Resort Profile

One of Cancun’s very best values for families (the TripValue here is +7, our top score for relative value), the Marriott Cancun Resort offers affordable rates, kid-friendly amenities, and a proximity to plenty of water sports. The rooms are a bit dated and timeshare sales pitches can be a nuisance; but the property offers an excellent white-sand beach, a great fitness center, good restaurants plus outstanding cuisine variety, a small spa with basic treatments, a nice pool area with a large hot tub and swim-up bar, a great on-site sports bar, strong overall service, good tennis courts, a kids club, and quality rooms for the price (despite being slightly dated). Guests have access to the amenities of the JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa (Aa2) next door, which is more modern overall and tends to have more couples than families. Rates are higher there, though, too. Highlights at the JW include a quality Mayan-inspired spa with couples massages, a 14-foot dive pool with an artificial reef, an adults-only pool area with a swim-up bar, and a great fitness center with spin bikes and plenty of equipment and windows. 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.

Complimentary COVID-19 testing for U.S. re-entry is available on-site (complimentary antigen tests are provided for two guests per room staying three consecutive nights or longer). For additional guests, testing is available at a fee; the antigen test is $50 per person and the PCR test is $125 per person. Results are returned in 24 hours.

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.
