Hotel Paradisus Cancun

Last updated: 25 January, 2023

With over 500 rooms housed in towering, mock-Mayan multi-storey skyscraper pyramids (including one with hanging gardens) Paradisus is far from understated. But no hotel in Cancun has better facilities or a choicer beach location (on a vast stretch of sand right in the centre of the hotel zone).

The hotel boasts four lagoon-style pools, a gym, tennis courts, a magnificent spa (with a hydrotherapy area and children’s beauty salon) a vast Kids and Baby’s Club with cinema and slide area, and a nine-hole, par three golf course.

There’s an adults-only club with its own private pool and lounge area and the restaurant menu was created by 12 Michelin-star Spanish chef Martin Berasategui Olazabal.

Surrounding area

The hotel sits right in the centre of the hotel zone where the sand is broadest and the sea at its most turquoise. There are alternative restaurants on the doorstep. The best bars and clubs are a 10-minute cab ride north.
