Luxe all-inclusive between the Caribbean Sea and Laguna Nichupte, with four restaurants and a knockout spa
In the heart of Cancún’s hotel zone, the 214-room Sandos Cancún Luxury Experience Resort is on the beachfront between the turquoise Caribbean Sea and vast Laguna Nichupte — a water setting echoed by three split-level infinity pools and a sea-facing Jacuzzi.
Bed & Bath
Guestrooms are uniformly spacious, with a Miami-chic look in cream and crisp white, and modern extras like 32-inch TVs and marble bathrooms. Premium Superior Rooms take advantage of their high-floor position with balconies (in most) and sea or lagoon views. They also offer guests access to the Premium sixth-floor bar, as well as the beach cabanas.
The all-inclusive rate (meals, drinks, room service, most water sports, taxes and gratuities) means revamped dining options in the four restaurants: international fare at Zango, à la carte Caribbean dinners at the alfresco St. Trop, Asian flavors and a dress code at Gaijin, and buzz-worthy molecular gastronomy at Seasons. After dark, live entertainment comes courtesy of local music troupes, and the central Bar One stays busy late into the night. But the aptly named Spa del Mar is where the resort really shines. The 15,000-square-foot complex houses 14 treatment rooms, a cold plunge pool, an outdoor whirlpool, steam rooms and treatments including body wraps of sea plants and marine algae, and specialized massages.
In the Area
Active types will be kept entertained on windsurfing and sailing excursions, or with a morning tennis match — the elevated clay courts are positioned, naturally, to take full advantage of the sparkling Caribbean Sea. Or venture out on a day-trip via ferry to the lovely Isla Mujeres for sun, sand, snorkeling, seafood and cerveza, then return to Cancun’s legendary after-dark scene at dance club, Coco Bongo. For more cultural entertainment, visit the ancient Mayan ruins of Chichen-Itza (the concierge can arrange tours) or head south to the more accessible cliffside ruins in Tulum. Dive lovers can explore the colorful Palancar, Santa Rosa and El Cedral reefs on an excursion to Cozumel.
