Know Before You Go

  • Cancún is hot and humid most of the year. During hurricane season (approximately June through November), intermittent heavy rainfall is likely.
  • Between April and August, Cancún’s beautiful beaches are often full of sargassum, a type of seaweed that washes up on shore and smells like sulfur.
  • Cancún is a tourist hub, so you can expect everyone working at hotels and other tourist venues to speak English.

How We Chose These Hotels

We evaluated dozens of the best all-inclusive hotels in Cancún — drawing on research and our own personal experience — to choose the options on this list. We considered elements such as a property’s quality of service and reputation, design and layout, location, and notable amenities (like number of pools, butler services, kids’ facilities, and beach area). We also evaluated the quality of the inclusive food and drink options, spa facilities, and what other on-site inclusions are available to guests. Overall customer reviews and any accolades earned within recent years were also taken into account.
