Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Excellent location on a wide, clean, white-sand beach with cabana beds
  • Nice rooms with flat-screen TVs, large balconies, and updated decor
  • Great amenities including water sports, kids' entertainment, and 9-hole golf course
  • A total of 3 clean swimming pools and an additional children's pool
  • 5 full restaurants, 2 light-service food stands, and 3 bars (including a swim-up)
  • Impressive spa offers outdoor treatment rooms and variety of services
  • Spacious, modern fitness center
  • On-site market with coffee, light snacks, and drinks

Cons

  • Crowded during peak seasons
  • Many ocean views obstructed by the hotel itself (other rooms have less impressive lagoon views)
  • Some balconies and rooms lack privacy
  • Marble floors in rooms can get slippery when wet
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Paradisus is an all-inclusive Cancun megaresort with 678 clean and updated rooms. Decor is bright and contemporary, though the gray marble floors can get slippery when wet. Quality of the balconies is inconsistent -- some are spacious with great ocean views, while others have obstructed views or little privacy. The pool area is well-designed and massive enough to handle big crowds. The remarkably clean beach is a big plus, as are the impressive spa and large fitness center. While this resort has great amenities such as a 9-hole golf course and plenty of water sports, there is a fee for Wi-Fi and the sprawling property can get crowded.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On a gorgeous white-sand beach in the middle of the Hotel Zone

The Paradisus Cancun sits on a stunning white-sand beach with turquoise waters in the heart of the hopping Hotel Zone. The property is close to shops, restaurants, and tourist-oriented nightlife.

Mostly all-inclusive, self-contained resorts make up the Hotel Zone. Visitors don't come to this part of Cancun for the sights -- there are none, other than the popular beaches and the nightlife. The Hotel Zone is one long stretch of white sand lined with hotels and businesses that cater exclusively to tourists. The locals live and play in the more culture-rich downtown area (known as Ciudad Cancun), which is a short drive away.

  • 27-minute drive to Cancun International Airport
  • 33-minute drive to Downtown Cancun
  • 43-minute drive to Puerto Morelos, with quiet beaches and great snorkeling spots
  • 1-hour drive to Playa del Carmen, a laid-back and bustling town with great shopping, and a well-heeled crowd
  • 1-hour-40 minute drive to Tulum ruins
  • 2-hour-30-minute drive to Coba ruins
  • 2-hour-45-minute drive to Chichen Itza ruins
