16 Best Cancun Hotels With Swim Up Rooms


Looking for the best Cancun hotels with swim up rooms?

One of the most popular beach escapes in Mexico, Cancun has long been famous as a party town for university students.

Look beyond that slightly leary reputation, however, and you’ll discover numerous luxurious Cancun all inclusive resorts with swim up rooms – the kind where you wake up, stretch your arms, let lose a few yawns, then wander out the sliding doors and down your private deck into the pool that awaits just outside.

What we like most about the swim up resorts in Cancun is you can be as active (or as inactive) as you like. Most of the best hotels in Cancun with swim up rooms offer a full itinerary of activities, from coastal kayaking to oceanfront yoga – or you can sunbathe by the pool the whole time.

Whether you’re a couple looking for a romantic honeymoon or parents seeking ways to keep the kids busy, there’s a Cancun swim up suite that’s just right for you.

#1 Secrets Playa Blanca Costa Mujeres – One Of The Newest All Inclusive Resorts In Cancun Mexico With Swim Up Rooms.

No kids are allowed at the Secrets Playa Blanca Costa Mujeres, which is one of several brand-new Cancun hotels with swim up rooms. In fact, this World of Hyatt property is not officially opening until December 2023, though we’ve had a sneak peek inside to offer you a preview of what’s in store.

LOCATION | About 12 miles north of Cancun city, this resort has everything on-site to entertain guests.

FACILITIES | The Secrets Playa Blanca Costa Mujeres is not just for adults only. It’s also all inclusive. That means you can eat at more than six restaurants, drink at seven bars and lounges, and enjoy such daily entertainment as cooking classes and archery, all for the price of your room.

In addition to being right on the beach, the hotel has numerous pools where you can bathe in sun-drenched bliss. There will eventually be a spa, fitness centre, and theatre, though these aren’t scheduled to open until May 2024.

Once you’ve worn yourself out kayaking around the coast, there’s an ESPA-branded luxury spa and six different restaurants – our favourite is the Peruvian fine dining establishment Ni.

Meanwhile, you can relax in the spa with a sauna, steam room, treatment rooms and a full-service salon.

#11 Haven Riviera Cancun – Best For Large Swimming Pools.

While all the best Cancun resorts with swim up rooms have pools, not many of them have ones as big as the Haven Riviera, proving that size does matter – at least when it comes to swimming facilities.

LOCATION | One of the more out-of-the-way Cancun hotels with swim up rooms, this resort lies south of the Zona Hotelera. Nearby, you can visit the unique (and slightly bizarre) Xoximilco. With this cruise-meets-local-customs experience, Mexican food, drink, and entertainment are served upon a colourfully lit barge.

FACILITIES | Four gourmet restaurants, a seafood bar, and a buffet hall make up the catering options here, with numerous pools spread across the various levels of the resort where you can take a dip. There’s also a spa, a kids’ club, and our personal favourite: an adults-only rooftop bar with an infinity pool looking out towards the ocean.

ROOMS | The swim up lodgings can accommodate between four and six guests, but they all come with an outdoor hammock where you can snooze between swims.

#15 Grand Park Royal Cancun – Guaranteed Good Views.

Among the longer-lived Cancun hotels with swim up suites, the Grand Park Royal is a solid child-friendly option that isn’t as pricy as some of the glitzier, newer choices along Cancun’s beachfront.

LOCATION | Right in the heart of the Zona Hotelera, this resort is about 25 minutes from downtown Cancun.

FACILITIES | With two outdoor pools, four restaurants, and four bars, this is one of the more modest all-inclusive Cancun hotels with swim up rooms. While the daily activity programme is free, the spa and fitness centre charges an additional fee.

ROOMS | The rooms at the Grand Park Royal are a little old-fashioned compared to most of the options on this list, but not all hotels have ocean views from every lodging as this one does.

Planet Hollywood brings plenty of movie magic to every stay, with the filmic fun guaranteed to appeal to youngsters.

LOCATION | This resort is about 45 minutes from the airport on the northern side of the Costa Mujeres.

FACILITIES | There are numerous food and drink outlets on-site, running the gamut of world cuisines, though perhaps the most apt is the shamelessly calorific burger joint from Guy Fieri. There’s also a spa, a kids’ club, a trampoline park, a lazy river, a small splash park, and several pools.

ROOMS | All purple-coloured rooms feature film-themed decorations – the lightbulb-framed bathroom mirror is one of our favourite tongue-in-cheek touches. Sizes vary from junior suites (two adults, two children) to the producer’s suite (maximum of eight people).

Cancun Hotels With Swim Up Rooms: FAQ

Is it better to stay in the Cancun Hotel Zone?

If you fancy a resort-style vacation with a side of nightlife, then the Hotel Zone might be your perfect match. It’s brimming with luxurious hotels, mouth-watering international cuisine, and vibrant clubs. Plus, you’ll be right next to the beach, perfect for those lazy sunbathing days.

However, if you’re interested in a more authentic Mexican experience, you might prefer staying downtown or exploring lesser-known spots like Valladolid or Merida. The Hotel Zone is undoubtedly convenient, but it’s also somewhat insulated from the local culture.

What time of year is best to stay in Cancun?

If you’re a sun-seeker, the months of December to April are ideal, as they offer the most sunshine and the least rain. However, if you’re looking for a quieter getaway, avoid the spring break season (mid-March to early April).

For those seeking a balance of good weather and fewer crowds, consider visiting in late April to June. Just bear in mind that June to November is hurricane season, so while you might snag a great deal, there’s a risk of stormy weather.

Is Cancun an expensive vacation?

Well, the truth is, it can be as expensive or as budget-friendly as you make it to be. On one hand, luxury resorts, high-end dining, and exclusive experiences certainly come with a hefty price tag. But, on the other hand, it’s perfectly possible to enjoy a budget-friendly trip with affordable accommodation, local eateries, and free or low-cost activities.

How many days is enough for a Cancun vacation?

We recommend spending in Canucn at least one week. This provides ample time to soak up the sun on the famous Cancun beaches, explore the vibrant local culture in downtown, take a day trip to the Mayan ruins of Tulum or Chichen Itza, and even swim in the unique cenotes.

But remember, this is your vacation, and the “perfect” duration is what feels just right for you!

How much money will I need for a week in Cancun?

Budgeting for a vacation in Cancun can vary greatly depending on your travel style and preferences. If you’re planning to stay in luxury resorts, dine in high-end restaurants, and indulge in exclusive experiences, you might need to budget around $200-$300 per day.

However, if you’re more of a budget traveller, staying in more affordable accommodation, eating at local spots, and opting for free or low-cost activities, you could get by on $50-$100 per day.

Do I need a passport to go to Cancun?

Absolutely you’ll definitely need a passport to travel to Cancun from any foreign country, even from the US. So, make sure your passport is up-to-date, and there are enough empty pages for any new exciting stamps you might get!

Cancun Hotels With Swim Up Rooms: Final Word

As you have probably realised by this point, Cancun hotels with swim up rooms are no-holds-barred affairs that specialise in offering all-inclusive stays packed with themed restaurants, daily activities, and plenty of pools where you can cool off from the Mexican sun.

For indulgent, carefree relaxation, there are few better places to spend a week – or perhaps even two!
