Grand Riviera Princess
The Grand Riviera Princess is aptly named, as everything about this incredible luxury complex is supersized and designed to pamper guests to the full. Not only does it boast a beach-front location, but there are also eight pools, eight restaurants, tropical gardens, plus close proximity to Playa del Carmen, the resort’s centre. The bedrooms here have been finished to an exceptional standard, with some offering the opulent option of a whirlpool bath. But with so much to enjoy in the grounds, you’ll barely spend any time in your room. Even the kids are well catered for, with their own pools. But the main draw is the beach, where there are plenty of loungers and parasols to take advantage of, and gentle waters for paddling.

Things to do in Riviera Maya
An exotic location, Riviera Maya has lots of beaches to be enjoyed, so lazy days under the sun are a must. The clear waters make for excellent diving as well, with coral reefs waiting to be explored, as well as intriguing cenotes. These under-water passageways lead to secret rivers below the ground, which are amazing to behold. If you need to zen out, you’ll find a yoga retreat in Tulum, just 40 minutes away by car. Perfect for reconnecting with yourself and shaking off lingering real-world stresses, a few hours of meditating and stretching will have you feeling like new. History buffs will enjoy a trip to the Temple of Frescoes, the most preserved building in Tulum. A day of exploring will help you work up a serious appetite for some tasty food, and you’ll really appreciate a cooling dip in the sea here, too.
