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.
How to Get There
We had an 80 minute deep tissue massage by the beach earlier today. Clara and Jesus were our massage therapists, a phenomena talent therpiests, they showed thier deep understanding of humans' body.
Not only a great deal but also in comparison to what I had in Asia or in North America...so far Clara and Jesus are the best.
Very decent hotel with outstanding customer service from Pablo at the front desk. A/C is ecological, therefore it shuts off constantly, causing unessesary and unwanted heat in the room. Watch out for very slippery floors around the pool.
This place is an excellent place to stay in Cancun if its your first time here. The resort is relatively closer to the airport and have a few small shops right outside as well as a rental car place. Staff was great and everyone had a cheerful face. Rooms were clean and neat but they have sensors for the A/c which turns off if no one is present in the room which could be a bummer if you would like your room to be cold when coming in from the beach or the pool. Food at the buffet had a wide variety but was subpar. On the other hand the Italian restaurant on property had some tasty selections with top notch service for a romantic dinner date. Again cheers to the staff who work hard to keep this place clean and neat!
