Last Updated

For some, a tropical Mexican Caribbean vacation means doing nothing but laying pool side ordering all you can eat tacos and all you can drink piña coladas – no judgement here, that sounds awesome!

If this is your dream style vacation (or perhaps you simply appreciate convenience), Why not try your hand at renting a swim-up suite? Here are 5 top rated Riviera Maya hotels that feature swim-up suites.

The Royalton Riviera Cancun

The Royalton is huge all-inclusive hotel with over 800 rooms, 300 of those being in the adult-only “hideaway” section. There are 12 restaurants, 13 bars/lounges, a kids club, a luxurious spa, 11 swimming pools (1 splash park for the kiddos!) and what feels like a never ending list of sporting activities to take part in.

Their swim-up suites are popular and the overall location of this hotel is considered very desirable.

The Paradisus in Playa del Carmen is just like the name suggests, its absolute paradise! Catering to both adults and children, its also like one giant playground for the whole family. Their swim-up suites aren’t technically exclusive but, you can still take minimal steps outside your door before taking the plunge!

The Paradisus is basically made into two hotels. The adult-only side is called La Perla, and the family side is called La Esmerelda. And they’re one of the most popular hotels in the area so they must be doing something right!

Grand Riviera Sunset Princess

Excuse me while I myself pack my bags, fly to the Riviera Maya and continuously float around this hotel like a princess for the entire duration of my stay. No really, you can literally walk out your door, jump on a pool floatie and adventure around the hotel via agua! On your little in-house excursion you could even make a pit stop at one of their 12 restaurants, 17 bars or the spa – really, who’s stopping you?

They have 6 restaurants, 8 bars, a fitness center, spa and 12 pools including giant one that you can dip your toes in right from the steps of your suite.

Secrets Akumal

Last on this list but absolutely not least, Secrets Akumal! Located on one of the most breathtaking beaches in the area, it doesn’t get much more lavish than Secrets Akumal. Each of the 434 guest suites comes with a furnished balcony or terrace, some of the terraces are swim-up and provide direct access to a ultimate cool down.
