Set on Punta Cancún's eastern edge, this waterfront Krystal Cancun resort is near Cancún Convention Center and 1 block from nightclubs, shops, and restaurants.
Pros: The view was AMAZING!! the staff was very pleasant as well and had no issues when requesting a different room.Cons: The noise due to the club next door, but I did visit during spring break so it might be louder then.
Good first night in CancunPros: The staff at the Krystal Cancun were fantastic. Very friendly, and helpful, willing to give advice on good local (not touristy) places to eat and visit.
Great, easy self parking.
The room we had was right on the beach, with a fantastic view of the ocean.
The music at the bar was fantastic. Salsa, cha cha cha, boogaloo. Great bar service and good drinks. Awesome location in the hotel zone. The beach was clean and beautiful, located in a very calm water area. We enjoyed a perfect first night in Cancun at this hotel.
Cons: Our room was great, first floor, right on the beach. This posed a problem later on in the evening. There was a wedding right outside of our room on the beach, and the music from the reception was quite loud into the evening. We didn't mind this too much as we were very exhausted from traveling that evening and were able to fall asleep quickly, but for some, this may be a pain point.
The bed in our room was also quite uncomfortable. Very firm, sort of like sleeping on a box spring only.
The hot tub was being repaired and was not working when we arrived in the evening.
The staff runs really slow with the check in/check out process. Be prepared to wait a while when you are arriving and leaving the hotel.
There is only one main entrance to the hotel, so we had to walk quite a ways from where we parked our car to our room inside the hotel. We really didn't mind this, but again, it may be a pain point for some, that no one offered to help us with our bags.
The pool area closed around 10:00 at night, but you can walk up and down the beach in the evenings.
The bathroom in our room was dark, damp, and there was mold growing in corners in the shower. It was in much need of a thorough cleaning.
Overall we had a good first night in Cancun at this hotel. Its location on the beach made up for our dislikes.
Disgusting Hotel- the worst in Cancun so far. SelPros: Nothing a real dumpCons: Everything. Explode this dump ASAP
Cons: Shower is not working. Mirror is dirty, tissue holder has rust and not safe if it cut off your skin, resort must also work on its furnitures because the location is great but furnitures are old. Hallway must have carpet so whenever other guests are asleep it wouldn't bother them when someone is walking from the hallway especially kids who is running and playing around.
Enjoyed ImmenselyPros: Location, Location, Location! Loved the waterfront, the view, the service. Hugo, our bartender was friendly & made the tastiest mojito! I would recommend Krystal to fam & friends. Thumbs up!!!!
Beautiful beach not beautiful hotelPros: The beach was beautiful and easy access to it. The hotel cost was actually pretty cheap. Cons: The hotel is outdated, the shower was broken. I paid for two beds and only got one bad they didn't have another room.
Just so soPros: The beachfront was beautiful.
Housekeeping personnel was hard working and kind.Cons: Had to change room because of wifi issue. No help given. Showe was broken. Walls very thin.
Cons: Noise from clubs
Beautiful resort, not so friendly staffPros: We loved the beach of the Krystal. The beach front view was absolutely amazing. Each afternoon my friend and myself would lay out on the beach, and every day there were men with delicious coconut drinks who would sell them to us for very good prices. We definitely enjoyed that. The pools were also beautifully designed and were perfect with the beach front view.Cons: We didn't like the staff who were extremely rude on the phone and claimed that my friend and myself were liars. They called the room claiming that me and my friend were random girls that our friends had snuck into their room, when in reality we are all friends and had planned the trip together. They did not need to threaten to kick us out. My friend and myself had wrist bands to be at the resort. That was completely uncalled for.
Great locationPros: The location was very convenient! 5 minute walk to a market and the clubs and restaurants are just steps away!Cons: We paid for an ocean view room and we got something in the 1st floor and when you look out your window all you see are cabanas and people. Luckily we brought it up to their attention and they gave us something better BUT not until the next day. In my opinion, the rooms on the bottom floor, although technically facing the ocean, shouldnt be given to guest as "oceanview" seeing as you CANT see the ocean.
Pros: Right on beach!Cons: Very very old dated room! I should have know while standing at the desk listening to all the complaints of other guests that this was a poor place to stay!
Cons: Towels not replaced sometimes
