With its distinctive façade of interconnected pyramids, the all-inclusive Paradisus Cancun is one of the most eye-catching resorts in the Hotel Zone.

Sleek suites feature ocean or lagoon view balconies with sun loungers. Floors are polished gray marble, while walls are adorned with local artwork like black-and-white photos. Minibars are restocked with free drinks each day, and bathrooms with rainfall shower heads feature high-end Mugler bath products.

The resort features four lagoon-style swimming pools, as well as tennis courts, a big fitness center, and an Asian-inspired spa. There’s also a nine-hole golf course, plus three play zones geared toward babies, young kids, and teens. The resort’s idyllic white-sand beach is lined with comfy sun loungers and thatched-roof shelters.

The all-inclusive rate includes meals, room service, non-motorized water sports, and most drinks.

Paradisus Cancun has nine on-site restaurants, with options ranging from upscale Mexican fare at Mole to light, Mediterranean cuisine at Vento. The resort’s five bars are equally varied, with Coco’s Beach Bar hosting beach parties twice a week, and Red Lounge offering a sophisticated space for dancing and sipping creative cocktails. Yoga, meditation classes, and tequila tastings are just some of the free activities available.

Adults can upgrade to the Royal Service or families might want to consider the Family Concierge option. Both services include additional perks like access to private pools, the service of a personal butler, and priority reservations at the resort’s a la carte restaurants.
