Rated 5 out of 5 by MarkMD2 Best Cancun Hotel
I've been going to Cancun since 1971, when the Sheraton was the first hotel on the beach strip (after Club Med at the point). The Westin Lagunamar, which replaced it, is the best place I've ever stayed at in Cancun. Fabulous grounds and ocean views, clean and secure, great staff, and the best location on the beach across from La Isla shopping center and restaurants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by je31 Hotel was great for families
We loved our stay here. Was great for families. Rooms were comfortable and large and bathroom was fantastic. Kitchenette and washer dryer were great features for family. Pool areas and beach were beautiful. The spa was also fantastic. My one issue was that there was a fight in the morning to get chairs by the pool as people reserved seats at 6 am and then left for hours at a time, also there wasn't enough staff at the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HTGF Best vacation ever!
I cannot say enough nice things about this hotel. The staff is unbelievably welcoming and professional, the grounds are beautiful, and it was worth every single point and dollar that we spent. I traveled with my 2 kids, we got a one bedroom villa. I ended up giving the kids the master bed and I slept on the pullout couch, which was surprisingly comfortable. The view from the room was incredible, and the location can't be beat. It would have been great to have more English channels on the tv for night viewing, but other than that i have absolutely nothing negative to say about this Westin. My kids are already planning our next vacation there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bpark56 We will be returning...every year
A very enjoyable stay, with excellent attention to detail by the staff. The concierge service was, as usual, the best we have found anywhere. And the same for the front desk and maids.
We did miss the nuts and dried fruits that were served in the owners' lounge last year. And we are not sure why you stopped serving milk for the coffee there during this visit. We also found it difficult to learn when happy hours were...and why they are different at Duna than at the pool bar. Perhaps these should be mentioned in both the check-in literature and the summary booklets in the villas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nick What a great vacation. Absolutely the BEST !!!
Spent New Year's Eve 2015 and the following week at this awesome property. Everyone there deserves a special thanks. I've never felt so much at home at a resort as I do at the Lagunamar. The staff is so friendly and never forgets a name. You're greeted with a smile and that smile never leaves anyone's face. There's nothing they won't do to make you enjoy your stay even more enjoyable. Congrats to Pedro on his great Food and Beverage crew. Everything they serve is fresh and tasteful. Armando, the Duna Sports Club bartender, was extra special. He goes way out of his way to remember our favorite drinks and to make sure everything is up to our expectations. He also works in the bar at the "Special Themed Nights" and was the best !!! We can't say enough about any of the staff and we welcome the new Executive Chef. Without a doubt, the property is spotless, the food is spectacular, the rooms are beautiful and the grounds, pools and beach are the best in Cancun. We love this place and will be back again soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ddsyes Overall okay, but room for improvement
Room was fine, with exception of mattress and pillows. Good value if you prefer not to eat all your meals out, since the small kitchen in each room gives you that option. Virtually no lobby. Fitness center needs upgrade with more equipment. Great location across from La Isla mall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ping2525 Wonderful Stay!
It was our first time to this Westin. The hotel was wonderful! Clean, accessible to other restaurants and the mall. I thought the Westin Staff was amazing! They are friendly, helpful and work hard at their jobs to make you feel welcome. I thought the wait staff at the restaurants were excellent. We had a great time with them. Also the concierge we had was very knowledge and even called before we arrived to help plan one of our activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nomi Comfortable and friendly
Despite it being Christmas week and filled to capacity, we never felt overlooked or unattended to. The two bedroom lock-outs are most comfortable. Staff at breakfast and at the pool were attentive and efficient. One day, my grand-daughter cut her foot at the pool and a life guard came and attended to it effectively and in a most timely manner. I use this property as a time share. i know some use it as a hotel. The advantage of that is daily maid service. For time share owners, I recommend paying for daily maid service. Special shout out to management who made sure our room location needs were met. Overall, a wonderful and relaxing week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by My0name0is0Chance Great hotel
Everything was great. I've stayed here twice and have essentially zero complaints. The front desk staff is exceptional and the Concierge service is good.
The hotel does have some minor inconvenience when it comes to exchanging money, but no other short comings were noted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cynthia26 Everyone was so friendly!
This was our first trip to Cancun and we couldn't have picked a better resort to stay in! We loved our villa and loved the location cause we were able to venture outside of the resort. The best part of this resort was how friendly everyone was! From the front desk, to the wait staff, to the pool concierge, everyone was willing to go above and beyond for you! We had a great stay! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cubigbird Clean, safe, comfortable "home awy from home"
We recently stayed here during Christmas week - our second stay in two years. This is a resort that we like to come back to and is one of places in the world to travel to.
The resort pays close attention to detail to providing a top notch guest experience. As I walked through the resort I always saw a staff member cleaning something - whether it be crevaces in the floor inside or sweeping sand brought up from feet on the beach or cleaning the inside of the pool. The villas are extremely comfortable and clean as well. Upon check-in, our villa was clean with clean dishes. There was no evidence of a previous guest that checked out that same morning.
There is an extensive list of activities for adults and kids. The fun team does a great job engaging guests and making the activities fun!
The resort is safe. I have never felt my safety in question when staying here. Security is visible throughout the resort. The resort also provides a large enough safe in the villa to lock up all valuables including laptops and tablets.
To provide balanced feedback, the one suggestion for improvement I do have is to reduce wait times for check in - during peak hours there can be a lengthy wait to check in or check out. After travelling long distance it would be great to minimize "business" with time to hit the beach or pools.
This is a well run Westin that cares about its guests. I recommend this resort and we will be back again. Nice job!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leigh25 One of my all time favourite properties
I stay in many hotels for business each year so a another hotel stay isn't always a treat for me as with others. This hotel feels more like a well kept condo on a fantastic beach! The amenities in the kitchens allow you to make food to your liking at the time you like. The well placed and well cared for grills around the property allow you to BBQ to your hearts delight. Even though you are across the street from a mall ( La Isla) you feel like you're not in a city. The property is well situated with the most beach frontage of ALL the hotels along the strip and each and every room has a glorious beach front view. The staff is engaged, professional and caring. I love staying at this property and would recommend it highly to all my friends and family.

