    At NIZUC Resort & Spa guests can expect seclusion and luxury on all of this property's 29 acres. Situated on the south end of Cancun's Hotel Zone in Punta Nizuc, this resort offers spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and prime snorkeling along the Mesoamerican Reef. 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 one of the three infinity pools. The relaxing vibes continue at the NIZUC Spa by ESPA, which offers Mayan-influenced treatments. But what really stands out at NIZUC Resort & Spa 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. If you're a member of the I Prefer rewards program, you can cash in or accrue points for choosing to stay here.

    The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun

    #2 in Best Hotels in Cancun
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3415 reviewsTripAdvisor (3415)
    Most lodgers at The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun are wowed by the hotel's upscale atmosphere, especially in its common areas and 365 guest rooms. Decorated in tasteful neutral tones, the guest rooms come equipped with iPod docking stations, deep soaking tubs and furnished balconies or terraces overlooking the Caribbean Sea. 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 served with 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. Located in Cancun's Hotel Zone, this Ritz-Carlton outpost is also part of the Marriott Bonvoy program.

    An adults-only, all-inclusive resort in the northern part of Cancun's Hotel Zone, Le Blanc Spa Resort exudes a modern feel with its sleek architecture and neutral-toned color palette. Each of Le Blanc's suites features a Keurig coffee maker, a two-person whirlpool tub, an LED TV, BVLGARI toiletries and butler service. When booking your room, be sure to request a higher floor and an ocean-facing suite – according to recent visitors, the splurge affords spectacular views and extra quiet that are well worth the nightly rate. If you can tear yourself away from your digs, check out the links on the nearby Moon Palace Cancun's Jack Nicklaus Signature course. Or perhaps you're better suited to a day at BlancSpa, where you can indulge in a massage or hydrotherapy session. You can also catch some rays along the pool or claim a spot on the beach. When hunger sets in, take your pick of Le Blanc's four restaurants or relax in your accommodations and order room service (available 24 hours).

    Perched on 2 miles of chalky white sand along the Playa Mujeres peninsula, this all-inclusive Excellence outpost offers guests gorgeous surroundings. Suites are appointed with Jacuzzi tubs, satellite TVs, pillow menus, stocked minibars and private balconies or patios. But you shouldn't stay cooped up indoors. Outside, the seven swimming pools, 11 bars and long stretches of sand offer ample opportunities for relaxation. As for dining, you'll have 10 venues to choose from, though past visitors suggest dining at Chez Isabelle, citing its tasty French plates, attentive service and romantic atmosphere as particularly memorable. And for an extra dose of R&R, sign up for a replenishing treatment at the Miilé Spa (not covered by the all-inclusive package). If you're craving some more activity, dance lessons, cooking classes and an introductory scuba lesson are all covered in your nightly rate. (Plus, Cancun is roughly 8 miles south.) Just keep in mind this Playa Mujeres retreat is adults-only, so if you're traveling with children, you'll want to book elsewhere.

    Live Aqua Beach Resort Cancún invites you to "Be Yourself" at its adults-only resort situated in the middle of Cancun's Hotel Zone. And it certainly does not lack personalized touches. For sensitive swimmers, Live Aqua's seven pools, including infinity and lap pools, come in varying temperatures, so one of them is sure to be just right.

And as far as dining goes, you'll have your pick of 12 restaurants and bars, which serve everything from Mediterranean fare to traditional Mexican cuisine. When you're ready to turn in for the evening, you'll find an aromatherapy kit, along with a flat-screen TV and a spacious bathtub and shower in your room or suite. Another bonus: Previous guests said the vistas overlooking the Caribbean Sea from the ocean-facing rooms are impressive.

    Situated less than 5 miles north of its sister property, Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun, this resort boasts all of the alluring amenities of its southern sibling with an extra touch of luxury. It may look like an older property from the outside, but each of this resort's 602 suites offers expansive views overlooking the Caribbean Sea, as well as terraces and private sitting areas. The relaxing atmosphere extends into the 40,000-square-foot Gem Spa, where you can enjoy a hydrotherapy treatment or a soak in the Sensations Pool. If it's sunshine you seek, head to the resort's lagoon-inspired pool or its palapa-studded beach, which hugs Caribbean waters and offers vistas of Isla Mujeras. Even dining at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun is an elegant affair; guests are consistently wowed by the French-Mediterranean cuisine served at Le Basilic, as well as the hand-rolled cigars and Mexican fare found at La Joya (along with the resort's four other restaurants and bars). Kids can also join in the fun with supervised activities at the Coral KidZ Club. What's more, because of the hotel's Preferred ties, it allows members of the I Prefer program to earn or redeem points for stays here.

