Amazing ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ +

This is THE best hotel. Their slogan is ‘Let Us Stay With You’.....they definately accomplish that! You never want to leave....but when you do, it ‘stays with you’. It’s amazing...the management, staff, spa, flowers, rooms, beach, etc are 2nd to NONE. Highly, highly recommend! So go experience it....you will leave a part of your heart at the Ritz-Carlton, Cancun.

Magnificent in every way!

Pros: Everything! The Staff friendliness and helpfulness was, by far, my favorite part!
Cons: Nothing!
Location: The location is Great! Some of the activities are 45 mins to an hour away from here. Having said that, this would be true for all hotels in Cancun.
I must say that this hotel was the best hotel that I have ever stayed in! I have stayed in many five star hotels and this one simply takes the cake. From the time you pull up on the property you are looked after as if you are the only guest there. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and breathtaking! Having said that, you would expect these things from a Ritz hotel. The one thing that pushed this hotel over the top for me was the staff friendliness and helpfulness! Everyone was so nice and helpful from the people cleaning the rooms all the way up to the concierge, everyone was great! I will say that the Concierge was extremely helpful in helping us set up our daily activities! Having someone familiar with the area and fluent in the language was a humongous help to us seeing as how we do not speak Spanish at all. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Cancun! I will never stay anywhere else when traveling to Cancun!

This hotel is right on the beautiful beach .

Pros: The personal treatment and the luxury.
Cons: Getting through customs and airport is difficult.
Location: It is not too easy to get to affordable eating within walking distance but there is a nice public bus you can take anywhere up and down the main road.
We just wanted some down time in the sun and this was the perfect place. I have always wanted to stay at a Ritz-Carlton and felt that in Mexico it might be affordable. Our room was $215 per night which was a special rate. The food was extremely expensive so they didn't lose money on us. It was our first visit to Cancun and we really loved it. We took a tour to Chichen Itsa which was wonderful. We took the bus to town...good market. Took a cab to the Mayan ruin just south of the hotel. All the people we met were friendly.

Beautiful hotel, wonderful rooms, awesome pool

We just got back from our honeymoon at the Ritz Carlton-Cancun. The room was beautiful with a direct view of the crystal blue ocean.  The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. There is free internet in lounge in the lobby in a beautiful room. The bathroom in the room was completely tiled in marble with a separate room for toilet, a stand up shower and a separate tub. It was a standard room but fairly large with a balcony overlooking both pools and the ocean.  Room service was great, they prepare the food in the room for you.  10/10 would recommend and would stay again.