Staff was friendly especially at the pool, but a couple of times my wife and I felt like we were harrass for not wanting to go to the ownership brief. Pools and the beach were very nice. Hot tub was not very hot.

Besides the gorgeous views and beautiful facilities, the staff went above and beyond our expectations. Everyone from the Pool concierge, front desk, bell staff, bartenders, activities coordinators, maintenance, Tierra Market staff were pleasant , prompt and always went above and beyond our expectations. We had a wonderful time and even bought a week so we could come back regularly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TcJohnson The Great Staff at the Lagunamar
The mark excellant of any facility are the people who work there. I had the benefit of meeting not just one but a number of those people. To began with Delfina and Toni two of the best concierges I have ever encountered made sure all our concerns and issues were resolved to our satisfaction. To our friends in the Ocenia Resturant Henry , Jimi , Tomas,Armondo ,Freddy ,and Publeo I thank you for making our meals ,tasteful and good. To Gerado the best porter thanks also for the timely and quuick delivery of our bags even though your cart was loaded to the top. Finally thanks to Romy and Maryann for helping in excercising our option to buy into the Lagunamr resort , my sincere thanks to all of you and I will be seeing you again soon:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by beejay77 Excellent hotel and location.
This is our second visit to Lagunamar and we have enjoyed the hotel each time. Staff is very well trained and attentive to our needs. Our concierge, Delfina was especially helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. The only negative area is your restaurants. Don't think they are up to normal Westin standards. Keep up the excellent service- we hope to return soon.

We went to Duma for lunch and two workers were doing demolition right outside the door right at lunch time making a very irritating old noises. Not a good experience .also all during Wednesday they were using a jackhammer which could be heard through out the area which did not allow us to enjoy the balcony at our villa. Also the hot tub kept breaking down on our side of the pool and most ot the time only one worked out of three.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sungirl Love the view
This hotel is a Starwood Vacation Ownership. It is not quite like staying at other Westin Hotels. We bought time at this resort and are always very happy with our stay. The living room and kitchen are spacious as is the bathroom. Almost all rooms we have stayed in, in the last 5 years, have had great ocean views even if there is some pool and resort view with it. We have stayed in the studio and like it too. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Check-in can be slow but that is mainly due to guests asking and receiving a lot of information. I think the groceries in their little store are priced accordingly and offer a good variety. We always travel with a few sundries, coffee and round filters, but the coffee pot does come with a rinseable detached filter. The outside grills next to the pool are nice for those that want to cook in. Overall, this is a great resort.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ec06jsb Time share property
Property is a time share, no real resort character, no bars or restaurants (apart from a characterless sports bar and a pool/ breafast eatery). No water in rooms, platinum member, but was given smallest room even though the resort wasn't full. Beach and location are great, opposite a mall. Needs to build a bar and proper restaurants

Check-in and concierge staff provided excellent service. Our concierge Lucio provided fantastic restaurant recommendations.
A couple of nits about the accommodations - the flat screen TVs in the rooms need to be updated. The TVs are not HD and there are no HDMI connections on the TVs. Could not get the DVD player to read media from the USB port. The hardwired ethernet port was not active.

This is our fourth year staying at the Westin and we are never disappointed. The property is very well maintained and if there is something you need, express service will have it to you in no time at all. The location is great, right across from Isla Shopping and restaurants and close to bus stops. Can't wait for our next visit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sage2014 Not a great experience
Really a bad visit for me and my girlfriend while on vacation.
1). Expressly told us they would not honor my SPG gold status during our stay. Thus, no ability to upgrade room and no 4pm late checkout.
2). Although indicated by phone that we would be allowed to checkout at noon, later Locked us out of our room at 11am and failed to send someone to let us in after several calls. We ended up going to front desk to get re keyed, but were late for our transit due to the mixup.
3). Service staff ignore the due not disturb sign and continued to buzz door while we were sleeping.
4). Really ignored our request for a specific room with a view of the ocean. I understand that they have a lot of construction going on, but it is offseason and they made no real effort to explain why we had no choice.
