view of room Hotel Aloft Cancun

Looking for hotels in Cancun for handicaped? Aloft also has rooms for the physically chalenged including a shower chair.

Rooms have either ocean or lagoon views so you always can see the water.

And the windows have one hundred per-cent block-out curtains. I know. I tried them myself. And as it's double glass your room is quiet as all noise kept out.

Know you will get a good nights' sleep.

And maybe before turning in try the rooftop terrace for a view of the stars; the moon over the ocean and the skyline of Punta Cancun.

Some units king bed as shown on left.

grab and go Hotel Aloft Cancun

Maybe you feel for a snack. A muffin. A soda. At the grab and go 24 hours a day you can help yourself to a snack and just tell the reception to put it on the bill.

Next to the Grab and Go is a billards table. And a laptop work area with electrical outlets and a worktalbe for your PC. So get your snack, plug in the PC and surf the net. Get up to date on your e-mails.

The Grab and Go has healthy options like fresh fruit.

And a microwave to heat up your blueberry muffin.

Use the little green arrow below to see some of the goodies at the Grab and Go. Then use the green arrow again to return here.




pool on the roof Hotel Aloft Cancun best of hotels in Cancun
You know the higher you are the better the view!

Here in the rooftop pool in Hotel Aloft see the ocean, the skyline of the discos in the heart of the hotel zone.
I tell you there are hotels in Cancun, then there's Aloft.

Annie was traveling with her husband and two teenage daughters. Being on a budget she began shopping for a high end hotel in Cancun and found at all of them the other hotels said: sorry but four adults not allowed in one room you need to get two rooms as the teens considered as adults is a common practice.

Then she talked to us and found Aloft which allows the whole family together with no extra charge for the two daughters. And with two queen beds everyone is most comfortable on their vacation.

In addition to this refreshing fresh water pool is a gym open 24 hours a day. So for those who want to get up and excercise at 5AM you can. Mind you, no one will find me there though at that hour!

And a pool table in the lobby.

The events hall is lovely.


buffet in the restaurant in this Cancun hotelYes the event hall tactic is equipped with state of the art audio visual, plasma TV with laptop hookup, and complimentary WiFi. Fine furnishings.

Shown on the right is the breakfast buffet at Nuk restaurant. Ate there myself last week.

There is also a sauna and steam room too!

Ice machines on every floor.

underwater photo  snorkeling in <b>Cancun</b>


I took this photo in the across the street from Aloft while snorkeling a few feet from the beach.
After you visit here you'll know why Cancun is the prefered snorkeling and diving location the west side of paradise. The magical waters near these lodgings are a natural aquarium. The Aloft staff can assist in setting up dives.

The taxi driver can assist in going to dives.
And for the snorkeler shallow reefs abound.

Geology has made Cancun’s uniqueness since the island of Isla Mujeres protects the reefs from the powerful open ocean waves crashing on its western side. This barrier reef thing and the gentle current from the Gulf Stream provide Cancun with turquoise transparent waters and those ideal conditions for diving or snorkeling in a most rewarding ecosystem.
At the doorstep of Aloft is Dady O's disco. Music is hip hop, salsa, disco, electro, minimal, and maximo I guess.
What is minimal music? This is music that works with limited or minimal materials: pieces that use only a few notes, pieces that use only a few words of text, or pieces written for very limited instruments, such as antique cymbals, bicycle wheels, or whiskey glasses.
Hub caps.
It includes pieces that sustain one basic electronic rumble for a long time. It includes pieces made exclusively from recordings of rivers and streams. It includes pieces that move in endless circles.
Some claim the dance floor has some cracks and their heel gets caught.

The dance floor spins (turns around) regardless if you're on open bar or not.

Another bar nearby Aloft is The City.
This club only opens on Fridays so plan your vacation to Cancun accordingly because you may want to go here. It is packed– There are three levels with the capacity of 6,000 thousand people. The floor gets really crowded whereas if you have a table you have more room, and make friends with the people next to you! The City plays a lot of house/EDM American music

the cool bar in the Aloft the WXYZ:
Mixers, minglers, hips, and night owls are always welcome at one of the most vibrant Cancun bars. Take the elevator from your lodgins in Cancun down to the main lobby.
Here, fun and energy flow freely, with everything from pints and pinots to pub-style snacks and made-for-sharing specialties on tap nightly.
Get sassy, get happy, get social and get yourself to W XYZ® bar for cool house music and hot special events like live acoustic performances by emerging local musicians.
While we were doing tequila slammers in the bar the nine-year-old was excited to find a chocolate milk machine in the Grab and Go area.
But her grumpy aunt did not approve. “Chocolate milk for dinner?” she asked.
“It’s delicious!” said my the little girl.
Well it's morning somewhere replied the aunt. She mellowed out. After all she's in the bar and she has lodgings in Cancun.

