InterContinental Presidente Cancun Resort
overall disappointing
had better expectations since it's a big brand. first day we rrturned from a tour and found a pile of hair on the floor and quite muddy near the fridge, which by the way is key locked, so can't put your water to cool. the staff is only friendly if they considered you've tipped them big, and the attitude they expect it with is the akward situation,not the tip itself, something I haven't experienced in other hotel in cancun. no other continent adaptors for the sockets, which I've always found in other hotels. been charged for phone calls (in Mexico) that didn't even go through. the area itself is not the best in the hotels zone. the beach and sand is good but so less better than on the main and long hotel area. wouldn't stay with them again.

Very Good8.0
Excellent hotel
Beautiful hotel with excellent service throughout. The beach is stunning and the restaurants and bar were very good. There was a leak in our room and they efficiently moved and upgraded us. Great location, 10 minute walk from the restaurants and nightlife. I would stay here if I ever went back to Cancun.
LISA, gb2 night romance trip
InterContinental Presidente Cancun Resort
A fantastic experience. Started with an unsolicited room upgrade, which really enhanced the quality of our stay because the views were very pleasing. The staff is extremely friendly and professional. The property is well managed and staffed. Its condition is fine and well kept. The restaurants are of high quality. We loved Urbana which serves authentic Mexican cuisine. I read reviews that this hotel's beach is the best in Cancun, and as we walked the length of the north beach, I agree. Thank you for making our stay and our first visit to Cancun so memorable. I hate to recommend this hotel because I want to keep it a secret, but here you go! I do have one suggestion: the current lobby is too small and noisy because of the presence of the bar in it. If you expand it to include the area currently reserved for the not too frequented club Lounge, I think you'd enhance the feel and functionality of the lobby. Right now, if you want to sit somewhere quiet and have a cup of coffee, you are out of luck. A larger lobby that extends into the front with possible views of the beach would be a major enhancement to the looks, feel, and functionality of this wonderful hotel.

InterContinental Presidente Cancun Resort
We really enjoyed this hotel! The service was excellent and was everything was pretty reasonably priced. It was very clean and the amenities like the spa and restaurants were wonderful. While this hotel is a bit tranquil and more for families, expect some noise from the surrounding area. The other hotels have their parties going full swing during the day so their music can be heard when you are on the beach. Also, the street can be a little noisy if your room faces that way. Overall, though we would highly recommend this hotel!
