Best ALL Inclusive Resorts in Tulum
Longing for the ultimate all-inclusive resorts in Tulum? Look no further!
Tulum is a beautiful beach town on Mexico‘s Yucatan Peninsula. Preceding its newfound fame, Tulum was a humble fishing village. In recent years it has become a sought-after global destination thanks to its perfect blend of luxury and carefree bohemian vibes. As such, it is home to outstanding all-inclusive hotels dotted along its beautiful coastline.
We have been visiting Tulum for the past 6 years and we’ve compiled our top 10 recommendations – both and family-friendly and adults-only all-inclusive resorts- for an unforgettable stay at an all-inclusive resort in Tulum!
Note: There are only two all-inclusive resorts available in Tulum – Dreams Resort Tulum and Kore Retreat Tulum. For an even wider variety of choices, this list extends to the all-inclusive resorts that are a very short distance from Tulum. Most are situated in Akumal, 15 minutes north of Tulum.
As one of the top all-inclusive hotels in Tulum, this this award-winning resort is a paragon of true luxury. What is unique about Dreams Tulum is that it offers both family-friendly and an exclusive adults-only all inclusive resort area and experience to provide complete seclusion and comfort…trust us when we say you will not even know that there is a family section. The resort is located along two miles of pristine ivory sand beaches with breathtaking views from every single suite and room’s private terrace or balcony. It also offers outstanding amenities that will for sure endlessly entertain you and your company…as it did ours!
We soaked up some sun in the private beach and two refreshing pools, while our kids splashed at the kid-friendly water park. There are free dance lessons and Spanish classes for those interested in indulging in Mexican culture. The list of activities is endless from weekly poolside soirees to scuba diving courses. And once you’re done exploring the hotel, the nearby Mayan ruins, magnificent cenotes, and the geat restaurants and bars of Tulum, there’s no better way to unwind than by visiting the Spa resort for a relaxing massage or treatment.
The hotel has an amazing 9 distinct restaurants and 7 bars… the dining and entertainment options here are endless. Our family loved trying all the different restaurants. We loved the tacos and burritos and the refreshing beers and margaritas at El Patio’s vibrant atmosphere. Himitsu restaurant serves delicious Pan Asian dishes that will certainly tantalize your taste buds. And how about the bars you asking…well make sure that after spending some time in the pool you head over to Manatee Bar for refreshing cocktails and amazing fruit smoothies!

The last resort of the four Bahia Principe properties is also the grandest one of them all: The Bahia Principe Grand Coba boasts more than 1,000 luxurious rooms.
Coba resort offers countless activities and amenities that keep our whole family comfortable, entertained, and well-rested the whole time. All of Coba’s rooms have a unique traditional look with ceramic tile floors, wooden headboards, and earthy tones – all within an elegant garden view!
Now why this otherwise stunning resort is last on our list, as Coba does not have a direct beach access route, guest can still get their toes in the sand with the complimentary shuttle service that takes you to the resort’s exclusive stretch of the shore…so not really a big deal. The Riviera Maya Golf Club is also close by.
For water enthusiasts, the two pools provide non-stop fun, while our children played all day in the really amazing kid’s water park with its slides and shallow waters. We really enjoyed our spa experience here, and the highlight was the hydrotherapy session.
