Located on a cliff just steps from downtown shopping and nightlife, no other Cabo all-inclusive resort offers such convenient location and breathtaking views.

I have been to many adult only all inclusive hotels in Mexico and the Caribbean.  I think the food is very good at all of them so I thought I would highlight a few of my favorite ala carte restaurants at some of the finest adult only hotels in the world.

First on my list is, Mia Casa located at the El Dorado Seaside Suites in the Riviera Maya of Mexico. The El Dorado Seaside was voted by Forbes as one of the most romantic hotels in the world and this is their most romantic restaurant. Mia Casa offers traditional Italian cuisine and has a huge wine list.  The ambiance and the service level puts Mia Casa at the very top of my list.

A strong second on my list is Asiana located at the Royal in Playa Del Carmen.  Asiana offers contemporary gourmet Asian fusion cuisine. The decor is very stylish and it is very romantic. The food is wonderful and the service is even better. The Chef’s Plate comes in a close second at this same hotel.  Nothing better then a good dinner at the hotel and drinks on 5th Avenue in Playa Del Carmen.

In a real strong third is the Lobster House at the Excellence Playa Mujeres in Playa Mujeres/Cancun,   Mexico. It is an open-air thatch-roof palapa restaurant that bridges the main pool. It is open for breakfast and lunch but for dinner it is a whole new experience. The glow of soft lanterns and the reflection of the pool turn the restaurant into a wonderful atmosphere for all things lobster.

Last on my list is the lunch buffet at the Iberostar Grand Paraiso in the Riviera Maya of Mexico. I had to put it last since it is a buffet, but I have my reasons for putting it on my list. They have a grill specialty every day. It might be lobster, steaks or chicken but it is served hot off the grill ! You can order ala carte and be served or make your way through the buffet line. If you do not see what you need simply ask the waiter and it can be prepared for you. The waiters in the buffet are so attentive to your every need. It is located right next to the pool and also offers outside seating. The Iberostar Grand is #1 in the world do their ala carte restaurants are just superb. The Surf and Turk at the Grand is legendary but you will eat more meals at the buffet and you will not be disappointed.

I could of added another 20 or more to this list.  As I mentioned earlier all these hotels feature amazing dining options.  This was just a short list of a few of my favorites at some of the top hotels in Cancun/Riviera Maya.
