The Explorean Cozumel is another all-inclusive resort on the island. Unfortunately, unlike Secrets Aura, The Explorean is a family-friendly hotel, meaning it doesn’t have quite the same ambiance as an adult only. With that said, the resort does have a very intimate setting and there is plenty of peace and quiet to be found.

Surrounded by tropical jungle, The Explorean lives up to its name and provides visitors with a sense of exotic isolation while catering to unparalleled comforts within its extensive complex.

Onsite facilities include a beautiful outdoor swimming pool, a full-service spa and wellness center, and an onsite restaurant serving a delicious sampling of international dishes and cocktails.

While offering state-of-the-art comfort, The Explorean makes for a great base for exploring the island. Guests craving adventure can dive into the vibrant aquatic life of the Caribbean with complementary snorkels provided by the property, while the Chankanaab Natural Park is just 15 minutes away and is popular for nature hikes and swimming with dolphins.

Luxury All-Inclusive Welcoming Guests 12 Years of Age and Older

Ventanas al Mar Image by: ventanasalmarcozumel.com

Ventanas al Mar is another Cozumel resort that gives the feel of an adults-only all-inclusive, but does come with a few caveats.

For starters, while it is listed as adults-only, the resort defines an adult as anyone 12 years of age or older. So, while you won’t find young children running around, there may still be teenagers and preteens onsite.

Secondly, Ventanas al-Mar isn’t entirely all-inclusive. While complimentary breakfast is included in the nightly rate, the hotel does feature some additional charges for some of its onsite facilities.

Still, the hotel property itself very much has that all-inclusive resort feel, with amenities including an onsite restaurant and bar, and beautiful outdoor swimming pool, and a private beachfront area with beach loungers and umbrellas.

One final bonus that comes with staying at the Ventanas al Mar is that it is located along the southern coast of the island, away from the main tourist hub of the western shore, making it a great choice for those guests that prefer a quieter, more laid back hotel to a bustling resort.
