“Perfect for a family”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Visited last July 2014 and could not help but commend the hotel and its staff for the stay we had. Check in was alright and the staff made you feel welcome. Rooms were big specially for a family of 5 with a kitchen and laundry and they give you soap so you can do your laundry. Hotel has a small grocery where you can get food that you can cook in your room. Room has cooking pans and plates and spoon and forks. Gives you the option to hang around the hotel area if you are not in the mood to go out and eat. Infinity pool with a swim up bar was great and drinks were not watered down. Beach was wavy and good enough for small kids. A big plus was the La Isla Mall across the street which gives you lots of options and for those who are not much into staying in the pool or the beach.

Room Tip: Get a higher room if possible but not really a big deal. Restaurant food selection is quite limited...

We stayed at the Westin because we were taking a family trip with our timeshare. It was a nice place, with 2 huge pools and beautiful beach area. I will say the place is HUGE if you like more boutique hotels or smaller hotels you will not like this! I thought it was nice because we had a room with our own kitchen and washer and dryer. One other downside was the food. It was not bad just very plain and it seemed liked all the restaurants had the same menu. Overall it was a nice stay.

This is my second time staying at the Westin Lagunamar in Cancun and I absolutely love it. The property is beautiful, with 2 huge infinity pools and all rooms have a view of the ocean.

Our villa is a 1 bedroom lock-off with a full kitchen, dining room, living room, separate bathroom, separate shower, jacuzzi tub and a balcony with a view of the pool and ocean. Villa is stocked every day with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, dish washer detergent, laundry detergent, paper towels, and tissues. No need to bring these items.

The Westin Lagunamar knows how to get it right. They offer daily complimentary housekeeping, if you are an owner - 20% off at all restaurants/15% off if you are not an owner. WiFi is free!! (I just went to Atlantis in the Bahamas which charges $22 per day for WiFi - will never go there again!)

The concierge is excellent, very helpful and they will help you book restaurants - usually with a complimentary cocktail. They have full menus at the concierge of many restaurants so you can check the menu for selections and affordability before you go. The villas and grounds are extremely clean.

Having a kitchen is awesome since we can at least have breakfast in the villa and some other snacks in order to save and most importantly for convenience. At night, we enjoy eating dinner out at on the of fantastic restaurants.

All villas also have a washer and dryer which is extremely convenient after spending your day at the beach and/or pool. This is a must for me.

Overall: The facilities at the Westin Lagunamar is excellent and top notch.

The location of the Westin Lagunamar is excellent - directly across the street from La Isla Mall - which has many more restaurant options and an excellent variety of shopping. The outdoor concept with restaurants on the lagoon is just gorgeous. One caveat is that overall - if you are from the USA - shopping designer goods are much cheaper in the USA.

Booking excursions is generally more expensive in the hotels but they will make sure that those tours are insured by the government.

It is very safe to take the Bus (R2) to Walmart (center of the City of Cancun - is not on the island) - but is will take at least 25 minutes on the bus. Not all buses are air conditioned. The bus will cost you 10 pesos (which is less than $1).

You can also take the bus up to the Isla Mujeres ferry, the ferry will cost you approx. $20pp. Spending a day at Isla Mujeres is a lot of fun and the boat ride is beautiful. Don't forget to rent a golf cart for a couple of hours to tour the island (approx. $15 per hour).

The only difficulty I have found is getting a chaise lounge -- pool side or on the beach. I recommend getting up early to reserve a chaise lounge with a pair of flip flops, magazine, etc. Yesterday, I wanted to sit on the beach and found 1 chaise lounge when this family several seats down approached us and told us they were all saved - even though no one was using them and nothing was on it. The mother was very aggressive and started yelling at me and my daughter.

I'm not sure how the Lagunamar could police chairs/chaise lounges, but I dare say that many people save seats and don't use them or only use them for a few hours. The Lagunamar could also use more umbrellas up by the pools. More chaises and umbrellas/huts are also needed on the beach. Thankfully, I am a morning person, typically up by 630am - and am going to make sure I reserve seat(s) early.

Overall - I would definitely recommend the Westin Lagunamar for your stay in Cancun, the facilities are new and beautiful and the location is excellent. The beach, location, heavenly beds, villas, and pools are amazing.

Room Tip: Choose a villa above the 3rd floor otherwise you will have to look at the beach between the palm tre...

