Cancun Top 5 All-Inclusive Adult Only Resorts

Cancun is one of the most beautiful and vibrant cities in Mexico and the world. Its superb Caribbean location makes it the perfect place for everything from ecotourism, snorkeling, horseback riding and fishing, to golf, scuba diving, surfing and sailing.

The weather is warm and pleasant year-round, moderated by the marine breeze which circulates through its avenues. For a hassle-free getaway, consider these adults-only all-inclusive stays, where the only thing you’ll have to worry about is whether to order a poolside margarita or cerveza.

1. Sun Palace Cancun

The Sun Palace Hotel in Cancun area is a couples-only luxury resort located approximately 20 km from downtown Cancun and 12 km from the Cancun airport. Because of its terraced, zigzag shape, every room features a private balcony overlooking either the ocean or the Nichupté lagoon—not to mention canopied king beds, double Jacuzzi tubs, and his-and-her sinks.

While more compact than other resorts in the area, Sun Palace compensates with a vast array of amenities including four restaurants, three bars, and 24-hour room service. (Did we mention guests receive hibiscus drinks on arrival?) Loungers and plush daybeds line the three infinity pools, which all face the ocean. For an even more relaxing retreat, head to the Awe Spa for hydrating body wraps, deep-tissue massages, and hydrotherapy plunge pools.

2. Hyatt Zilara Cancun

Situated on an idyllic beach in Zona Hotelera, the Mayan-inspired Hyatt Zilara Cancun is an adults-only, all-inclusive resort where swim-up suites lead to an infinity pool, a tequila sommelier teaches the art of sipping Mexico’s traditional spirit, and pool parties create energetic vibes. Inspired by local architecture and culture, it boasts magnificent suites, sumptuous dining and its signature Service From the Heart.

Each of Hyatt Zilara Cancún’s 307 rooms and suites is a study in restrained luxury: think dark, wooden headboards and wood-beamed ceilings, balconies featuring Corinthian columns and wrought-iron railings, and ocean views from oversized jetted tubs lined with polished stone. The two main pools—one with an Olympic-length lap lane, the other with a swim-up bar—both overlook the sea, as do several of the on-site restaurants, which specialize in everything from contemporary Asian fusion to gourmet Mexican cuisine.

Workout classes at the 24-hour fitness center, water sports at the beach, and nightly live entertainment are also included in your stay. While sessions at the 22,000-square-foot spa are one of the few exclusions, the treatments—many done in an outdoor gazebo—are worth the splurge.

3. Live Aqua Beach Resort Cancun

The Live Aqua Hotel in Cancun is an adult-only resort located on a gorgeous white-sand beach across the street from La Isla Shopping Centre and approximately 20 km from the Cancun airport.

A pleasing concoction of rosemary, eucalyptus, and peppermint oils permeates the grounds at Live Aqua Beach Resort Cancún, an ultra-contemporary all-inclusive in the Hotel Zone known for its in-room aromatherapy menus. Beyond their soothing smells, warm-hued rooms feature tiled floors, luxury bath products, and balconies that overlook the Caribbean or the resort’s lush gardens. There are several intimate outdoor restaurants—including a casual Italian spot and a lantern-lit steakhouse surrounded by mangroves—along with a massive infinity pool and smaller, interconnecting pools of varying depths that separate the gardens from the beachfront.

Should a tropical rainstorm temporarily force you indoors, cross the street to La Isla Shopping Village, Cancún’s mecca for high-end designer shopping with outposts of brands such as Massimo Dutti, Onda de Mar, and Kiehl’s.

4. Riu Palace Las Americas

For an impeccable getaway in Cancun’s Corazone resort area, discerning travellers stay at the adults-only Riu Palace Las Americas. The relaxing, sophisticated atmosphere exclusive to those aged 18 and over is perfect for celebrating a romantic occasion with a loved one or group vacations with friends. Take in spectacular views from the oceanfront pool complex with poolside and swim-up bars serving up your favourite tropical beverages.

The resort makes a grand first impression with its all-white turreted exterior and mosaic-tiled pools that bring ancient Roman baths to mind. The 372 suites, renovated in 2016, also take cues from the Old World with their doric columns, sculpted wooden headboards, and soft color palette—not to mention balconies often with direct views over the Caribbean.

At the small but well-equipped Renova Spa, popular treatments range from rejuvenating facials to body wraps using bergamot and mint oils. If you're more interesting in people-watching, most guests congregate at the swim-up bar in one of the two pools, where terraced sundecks lined with loungers lead to the sand. Thanks to the resort’s location at the sheltered northwestern bend of Punta Cancún, its beach is one of area's best spots for swimming.

5. Excellence Cancun Playa Mujeres

Nestled on the pristine coast of Cancun, Excellence Playa Mujeres is a luxurious paradise featuring a breathtaking white-sand beach and first-class amenities. This property offers gorgeous and sprawling accommodation options that include private terraces, two-person Jacuzzis with indoor and outdoor access, 24-hour room service and pillow menu to ensure ultimate relaxation.

There are plenty of gourmet dining options to choose from with no reservations required, including the poolside Lobster House which serves all-you-can-eat lobster and seafood. Newlyweds and couples will enjoy free honeymoon and anniversary packages for the ultimate romantic experience, with a special romantic dinner, champagne breakfast in bed and more. In the evening, unwind with nightly entertainment while sipping on your favourite cocktail made with premium liquor.
