JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa

I stayed at this hotel in May 2008. The pictures online feautre beautiful, sandy beaches. This resort DOES NOT have a beach - the beach has been washed away from all of the hurricane activity over the past couple of years. If you view the online pictures, you will see Tiki huts that a person can sit under - this is where the water line is at and there is no sitting on the beach unless you want to sit in the water.

The hotel also has a faint smell of water damage (mildew). During the time I was there it rained and I could really smell mildew. There were also leaks in the hallways and in the Club 9 Lounge.

    Did you go over to Casa Magna? Which did you prefer? Was there a beach at Casa Magna or was that washed away also? We are booked on points at Club 91 level on Jan, but also have reservation at Casa Magna. Still can't decide which way to go. Thought?

    We stayed at the JW in August 2008 and found it to be most wonderful. We have not stayed at Casa but walked through several times and ate there. We were very happy with our decision to stay at the JW. The grounds at Casa were nice but not as lush and tropical as the JW. The pool at the JW is fabulous and winds itself around the complex ending at an infinity pool. We sat out everyday at the pool and the service was wonderful. As far as the beach there was evidence that it had been much higher but there was sand there.  It was a narrow beach but still very much useable. Life guards were there working and people were swimming. The Casa hotel seemd very dark. Dark wood, dark lighting and some hotel rooms in the front of the hotel that had outside entry was dark and covered by the upstairs floors. We did not stay at Club 91. That would be the one sore point.  We were told they would only upgrade platinum so we did not get up there but out room was still beautiful and had a lovely view.  I don't think you could go wrong at the JW and when we go back we will stay there again. Enjoy!!
