Opened in March 2017, the UNICO 20˚87˚ Hotel Riviera Maya is an all-inclusive resort catering to the needs of adult guests and curating personalized itineraries beyond the typical packaged vacation experience. Visitors are paired with butlers to book Mayan cooking lessons, tours of Tulum’s ancient ruins, canoe trips to the nearby cenotes or zip-lining excursions through Cancun’s jungles.

All rooms are decorated with works from local artists, are furnished with regional woods and have private patios with plunge pools or furnished balconies with spa tubs. Standard accommodations face the pool and gardens, while upgraded rooms have partial or full ocean views. Families and groups traveling together can spread out comfortably in villas with living rooms, kitchens, dining tables, sweeping terraces and additional bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate up to six adults.

All-inclusive rates include unlimited meals and drinks at the property’s five restaurants and six bars. Cueva Siete is run by Chef Christian Bravo, once a competitor on Top Chef Mexico, who brings his experience cooking across Mexico and Spain to Riviera Maya. Guests can also dine on coastal Italian favorites at Mi Carisa or sample three different kinds of Japanese cuisine at Mura House. The beachfront buffet at Restaurant 20.87 is open for breakfast and dinner daily as well as brunch on the weekends.

Day and night, traditional cocktails with a Mayan twist are served at Bar Balam, or guests can sip frozen concoctions by the pool at Bar Unica. For a nightcap with a taste of nostalgia, the Palmera Lounge is decorated like a Prohibition-era Cuban speakeasy.

The resort helps guests stay on track of fitness goals at the gym offering personal training sessions and daily group classes with options like Pilates, cross-training and spinning. Active visitors can borrow tennis and basketball gear to play on the illuminated courts, and enjoy unlimited use of the catamarans, kayaks, pedal boats and stand-up paddleboards in the ocean.

To unwind after a tough workout, all guests are treated to complimentary spa treatments and can purchase additional services. The property features three pools with swim-up bars, and the staff delivers food and drinks to sunbathers on the beach.

    Go directly to the bars to order your drinks. The ones brought by the bartenders are inferior quality
