MEXICO ACCESSIBLE ALL-INCLUSIVE RESORTS

Playacar Palace Playa del Carmen

This resort will appeal to visitors looking for a very modern and contemporary all-inclusive. It’s a great choice for couples, families, and groups who want amazing food and a luxury experience, as well as varied entertainment without a crazy/party/spring break atmosphere. For families with children, there is a kids’ club and child care on-site.

Playacar Palace has two accessible rooms, one with a king bed and the other with two doubles. There is flat-entry (ocean view) balcony access, space under the bed for a lift, and the beds are 28 inches high. Both bathrooms have a roll-in shower with a stand-alone shower chair, raised toilet, and toilet/shower grab bars; however, the sink is not roll-under. The resort has an accessible shuttle to take guests to neighboring sister properties and ramped beach access. There is no pool lift and no beach wheelchairs on-site; however, these can be rented.

Iberostar Paraiso Maya Playa del Carmen

This resort is part of a sprawling complex that includes three other Iberostar properties. They are showing their age a bit, and would not be considered a luxury property. It’s very family-friendly, has quiet spots and louder party areas, and with shared access to multiple properties for guests, there really is something here for everyone. For families with children, there is a kids’ club and child care on-site.

The Maya resort has five wheelchair accessible rooms; all five have king beds and bathrooms with roll-in showers. All five also connect to a non-accessible room. There is no ocean view, but there is patio access. Beds are 27 inches high and there is space under the bed for a lift. Showers have a stand-alone chair, roll-under sinks, no raised toilet, and toilet/shower grab bars. There are no pool lifts; however, there are multiple zero-entry pools (including a huge wave pool). There is ramped beach access and wooden beach walkways, but no beach wheelchairs on-site; however, these can be rented.

Iberostar Paraiso Beach Playa del Carmen

Considered a more budget-friendly property than neighbor Iberostar Maya, Paraiso Beach has a more luxurious feel to it, with curtain-draped beach loungers and shiny columned walkways. Guests at this all-inclusive resort can use the accessible pools and features over at Maya, although the accessibility at Paraiso’s beach – including designated accessible lounge areas and toilets – is truly phenomenal.

This resort has six accessible rooms, three with one king bed, three with two double beds, and all with roll-in showers and connecting rooms. There is no ocean view, but there is patio access. Beds are 24 inches high and there is space under the bed for a lift. Showers have a fold-down bench, roll-under sinks, no raised toilet, and toilet/shower grab bars. There are no pool lifts; however, there are multiple zero-entry pools (including a huge wave pool at Iberostar Maya). There is ramped beach access and wooden beach walkways, but no beach wheelchairs on-site; however, these can be rented.

Iberostar Cancun

This all-inclusive resort was formerly owned by Hilton, and it shows in its largely ADA compliance. It feels more like a large luxury hotel than a sprawling all-inclusive like in Playa del Carmen, so this may be better for guests not interested in wheeling across a huge property. The decor is very modern and feels more American than Mexican, as a heads up for those looking for a more authentic Mexican ambiance.

The resort has five accessible rooms, all with two queen beds and connecting to regular rooms with a king bed (perfect for families). Beds are 25 inches high and there is space under the bed for a lift. Three rooms have roll-in showers and two have accessible tubs. Showers have a stand-alone chair, no roll-under sinks, no raised toilet, and toilet/shower grab bars. There are no pool lifts, but there is a ramp to the mid-pool bar. There is wide ramped beach access, but no beach wheelchairs on-site; however, these can be rented.

Hard Rock Hotel Cancun

Make no mistake; this is where the all-inclusive party is! The music starts the second you roll through the lobby doors and doesn’t stop until you go home. In standard HRH fashion, the public areas are filled with rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia, fun activities, and bars for days. This was easily the busiest resort of all ten that I visited, but the storm outside was also driving a lot of people indoors who would normally be partying in the pool or on the beach. There are ramps everywhere, with easy access to restaurants, bars, and shops.

The HRH has four well-appointed accessible rooms, two with a king bed and two with two double beds. Beds are on the high side at 29 inches and sit on a platform, so they cannot accommodate lifts or be lowered. Balconies are large with ocean views and flat-entry access. All rooms have a roll-in shower with built-in seating and grab bars, although the shower head is fixed and right above the center of the seat (a shower chair should probably be requested). The bathroom has a roll-under sink and no raised toilet (but has grab bars). There are no pool lifts, but there is ramped beach access; guests can be transferred to a rented beach wheelchair from a small wooden platform at the base of the ramp.

Royal Hideaway Playa del Carmen

This quiet all-inclusive getaway is a beautiful property with named buildings separated by little wooden bridges. The property itself is very accessible, with lovely restaurants, ramped beach access, and even a beach wheelchair on-site. It is very quiet, although it has its own theater and daily entertainment and live music. The big (and only) problem? The toilet room.

