This is my favorite Starwood property in N.A. First time we went in 2014, we booked with Starwood points, and we are glad that we booked this instead of the other Westin property south of the Zona Hotelera.
Amenities wise, this resort has it all; multiple on-site restaurants, fancy water activities, infinity pool, swim up bars, fantastic views from every room, and state of the art rooms.
You can spend an entire week just hanging out in the property. This resort also has a vacation rental program, so you will see a lot of people staying here for an extended period of time. With a little grocery store and ample parking, you can easily spend a week here without getting bored.
Right across the street is the shopping mall La Isla, where you can find an abundance of restaurants, shopping options, and attractions. This property is located almost in the middle of Zona Hotelera, therefore the downtown Cancun or the El Ray ruins are easily accessible either by bus or car. R1 and R2 bus stops are right in front of the hotel entrance.
Overall, if staying in Cancun, and an SPG loyal, choose this one over the other property down south. You won’t regret.
