So, if you want a romantic trip with your sweetheart, a trip by yourself to reset, or a trip with your girlfriends, read on for the best adults-only all-inclusive beach resorts.
Heaven at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in Mexico
If you like resorts with lots of noise, activities, and a party atmosphere, then the name of this place should tell you everything you need to know. Heaven at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya is exactly that for vacationers who like loud music, a busy pool scene, and lots of strong cocktails.
This beach was built next to the Puerto Aventuras lagoon, which is a great place to snorkel and lay out in the sun.
This part of the Hard Rock Riviera Maya is only for adults and has four restaurants of its own (though guests have access to those at the main Hard Rock as well). There’s also a nightclub with DJs, a lot of bars, a great spa, and an overall fun atmosphere that’s hard to beat.
Le Sivory Punta Cana by PortBlue Boutique in Dominican Republic
The adults-only Le Sivory Punta Cana is a great place with a quiet, high-end vibe. It is also in a quiet spot right on the beach that is hard to beat. There are only 55 rooms here, and they all have terraces or patios. Many of the rooms have private pools, hot tubs, and views of the ocean.
Dine-in restaurants are very popular with past guests. You can choose from a variety of places to eat, from fine dining to casual outdoor dining with a view of the beach. The beach here is never busy or noisy, which is wonderful. There won’t be any crazy party nights, and the hotel has a beautiful pool, spa, and gym. The peace and quiet at Le Sivory Punta Cana stands out in a region that isn’t always known for it.
Excellence Playa Mujeres in Mexico
Excellence Playa Mujeres is north of Cancun in the upscale resort community of Playa Mujeres. Modern, luxurious rooms are big and have big whirlpool tubs. Some rooms have swim-up access or private plunge pools.
There are so many features that it’s hard to keep track of them all. There are 7 pools, 10 restaurants, 11 bars, and a high-end spa. Many people like the place because it’s out of the way, but keep in mind that you’re not here to party like a rock star. Instead, the atmosphere is a mix of just enough liveliness and calm, and the beach is beautiful.
Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun
The original Le Blanc Spa Resort is easily one of the most popular all-inclusive resorts in all of Cancun. It stands out for its beautiful white-sand beach and high-end services. It’s right in the middle of the Hotel Zone and has high-end amenities like a luxurious spa (guests get free access to the hydrotherapy area), beautiful pools with swim-up bars, and, most of all, service that makes you feel special.
Your clothes will be unpacked for you by butlers, and pool staff will bring you cool towels for your eyes so you can enjoy the sun. The white-on-white decor feels modern and fresh, and the modern, bright rooms have whirlpool tubs for two people. Most rooms have views of the ocean or lagoon. People who have been there before have given the food high marks.
Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun in Mexico
Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun is a romantic hotel for adults only that is set on a beautiful stretch of white sand beach and has many well-liked places to eat. And what goes better with eating as much as you want? No limits on the best cocktails. For this reason, there are no less than six bars and a great pool area on the property.
The rooms are big and nicely decorated. They have four-poster beds, separate sitting areas, and private balconies. Travelers who want direct access to the pool can choose a swim-up suite on the ground floor. Between trips to the beach and pool, the spa is a great place for a romantic break.
Haven Riviera Cancun in the south of Cancun
Haven Riviera Cancun is just south of Cancun. It is right on the beach and has all the perks of an all-inclusive hotel. It’s also just for adults and doesn’t have the wild party vibe of Cancun’s Hotel Zone (which is just up the coast).
All 333 rooms have private balconies or terraces with whirlpool tubs or swim-up pool access, and most have views of the ocean and/or main pool.
If you want something extra luxurious, check out the Serenity Club rooms, where you’ll have your own beach area and access to a private lounge.
Previous guests have said great things about the food and drinks. You can choose from Mediterranean, Asian fusion, and buffets.
This luxury resort Sandals Grenada Resort & Spa for couples only has 225 rooms and is spread out over 17 acres on the southwestern tip of Grenada. It’s definitely more romantic than party-like, with fire pits, gazebos, and swinging chairs on a pier that looks out over the water. All of these things make the property look and feel like Sandals.
Some of the rooms have private pools, soaking tubs, and butler service, and the elegant, modern decor is one of the main reasons why people come here. The white-sand beach is nice, but it’s not very big for how big the property is.
Warwick Paradise Island in the Bahamas
The Warwick Paradise Island is a high-end resort with 250 rooms and suites for adults only. It is near Nassau Harbor on Paradise Island, which is home to the Atlantis Resorts. The style is fresh and modern, which isn’t always the case on Paradise Island or at Bahamas all-inclusive resorts. All of them have good features, and many of them have balconies with views of the harbor.
