With its crystal-clear waters and white sands around every corner, it’s easy to get lost in the beauty of Cancún. And what better way to enjoy a relaxing vacation than to stay at one of the premier resorts of this town on the Yucatán shoreline? Read our guide to the best places to stay.
The Ritz-Carlton is known around the world for its reputation built on elegance. In Cancún, it upholds that same world-renowned class and style. Located on the Mayan coastline, the resort promises the most luxurious Caribbean experience possible. The Ritz integrates Mexican culture into all that it offers its guests, from the dining experiences to the spa therapies. With an aesthetic design that incorporates nuances of Maya ruins and contemporary features, you will never want to leave.
With over 602 suites, this all-inclusive resort draws in tourists with its immense size and beautiful appearance. Whether you decide to spend your time at the Gem Spa spanning over 40,000sqft (3,700sqm), or the vast beaches that the resort faces, there is something for people of all ages here. Everything exudes elegance at this Five Diamond Award-winning hotel, and you can opt to finish off a day of sun and sea with a satisfying meal at one of the many on-site restaurants, such as the French-Mediterranean fusion Le Basilic, or the traditional Mexican, La Joya.
Here at Le Blanc, the staff only serve the best of the best to their guests. Leave the kids behind and take a vacation at this adults-only resort, where each and every moment is guaranteed to be pure bliss and romance. Yes, this one might involve just a little extra splurging, but it’s worth every penny. From the impeccable views overlooking the ocean to the expansive rooms with all the finest touches, Le Blanc is swish, suave and, many say, nothing short of perfect.
