Me and my family loved the hotel, it has an excellent and outstanding service, as well as food and swimming pools. The thing is, we had a very good time here during the period of 8 days we were here. The outcome of this trip was definitely better than we expected. We are a family of four members (2 adults and 2 kids) and all of us had our necessities fulfilled. The staff was wonderful, but we would like to highlight the awesome and careful service Belgica, from the tours department, assisted us, she was very nice and respectful with us. All in all, it was an excellent stay and we would definitely like to come back!!

Hotel's Favorite
I'm a fan and member of the IHG InterContinental collection of hotels. The Presidente InterContinental lived up to the standard I have come to expect from IHG. The hotel is situated on the nicest beach in Cancun. I contacted the hotel Director Guillermo Valencia prior to my stay to inquire about the safety precautions the hotel was taking in light of the pandemic. I am pleased to report that my family and I felt very comfortable our entire stay. All the employees wore face masks and I observed staff members constantly cleaning and sanitizing. The lounge chairs by both pools and the beach were nicely spaced so as to avoid close contact with other guests. I booked 3 rooms and all 3 rooms overlooked the ocean which was as calm as it was rich in beautiful hues of light and dark blue. My family spent most of the time on the hotel grounds at the beautiful beach. We enjoyed our evenings at the outdoor bar. Service on the beach and the outdoor bar was outstanding. I will point out our server on the beach (Freddy) was attentive to all our needs and I would also point out that the outdoor bartender Gonzalo was phenomenal and the service was great. The hotel offers water activities. We went jet skiing, banana boating and Kayaking. As an FYI, the first 30 minutes of kayaking is free. Overall our stay was great and I highly recommend this hotel for those looking for serenity, peace and quite and for some relaxing fun in the sun. I plan to stay here again. Thank you Presidente for a magnificent family vacation!

This is in my opinion the best beach in Cancun. I always stay at President for the beach and the impeccable service at the beach bar. The rooms are simple and clean and the beds are extremely comfortable.

We had a couple of extra days before our longer stay inn Cancun area to an all inclusive hotel, I'm an IHG Spire Elite member and decided to use points and stayed at the Presidente Intercontinental on First week of July, The hotel is an old building probably 25+ years located on a pristine beach location and this was the reason we wanted to visit the hotel, we thought will spend a couple of days at the calm turquoise beach but unfortunately the water was murky and beach wasn't good the time our visit due to recent rainfall and sargazo that is nothing related to the Hotel managment. We arrived to hotel after 9PM and the check inn took 45 mins basically waiting for the two hotel members that were doing the check inn process and the time they spend that wasn't fast, hotel doesn't have a fast check inn for IHG members and/or they dint even recognize you as an IHG until the end of the process when I asked the clerk and said that 's why I was upgraded to Ocean view room Room was nice but small for my opinion and specially for the type of the hotel they claim to be. it has a small refrigerator where you can keep some of the drinks, specially water due there are way overpriced at the hotel ($8-10USD), there is a convivence store not far away where you can buy the water or anything else you wan to bring to the hotel. Hotel has two pools and large pool one of the days wasn't that clean, Also noticed that hotel allow guest to bring dogs which I'm not opposed but is something you don't typically see in Cancun area hotel, this party had a small dog that was nervous all the time and was barking every time that someone was passing by near them. Overall our stay was average, service had ups and downs , Definitely this isn't a hotel I will pay the rate for what they offer and my opinion this Intercontinental is not at same level of the Intercontinental hotels in some other parts of the world

We normally pick this hotel when we come to Cancun, it has been our first choice for several years, not anymore. The check-in and check-out procees took more than expected, the room was old, the pool was not very clean; it is clear that the staff is not enough for the capacity of the hotel. The beach is not clean about the sargazo , which we understand this phenomenon is having a big impact in the whole peninsula, but it can be cleaned. We hope this hotel reconsider the quality of service and the maintenance/renewal issues , so it can return to what we have experienced in our previous stayings. Special thanks to Eleazar for a very good service.
