This bustling Downtown district, built around the gorgeous Parque de las Palapas, is brimming with exciting craft stores and delectable taco stalls, and is the thrilling heart of Old Cancun. Shop 'til you drop at the Plaza Las Americas, or absorb the sumptuous local culture at the vibrant open-air Market 28. For an authentic Cancun night out, head to Yaxchilan Avenue, where the locals party into the early hours.
With the soft golden sand of the sprawling Hotel Zone beach between your toes and the soothing Caribbean Sea breeze in your hair, you'll get why Cancun is one of the world's great playgrounds. Dance the night away down Boulevard Kukulcan to everything from pulsating R&B to flamboyant local salsa, or snorkel in the breathtaking reefs out to sea. If you can drag yourself from the beach, that is.
A crisp, white enclave of tranquil coastline surrounded by rippling seas, Isla Mujeres is a relaxing tonic to the bustle of Cancun. The Underwater Sculpture Museum, where eerily detailed stone figures line the seabed, is a must for divers and art-lovers alike, while the impressive Mayan monuments at Punta Sur will delight history-buffs. And to experience the breathtaking local wildlife, take a dolphin tour off Playa Norte beach.
The idyllic beach neighborhood of Playa Mujeres, lined with all-inclusive resort hotels and surrounded by baby-blue seas, is a soothing paradise just 20 minutes from Downtown Cancun. Have fun on dry land with 18 holes at the sumptuous Greg Norman-designed Playa Mujeres Golf Course, which boasts some of the most pristine greens and incredible views in Mexico, or pop down to Lopez Portillo Avenue for the freshest local seafood.
This charming residential district is a relaxing retreat from the 24/7 buzz of Downtown Cancun. Delve deep into the rich history of Mexico at the El Meco Ruins, where Mayan stone pyramids still stand, and then catch a ferry over to Isla Mujeres island from the Puerto Juarez Pier. Or simply stroll down the pier, stare out across the shimmering Caribbean Sea and let all your troubles melt away.

The hotel overall was great. I had adjoining rooms and the one with the king bed was fine. I can see how some one may complain about the one with the double beds since there is no room in between the two. It wasn't an issue for me. I didnt spend that much time in the room.
Food was good. A little bland but nothing a little salt can't fix.
I had to ask for towels but when I did they were prompt about it and no questions asked.
The stay was enjoyable and relaxing. Be open minded and flexible and you won't be disappointed.
"Easy walk from main clubs and bars"

The hotel is simple, has what you need. We were in Tower B and told that this was the recently renovated building. The bathroom did look renovated except for the mirror, which had huge spots on it - like they forgot to change it once they finished. The lighting was not great in the bathroom (for makeup) and there were no mirrors in the actual room - but this was the case at the next hotel I stayed in at Playa del Carmen too, so maybe thats a Mexico thing. The shower was hot, water pressure was great, we had a problem with the AC and someone was up in 20 minutes to fix it (and did fix it). You get a discount at the breakfast buffet by the beach - $20 total for me and my boyfriend. The weekend we went the beach chairs were not swarmed and we were able to get beach chairs with an umbrella at 11am. We did not do the AI package, and I would not recommend it - there are great places to eat and drink for cheap within blocks in literally every direction. We paid about $180/night but would not pay more than $150 a night to stay here again.

I was there for one night on business. Check in was quick and easy. When got to room it was not cleaned yes, but after I called, they were there in 3 minutes to clean. Lunch and dinner were great. Prices were reasonable. Excellent mattress and got good night sleep. Would stay again.
"We cannot wait to return to this hotel!"

Upon arrival we were taken by the amazing view, the beautiful and artistic lobby and the helpfulness of the staff. We stayed in apt 201, a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment, with dining room & kitchen, balcony with a whirlpool (that part was a surprise to us!). Our view was breathtaking and we enjoyed every minute of that suite. We took a bus (R2) to WalMart and stocked up on groceries for the week and ate half our meals in our suite. Our family of 4 enjoyed the pool, playing billiards in the lobby and the friendliness of the staff. I highly recommend this hotel! *** Note about Cancun in general, everyone everywhere will try to upsell you, or sell you a tour, or something else you don't need. I asked the front desk manager where / how to get to La Isla Mall (which is a 5-8 minute walk south from the hotel) and he claimed it would take me 35 minutes to get there and that I should take a bus. We speak spanish fluently, so no language barrier. Another time we asked how to get to walmart and suddenly we were being instructed on how to go to Isla Mujeres and which tour company to use (???). do your homework before you come, we used 2 different books to guide us along the way. There's an amazing cute taco stand just outside our hotel called Tacun - GO THERE! it's great, authentic food. Enjoy the Baccara!
