Our Opinion

Located at the edge of the main strip, the Holiday Inn Cancun is an OK resort. This is definitely a better option for those looking for a short stay in Cancun. The majority of staff here are friendly and pleasant. This hotel has an all-inclusive option, and there are some do's and don'ts for certain guests, making it sometimes a bit of a hassle. The all-inclusive options when it comes to food is adeqaute. This resort is a great option for families or those looking for a quieter stay in Cancun. However, because of its location, its options, and price, there are a lot more suitable resorts to choose from that are of better value.

Mediterranean style property, stands out as one of the best values in the hotel zone, with a charming atmosphere and surrounded by tropical gardens.

Location: Beachfront, 20 minutes from the Cancun International Airport, just a few steps away from Cancun Hotel Zone.

Typical Holiday Inn

Ok pool, large rooms with standard holiday inn decor, comfy beds and nice view from the balcony. Free wifi and easily accessible, only a bus ride away from the town centre. Breakfast was good with lots of choices.

Not recommended

We stayed one night and were glad we hadn’t booked any more. We had no bath towels in our room on arrival at 7pm and after waiting two hours for reception to send some, I had to go down to get them as we needed a shower after a long day sightseeing in hot and sticky temperatures. Restaurant with a sea view wasn’t opened for dinner, instead we asked for a bar snack and were told none were available. Given the option of a meal in the theatre restaurant (hot, claustrophobic and with a loud Mexican show) or order room service. Decided on room service which took an hour to send our order of hot chips and nachos and all food was soggy as it was covered in cling wrap. Buffet breakfast was good though and had a lovely sea view. Rooms were surprisingly quiet for a large hotel with long corridors.

Very Basic, Small Property.

I do not recommend this property. Definitely not a resort! The pool is very small. Dinner was always s late, too much Mexican Food, very little variety. It was clean and on the water. It was inexpensive.

very good

Good location easy bus service to use.the staff were very helpful at all times. the food was good all the waiters were extremely pleasant and helpful especially David and Gerado. the entertainment staff were excellent during the day : angela, ayvani and luis. Found the reception staff very unproffesional and unhelpful one day where I had to wait 1 half hours just for a token for the washing machine. the room was big and nice shower. They also did not have any facilities to change money and were not helpful at all on my first day, so I had to take a taxi down town to change money. over all good hotel lots to do during the day

Quick stay

My husband and I stayed one night before we headed over to Cozumel. The room is huge! It has a fridge, cook top stove, microwave, mini coffee pot and even a blender! We didn't make it to the pool, but it was very busy. There is also a beach that seemed nice. The food was ok.
