Rooms & Rates

Described by Lonely Planet as "the mother of all beach resorts," the Grand Velas Riviera Maya is a sprawling, gorgeous property set against pristine, sugary beach and surrounded by protected jungle and mangrove reserves. Though large in size, this secluded resort puts a special focus on zen, boasting "one of the best spas on the coast" (Lonely Planet).

Guestrooms are massive, minimum 1,100 square feet, complete with Jacuzzi tubs, private terraces and a wealth of local artwork adorning the walls. Though TripAdvisor reviewers give high praise for the rooms, the 75,000-square-foot spa and the luxurious pool complexes, the highest praise is reserved for the eight restaurants. Travel + Leisure recommends the osso buco at Frida.

For guests looking to pair pampering with activities, there are a wealth of watersports available at the beach, and a short distance away guests can hit a few balls at the El Camaleon Golf Club or explore the Tres Rios Ecopark.
