Privilege Aluxes Isla Mujeres

Privilege Aluxes Isla Mujeres Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Close to the bustle of downtown Isla Mujeres and along the beautiful sands of Playa Norte, Privilege Aluxes provides not only comfort but also a touch of luxury. The 124 rooms are spacious, feature a modern, minimalist decor -- though at times it may seem too austere -- and come outfitted with amenities such as alarm clock radios, minibars, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi. Many are suites and have impressive ocean views and large, private terraces with their own Jacuzzis. Outside, the grounds are well kept, dotted with tall palm trees and two glistening pools. The shoreline is just steps away and the hotel provides relaxing beach beds shaded by towering palm roofs. There’s an all-inclusive option for guests, and there are three on-site restaurants to choose from.

Gran Caribe Real Cancun

Gran Caribe Real Cancun Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The massive Gran Caribe is a four-pearl all-inclusive resort in Cancun's Hotel Zone with 487 suites. This beachfront option features a great location with bright white sands and clear waters just steps from the room. All rooms here are suites with living areas, balconies or terraces, and updated marble bathrooms. While there are eight on-site restaurants and eight bars, there are common complaints of mediocre food. This family-friendly choice -- with a kids' club, teen club, waterpark, and squash courts -- is good value, but Wi-Fi is not included in some room rates.

Fiesta Americana Villas Cancun

Fiesta Americana Villas Cancun Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Compared to neighboring properties, the 179-room Fiesta Americana is a small hotel that offers a great value for families. It's less party-oriented than most of the Hotel Zone properties, and has a wide range of activities and amenities designed for travelers with kids: a kiddy pool, a playground, a kids’ club; plus large, clean, multi-room suites with at least a kitchenette with a mini-fridge and a microwave. The large pool, the nice beach, the spa, the spacious fitness center with sauna, and the central location are perks as well. But it’s an aging property, so expect a few flaking walls, as well as only the most basic resort amenities for adults.

Bel Air Collection Resort & Spa

Bel Air Collection Resort & Spa Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Overlooking a stunning beach by the southern tip of the Hotel Zone, this adults-only property oozes tranquility. Its serene white and red decor -- with billowy curtains everywhere -- and a somewhat secluded spot far from the booming nightlife set this upscale boutique apart from the mega-resorts located just north of it. The Bel Air Collection has 155 chic, minimalist (if low-frills) rooms, trendy common areas, a wonderful spa, and a gorgeous infinity pool with ocean views. It’s a great pick for a relaxed, romantic getaway.

The Royal Cancun, an All Suites Resort

The Royal Cancun, an All Suites Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Royal Cancun (not to be confused with the Royal In Cancun) is a mid-level hotel with a convenient location and plentiful amenities. Although the decor is fairly generic, each of the 288 suites offers fully stocked kitchens, dining tables, updated furniture, and spacious balconies. Perks here include a kids' center for the little ones, a large outdoor pool, and a vast, clean, white-sand beach. There's decent dining on-site, but many visitors choose to stock their kitchens at the market instead. With lovely landscaping, these low-rise units are a good alternative to some of the megaresorts in the area.

Barcelo Tucancun Beach - All-Inclusive

Barcelo Tucancun Beach - All-Inclusive Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 334-room all-inclusive Barcelo Tucancun Beach may not be the most luxurious or stunning hotel in Cancun, but it offers clean facilities, average buffets, convenient in-room amenities, and a pretty beach -- all at one of the more affordable rates in the area. Although the main pool can get a bit crowded and rowdy, several of the smaller pools offer some peace. Rooms (and the entire hotel, for that matter) need updates; there are old tube TVs, dated bedspreads and furnishings, and out-of-place iron gates separating the bathroom area. On the upside, they're clean and spacious, with mini-fridges and coffeemakers, and the sea view rooms have great views of the Caribbean's cerulean waters.

Barcelo Costa Cancun - All-Inclusive

Barcelo Costa Cancun - All-Inclusive Rating: 3.5 Pearls

In comparison with other Hotel Zone properties, the 357-room all-inclusive Barcelo Costa features an above-average beach, decent-size pool, and pretty grounds with some palms and tropical plants. Barcelo Costa is smaller than many other mammoth all-inclusive resorts just outside Cancun, and offers guests an entertainment-centered atmosphere that can feel tired and tacky at times. For instance, giant pirate ship attractions perch right beside the resort's tiny slice of beach, and loud music pumps throughout the pool area at night. On the upside, though, rooms are spacious, airy, and bright, many with flat-screen TVs and massive marble showers.

Hotel Playa La Media Luna

Hotel Playa La Media Luna Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Hotel Playa La Media Luna sits at the northern tip of Isla Mujeres along Half Moon Beach. The property’s seclusion offers a tranquil atmosphere, but it’s also not far from the more lively downtown area. The highlights here are the private terraces with hammocks, great views, and fresh ocean breezes. Though the 18 rooms are a bit outdated and plainly decorated, they still retain a hint of tropical charm and are cozy enough for the affordable price. A simple continental breakfast is included for all rooms, while the pricier units -- such as the bungalows -- have a fully equipped kitchenette, Jacuzzi, living room, and dining area. There’s no restaurant on-site, and although there’s a poolside bar, it rarely seems to be open. While there isn't anything spectacular about the hotel itself, its beachfront location is excellent.

Mayafair Design Hotel

Mayafair Design Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Mayafair Design Hotel features an odd combination of decor. Housed in what appears to be a former, cheesy, Mayan-themed strip mall -- complete with non-working escalators -- the hotel now has modern touches like cool, new-age furniture in the lobby and rooms inspired by designers or fashion icons. Rooms are spacious and sleek with sexy open bathrooms. Some rooms offer large Jacuzzi tubs but others only have tube TVs and lack mini-fridges. There are few amenities at this hotel -- just one above ground Jacuzzi -- but it is within walking distance of the beach. This hotel is geared toward gay men and offers inexpensive rates, but visitors looking for more amenities can find other hotel options nearby at similar rates.

Holiday Inn Cancun Arenas

Holiday Inn Cancun Arenas Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The first thing potential guests should know about this mid-range, all-inclusive-optional Holiday Inn is that it's not in the heart of the Hotel Zone. It's actually located at the very northern end, and requires a bus or taxi ride to get to local shops and restaurants (at least there are bus stops right next to the hotel). The 214 rooms here are minimalistic -- all-white with pops of color (either blue, green, or red -- just one color) -- but clean and spacious, and have private balconies overlooking either the pool area or the ocean. The suites have well-equipped kitchenettes, which can come in handy for families who don't want to pay the all-inclusive rate. Standard resort amenities exist here -- two pools and a fitness center, though no full spa (just massages available) -- but the beach is full of seaweed, making swimming a less-than-pleasant experience. Still, this hotel is a good value, and families may especially enjoy it -- there are good kids' activities, and kids eat free in the three restaurants. Business travelers might also appreciate the free and reliable Wi-Fi.
