Cancun's Hotels for Adults: From Lavish Luxury to Seductive Sanctuaries

When it comes to lodging, Cancun has it all. Whether you are looking for a budget hotel with a European plan (room only) or a luxury all-inclusive resort, you'll find it in this world-class beach vacation destination.

Cancun is happy to welcome families with children of all ages, but for some travelers, a trip with the kids (or other peoples' kids) is not considered a vacation. Hence, adult-only resorts!

Cancun's number one adult-only resort is Le Blanc Spa Resort. Located in Cancun's Hotel Zone, Le Blanc is a AAA 5 Diamond Award resort, so visitors can expect only the best. Live Aqua, Sun Palace, Temptation (topless optional) and Secrets the Vine are other highly rated adult-only resorts in the Hotel Zone.

Puerto Morelos, a small fishing village located 25 minutes south of Cancun boasts Excellence Riviera Cancun, Secrets Silversands and two Desire resorts (clothing optional) for adults and couples. Travel a little further south and you'll also find El Dorado Casitas Royale.

These adult and couples-only resorts feature romantic restaurants, guest rooms with amenities like in-room hot tubs, lively nightlife and adult-themed entertainment. They provide the perfect setting for romantic escapes, weddings, honeymoons and anniversaries.

Note: "Adult-only" generally refers to ages 21 and up.
