While the city of Cancun has a plethora of hotels, three of the nicest in the area are Sol Melia hotels. Although the same company, Sol Melia, owns all three hotels, there are unique aspects that characterize them all. The Gran Melia Cancun, situated on a jutting strip of sand and rising dramatically above the ocean, is inspired by Mayan design. Also inspired by Mayan design is the Melia Turquesa, located on the ocean. The third Sol Melia hotel, the Paradisus Riviera Cancun, lies about thirty minutes south of Cancun and offers a relaxing getaway far from the hustle and bustle of the city. Read on to find out more about the Sol Melia hotels that offer a variety of comfortable choices.
Gran Melia Cancun
Built in the shape of five separate pyramids, the Gran
Melia Cancun sits on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean.
The hotel is located about fifteen minutes from the Cancun
airport. Travelers coming to Cancun can take a taxi from
the airport for a reasonable price or rent a car. Rental
car offices operate from the airport and travelers who
book in advance can arrange to have a car waiting for
them when they arrive.
This Sol Melia hotel is an excellent choice for couples looking for a Mexican retreat. 134 rooms make up a special section of the hotel that is sanctioned, "adult only", and guests will enjoy their own separate lobby, lounge and swimming pool area. The Gran Melia also has a wide variety of restaurants and bars, with cuisine ranging from fresh sushi to traditional Mexican fare. Like most Sol Melia hotels throughout the world, the Gran Melia has a large, full-service spa located on the premises. A nine hole, three-par golf course also lies among the lush greenery behind the hotel.
The Melia Turquesa specializes in all-inclusive Cancun vacations. Set on a strip of pristine sand with ocean views on all sides, the Melia Turquesa is an exquisite luxury hotel in Mexico. All rooms feature air conditioning, hair dryers, spacious bathrooms, television and kitchenettes.
