Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • On a white-sand beach close to Puerto Morelos
  • Large suites with elegant decor, marble floors, and high-tech amenities
  • 5 a la carte restaurants (one of them adults-only), a café, and a buffet; no reservations required
  • 5 bars and lounges with nightly entertainment
  • Nice spa with 7 treatment rooms, a beauty salon, and a hydrotherapy circuit
  • Huge pool with a swim-up bar, plus an adults-only pool for Preferred Club guests
  • Fitness center, 2 tennis courts, yoga classes, free non-motorized watersports
  • Kids Club and Teens Club with supervised activities daily
  • No wristbands

Cons

  • Far from tourist attractions
  • Fee for Wi-Fi (unless you are a Preferred Club guest)
  • No public Jacuzzis

Bottom Line

The 496-room Now Sapphire is a sprawling complex directly on a white-sand beach outside Puerto Morelos. The property features the standard Cancun resort amenities -- free non-motorized water sports, a wide array of dining options, a pleasant spa with various treatment options, and an impressive pool. Suites are massive (starting at 520 square feet) and feature elegant, contemporary decor, marble floors, and up-to-date amenities such as flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. However, it’s far from tourist attractions, and Wi-Fi fees can leave guests feeling nickel-and-dimed.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On a nice beach outside Puerto Morelos, a 25-minute drive south from Cancun International Airport

The Now Sapphire is located on a white-sand beach outside Puerto Morelos, a small, laid-back town known for its beaches and reefs. There’s not much in the immediate neighborhood, except other resorts and beautiful beaches, but this somewhat remote location offers quiet nights and a romantic ambiance.

Puerto Morelos is located halfway between booming Cancun and trendy Playa del Carmen. The area serves as a perfect compromise for anyone looking for Cancun's stunning beaches, sans the hordes of tourists, and is close to wonderful snorkeling spots, impressive reefs, and great cenotes (inland freshwater pools).

  • 25-minute drive to Cancun International Airport
  • 11-minute drive to Puerto Morelos' shopping and dining
  • 35-minute drive to Playa del Carmen, a laid-back and bustling town with great shopping and a well-heeled crowd
  • 35-minute drive to downtown Cancun (Ciudad Cancun)
  • 75-minute drive to the Mayan ruins at Tulum
  • 3-hour drive to Chichen Itza Mayan ruins
