Why Stay At Grand Residences Riviera Cancun
No expense was spared at this luxurious resort in order to create this serene hideaway protected by a peaceful nature reserve.
Away from the din of bustling Cancún and Playa del Carmen, Grand Residences is close to quaint Puerto Morelos. Gleaming white Colonial-style haciendas set right on the beach house some of the most spacious suites around. No cookie-cutter design here: Accommodations are warmly appointed featuring special touches like artistic tile work and hand-carved wooden cabinets. Each suite is decked out with an abundance of conveniences such as private patios, kitchenettes and separate seating areas. Lounge on the sun-drenched deck around the four large infinity pools or on the sugary white beach. Beach butlers keep you hydrated with drinks from the aptly named Heaven Bar. Active types can ask staff at the designated sports desk about bike rentals, boogie boards and sail boats. Batteries tapped out? The spa specializes in soothing massages and rejuvenating body wraps (we recommend Jade, Gold and Silver). Dinner is equally tranquil at on-site El Faro Grill where you can either watch the chefs at work in the show kitchen or simply gaze at the breathtaking ocean view from the outdoor dining terrace.
Pre-order groceries online from the resident gourmet food market and find your fridge stocked upon arrival.
Keep your offspring entertained with sandcastle building and treasure hunts organized by the Kids' and Teens Club.
Arrive at Cancún International Airport (CUN) which is approximately 16 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 25 minutes of travel time.Boulevard El Cid Unidad 28 Lote 1, Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Why We Love Puerto Morelos
The laid-back fishing village constitutes a welcome respite from busy Riviera Maya hubs. The sheltered stretch of coastline is dotted with well-maintained powdery beaches and calm clear waters make snorkeling the nearby reef easy even for beginners.
Av. Ninos Heroes SM2 M6 L14, Puerto Morelos.
Where to Drink: Flickering candlelight sets the relaxed mood in the comfy tucked-away garden-like courtyard at Tanino's Wine Lounge. Take your pick from the extensive wine selection including well-aged Mexican Nebbiolo and chocolaty Chilean Carménère. Drinks for two $15.