Warwick Paradise Island has a white-sand beach with a small, fenced-in swimming area and free snorkeling gear. There is also a big lagoon-style pool with lots of lounge chairs.
The all-inclusive package covers tips and a wide range of a la carte and buffet restaurants that serve everything from pizza to pan-Asian food. There are also a lot of wellness options, like a gym, tennis, basketball, and the beautiful Amber Spa.
Sanctuary Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic
Sanctuary Cap Cana is always a popular choice for adults who want an all-inclusive vacation. This classic Punta Cana resort has pools with beautiful designs, a great spa, and some of our favorite places to eat in the area.
Most rooms have a view of the ocean, and all rooms have their own outdoor space. In the Castle section, there are suites that open up to a pool that looks like a moat, and the Terrace Tower Suites have hot tubs outside. The luxurious Honeymoon Suites have their own plunge pools, and the Castle Island Suites are on their own private islands that you can get to by a bridge.
Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita in Puerto Morelos
The suites’ different designs give guests different ways to spend their time. For example, Terrace Suites have small indoor gardens next to the bath, and Plunge Pool Suites have small outdoor pools. The pool area and beach have loungers that are great for couples, and the resort’s dining options add to the idea that it is a healthy place to stay.
You’ll get some pretty cool extras for free here, like a bottle of tequila, a bottle of champagne every day, a one-hour sunset sail on a Catamaran, maid service three times a day, and private airport transfers with a chauffeur for each room.
Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos in Mexico
The adults-only Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos feels like a separate world, just like its well-known sibling in Cancun. This high-end, all-inclusive hotel has everything you could want for a week of pampering.
All over the property, you can expect chic style, clean lines, and luxurious rooms. Rates include gourmet a la carte dining and high-end drinks, and past guests have given the food high marks.
The outdoor pool complex is one of the most beautiful in the area, and the spa lets you use hydrotherapy for free.
The beach and the view of the sea are beautiful. Just remember that the ocean here is dangerous and not good for swimming, even though the views are nice.
TRS Coral Hotel, Playa Mujeres in Mexico
When it comes to all-inclusive vacations, TRS resorts do it right. Again, like the best places on this list, the property has just the right amount of activity and gives you every chance to unwind and relax.
Like its sister hotel down the coast in Akumal, TRS Yucatan has a lot to do in and around the pool during the day. However, couples and groups of friends are just as likely to spend the day in the shade sipping margaritas and tropical drinks.
The resort has great food. It serves high-end dishes from Spain, the Mediterranean, and, of course, Mexico. The presentation is incredible, and the drinks are also creative (we recommend saving plenty of room for dessert at every meal). Prices also include a gourmet dinner with several courses and a great show with singing and dancing at Chic Cabaret. What’s the best? The beach is really beautiful.
Galley Bay Resort & Spa in Antigua
A big part of the appeal of this adults-only boutique resort is that it is quiet and peaceful, and you won’t find any kids under 16.
You shouldn’t also expect cutting-edge modern style, since this resort is for people who want to get away from it all and don’t need a lot of extras.
Sandals Royal Plantation in Jamaica
With only 74 rooms, the Sandals Royal Plantation is a very small all-inclusive resort. However, it has all the amenities of a much larger property, like a beautiful beach and an elegant spa.
All meals are served a la carte, which is a big deal because there is no mediocre buffet food here.
Some of the 74 rooms have beautiful views of the sea and are decorated in a classic colonial style. Some of the rooms have four-poster beds and private butler service.
The free shuttle to and from the airport is a nice surprise. Many people think of all-inclusive resorts as having a lot of loud people, but this one is quiet and peaceful.
Excellence Oyster Bay in Jamaica
Looking for sun, blue seas, white sand, and a lively atmosphere for adults only on your own private Jamaican peninsula? You might be a good fit for Excellence Oyster Bay. Here, there are large rooms and suites with private hot tubs or pools on the terraces. Almost all of them have a view of the sea. There are a lot of elegant and different ways to eat, like a big breakfast and lunch buffet and dinner a la carte options from Italy, Spain, and Asia.
The spa at the resort is one of the best in the area. It has a relaxing hydrotherapy circuit, and the white-sand beach goes all the way around the resort. The atmosphere is high-end without being snobbish, and the evening shows bring in a lot of resort guests.
The private peninsula location makes you feel like you’re miles away from the rest of Jamaica or anywhere else, which is what resort life is all about.
