Investments were made to create new check-in lounge in main lobby, a new family concierge check-in lounge, a new kids zone area, four new restaurants for a total of eight, two new bars for a total of six, one new Red Lounge (Music Bar), a redesign of two restaurants. New air conditioning systems, energy efficiency control systems installed, 10 out of 12 new elevators installed, new pipelines installed, and the exterior and interior of the building has been painted. In addition, more than 30 new Wi-Fi antennas were installed in order to provide the resort full Wi-Fi coverage.
The interior and exterior designs of the Paradisus Cancun are elegent, unique and trendy. This resort consists of 5 glass pyramids offering bright daylight to it's interior. The largest, middle pyramid takes advantage of it's sunlit ceilings with amazing 9 story hanging gardens. Tropical foliage and vines cascade down to the lush gardens, palms and fish ponds at ground level. This garden is a preferred spot for family destination weddings along with the beach gazebo.

The Paradisus Cancun is an all suite resort. Basically their are 4 room types and most hold a maximum of 4 people.

One of the best features for families at the Paradisus Cancun is the new baby club. It is a complimentary service that is part of their all inclusive program. Here trained nannies will care from kids ages 1-4 years of age between the hours of 9am to 9:30pm.
In addition there is a kids club for children ages 5-12. Here kids will enjoy age appropriate activities like games, crafts, video games and movies while under supervised care.
The Beach at the Paradisus Cancun is truly stunning. White sands and crystal waters in every shade of blue. If there is one drawback to this resort, it is that the surf here can be rough like our photos here shows. That said there are 4 pools at the Paradisus covering almost 5 acres complete with beach beds and pool side service.
Baby friendly resorts are in short supply and high demand. We're so pleased that the Paradisus Cancun offers and option for young families looking for a luxury all inclusive resort vacation.
