Extensive facilities and activities, adults-only exclusivity and plenty of included dining options.
Secrets Resorts & Spas has refined the art of seaside holidays on the Riviera Maya. This Playa Mujeres jewel sits on Mexico’s sun-drenched Caribbean coastline, 10 minutes from downtown Cancún. It has everything you need for a tropical getaway – and more. There’s a sprawling Secrets Spa by Pevonia®, with tranquil pools tucked away among fan-shaped palms, and an 18-hole Greg Norman-designed golf course, plus watersports, tequila tastings, cocktail making classes, yoga and tennis. A huge freeform pool, which is lined by sun loungers and features a swim-up bar, includes four whirlpool baths and an infinity pool looking out over the ocean.
It’s not all about beaches on this stretch of the Yucatan Peninsula though: an incredible mix of ancient Mayan and traditional Mexican culture is ripe for discovery. Explore the crumbling ruins of Chichén Itzá, take part in a complimentary Temazcal ceremony and swim in startlingly turquoise cenotes (underground swimming holes).
You have 15 food and drink spots at the hotel to work your way through – everything from classic à la carte Mexican to Pan-Asian delicacies and French cuisine. And the best thing is that there are no reservations required and it’s all included as part of the Unlimited Luxury® all-inclusive package. One of the best bars is Desires, a lofty rooftop haunt with low-slung sofas and live music, while the toes-in-the-sand Barracuda has rustic swings to perch on, cocktail in hand. If you somehow manage to tick these all off your list, there are another 10 restaurants and 13 bars at the neighbouring Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort, a family friendly spot that you can enjoy free-flow access to.
In the gated community of Playa Mujeres, 10 minutes from downtown Cancun
