This mega-hotel is part of a two-hotel complex, with 1800 rooms, that prides itself on entertainment. The 3.5-pearl property is smack in the middle of Cancun’s hotel zone so those who choose to leave the all-inclusive property will find no shortage of things to do. It’s a family-friendly property, but 14 bars provide plenty of entertainment geared towards adults; those looking for a quiet vacation with the kids may want to look elsewhere, or at least avoid the sometimes raucous party scene at the crowded outdoor pool. Rooms, while clean and comfortable enough, feel like an afterthought at a resort where there is clearly so much thought going into other aspects of the stay. Be prepared for long lines at the 18 on-site restaurants, especially in the high season.
The mega-hotel's distinctive exterior is impressive.
It’s nearly impossible to miss the giant pyramid that acts as the property’s central point and houses more than 600 of the 1800 rooms. One word for this hotel is "massive": from the giant lobby with soaring ceiling and hanging gardens, to the expansive grounds, to the 50 entertainers on staff. Guests are a mix of families, young couples, and groups of friends. It’s a friendly place, and that attitude extends from staff to hotel guests. But it’s not a place for a quiet vacation -- just the opposite.
On a white-sand beach smack in the middle of the Hotel Zone
Situated on one-third of a mile of white-sand beach on one side and Ave. Kukulcan on the other, the hotel is located in Cancun’s main area: the Hotel Zone. As such, the property is surrounded by many other hotels and resorts. Those who choose to leave the hotel will find restaurants, movie theaters, and shopping malls a short walk away. The property is located 25 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from downtown Cancun.
Rooms are minimalist in decor and all come with either a terrace or balcony.
Hotel accommodations come with either one king bed or two double beds and are minimalist and Mexican-influenced in their decor. Each room has a terrace or balcony, hairdryer, mini-fridge, and a large flat-screen TV with cable. The rooms are for the most part clean, but those who are looking for any kind of luxury should look elsewhere: rooms feel almost like an afterthought based on the correct assumption guests would not be spending much time in them anyway.
Non-stop entertainment is what the hotel does best.
With 18 restaurants and 14 bars -- three of them swim-up -- there’s no shortage of places to eat and drink at this all-inclusive property. There’s also plenty of opportunities for fun in the sun, including one of Cancun’s longest pools winding through gardens and lounge areas. The hotel is right on the beach and guests have access to beach chairs and thatched-roof umbrellas that look like tiny tiki huts. There’s also a gym and an on-site nine-hole golf course, a spa, tennis courts, and kids’ activities. But the resort’s pride and joy is its entertainment program and it employs 50 in-house performers including singers, acrobats, rollerblade performers, comedians, and dancers.
