AI with a Tropical Feel?

I love the jungle atmosphere and tropical feel of the Iberostar Tucan/Quetzal. Because of the Quetzal fire, I am searching for another resort. Most of the all-inclusive resorts are very modern or contemporary looking. I haven't found one that seems "tropical" or has as much as the lush vegetation and atmosphere as the Tucan/Quetzal.

Any suggestions for an all inclusive that I may like?

I also like how close Tucan/Quetzal was to Playa Del Carmen but I wouldn't mind exploring another town.

Valentin Imperial Maya fits the bill with lots of lush, tropical landscaping - but it's adult only and I don't know if that will work for you.

Another good one is Grand Palladium (any of the 4 resorts within, or the adult only Royal) although it isn't very close to any town, although Akumal is a fairly short taxi ride away.

Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar/Beach also has a lush feel to it but is not close to Playa del Carmen.

Catalonia Royal Tulum (AI and adults only) is very lush and tropical... set amid the mangroves and the ocean and onsite cenotes; caotis, iguanas, parrots and monkeys (on my head, pic taken there) and one of the best beaches in the area!

A great alternative for an AI adults only that doesn't cater to just honeymooners and couples, plenty of dining options (buffet and a la carte) and a casual dress code vs long pants at dinner... nice pool areas, jacuzzis, air conditioned gym and spa, lobby bar, sports bar and evening entertainment.
