Set on a private, white-sand beach overlooking the Caribbean coastline, Hotel BlueBay Grand Esmeralda is an all-inclusive, kid-friendly resort that offers beach vacations at wallet-friendly prices.

The hotel is located in Mexico's Riviera Maya region, just 20-minutes by car from central Playa del Carmen’s lively bars and shops. Guests have complimentary, no-restrictions access to dine and drink at the hotel’s six a la carte restaurants and one buffet which offer a variety of cuisines from Mexican to steakhouse-style fare. The bars, outdoors games and evening entertainment are provided gratis as well.

Guest rooms are simple but spacious and feature a private balcony along with flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi for one device. Transport around the hotel’s expansive grounds is via golf cart, helping to keep guests cool, even if that means abandoning the dream of finally hitting 10,000 steps.

Outside of the rooms, guests can enjoy the beach beneath thatch umbrellas or float in one of the two ocean-facing outdoor pools. Parents can visit the 26,000-square-foot spa while the little ones (ages 2-12) enjoy supervised activities with other children at the kids club. Numerous activities are available for an additional charge, including: Jet Skiing, windsurfing, scuba diving, wine tasting, spa treatments and bike rentals.
