    NIZUC Resort & Spa
    Cancun
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2911 reviewsTripAdvisor (2911)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    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.

    Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun

    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.

    Sandos Cancun Luxury Resort

    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).