Royal Hideaway has four designated accessible rooms, two with one king bed and two with two double beds that are 28 inches high and have space for a lift. There is also ramped patio access. The bathroom has a roll-under sink and a roll-in shower with grab bars and a stand-alone chair. However, the small room that contains the toilet has a door that opens inward, with hardly enough room for an able-bodied person to squeeze through because a towel rack blocks full opening. There are also no grab bars next to the toilet.

It is thanks to Tarita and her staff that our trip to Newfoundland went so smoothly. At the airport we picked up our rental that had hand controls. The hotel that she helped us choose was awesome. We arrived there close to 1:00 am and the staff helped us unload and get up to our room. The next morning when we went downstairs the scooter that she arranged for was at the front desk. We also went on a Whale and Puffin watching boat trip that accommodated wheelchairs. We also attended a Folk Music Festival that Tarita had checked out to ensure was wheelchair accessible. It was so much fun. Many thanks to “Travel For All” for ensuring that our trip went so smoothly.

This is my Travel Agent!  

I know she understands when you say you have a mobility problem. Don't let that stop you from travelling --but you may have to look for new options.

Tarita had everything planned out for us — taxis, sightseeing, hotels, everything.
We're grateful that I found an agency like Travel for All. We really are, because Tarita understands what traveling with a disability is all about.

Great Choice!  

Tarita-we chose the right resort in PV-The Barcelo was just fine and had a nice flat location--Great as don't you know that I would have a flare and could barely walk. The assistance was great and it turned out to satisfy the needs of a 71-year-old and a 25-year-old. Good choice--thanks

Wonderful Person  

My wife and I have dealt with Tarita long before Travel For All came into existence. Over the years she has responded to all of our concerns and requests with no hesitation and always in a timely manner even though it wasn't always necessary. This lady will go out of her way to ensure you are happy and comfortable with your itinerary. We consider her to be one of our friends and always look forward to talking to her. You cannot ask for a better person to ensure you are well looked after.

Dedicated & available!  

I recently travelled from Australia to Canada with my husband. I am dependent on a motorised wheelchair for mobility. Tarita assisted me in the planning of my travel and was available to me the whole time I was travelling. There were many challenges along the way and we would not have had such a successful enjoyable holiday without the hard work and dedication of Travel for All.

Very helpful  

Tarita has been very helpful in working with me in resolving a travel problem with a company that I did a booking with.  She was followed up numerous times.

Impressed with Can-do attitude  

Tarita impresses me with her "can-do" attitude and the creative way she approaches challenges; for instance, her learning from and using her MS to provide emphatic service to others with disabilities who want to travel.  I haven’t a disability myself but I’m discovering that Tarita uses those same can-do, creative skills in other ways.  She and I are in the exploratory stage of a joint business venture, and her ability to come up with out-the-box ideas leaves me scratching my head, especially considering just how doable they are.  Working with her is opening my eyes more and more to possibilities that I’d never have seen otherwise.  In short, she’s a very smart business person.

Incredible product knowledge  

Tarita really enjoys her work and has as incredible amount of product knowledge....She is a graduate of the Princess Academy and uses these skills to close more sales and increase Princess and Cunard revenue production.  She has wonderful 'people" skills and is a great asset to the travel industry!

Wade Menard   
Highly recommended  

My husband and I have had the immense pleasure and good fortune to have worked with Tarita when planning our family vacations.  Not only is Tarita personable and innovative - she consistently provides top quality service - EVERY SINGLE TIME.  There has not been one instance, in all of the years of working with Tarita that we have not experienced great results and a consistently high level of customer service.  We recommend Tarita without hesitation.

Always willing to go the extra mile  

"Tarita has been looking after our travel plans for at least 15 years, and she is a gem; hardworking, pleasant, efficient and willing to give an honest opinion on what she thinks we would need or like on holiday. She is always ready and willing to sort out and improve on any poor decisions we may have made. Over the years we have come to trust and rely on her advice, and she is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure our holidays are just that, a holiday."

Jeremy & Wendy Bryce   
Dedicated & Knowledgeable  

Tarita is a dedicated, knowledgeable Travel Consultant.  Her ability to know what people need and get it for them is awesome.  She has specified training for people travelling with disabilities, I would highly recommend her.

Alana Newton   
Attention to detail!  

Tarita has helped my family and I for some very significant vacation / travel plans. Attention to detail; options provided to make the trip(s) more enjoyable and personable is a strength of Tarita.  I will definitely utilize Tarita's services again and would recommend her and her company to anyone who wants more value and excitement out of their vacation and travel plans.
