the pool. If you just wish to just relax and take a nap on one of the floating pool beds you can always relocate to the second or third pool on this resort.
Perfect for: Bachelor/Bachelorettes, Large Groups
E L D O R A D O M A R O M A
Package from $3, 079 per person
We were excited to check out this property as it has one of the first water bungalows in the Caribbean. If you’re not up for the long flight to the Maldives, check out this gorgeous, private section of the resort! It’s also worth mentioning, Conde Naste Travel named their beach one of the Top 10 in the world!
Perfect for: Honeymoon, Anniversary, Couples
