About Gran Caribe Resort All Inclusive - Rebranded as PANAMA JACK

All-inclusive and family-friendly seafront Cancun resort

Right on the beach

Gran Caribe Resort All Inclusive - Rebranded as PANAMA JACK sits directly on a stretch of white-sand beach, overlooking the azure waters of the Caribbean. If you can tear yourself away from the sand, it's a 5-minute drive or 20-minute stroll to the 150 stores of La Isla Shopping Village.

Tequila museum nearby

Within the La Isla mall, the Interactive Aquarium is home to piranhas, sea lions, and sharks, and offers the opportunity to swim with dolphins. Also a 5-minute drive away is the Tequila Herradura Sensorial Museum, where you can learn about Mexico's signature drink, with tastings.

Pools, spa, water park

You can pick from 7 restaurants, including Mexican-style Maria's, and 8 bars. Kids can have fun at the Oki Splash® water park, while you take a dip in the 2 outdoor pools, work out in the fitness center, or head to SPAreal for the sauna, steam bath, and outdoor hot tub.

Balconies, free WiFi

The 470 suites are decorated in neutral colors and feature private balconies or terraces with lagoon, garden, or sea views. WiFi is included in the all-inclusive plans, and other handy amenities include 55-inch plasma TVs with cable channels, coffeemakers, and minibars.

I would definitely recommend this hotel
I booked a Junior Suite for 2 weeks with their all-inclusive plan. Upgrade to ocean view was definitely worth it! Room was spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable. Housekeeping staff was friendly and responsive. Property is a little bit old, but well maintained. Hotel is right on the beach and fairly close to the downtown area and within walking distance to La Isla Dorada Mall. It’s centrally located to all that Cancun has to offer and there’s a bus stop right across the street. Great service and good food, with lots of options, and always arranged in a beautiful way. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. A special thanks to Laura and Elizabeth from the Panama Coffee CO. for preparing excellent cappuccinos and for their genuine smiles. Thumbs up to Lupe, manager of the Deck 74 Restaurant. His team was great, particularly Ana Rosa, who was very professional, attentive, friendly, always smiling and super, super fast! Many, many thanks also to the Ventanas’ team. Louis, Benjamin and Faustino who definitely exceeded our expectations! Good entertainment every night. Live performances were offered every night at the lobby bar. I really enjoyed the Mariachi band and the vibrant Mayan show. Overall we had a great stay. We had some minor issues with Wi-Fi in our room, but they were addressed right away. And we were offered complimentary chocolate-covered strawberries for the inconvenience. Very nice touch! I would recommend this hotel and would definitely book it again.

Probably won't return
Overall, beach was beautiful, pool was fun, people were friendly. That said, the experience could have been better. (1) Construction going on in the lobby. So noisy. I usually like sitting in lobbies in hotels/resorts, but didn't have that luxury during my visit. (2) No Asian food and only American, Italian, Mexican food. If you're Asian and need to eat Asian food, this resort isn't the place for you. At least having some instant noodle bowls in 24hr snack area would have helped. (3) On one occasion, I had to wait ten minutes at a restaurant for someone to come and ask me if I wanted a drink. The waiter only came because I waited for ten minutes and asked. If I didn't, I don't know if they ever would have come. They did seem all busy. (4) Some travel agency trying to market their products in the lobby. They approach you and say they will give me a welcome kit and take me to a room, and after some chit chat reveal their identity(travel agency) and ask if I would come back the next day and listen to 90 more minutes about their great benefits. This travel agency seems to be part of the resort's business - otherwise how would they have the list of people staying? I felt like having wasted my time. Again, nothing against the hard working friendly people at the hotel, but I feel that my experience could have been better if these things were taken care of.
