Resort Profile

One of Cancun’s top luxury beach resorts, The Ritz-Carlton Cancun boasts a Aaa Overall Beach Resort Rating (our highest quality score) and caters well to both couples and families with impeccable service, activities for kids, an exceptional spa, a mostly quiet atmosphere, and often surprisingly low rates (the TripValue is +7, our highest value score). The swimming pool areas aren’t overly impressive for a resort of this caliber (although there is a particularly nice infinity pool off to the side of the property, with a great ocean view) and there’s no swim-up bar or all-inclusive options; but the resort offers a tranquil white-sand beach (with additional space due to the lack of an immediate next-door neighbor), excellent restaurants, a lounge with over 100 tequilas, high-quality tennis courts, a strong fitness center with a variety of classes, a superior kids club (“Ritz Kids,” for ages 4-12), and private beach cabanas for romantic dinners. Recently renovated, the upscale rooms have a modern feel; they come with dark wood furnishings, comfortable beds, bathrooms with double vanities and separate showers and tubs, and balconies with ocean views. Club Level rooms come with access to convenient Club Lounge dining and complimentary drinks. The spa offers top-notch couples massages on the beach, Mayan-inspired treatments with locally-sourced ingredients, volcanic red clay body wraps, warm stone massages, whirlpools, plunge pools, and aromatherapy showers and steam rooms. Activities include mezcal tastings, excursions to the Mayan ruins at Tulum, a variety of yoga classes (Ashtanga, sunrise, and Yoga Fusion), salsa dance lessons, Pilates Reformer classes, and beach volleyball. Aquaworld is also 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).

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.
