With so much to do at UNICO 20 87 Riviera Maya, it’s hard to decide how to spend your days! So here’s my top tips on how to spend a romantic 3 days at this gorgeous, new, all-inclusive hotel!
- Spend some time at the pools – all of them!
With three beautiful pools at UNICO 20 87 Riviera Maya, it’s pretty hard to avoid spending some time at the pool! We loved spending mornings at the more relaxed, quiet pool, reading our books with a cup of tea…
Relaxing in these incredibly comfy chairs…
And dipping our toes in the water to cool off!
Before moving round to one of the other two pools which were a bit livelier at the end of the morning, and enjoying a mimosa or two!
We happily spent the rest of the day enjoying activities, like aqua yoga or aerobics, or just dancing to the live music and enjoying some drinks.
I was a big fan of lying in a donut of an afternoon and floating away!
- Relax at the spa (at least once!)
Make the most of your Unlimited Inclusions, and book yourself one of the many couples massages that are on offer.
Or if your partner isn’t a fan of a spa, there are many facials or individual massages available. It’s such a tranquil spot and you’ll find yourself thoroughly relaxed after. But don’t run away after your treatment, as there’s a stunning little spot hidden away….
It’s the most relaxing spot in the entire hotel, so enjoy a cup of chamomile tea lying in you in-pool bed! If you want to keep fit whilst you’re away, make sure you take advantage of the 24-hour gym at UNICO 20 87 Riviera Maya, too!
- Indulge in some ‘me time’ with a beauty treatment or two
Whether you want a little helping hand getting ready for a holiday date night, or you just fancy having your nails done, the beauty salon is a great little holiday treat!
- Book some of the Signature Tours and Adventures!
The Unlimited Inclusions at UNICO 20 87 Riviera Maya doesn’t just extend to the restaurants, bars and spa, but there’s a dedicated set of tours which are included, too! I really loved this idea, and it’s one of the things that most attracted me about the hotel – that we could arrange everything upfront made it feel like a really easy part of our trip. And after having arranged everything myself until this point – I have to admit I was quite looking forward to letting someone do a little bit of the work!
If you’ve not made it to see these beaches yet… Then now is your chance!
You can go swimming with dolphins, book a romantic three course dinner cruise, or take a day trip to Tulum! Or, the trip that we had most looked forward to was the trip to Chichen Itza.
One thing I would say is that not all trips run every day – which we weren’t aware of until we arrived, meaning we couldn’t do some of the excursions that we wanted, so make sure to check with the hotel before you arrive. However, there is a travel agent in the hotel who can easily organise bespoke excursions for you, no matter what you’d like to do!
- Eat your way around UNICO 20 87 Riviera Maya
With four main restaurants open at dinner, as well as two pool side restaurants and 20.87 open at lunch, there are so many options to delight your inner foodie! Our favourite was dinner at Mura House, to enjoy a sushi and sashimi filled date night.
But make sure you also experience guacamole being made right at your table at Cueva Siete, a restaurant currently headed by celebrity chef Christian Bravo.
I might be a real foodie, but I can never resist a good pizza, and with a poolside pizza oven, I couldn’t say no to this delight…

- Enjoy a cocktail on the beach at sunset
With three main bars in the hotel, plus two swim up bars, there are plenty of places to pick up a delicious cocktail and head across one of the bridges out onto the beach and watch the sun set out into the ocean… Sometimes it’s the most simple moments that end up being the most special – nothing more than your favourite company, something to say cheers with and a sunset in a beautiful part of the world.
If you want my recommendation, make it a mud-slide! It’s a delicious cocktail that is an adults chocolate milkshake – very indulgent but oh so good!
- Take a double kayak out to sea!
With watersports available on the beach, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a double kayak out onto the water, to spend some time together just you, paddling out to sea and being able to look back on the hotel. We enjoy a little kayaking as it’s a great way to see the sights from a different view, but if that’s not for you, you can take a pedal boat for two or try your hand at stand up paddle boarding! Fingers crossed your balance is better than mine if you do…!
- Spend some time enjoying your beautiful room…
I think it’s clear from my post all about our room and tour of the hotel, just how much I loved our room.
It’s beautiful decor….
The balcony that I couldn’t get enough of…
And even the fact that we could choose our own scent for our stay. So make the most of it, its little touches and just enjoy these beautiful surroundings!
- Visit Bar Balam for nightly entertainment
Whether it’s games with the other guests, or live music there’s something different on at Bar Balam each night. So settle in for some great cocktails, a little dancing and a night that you’re destined to spending laughing and having fun – and enjoy that beautiful bar!
- Toast to a perfect holiday Say cheers to a being in a gorgeous part of the world, in a beautiful hotel and with someone you love. If that isn’t something to say cheers to, I don’t know what is!
