Honeymooning in Mexico? Read our insider guide on where to stay

Nestled in the most luxurious of settings, Mexico has loads of honeymoon hotels caved into its Caribbean coast. So, if you’re looking for that idyllic honeymoon spot look no further. We’ve hand-picked our top four hotels based on their gorgeous suites and first-class service. Imagine sparkling wine on arrival, a basket of fruit in your room, a romantic dinner for two and in some cases, a free room upgrade, some of the perks of honeymooning in Mexico.

Riviera Maya

Why – Riviera Maya is the ideal setting for romance and luxury. Home to many of Mexico’s most stunning beaches you can’t go far wrong.

Top honeymoon hotel – The adults-only El Dorado Casitas in Riviera Maya was voted one of Conde Nast Traveler readers’ ‘Top 100 Hotels in the World’ thanks to its beachfront location and 24-hour gourmet all-inclusive. Set upon acres of tropical jungle, the resort features romantically designed suites, thatched roofs, a lavish spa, a concierge service and beach butlers.

Romantic highlights – A private 4-course candlelit dinner on the beach followed by breakfast in bed the morning after. And when it’s time to retire, your suite will be romantically decorated with rose petals and candles. But the main highlight has to be the bottle of champagne delivered to your room upon arrival and the complimentary beachfront massage.

Prices – This is one of the more expensive hotels in Mexico with prices starting from £1337 per person for a week of over-the-top opulence where you won’t have to lift a finger.


Why – Playacar is the jewel of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera, and is perfect for those seeking unspoilt beach hideaways. This gated community has a selection of luxury hotels and condos all with private beaches and palm trees.

Top honeymoon hotel – The Platinum Rui Palace Mexico in Playacar is an elegant hotel. Perfectly decorated in the traditional Mexican Hacienda style and surrounded by nature you won’t want to leave. Rooms at this hotel won’t disappoint either. Guests can expect sleek and stylish interior equipped with hydro-massage bath tubs, fluffy bath robes and 24-hour room service.

Romantic highlights – Honeymooners receive a complimentary fruit basket on arrival along with an extra bottle of tequila. Make sure you spend an evening on the terrace of Los Mariachis lounge bar. This is the perfect place for some stargazing as you watch the sun go down over Playacar beach.

Prices – Prices start from £973 per person for a week all-inclusive.

Puerto Vallarta

Why – Sophisticated Puerto Vallarta is all about white silky beaches and swaying palm trees, making it the ideal setting for love struck honeymooners. With its bustling marina and picturesque old town this is the most charming resort in Mexico.

The property radiates luxury with its sweeping marble floors, elaborate light fittings and contemporary interiors. 5-star luxury comes as standard here. With a string of gourmet restaurants and a luxury spa, including a sleek infinity pool, what more could you ask for?

Romantic highlights – A fruit basket and a bottle of sparkling wine will be delivered to your room on arrival. For the best views try the sushi restaurant O’West. Here you’ll find an outdoor terrace which overlooks the Pacific Ocean or if you want the full romantic experience then why not book a table on the beach for a private dinner whilst you watch the sunset?

Prices – Prices start from £885 per person for a luxurious and relaxing holiday.


Why – Hotspot Cancun has over 12 miles of white sandy beaches that arch along its vibrant Hotel Zone. The east side faces the Caribbean so you’ll be blessed with turquoise waters and gushing waves while the north side offers  more tranquil waters and is protected by a small island.

Top honeymoon hotel – The luxury Beach Palace Cancun recently featured in the Traveler’s choice ‘top 25 all-inclusive resorts in Mexico’. The property has a contemporary Mexican feel with its Sky Floor, two rooftop pools, swim-up bars and views overlooking the Nichupte Lagoon, making this hotel the obvious choice for all honeymooners. The deluxe bedrooms come with your own Jacuzzi, fluffy bath robes and finishing touches such as hair straighteners and liquid dispensers.

Romantic highlights – You’ll receive a fruit basket and a bottle of sparkling wine on arrival. But the main highlights have to be the candlelit dinner in one of the hotel’s restaurants combined with the late checkout. Plus, the luxury spa has a couple’s suite so you’ll be able to enjoy a side by side massage with your loved one. Treatments include a chocolate wrap and a Mayan massage, so for anyone seeking some only-in-Mexico pampering this hotel is a must. As the evening approaches it’s time to wind down and a sunset cocktail at the hotel’s Sky Floor is the place to start.
