With over 28,000 rooms, Cancún is easily Mexico's largest resort. Mexico's rich cultural traditions and a dedication to excellence combine in what is recognized as one of the world's highest service standards in the world. Virtually every notable hotel brand is represented. Known chains, the very best of luxury properties, boutique hotels - ranging from the very affordable to the very chic.

The majority of Cancun's hotels are located in the Hotel Zone, a boomerang shaped spit of white sand bordered by effervescent Caribbean sea on one side and the lush green mangroves of the tranquil Nichupte lagoon on the other. Most properties feature ocean, lagoon and garden views and are priced accordingly. To get a better idea of the location of each hotel, check out our interactive map.

Less expensive properties are found Downtown and though lower in price, remain strong on amenities and services. Many of the downtown hotels offer free beach shuttles; most are 10 minutes from the beach with drop offs and pick ups throughout any sunworshipper's day.
