Zoëtry Paraíso de la Bonita Riviera Maya, Puerto Morelos $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
The enormous, adults-only Paraíso has become a Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resort, the first in a new brand from the company that owns the region's many Dreams and Secrets resorts. However, the only thing that has changed is the name: The 90 massive suites and a 22,000-square-foot thalassotherapy center and spa remain as before. The hotel may profess to be about relaxation, but the rooms themselves have been designed to within an inch of their lives, with an overwhelming number of ethnic objets d'art and antiques. Thankfully, the rest of the hotel hits the mark: The navy freshwater pool begs to be jumped into; the beach is quiet and pristine; the restaurants are varied and all worth taking seriously; and the toiletries have the right Italian names. The sheer luxuriousness is a bit over the top—and yet so easy to get used to.
