I would love to give this place a 5 star rating but sadly I can’t. The facility is beautiful as are the rooms. The pool area is vast and gorgeous over looking a beautiful beach. Where this place falls short is in its food choices and pool personnel. We have been here a week and are frankly sick of the lack of restaurant choices and the menus. The Beachwalk Cafe, which services the pool area has a very limited, overpriced menu. Therefore we went to the grocery store and bought some snacks and my husband bought some beer so that we didn’t have to have a $200 food bill everyday. We were then told that the pool belonged to the Beachwalk Cafe and you couldn’t have your own food at the pool and would have to take it down to the beach. In what world does a hotel not allow you to use the pool if you have snacks with you? I’m paying to stay at the JW Marriott and not at the Beachwalk Cafe. If this is how it is then we needed to be told at check-in that in order to use the pool area, you must purchase food from the Beachwalk Cafe and only from there. I understand that times are hard right now and they need money but that sure doesn’t prompt me to purchase more food from them. To the contrary, I won’t spend another dollar anywhere at this hotel. Just to be clear, I have purchased food everyday I’ve been to the pool but clearly not as much as they feel I need to. We have also eaten at the deli several times and at their very limited choices of restaurants several evenings. The women’s restroom at the pool is also disgusting. So much so that I will go all the way up to our room as not to have to use it. It’s a beautiful hotel but I won’t be back and it gives the Marriott brand a bad name to treat their guests this way.

I agonized over the decision of staying at JW vs Ritz...picked the JW and it was the right decision. There’s a few things here that won’t be at the Ritz- club music in the lobby and kids/more family feel...but as a couple, we were able to relax no problem and overall seems like more value for your $$$ here. The rooms are a highlight- clean, spacious and new with angled private balconies all with ocean front views, comfortable beds and huge shower that could fit 5 people. The beach is clean- no seaweed, clear water but can be a bit rough. I feel like the staff here provided service that was comparable to Ritz properties I have stayed at previously. Everyone said hello, asked how we were doing and how they could help. There was always attention to detail too- for example, my girlfriend had a coffee in the AM that was pretty weak...we told Abiel on the beach and he brought us a strong latte with an extra shot. They listen to you here and work very hard. I would be remiss if I also did not single out concierge Angel. I tried desperately, as did a few others, to make special anniversary reservations at a famous restaurant in Cancun but with no success. After a few minutes with Angel, he fixed it for us. Our last night in Cancun will be spectacular thanks to him going above and beyond to help guests. Lastly, I stayed here during COVID. As a doctor, I felt very safe...but also able to enjoy vacation and forget about the craziness in the world for a few days.

The service was impeccable, Club 91 was fantastic, the suite upgrade made the trip perfect, and the pool and people were amazing! Shout out to Marco and Francisco in Club 91, Luis and Rogelio in the Concierge, and all of the poolside staff who left us wanting for nothing! Rosa Negra and Sasi Thai were outstanding off property meals. We will be back!

We normally enjoy JW around the world but this one has the best spin class with an awesome instructor Daniel. I highly recommend booking classes if you like to stay active and healthy dusting your stay here in Cancun. They follow COVID protocols and is a wonderful facility for massages as well. Use the Mywellness app to reserve it

Great spot and better people. We went as a family for a covid boredom trip and really enjoyed the hotel. We were on the club level and our kids had a normal room. the club was really nice and everyone very friendly; maybe a little too rule driven. the pool area is really nice and my wife and I liked the fact that there is an adult pool. We really only experienced one of the restaurants; Gustino's, but it was really good. The staff are very friendly and seem to be genuinely happy that you are there. Highly recommend this hotel and we will be back next time in Cancun.
