Ferries to Isla Mujeres are just steps away from this resort, as it neighbors one of Cancún's main piers, El Embarcadero. However, this location also means that the beach here is quite small and there are often boats passing by. A family-friendly hotel, there's a roomy kids' clubhouse with a small play area outside. There are also frequent activities going on in the resort's sole pool area, which can be a drawback if you want some poolside peace and quiet. But you can
always escape to the spa, where the cold-water plunge, steam room, sauna, and Jacuzzi are all free of charge. It's one of the few hotels in Cancun to offer smoking and non-smoking rooms, but all have white marble floors and orange stucco walls. The suites, which come with private Jacuzzis, are a luxurious splurge. There are time-share salespeople in the lobby here.
