Why we choose The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun

An elegant five-star resort with modern Mexican touches that overlooks the Caribbean

  • All guestrooms boast private balconies or terraces

The Ritz-Carlton Cancun does double duty as an ideal escape for couples and an opulent family-friendly resort. Grown-ups, especially, will appreciate the array of culinary offerings from the only resort in North America with two AAA Five Diamond restaurants. But they’ve also thought of everything when it comes to family fun—and sanity. New moms will love the posh nursery (called “The Itzy, Bitzy Ritz Kids Room”), and kids will soon look forward to the day’s steady lineup of interactive activities and programs.

Club Level is where it’s at. Choose an oceanfront room or suite with balcony.

What you need to know about the hotel

With the sound of waves in the background, the luxe Ritz-Carlton magically adapts to both couples and families

If seaside splendor is what you’re looking for, the Ritz-Carlton Cancun should be at the top of your list. The residential-like 363 rooms and suites all open onto a balcony or terrace, complete with great Caribbean Sea views, and are furnished with hand-crafted ceramic bath fixtures and tech-savvy necessities like iPod docking stations and on-demand videos. Outdoor amenities include two sculpted pools and an oceanfront whirlpool—serviced by a pool valet providing reading materials, refreshments and chilled towels—and a white sandy beach. The lavish Kayantá Spa is a big draw, but what keeps guests coming back is undoubtedly the cuisine. There are seven restaurants and three bars serving Mediterranean delicacies, dry-aged beef, sushi and ceviche and more. Whatever your choice, we’re pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.

Where is it and what's nearby

Nestled along the scenic Mayan coastline, the Ritz-Carlton is a beachy Caribbean paradise

  • Xcaret is a gorgeous ecological park with a swimmable underground river, Mayan ruin, aquarium, botanical garden, butterfly farm and archaeological museum
  • Swim with 50-foot-long whale sharks—the largest fish in the world—or cavort with slightly less intimidating dolphins
  • A guided boat provides a unique view of tropical birds, plants and marine life—plus a snorkeling stop at a huge reef

Cancun, situated in the upper region of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, has developed a “party” reputation in recent years. But it’s also a top destination for luxury travelers who enjoy the phenomenal beaches, historic sites and gourmet food. The impressive Ritz-Carlton Cancun certainly does its best to keep you entertained on site, but it would be a crime to miss the ancient Mayan sites of Tulum, Cobá and Chichén-Itzá, whose ruins provide a peek into a fascinating past. Adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts love Riviera Maya for its snorkeling and scuba diving, sailing and deep-sea fishing, and shoppers rave about venues ranging from upscale malls to the city’s traditional open-air markets.

How to enjoy Cancun

Created in the 1970s as a tourist destination, The Glistening City has been honing its craft ever since – something that can be seen in the attention to detail and high quality of service everywhere

  • Truly a wonder of the world, the Mayan pyramid of Chichén Itzá is well worth a day trip to see
  • Some of the world’s most beautiful golf courses are dotted along the Cancún coastline including links designed by Greg Norman and Jack Nicklaus
  • For luxury shopping try Luxury Avenue. Although the name might not be imaginative, you’ll find plenty of creativity in stores such as Louis Vuitton, Cartier and Burberry

Although beloved of the Spring Break party crowd, there is more to Cancún than overexcited college students nursing hangovers in loud Hawaiian shirts. The party life is good, running on fuel-injection tequila, but it is not the only thing Cancún has to offer. Born as a tourist destination in the 1970s, this purpose built holiday town has never lost sight of the fact that its sole purpose is to provide unforgettable vacations.

Now turning 40, Cancún has mellowed while still taking care of itself. Continuous investment means there are several new resorts and the older ones are kept as fresh and vibrant as when they opened. The gorgeous white sand and clear blue sea are the main draw, of course, but the Mayan ruins and pyramids of the Yucatan peninsula are utterly stunning and worth a day trip or two.

    When to visit Cancun

    The tropical climate makes Cancún appealing all year round, with temperatures hovering around 800F. Fall is the wettest season, but also the quietest.

  • A word from the hotel

    The perfect way to learn a bit of Mexican history is by experiencing a Tequila Tasting at our Lobby Lounge, where our expert Tequilier will guide you through the production process and you will be able to train your palate and recognize the subtle tones of Mexico’s traditional Tequila.
