Secrets the Vine Cancun - All Inclusive Adults Only

Avenida Kukulkan Cancun|1.59km from Playa Marlin
This review is in comparison to our previous stays, not our initial thoughts on the property. The Vine has always been our go-to resort and our last visit in November 2019 was amazing. Unfortunately we have found that the quality just isn't as good as it used to be: Food quality was the biggest disappointment and has definitely gone downhill. Bluewater was always our favourite but quickly became our least favourite this trip. Pizza at Nebbiolo is delicious. House red wine has changed and was horrible. A/C in the room was minimal - would not go below 71 - we requested a fan but unfortunately didn't get one (yes we know to close the patio doors to ensure it's on). The main areas/restaurants also used to be air conditioned but no longer seem to be, especially in Dragons. Chair game is fierce! I enjoy the sunrise and would be down around 6am and a lot of hot spots were already saved. We were there for 7 days in a Preferred Junior Suite and only received bar/snack refills one day. We mentioned to our floor butler and asked for the refill, still nothing! Normally we received three mini liquors, Pringles and M&M's daily... this trip only on the day of check in. It's unfortunate because we truly do love The Vine - the rooms, views, pools, entertainment and service are still outstanding, but in comparison to previous visits it's no longer a resort we care to return to. Side note: Ricardo at Nebbiolo is fantastic and was the star of our week!

Park Royal Beach Cancun - All Inclusive
3.6/5101 Reviews

Park Royal Beach Cancun - All Inclusive

Avenida Kukulkan Cancun|0.96km from Playa Marlin
Pros: Park Royal Cancun is a newly renovated Resort, which I would give a 4.5 *. As you enter through a security- controlled entrance, you are awed by the beauty of the grounds and plants. Luggage handlers were quick and efficient. The lobby was very inviting. Checking in was a breeze. Alex and Orlando were very friendly and helpful. There are four restaurants: Mexican, Italian, Pescador and Veranda, the Veranda is a buffet, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pescador, lunch and dinner, no reservation is required. Italian and Mexican, dinner only, reservation required. The meals at the Veranda and Pescador were excellent. There were daily activities by the main pool, which also has a bar. Another pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean has a bar that also serves you and a few hammocks under some huts. Next to this area is an old Mayan ruins which you could tour, but be careful, the area is steep and rock stairs to climb. A grilling station is next to both pools. A gym is located by the main pool. There are nightly entertainments in the main lobby. I had the Presidential room which accommodated six adults. All rooms were cleaned daily if required. The Equinox on the roof provides evening drinks and some entertainment. There is one of the largest shopping malls La Isla across the Resort. Cons: Poor internet service, strongest signal is in the main lobby. Could use more nightly entertainments. Should have better entertainment at the Equinox. I would recommend umbrellas in the rooms, especially the building that has rooms only and all guests need to come to the main building for meals etc. and when it rains it is an inconvenience as there is no sheltered area to cross under. KODOS: Main Reception-Alex and Orlando. Royal Reception-Isidro. Lobby Bar-Elizabeth. Veranda Restaurant-Graciella (Reception), Gabriel and Ricardo (Waiters) Pescador Restaurant-Vivian and Dana (Reception). Funtastic-Evelyn and Viri(Entertainers). Ismael (Trainer). Royal Representative-Alan. And the gardening team who are relentlessly working to make the place beautiful.

