JW Marriott, Cancun: A Luxury Family-Friendly Vacation
Sometimes that super-romantic week alone is nearly impossible to get, so instead of just packing up the kids and heading to the relatives, go to Mexico. The JW Marriott is a high-end resort brand that has done a great job of creating a friendly resort experience in a large hotel. Since Marriott is a well-respected American chain, you are sure to be pleased with the service and amenities. Each of the 448 well-appointed rooms have private balconies with stunning views of Cancun’s white sand beaches and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.
Scores of savvy travelers rely on Marriott’s consistent standard of excellence when they travel. Since traveling to a foreign country can be stressful in itself, staying at a hotel chain as well respected as Marriott can take a lot of pressure off travelers’ expectations. With Marriott, you know you will get high standards of service and amenities. And you can cash in or earn Marriott points.
Many don’t know that Marriott owns the coveted Ritz Carlton hotels, and it so happens that the JW Marriott is the highest-ranking hotel brand in the family next to the Ritz Carlton. What does that mean for you? It means that you are sure to get a luxury experience with a more budget-conscience focus. This is ideal when vacationing with the family.
Along with stunning seaside lounging, just feet from the warm Caribbean waters, there are two outdoor pool areas overlooking the sea. One is adults-only and is a wonderful place to find some peace and quiet—because grown up time is important, especially on vacation. If you really want to splurge, order a seaside massage, where your therapist leads you to a private cabana overlooking the pristine beach and spends an hour massaging away all your stress and tension. Follow that by a margarita and nap and your day is perfect.
Spend time with the kids in the family-friendly outdoor pool. For families with young adults who want a bit more privacy, another fabulous option is to get a room with a shared door. Adults and teens will have their own entrances and you can enjoy some privacy while still staying connected with your kids.
This resort in Cancun boasts an internationally recognized spa that specializes in ancient Mayan treatments. And for those of you who love to swim but don’t want too much sun, they have a beautiful indoor swimming pool for your pleasure.
From fine dining in Gustino Italian Grill, to poolside snacking at the Beach Walk, the dining options are great for a big group on the go. Because of the many dining choices, there really is no need to leave the property. The JW Marriott in Cancun is the ideal destination for busy families who want to get away—but not too far away.
