An outpost of baronial elegance in the heart of Cancun’s hotel zone, with residential-style beachfront and oceanview rooms and activities galore

The Lowdown

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the Ritz-Carlton Cancun brings the hotel company’s Old World ambiance to the main drag of the Mexican resort town. Fronting white-sand beaches and turquoise seas, the resort makes the most of its location by including terraces and balconies on the oceanview guest rooms, which also have plush feather beds and lavish marble bathrooms. The property is tricked out with luxury resort amenities, including seven dining venues, a serious cooking school, a tennis center, a large spa, two swimming pools, an oceanfront whirlpool and private beach palapas.

In the Area

In addition to traditional snorkeling and scuba diving around reefs, Cancun is home to the unusual MUSA Underwater Museum of submerged sculpture. Getting to the museum requires a 30-minute boat ride to Isla Mujeres from a pier that’s five minutes from the resort. The Cancun Jungle Tour at Aquaworld is a guided tour through dense mangrove forests with an optional stop for snorkeling. Rather engage in retail therapy? The Kukulcan Plaza mall is within walking distance of the Ritz-Carlton and has more than 250 shops, including Montblanc, Fendi and Cartier.

From the minute you are greeted at the airport by the driver to the day he takes you back you will want for nothing. The Ritz Club room team treated us like we owned the hotel. Angel and the front desk team took care of everything we needed. Luis and the rest of the team ensured we had the best food and drink. The house keeping team never missed a step. The pool and beach team set us up with everything we asked for and the seaweed was well managed. We enjoyed the treats at the beach and the outstanding Mojito class at the pool bar. Take the Heart of the House tour with Chef Octavio and you will gain a wonderful appreciation of what it takes to offer seamless service. I am ready to rebook ASAP.

This property is beautiful! It definitely exceeded our expectations. Every staff member was professional, friendly, and accommodating. This was one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at in Cancun. I absolutely loved the club and would recommend anyone looking to stay there to book a room that includes the club access. I definitely recommend this property and will definitely return.

We couldn’t ask for a better place to vacation. This is an old school beach club. Service is impeccable. Food and drink quality is top-notch. There isn’t one thing I would change. I am a loyal Ritz-Carlton person and this hotel exemplifies Ladies and Gentlemen serving Ladies and Gentlemen. Thanks to everyone at the resort. You are truly the best.
