Editor’s Review of Club Med Cancun Yucatan

Opened in 1976, Club Med Cancun Yucatan was one of the first all-inclusive hotels to launch in Cancun. It also catered to affluent adults; in fact, it operated as an adults-only resort for several decades.

Times have changed, just a bit.

In 2005, the resort closed after it was devastated by Hurricane Wilma. When it reopened in 2006 -- following $20-million enhancements -- Club Med Cancun Yucatan began to welcome families with the brand's signature Mini Club, Junior Club Med and Passworld Teen Club.

In 2014, the resort completed another renovation -- this time to the tune of $14 million -- bringing with it 60 Family Suites, accompanied by a new playground; Petit Club Med, the chain's signature program for
... more toddlers; Maya Lounge, with new entertainment; and La Estancia, an Argentinian restaurant.

Visit Club Med Resorts for more information about the brand, which offers more than 65 resorts worldwide. less

Highly recommend Club Med, Cancun! We traveled with our (2) boys, 16 & 18, and LOVED the all-inclusive amenities and the gorgeous beach. First - the beach - YES, the water is that blue and the beach is NOT crowded. The resort ...

All guestrooms offer air-conditioning, coffee machines, in-room safes, mini-fridges, hairdryers, irons and ironing boards, and phones. They also offer desks which double as vanities -- simply flip the mirror up to make it a vanity or down to designate it a desk. Note: Toiletries, -- such as shampoo, body wash, lotion, shower caps and cotton balls -- are provided, but conditioner is not; be sure to bring your own.

In 2014, Club Med Cancun Yucatan welcomed the addition of Aguamarina -- an oceanfront building with 60 Family Suites in two categories: Club and Deluxe (30 of each). It also welcomed a new playground, adjacent to a series of tennis courts next to the building. Family Suites feature balconies or patios with comfy loungers and outdoor showers -- perfect for rinsing sand off little fingers and toes. Rooms on the first floor also include heavenly outdoor cabanas, just steps from the beach. Because Aguamarina is located a short distance from some of the resort's main facilities, this also provides families with peace and quiet at night (though you'll still be able to hear music in the distance on select nights).

Club Family Suites
Club Family Suites are 538 square feet in size and sleep up to six people in one king bed, one sofa bed and two twin beds. The twin beds (which can be connected) are housed in a separate bedroom for kids, while the king bed and sofa bed are located in a master bedroom -- both beds can be privatized by a curtain. Bathrooms are large enough to be separated into three spaces, with a room for the toilet, another for the shower and bathtub, and another for two sinks.

Deluxe Family Suites
Deluxe Family Suites are very similar (though larger at 678 square feet), except they offer two full bathrooms. In the suites, the area with twin beds has a private shower-bath combination, plus a sink. Just outside the bedroom door, there's a small room with a toilet. The large bathroom found in Club Family Suites is the same in Deluxe Family Suites.

Suites 5 Trident Space
These rooms are designed in four variations: Deluxe Room 5 Trident Space, Deluxe Two Bedroom 5 Trident Space, Family Suite 5 Trident Space and Suite 5 Trident Space. The Family Suite 5 Trident Space is a spacious choice for families -- it spans 720 square feet. Plus, all Suites 5 Trident Space Rooms feature continental breakfast, laundry service (additional fee), turn-down service, bathrobes and slippers, mini bars (restocked daily), deluxe toiletries and priority housekeeping.

Jade offers exclusive features to guests, such as an infinity pool, private cabanas, and a pool bar.

Deluxe Rooms include Deluxe Room Oceanfront, Deluxe 2 Bedroom Oceanfront and Deluxe Family Room Oceanfront. Some have connecting capabilities, and all include nightly turndown service, bathrobes and slippers, deluxe toiletries and welcome amenities. Deluxe Rooms also have mini bars.

This group encompasses six designs, including accessible accommodations: Club Room Ocean View, Club Room Private Terrace Sea View, Club Family Room Oceanfront, Club Room, Club 2 Bedroom and Wheelchair Accessible Club Room. These are ideal for families (especially multi-generational travelers), as many units can be divided into two bedrooms. Mini-fridges are also available upon request.
