It’s fair to say that travelers to Cancun are spoiled for choice when it comes to staying in the city. Cancun has more than its fair share of top-quality all-inclusive hotels, with several having opened up just this year and even more to come in 2023. Yet when it comes to deciding which are the best in the city, there’s a strong case for three all-inclusive resorts that operate under the same chain, each deserving of the crown of being the city’s best.
Playa Hotels & Resorts has recently been crowned as “The Best Hotel Chain In Mexico” in the prestigious awards by Travel Weekly magazine. Playa has several high-end hotels and resorts in Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean under their wings, but three, in particular, stand out – Hyatt Zilara, Hyatt Ziva, and Wyndham Alltra – for their top facilities, amenities, and luxurious offerings to travelers. Given that they played a key role in helping Playa Hotels & Resorts win big at the awards ceremony, here’s a closer look at what makes these resorts so special and why they should be on any traveler’s travel bucket list.
Perfectly located on the widest stretch of beach in the entire Cancun Hotel Zone, the Hyatt Zilara is up there with the best hotels in the city. An adult-only all-inclusive resort, Hyatt Zilara features ocean views in all of its suites, as well as six restaurants and five bars and lounges where guests can enjoy some of the finest dining and drinking options around. There are plenty of activities to keep you busy throughout the days and nights, as well as spectacular pools and world-class spa and wellness facilities.
Stays in the Hyatt Zilara on upcoming dates start from $650, but travelers can rest assured knowing they are getting good bang for their buck. Rooms are spacious and modern, with even the most “basic” room types boasting a generous 653 square-foot (61 square meters) of floor space, in addition to luxurious amenities such as a double-jetted bathtub and a hammock on the balcony to enjoy the gorgeous ocean views from.
Located on the Yucatan coast in the Hotel Zone, the Hyatt Ziva is situated just a stone’s throw away from the white, sandy beaches and clear blue sea that keeps travelers coming back to Cancun. A family-friendly all-inclusive option, this impressive resort features 547 luxury suites with contemporary Caribbean decor and views of the water, resort, or gardens. With as many as 8 à la carté and international buffet restaurants and 7 bars and lounges, you’ll be spoiled for choice at the Hyatt Ziva when it comes to drinking and dining.
The Hyatt Ziva also features three infinity pools, including an adults-only pool located in the adults-only area of the resort – perfect for those who want to enjoy the peace and quiet of the beautiful natural surroundings. Prices for upcoming dates start at $786 per night, with rooms starting from 483 square feet (43 square meters) and with choices such as a walk-out terrace or a view of the dolphin habitat.
Another all-inclusive resort that’s family-friendly, the Wyndham Alltra is located in a prime spot in the city’s Hotel Zone and comes equipped with its own private beach. There are plenty of things to enjoy for both kids and grown-ups, with a water park located onsite as well as a tranquil spa – not to mention the tequila and wine tastings with expert sommeliers. Live music and entertainment all come as part of the package, alongside seven eateries and six bars and lounges to try.
With room prices for upcoming dates starting from as little as $291 per night, the Wyndham Alltra represents great value for money. Rooms start from 387 square feet (36 square meters) and are equipped with sitting areas and peaceful balconies as standard. With resorts like this under their umbrella, it’s easy to see why Playa Hotels & Resorts was crowned the best in the business during the week.
