All-Inclusive Resort with Spacious Suites Steps from Private Beach

Halfway between Cancún and Playa del Carmen, a large private beach is tucked into the coastline of the Yucatán Peninsula. The beach belongs to Hotel Marina El Cid Spa and Beach Resort, whose sunshine-yellow stucco walls are only a few steps from the sand. Past an entrance flanked by palm trees, you’ll check in for a relaxing, all-inclusive vacation, during which all meals, snacks, and alcoholic drinks are covered—you don't have to worry about anything but enjoying the sparkling Riviera Maya.

The resort's primary attraction is the 22,000-square-foot pool, which is accessorized with water slides, rock formations, and separate play areas for kids. The poolside Hacienda Arrecife restaurant and swim-up bar serve fresh Mexican food and cocktails. Sun chairs, set in the shallows of the water and under palapa huts, are surrounded on all sides by palm trees and winding garden paths.

Later, head to one of four onsite restaurants for dinner. There's La Marina, where you can dine on fresh seafood while taking in views of yachts bobbing in their slips at the resort's marina; El Alcazar, which serves Asian Mediterranean fusion food in an intimate setting; and laid-back Alhambra, home to a wide-ranging buffet.

In airy junior suites, private balconies overlook the Caribbean Sea, the pool, or the lush hotel gardens. Inside, each suite features sleek yet comfortable furnishings and a spacious marble bathroom. The hotel has complimentary 24-hour room service, and stocks each room’s mini bar with beer, soda, and bottled water for no extra charge.

Puerto Morelos, Mexico: Reefs, Snorkeling, and Ancient Mayan Culture

The hotel is located less than a mile from the quaint fishing village of Puerto Morelos and about a 30-minute drive from both Playa del Carmen and Cancún. The resort overlooks the Puerto Morelos National Reef Park, one of the largest reefs in the Western Hemisphere. It's a popular snorkeling site thanks to its diverse underwater wildlife.

Nearby, stalactites and stalagmites jut from the ceiling and floor of Aktun-Chen, an underground cave where adventurers can snorkel through an ancient natural well. Eighty minutes from the resort, ancient Mayan culture is on display at the Tulum ruins, where crowds flock to see a well-preserved walled city overlooking the sea.

The pool has a fantastic setup. There is a shallow pool for children and a cliff for diving off. I love the raised platforms in the water with the lounge chairs. Also the beverage stations are very convenient. Kids club staff runs strong all day long.

The slide HURTS adults. Not just minor pain. I saw adults with swollen wrists from banging on the side of the slide. Also open sores from rubbing alongside. Also the pool floor/steps are quite slick so i would recommend water shoes.
