Every time someone asks me where to go on holidays to the beach in winter my answer is always the same: Riviera Maya. Why? Because you have the best weather, paradisiac beaches right in front of the resort, excellent service, friendly people and the best Mexican food!
In my last trip to Mexico I have discovered the perfect stay that meets all the previous requirements.
Unico 2087 hotel. The super luxury all inclusive adults only hotel. Let me tell you why you should go!
HOW TO GET HERE
To arrive to Unico first you will need to land in Cancun airport. Many airlines fly direct here. From Cancun airport to Unico is 1 h drive.
I recommend you take a taxi /hotel transfer (since you will arrive tired from the plane etc) it will cost you about 90 dollars. You will find many private taxi companies just outside your luggage pickup.
Once in the hotel you have all you need so a car is only necessary if you want to go to a cenote, or drive to Tulum which is only about 20 minutes.
This is the best all inclusive resort I have ever been to. The property is gorgeous, all decorated with a Mexican style that will have you taking pictures all over the place. The room is modern and spacious, with the best feature being the jaccuzi on the terrace with sea views!
The hotel is located at one of the most amazing beaches in Riviera Maya, crystal clear waters and palm trees. Best place to relax. If you are more of a pool person there are also many different beautiful pools at the hotel. What we did was go to the beach in the morning and swap to the pool for lunch on the sun-beds and siesta!
Talking about the food, there are 5 different restaurants in the hotel from which you can choose.
The Mexican. The Chef Xavier Perez Stone will delight you with the highest Mexican gourmet experience.
The Mediterranean/Italian, perfect for a pizza or pasta night! The focaccia is delicious,
The Japanese – teppanyaki with live show cooking is definitely my favourite one! Make sure to book it in advance!
The American/ Meat restaurant for the steak lovers!!
There is also the pool/ beach clubs where you have all kinds of tacos, quesadillas, nachos, burgers and all the yummy food ready for you to order at anytime!
In case you feel like having a coffee snack there is also a Café open all day where you will find cakes, pastries and all kind of sweets!
Anddd the one I enjoy the most is the breakfast buffet, where you have all the possible tropical fruits, any kind of egg the way you want, cereal, quesadillas, all the teas..
If you are more of a party person there are many bars around the hotel where you can have cocktails tequilaaaa and all the drinks you want open bar. To end up the night make sure to go to the hotels disco!
There are also many sport activities to (compensate all the tacos) do during the day, yoga, volleyball, running, you can check all the activities on the app! Yes the Unico hotel has an app that you download when you arrive and can be upto date with all the activities.
There is a gym, a spa and a beauty center for you to relax and take care of your body! Try the couples massage!
Also you have many different shops inside the hotel, one does not need to leave the propertyyy!
About the service, you will be addressed a personal concierge upon your arrival who will make sure you stay is fantastic and will give you the best advice. I want to give special thanks to our vip concierge Alejandro who took super good care of us!
Can’t wait to go back again!!!
I recommend you to come here to disconnect from winter. Find some days to get away and feel the heat ,the sun, the sea. It will recharge you not only physically but also energetically!
You have everything you need in the Unico hotel, but in case you want to go explore you can rent a car inside the hotel! Cenote Manati one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen is just 10 minute drive from here! Check it out!
