Fodor's Expert Review Iberostar Cancún

Blvd. Kukulcán, Km 17, Cancún, Quintana Roo, 77500, Mexico

Since every standard room has an ocean view, the Caribbean plays a central role at this all-inclusive resort. Set amid 150 lush acres, the tropical setting—complete with palapa huts and poolside hammocks—incorporates a series of lavish, interconnected swimming pools that wind through palm-dotted lawns to the beach. Airy, vibrant accommodations are done up in white with a splash of turquoise to match the sea. Guests who want to get more intimate with nature can participate in the resort's turtle-release program (July–Oct.) or work on their swing at the championship 18-hole golf course. For the ultimate in pampering, visit the on-site Sensation Spa. Children 4–12 are kept busy at the Kid's Club, and there's a program for teens 13-17, too.
