Beachfront bliss in the heart of Cancún’s hotel zone, with a sprawling free-form pool, two restaurants and a sports center
In the center of Cancún’s hotel zone, Emporio Hotel & Suites offers a true fly-and-flop beach vacation, just 15 minutes from the international airport. The guestrooms wrap around a central outdoor swimming pool to make the most of the sparkling Caribbean Sea views, while the two restaurants, gym and grocery are set back in the main building. The accommodations are uniformly spacious, with two Double beds and private balconies in even the smallest Superior Rooms. Junior Suites have all the family-friendly amenities, including a separate living room with two Murphy beds, a full kitchen and a dining room. All are decked out with flat-screen TVs and DVD players, microwave ovens, coffeemakers and minibars. The hotel’s signature restaurant, Condimento, serves international and Mexican favorites for breakfast, lunch and dinner; there’s also Bacoli Trattoria for classic Italian fare. Plus, the pool bar dishes up simple snacks and fruity cocktails throughout the day. Beyond the beach and pool, guests can borrow snorkeling equipment, volleyballs and board games at the sports center, and there’s an in-house travel agency for more adventurous tours and day trips.
In the Area
If you can pull yourself away from the powdery beach, the resort’s travel agents can arrange trips to snorkel or scuba-dive along the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System or at the Museo Subacuatico de Arte, an underwater sculpture park. And you can explore real pyramids at the nearby ruins of Chichen Itza and Tulum. For golfers, the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón course, at the Mayakoba Resort, provides 18 challenging holes between limestone canals and the sea.
