    Hyatt Ziva Cancun
    Cancun
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 7141 reviewsTripAdvisor (7141)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking

    Hyatt Ziva Cancun is an all-inclusive resort located on the white-sand beaches of Cancun. Guests who stay here receive complimentary meals at nine eateries and free drinks at seven lounges and bars, including a local microbrewery. There is also a KidZ club, three infinity pools that overlook the Caribbean Sea, snorkeling gear, beach and pool cabanas, beach volleyball courts, a tennis court, live entertainment, a spa and a fitness center with Pilates classes. The 547 rooms and suites start at 483 square feet and feature terraces or balconies, complimentary minibars, free Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TVs, marble bathrooms with separate showers, king-sized beds and an additional queen-sized sofa bed. 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.

    The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort Villas & Spa, Cancun
    Cancun, MX

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 6481 reviewsTripAdvisor (6481)

    Free WiFi

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Golfers rejoice: the all-inclusive Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort boasts one of Cancun's two Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, so you can traverse all 27 holes during your stay. 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. At night, head down to NOIR nightclub, dine at one of 15 restaurants or catch a show in the Amphitheatre. 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.

    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.

    The pool complex is the real standout at the JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa. Guests are consistently wowed by this resort's two outdoor free-form pools, the 14-foot dive pool (with an artificial reef) and the smattering of whirlpools around the property. And previous visitors give the on-site eateries – some of which are shared with the adjacent CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort – a nod of approval for their quality service and varied menu options. Past guests also raved about the property's guest rooms and suites, which feature private balconies that boast ocean views, spacious bathrooms, Wi-Fi access (for a fee) and 49-inch flat-panel TVs. Upgrade to a Club 91 accommodation for views from the resort's top floor, access to the Club 91 Lounge and other exclusive amenities, such as Club lounge access. Even if you don't spring for a Club 91 room, Marriott Bonvoy members will be able to earn or cash in points for perks at this JW Marriott resort.

    The all-inclusive Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun resort located near the midpoint of Cancun's Hotel Zone boasts a family-friendly atmosphere and a wide array of culinary offerings. Parents can embark on a gastronomic journey through each of Mexico's regions at the property's 10 restaurants and an open-air cevicheria, while younger travelers play in the pool or watch movies with new friends at the Fiesta Kids Club and Teens Club. The rooms come furnished with king-sized or double beds, LCD TVs and either garden, lagoon or ocean views. But what you really came for was the sun and splendor, right? Fiesta Americana features plenty of family-centric outdoor activities, like sandcastle building, kite-making and scuba diving. Overall, guests report a satisfactory experience at this resort thanks to its pleasant atmosphere and attentive service. Another bonus of this Fiesta Americana brand property: Its small stature eliminates the need for guests to walk miles to get from one side of the resort to another.

    Not to be confused with its sister property, Hotel Riu Palace Peninsula, Hotel Riu Palace Las Americas sits between the sparkling blue Caribbean and the calm waters of Nichupte Lagoon on the northern bend of Cancun's Hotel Zone. This all-inclusive resort's 350 plus suites are appointed with flat-screen satellite TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and separate living areas. If your room doesn't feature an ocean view (though most afford excellent views), you can always gaze at the sea from a prime spot on the beach. But since past guests claim this RIU property's swath of sand is a little small, you'll want to stake out sandy real estate before it's all occupied. On the beach you'll have access to snorkeling and kayaking equipment, and at the pool you can try out an introductory scuba lesson. When hunger strikes, you can take advantage of 24-hour snacks and five restaurants, all of which are included in your package's cost. However, some guests do lament that the hotel's food lacks variety, so you may want to wander off the property grounds for a few meals.

    Perched atop the narrow islet that constitutes the Hotel Zone, Hotel Riu Palace Peninsula sits a bit farther from the airport than some of Cancun's other all-inclusive resorts. However, the half-hour airport transfer doesn't seem to bother recent travelers, who find this RIU property beautiful and spacious. Its 562 guest rooms feature hydro-massage bathtubs, satellite TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and private balconies or terraces. The food at Hotel Riu's buffets and six a la carte restaurants also receives positive reviews; recent visitors cite the dishes as varied and tasty. The beach, however, is a bit rocky for some previous visitors' tastes; instead, head to one of Hotel Riu's four pools, which are lined with sun loungers.

