Mayan Palace is NOT all inclusive . If you plan to play golf every day and get a massage several times it gets expensive. If you spend most of your money on food it’s a wonderful deal. The resort is 5 resorts together, and there are 17 restaurants of all varieties and prices, plus maybe 10 more bars that serve food.
Its easily a 4 or 4 1/2 star hotel. My husband and I frequently travel around Christmas/New Year’s and our typical vacation choice is to go to an Adults Only All – Inclusive resort . The Grand Mayan is just one of four resorts in the entire Vidanta complex. It is not a cozy resort in that everything is very spread out.

Cancun can be hectic, more people, more traffic, & more of a “city” feel. But at the same time, it has all the conveniences of a city, such as, restaurants, bars, & shopping. I also think the beaches in Cancun are better b/c of the waves, but that’s just my opinion. The Riviera Maya is more laid back.
Will be best of the Mayan Palace – Mayan Palace at Vidanta Riviera Maya Mexico. Yucatan Peninsula. Quintana Roo. Riviera Maya . Playa del Carmen. Playa Paraiso. Playa Paraiso Hotels. Mayan Palace at Vidanta Riviera Maya .

The water in Cancun is prettier than anywhere else on the Riviera Maya , except for Tulum. For a beach with a small child, I’d choose the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral beach , which has the beautiful turquoise water Cancun is known for as well as a calmer beach than some of the other Cancun resorts.
Hotels and accommodation. If you go to Cancun for vacation you will mainly stay at a large all inclusive resort. You will spend most of your vacation there. In Playa Del Carmen you have more options for staying . Playa opens more opportunity for exploration and doing more things than just staying at a resort.
3. Re: Is Riviera Maya a safe destination? No where is perfectly safe but the Mayan Riviera is one of the safest areas of Mexico. Traffic is getting worse (and thus more accidents) and both Cancun and Playa del Carmen have recently had some incidents of gang/cartel violence.
