Resort Profile

With a beautiful white-sand beach, an alluring lagoon-style infinity pool just steps from it, and an abundance of water sports in the immediate vicinity, this quiet JW Marriott property caters well to couples. It’s a very strong beach resort overall, especially for the price tag (the TripValue is +6 here, meaning it’s one of the most outstanding values in Mexico). Some facilities are shared with the Marriott Cancun Resort next door, which generally has more families with children; but the resort offers excellent on-site restaurants (the Italian restaurant is especially good), strong dining variety, a quality Mayan-inspired spa with couples massages, a 14-foot dive pool with an artificial reef, a sports bar, an adults-only pool area with a swim-up bar, and a great fitness center with spin bikes and plenty of equipment and windows. The rooms are upscale, especially for the price; recently renovated, they all come with ocean views, a modern feel, large flat-screen TVs, and attractive décor with light wood accents. Upgrading to Club 91 accommodations comes with extra perks such as top-floor views and access to an exclusive lounge. Aquaworld is within walking distance; the impressive selection of water sports there includes excellent scuba diving, parasailing, snorkeling with whale sharks and other marine life, Flowrider surfing, jet skiing, jet boat rides, deep sea fishing, Flyboarding, jungle boat tours, day trips to Isla Mujeres, and more.

On-site COVID-19 antigen (rapid) testing is available. Tests are conducted on property at no cost to guests (complimentary for up to four guests per room per stay). Results are received within 30 minutes.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
