Stylish suites and villas in a secluded spot on the island
Pricey resort fee
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, Mexico'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 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.

Travel + Leisure


Situated at the quiet southern end of the Hotel Zone, Nizuc has seven world-class restaurants, an oceanfront spa, a kids club, and daring modern design throughout the property.

Condé Nast Traveler


The garden villas may be more private, but you’re here for the beach. So book one of the eight penthouse suites, which have outdoor living rooms and Caribbean vistas.



The 29-acre Nizuc Resort & Spa excels in size and service, as well as design and amenities. ... Rooms are large and filled with sunlight, as well as lots of little extras that are part of the all-inclusive rate, including a well-stocked fridge.
