Customer service is the first thing you think of when staying at a Ritz and this hotel does not disappoint. The service was as good if not better than any hotel I have stayed. Special kudos to Jose at the door, Daniel by the pool, and Jocelyn in customer service. Prior to our arrival, I arranged several special services and...

The Ritz has a top class swimming pool and beach and the service at both is top notch. The tennis courts are in excellent condition but one hour of play is too pricey. The gym has most things you need and the sauna and steam room are first class. Unlike most hotels the latter are very well maintained and give...

By far the Service is what makes this hotel so great! We had a very nice relaxing time and enjoyed two fantastic dinners at Fantino. The chef and the servers were so polite and attentive. The second time we went the chef cooked a tasting menu of his choice for my husband and went out of his way to create...

We stayed on the 8th floor Club Level. The food preparations were lovely. Even though the hotel seemed empty there were plenty of hotel workers in club level, at the pool, and in the spa. The building was pristine and filled with European antiques, paintings, and chandeliers. My room was a bit warm at times but we requested a stand...

I wish there was a 3.5-star rating, as this hotel is above average and below "very good". Either way, it's below what I've come to expect from a Ritz Carlton experience. As others have mentioned, the hotel is outdated - even with recent renovations (large metal room key and safe key, slow internet). The staff was friendly and requests were...

We loved the Cancun Ritz Carlton! The service on the club floor was exceptional! The rooms have been renovated this year. The view from our ocean view room with a balcony was fabulous and very private. Even the pool service was exceptional. The Fantino restaurant in the hotel was one of the best experiences of my life....amazing service!

The property a little outdated and stuffy. The service is great as well as food options. The biggest disappointment was the store at Ritz Carlton that sold me silver jewelry at a price higher than Tiffany's and later, after it broke, I found out the silver was fake. Stores like that probably shouldn't be selling in Ritz.

We've now spent two get-aways here at the Ritz-Carlton in Cancun and we'll come back again. We love the property. We particularly like the beach casitas which create a really fantastic full day experience along the beach ... with shade, hammocks, electrical outlets as well as double-size lounge chair, etc. They've changed our relationship with a day at the beach...

At the end of our 2 month stay in Merida, we joined friends in Cancun who were staying here. Our room was okay-standard traditional but we had a gorgeous view of the pool and the ocean. The bathroom was small with a bath and shower along with the toilet separate as it is in Europe which I like. The counter...

We did a bit of a last minute getaway here the week of 9/22. The season is slow and so the hotel was not very crowded as a result. They were doing construction on some portions of the hotel but to tell you the truth if I wasn't told about it, I may never have noticed. From the moment we...
