Honeymoon at Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Mexico

Thirty-five miles from Cancun International Airport, this all-suite resort opened in 2008, and it’s already received AAA’s Five Diamond designation. The resort bills itself as family friendly, but the 90-suite Executive Grand Class Section on the beach is dedicated to guests age 12 and up, so an infant’s caterwauling won’t disrupt your honeymoon. Don’t mind the kids? There are 206-suites tucked in the jungle and 195 family friendly beachfront suites in the Ambassador section.

Amenities 76,640-square-foot spa with 40 treatment suites, 24-hour butler service, 24-hour in-suite dining, non-motorized water sports, pool and beach concierge service, fitness center
