This all-suite resort has creative décor inspired by Mexican art and design, plus fantastic drinking and dining is on offer from a choice of 13 restaurants, 12 bars, and 2 coffee shops. Between them they offer an array of authentic Mexican and global cuisines, from fine dining by celebrity chef Edgar Núñez to lobster specialities. Suites also come with signature upscale minibars with top-shelf spirits and wines, plus gourmet snacks.

This is a lively, sociable resort for those who want it to be, with activities and entertainment ranging from thrilling shows to artistic workshops inspired by famed Mexican artists. There are also water sports including kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding. But there’s plenty of scope for an indulgent escape, too, including pampering sessions in the three-level spa with its hydrotherapy circuit.

There’s also a huge array of exciting excursions to tempt you in Playa Mujeres, Cancun, and the surrounding area as a whole. Among them are boat trips to the Isla Mujeres, world-class fly and spin tackle fishing at the Nichupte-Bojorquez lagoon, and kayaking, snorkelling, hiking, biking, and zip-lining at the Garrafon Natural Reef Park.
