Why Stay At Gran Melia Cancun

Picturesque beaches and impressive architecture aside, the Gran Meliá is set just five minutes from Cancún's top shopping and family-style entertainment.

The Scoop

Unique among the cookie-cutter resorts populating the city's Hotel Zone, Gran Meliá Cancún is modeled after the ancient Mayan temples of the Yucatán Peninsula. Backed by the Caribbean Sea, the beachfront resort comprises five pyramids, each decorated with tropical vegetation and a sky-lit garden atrium. The 678 guest rooms are furnished in mostly neutral tones with bright orange accents and private terraces overlooking the Caribbean or the Nichupté Lagoon. The property also includes a spa, a nine-hole golf course, and three pools surrounded by thatched-roof daybeds where you can savor the specialty Meliá Cancun cocktail, made with coconut milk, melon, vodka, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Eight dining options serve a variety of cuisines, ranging from Mexican to Mediterranean.

Insider Tips

Try the balancing massage at the YHI spa, which takes its cues from an ancient Mayan recipe that includes sweet basil, eucalyptus, and rosemary.

Shoppers, take note: Five minutes from the hotel, Plaza Caraco is known for its handmade leather goods and Plaza Flamingo stocks local crafts made by artisans from the Yucatán Peninsula.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Cancún International Airport (CUN) which is approximately 10 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 20 minutes of travel time.

Why We Love Cancún

What was once a spring breaker's go-to destination for debauchery has become the gateway to Mexico's tony Riviera Maya. Beyond the powder-sand beaches and watersports galore are low-key restaurants and cafés, as well as easily accessible archeological wonders like Tulum.
