I have a question that I've researched, but I need more information from people who work in the hotels in Cancun or know the standards that hotels take. We will be staying at the Hyatt Regency Cancun for the first week of September. This will be our first time visiting Mexico.
I've read here that the Cancun hotel zone uses a water filtration system to treat the water. Most of the responses seem to be "the water is fine," yet I have read so many restaurant reviews of people who eat or drink in the hotel zone and have still gotten traveller's diarrhoea. I would like to know more detail. Such as, if the water is safe to drink than why does our hotel provide complimentary bottled water for teeth brushing? This only makes me question the effectiveness of this water filtration system.
Our hotel also treats salads and raw vegetables to reduce risk of illness even further. This is very reassuring and makes me feel much better about the food, but I am still somewhat uneasy about the water or ice.
Thanks for your input.
