I have always loved traveling to Mexico. There is something about the people, the culture, and the heritage, that just makes traveling to the area so lovely, but I had no idea that when we recently visited Hotel Xcaret Mexico I would leave loving it more than I already did.
Where do I even start? The staff at this resort go out of their way to treat you as a part of their own family. It has always been one of the many reasons I love traveling to Mexico, but at this resort specifically, you can just feel it in a way that you know they are proud to be there, and you can understand why after visiting.
After landing in the Cancun airport you are greeted by one of the staff from their complimentary airport shuttle. The shuttle is a large comfortable bus with plush seats and a television that provides video of what to expect at the hotel and all of their parks. While aboard the shuttle they take care of a majority of the hotel check in process so when you arrive to the hotel you only have about another 10 minute process before you are officially on your vacation. During this process you receive a wristband that works as your room key, your charging privilege's, and your admission to all 7 of their parks and two tours they offer. That is right, this is a true all inclusive, or as they call it, "All Fun Inclusive Vacation"
The property is completely stunning with an eco-friendly vibe. They have made every effort to design it in a way with sustainability in mind. The buildings work harmoniously with the surrounding nature making the lay out a true paradise. As you walk throughout the property you will discover anything and everything from caves, coves, waterfalls, rivers, lagoons, beaches and jungle areas. You will also find swinging bridges scattered through the property connecting you from one building to the next, restaurants carved into rock, hammocks inside private coves, and an attention to detail that will blow your mind.
The rooms here at Hotel Xcaret Mexico are comfortable and luxurious. They offer a good mix of art, nature and contemporary Mexican design. The hotel offers four different room categories: Suites, Junior Suites, Swim ups, and Master Swim ups. Each room category offers a garden, ocean, river, or pool view. I loved learning that the hotel worked with local craftsman from around Mexico and brought their items into the rooms here. The beds are very comfortable and I always love having a separate rain shower and jacuzzi tub. There is a 55" inch flat screen television, a fully stocked mini bar, Nespresso machine, snacks, and a beautiful balcony with a swinging hammock, a chair and small sitting area with throw pillows. If you are not traveling with family and looking for an adults only type vacation the resort does also offer adult only buildings. Below you will find video of our room which was the garden view suite.
The hotel offers 10 restaurants and 8 bars with something for everyone including an amazing dinner show. There are a few restaurants that require reservations and one that is an additional charge. Room service is also included complimentary 24/7 which is a nice feature when you come back from one of the parks and are exhausted. We took advantage of room service one evening when we wanted dessert and did not want to have it at the restaurant, we wanted to be in our robes, comfy in bed, enjoying television while we ate.
There are a nice variety of choices you can chose from when it comes to where you are going to swim, sunbath or enjoy your water sports here at the hotel. They have a main beach on the ocean that is a little bit of a walk, they have loungers on the rocky portion of the beach where you can not swim but you can be oceanfront relaxing, they have a man-made lagoon type area with waterfalls where you can let the kids run wild and multiple pools around their property. They also have kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkeling in the river part of the man-made area that goes along the property.
For those who like to continue their fitness routine, they can do so in one of the really awesome state of the art gyms here at the hotel. One of the best features of the three gyms is the picturesque views you can focus on while working out. The spa area is built around caves and trees and completely secluded in full blown nature in a way that is in comparison to no other that I have seen before. Each massage room is completely different and some even have personal cenotes.
Why is this the place you should be visiting if you have a family? There are awesome play areas for young children, a water slide area, and that great beach area with no waves so you can relax without the fear of them getting swept away. Included with your stay here is complimentary admission to all seven of their amazing parks. Everyone in your travel party will have unlimited access to the parks Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Xplor, Xplor Fuego, Xavage, Xoximilco and Xenses, as well as tours to Xenotes and Xichen. The hotel has designated shuttles to and from each park as well, making it virtually seamless to not have an insane vacation! Stay tuned for additional blogs on some of the parks we visited while we were there!
This property is an absolute must when you are ready to plan your next trip. From the people, to the property, to the food, to the parks, and everything in between, this place is going to leave its mark on you just like it did on me. The moment we left we were already talking about when we could get back here with the rest of our family.
