Highs & Lows

  • The hotel design is spectacular… making use of indigenous materials, native vegetation, water elements, and symmetry .

  • The rooms are huge – mine had a private swimming pool!

  • The two private beaches are a very rare amenity in busy Cancun and make the experience at Nizuc different from any other hotel in the area… you forget you are in Cancun, which can definitely be a good thing!

  • The different bars and lounges around the property made night time at the hotel just as entertaining as the day

  • The property is huge – 29 acres, so getting around can be challenging.
