Sandos Cancun Luxury Experience Resort
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- Serene AAA 4-Diamond resort, five minutes from La Isla Shopping Village
- The all-inclusive meal plan rates also cover tennis, some water sports and imported spirits
- There are three infinity pools overlooking the white, sandy beach
Sandos Cancun Luxury Experience Resort is a quiet AAA 4-Diamond resort packing a lot into its all-inclusive rates -- imported alcoholic drinks, 24-hour room service and most on-site activities. It’s tucked away on a prime stretch of beach in Cancun’s Hotel Zone and is a five-minute drive from La Isla Shopping Village.
The hotel is adult-orientated but also caters to families. There is a trio of gorgeous infinity pools leading right down to the white sandy beach. Indoor amenities include a 7,000-square-foot fitness center and an even larger spa, encompassing hydrotherapy areas, saunas and Jacuzzis. AquaWorld is only a 10-minute drive away, where guests can try kayaking, pedal-boating, sailing and windsurfing (for a fee).
The breakfast buffet at Zango offers plenty of choice and includes made-to-order eggs at the omelette station. For dinner, savor Japanese teppanyaki at Gaijin (reservations required) and molecular gastronomy at Seasons. Drinks are included, but you’ll have to pay extra for wines other than the house choice. Kick back with cocktails in the lobby bar (open all day) or at the Premium Club Bar on the sixth floor.
Rooms are fresh and bright, with a Caribbean feel, and the marble bathrooms have both a bathtub and a separate walk-in shower. All have balconies to make the most of ocean or lagoon views. Suites are spacious -- each has a separate living room and kitchenette. Guests in these rooms also have exclusive access to the poolside cabanas.
