Even though Cancun has a reputation for being a party destination, there are plenty of things that make it a great family vacation destination too.

Everyone can enjoy snorkeling in the warm Caribbean water, soaking up the sun on the stunning white sand beaches, exploring the ancient Mayan ruins, and being pampered at one of the city’s family-friendly luxury all-inclusive resorts.   

And one new all-inclusive, in particular, is perfect for a family vacation, and we’ll tell you why.   

The Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun 

The Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun, an Autograph Collection All-Inclusive Resort, opened in December 2022.   

The Marriott branded resort is located only about 35 minutes from Cancun International Airport, in a more secluded part of the city, away from the bustling Hotel Zone.   

Despite its quieter location, it is still close enough to all that Cancun has to offer.

Why The Resort Is Perfect For Families 

The massive Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun property is a haven for children of all ages and for adults too.   

On it, you will not only have the luxury of three family-friendly infinity pools, but you’ll also find one of the largest water parks in the Mexican Caribbean, featuring lazy rivers, splash pads, and 10 giant water slides.   

The resort property also has a bowling alley, laser tag, an arcade, and a three-level kid’s club, supervised so parents can take a break from the kids for a little alone time.

Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun Reviews 

Some guests that stayed at the Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun right after it opened commented that maybe it wasn’t quite ready to welcome guests.   

But most more recent reviewers have had nothing but good things to say about the resort.   

The pools, the water park, and the service from the staff were among the features that received the most positive reviews from guests who have stayed at the resort.