But that's not to say that Moon Palace's only asset is its links. Its 39-room spa beckons to weary travelers, offering deep tissue massages and therapeutic body scrubs.

Young visitors can join in on the fun with the dolphin swim program, the game-filled Wired teen lounge or the supervised Playroom, which offers multiple themed rooms and playgrounds for kids of all interests to enjoy. When the day is over, hunker down in a guest room or suite appointed with a double whirlpool tub, Wi-Fi access, 24-hour room service and an LCD satellite TV. Past guests advise booking a room closer to the lobby on the second or third floor for the best ocean views.

Included in the price of your room is access to two pools, including an Olympic-size pool, the hydrotherapy circuit at the spa, the resort's bicycle center and daily and nightly entertainment.

    The Hard Rock Cancun is the place to stay if you're looking to live it up like a rock star in the middle of Cancun's Hotel Zone. With seven bars and a nightclub on the property, you certainly won't find yourself lacking for entertainment. The rocker attitude continues into this Hard Rock's six restaurants, most of which do not require reservations or a suit jacket, for that matter. Even the rooms seem like they're straight out of "MTV Cribs," with each containing an in-room hydro spa tub, satellite LCD TV, balcony and Hard Rock liquor dispenser. But just because your bedroom can double as a bar doesn't mean that the Hard Rock isn't kid-friendly: Guests enjoy the ability to drop the youngsters off at the Kids before getting pampered with a deep-tissue massage at Rock Spa. You can always hit the lagoon-style pool or beach together later. And if you came to Cancun to take advantage of its flowing fairways, you'll be happy to know that the hotel staff can arrange tee times and lessons at the nearby 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course at the Riviera Cancun Golf Club.

    Finest Playa Mujeres Resort offers stylish digs and enough activities and amenities to keep the young and old entertained. The resort is typically described by travelers as quiet and relaxing, and is a hit with couples and families in particular thanks to the property's all-suite accommodations. Suites are outfitted with Jacuzzis fit for two, stocked minibars, flat-screen TVs and bathrooms with rainfall showerheads. Some guests recommend booking the unique swim-up suite that leads into the resort's main pool, unless privacy is of any concern. One thing's for sure: the resort's entertainment shouldn't be taken for granted. Not only is there live music (a guest favorite), but visitors can also engage in various water sports activities, including paddleboarding, windsurfing, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving. On land, there are dance classes, yoga, tennis, basketball, bikes and even archery. For the younger ones, the resort offers everything from kids clubs for different age groups to kid-friendly spa treatments. Guests say dining won't disappoint either, with quality food consistent in each one of the 12 on-site restaurants.

    Beach Palace, located close to Cancun's Hotel Zone, bills itself as a family vacation destination. That means you probably won't find spring breakers filling up the hotel's pools, swim-up bars or whirlpools. Rather, you'll find contemporary, sleek architecture overlooking the calm waters and golden sands of Nichupte Lagoon – plus plenty of all-inclusive amenities to keep both the little ones entertained and parents relaxed. Drop the youngsters off at the supervised Play Room for a day of face painting and Spanish lessons while you indulge in a Sacred Hot Stone Massage from the Awe Spa. Traveling without kids? You're only 2 miles south of Coco Bongo and Cancun's other legendary nightlife spots. Should you wish to stay on the property grounds, you'll find four bars and four dining establishments on the property, though recent guests had mixed impressions of the cuisine and waitstaff. At the end of the day, retreat to your comfortable accommodations; each guest room and suite comes appointed with a satellite TV, double Jacuzzi, wireless internet access and a minibar fully stocked with beer and juice – all included in the cost of your stay.

Recent guests said this Hyatt is an excellent choice for vacationing families, given all of the kid-friendly amenities, but couples also said this is a great place to reconnect over cocktails, salsa dancing and couples massages. Plus, many recent vacationers described the service throughout the property as stellar, though several mentioned check-in was slow. Another perk, though, is that this resort is under the Hyatt brand, meaning members of the loyalty program can accrue or redeem points while staying here.

