The Westin Lagunamar in Cancun, Mexico is one of the nicest resorts I have ever had the privilege of staying at. Although my stay there was brief, I was present long enough to gain a sense of why this hotel routinely earns a 5-star review on sites like TripAdvisor and Oyster.
The resort itself is stunning. They have a beautiful property where every room is ocean-view and most rooms have a great view of the pool as well. (The illuminated pools at night make for a gorgeous view!). The property has several tall fountains in addition to two large infinity-edge pools. The fountains produce a constant relaxing waterfall-like background sound that rivals the pleasure of listening to waves crashing at the beach.
Down by the infinity pool, the water creates a horizon line stretching across where the beach begins. Only a thin layer of sand divides your vision between where the pool water ends and the ocean water begins. The view first thing in the morning is breathtaking.
I spent most of my getaway in and around the Westin Lagunamar’s warm pools. I envisioned this vacation being spent down by the beach but the ocean water was a bit rougher than I had anticipated. As nice as the water looked, the beaches were lined with red flags every single day. Guess it was not meant to be.
