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.

Map of Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun

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
