I saw one of the reviews mention the guests walked here from their resort. What are some of the closer resorts?
Taxis are fine as long as you agree on a price beforehand plus they will wait to take you back to your resort just so they get the fare. Much less stressful unless you are used to the bus system.
The closest hotels to the ruins are Iberostar, Crown Paradise, GR Solaris, Grand Oasis Sens, Solymar and Family Resort. They are in my opinion a little ragged except for Iberostar Cancun. Iberostar Cancun is huge, you’ll do a lot of walking but they have many choices of restaurants and activities. You’ll get tons of exercise so no need for the gym if you stay there. The other resorts may be to your liking, totally a personal opinion. They are all budget price hotels. I know I sound bad but I can’t see my self spending so much money to get there and then be so unhappy because I chose a dirty hotel. I’m picky and I know it. But if you take the time and read as many hotel reviews as you can you get a better picture of the hotel and what your options are. Remember all the reviews here are only from past guest. Not advertisers, you’ll get true answers. In my opinion the best hotel in the Hotel Zone is Hyatt Ziva. Ive been going to Cancun for over 10 years and it’s by far over all the best I have enjoyed. If you want to enjoy yourself in Cancun, read the reviews!!!!
Yep, take the bus! It’s cheaper and interesting to people watch. You really get to be with the locals, lovely people. So warm and friendly.
Crown Paradise is right opposite it, literally a minute walk
We stayed at the JW Marriott and for 13 pesos per person you can ride the hotel zone buses the length of the zone.