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.

    The Royal Cancun gives guests the best of both worlds: city and beach. The property is located a mere 5 miles east of the city center and styled after a traditional Mexican village, giving guests a semblance of authenticity for those uninterested in exploring outside of the resort. What's more, guests can't help but rave about the property's nearby turquoise waters, relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff members. The Royal Cancun also gets high marks for its family-friendly atmosphere and activities, including two pools and a kids club. There is also an on-site spa, a fitness center, as well as tennis, beach volleyball, snorkeling and parasailing. All-suite accommodations are outfitted with full kitchens and dining and living rooms, as well as private terraces. Guests urge light sleepers to stay away from street-side rooms, as these accommodations can get noisy. As far as dining goes, the Royal Cancun offers a mix of Mexican and American fare, from the La Palapa Restaurant, serving regional and international cuisine, to the casual Bartolo's Pizza. Although all-inclusive packages are available, some guests suggest opting out, as the total cost of their vacation came out to be less than the all-inclusive rate.

But you should be able to find some suitable grub at the on-site eateries that serve everything from seafood to traditional Mexican fare – meals at these restaurants are covered by the resort's all-inclusive package rate. Also included in your room fee: 24-hour room service, access to the hotel's pools (including a children's pool), tennis courts, a fitness center and use of leisure equipment like snorkeling gear and bicycles. While many recent visitors enjoyed the resort's amenities, many say the property's enviable location and first-rate service are the key selling points for choosing to stay here.

    Sandos Cancun Luxury Resort's culinary offerings stand out among Cancun's versatile dining options. Guests heartily approve of this all-inclusive resort's five restaurants, pointing to Gaijin as especially memorable for its inventive sushi creations. After you eat, hit the hotel's white sand beach or its three oceanfront infinity pools. But take note: Previous guests said that after 2 p.m., the pool area is cast into shadow by the neighboring Secrets The Vine Cancun. While guests say that there is some entertainment offered on the pool deck, they add that Sandos is not the place for glitzy evening productions or loud nightlife. However, seekers of a quieter stay will enjoy these guest rooms and suites, which feature marble bathrooms, coffee makers, minibars, Wi-Fi access, 32-inch flat-screen TVs and 24-hour room service. What's more, during your stay, you can take advantage of the 15,000-square-foot Spa del Mar, which offers soothing treatments such as hot stone massages and mineral spa therapy body wraps. And should you crave more activity, enjoy windsurfing, kayaking or a deep sea fishing expedition (for an additional fee).

    With an 18-hole championship golf course and a FIFA regulation soccer field, IBEROSTAR Selection Cancún is an ideal choice for active types. But this IBEROSTAR property certainly makes room for relaxation, too: Its large sleek pool area earns high praise from recent travelers, and a beachfront massage from the spa is a great way to wind down after a long day of activities. Kids can also get their daily allotment of exercise in at Lucy's Kids Club or the on-site water park. After working up your appetite, head to IBEROSTAR Selection Cancún's buffet or one of its four a la carte eateries, including the Japanese restaurant Naga Hibachi Japanese and the steakhouse La Parrilla. According to previous guests, the tasty cuisine and excellent service at the hotel's restaurants is superior to luxury competitors in the area. When it's time to retire to your digs, you'll find this resort's guest rooms and suites decorated in a blue and white motif, and equipped with 32-inch LCD TVs, minibars and free Wi-Fi access. For a more luxurious stay, spring for a villa, some of which feature balconies overlooking the ocean.

    The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort & Spa is conveniently situated in Cancun's Hotel Zone (across from La Isla Shopping Village) and filled with amenities and services that cater to guests of all ages. This resort's pool area is home to both an infinity pool with a swim-up bar for grown-ups and a shallow, kid-friendly pool for younger guests. Plus the villa accommodations are large enough to house the whole family and all are equipped with Westin's signature Heavenly Beds and private balconies or patios that offer sweeping views of the sea. Every villa also comes with standard amenities such as flat-screen TVs and high-speed Internet access. Though each villa also features a kitchen or kitchenette, the resort is home to four guest-approved eateries. And when parents want some alone time, they can drop off youngsters (ages 4 to 12) at the Westin Kids Club before indulging in a treatment at the Mayan-inspired Heavenly Spa by Westin. Another perk of bedding down here: Because Westin falls under the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
