Presidente InterContinental sits on a wide beach in Cancun. Rooms and suites have a sleek modern decor with views of the sea or lagoon. Rooms with a living area are available. Presidente hosts a restaurant called El Caribeno, and a snack bar directly on the beach. Two pools, one of which is only for adults, are on the premises. Five Jacuzzis are also in the pool area. A variety of water sports equipment can be rented out at the hotel’s marina, which is nearby the hotel. Area restaurants and shops are only a five-minute walk away. Presidente also has an onsite Thrifty car rental desk so your family can venture out to the rest of Cancun and surrounding areas.

Not only is this a beautiful superbly 5***** location, but the best kept secret in Quintana Roo! And the secret? The Lobby bartender Christian makes each guest and visitor feel as though he or she is the only person in the secluded bar. His pleasant attitude, genuine smile, happy demeanor wash away the intensity of a a long day of touring. Christian is a genius at mixology with many lovely tricks as pouring the liquor down a long stir stick to create a waterfall entering your glass, he uses a mild pepper rim coating, rather than crispy salt for margarita rims. When a new bottle of wine needed to be brought from another bar, his profuse apologies for the momentary wait showed exquisite staff training. His smile is meant to make each client feel special. One customer walked in and said, "You know the last time I was here I had a refreshing fruit style cocktail..." No more words needed! Christian said, "I remember!" and decribed it in full detail ... that's perfection!
I almost liked everything here! Similar to almost any other intercontinental. Service was good, room and lounge were nice. And I really enjoyed their pool/beach area. Highly recommend.
The only thing was even though the room was nice enough but it’s not a two room suite and there were not enough privacy for the bathroom/shower area! So it wasn’t ideal for me.
