When My Vacation Lady speak to our honeymoon clients during their initial honeymoon consultation, Cancun rarely comes up as a honeymoon destination. The Riviera Maya is well known for some great adult only honeymoon resorts but many of our honeymooners think of Cancun as a “spring break” destination. Well, Cancun has grown up! While we were on our vacation a few weeks ago, we visited many resorts in Cancun that would make most couples think twice about Cancun as a honeymoon destination.
Here are some of the resorts that we visited which are at the top of our list as great honeymoon resorts.
Excellence Playa Mujeres-
While outside of the hotel zone of Cancun, Excellence Playa Mujeres has a fantastic beach and great pools that are perfect for a romantic honeymoon. While away from the hustle and bustle of Cancun but still only 25 minutes from the airport, Excellence is the perfect resort for honeymooners that are looking for romance. The rooms all have jacuzzi tubs big enough for 2. There are rooms with direct access to the pools. The spa is fabulous and there are 10 different restaurants to choose from.
While the name may not sound familiar, the property has been one of Cancun’s top adult only all inclusive resorts for a long time. Formerly, The Royal Cancun, this luxury resort has 307 suites with in room jacuzzis for 2. With a beach that is to die for, the Hyatt Zilara has made My Vacation Lady’s list as another great honeymoon resort in Cancun!
WOW was the first word that comes to mind when we stepped into Le Blanc. The whitel lobby with the views right out to the ocean took our breath away. Only 260 rooms, ALL with butler service, this hotel felt cozy compare to some of the other hotels we visited. Five restaurants (including a brand new Nobu set to open later this month) set the stage for the fine dining that you’ll experience at Le Blanc. Their honeymoon package includes wine, a celebratory cake and bathrobes that you can bring home but you can use your resort credits to purchase a romantic beachfront dinner. Again, WOW!
I think was the biggest surprise for My Vacation Lady. It was never on our radar but a few of our colleagues had mentioned it so we decide to visit and we are so glad that we did. The name is pronounced LIVE- as we breathe to LIVE vs. I feel aLIVE. With 8 restaurants (including one that had a hidden garden) great pools, beach and spa, a chic and modern lobby and a great location (across from La Isla Mall), I’m really excited to send some of my honeymooners to Live Aqua.
Secrets the Vine
We stayed at Secrets the Vine for 3 nights after spending 5 nights in the Riviera Maya and from the moment we stepped into the lobby, we knew that we were somewhere special. This hotel is different without the traditional large lobby but instead the library serves as the gathering place. Perfect for wine lovers, Secrets the Vine offers 2 complimentary wine tastings per day. The beach is gorgeous and there are 4 pools. For honeymooners staying 7 nights or more in one of the preferred club rooms, you will enjoy a romantic beachfront dinner, breakfast in bed and a couples massage.
My Vacation Lady takes the time to get to know our honeymoon clients before recommending a destination or resort. As one of our recent honeymooners wrote, “ “We worked with Mindy at My Vacation Lady and we are very pleased. Of all the agents we talked to, she was the only one who had an initial consultation in order to get to know us. That did it for us! The personal touch and interest in our likes and dislikes is unusual and we truly appreciate that. From planning to execution, Mindy was available to answer all of our questions and she assisted with working with our budget.
We will definitely work with Mindy again and we have already referred a few of our friends to her. Thank you very much for all your help, Mindy!!!”
Don’t you deserve the best when planning your dream honeymoon?
