Royal Hideaway Playacar is an adult-only AAA 4-Diamond beach resort, set on a quieter stretch of the Riviera Maya coastline. Popular Playa del Carmen is a short drive away, and it's 45 minutes from Cancun. On-site, there are activities, restaurants and pools galore -- Condé Nast Traveler is especially impressed, noting that "too much of a good thing - as Mae West maintained - can be wonderful."

Guests can try their hand at any number of sporting activities, including kayaking, windsurfing and water aerobics, or relax by one of the six pools (two with sea views) or on the palm-fringed beach.

For meals, there are six restaurants to choose from, ranging from the romantic Palazzo Italian restaurant; Spices, which serves Mexican and Caribbean food; and Club Royale, which holds weekly dinner shows. Most restaurants have a formal dress code and require reservations. It is recommended that you make reservations one week before arrival to secure the best seating times. There’s also a spa, complete with steam room, sauna and gym.

The rooms are spacious and open onto terraces overlooking the gardens or ocean. All are decorated in Spanish style, with dark-wood furniture and marble floors. A coffee maker and a mini fridge are provided and guests are greeted with a fresh fruit basket in their rooms on arrival. The Duplex Suites are spread over two floors with ample living space and a king-size bed.
