Secrets Capri Riviera Maya

This adults-only, all-inclusive resort has something for everyone. With only 196 rooms, the resort has an intimate feel. There are 5 al a carte, gourmet restaurants with no reservations required, plus a buffet restaurant and a café.

For active guests, there is always something going on; water sports, beach volleyball, a nice beach, a huge swimming pool with swim-up bar, and live, nightly entertainment. The resort also shows movies under the stars and when I visited, they were showing Monday Night Football on an outside screen set up by the pool. There is also golf nearby and at times, free greens fees are offered.

There is also a gorgeous spa, exercise classes, interactive cooking classes, dance lessons, tequila tastings, Spanish lessons, wine tastings and more. Oh, and if you want to lay by the pool or relax on the beach with a good book, that’s OK, too!
