It's the RITZ- what do you expect! The staff is exceptionally hospitable. We had an Ocean facing room, so we woke up to turquoise blue waters. The beach in front of the hotel is clean and quiet. The evenings are crowded with the hotel guests- but that cant be helped, and its really ok. The hotel building( front the outside)...

The beach here is amazing just like any of the hotels on this strip and the pool is pretty decent. The rooms and the resort itself are a bit dated, they still had physical keys to open the doors! Nice big rooms though and the staff were always friendly, I was either out or drunk must of the time I...

With Ritz Carlton, you know what you are getting. First, let me say I had no desire to go to Cancun, but a family member had business there and did not want to be alone. Check-in: fast, friendly and upgraded from a regular ocean view suite to a huge suite (6027) that included a separate dining room in the entry,...

Having stayed in a few lovely hotels in Mexico we were looking forward to staying at the "superior" Ritz Carlton. I can honestly say I have never been so disappointed in a hotel ever! The service was poor and that isn't even included! Paying top end prices for drink and what can only be described in less than average food...

This was a conference venue and consequently heavily discounted. Even so rates were up there so expectations were high. On the plus side rooms were great , facilities immaculate and staff lovely and couldn't be more helpful. When I was languishing with gastro upset ( I am sure not the result of the hotel )and feeling very sorry for myself,...

Just returned home from 5 days at the Ritz in Cancun. Out of our total experience there were only 3 good things about the Ritz in Cancun. The Staff were excellent. Very courteous bi lingual for the most part but very very accommodating. The seaside restaurant on the beach was very reasonable for pricing. Security at the Hotel was excellent....

Loved our spring vacation at the Ritz Cancun. We stayed for 8 nights in a club-level ocean front room and couldn't have been happier. Our room was renovated, which I believe all club rooms have been. We stayed on the 8th floor which is where the club lounge is located. I was impressed with how quiet the rooms were. We...

We spent 5 nights at the Ritz. The hotel is the typical Ritz style property. It is a comfortable and predictable experience. The staff was consistently friendly and frequently showed the classic Ritz mentality of going the extra mile to ensure all issues were address. The facility does not blend with the community, but we all know that when we...

This is our 5th March trip to this property and it never disappoints. The staff is wonderful service is always excellent. This year we were accompanied with some friends and they too will make this a recurring destination. The kids like the choices poolside. There's enough variety to keep us satisfied for 7 days.

Great property in really lively part of the city....but the beach was not private. We had to wear wristbands so we were identified as guests of the hotel but there were plenty of people without them using the chair service. They didn't do the best job of getting sand out of the hotel bathtub. The water felt grainy and dirty....
