In recent years, Cancun has transformed from a budget-friendly resort town to a city filled with pricey, luxury resorts. While the luxury resorts are absolutely phenomenal, they aren’t exactly easy on the wallet. And, even if you can afford to splurge on a vacation at five-star property, it doesn’t mean you always want to go that route. For a vacation on a tight budget, here are some affordable beach hotel, in Cancun:
Aquamarina Beach Hotel Cancun: A small, family-friendly resort on the northern portion of Cancun’s hotel zone, facing Mujeres Bay. This resort has an all-inclusive option, if you’d like to have all meals included in the price of your room. There is a marina at this hotel, but the beach and view are still nice. The hotel is right on the bus route, which makes it easy to get to the nightclubs, restaurants, or shopping malls.
Bellevue Beach Paradise: This high-rise hotel is located at the southern end of Cancun’s hotel zone, only about 15 minutes from the airport. Bellevue Beach Paradise is beachfront, all-inclusive resort that faces the Caribbean Sea.
Flamingo Cancun Resort: An older resort in the heart of Cancun’s hotel zone. This all-inclusive resort is located right across the street from Flamingo Mall, where several popular restaurants, like Outback Steakhouse and Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, are located. Flamingo Cancun is right on the beach, facing the Caribbean Sea.
Ocean Spa Hotel: Located right next door to Aquamarina Beach Hotel Cancun. This small hotel was recently remodeled and now has lovely room as well as a very nice spa, for a moderately priced hotel. The resort offers an all-inclusive option, for guests that wish to have meals and drinks included in the cost of their room.
Park Royal Cancun: This all-inclusive resort is a short walk from La Isla Shopping Village and there is a small site of Mayan ruins on the hotel grounds. For many years, the Park Royal Cancun has had one of Cancun’s best beaches. That is still the case, today. The hotel has two towers, whose shapes were inspired by Mayan pyramids. From each guest room, there is a view of the Caribbean Sea and Nichupte Lagoon. There are suites on either end of each tower and those rooms have either a view of the sea or the lagoon.
