Take it from us: when it comes to planning your next family vacation, the right setting makes a world of difference.

These all-inclusive family resorts in Mexico have all the ingredients for an ideal getaway. Family suites, water parks, white-sand beaches, kid-friendly dining options, sports, live entertainment and fun activities for everyone (including some adults-only diversions) make these properties stand out from the rest.

Take a look through our favourite all-inclusive resorts in Cancun, Riviera Maya, Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos (and don't forget to ask our travel consultants for the latest tips on planning a trip to Mexico).


1. Grand at Moon Palace

The Grand Family Deluxe suite welcomes the crew with a bottle of wine in one room and a fridge full of milkshakes in the other; your personal Xbox 360 is just the cherry on top! One thing's for sure: every moment spent at this premiere family resort has been carefully designed for maximum quality time.

You can embrace your playful side at the water park, arcade, beach or bowling lanes. Then, recharge with a deep tissue massage at the resort's world-class spa, so you can do it all over again the next day. With tons to do for guests of all ages, The Grand at Moon Palace Cancun is truly one of the best all-inclusive resorts.

2. Panama Jack Resorts Cancun

“Who wants the top bunk?” Panama Jack's intuitive family suites are the perfect place to unwind. Then again, so are the private beach cabanas and sprawling swimming pools.

And if it's excitement you're after, Camp Jack's magic shows, mini-golf and water park deliver big. Older kids can enjoy the teen hangout space, #Hashtag, or the whole gang can come together for a friendly game of beach soccer.

Whether you're practicing your child's pose on the beach or enjoying a grown-up drink in the VIP lounge; whether you're dining at the hot dog stand or the waterfront Mongolian grill, Panama Jack Cancun is goes above and beyond being kid-friendly, making sure everyone feels at home.

3. Finest Playa Mujeres

Try something new together! At Finest Playa Mujeres, make memories every day with activities like windsurfing, air rifles, SUP and dance classes. Even a spa day can be a family affair. ONE Spa offers signature treatments for all ages, including mini massages and fruit scrubs for little ones.

Don't worry! Adults-only time isn't overlooked, either. You can drop off the kids at the Imagine Lounge while you relish a quiet breakfast or dinner, or take full advantage of the adults-only Excellence Club any time you like.

You'll enjoy spacious suites with plenty of room for six (and a pillow menu so that even the lightest sleepers can be comfortable). Finest Playa Mujeres even makes vacationing with a baby a breeze, thanks to their baby care amenities like bottle sterilizers, baby monitors and infant bathtubs.

Riviera Maya

4. Hacienda Tres Rios

At this locally owned family-friendly all-inclusive resort, you can't go wrong. Spend a day exploring the ten cenotes found in Hacienda Tres Rios' privately owned nature park. Make the next day all about water sports. The day after that, how about some archery? Batting cage? Jungle kart tours? The family fun is endless!

The resort's restaurants (there are nine!), a pool bar, and several guided tasting menus and private dining experiences create a wealth of options for guests of all ages to enjoy. Plus, with family suites designed for groups of up to eight guests, simply relaxing will be one of the best parts of your vacay.

5. Hotel Xcaret

This locally-owned eco-resort coined the term All-Fun Inclusive®, and it's easy to see why. Every inch of the family-friendly resort itself is stunning. But the biggest draw is Xcaret Park. There's nothing quite like it! Your stay at Hotel Xcaret comes with unlimited access to Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Xplor, Xplor Fuego, Xavage, Xoximilco, Xenses, Xenotes and Xichen.

In other words, you'll be completely torn between wanting to spend all day relaxing in your lavish family suite and going all-in at one of Xcaret Park's attractions. Think: underground rivers, archaeological sites, scuba diving, ziplining, ropes courses, monster trucks… the list somehow still goes on!

6. Hard Rock Riviera Maya

Having fun is never hard at the family-friendly Hard Rock Riviera Maya — even if you're travelling with a baby or toddler. Ask your travel consultant about this resort's Ultimate Playtime package options for little travellers. With heaps of baby amenities, plus three hours of babysitting services, the answer is “no, you don't have to figure out how to fit a stroller in your suitcase”.

And for the big kids, Hard Rock has some show-stopping experiences. Hang out at Roxity Kids Club or get the full Rockstar experience at Kidz Bop, where stars-in-the-making can select a red-carpet wardrobe, create a band, design tour merch, get a paparazzi photoshoot and even perform on stage.

A full-service beach and five sparkling pools, plus several family suite options with connecting rooms round out one of the best all-inclusive resorts in Riviera Maya.

Los Cabos

7. Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos

There's something for the entire family at Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos — from dawn to dusk! Gather around the floating fire pits for some R&R under the stars, sneak in a snooze in your private family cabana on the beach or get rid of some extra energy with the resort's fun daily activities.

Little guests can have a blast at the kids club, kids pool and mini waterpark while the big kids (and the young at heart) can dive into the many non-motorized water sports available on site. For those who prefer a low-key day, four swimming pools, two hot tubs and an adults-only pool offer the perfect setting for stretching out under the sun.

Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos's family suites, babysitting services and no fewer than seven restaurants combine to create the perfect family getaway.

Puerto Vallarta

8. Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta

Just a half-hour drive from the airport, Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta is the ideal location for families who want to maximize their vacay time (not to mention cut down on the number of bathroom trips necessary for the small-bladdered among them).

The ocean view guest rooms at this beachfront property are a wonderful treat; there's nothing quite like being lullabied by gently crashing waves. But the view isn't the only thing you'll remember about this all-inclusive resort! Depending on the time of your stay, you and the kids can take part in Hyatt Ziva's very special sea turtle release program.

As far as entertainment goes, the KidZ Club, cooking classes, local tours, beach sports and outdoor pools make it easy to craft lifelong memories.

9. Now Amber Puerto Vallarta

There's always a certain member of the family that gets left behind, isn't there? Fortunately, Now Amber Puerto Vallarta welcomes the whole crew — including family members of the small and furry variety. So, take Fido along for the ride and enjoy your family vacation together at last.

The rest of you, meanwhile, can enjoy long and full days out in the sun, thanks to this luxury resort's wide variety of water sports. Kayaking, snorkelling, deep-sea adventures, Hobie cats, stand-up paddleboards and scuba diving lessons are always right at your fingertips.

Your whole family can also divide and conquer the day, thanks to the activities at Kids Explorer's Club, Core Zone Teen's Club, and the nearby golf course (hello, complimentary green fees!). With 10 food and drink choices offered on site, you can all look forward to sharing a meal together at the end of the day.