This was our first experience with a timeshare property and as much as some things were an inconvenience, others were much better. We liked the freedom and flexibility of having a kitchen and being able to snack/cook as we chose. Also loved having a washer and dryer. Disadvantage was with our drinks. You can bring a cooler to the pool/beach which is fine if you drink beer but a pain if you want a good frozen drink. Drinks at the resort are expensive so we saved our alcohol intake for happy hour from 3-4 at the main pool and 4-5 at the other.
Tips:
Book airport transfers through USA Transfers. $55 for up to 3 people roundtrip in a private vehicle. Not a bus!
Keep your room tidy throughout your stay because they only offered cleaning services for 1 day of our 7 night stay.
Use the resort voucher and take the cab to Wal-Mart - 20 min cab ride and you can find just about everything you need there. Stock up on paper towels, toilet paper and paper plates! I asked the cab driver to then take us across the street to the liquor store La Europa. He did without hesitation. Make sure you tip your driver! If you would prefer to walk, they have the same store a few blocks down to the left of the resort.
For tequila lovers visit La Disterilla a few blocks to the left of the resort. They offer plenty samples of free, good tequila to help make your decision. Decent prices too.
We ate at El Fish Fritanga which was recommended by our concierge. Short 5 min walk to the left of the resort. Food was ok. I guess if you don't experience seafood like we do in Louisiana, you would enjoy it!
Eat at Elephante and Thai across the street at La Isla - AWESOME food and atmosphere. Both ended up being our favorites. You can make reservations before hand at opentable.com
Eat breakfast at the little place next door to the aquarium at La Isla. Can't remember the name of the place but if you ask and its early, they will seat you in a little walkway right next to the dolphin pools. Place opens at 9:30 and the dolphin shows start at 10. Awesome to be able to eat breakfast and watch them at the same time.
Eat at La Parilla at La Isla for some good Mexican food! They'll bring your drinks out on their heads. Great place for kids.
Take the ferry to Isla Mujures! Rent a golf cart and spend the day cruising the island. Have a drink at The Joint - neat little Jamaican themed place. Buy some fruit at the little stands on the street to experience what you can't find in the states. North beach is the best for swimming. South side is the best to sightsee. Awesome day and Great time!
Do your souvenir shopping at market 28 instead of the flea market. Bus ride closer to downtown.

Overall a great trip and the advantage of the resort not being all inclusive was that we got to experience lots more of Cancun and Isla Mujuers than others that stayed at the resort because it was "free". Prob spent about the same if not a little more than an all-inclusive place.
Service is great a a little tip goes a long way!

Room Tip: Ask to see your room before you accept it. Make them give you a few options.

We ended our 3 week holiday in the USA with a 7 night stay in Cancun Mexico, The Westin Lagunamar was a lovely place to relax and kick back, the staff were very friendly & helpful, we had only one hiccup and that was with the room we booked in Australia wasn`t the room we were given on check-in, but after my husband went back to reception he sorted it out & we were moved to new rooms the next day although a little inconvenient the rooms were much better.they service the rooms every day , The restaurants were good with plenty of choice, I am a Coeliac and need to eat Gluten free the wait staff were very accommodating and gave me plenty of menu choices.We also had lovely weather while we were there 15- 20 Jan 2013.

Room Tip: Book the upper floors as the rooms mostly face the beach and the palm trees block the view.

Went to Cancun for our family vacation. We stayed for six nights at the Westin. I would say this was a great choice. The hotel was beautiful and the room was great. The beach is absolutely beautiful. Very family friendly. The only complaint we had was that the coffee in the room was not restocked when the room was cleaned. If you want more you"ll have to buy it for 300 pesos a bag. The coffee was really good so we did buy some. I would suggest buying some from Wal-mart if you're staying long. Having a washer and dryer in our room was great especially since we forgot my son's suitcase. Taco Factory near the clubs is a great food choice. We did eat at the pizza place in the mall across the street, but it was really pricy and the pizza was small. We used the bus every day, very cheap way to travel and easy. If you need to take money out from the ATM do not use the hotel's you will have a charge from your bank for about $7.00 and a $50.00 charge on top of that. We used the ATM in the Walmart and were not charged any fees and received a decent exchange rate. If you want pastries for breakfast stock up with some from Wal-mart much cheaper than buying from the store in the hotel. I was so thankful for free WI-FI in the room and for Wal-mart.

Room Tip: I read other reviews so I requested a room above the fourth floor. If we ever go back I would reques...
