We reveal 10 top-rated family-friendly resorts in Cancun that vacationers will want to check out.
Cancun beach and Iberostar Selection Cancun Resort
Cancun, Mexico. The very thought may split opinions right through the middle. For some, such as Brad Bradd Pitt and his jet-setting celebrity colleagues, Cancun’s pristine beaches and amazing landscape make it a vacationer’s dream. But for others, it’s an overrated tourist trap not worth spending a minute in. While there are dozens of reasons to support either view, we believe Cancun CAN be a wonderful vacation option, especially if one focuses on Cancun’s less-crowded attractions.
That said, for those with family and planning to travel to Cancun, picking a resort with certain things children will occupy themselves with—such as coloring books, toys, or other safe fun games—is a top consideration. Parents will also be keen to get a place where they can steal some quiet, private moments away from the constant stress and trouble of children. In this article, we reveal 10 top-rated family-friendly resorts in Cancun that vacationers will want to check out.
10/10 Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun
Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun, or just FACC, is a popular all-inclusive resort that will excite vacationers for its family-friendliness. With many slides and a pool that, at its deepest, is just below two feet, FACC has many fun activities that will give children an amazing blast.
9/10 The Royal Sands Resort & Spa All Inclusive
The Royal Sands Resort & Spa is conveniently located in the heart of Cancun’s Tourist Hotel Zone.

One of the resort’s highlights is the Mini Club, where parents can drop kids off (to lose themselves in making jewelry) and only check on them after about forty minutes.

4/10 Hard Rock Hotel
Hard Rock Hotel, conveniently located on Cancun’s main strip, not only has a live studio where one can play her favorite musical instrument but also several family-friendly restaurants and a super cool kids club that children enjoy spending time in. That said, Hard Rock may not be as death-quiet as some families would want it to be.
