Why We Recommend It:
It’s not cheap by any means, but the decidedly swanky Le Blanc Spa Resort is to our minds the finest adults-only all-inclusive in Cancun.
It’s a gorgeously chic property with opulent spa facilities, fabulous bars and restaurants (all but one of which don’t require reservations), and levels of service and pampering unmatched by almost any other resort in Cancun.
Rooms & Suites:
Their rooms and suites are bright, spacious, and very well-appointed, generally with views of the lagoon or the ocean.
Only some have full balconies though. Most are smaller Juliet-style, which is definitely a negative, though in fairness probably the only one with this accommodation.
The one-bedroom units will either have a king bed or two double beds that sleep up to four. Then there are larger two-room units with two king beds.
The largest and most opulent at Le Blanc is the Two Bedroom Presidential Suite, a gorgeous, and enormous space with a whirlpool on its large balcony amongst other impressive features.
Standard features of all the rooms include satellite TVs with Netflix, iTunes, Apple TV, etc. generously stocked minibars, premium liquor dispensers (Johnnie Walker Black, Absolut Vodka, Bacardi, etc.), wine, Lavazza coffee-makers, aromatherapy & pillow menus, and 24-hour room service.
Their opulent marble bathrooms are as nice as you might expect and come with TVs, showers, bathtubs, Bulgari toiletries and a personal butler that can prepare a bath for you with customized bath salts and rose petals.
Some suites have whirlpool baths too, either in the bathroom or in the main room by the window.
Food, Facilities & Things to Do:
The food and drink at Le Blanc Resort Cancun win consistently great reviews, quite a feat for an all-inclusive, and all fine dining and premium drinks are included in the all-inclusive package.
Blanc is the main buffet venue and has tremendous spreads during the day. It also serves Mexican and steakhouse a la carte in the evenings
Some excellent Italian and Asian a la carte cuisine is also available in two other chic venues, and all the above restaurants happily don’t require reservations.
Their coveted Lumiere restaurant does require reservations, which your personal butler can arrange for you.
It is an opulent French gourmet eatery with a formal dress code, multi-course tasting menus, matching wines, and some of the best fine dining in Cancun.
The resort has a great wide stretch of sandy beach as an obvious place to hang out but also has three swimming pools, one of which, right by the beach, is a gorgeous infinity pool with a swim-up bar.
The lagoon pool also has a swim-up bar and is the venue for water aerobics sessions, water polo, and aqua spinning.
You can order as much food and drink as you like around the pools and the attendant staff are always on hand to set up day beds or loungers and to pamper guests with cold towels, ice cream, and whatever else may come to mind.
The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, but relatively sophisticated, even at the pool bars, though there is also a lounge bar with live music and nightly DJ performances where people do let their hair down.
And you’re only about ten minutes walk away from some of Cancun’s most famous bars and clubs.
Back at the resort, the Lobby Bar is a popular low-key spot–a chic hangout with live music performances, usually classical, in the evenings.
There is a modern, very well-equipped gym with various daily fitness classes, and a very opulent, 19-treatment room spa.
Treatments generally require an extra fee and don’t come cheap, but guests are free to use the hydrotherapy facilities, the sauna, steam rooms, and lounges as they please.
Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun is in the middle of the Hotel Zone, just below Punta Cancun. The International Airport is around 20 minutes away with shuttle services provided by the resort.
Some Guest Reviews:
“Excellent service all around. Great resort and location and the food is wonderful with several dining options. I had wonderful help from Elsy who helped coordinate everything from ground transportation to dinner reservations to other special personal touches for our stay. Highly recommend this resort for some much needed rest and relaxation….”
“Le Blanc is probably the best all-inclusive hotel option in Cancun! All of the restaurants are amazing and the service is impeccable. The hotel staff really goes above and beyond to make sure you have a comfortable stay. The pool and beach are beautiful too. It’s really the best place in Cancun to get away from it all and have a relaxing, kid-free, getaway!….”
