1. Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort and Spa in Los Cabos
The 4-star Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort and Spa is ideal for romantic retreats — in addition to limitless food and drinks, you'll also get plenty of grown-up time at this upscale adults-only resort. Five on-site restaurants are ready to impress you and your partner, and a shuttle service to sister resorts gives you access to even more dining options.
For true relaxation, sign up for a treatment at the resort's award-winning spa or chill out at one of its two swimming pools. TripAdvisor reviewers give this property more than four stars, helping to secure its reputation as one of the best all-inclusive resorts for couples.
2. Flamingo Cancun Resort
Located in the middle of the Hotel Zone, the Flamingo Cancun Resort boasts direct access to the beach, so you and your partner won't have far to go to enjoy sunny skies and ocean views.
Rooms are bright and cheerful and feature ocean or lagoon views. For some quiet time, head to the pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea, or have a few cocktails (included, of course!) at the Las Palmas swim-up bar.
3. Melia Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana
Punta Cana has long been a favorite of couples, thanks to its long stretch of beach, its blue-green water and its abundance of all-inclusive resorts.
At the Melia Caribe Tropical, each suite includes a separate living area and balconies or terraces, so the two of you will have plenty of space to stretch out. Choose from 13 restaurants and 14 bars, or find a space to sunbathe at one of 10 pools. For competitive couples, there's an on-site golf course — plus two spas to help you wind down after an afternoon under the sun.
4. Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica
Imagine afternoons spent decompressing on a tranquil cove beach in Runaway Bay, or sipping cocktails near one of three interconnected swimming pools. Sound appealing? That's just the beginning at the 4-star Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica, a luxury all-inclusive, all-suite resort with five restaurants and six bars.
The resort's Bahia Spa offers a steam bath, a sauna, an ice fountain, sensation showers and a heated pool, plus a range of massages and facial treatments. The Ska Disco is the place to dance to Caribbean and international music late into the night.
5. Dreams Puerto Aventuras Resort & Spa in the Riviera Maya
All of your private beach dreams can come true at the aptly named Dreams Puerto Aventuras Resort and Spa located in Tulum. Have a romantic meal at one of six restaurants and treat yourselves to limitless top-shelf spirits at the resort's four bars.
Guest rooms impress with flat-screen TVs and furnished terraces with garden or ocean views. Want to leave your room for a bit? Make a trip to the Mayan ruins on cliffs overlooking the sea.
6. Barcelo Gran Faro in Los Cabos
It's easy to see why we couldn't resist adding the 4-star Barcelo Gran Faro to our list of the best all-inclusive resorts for couples. For one thing, rooms feature private balconies that give views of the incredible Sea of Cortez. The adults-only pool and the infinity pool are perfect for couples, and the Deep Blue Spa offers a hydrotherapy circuit, exfoliation treatments and massage treatments.
Dine at the beachfront buffet restaurant, or try the modern Mexican cuisine at Las Jicamas, and then hit up the poolside bar for an after-dinner cocktail or a beer.
