Forget everything you think you know about Cancun, and open your eyes to one of the world’s brightest blue beaches, with roaring waves and cool-to-the-touch, powder-white sand. With luxuriously modern accommodations and seriously delicious and authentic international dining options just steps from the sea, this oceanfront locale is the perfect vacation spot if you simply want to treat yourself this spring.

Just a two-hour flight from Orlando and Tampa, Cancun is Mexico’s gem of a city located on the northeast coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, nestled on the pristine Caribbean Sea. With Mayan ruins that whisper of the land’s ancient civilization to the exhilarating night life of the city itself, Cancun beckons you to discover today’s modern luxury that harkens back to the wonders of Mexico’s intriguing culture.

For an unequivocally fabulous stay in opulence, JW Marriott Cancun Resort and Spa is your number-one destination for a Cancun getaway. Unlike all-inclusive resorts, the JW Marriott Cancun is the right-to-choose resort… With a wondrous variety of eateries and activities on and near the property, you have the privilege to choose to use any of the amazing places to dine on premisses or the lux, Miami-style shops and restaurants across the street with romantic bay views.

After the Marriott Cancun’s convenient shuttle service picks you up from the airport, you’ll step foot into the resort’s contemporary yet authentic lobby, which is just the beginning of the Marriott’s recent $40 million renovation of its 447 ocean-facing guest rooms and suites. Influenced by the Mayan culture and Mexico’s natural beauty, the lavish overhaul, led by Martha Gaos and Claudia Gonzalez of G+G Interiorismo, fashions calming colors and textures into a soothing atmosphere that echoes the resort’s vibrant ocean views, with the usual indulgence of the JW Marriott brand that guests have come to know and love. 

The JW Marriott Cancun is truly an escape from the ordinary, with architecture and interior design that will transport you to the heart of Cancun’s abundant history and captivating location. Each rooms showcases a delicate balance of warm, beachy earth tones and cool hues of seascape turquoise, which bring the Mexican Caribbean to life. Every corner of the resort is true to Cancun’s rich culture, including authentic Mexican textiles and materials, reclaimed wood accents, and herringbone-patterned floors designed by locals.

Enjoying the afternoon at the resort’s amazing grand pool laguna is a treat to the senses; even unwind in the mesmerizing infinity pool. Of course, nearby is the never-ending beach with its crystal clear waters, which you’ll want to experience for a relaxing few hours of paradise. Reserve a cabana for an even more tranquil waterfront day in the sand. For a lovely lunch or dinner by the beach, the Marriott’s American restaurant, BeachWalk, offers both pool and beachside service, with scrumptious sandwiches, salads, and tropical cocktails.

The BeachWalk terrace has also cooked up an invigorating dining experience called the Four Hands Dinner. This eating concept that originated in Spain has become a popular dining style on an international scale, as it showcases two different chefs who work together to create a multi-course dinner, complimenting each other’s talents and tastes. Recently launched this year, the Marriott’s version of the Four Hands Dinner is a new monthly dining option and a twist on the chefs’ traditional menu, tempting you with an exciting gastronomic fusion wonderfully paired with wine.

Delicious breakfast awaits you at the onsite Sedona Grill, which opens to gorgeous views of the pool area. This is a great place to sample local, authentic Mexican dishes, and you can begin your morning with a filling Mexican breakfast buffet. The newly renovated private Club 91 is another breakfast spot to try for your first real taste of Mexico. 

If you are in the mood for an evening of indulgence, Club 91 is your place to kick back in sophistication and style. With the exclusivity of a private club, Club 91 is complete with the luxury services that one would expect from JW Marriott.

Perhaps the most tantalizing feature of the Marriott Cancun is its recently debuted 150 Margaritas menu at the JW Lobby Bar.  The bar’s skilled team of expert mixologists and tequila connoisseurs have passionately worked to fashion a menu that features 150 margaritas in four categories: Classic, Modern, Fusion, and Exotic. Your Instagram feed will be thirsty for a post of one of any of the 150 decadent drinks. Each margarita is crafted with silver, reposado, and añejo varieties of tequila, as well as mescal, and some are even infused with exotic ingredients such as chili peppers, beetroot, and black tea.

Lose yourself in the tranquility of Cancun in the resort’s 30,000 square foot spa, featuring an array of spa treatments, a beautiful steam room, an Olympic-size pool, and tennis courts. Rated one of the top spas in Mexico, the Marriott Cancun’s spa with natural Mayan influence is where you’ll find the most sophisticated massages, body wraps, manicures, pedicures, and other services. The Spa’s famous 50-minute, Mayan-inspired massage is a not-to-be-missed addition to your vacation that will leave you completely rejuvenated.

The magic of the Caribbean Sea will definitely be the highlight of you trip to Cancun. From the soft, warm sand to the foaming waves extending to an endless horizon, you’ll want to spend your hours soaking in the breathtaking views of these exotic waters. What better way to see the beautiful blue sea of the Mexican Caribbean than from the comfort of a yacht? Experience a four-hour tour that will take you through the Cancun seas and on a journey unlike any other.

After your time sailing the Gulf of Mexico, you’ll probably be hungry for some fresh seafood, and Mar-bella Rawbar & Grill, one of Cancun’s widely known restaurants, is one of the region’s finest, with views that pair as well with the menu as the wine. The open-air dining, the beach, the swaying palms, and even the fresh-from-the-sea dishes all combine to create the most relaxed, romantic atmosphere for you and your special someone.

An evening at Sedona Grill is an evening spent enjoying the fullness of Mexico’s spicy and savory culinary tradition. Using local ingredients, the chefs concoct a variety of mouthwatering Southwestern fusion dishes with a classic Mexican twist. From an exquisite raw bar to signature Mexican plates and even a dinner buffet, you’ll experience a taste of both the sea and shore as the Mexican sun sets on another day of tropical bliss.

Rosa Negra is another stunning dining location for authentic Latin American cuisine. This waterfront restaurant features incomparable views of Nichupte Lagoon, with wooden decks over the water. With eclectic dishes from countries like Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, Peru, and Argentina, Rosa Negra’s international menu offers exciting flavors accompanied by live music from a local DJ. 

Wherever your Cancun adventure takes you, you’ll want to make the JW Marriott Cancun Resort and Spa your paradisiacal home away from home as you spend your spring retreat in the luxurious refinement of Mexico’s modern oasis.
