With exceptional beach and pool areas, strong overall service, and reasonable rates, The Westin Lagunamar is one of Mexico’s very best values for both couples and families; it attains a TripValue of +7, our top score for value. It’s not all-inclusive, but its condo-style accommodations are particularly family-friendly (all come with full kitchens and washer/dryers; one bedroom villas and studios are available). There are just three on-site restaurant options (and that’s including the sports bar); but the property offers an enormous infinity pool overlooking an impeccable white-sand beach with a waterslide and a swim-up bar (the beach and pool here help the Overall Beach Resort Rating significantly), a kids club for ages 4-12, an on-site deli, a quality BBQ grill area, a very good fitness center, and a sleek Mayan-inspired spa with oceanfront treatment cabanas and in-suite massages. On-site activities are somewhat limited, but include mini golf, Spanish classes, dance classes, and a baby sea turtle release program from May through November; the concierge can also arrange excursions to Tulum, Xcaret, Isla Mujeres, Chichen Itza, and other nearby attractions. Kids club activities include arts and crafts, piñata making, hula dancing, and iguana feedings. “Parents’ Night Out” is an evening child supervision program that’s available as well. The plethora of shops and restaurants of La Isla Shopping Village is right across the street, and the best of Cancun’s nightlife isn’t too far. Water sports such as jet skiing, flyboarding, and hoverboarding are also available within walking distance at Jetpack Adventures.
The resort can facilitate departure COVID-19 antigen testing with local providers.
