The Riviera Maya first placed in the competitive category of ’50 Best Resorts in the World’. Placing at #49, the UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya was described as “An all-inclusive, adults-only resort set along the Riveria Maya, the food, spa treatments and stellar views are the main attractions here. Rooms and suites come with perks like private swim-up pools, outdoor spa tubs and panoramic views, while the airy interiors feature wooden accents, hand-crafted furniture, and works made by local artists. Guests can opt for their own personal Anfitrión instead of a personal butler service: They will help arrange everything from a pillow menu request to an insider’s guide to the local food scene. Alternatively, take your pick from the five onsite restaurants—spanning Mediterranean, Mexican, Japanese and European cuisines—overseen by former Top Chef contestant Chef Christian Bravo.”
