Excellence Playa Mujeres, Cancun
Opened in 2007, this adults-only all-inclusive is "a bit of heaven on earth." Situated north of Cancún, near an inland marina and Greg Norman-designed golf course, this "beautiful property" has seven pools on a white sand beach. "Gorgeous rooms and suites"—many with a rooftop terrace and a private whirlpool—are furnished in contemporary style. "The food was better than expected" at the nine international restaurants, including Basmati, the Indian place. The spa offers private relaxation rooms with heated waterbeds, Swedish saunas, and steam rooms. "We're returning for the fourth time later this year—need I say more?"
