Finest Playa Mujeres – Everything a Family Could Ask For
Junior suites with private pools, waterslides, ice cream bars, children’s pool with slides and a playground to kids’ clubs for different ages, a game room, kids’ theater, daycare center, mini-disco, and kids’ spa areas.
At Finest Playa Mujeres, luxury and enjoyment for the whole family is the theme that is well carried through all the resort’s facilities.
The kids’ club was a truly impressive area, with different levels of programming for various age groups. So many kids were taking part in different activities, and the kids’ facilities were so entertaining, I could see why this area would easily be a favorite spot for any child/teen (I kind of wanted to get on the water slides myself!)
During our inspection, the kids’ club staff dramatically appeared aboard a pirate ship and rushed ashore in a play attack on the beach, giving everyone an idea of the types of children-play-interaction they include at the kid’s activities. (We liked that the kid’s clubs differentiated by age groups: (Mini Club for kids 0-6 – for kids under 2 parents are required to attend children under 2 years in the water), Maxi Club for 7-11, and Teen Club for 12-16 years). Each area offers specialized programs and indoor areas that cater to each age range. There are also two pools just for kids – a paddling pool for the infants and a pool with water slides and play structures for older kids as below).
The zipline and climbing wall at the children’s/teen’s play area are truly great, and there are video games to and supervised snorkeling near the beach. There’s also a great kids plaza, the mini spa was a treat for those Mom’s and Dad’s that like their kinds to have a bit of pampering too! Finally a mini theatre with dedicated family fun movies to round out the array of family-centric activities.
The Finest Club Family Suite accommodates a family of five comfortably, with a king bed for the parents and two singles for the kids in their own separate bedroom. Think of these accommodations as more like your own private apartment than a hotel room. The rooms follow a clean, IKEA-like simplicity, with well-appointed bathrooms, and double vanities.
At Finest Playa Mujeres, the family vacations focus on Quality Time for the family as a whole, while also allowing for parents to have some downtime, if they choose.
While guests don’t usually spend a great deal of their vacation in their suites, the rooms were definitely of a size that a family of up to 5 persons, definitely wouldn’t feel cramped. Finest Playa Mujeres junior suites are a minimum 800 sq. ft., and family suites feature a separate bedroom with two beds, giving everyone enough space.
There are rooms with private pools for just your family, and others with swim-up area from the main pool, and a hammock to lounge in. Both were sumptuous and relaxing.
For parents, alone time constitutes the myriad of options for adults while the kids are having a ball. That could be relaxing by the pool or beach bar – with waiter service included – or taking advantage of a wide variety of watersport options. It could be enjoying a premium brand cocktail, or being pampered with a luxurious spa treatment.
Spa Treatments and Day Spa Services offered by the “One Spa” by Finest Playa Mujeres range from simple mani/pedi treatments to full day passes to the full hydrotherapy area where you’ll immerse yourself in tranquility and renewal through a guided experience that harnesses the healing powers of water.
Finest Playa Mujeres offers together-time options like family-friendly spa treatments, live entertainment and group classes as varied as cooking and introductory scuba. There are lovely palapa sun loungers and beds (thatched palm-covered, airy structures as below) for couples or families to enjoy and wile away the day.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Finest Resort and would highly recommend this property to any family looking for a laid-back, upscale stay.
