I enjoyed my stay at the Ritz, though it, and Cancun, are everything I try to avoid in a resort.
Cancun resembles the tackiest part of Miami and even predominant language of both is Spanish. Like Miami, Cancun also has the world’s worst immigration, with intolerably long lines.
The Ritz is a big formal old building with 375 rooms, built in the style of the original Boston Ritz plunked on a wide white beach. With the sea beyond.
The building and the rooms are totally devoid of anything to indicate it or you are in Mexico.
The property is 20 years and management has said all will be redone in 2014. It is in need of it
Eating tacos at Casitas, or on the sand at the beach was the high point of the stay, though breakfast buffets were world class.
The club level was spacious and there seemed to be ever changing snacks available most of the day. Very pleasant.
The building was deigned with airy lobby and central core that makes one fell expansive but the corridors to the rooms were LONG.
The staff took what would have been to me a drab experience and lifted it to the cloud. They were very friendly, very accommodating and always made me feel welcome, though at times they came over as slightly obsequious. The staff is always to me the sign of good ever present management..
Bottom line, if one chooses to try the beach in Cancun, they should Put on the Ritz.
