The Westin Resort & Spa Cancun

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • Oceanfront resort between a private white-sand beach and Nichupte Lagoon, a nature preserve
  • Scuba and snorkel at the world's second largest coral reef, just off shore from the resort's beach
  • Splash with the kids in one of the four pools or indulge in some Mayan-inspired wellness at the spa
  • It's at the far end of the Hotel Zone, away from the bustling central area; guests rave about the secluded, less crowded beach area

"Waters here are the best in the Zone for snorkeling" -- Frommer's

Rooms & Rates

The Westin Resort and Spa Cancun is fresh off a 2014 renovation, but it’s not the newly revamped lobby and rooms that make this hotel unique. The hotel is perched on a strip of land between the crystal clear waters of the ocean and the Nichupte Lagoon, a nature preserve chock-full of native flora, fauna and wildlife. This spot means nearly all the rooms have some type of water view. Another distinctive factor here is that a section of the world’s second largest coral reef is just off shore, which makes this one of the few places in the area that’s suited for diving.

The hotel is located on the far end of Cancun’s bustling Hotel Zone; past guests say that the beaches feel secluded and peaceful, though the trade-off is a 15-minute taxi ride to the center of town. On the property, there’s four separate pools for swimming, several restaurants, a fitness center, tennis, a kids club and a spa. In short: it has everything guests might need in a resort plus the Westin’s trademark Heavenly Beds.

This is also one of the few spas in the area offering an authentic temazcal ritual, which involves an adobe sweat bath and a shaman playing native instruments and singing while you detox.
