Best Family-Friendly Mexico Resorts for Your Bucket List
Grand Residences Riviera Cancun
Grand Residences Riviera Cancun is affiliated with The Leading Hotels of the World® collection, a guarantee of excellence and unforgettable luxury vacation experiences.
It wins us over with its spacious suites for large families. The largest accommodations offer three bedrooms, and all suites have kitchenettes or full kitchens, as well as private terraces or balconies. Some also have washing machines and dryers.
Onsite restaurants, a kids’ club for children ages 4 to 12, an activity center with water and land sports equipment, pools, a spa, and a stunning location in Puerto Morelos (near Cancun) round out the appeal for families.
The amenities continue outside of the suite as well. Grand Residences offers a private yacht charter that cruises the sparkling Caribbean waters.
The experiences offered get grander with an opportunity to swim with whale sharks. My favorite unique experience offered by Grand Residences was swimming with the gentle giants of the sea.
Everything is done in grand luxury at Grand Residences.
