Hard Rock Hotel Cancún
The Hard Rock Hotel Cancún is designed with the needs of the whole family in mind. Hit the beach or pool and enjoy handcrafted drinks from the two pool-side bars or the Bunker Bar, which provides beach service daily. While parents enjoy a day of lounging, kids can go wild at the Kids’ Club with its fully stocked game room, trampoline and age-restricted pool.
When it comes to dining, guests can start their days off with breakfast at Ciao, which transforms into an Italian restaurant for dinner. A fine dining experience is found with the Asian-cuisine dishes at Zen or the Brazilian steakhouse, Ipanema. If you prefer a more casual atmosphere, hit up the buffet at The Market, enjoy traditional Mexico-inspired dishes at Frida or indulge on artisanal pizza at Pizzeto.
All resort accommodations at the Hard Rock Hotel Cancún feature a hydro spa tub, private balcony or terrace and 24-hour room service.

Few views can feel more relaxing than a tropical pool complex transitioning seamlessly into a placid beachfront. Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancún’s shore-hugging layout makes it easy to go from sand to deck and back again. There’s also a swim-up bar in the pool. All 602 rooms are updated, offer free WiFi and large screen TVs, and have breathtaking views of the ocean. The three restaurants on property offer a delicious variety of cuisines—French, Mexican and seafood—while the lobby bar is the perfect place to enjoy a margarita. The unique spa is beautifully designed and boasts the only “10-step hydrotherapy” program in the area. Just steps away from the hotel is a ferry will take you to the Isla de Mujeres in a short half-hour trip—a true cultural gem just off the coast. There’s also a kids’ club with supervised activities for parents looking to keep the young ones happy.

Set in a prime location in the heart of Cancúns ever-popular Hotel Zone, the Fiesta Americana Condesa resort is an excellent choice for families, honeymooners and party-goers alike. This all-inclusive property boasts a number of amenities, including access to a whopping 11 different dining options, a full-service spa and an enormous bi-level swimming pool with a kids swimming area and swim-up bar (not to mention a poolside smoothie station to keep you cool).

Rooms, which have recently undergone a renovation, sport a sharp, modern look. Each comes equipped with a rainfall shower, upscale toiletries, comfortable beds and lovely views of the ocean or the property.

As for those 11 dining options, guests can choose between several cuisines from around the globe, with Asian, Mexican and Italian options on premises. There’s also an all-day international buffet, Kalmia and San Telmo, an upscale steakhouse perfect for that romantic night out.
NIZUC Resort & Spa
Plan your stay with the NIZUC Resort & Spa and expect a quieter alternative to some of Cancún’s more boisterous family resorts. While this luxury property is still very family friendly—there’s a kids club, after all—the low key vibe and location far from many of Cancún’s main tourist attractions mean that the clientele largely consists of couples and small friend groups.
There are plenty of on-site amenities for guests to enjoy. In addition to the wonderful spa and beach and watersports access, guests will find a boutique, beauty salon and world-class fitness center on premises. The rooms don’t disappoint either, with even the lowest-tiered suites offering private outdoor space and amenities like beach bags and soaking tubs. Other optional features and upgrades include private pools, outdoor showers and balconies.
Dining options are impressive, offering tastes from around the globe. There’s excellent Peruvian cuisine at Ni, delectable and authentic Mexican at Ramona, locally-caught seafood in a romantic outdoor setting at La Punta Grille and Lounge, a taste of the Mediterranean at Terra Nostra and upscale Asian at Indochine. For those who can’t decide, all day restaurant Cafe de la Playa offers buffet items and a small menu of a la carte options.
Omni Cancún Hotel & Villas All Inclusive
The beautiful, salmon-colored Omni sits gracefully astride a gorgeous white-sand beach. The main structure fans out on both sides, stepping down like a pyramid to the villas and surrounding the three-tiered pool on three sides. Although the Omni is a well-established resort in Cancún, recent renovations have kept it modern and up to date.
Accommodations—346 in all—are divided between guest rooms and villas. Rooms come in four categories: deluxe rooms, premier rooms, executive suites and presidential suites. The presidential suites, located on the top floor, encompass an enormous 2,335 square feet of floor space and include a full living and dining room, kitchen, guest bathroom, Jacuzzi, balcony and rooftop terrace. The 2,000-square-foot, three-story, three-bedroom villas are close to the pool area. They include a full kitchen, dining room, sunken living room, balcony and jetted tub.
All-inclusive dining at Omni means that all meals in the hotel’s restaurants, as well as room service and unlimited drinks, are included. Seven different restaurants offer guests diverse fare: Mexican, Italian, Asian, Indonesian, American and barbecue; all with a breathtaking view of the sea. Bars include a sushi bar, beach bar, lobby bar and poolside bar.
