All Inclusive Resorts In Mexico For Young Adults

Lisa asks…

Jamaica vacation for parents and 20 somethings – not couples, not nudists, no kids?

Want to take our adult son and daughter to jama for beach and nightlife. Seems lots of couples only, nude resorts or 10,000 screaming children. Where can we go to have fun, be safe, etc. Would love an allinclusive, probably in Negril or Ocho Rios. Thanks

Hi MaryNoName. I’ve done quite a bit of traveling in the last decade (Costa Rica, places in Mexico, various Caribbean islands). Went to Jamaica a few years ago,Negril more specifically and you may want to check out www.negril.com for more info. We stayed at the Hotel Sam Sara on the cliffs in Negril. A cliffside motel is definitely the option if you want privacy from busy beaches and from being “solicited” from the locals. The hotel Sam Sara was definitely an older, smaller, quiter resort without any beach, a small pool and simple/basic rooms (which were adequate enough for us). We went in March (leaving from Detroit) and the cost was under $600 all-inclusive for the week. The meals were okay, but the selection was limited and similar every night. After awhile we simply walked across the street for breakfast at Choices and went out for lunch/dinner a couple times to LTU and Kuyuba. The best thing about the Sam Sara is that it has a sister resort-Legends-on the beach so as a guest at the Sam Sara we could take the free shuttle to Legends, enjoy their (busy just like all the beaches) beach, use the equipment there, eat and drink there, etc. We did take advantage of this service a few times and, after spending the day at the busy beach, we returned to our quiet, relaxing little resort. I did feel quite safe my entire visit to Negril. From my experience, the beach resorts are busier, louder, generally filled with young kids (unless it is one of those “adult” resorts like Hedonism) and you get solicited from the locals because the beaches are public and not privately owned by the resorts; cliffside hotels should be quiter as a rule for these reasons. If you don’t mind simple, basic rooms the Sam Sara may be okay for you- if you want something fancier check out the website I mentioned.

David asks…

Cancun or Riviera Maya? And which resort?

Ok, so going to Mexico in October for a short stay with my boyfriend. We are torn between Cancun and Riviera Maya. If we go to Cancun we are looking at the Grand Oasis Caribbean, Grand Oasis Cancun and the Golden Parnassus. If we stay in Riviera Maya, we are looking at the Iberostar Tucan, We are definitely staying at an All Inclusive and on a budget but want to make sure we make the right choice in our destination and then in a resort. What is the pros/cons of Cancun and Riviera Maya for two young adults (25 & 27) who are only there for a short stay, like to have fun, but also want to relax and get the most out of our experience????

Only ever passed through Cancun and so cannot really help with your comparison. I have however stayed in Puerta Aventura about an hours drive south of Cancun twice and both times at the same hotel.

Puerta Aventura – small village community with high quality housing, shops, bars, restaurants, hotels, marina, car hire, taxis and it is gated in that to get in you have to pass through a security checkpoint from the main road. The marina is where the swimming with dolphins happens and you can wander round and just watch if you do not want to do it yourself.

Catalonia Riviera Maya hotel – not large by the areas standards but big enough and shared with Yucatan hotel next door so good facilities. Free bus to Playa del Carmen up the road if you want to get out for nightlife, shopping or a change of scenery. Good private beach and lagoon and 7 pools. Food and booze is good quality and available from 7am to 2 pm. What really makes it is the staff – i have stayed in 5 star hotels in London and the staff at the Cat could give them a lesson in how to do it right. We have been there twice and will be going again in 2010.

Some of the larger hotels are so big that they provide “road trains” to get you to and from some parts of them!

Have a look at the site link below for reviews. A few of the UK main tour operators use this hotel. We went first with Virgin and then with Thomson Holidays

Tijuana answers:

There are a TON of all inclusive resort options in Cancun and to the north and south. Your best bet is to talk to a travel agent or go to a site like travelocity or expedia- type in your dates and then refine your search using “all inclusive.” Get an idea of your price range (you can put the hotel and airfare together), and there should be quite a few hotels within your budget. You can go to the hotel’s websites (or Google them) to see exactly which one offers. Most of them have the same amenities, but may very depending on what you are looking for. Also check out TripAdvisor- it’s definitely a fantastic site to use when planning a vacation, you can read a ton of reviews and see actual pictures (not just the professional ones the hotels use), to get a good feel and look of the place. Obviously what the resort offers is most of what you are looking for, but something else to consider is if you are planning on going off resort or not- many hotels are near a city- Cancun, Playa del Carmen, ect., but some are secluded, so keep that in mind as you look.
