Firstly, watch out! Because most luxurious resorts can be categorized into family-friendly and adults only. Best to check it out before you travel!

So, what does it mean to be a family-friendly resort in Tulum? It essentially allows children under the age of 18 to stay. But that’s not all, they also provide accommodating facilities and services for all members of the family. Where parents and children can both have a blast!

So, here are our top picks of beach resorts to spend a quality family vacation!


One of the best resorts when it comes to accommodating your family, including your pets! Alaya Tulum is a luxurious eco-resort with treehouse-like bedrooms, delicious foods and reviving wellness activities to join. Highly recommend staying at the enchanting family villa for four, and enjoy family bonding by the beach!

What makes Alaya Tulum great is their amazing staff service, who are there to make sure the whole family is enjoying their time. They are ready 24/7 to serve you with friendly smiles and you can bet they will spoil you!

The eco-chic oasis of La Zebra provides your family with stunning ensuites that have their own private plunge pool. As comfortable and serene as the rooms can be, there is a playground area on the beach where all kids can go hang out! 

What about adults? Not to worry. You can take a moment to enjoy the spa, a place of healing. Prepare to lie on a comfortable bed and surrender to the gentle massages in their “romantic therapy” program designed for couples.

On the other hand, adults-only resorts accept guests above the age of 18. It is the perfect place to spend a romantic getaway with your lover or your best buddies!

For love birds, enjoy an intimate atmosphere and celebrate anniversaries while dining with exquisite cuisine and cocktails. The resort will organize a special evening just for the two of you. 

While for my single readers out there, you guys can definitely destress at the spa, join wellness activities, and connect with others at parties. Who knows you will get to meet a special someone!


The beach Tulum is a row of beachfront rooms overlooking the ocean. Stay at one of their luxury rooms that comes with a private pool and a private rooftop hot tub! How cool is that?!

With The Beach Tulum, you can book an exclusive honeymoon and a private candlelit dinner by the ocean. Where they will happily organize and enhance the atmosphere for your special night. Oh, and their candlelit dinners are extraordinary! Enjoy the exquisite Mexican dishes by the crashing waves and listen to the live music in the background, playing “Just the two of us – Grover Washington, Jr., Bill Withers.”

The beautiful design of Dune Boutique Hotel is so pleasing to our eyes! I love the elegant bedrooms and pools that have an earthy tone of plain white concrete and light-brown wood. Definitely take pictures by the nest at the pool!

Besides that, explore holistic experience and the Dune spa, inspired by ancestral Mayan teachings. Not only does it offers mindfulness to the soul, but Cena Maya also satisfies your appetite, Dune’s finest Mayan cuisine by the ocean!

Catalonia Royal Tulum is different from the rest. It is more of an all inclusive luxury resort, similar to Grand Bahia Principe Akumal, that adopts contemporary Mayan architecture. Because it’s an inclusive resort, there are so many exceptional services they offer guests! Roam through the free infinite pool, delicious buffet or a la carte restaurant, and much more to discover.

It sounds expensive, but the price is almost the same, if not a bit cheaper than the luxurious resorts on Tulum beach. With room prices around 300 USD / 600 MXN per night, you get the most value out of the buck!
