With so many choices of accommodation in Cancun, it can be daunting to sift through the choices to find the perfect vacation.
From super-complex all-inclusive resorts with the amenities of a small city to the boutique and chic one-off hotels and guesthouses dotted throughout Cancun and the wider Mexican Caribbean — travelers are truly spoilt for choice in this world-renowned vacation location.
And with so much competition, the resorts that want to stand out from the crowd go a whole lot bigger than just turn down service and day trip coupons.
The following resorts both offer something special to catch travelers’ eyes.

Stay More, Save More At NIZUC
Every traveler wants as much bang for their buck as possible, but in Cancun, that can be easier said than done. As the destination only goes from strength-to-strength demand is quickly driving up prices.
That’s why the “stay more, save more” is an insane offer rarely seen in this corner of the world. The NIZUC offers travelers 35% off their nightly room rates when a minimum booking of 7 days is made between now and December 19th, 2023.

Far from trying to fill up rooms in the off-season, this offer is being made during some of the busiest peak months in Cancun’s tourism calendar!
Furthermore, this isn’t some upstart resort fighting for attention in a sea of luxury resorts; no, NIZUC is one of the trendiest establishments in all of Mexico. In fact, they’re award-winning, having claimed the following in recent years:
- The World’s Most Instagrammable Hotel 2020.
As well as making the grade for the following lists:
- Top 20 Resorts In Eastern Mexico: Reader’s Choice Awards 2022.
- 25 Best Resort Hotels In Mexico: World’s Best Awards 2022.

Additionally, while many resorts have fought over small plots of land in Cancun’s hotel zone, NIZUC took a different approach, choosing instead to create Punta NIZUC, a secluded beach enclave that will trick travelers into thinking they’re on their own private island while being just at the foot of the hotel zone.
With huge savings and the chance to set Instagram on fire, this is one of the few one-off experiences left in Cancun that hasn’t just followed the recipe of their competition in the hotel zone.

Sea View Guaranteed At The Waldorf Astoria
A resort chain so famous they even have a salad named after them! All across the world, the wealthy, famous, and those that enjoy the finer things in life delight in the consistently brilliant offerings by Waldorf Astoria.
And that reputation is only bolstered by the Waldorf Astoria Cancun, a breathtaking addition to the Mexican Caribbean; it guarantees all guests a perfect sea view thanks to smart architecture and a focus on the customers’ experience over cramming as many suites into the resort as possible.
Set back from the beach 60 – 130 feet and angled, the choice of its building footprint ensures no suites feel like they’re stuck in a corner, making sure all 100 acres of the resort’s Caribbean beach-front is viewable.
And like the NIZUC, serious thought was put into its location. The luscious green mangroves surrounding the resort remind travelers of its private location between Cancun and Puerto Morelos.
On the off-chance that travelers get bored of the view, the relaxation only continues in the 21-room spa that combines traditional Mayan treatments and spirituality with modern-day techniques. This is where stress comes to die!
True to reputation, the Waldorf Astoria Cancun offers what is arguably the most refined dining experience to be found in Cancun, with its signature restaurant Malpeque earning huge praise and setting standards that make the competition blush.
The resort doesn’t leave guests aimless either. For those wanting to supplement this relaxing stay in pure luxury, the staff is more than happy to help travelers book the perfect trips and activities. The resort concierge is the gateway to life-changing experiences aplenty!
