Marriott International’s first-ever Marriott all-inclusive property will open next year at the site of the former Marriott Cancun resort.
The property, located in the middle of the Cancun resort zone, has been in the midst of an extensive renovation since March, one that will continue until it reopens under the name Marriott Cancun, An All-Inclusive Resort in early 2024 (the company has yet to reveal the exact date).
Renovation plans call for redesigned guest rooms, suites, meeting spaces, new food and beverage outlets, a state-of-the-art fitness center, daily and nightly entertainment venues, several different pools, and a separate lazy river and waterpark.
The property, which has been one of Marriott’s legacy property in the Yucatan Peninsula for several decades, will still offer access to the Mexican Caribbean shoreline.
“Travelers will be relieved to discover that they will not be bidding their beloved Marriott Cancun Resort a permanent goodbye, but instead, expecting a very exciting reopening with a more modern product, as the property is being reimagined by Marriott, and utilizing the space to offer a sophisticated twist to the traditional all-inclusive concept,” said Alex Fiz, Area Vice President Caribbean & Managing Director All-Inclusive for Marriott International.
“Cancun is one of the world’s most exclusive resort destinations, an ideal fit for the first Marriott branded all-inclusive hotel and a future renewed hub for its trusting guests and our Marriott Bonvoy members that look for a wonderful stay in a seamless all-inclusive format.”
While the property will be the first Marriott-branded all-inclusive, a number of other properties that fall under the Marriott banner are already operating as all-inclusives, including some in Cancun such as the Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun.
