Hotels in Cancun Mexico

Hotels in Cancun Mexico offer incredible accommodations in a city known for its white sand beaches, turquoise clear waters and lively entertainment. Perhaps one of the most beloved spring break destinations out there, Cancun can make for an outstanding getaway no matter the time of year. Apart from its amazing beaches and electric nightlife, the area is home to some of the most intriguing Mayan ruins in the world, such as those found at Chichén Itzá and Tulum, each of which are, give or take, a 2-hour drive. As you may see below, hotels in Cancun Mexico are some of the most exciting out there to consider. Before we get you to our list of hotels in Cancun Mexico, let’s take a look at some background information on the city to help you along the way.

Cancun, with a population of around 800,00 people, is located on the Yucatán Peninsula. A relatively new city, the area was home to the Mayans, who originally referred to the area as Nizuc, which means “promontory” or “point of grass”. It wasn’t until 1970, when the area had at the time a total population of three caretakers of a coconut plantation, that resort development  began. Playa Blanca, which became a Blue Bay hotel, and eventually Temptation Resort, was the first hotel to be built. The first nine hotels were financed by the Mexican government, as investors were reluctant to take risks in the area. From there, tourism became the driving force in what would become a major resort city.

Cancun benefits from a tropical climate, with hot temperatures year-round, while peak precipitation occurs in October. Major attractions include La Isla Shopping Village, Isla Mujeres island, Coco Bongo night club, Chichén Itzá, Puerto Juárez, Playa Tortugas beach, Luxury Avenue boutique mall and The City Nightclub. A spring break epicenter, Cancun absorbs about fifteen percent of international spring break travel. Apart from spring break, the city’s white sand beaches are great for sunbathing, people watching and snorkeling. All the best Mexican foods like fajitas, tacos, burritos, carnitas, empanadas, guacamole and seafood can be had and are a nice remedy to those late night revelries. Popular drinks to keep you cool and help take the edge off are of course margaritas and mojitos, as well as a large list of other refreshing spirits like daiquiris, piña coladas and the banana monkey, which is a chilled concoction of coffee liquor, banana, chocolate and coconut. Now that we have a little background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in Cancun Mexico that are sure to light up your eyes and day.

  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. I think I need to visit someday and for this reason, I will have to bookmark this post. I really fell in love with the  Sandos Cancun Lifestyle Resort when I saw that beach beside it. Thanks for giving good information here. Cheers!

  6. Wow, all terrific places!  I want to visit Cancun someday, and all of these look like great suggestions for a truly relaxing and memorable vacation.

  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!

  15. Planning a trip to Mexico after this Covid-19 Pandemic and Cancun is absolutely the city I want to visit, thanks for your sharing on the places to stay in the city. I have look for other reviews, but they are not as thorough as yours. You did a great job by offering this information to the active traveler.  Thanks again!

  16. I’ve never been to Cancun but now I sure as hell feel like visiting! So many of these places look absolutely stunning. The colours, the photos, everything makes me want to go. You’ve offered so much useful information into what can be found in these hotels and where they are situated that it’s really easy to tell my favourite ones apart. Thanks a lot for this post!

  17. The post gives the choice of an array of hotels and apartments with some great images and a lot of information about the accommodation and the area surrounding each property.  The information regarding the facilities in each of the different types of accommodation was really helpful and well presented. 

    Another nice part of this post was the fact that there were such a wide range of prices to choose from.  I think Mexico is still generally considered pretty good value and Cancun is a well established resort now.  Some of those pools and terraces look so inviting. 

    Nice to see working links to different restaurants, bars and nightlife venues and also to the many trips that are on offer in the resort.  I would imagine that for most of us going to a resort for the first time, having this sort of information in advance is a great advantage.  It helps in the planning of what to do while in resort. 

    After reading this post I definitely want to go to Cancun.
