The Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres & Riviera Maya both have handicapped rooms and are family friendly.

Mexico doesn’t have an ADA so finding legitimate accessibility a challenge. And to compound that, you will see things that were designed with accessibility in mind either broken or in disrepair. Things like ramps that are extremely steep, doors with knobs, etc. You really need to keep an open mind traveling to Mexico. I will say that the hotel zone in general is pretty accessible, but you may find that when you cross a street you may find a ramp on one side and square curb on the other.

Beachscape Kin Ha would be my first pic. Only reserve a ground level as they have no elevators. The resort is very small, on the water with a beach and good pool. It’s not one of the most luxurious places but it’s definitely a great place for mobility and wheelchair users. The land is flat there.

Beachscape does have ground floor rooms, but there are several transitions that would make it difficult to navigate if someone is in a wheelchair. The openings are also very narrow. Getting to the restaurant on the beach would also be very difficult. It is one of the oldest resorts built in the 70s. It is not very accessible friendly.

Riu resorts seem to have a decent effort to accommodate those with disabilities.

There are probably facebook groups and people doing blogs that can help you find your perfect resort. Many years ago, when it was first opened, the RIU Playacar hosted an accessible convention (early 2000's). I understand that its since been renovated so you'd have to check it out. Things change.

The Royal Resorts are accessible. They rent Amigo scooters in their shop and have wheelchairs available for use. Elevators are available to all floors, ramps to the beach. Pool areas areas and bathrooms are accessible. When you book request an accessible villa as they have roll in showers and lower counters etc. And, yes, I have used a wheelchair there post surgery. While the ramps are steep, they are available and not scary.
