Best Cancun Hotels for Kids

Cancun Hotels can be great for kids and the whole family.

When traveling to Cancun with family, most people want to ensure that their kids have a great time. A lot of times the hotel selection can make or break a family vacation – trust me.

Take the time before your vacation to look into Cancun hotels that cater to kids. The best ones are where kids can spend all day enjoying themselves and making new friends while you can spend time enjoying yourself without worrying about them.

Here are 5 Cancun hotels for kids that have awesome water parks and kids clubs for your family vacation.

Sea Adventure Resort & Water Park

The Sea Adventure Resort & Water Park is built for kids – the hotel surrounds a huge water park. The resort’s “Kids Club” is for kids between the ages of 4 and 12 where they are able to create arts and crafts, have fun face painting, and even participate in a treasure hunt. There are also various water activities from swimming classes to water balloon wars. “Kids Club” even celebrates kids’ birthdays with a traditional piñata and a birthday cake.

Hotel Club Med Cancun

Club Med’s Mini Club Med is perfect for kids 4 to 10 years old who love to learn new things and parents who still want a romantic meal in Cancun. This Cancun hotel for kids does it all – teaching land and water sports, snorkeling, and more. Kids are able to play fun team sports and take part in some shows. The Pajamas Club is a babysitting service for kids 4 months and up so you and your loved one can enjoy an evening alone.

Dreams Resort

The Dreams Explorers club is created for kids between the ages of 3 and 12 that are all about making new friends. Daily activities include exploring for hidden treasure, sandcastle competitions, arts and crafts, and even a camping adventure out on the beach. You can trust that your kids are having fun and being safe while you enjoy one of the most luxurious resorts in Cancun.

Great Parnassus Resort

The Great Parnassus Resort has an aqua park geared towards kids with a sense of adventure. It has a pirates ship, a castle, and plenty of water activities. The Great Parnassus also has a baby club for those between 18 months and 3 years. There are also family hotel rooms that can accommodate families of up to five – with bunk beds for the kids and a beautiful view of the beach for you.

Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa

The brand new Sandos Aqua Park is an incredible water park with 17 slides, a “raining” palm tree, and a ton of water spouts throughout the park. The Kids Club is open for kids ages 4 to 12 and day care for an infant is available by request. Kids can also play team sports, create arts and crafts, and dance at a mini disco.

    I recommend the Great Parnassus because has a nice and big Water park and the environment is very family oriented. Even in some rooms I saw they have bunk beds for large families and extra accommodations . The food is great and for adult there are two bars until 2 am. It is a good experience and the hotel looks clean and new.
