Looking for the right hotel...

Hi, i'm planning a one week vacation in Cancun in october with few friends... i'm 25 years old and i'm looking to have a good time but not for hard partying either... i went to Mayan Riviera in the past so i'm looking for something different this time. As i said i would like to be able to party when i want but also rest and relax. For accomodations, I'm looking for a nice hotel (4* minimum) with few "a la carte" restaurents and buffet. Clean room, beautiful beach, good food, etc.

If anybody can advise me, it would be great !

Thank you !

I was at the GCP or now called the Golden Parnasseus or what ever... it was amazin... adults only, good party group but also laid back and not to crazy. I was ther with my paretns (I am 24/f) and I still had a blast.

I also stayed at Riu Caribe, but I enjoyed the adults only aspect of the GP

DO NOT even consider Oasis Cancun ......... what a youth hostel slum it is ........... I wound up there on a 4 Apple Square Deal, and after staying at the Golden Parnassus before, I wondered what I had done to deserve something so bad as the Oasis Cancun!!

At the Oasis Cancun, I felt like I had fallen into a human cesspool and couldn't get out for a week ............ and I'm no stuffed-shirt, I can drink and party and tell jokes with the best of them ........... do your research before you go .............. I loved the Golden Parnassus and will never go on one of those trips again where you find out where your accomodations are at the departing airport!!

hiptrveler,

You mentioned ala carte restaurants so I'm assuming you would not prefer an AI. With that, I would suggest the Omni or JW Marriott. They are both very nice resorts yet not so upscale they are uptight.

There are quite a few threads on these. Maybe one of them would meet your approval.

I think the Omni Cancun Hotel would be perfect for what you're looking for. They have the only Jacuzzi bar in Cancun, which I'd bet you'd love. It's a wonderful hotel with great service any yummy food also.
