Best Affordable Beach Resorts
Bel Air Hotel
The 156-room Bel Air is an oasis of calm away from the crowds of central Cancún. The minimalist design sets it apart from other area hotels: gauzy curtains line the lobby, and whitewashed rooms are filled with fire engine–red chairs. Outside, the white-sand beach is punctuated by crimson loungers and white umbrellas.
