Hotels in Cancún

Many hotels in Cancun are housed in the Zona Hotelera, a long strip of hotels that runs between the lagoon and the sea. Most hotels in this area are large, luxury resorts, with pools, restaurants, bars, spas and all sorts of on-site entertainment. However, there are also smaller options for those who prefer more private surroundings. The Ritz Carlton is one of the best Cancun hotels, with its gorgeous beachfront setting, heated outdoor pools, tennis courts and seven restaurants, including a sushi and ceviche bar, and the Culinary Center, where guests can take cooking lessons using local ingredients.

To get off the beaten path, head to the Fairmont Mayakoba, located in nearby Playa del Carmen. The resort boasts lagoon and jungle view “casitas” and suites, an 18-hole golf course, and the Willow Stream Spa. The Fairmont is also a popular setting for beach weddings. The ME Cancun is a sprawling all-inclusive resort, featuring modern architecture and state-of-the-art amenities like rain showers and 24-hour room service. At the Beach Club, you can find comfy day beds to lounge all day on.
