JW Marriott Cancun

Last updated: 13 November, 2022

There are two Marriotts in Cancun, situated right next to each other in the plushest part of the hotel zone, and sharing amenities. The JW is the smarter of the two with a superior spa, larger rooms and a long, sinuous infinity pool right behind the beach.

Rooms sit in a single, large hotel block sitting over the plushest section of Cancun’s 24 mile-long Zona Hotelera beach. Decor feels a little chain-hotel anonymous – contemporary light palettes – off-whites and taupes, functional fitted wardrobes and workstations, but it’s really all about the view – all rooms have balconies overlooking the ocean.

The hotel has a suite of excellent restaurants including the award-winning Italian-Mexican Gustino, an additional adults-only pool with swim-up bar and one of Cancun’s best spas.

Surrounding area

The ocean turquoises and blues in front of the JWM are the best in Cancun, the beach is long and white and washed by body-surfable waves’ restaurants and bars sit on the doorstep (and the resort shares those of the neighbouring Marriott Cancun).

The main shopping centres and nightlife block are a 10-minute cab (or bus) ride.
