What to expect when staying at UNICO 20°87°

After taking a two hour or longer flight and clearing Customs and Immigration upon arriving in Mexico, the last thing you want to do is spend more time getting to your resort. But a stay at UNICO 20°87° Hotel Riviera Maya is worth the hour and a half drive from Cancun International Airport.

This beautiful adults-only, all-inclusive resort in Mexico seamlessly incorporates local, Mexican culture and contemporary luxury.

A vacation at this resort is a one-of-a-kind experience. Here’s what you can expect from a stay at UNICO 20°87°…

The Property 

Upon entering UNICO 20°87° you’ll immediately feel more relaxed – the resort pumps out a wonderful aromatherapy scent that’s not overpowering. You’ll also notice the gorgeous décor in the lobby and extending throughout the property. The interiors incorporate art reflecting the local style and culture while the exterior flaunts manicured lawns, fountains and water features, as well as two sleek, black pools – La Unica pool and 20.87 pool and swim-up bar – in the center of the property.

While there is a beach, it’s not the highlight of UNICO 20°87°. The pools are the primary area where guests hang out.  Various activities, including aqua spinning, floating poker, water basketball and more, occur here throughout the day.

If you’re interested in a more mellow and relaxed vibe, head over to La Escondida pool, which is dubbed the quiet pool. You won’t hear music or find games here, but this pool does have its own swim-up bar. Food and beverage service is available around all three pool areas as well as cabañas for rent.


Of UNICO 20°87°’s 448 rooms, a whopping 90% have ocean views! Guests can choose from eight different room categories, including swim-up rooms and two bedroom suites.

The rooms are luxurious and spacious. Even the bathroom is laid out to allow for ease of movement and access for couples. There’s a separate toilet and rain shower, two sinks, and the entire bathroom can be closed off or remain open with a sliding door and sliding window.

Guests also have their own terrace with lounging area and an outdoor soaking tub big enough for two.

The in-room amenities are off the charts. One fun feature is the aromatherapy. Upon arrival the staff presents you with candle scents to choose from. The scent you select is the scent for your room!

What is a local host? All guests have access to a local host who provides an added level of personalized service and helps take your UNICO experience to the next level.