    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).

Another bonus: Previous guests said the vistas overlooking the Caribbean Sea from the ocean-facing rooms are impressive. Past visitors also praised the gracious resort staff, who they said went above and beyond to cater to guests' needs.

    Between the sandy Caribbean shoreline and the expansive Nichupte Lagoon lies the Omni Cancun Hotel & Villas, an all-inclusive getaway in Cancun's Hotel Zone. Guests approve of this Omni property's 343 spacious guest rooms, suites and villas, all of which come with modern Mexican decor, flat-screen TVs, marble baths and a balcony or patio.

According to recent visitors, the culinary offerings on-site were varied and flavorful, but it's the outstanding customer service that's the show stunner here. For some excitement, head down to one of three pool areas, where you can mingle with other guests in Kuku's Jacuzzi Beach Bar (yes, a bar in a Jacuzzi) or take part in family-oriented games by the childrens pool. When it's time to wind down, leave the kids with the Cancun Kids’ Club program and book a replenishing massage or body treatment at the spa. Plus, Omni Select Guest members can earn and cash in on free night certificates at this outpost.

When hunger sets in, you can fill up on Italian, French or Mexican specialties at one of nine on-site restaurants and cafes.

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2864 reviewsTripAdvisor (2864)
    Free Breakfast

    While almost every property along Cancun's Hotel Zone has its own strip of shoreline, past guests praise this InterContinental resort's north-facing beach, saying the alabaster-hued sand is immaculate and rarely feels crowded. The pretty pool area with its white lounge chairs and blue umbrellas also garners rave reviews, as do the InterContinental Presidente Cancun Resort's three restaurants (though guests say that food and drinks can be a bit expensive). The property's guest rooms and suites come appointed in neutral tones and include satellite TVs, minibars and wireless internet access (for a fee). And for extra relaxation on your vacation, head to the resort's spa, which offers massages and reflexology treatments at its outdoor facilities. Plus, IHG Rewards Club members will enjoy extra perks, along with being able to earn and redeem points for choosing to stay at this spot.

    Family-friendliness is the name of the game at Panama Jack Resorts Cancun, an all-inclusive in Cancun's popular Hotel Zone. Kids and parents alike can enjoy the variety of swimming pools. And when it's time for a little alone time, parents can drop the little ones off at Camp Jack and relax in a sauna at the Aura Spa or hit the nearby golf links. You can always regroup for a meal or drink at one of the resort's 13 restaurants, bars and lounges (though guests do say that the all-inclusive beer selection is limited). When the sun goes down, you can rest your head in one of the property's bright, airy suites, each of which is appointed with a flat-screen TV, marble bathroom, stocked minibar and views of the garden, lagoon or Caribbean Sea.

    Beach Palace

    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.

    Isla Mujeres Palace
    Isla Mujeres
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1521 reviewsTripAdvisor (1521)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    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.

    CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort
    Cancun, MX
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4618 reviewsTripAdvisor (4618)
    Free Parking

    Not to be confused with the adjacent JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa, the 450-room CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort boasts beachfront amenities within reach of all the excitement Cancun's Hotel Zone has to offer. But you may be hard-pressed to find a reason to venture off the property: The CasaMagna Marriott Cancun features eight restaurants, a coffee shop and a lobby bar, and according to previous guests, a memorable breakfast buffet at La Capilla Argentine Steakhouse. Drinks are served at Las Ventanas Lobby Bar until midnight; however, guests say that ordering beverages here can deplete your funds quickly. During the day, pass the time lounging by the heated outdoor pool or along the CasaMagna Beach. When it comes time to bed down for the night, you'll unwind in comfortable digs appointed with pillow-top mattresses, marble bathrooms, minibars, 50-inch flat-screen TVs and wireless internet access (for a fee). Because this resort is part of the Marriott family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn or redeem perks for choosing to stay here.
