Our Opinion

One of the better options for those looking for a budget-friendly resort in Cancun. The Occidental Costa Cancun is considered one of the better options to stay if you're looking for great value and quality. The resort grounds and rooms are pleasant and well-maintained by equally pleasant and knowledgeable staff. Great options to choose from with regards to food options. There is a 24hr self-serve snack bar -including drinks- that guests can access when the lobby bar closes. The pools are a little on the smaller side compared to other resorts. The resort is located in the heart of the resort strip in Cancun, so a lot of guests do report a lot more noise around the area than most locations. However, it's a great place for young travelers and couples who are looking a great economical resort that's in the heart of the action!


This beautiful beachfront Mediterranean-style resort is set on the sheltered bayside of the Caribbean overlooking Playa Linda. Enjoy renovated rooms decorated tastefully each with a French balcony. Occidental Costa Cancun is distinguished for its excellent service and personalized quality.

Location: On Playa Linda beach, in the heart of Cancun's hotel zone, 5 min to downtown, 25 min from the airport.

Great Vacation!!!

Loved this place! Great customer service all around. Entertainment all through the day and excellent entertainment in the evening. I've been to several places in Cancun and I would have to say this was one of the best times I've had in Cancun. If you are looking for a large beach area, they do no have but you could get in the ocean and that was enough for me

Great Cancun Experience

The overall stay was excellent! All the staff were friendly and helpful. The entertainment committee and the bartenders were awesome. The room was always clean and smelled fresh. Not far from downtown. Awesome trip for families, couples, etc.

Great Affordable Tropical Getaway!

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights to celebrate my birthday in July 2017.Check in was quick and easy. After checking in you sit with a staff member and they review the restaurants and how to go about making a la carte reservations. She will offer free breakfast at another Barcelo resort in exchange for sitting through a presentation with the promise of a voucher for a discount on a future stay (timeshare), we politely declined and she accepted that and we were never bothered again.Food: Breakfast and Lunch at Albatross (the buffet) is basic. It isn't anything exciting, nor was there anything that I could not wait to eat ever day but it was edible and plentiful. However I will say that everything is seasoned well and fairly flavorful, there were only a handful of items I would've called bland. I found breakfast and lunch at Claraboya to be much better (no reservation needed). For dinner, all of the a la carte restaurants were delightful. La Trattoria being my favorite (the gnocchi, and salmon with risotto were delicious), and Claraboya being my second favorite (the teryaki is yummy). For booze, the beer is pretty warm (by american standards), and the drinks can be heavy on the mixer but ask for an extra shot in everything and befriend the bartenders (TIP!)- they aim to please! If you're a heavy drinker bring a yeti, or bubba, or the insulated tumbler of choice from home. The bartenders will make your drink right in your cup of choice and it will stay cold for more than two seconds in the hot Mexican climate! Snack bar- it's 24/7 so set your standards accordingly. We only visited once when we had just missed lunch. It was dry, and stale (hot dogs, burgers, taquitos), but we ate a few things anyway. We showed up a little too early though, because as we were finishing they came an replenished with fresh food. My assumption is they fill 30 minutes or so after a meal ends. Room: AC was FREEZING! This is not a complaint. I cannot sleep in the heat, so knowing every night I was going up to a cold room was such a relief. However, on the occasions when it was *too cold* I found that if we increased the temp in the room the humidity and dampness of the air was very apparent in the room. Beds are firm, pillows fluffy, and the comforter heavy (for those cold AC nights). Rooms were thoroughly cleaned everyday. No complaints about the rooms!Grounds/Pools: grounds are very clean. Pool Great! Beach Great (seaweed cleaned every morning), with a great breeze

50th Birthday Getaway

Had a wonderful time!!!Great place to stay!!! The Bartenders were super quick. Everything was clean and the staff was great. Just wish I didn't have to pay for the Wi-Fi, especially since it didn't work.
