Great Beach for Family Vacation

The Presidente is a good hotel at the top nothern part of the hotel strip. It's located close to shopping areas, clubs and restaurants. The rooms were a good and clean. We noticed that the hotel is one of olders ones on the strip but it did not lack in service compared to newer hotel on the strip. It was a good fit for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids, 8 and 3). One really nice part of the hotel is it's beach...it was what we wanted for cancun, clear beach, with white soft sand, no waves, it seemed like your own personal pool in the ocean. Our kids enjoyed this very much. The hotel also has two pools, one which is pretty large for families and a smaller one where only adults can enjoy. Our overall experience was pleasent and we had no issue with the hotel and the staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing you need to watch out for are the timeshare and package specialist that want to waste a couple minutes of your time. They can seem very pushy, we just ignored and past them by. Our room had a view to the lagoon and at times, specially in the early morning hours you can here some noise from the clubs accross the lagoon. If you are a deep sleeper then this will not be an issue. We were very satisfied for the price we paid.

Stayed here for Honeymoon...fantastic!!!

My husband and I just stayed there for our honeymoon. We couldn't have been any more pleased with our stay and I don't think we could have picked a better resort to stay at. All of the staff was very helpful and friendly. Unlike the other posts, we did'nt have anyone in the lobby trying to sell us timeshares. We did sit down and book at tour on a sail boat to the Isle of Mujeres via Albatros. It was our favorite part of the trip! I definitely recommend it to anyone visiting! The restaurants at the hotel all had great food, we ate there the majority of the time. The outside bar is FANTASTIC and had a great bartender. I would definitely recommend anyone to go here, we have already started planning a trip back next summer. The room has a mini bar that has everything you would want to drink and to snack on. Prices aren't that bad, but I would suggest going right down the street to the little store and buying your own snacks. Also, I wouldn't exchange my money at the hotel, the exchange rate was pretty low, we found much better exchange rates out in town. The pools were great, the adult pool was even better!! Perfect for honeymooners that don't want to be around screaming children. Also, one of our favorite features of the hotel was the beach side service. They were very helpful & brough you anything and everything that you wanted. We had a great, amazing, wonderful stay & we can't wait to go back to the resort!! It was just about 8-10 minute walk to anywhere you needed to go, the location was fantastic! It was definitely the best beach in cancun. They also have parasailing, jet skis, sail boats, scuba diving, etc at the hotel. We definitely enjoyed ourselves!

Amazing Hotel & Beach, Will Be Back

LOVED IT ALL. I gotta say, this is my 2nd time to the Intercontinental Hotel Cancun and I am just amazed by both the low price but the spectacular amenities that it offers. First off, the beach is SPECTACULAR. There is nothing like it in the Caribbean which is why this was voted #1 Cancun beach several times over. Sugar soft sand, no waves (beach is basically an amazing pool) and the water is crystal clear, shallow, and warm. Second, the VIEW. Get the Club Deluxe room and be prepared to be wowed by the most amazing views of the beach and ocean. Amazingly clear blue water and vast stretches of turquoise tinged reefs 1 mile out. Take the FREE k_ayak from the hotel and boat out for 30 mins, dive in, and just be wowed by the clear splendor. Get the goggles from the Supermarket across the street since they can't give you snorkel goggles when you k_ayak. 3rd, BREAKFAST WAS HUUUGE! Get the Club Deluxe room and breakfast is included for free. I ate so much during b-fast that I couldn't even eat dinner. By late evening, I would go to the Tequila bar, get some national drinks like margaritas and tequila sunrises, have some yummy unlimited finger foods, and call it a day. You will not be disappointed here. I plan on coming back this winter AND June 2010.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you need water or just want to buy snacks, cross the Kulkulcan Blvd. in front of the hotel, head towards the right 1-2 blocks (5 mins on foot) and head on into the" Xpress" supermarket. Lots of food, soda, snacks, and etc. for the whole family.

Cancun Fun

We traveled with our kids. The beach and service were great and we took a 15 minute stroll to restaurants and entertainment in the evenings. We did eat at the Hotel 2 nights and found that it cost slightly less there with our 20% discount than in restaurants. The staff were very helpful and really looked after us.

We took day trips away from the hotel as it was fairly quiet and had a great time but it isn't cheap.

Good Time as Usual

This was our second stay at the IC Cancun and it did not disappoint. Great suite, neat common areas, fantastic beach and super service. The only down side was the musty smell in the room. I know it is common because of the humidity in the area and the age of the hotel but it was a little overwhelming sometimes. We checked out after two nights due to the horrible weather but were charged a one night penalty even after the front desk staff said we wouldn't. Can't blame them though...we stayed two nights out of a 6 night reservation.

The food in the hotel was great but pricey. The hotel has seem to relax on the no outside food policy...we saw pizzas being delivered and Walmart bags being carried in. It's worth a trip to the quickie mart across the street for snacks and drinks.

Great place to stay!

The location was great...the beach beautiful. I thought they could've done a better job at showing what amenities were available. I never saw any non-motorized water toys-kayaks,floats,etc. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was way too pricey.

There's a little plaza across the street with a supermarket-cheap beer/liquor/breakfast items/snacks. And also a couple of nice cafes for some good, cheap, local food.

We're staying here again next year!

This was our first trip to Cancun for our Anniversary. We loved it! After reading about the hotels and locations, it was important that the hotel was facing north vs east of the "hotel zone" This made a difference on the beach, there were no waves, very relaxing, we even fell asleep one evening on the beach chairs w/out a worry. The halls were a bit outdated, but didn't bother me (touch of paint could fix it) The rooms were in great condition, nothing like the halls, clean and cool temp. We're going back again next year and staying at the same hotel.

There is a bus stop in front of and across from the hotel. Its cheaper then a taxi and most tourist places are not far from the hotel, just tell the driver where you want to go and he'll let you know where to get off. There is a little snack store across too. I recommend booking your excursions/tours while in the U.S. We were completely satisfied w/ the shuttle service, snorkeling, submarine ride, and Chichen Itza Tour we booked through a different source. Cheaper then what is offered through the vendors while in Cancun. BTW bring mosquito repellent in case you attract them
