    $43.10 Nightly Resort Fee
    Most lodgers who stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun are wowed by the hotel's upscale atmosphere, especially in its common areas and 365 guest rooms and suites. Decorated in tasteful neutral tones, each accommodation comes equipped with an iPod docking station, a bathtub and separate rain shower, a flat-screen TV and a furnished balcony or terrace overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Plus, the daily resort fee covers additional perks like in-room Wi-Fi access. The Ritz's signature elegance is also evident in the property's six dining establishments: Whether it's a grand dining room or a private canopied casita on the beach, guests are in for a decadent experience. And though some guests bemoan the steep price tags that accompany their meals, many say you should splurge for at least one meal here because the food is worth it. But The Ritz really shows its worth on the pool deck, with two pools, an oceanfront whirlpool and pool valet services. More active guests can strap on some scuba gear and take to the Caribbean Sea or practice their backhand with a pro at the Tennis Center. While most enjoyed their stays, multiple previous guests complained about poor service and high fees, saying that this property doesn't deliver a typical Ritz-Carlton experience. Nevertheless, if you choose to stay, you'll be able to use points here as the property is part of the Marriott Bonvoy rewards program.

The 274 villas and suites all feature Nespresso coffee makers, along with minibars and private balconies or terraces with garden or ocean views. Private Pool Villas even feature infinity pools with waterfalls. Sun-seekers can drop the children off at Winik's Kids Club for activities like cooking lessons and ceramic painting before heading to the resort's two private beaches or five pools. The relaxing vibes continue at the ESPA-affiliated spa, which offers Mayan-influenced treatments. But what really stands out at this Preferred-affiliated resort is the food. You can choose from six restaurants that serve gourmet cuisine, but if you're looking for a memorable experience, consider reserving a night at the chef's table or arranging a private dinner on the beach. From the delectable cuisine to the private atmosphere, recent visitors couldn't be more complimentary of the hotel, describing the overall experience as simply incredible. However, some lament the daily $45 resort fee. If you're a member of the I Prefer Hotel Rewards program, you can cash in accrued points for free night certificates to cover the cost of your accommodation.

    With an air of tropical romance and intimate surroundings, this couples-only resort on the southwestern coast of Isla Mujeres especially appeals to those in pursuit of a honeymoon or destination wedding retreat. What Isla Mujeres Palace lacks in size guests say it makes up for in personalized service. And while there are only 62 of them, each guest room comes with a private balcony, double Jacuzzi, minibar and flat-screen LCD TV. Your meals are covered by the all-inclusive cost, but there is only one restaurant, Azul. (Recent visitors, though, say the food is varied and delicious, so you probably won't get bored). But while the beach and pool are lovely, some guests can start to go a little stir-crazy without the constant excitement that Cancun's mainland hotels bring. However, if it's quiet seclusion you want, then Isla Mujeres Palace can deliver.

    Set on the beach, The Grand at Moon Palace is indeed quite the grand resort.

Step outside your room to experience all the amenities this hotel has to offer. You can go bowling, splash around in one of four pools (including the visitor-favorite adults-only pool), hit the water park, unwind in the spa and work out in the gym. The Grand at Moon Palace also hosts nightly entertainment, such as variety shows, live music, kid-themed nights and magic performances. The all-inclusive rates cover 24-hour in-room dining and access to numerous restaurants. According to previous travelers, some standout spots include the Grand Buffet, Jade (serving Asian fare) and Cusco (dishing out Peruvian small plates). The resort also houses several bars, a nightclub and a coffee shop. While the property has a plethora of amenities and options, its sprawling size means it could take some time to walk to the pool or to dinner, depending on where your room is located. You'll find The Grand at Moon Palace about 7 miles southeast of the Cancun airport.
