Cancun Hotel Guide
There are more than 150 hotels throughout Cancún—most on the small barrier island known as the hotel zone, or Zona Hotelera—so it won't be difficult to find accommodations that suit your needs and budget. Rates range from dirt cheap to extravagant, but most of the price ranges offer suitable accommodations. Professional and leisure travelers alike recommend the downtown Grand Royal Lagoon, a two-star hotel, which offers cheap clean rooms and nice amenities.
Luxurious recommendations include the Riu Caribe and the ME Cancún, both located on the southern end of the Kukulcán. Recent visitors say both properties offer fantastic ocean views and family-friendly atmospheres. Those looking to save some dinero might enjoy the Soberanis Hostel. Travel writers note that this hotel's downtown location and budget rates make it a popular stay for Spring Breakers.
Reasonably priced hotels can also be found in nearby towns along the Riviera Maya, including the towns of Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
