The resort will become the first Marriott branded all-inclusive resort in the world with core facilities make-over and an enhanced modern product offering new enriching experiences to guests.
CANCUN, MEXICO – June 6, 2023 – Marriott International will debut its first-ever Marriott all-inclusive property at the site of the former Marriott Cancun Resort, which closed its doors last March to undergo an extensive renovation for its conversion. The award-winning hotel now renamed Marriott Cancun, An All-Inclusive Resort, has been Marriott International’s legacy property in the Yucatan Peninsula for several decades gracing its sweeping shoreline with beachfront elevated accommodations, world-class amenities, and access to Cancun’s most treasured experiences.
“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.” mentioned 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.”
With the rapidly growing interest in all-inclusive properties, travelers are more likely than ever to book single-pricevacations for a hassle-free trip planning and friendly budgeting and booking process. Marriott International’s footprint in the all-inclusive segment has grown substantially in the last 4 years and today its All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy portfolio is comprised with 31 unparalleled resorts and with a robust pipeline seeking to cater more enriching experiences to its more than 180 million Marriott Bonvoy members out of which a vast number have expressed interest in taking an all-inclusive vacation. The renewed resort will redefine what it means to be ‘all-inclusive’, not only in terms of services offered, but also in terms of accommodating the lifestyles of visiting guests within the new vision but maintaining the same Marriott brand promise looking to elevate the art of hospitality.
“It’s wonderful to be at the forefront of something as groundbreaking as this” said Christopher Calabrese, General Manager and Vice President of Marriott Cancun, An All-Inclusive Resort and JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa. “Over my extensive tenure with the Marriott brand, I’ve maintained that we can only grow in collaboration with our valued guests, consistently honoring their needs and desires. To be the first all-inclusive Marriott branded property, not only in Mexico, but in the world, is a true testament to the dedication of our staff, who are the heart and soul of our operation here, and our guests, who continue to visit year after year. We are anxious to welcome everyone back next year”.
Expanding upon the all-inclusive promise, Marriott Cancun, An All-Inclusive Resort will launch all new redesigned rooms, suites, lobby, meeting spaces, and public areas, including new innovative restaurant concepts, expansive pools, and even a lazy river and waterpark. Keeping with Marriott Hotels’ commitment to providing upscale and enriching experiences, the premium all-inclusive property will deliver future guests with elevated food and beverage choices, a state-of-the-art fitness center, authentic daily and nightly entertainment, and dedicated guest relations representatives offering the heartfelt service that distinguishes the brand and a strong variety of refined facilities under the all-inclusive umbrella. The resort that began to undergo renovations in March of 2023 is expected to welcome guests again in early 2024 as a premium all-inclusive resort. For those who wish to visit a Marriott Cancun property in the meantime, the JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa sister resort is open and fully operating, offering luxury accommodations, unparalleled amenities, and unbridled access to the Mexican Caribbean’s magical shoreline.
