When it comes to choosing your stay during your next Playa del Carmen getaway, you’re truly spoiled for choice, as there are dozens of world-class all-inclusives to choose from.
Moreover, new hotels are being opened constantly in this charming beach town, so this endeavor can get tricky.
While a quick browse on TripAdvisor might provide some good leads, it’s worth paying attention when a reputable publication like Forbes releases a list of the best all-inclusive resorts in Playa del Carmen.
Forbes’ selection came after careful considerations, including multiple visits and stays. The stunning Xcaret Arte snatched the ‘Best All-Inclusive Overall’ title, celebrated for its views, culinary offerings, and a plethora of activities guests can enjoy.
It’s not just Forbes, though, since Xcaret Arte has garnered more than a few accolades, one of the most notorious ones being the ‘Best Resort In Mexico’ at the Travel + Leisure ‘The World’s Best Awards 2023.’
And when you delve a bit deeper, it becomes clear why.

Boasting one of the most stylish designs in the whole Riviera Maya, Xcaret Arte was created, drawing inspiration from Mexican artists and local culture.
It also features a collection of amenities and other perks that simply can’t be found at other Playa del Carmen resorts.
Yet there’s much more to discover about this top-rated resort, so if you’re curious to find out what sets Xcaret Arte apart as Forbes’ top pick, read on.
Taking The All-Inclusive Concept To New Heights
One of the main reasons travelers love the Mexican Caribbean is its exceptional all-inclusive offerings.

In fact, even in the age of Airbnb and vacation rentals, all-inclusives remain the preferred choice, especially among American travelers.
And with its All-Fun Inclusive® concept, Hotel Xcaret Arte redefines what an all-inclusive experience should be.
As you might have guessed, Hotel Xcaret Arte belongs to the Xcaret group, renowned for the highly popular Xcaret park and many other iconic parks.

So, during your stay, not only do you get access to standard amenities like reception service, hotel-airport transportation, unlimited food and drinks (more on that later), but also access to all of the Xcaret parks: Xcaret, Xel-Há, Xplor, Xplor Fuego, Xenses, Xoximilco, Xavage, and Xenotes.
But it doesn’t end there, as guests can also enjoy exclusive artistic activities at the hotel’s distinct ‘Casas’, including pottery, dance, painting, weaving, and literature.
This makes Hotel Xcaret Arte an excellent choice not only for couples and groups of friends but also for artists and creatives who will find these workshops an unparalleled and inspiring experience, allowing them to connect with the rich Mexican culture and art scene.
Speaking of art and culture, you’ll find these elements practically everywhere in the resort, from the 900 adult-only suites to the restaurants, common areas, and even the lobby.
Hotel Xcaret promises an unparalleled stay, as beyond its exquisite design, the resort’s suites offer a wide range of choices.
You can pick between garden, river, and sea views, with some suites offering private pools and even spa bath access.
This range of options extends to the resort’s culinary offerings, an aspect highly celebrated by Forbes.
The standout of the resort’s 9 world-class restaurants is Xaak, spearheaded by Michelin-starred chef Paco Mendez, along with other 4 renowned chefs.
Together, they craft a creative and innovative take on contemporary Mexican cuisine using the finest local ingredients.
The culinary journey doesn’t stop there. Kibi Kibi presents a delightful Lebanese/Yucatecan fusion menu, while Mercado de San Juan, inspired by one of Mexico City’s most iconic markets, is the place to go for a taste of authentic, mouth-watering Mexican cuisine.
Finally, Hotel Xcaret Arte’s Muluk Spa, whose hydrotherapy rituals were also praised by Forbes, promises a rejuvenating and relaxing experience with personalized treatments, salt rooms, massage cabins, and much more.
Few all-inclusive resorts in Playa del Carmen and even the whole Mexican Caribbean region can hold a candle to Hotel Xcaret Arte, thanks to its outstanding amenities, services, design, and experiences. So, its recognition by Forbes as the best all-inclusive in Playa del Carmen is nothing but well-deserved.
