I’m planning trips to Mexico and the Dominican Republic, and would love your suggestions for adult-friendly, all-inclusive resorts. I’m looking for high-end resorts with an abundance of single ladies.

“Single Ladies” Hotels in Mexico:
The Temptation Resort is an adult-only, topless-optional property that caters to 21 and over, uninhibited guests. There is never a dull moment at this all-inclusive resort, which features themed swimming pools and nightly risqué live shows. Fun-seeking singles and couples will find a range of entertainment from provocative games and contests — like the Miss Temptation competition — to sexy Temptation Idol karaoke.
Located in Cancun’s party-friendly Hotel Zone, this Hard Rock attracts plenty of singles and partiers who can afford to stay at an upscale resort. It features five bars, live entertainment, and a gorgeous infinity pool with a swim-up bar. With cool rock-and-roll accents such as music-oriented décor, rental guitars, and large in-room Jacuzzis, this resort encourages mixing and mingling.
The Hard Rock in Puerto Vallarta has a similar vibe to its Cancun sister, with party-centric amenities such as an amphitheater with live entertainment and bar service, and two large pools with swim-up bars. Rooms include double Jacuzzis and built-in liquor dispensers.
It’s a party 24/7 at the Beach Palace – and honestly, Cancun’s Hotel Zone is probably the best place to stay in Mexico if you’re looking for singles. On a large, white-sand beach, the hotel features three pools (with swim-up bars), four bars (each with ocean or lagoon views) and rooms with double Jacuzzis, balconies, and high-tech amenities.
“Single Ladies” Hotels in the Dominican Republic:
Though this resort is also a kid-friendly option, it attracts all types of travelers, including young partiers (which, of course, includes some single ladies!). The party scene doesn’t last until the wee hours of the morning, but it’s nonetheless a great all-inclusive party option for meeting new people: It features one of the best pools in the DR (with swim-up bars), name-brand liquor comes at no extra cost, and the resort just opened an adults-only Colonial Club.
With name-brand liquor included, Jacuzzis in every room, and a giant pool, the Majestic Elegance is one of the top all-inclusives in the DR. It attracts plenty of singles with its nearby topless beach, 11 bars, daily bikini contests, and Elegance Club – the adults-only section that includes private access to the beach, two rooftop bars, and a VIP lounge. There’s a wide range of spots where you can meet single ladies: A boisterous crowd gathers in the large lobby bar, a younger crowd takes over the nightclub, and more low-key live music can be found at the Plaza Bar. There’s also an on-site casino.
