Nothing says Mexico like mariachis, margaritas, and all-inclusive resorts. While there are many resorts that make the all-inclusive claim, few cater to the ultra-affluent, meet the standards of AAA’s highest Diamond Rating and are acceptable for the most discerning travelers. Luckily, like a diamond in the rough, they do exist, and we’ve found them for you. Here’s a look at Mexico’s most chic and lux all-inclusive resorts.
Grand Velas Riviera Maya
With a list of awards that read like a well-written resume, Grand Velas Riviera Maya has earned 52 AAA Diamonds, ‘Forbes’ Four Star Award, Trip Advisor’s #1 all-inclusive resort, and is part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts. Nestled on more than 80 pristine acres, between the Caribbean Sea and the Yucatan jungle, the resort is brimming with idyllic beaches, cenotes, and lagoons filled with marine life. With three unique experiences: the Romantic Escape, Family Adventures, and Secluded Relaxation, there is a variety of options based on your preferences.

Gourmet dining includes fine dining at the five-diamond rated Cocina de Autor to all-inclusive a la carte meals at seven signature restaurants.
