Ritz Carlton Cancun
Ritz Carlton Cancun Review
The majestic Ritz-Carlton is the only beachfront resort in the world to earn three AAA Five Diamond ratings by extending the ultimate in formal service and opulence, even if it’s from the comfort of a sun lounger. The decor – in public areas as well as guest rooms — is sumptuous and ornate with thick carpets, elaborate chandeliers, and fresh flowers throughout.
The hotel fronts a 360m (1,200-ft.) white-sand beach, and all rooms overlook the ocean, pool (heated during winter months), and tropical gardens.
In all rooms, marble bathrooms have telephones, separate tubs and showers, and of course the finest toiletries. Ritz-Carlton Club floors offer guests
five minimeals a day, private butler service, and premium bath products.

For true culinary aficionados, Ritz added a new $25,000 Culinary Center with Viking Range equipment and interactive cooking classes. In addition, Ritz serves up instruction on their three lighted tennis courts with a newly implemented club operated by legendary player and ESPN commentator Cliff Drysdale. After a challenging match, a visit to upgraded Kayanta Spa is a must, which offers an excellent selection of Maya and Mexican inspired treatments and massages.
The Club Grill, a fashionable English pub, and Fantino, serving Mediterranean fine dining in a classical European ambience, are the only two restaurants in Mexico holding the 2006 AAA Five Diamond Award.
The Ritz Kids program has supervised activities for children, and baby-sitting services are also available. Special packages for golfing, tennis, culinary, and spa getaways are definitely worth exploring.
