Talc-white beaches, reefs teeming with life, ruined temples in misty rainforests – the Riviera Maya offers a family or romantic beach holiday with a dash of Indian Jones adventure.

Official star rating:
Location, location… There is no better in Tulum. The broadest, whitest beach, the ruins perched on the cliff right outside your door.
Each cabin is glass-fronted and comes with a large deck. Interiors are dominated by queen sizes and decked out in polished rustic local woods and palm-thatch and fashionably furnished with distressed wood wardrobes. Walls are painted ochre and warm yellow.
And while the palm-thatch cabins are very simple, they open onto the ocean. The most luxurious resorts in Tulum don’t have this view or this quality of beach; let alone at such a great-value price. There is, however, no pool.
Tulum ruins sit on a cliff 5-minutes’ walk away, the aquamarine sea laps a white sand beach just beyond the balcony and the reef is within swimming distance.
The resort has a simple seafood-focused restaurant. Others lie a stroll away along the beach, most of them doubling up as margarita and mojito beach bars. Tulum village – and more eat-out options are a thirty-minute bike or a 10-minute cab ride away.
