Stay in town, find a hotel for every budget and be close to local restaurants.
New Adults Only high end suites located on 5th Ave and Calle 30. All 6 suites have cushy beds, laptops with wi-fi, flatscreen TVs and jacuzzis. The manager and staff very helpful and friendly. Breakfast coupons included for the restaurant downstairs.
Look for deals in low season. Highly Recommended!
One of the top boutique hotels in town known for friendly service. Offering minimal, high end decor, very comfortable beds and jacuzzi suites. Plants and trees surround the lazy river like pool, jacuzzi and comfortable lounge. Short walk to the beach, breakfast off the menu at El Bistro and beach club passes included.
We loved our jacuzzi on a private patio and this hotel so much we had our Rehearsal Dinner for our wedding at El Bistro.
Let them know if it's a special occasion. Deals are available on discount sites.
Aventura Mexicana was known as a gay friendly hotel and took over the hotel next door to expand. Small pool, A/C, refridgerators and continental breakfast included. The paid menu for breakfast was very tasty and reasonably priced. Computer in the lobby for free internet access.
Did a walk through and this hotel seems like an oasis off 10 Avenue for adults and couples during the day. If a quiet pool that gets sun is important, this is the place. Close to nightclubs so noise at night seems to be an issue for some rooms.
This Mexican style budget hotel is located right on the beach. Head down Calle 4 and turn right at the beach. Yes, luggage must go through the sand to get to the front office.
Regular rooms are nothing fancy but plenty adequate. The kitchette was fairly useless except the fridge. Beds are a bit firm. the A/C was loud and the bathrooms are small. Great view from the little balcony and the beach was wide in this area. Pool is good for a quick dip to cool off. Massages available on site.
Book with the hotel and a menu breakfast is included. Use the beach loungers and never have to move or dress for lunch. Beach towels provided for guests.
The two ocean front rooms are located on the second floor and have palapa style ceilings and large decks with unobstructed views of the ocean. All other rooms are concrete and none open directly onto the sand.
We got a great deal for low season and loved being right on the beach.
Charming budget hotel in the quiet north end of 5th Avenue. Rooms are equipped with mini-fridge, A/C, cable TV and even towel animals. The beds were firm, rooms typical Mexican style and worth the low season price.
Hotels Less Than $50
Depending on the time of year, website or specials offered through the hotel it is possible to get a room for less than $50. Email the hotel directly to ask for low season specials and compare with orbitz, expedia, cancun.com and other discount sites.
Hotel Santa Lucia
Have not stayed at this funky place built over a cenote but I have enjoyed the Garden swing bar. Located off the beach but a cozy, tropical vibe abounds.
