The Westin is a great place for a family vacation. Located on the Yucatan Peninsula, the resort is bordered by the gorgeous Caribbean Sea. Modern, chic villas have studio, one- or two-bedroom layouts, all featuring kitchenettes or kitchens, DVD players and washer/dryers. Four onsite restaurants offer a myriad of cuisines, including American and Mexican. One bistro even provides beach service, so your family can stay on the beach all day.
The Westin has a few huge pools, one of which is a serene beachfront infinity pool. Children will enjoy the onsite playground, and a miniature golf course is steps away. Nearby, vendors rent out water sports equipment that will enhance your beach days. There are also many area hiking and biking trails. The Cancun area has many tourist attractions, perfect for families. Explore the ancient Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza or visit the Museo de Arte Popular.

The Westin Lagunmar is by far the most beautiful resort we have had the pleasure of staying at. We stayed here for 2 weeks and as we were trading timeshares we were able to secure a one bedroom for one week and a studio for the other. So this review will cover both. The staff especially, Hector, prior to arrival was emailing to make contact and introduce the options and see if we had questions or required anything special. He escorted us to our suite on our arrival and He continued to ensure throughout our stay that we were happy and well taking care of. A very special efficient and remarkable way to be treated. The rooms both were very cleaned well stocked great space, beautiful furnishings and extremely comfortable. Loved the jet tubs! Beach chairs and BBQ's were always available and staff were there for anything you needed. What ever we need thru maintenance was quickly taken care of. I cant say enough wonderful things about this resort other than stay here and enjoy the resort, the location (perfect) the beach and ocean, and most importantly the staff at all levels.
Thank you Westin Lagunamar and thank you Hector for making our two weeks there so amazing. We shall be returning
First time in Cancun so can't compare to other places to stay but we loved the Westin Lagunamar. Great location with terrific beach and pools. Right across from upscale mall with plenty of restaurants to choose from.
