Northern Hotel Zone

Modern Hotel NYX Cancun is at the northern end of the Hotel Zone, a few steps from the Caribbean Sea and across the street from Nichupte Lagoon. You’re a 10-minute drive from the El Rey Ruins, and a 20-minute drive from Cancun city center.

Sea life and shopping

At Interactive Aquarium, a 10-minute walk from the hotel, you can swim with dolphins, pet rays, and get up close with other sea creatures. If you prefer to shop, the high-end stores inside the Luxury Avenue shopping center can be reached by car in 3 minutes.

2 pools, 2 restaurants

The infinity pool and adjacent bar are lively spots to grab a cocktail and soak up the sea view, while a second pool provides a quieter atmosphere. There are also views of the sea and beach at the 2 restaurants, where you can sample Mexican and international dishes.

Book somewhere else!
The stay was very uncomfortable! There was no air conditioning, no shuttle, no cable only cable channel that worked was TNT. Breakfast was mediocre. Do yourself a favor and book another more reputable hotel. Will definitely NOT stay here again!!!

If we only knew.
We were very pleasently suprised by this hotel. We stayed at a plush resort in Riveara Maya for 7 days before coming to NYX. That expensive place had substandard beaches where you could not get into the Ocean without heavy water shoes because of the coral and it was certainly at your own risk because you were walking on rocks. Plus the views stunk. Luckily we scheduled to stay one extra day and picked NYX at the hotel. The hotel was very nice and the beach was beauitiful. Because of NYX, it gave our trip meaning because we could actually play in the water and see the Ocean from our room. I just wish that we were here for all 8 days instead of only one.

Average for the money...
check in was terrible, it’s was check in time and just person was there... 30 mins to check in... and you can’t pay with cash at the bars or restaurants... the credit card only policy is a joke... However the breakfast was good.

Great place to sleep.
We stayed here because we wanted a nice place to lay our heads after 2 days of excursions. It was great for what it was.
