4 Great Cancun Resorts

Beach in Cancun

Cancun is arguably the most renowned Mexican resort area in the world, and for a very good reason. Located on the northeast coast of Quintana Roo in southern Mexico, it offers world-class beaches and exciting nightlife.

There are also many incredible resorts there that have luxurious amenities at fairly reasonable prices. Here’s a list of four Cancun hotels that are definitely worth checking out on your next visit.

Gran Melia Cancun

Modeled after the great Mayan temples, the Gran Melia is a site to behold. The resort offers over 600 meters of beautiful beach line, and is situated between the Caribbean Sea and the Nichupte Lagoon.

It features multiple pools, fine dining, beach side cabanas, a nine-hole golf course and a high rated spa, all while being affordable; you should be able to find a room for under $100 during offseason. Don’t forget to also try a quick internet search to help find coupon codes and discounts to regular pricing. .

Bellevue Beach Paradise All Inclusive

Nestled between the beach and lagoon, the Bellevue Beach Paradise hotel provides an unbelievable view from nearly every room. This beach side resort also has three different restaurants, a poolside bar and a sports bar with billiards. Depending on the season, you can book a room there for around $110.

Oasis Cancun – All Inclusive

The Oasis’  unique pyramid design is a testament to Cancun’s pride in its Mayan heritage. One great thing about the Oasis Cancun is that it’s surrounded by tropical gardens, solariums and recreation areas.

The resort also has nine restaurants, twelve bars and a complimentary nine-hole golf course on the property. Relaxation is easy at the Oasis. You can travel from pool to pool via a series of small waterfalls, or just lay out by the water in one of four separate hammock areas provided.

Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Cancun Resort and Spa

One thing you notice with beach resorts is that they can often end up with really long names. Perhaps the reason is that they are trying to fit in as much information about their services as possible. If that is the case, then the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Cancun Resort and Spa is incomplete because there is way more to do there than the name entails.

Across from the Cancun Convention Center, the resort is designed to give visitors a more authentic cultural experience. Hints of this can be seen in the music performances at the hotel, which range from mariachi to folkloric ballets as well as in the choices of local ingredients used in their restaurant menus.

The Fiesta Americana also offers complimentary access to a beautiful eighteen-hole golf course, the (Pok-Ta-Pok Gulf Club), which is only two kilometers from the resort.

A trip to Cancun can be a really great experience. To save money, try going during the off-season. Thinking in advance about what it is you want from your hotel or resort is also a good idea, because some have limited all-inclusive amenities while others may have more features but are pay as you go.
