  1. Awesome post! My family and I had a very great time at Casa Tortugas! The hotel is so lovely, with excelent location and also an amazing staff! The rooms are very big and comfortable, with everything we needed. The location is also great, near restaurants, a grocery store and the beach, and just a few minutes by bus from other good places. The view from the pool is really wonderful. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a calm and an amazing place to stay!

  2. Hi,

    These places look amazing. I spent some time in the Riviera de Maya a few years ago. We stayed in a big resort, but we always said that if we ever went back we would go self catered and be more independent to enjoy the are in a different way. I think one of these places would be perfect. I like the look of the Hard Rock Hotel to give us all the options.

  3. I really like the le blanc spa that you have mentioned here and to me, it seems to be one of the brwsr places I could possibly stay here in meixo if I ever visit. Though it is not really too far from the states but then, I just visited Cuba some years back and I’m not looking forward to exploring anywhere near for now. Thanks so much for doing this much details about the best hotels in Mexico. I might try to give it consideration sometime soon or suggest to anyone visiting. Thankd

  4. It’s actually the first time I’m hearing about Cancun Mexico. I wouldn’t have believed that such beautiful aces can be in Mexico. In the movies, Mexico is always depicted as a ghetto.

Thanks for giving good information here. Cheers!

  10. What absolutely gorgeous rentals! I don’t know that I would ever want to leave the resort! 
    I really love how detailed you were about each resort you talked about, I feel like I know exactly what I can expect before even calling the resort. It was very helpful to know which perks and accommodations came with each suit, and also what was near by. I found it helpful that you included EVERYTHING that was near by, including convenience stores! You never know when you need to pop in for a quick item. 

    I also really liked the range in prices, it made it easier for me to narrow down which resort has the amenities I am looking for at a cost I’m happy to pay. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this post!

  11. WOW love your site man, i didnt realise anything like this was inside my budget range, but this has opened my eyes some of these are ridiculously cheap when split with a few friends and the places are stunning why would you not. i am literally going to chat with a few friends now to see if thety are keen haha . Do you only do Cancun ones?

    1. Hi thehealthytradie and thanks for sharing with your friends. Not only Cancun ones no and you can find the others on the site 🙂

  12. Hello, 

    Excellent review of Cancun, Mexico hotels and resorts.

    A few years ago we ( my husband and I) decided to fly to Cancun. We stayed at Villa del Palmar resort. It is a beautiful resort, and I thought that it is the best resort in Cancun. Your post changed my mind; there are a lot of charming resorts and hotels. I love how detailed you were about each of them, and what kind of accommodations and convenience stores are around. Also, I liked the prices.

    Thank you again for an excellent article. We will use your advice for the next trip to Cancun, Mexico.

  13. Good topic. Cancun is a very popular destination and this article provides good information about places to stay. It’s helpful to know what amenities the hotel offers. It’s also great to know what’s nearby and how far it is to certain destinations. A couple of the listings seem to be missing some of that info though. It would be nice to see more pictures to help decide where you may want to stay. Overall, very nice.

  14. What beautiful places!  I have been to Mexico a few times, and have always searched out lodgings that were quite reasonable.  Places that cost as much as these have been for the most part beyond my budget.

    However, will be doing another trip to Mexico soon, and now feel that I can afford to be a bit more extravagant.  Actually,I really like the idea of traveling with a group, because then you can divide up the cost and make it more affordable.  

    You have provided a good service by offering this information to the prospective traveler.  Thanks!
