Recommend Cancun hotel?
Posted by: prymsnap

Mr. Prymsnap and I are planning a stay in Tulum, Mexico early next year. En route back to the states we will spend one or two nights in Cancun as that's the airline transportation hub. Any suggestions for a Cancun hotel or resort?

We are not the spring break type and prefer relative calm. Budget approx. $200/night but less that that would be lovely too.

Thanks.

I'm not sure if you can do nightly but we stayed a week in the Moon Palace. It was freaking amazing.

Have a great trip. Had some great trips to that part of the world. I used to fly to Merida or Cancun and would rent a car. I would drive all over taking in the archeological sights. I especially liked Palenque. Here is Uxmal.

I've stayed at the Hyatt there, usually getting it for much less than $200 by bidding on Priceline. The rooms were very nice and the place pretty quiet, as i recall. It makes a good stop before heading to the airport or heading south.

staying at the Papaya Playa perchance?

for a decently priced Cancun hotel, try downtown. plus, it's not noisy if you get into the city center a bit and off the main drags. you'll be able to walk around the zocalo and still be able to get to the beaches on the strip with a not-too-expensive cab ride (or take the bus). also, try some authentic quintana roo cooking (can't find the restaurant name at the moment but I'll look)

this is the restaurant that has the real deal food:

We are going as a family to the Yucatan this February coming. I've heard that car rental is not a great idea, mainly due to insurance issues. Is this not the case?
Any info appreciated.
And I'm not thread-jacking, I also am looking for Cancun hotels for a few days before heading inland or down the coast.
My parents are flying from the UK and we are coming from the PNW.
Thanks.

I've had a lot of luck with bookit.com for Caribbean hotels/resorts. Great customer service, which I wouldn't have expected from (a) a discounter, or (b) a company based in Panama City Beach (hey, back off... I used to live there).

Thanks, folks. I appreciate all suggestions.

Maco's photo is sweet!

I suspect that after we get the Cancun hotel issue resolved, my next query will revolve around a pocketable camera that's way more portable than my DSLR and significantly better quality than my aging point-and-shoot. Love the idea of photographing the ruins but don't want to worry about/lug a DSLR. There are so many micro 4/3 options, my head is spinning.

But that will be another thread ;)

For a taste of something a little different, consider two nights at the Club Med. It's one of the closest resorts to the airport, and you get to meet some interesting people from around the world.
