Always a beach day at Nizuc!

The world’s greatest palapa.

Guest room entrance.

The guest rooms – so many textures!

Just a few hints of color.

Dreamy grounds.

Where’s waldo?

Sunken daybed for relaxing the days away...

The gorgeous Asian restaurant.

Love the walkways.

Inside La Punta Grill – rustic luxury at its finest.

Adult pool, private beach, and La Punta Grill.

An amazing arrival experience – talk about symmetry.

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.
