Everything was perfect. Staff was very warm, friendly and professional. Entire hotel was clean. I have one suggestion /recommendation. I wish towels and linens would have the fresh scent. I know it’s all fresh but it would have been nicer if it has the fresh scent.

Delicious margaritas

My husband and I had stayed at the Ritz Carlton last year and decided to stay here again because of the fabulous service and food we had previously experienced....we were not disappointed!!

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!

One of the best hotels in Cancun Mexico

Pros: I like everything about this hotel, the staff members are very friendly and always willing to help out.
Cons: ??????? nothing
Location: Everything, the mall,restaurants,grocery store,night clubs, or even the bus stop bus fare is only $10.50 pesos which is .65 cents us currency.
This hotel is beautiful and one of the best hotels in Cancun Mexico. If I go back to Cancun Mexico I will be staying here again.
