A very tranquil, couples-only, all-inclusive resort away from the bustle of Cancun’s Hotel Zone, the luxurious Beloved Playa Mujeres caters well to couples and honeymooners with a boutique vibe and one of the best spas in Mexico. While quiet, the beach here isn’t quite as large or generally strong as those in the Hotel Zone. Despite this, the property still very nearly attains a perfect Aaa Overall Beach Resort Rating; it offers outstanding restaurants (especially for an all-inclusive, despite somewhat limited variety), three trendy swimming pools surrounded by palapas and upscale furniture, beach and pool wait service, a modern and well-maintained fitness center, and an exceptional 35,000-square-foot spa with great couples massages and a hydrotherapy circuit. The overall service is impeccable; with just 109 accommodations, there’s noticeable personalization and attention to detail. Suites come with an abundance of space, pillow menus, Bulgari bath amenities, twice-daily maid service, Nespresso coffee machines, and 24-hour room service; some have jacuzzis, swim-up access with private gardens, or expansive balconies with ocean views and private plunge pools. Activities include catamaran rides to Isla Mujeres, snorkeling and scuba diving excursions, private yachting and sailboat day trips from the marina next door, beach volleyball, jet boat jungle tours, and touring Mayan ruins nearby. Other activities include shared or private deep sea fishing charters (for barracuda, grouper, and snapper, among more), dinner or sunset sailboat or catamaran cruises, and shipwreck dives and shallow night dive tours. The Greg Norman-designed Playa Mujeres Golf Club next door is one of the top courses in Mexico.
