Cancun Bay Resort

The Cancun Bay Resort is incredibly tropical. Think in-water cocktails, sea views and massages on the beach.

The hotel’s style is modelled on its beachfront setting. A lagoon-like pool faces the sand and there’s a thatched-roof bar just steps from the water. The rooms are splashed with lime-green walls, runners and cushions.

The pool’s so large it’s split into sections. As well as a children’s play area and an adults-only whirlpool, there’s a swim-up bar.

In the evening, the buffet restaurant takes on a different theme and barbecues are held regularly. And after that, Tequila flows at the poolside bar, where entertainment takes place.

Overview of Cancun

Holidays to Cancun pack in plenty of action and adventure. The white-sand beaches are some of the best in the world, but there are also modern shopping malls, lively nightlife venues and Mayan ruins nearby.

Cancun used to be a small fishing village in the 1970s, but now it’s the most popular destination with people looking for holidays to Mexico. The downtown area’s full of markets and local cantinas, while the hotel zone by the Cancun Bay Resort is home to plenty of restaurants, shopping malls and nightclubs.

Things to do in Cancun

The Cancun Bay Resort is at the top of Cancun’s hotel zone. This is a great location for families, as the waters outside the hotel are some of the quietest in Cancun, so every member of the family can paddle safely.

You’re also only a 10-minute cab ride away from Cancun’s main hub of bars and restaurants. This is a great spot for shoppers, and there’s a place to suit every budget, from Coral Negro Flea Market to La Isla Shopping Village.

If you’d like a spot of culture, you can enjoy a jungle trek or visit Mayan temple buildings. You can even take a day trip to the Unesco World Heritage Site of Chichen Itza. Cancun is a real star of Mexico. You can enjoy a holiday at a pace that suits you in this action-packed destination!

Resort Summary

Cancun has approximately 24 kilometres of beaches, strung along an S-shaped strip of land. The sand here has a unique property – no matter how hot the temperature, it’s always cool on your feet, to the extent locals joke that it is air-conditioned.

Swim, relax and take part in watersports at Playa Las Perlas, Playa Langosta, Playa Tortugas and other beaches on the northern side of the peninsula. Among the popular beaches on the eastern side are Playa Ballenas, Chac Mool and Playa Delfines. Playa Delfines is also a good beach for surfing.

Cancun’s waters are warm enough for swimming throughout the year, even in January and February. During late August and early September you’ll feel like you’re slipping into a warm bath.
