Located in Cancun’s hotel zone, this Mediterranean-style resort is set in tropical gardens close by Nichipte Lagoon and boasts its own marina with yacht hire and water sports facilities. It’s a small complex with the lagoon restricting beach access, but guests are welcome to enjoy the beach at its sister resort, Sunset Royal.
The resort is old-style, and offers Lagoon Suites plus one or two-bedroomed suites with private terraces or balconies. The accommodations sleep between two and eight guests, with the Lagoon suites sleeping up-to four and including a kitchenette equipped with a microwave and utensils. Cable TV, air-conditioning and a telephone are provided.
The one-bedroomed suites sleep up to six and offer two bathrooms, some of which come with a Jacuzzi bath, and the rooms have balconies or terraces with lagoon or garden views. Kitchenettes offer similar facilities to those in the Lagoon suites, as do the living room and bedroom. The two-bedroomed timeshare apartment is the largest, and sleeps up to eight, making it suitable for larger families and friends travelling in a small group.
According to Tripadvisor reviews, the staff here are the highlight of everyone’s stay for their friendliness, cheerfulness and sheer energy. Everyone including the entertainment staff do their best to ensure guests are happy, and deal with small problems with a smile. The small spa is a popular attraction, as is the Italian restaurant.
On-site activities centre around the swimming pool, and there are yoga classes, sailing and windsurfing, cooking and Spanish lessons, free bicycle use, and dinner shows on weekends. The resort’s exclusive yacht club allows luxury yacht rentals for cruising the azure Caribbean and visiting offshore islands. Crewed yacht cruises and boat trips are also offered, as are fishing trips and swimming with whale sharks.
Cancun is famous for its crystal clear seas and superb scuba diving, and the resort is a good place to learn the skill and gain certification before entering into a wondrous, watery world with your personal guide. All the attractions and things to do here are made special with huge helpings of warm Mexican hospitality.
Cancun’s glorious setting on the Yucatan Peninsula has made it one of the most popular sun, sea and fun destinations in the country. After you’ve had your fill of on-beach activities, you can get close to nature by exploring the countryside, the extensive underwater and land-based cave systems, pristine tropical jungles and nearby national parks preserving the Mayan ruins.