Casa Turquesa - Near Luxury Avenue Shopping Mall
3.8/5102 Reviews
Avenida Kukulkan
I absolutely had a wonderful time on my vacation. The building and grounds are beautiful and the artwork is exquisite. I enjoyed both Katia's warm smile and generosity as well as the other woman who speaks english, but I didn't catch her name. I really loved speaking with her as she has a very strong and kind spirit. I noticed throughout my stay that there is 24hr security on site as I get up randomly throughout the night. When the AC stopped working in my room I was offered a different room with working AC, but I was comfortable in my suite and the night air was good enough to keep me cool until the next morning when they fixed it. I felt very welcomed, safe, and appreciated. They get 5 stars from me.
Hotel NYX Cancun
4.4/573 Reviews
Avenida Kukulkan
There were no major issues during our stay. Excellent service! Tips: Bring plenty of $1s for tipping. I'd recommend tipping around $1 per drink and $5-$10 per meal, more for above-and-beyond service.) Take care of the staff and they will take care of you. Meals: Know the dress code before you dine. The sushi restaurant at Umami doesn't require reservations and the food was amazing. Ivonne, our server, provided superior service. Also, as a vegetarian, I was happy that most of the menus indicated which items were vegetarian, but it was a little frustrating at the buffets to not know which items had meat. For example, at breakfast, I didn't know that the refried beans were made with lard. (However, when we asked about it, the staff offered to accommodate my dietary restrictions the next time we dined. Unfortunately, it was too late as we were leaving early the next morning.) Drinks: The drinks were excellent, I recommend getting a michelada (beer with lime and clam juice). Pools: There are two pools, a pool with a bar (not a swim-up bar) and another with hot tubs. There were plenty of daily activities at the main pool. Rooms: Our room (standard) was great, two double beds. No issues with cleanliness or maid service. I loved that there was a magnifying mirror for putting on makeup in the bathroom. The lighting in the bathroom was also good for makeup/grooming. There was a hairdryer. Toiletries provided included shampoo, soap, body wash, and lotion. There was an iron and ironing board. The mini-fridge was stocked daily (not by the maids, a different person kept the fridge stocked) with a Sprite, a Coke, 2 large waters, and two beers. (If you need more water, just ask at the front desk.) There's also a coffee pot in the room. All-inclusive: Know ahead of time what's included in the all-inclusive package and/or don't assume; just ask! The all-inclusive does NOT include room service, premium drinks, spa services, certain menu items, or tips. Also, there are some restrictions regarding the Italian restaurant and Umami, but you can eat at Umami without reservations; you only need reservations to sit at the hibachi bar. I made sure to read a lot of reviews for Hotel NYX before this trip; the negative ones seem to be written by disgruntled guests who were rude to the staff or upset about an issue they didn't report during their stay (waiting till they left to complain). Hats off to the guest experience manager who artfully responds to every single review.
The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort Villas & Spa, Cancun
4.2/5101 Reviews
Avenida Kukulkan
We ordered a studio with a kitchen. It ’s very convenient to cook. There is tableware. There is also a washing machine with a dryer. If you live a few days you can cook by yourself. It ’s very convenient. The hotel has a beautiful beach infinity pool. The opposite is Shopping mall, take a bus at the entrance of 12 pesos, one stop per person can go to a large supermarket and a lively market, if you have the opportunity to go again, you should choose this one

Hyatt Zilara Cancun - All Inclusive - Adults Only
4.6/5122 Reviews
Avenida Kukulkan
I can't say enough good things about this hotel, I just had the best time here. I do want to say that I am absolutely not a resort person who goes to an all-inclusive and spends all their time in the resort, doing the resort activities and hanging out by the beach all day. I spent a total of 8 days at this resort and half of those I was out the entire day. The 4 days I did spend at the resort I mostly just hung out on my balcony (which was FANTASTIC) reading. I didn't do any resort activities, I didn't listen to any of the evening entertainment, etc. I did eat at the restaurants, which were all very very good. I did seriously enjoy my balcony, which was one of the ocean view balconies that has 2 loungers instead of a chair and a hammock (I would not have enjoyed the hammock, so this turned out great for me). I also ordered room service multiple times, which sometimes took a little while and once they messed up my order, but the food was very good, and hot, and you could order it even late at night which was nice. Service across the property was great, everyone was extremely friendly, and I needed help a couple of times with random stuff and they bent over backwards to help me out. Couldn't have asked for better service. The location is great, very walkable to restaurants and stuff, and the property is really very nice. Overall I had a great time and I would happily stay here again.

Loved this hotel! The pool and beach are amazing. Superb food too. Most of the staff were absolutely lovely, but a few were rude and awkward for no reason.
