Paradisus Riviera Cancun Resort

Paradisus Riviera Cancun has a lot in its favor. Begin with its membership in The Leading Hotels of the World, and Leading Spas of the World. Next is a terrific location – in the private peninsula of Puerto Morelos, on a long stretch of beautiful beach, just about 20 minutes south of the Cancun airport. ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION has been inspecting Paradisus Riviera Cancun for nearly a decade. Between years of re-inspecting and frequently staying as a guest at the resort we have come to appreciate the level of service and amenities they maintain.


Not only is Paradisus Riviera Cancun an all Junior Suite resort, we admire the Mediterranean style resort which makes innovative use of water, landscape, palapas thatched roofs, and original furnishings. If all this is not quite enough for your expected level of service – there can be more. Adults can upgrade their amenities, brands of beverages and service with the indulgent Royal Service. Families can spoil parents and kids alike with Paradisus’ Family Concierge Service. We’ll tell you all about the exclusive services throughout this review.


We rate the cuisine as very good here including the buffet, but particularly the 5 reservation required a la carte restaurants. Drink brands at the 7 bars are rated okay to good by us. They do not measure up to the 5 Star hotel standards until you upgrade to the Royal Service.


There are plenty of tempting activities to partake in starting with four swimming pools, 2 tennis courts, life enriching classes like wine tasting, and tango lessons. We highly endorse the beautiful Spa, thus the high recognition it has earned. Of course Paradisus provides 24-hour room service and nightly entertainment in an enclosed theater.


There is a whole lot more to Paradisus Riviera Cancun, so read on and we will detail everything you will want and need to know about this 4 ½ Star Riviera Maya resort.
