Official star rating:
This plush beachfront resort sits on the best stretch of beach in Cancun.
All rooms come with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, separate lounges and a large ocean-view balcony. Interiors come in cool, contemporary, creams and light greys offsetting those turquoise ocean views, with soft fitted carpets and thick glazed French Windows that allow the ocean breeze in yet keep all noise and wind out. Beds are draped with high tread count Egyptian cotton, bathrooms have walk-in rain showers, tubs and Asprey soaps.
Facilities are first class – with Mediterranean dining under chandeliers, steaks with piano jazz or food by candlelight under palm-thatch in a private pavilion right on the beach.
The resort sits on the plushest patch of Cancun’s long beach – where the sand is fluffiest and the sea at its most turquoise. But there are waves.
There are plenty of restaurants and bars on the doorstep and Cancun’s shopping zone and thumping clubs are a ten-minute cab ride.
