Secrets Resorts - Secrets St Martin


Secrets St Martin is an adults only all inclusive resort on the Ansel Marcel beach on the French side of the island. It had a pre-opening in March 2020. 

The resort has a small beach with great views and one of the largest pools in the Caribbean. I think this opening is great for St Martin. It provides Secrets lovers with another location to explore and those who want an adults only all inclusive on this great island a place to stay.

It's been a hotel since 2007 and added a new tower in 2018.  The resort is very unique offering several different types of accommodations including a two bedroom suite attached to a little island. 

A big thank you to Sanctuary Cap Cana for the resort tour.

Majestic Elegance Costa Mujeres



 
 
I have to be honest. I was wow'd by my first impression of Majestic Elegance Costa Mujeres. This is a family friendly resort split into the adults only Club section and the family section. It's important to know for families that it is family friendly, but not family focused. This is a good choice for families that tend to spend their time all together versus the kids hanging out in the kids' club. It has a zero entry pool and most of the areas are accessible without going up stairs.

The Club has butlers, room service 24/7, a la carte breakfast and lunch, liquor available in the room, and clubs in each building. The Club section makes up about 70% of the rooms.  The rooms are terrific. The beach is wide and gorgeous. The Bali beds are first come first serve.

Now Natura



Now Natura is a brand new family all inclusive resort in Puerto Morales, Mexico. It opened March 2020. This video was filmed before it opened.
 
I loved the design of this resort. Each space has its own personality and air conditioning.  The ice cream cone themed Coco Cafe and the cenote themed spa are two of my favorite spaces. 
 
For rooms, they added It's one of the few resorts where some of the swim up suites offer a peek of the ocean. The Presidential suite has its own plunge pool and an outdoor shower. The resort will have a fun water park and splash zone. 

The resort is well equipped to handle large families and groups. Most of the restaurants have areas that could be available for a semi private dinner.

Hard Rock Riviera Maya Heaven and Hacienda



Hard Rock Riviera Maya is a family friendly resort with an adults only section called Heaven. This is a fun, active resort that's a great value.
 
Most bookings come with a limitless inclusion package. This means select excursions, spa treatments and on resort experiences like Bali beds and Chef's dinner are included. You pay a 25% service charge. We did the Couples Dolphin Swim for $100 for both us, a Bali bed for $50, and the Chefs Dinner for $58 for both of us. Such a deal!
 
The dining and service are great. It's a terrific resort for groups. This is also one of the very few adults only resorts I've visited that had true nightlife.
