Cancun is home to many all-inclusive luxury resorts, most of them for adults only. However, now families who are looking for a five-star experience also have a place to go: Finest Playa Mujeres.
The Playa Mujeres area is located in Cancun, but it's not part of the bustling Hotel Zone; instead, it's an area north of Cancun that faces the island of Isla Mujeres. This means the white sand beaches are calm and perfect for swimming – that is, if the 10 swimming pools aren’t enough for you.
Finest Playa Mujeres welcomes everyone, including couples, families and groups. The focus here is “connection, restoration and wellbeing."

A coffee machine, a stocked mini bar with beer, juices, soft drinks, water and snacks; in-room premium liquor and wine bottle selection; 24-hour room service; a service box for room service; a pillow menu; and turn-down service only add to the long list of in-room perks.
Full bathrooms in the suites include a rain shower for two, separate water closet and double vanities equipped with hair dryer, scale, vanity mirror and VIP toiletries.
Suites with a rooftop terrace feature an additional exterior plunge pool, which is heated in winter. Finest also offers Pool Junior Suites and Pool Swim-Up Suites.
It should be noted that there's an adults-only section, too: Excellence Club. Its suites offer special access to a private bar, pool, restaurant and concierge services.
