Gran Caribe Real

Gran Caribe Real on the expanded beaches of Cancun one block from Flamingo Mall, is a solid 4 1/2 Star resort at a reasonable price making it a top value All-Inclusive Cancun resort. ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION stayed at Gran Caribe Real multiple occasions with good satisfaction. Great things are happening here. Since acquiring the property the Real organization has done a magnificent job of updating and enhancing this place. Not once but twice. The hurricanes ruined their first effort. But a huge credit to the owners. The improvements they made the second time around were even greater. Gran Caribe Real picked up another 1/2 point rating. She now earns a 4 1/2 Star rating!

This resort has added new tile, soft goods such as bedding and curtains, flat screen TV's, DVD's, and mini-bars to all of the ocean view rooms. Upon completion of this upgrading, all rooms will have a hammock on the good-size balcony in addition to the existing two chairs and a table. 80% of the rooms are ocean view, junior suites. The remaining rooms were updated after the hurricanes of 2005. Both pool areas have received a facelift with attractive new tile.

Be sure to read the details in the rooms section as there are many nice touches. We are very impressed with the improvements here. The beach has even (finally) been enlarged thanks to the Mexican government dredging and pumping investment. The 3 pool areas appeared to host plenty of happy guests who were not at the beach.
