Ritz-Carlton's only Mexican property is a hacienda-style retreat on a 17,000-square-foot beach area—one of the largest in the Hotel Zone. All 365 rooms have private balconies with Caribbean views, and specialized suites—including the Itzy, Bitzy Ritz Kids Rooms (targeted at new parents) and two floors of tony Club Level Rooms (a veritable hotel within the hotel)—allow guests to custom-tailor their experiences. Fantino restaurant is one of the country's top-rated kitchens, and specializes in Mediterranean cuisine; sybarites will love the chef's table—which includes a tasting menu, wine pairings, and even cooking lessons—as well as weekly tequila tastings in the Lobby Bar.


Room to Book:

Club Ocean View rooms have espresso machines, rainforest showe rheads, and access to a private lounge and concierge.

Insider Tip:

To celebrate the beginning of a new era in the Mayan calendar, the hotel has scheduled special excursions to Mayan sites, regional cooking lessons, and interactive programs for kids that will take place throughout 2013.
