We stayed in a beachfront suite which was the largest and most luxurious room we’ve ever stayed in. It had the expected Ritz-Carlton amenities like an expansive marble bathroom and comfy feather bed. It also had three balconies, separate dining and living rooms, a powder room, two televisions, an espresso machine and a doorbell (because the room was so big you couldn’t hear if someone knocked). Our corner room gave us sweeping views of the ocean. In fact, all the rooms at the Ritz-Carlton are ocean view. While we could have spent more time exploring the island, we kept returning to our “Home Sweet Suite.” It’s going to be hard to stay anywhere else when we return.
There was plenty to do at the hotel. We took a cooking class at the Culinary Center (more to come on that later), spent an afternoon lounging at the new Beach Club, and took a tequila tasting in the Lobby Bar. The room service was excellent: I always order their muesli, but the open face breakfast quesadilla was delicious too.
Cancun has a lot to offer; but if you’re looking for R&R, you wouldn’t have to leave the hotel to be perfectly content. Below are more pictures from our trip:
