Property is very nice, a bit dated and old. If you like older Hotels you will love this one. Staff is not overly friendly. Food is very expensive, so do all inclusive if you can.

Huge hotel with lots of amenities. When I booked the hotel i requested a queen size bed that I didn't get. I requested also a suite with ocean view. I got the suite with a view but the ocean was too far I only could see a bit of it. Other than that, buffet was excellent! lot of options and everything ...

Pretty place, bring your own media. Tv in Spanish with only Spanish subtitles. WiFi weak. Food good for convenience, but I would recommend outsourcing. ..great taco place a bit of a walk but worth it.

Best time to take a vacation to Cancun

If you find a great deal and can snag a few days off, pack a carry-on and boogie down to Cancun any time. Weather-wise, Cancun has a monopoly on warm sunshine year round. June through November is hurricane season, which peaks in September and October.

You'll find flocks of sun-worshippers at Christmas and Easter, and spring break crowds each March. It's wet and hot from May to November, but prices dip and crowds are few. Cancun regulars swear by January and February for ideal weather.

Insider tips for Cancun travel

Market 23

Practice your Spanish … and your haggling skills. Pottery, blankets, hats, jewelry, clothing and local crafts mix with fresh meat, fish shops and fruit stands at this very local market. Bring cash, preferably pesos. 

El Café

Local journalists relax over breakfast or lunch on the simple terrace at this hideout behind city hall. The coffee is good and strong and the dinner menu is authentic.


Grab a taxi for a taste of Paris in residential Cancun. The small, family-owned restaurant in a converted house oozes romance over an array of French classics. A tri-lingual staff provides formal service. Dress to the nines and reserve a seat on the terrace.

Mayan ruins in the city

Kids love to climb the remains of a small Mayan settlement at the El Rey ruins, oblivious to its age, dating back to 10th century A.D. Bring fruit and feed the hundreds of sunning iguanas. El Meco is quiet, naturally shaded and tranquil enough for a picnic among the 14 structures or at nearby Isla Blanca, a local beach. Both are a reasonable drive from the Hotel Zone.

Neighborhood watering holes with live music

Slip into Roots Jazz Club for late-night beats or El Capucino for live local reggae on Margaritas near Azucenas. Despite its location in Hotel Plaza Kokai, Bar Bohemio El Camarote is a cozy haunt that feels lesser-known with its small stage and decent bands.
