All-inclusive resorts are an excellent option for family vacations and multi-generational trips because, if you choose the right one, almost everything is included. This means much less time spent arguing over decisions and much more time relaxing poolside or lounging on a gorgeous beach.
Speaking of beaches did you know Mexico has over 5,800 miles of coastline? It’s also home to some amazing all-inclusive resorts. While most of them service adults-only, Finest Playa Mujeres caters to luxury travelers of all ages. To put this resort to the test we teamed up with luxury family travel blogger, and mother of five, Amber Mamian of Global Munchkins to explore everything this incredible high-end all-inclusive paradise has to offer.
Finest Playa Mujeres is part of the newest brand from The Excellence Collection, a resort group well renowned for its high-end luxurious all-inclusive adults-only properties, Excellence Resorts, and their couples-only all-inclusive boutique properties known as Beloved Hotels. Their newest brand, Finest Resorts, provides a multi-age environment with plenty of activities for families as well as adults-only secluded areas and activities.

Imagine Kids Club
One of the things that sets the Finest Playa Mujeres apart from their competition is their incredible Imagine Kids Club. This is not your average resort kids area, but rather a well-imagined kid utopia with incredible kids activities. There is a waterpark, and tons of toys and games to surprise and delight children ages 3-15 years old.
The Imagine Kids Club is divided into three separate groups—Mini Club for ages 0-2 years old (with parent supervision) or 3-6 years old for drop off care; Maxi Club for ages 7-11 years old; and there is even a club for Teens ages 12-15 years old.
Each club offers unique planned activities throughout the day and fun themed-evening events that will have kids begging to be dropped off. Of course, parents are welcome to stay with their children and enjoy the facilities as well.
Another unique feature offered at Finest Playa Mujeres is the Imagine Lounge an area near the restaurants reserved for children at breakfast and dinner. This is perfect for parents who are looking to enjoy a meal with their child but want the option to drop them off to play if the meal extends or the child gets restless.
If you have a baby, you will enjoy being able to order homemade purees and using the resorts baby amenities. They have baby bottle warmers, cribs, baby bathtubs, sterilizers and more!

Relax and unwind with a massage, facial, scrub, body wrap, and enjoy the rituals. Bring the kids along for the mini-spa with its jungle-inspired ingredients, mini massages, sweet berry-coconut mani-pedis, fruit scrubs and more.
Or drop the kids off at Imagine Kids Club and melt all of your worries away with a rejuvenating couples massage in one of their beautiful treatment rooms complete with a sprinkling of rose petals. After your relaxing massage, you will be treated to glasses of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries, a nice entryway back to reality.
