Beautiful white-sand beaches, close proximity to the United States, and a large selection of adults-only resorts make Cancun and the Riviera Maya excellent spots for a romantic getaway. Three incredibly luxurious resorts that are ideal for a romantic getaway are Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun, Excellence Playa Mujeres, and Le Blanc Spa Resort. Each of these luxury resorts are exclusively for adults and have outstanding service, gourmet cuisine, top-shelf liquors and premium wines. All three of these resorts also have excellent spas that offer a wide variety of treatments.

Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun is one of the most romantic hotels in the Cancun area. This luxury all-inclusive resort is located approximately thirty miles from the airport, on a secluded stretch of beach which is perfect for long, romantic walks with your sweetheart. Each of the hotel's Junior Suites has a two-person jacuzzi tub and is decorated with dark woods and rich, vibrant colors. Gourmet food is served at the resort's restaurants but, if you prefer to stay in your room, 24-hour room service is available. Secrets Resorts & Spas has several resorts in Riviera Maya but, at the moment, they do not have any properties in Cancun. That will change in the near future, when Secrets The Vine opens, in Cancun's hotel zone. The actual opening date has not yet been announced, but it is scheduled to open sometime in early 2012.

Excellence Playa Mujeres is in the exclusive Playa Mujeres area, located about 15 minutes from downtown Cancun. Although this resort is located near downtown Cancun, it is in a remote, secluded area which is great for couples looking for privacy. The hotel's luxurious suites were designed with romance in mind. Each one has a four-poster bed, a double shower, for two people, and a round jacuzzi tub. Some suites have a private plunge pool on the terrace. Room service is available 24 hours a day, so you never have to leave your elegant suite, if you don't want to. There is even a box where room service orders can be placed so you don't have to be bothered with answering the door, when your food arrives.

Le Blanc Spa Resort is located in Cancun's hotel zone, near shopping, nightlife, and restaurants. This small, luxury resort has one of Cancun's finest spas, where you and your significant other can get a relaxing couples massage. For a truly romantic evening, arrange to have dinner on the beach. Several nights a week, the hotel sets up several tables on the beach where guests can dine under the stars. This activity is not included in the resort's all-inclusive package but, for a special occasion, it is well worth the extra money. The hotel's Italian and French restaurants are also lovely, intimate settings, if the weather doesn't allow for dining on the beach. Another romantic way to pass your time at Le Blanc is to order room service and dine in your room. Each room has a two-person jacuzzi tub, which is a great place to relax and unwind at the end of the day.
All of the resorts mentioned above are all-inclusive resorts, which means that all meals, snacks, and beverages are included, throughout your stay. If you prefer resorts that do not have food and drinks included in the price of the room, check out The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun, JW Marriott Cancun, and Le Meridien Cancun Resort & Spa. Each of these luxury resorts are also excellent choices for a romantic vacation but no meals or drinks are included and they are not exclusively for adults.
