Fodor's Expert Review NYX Hotel Cancún

Blvd. Kukulcán, Km 11.5, Cancún, Quintana Roo, 77500, Mexico

Editor's Note: This location is reported to be under new ownership and therefore this review may contain inaccuracies.

Formerly the Avalon Grand Cancún, this remodeled hotel is funky and fun, catering to young adults with its chic lounge bar, ambient music, and hot pink billiard tables that match the hotel's bright exterior. All common areas have been completely remodeled, and rooms are set to follow in 2015. At the time of writing, they were rather outdated with dark wood and neutral decoration. Top floor rooms have excellent views, but the spiral staircases in the tower buildings are taxing. There are three restaurants and three pools, with one dedicated for children. The food is very good, or if you've opted for the European Plan, you are within walking distance to restaurants and shops.
