Cancun isn’t all about 5* ultra-luxury resorts, though it does have its fair share of those. It’s also home to a great range of 4* hotels that provide comfort, service, and great facilities, but without the scary price tag. Here are 5 of the best 4-star hotels and resorts in the popular Mexican vacation city of Cancun.
Wyndham Alltra Cancun
This new 4* resort only opened in Spring 2022 but has already built quite a reputation for its excellent amenities and personal service. The resort offers a range of 458 rooms and suites, which start at the 387 sq ft Standard King rooms and Junior Suites offering a sitting area, a minibar, and a balcony or terrace. For a more luxurious suite, try the 1-bed 645 sq ft Master Suites which have balconies with a hot tub, a spacious living room, and access to the Alltra VIP Club.
The Wyndham Alltra Cancun has ten restaurants, bars, and lounges to choose from, offering Mexican, Italian and Asian cuisine, alongside the Ventanas buffet, a coffee shop, and plenty more. The beachfront location in the mid-section of the Cancun hotel zone is ideal, whether you want to shop, enjoy Cancun’s nightlife – or you don’t want to leave the resort at all!
Oh! Cancun The Urban Oasis
This downtown Cancun hotel is a great example of the value for money you can find away from Cancun’s expensive hotel zone. The 4* Oh! Cancun The Urban Oasis offers 58 comfortable rooms, ranging from standard rooms with all the amenities you need, to junior suites, with a balcony, as well as a sitting and dining area.
The location of the hotel is appealing if you want to explore what downtown Cancun has to offer. It’s only a few minutes from the Plaza Las Americas shopping mall, which is one of the best shopping options in Cancun. You are also within walking distance of the family-favorite Parque las Palapas, Cancun’s main public park. The hotel has a restaurant, a bar, and a fantastic pool area filled with tropical plants and Bali beds, making it a perfect spot to soak up that Cancun sunshine.
Dreams Vista Cancun Golf and Spa Resort
Located right on the oceanfront near the Isla Mujeres ferry terminal, this convenient 4* resort is perfect if you want a quality stay, with great golfing facilities, and easy access to downtown and the hotel zone.
The resort has a total of 416 rooms and suites, each one boasting a beautiful ocean view. All rooms have a furnished balcony, mini bar, room service, and 24-hour concierge service. Upgraded ‘Preferred Club’ rooms also have access to a private lounge and other special touches. Rooms are modern and relaxing, with a colorful feature wall adding personality.
A particular strength of this resort is its wide-ranging activities, with a family splash park complete with slides, a rooftop pool, plus two surf pools where you can learn how to catch a wave. Other activities include tequila tasting, cooking classes, and beach parties. The trouble will be deciding which activity to try first.
Canopy by Hilton Cancun La Isla
Canopy by Hilton La Isla is just steps from the popular La Isla shopping mall, with its stores, movie theater, and exciting giant Ferris wheel meaning extra entertainment is never far away.
In the resort, a range of room types are available, from the 350 sq ft Two Queen rooms through to the 1,100 sq ft Master Suite with a separate living area. All are decorated in a sleek modern style, with grey and blue hues and copper accents giving rooms a high-end feel.
Dining is focused on the ground floor open plan area, where the all-day Azulinda cafe and bar aims to introduce guests to Mexican delicacies, and Canopy Central where guests can enjoy a drink or small bites.
A rooftop bar rounds of the dining options, which, although limited, are welcoming and inventive.
Marriott Cancun Resort
The beachfront Marriott Cancun Resort is situated perfectly between La Isla shopping mall and popular Playa Delfines beach in the hotel zone’s mid-section.
Rooms are spacious and classic in design, inspired by the colors of the beach, and with all the facilities you need for a comfortable vacation. Private furnished balconies come as standard, many also offering ocean views.
This resort’s dining options are impressive, with 9 restaurants and bars to choose from, including Sasi Thai, which is perfect for a romantic dinner-a-deux, or the family-friendly Gustino Italian Grill. There’s an attractive palapa-thatched beach shack complete with hammocks, ultra-relaxed vibes, and a resident DJ. A spa, fitness center, and access to plentiful water sports round off this well-rated 4* Cancun resort.
