Swim up rooms in Cancun

1. Azul Beach Resort Riviera Cancun

Azul Beach Resort is one of the smaller all-inclusive properties on the Riviera Maya which is one of the reasons we love it. You feel a sense of genuine warmth and welcomeness the moment you arrive at Azul Beach and check in to your swim up room. Located just south of Cancun, in Puerto Morelos, the resort sits on a gorgeous stretch of beach. There’s an adults-only pool with a swim up bar, a kid’s pool with water features, and a lazy river.

The swim up suites are large and comfortable and the service you’ll receive at this resort is unparalleled when it comes to all-inclusives. Azul Beach has done an incredible job making couples, families, and friend groups all feel comfortable here.

In particular, families with young kids will find the Family Swim Up Suites completely stocked upon arrival with everything you need for little ones on a vacation. Cribs, strollers, diaper pails, changing pads, and even miniature Azul Beach bathrobes will make families feel right at home.

TRS Coral is located north of Cancun on the white sand beaches of Playa Blanca. This upscale resort offers some of the most amazing swim up suites anywhere on the Yucatan Peninsula. Their Junior Suite Swim Up with patio swing chairs and cabana bed can be nabbed for less than $400 a night. In addition, they have a range of different swim up rooms available depending on your needs.

This two-bedroom suite provides a veranda that looks out over the turquoise waters with a wildly impressive wrap-around pool. All of TRS Coral’s swim up suites in Cancun include luxury personalized services like a butler and 24-hour in-suite room service.