Doctor Jones likes to stop off at the WXYZ bar in Aloft after work and enjoy an almond daiquiri.
One day, Dick the bartender runs out of almonds and uses hickory nuts instead.
The doctor takes a sip and says, “Is this an almond daiquiri, Dick?”
And Dick replies, “It’s a hickory daiquiri, Doc.”
Karl says:
Great location near the big nightlife spots, Chedraui Supermarket just next door, and ferry to Isla Mujeres across the street. We were on the 9th floor and didn't have any problems with the noise from the clubs near by. Not on the beach, but public access is across the street. The rooftop pool and bar is nice as well.

Internet Access:
Surf for free from anywhere in this hotel.
Fast & free WiFi is available in all of guest rooms and social areas.
You can even browse emails while lounging by the pool. Or in your Cancun lodgings.

Not everyone is lucky enough to be here in Aloft with FREE WiFi with data-port connections for their devices.
The shame of it all is some choose a deal somewhere with old TV's with those rabbit-ear attenae things; no cable or the net and some confused fool attending the lobby washroom not knowing where he is or why announcing to every tipsy entering look before you leak.
And after the Irish gardener left his rake laying around adds careful not to step on Finn Again's rake.

Yes we pay for our bargains.
You do not deserve any less than lodgings in Aloft next to Plaza Caracol (over ten silver shops featuring silver from Taxco, art galleries, eight beach ware boutiques, countless restaurants and coffee shops).
what a visitor from Peru says:
El Aloft se encuentra en la zona mas comercial de cancun de la zona hotelera , es funcional porque tienes playa publica 50 metros es ideal para gente que no quiera atarse a un todo incluido y quiera hacer todo los tours o como en mi caso que esperaba un vuelo al dia siguiente tiene estacionamiento con valet parking gratis...
chava de Uruguay dice:
Aloft Hotel excelente ubicación.
Habitaciones muy cómodas y prolijas. Habiendo hecho el check out nos permitieron usar las duchas del gym a la vuelta de la playa y camino al aeropuerto. Muy amables! Ambiente ideal para jovenes!1

1 Entonces no para Clinton o Trump.
The interactive aquarium is minutes away. Feed sharks. Swim with dolphins. Stroll the grounds around this site with canals, bridges, even a Johnny Rockets for a shake and burger.



In Cancun near hotel Aloft upscale value Cancun lodgings you can find several parlors for tatoos.
The permanent or Henna type.

But self-control is most recommended.
This guy from Belgium lost all control and had his whole body tatooed.
A street map of downtown Cancun is now depicted on his head.

Besides tatoos shopping is fun as we can see evidenced by this tatooed man. In his left hand he got a huge dust pan and in his right a rather large wooden spoon to drink his soup.

On his head are suction cups he found in a supermarket in the hotel zone. Now there are several not far from the hotel.

Besides dust pans and suction cups find jewelry at Plaza Caracol close by. They run fine sterling silver all the way from Taxco. And an ocasional piece or two all the way from Houston.
They have a very wide selection of some of the most exotic designs.
Also some shops custom design jewelry to your specifications if you pay them for it.
This tatooed Belgian to the left got his earing there I'm sure.
Find a large Plaza Fiesta not far from Plaza Caracol as well as one in the awesome mall La Isla. All a stone's throw from Aloft where your teens are FREE. A few bus stops going south.

For arts and crafts do the Forum by the Sea - Located in Punta Cancun right in the center of the hotel zone of Cancun. Find handcrafted Mexican furnishings and artistic decorations for the home as well as wonderful gift ideas. Very exotic and a selection of unusual Mexican art like the big spoon the Belgian has in his right hand.

For you that are visiting from Canada afraid there's no hockey T Shirts or caps. But they have great tequila shops.

Café Starbucks both at Plaza Caracol and La Isla for delicious fresh-roasted whole bean and ground coffee and cold frapachinos.
In a nearby store they also sell whole vanilla beans and extract, fresh honey (including Yucatan honey), scented soaps, plain and decorated Mexican shopping bags, and local liqueurs. With almost thirty years of innovation and growth, Plaza Caracol presents you with more than 150 shops, offering you articles that range from boutique perfumes (at duty free prices) and fine jewelry, to souvenirs and special details for your loved ones.
With ample internal shops all featuring air conditioning, and attractive events and promotions throughout all seasons, Plaza Caracol offers to both the casual shopper and the professional bargainer the chance to always find what they are looking for with surprisingly affordable prices.
Plaza Caracol is also know for being one of the favorite gathering places for the Cancun residents, guaranteeing the fact of meeting new friends and getting to know the local lifestyle in the well know bistros, coffee shops and restaurants Plaza Caracol hosts.

And of course you know where to stay
The one and only Aloft with internet and all-inclusive. Yes the Aloft in Cancun.



Recognized as one of the top golf courses in the World today, the Pok Ta Pok which is located only a few blocks away from Aloft, just in the center of the Cancun hotel zone.
This magnificent golf course, par 72 with a distance of 7,144 yards is considered the most challenging course in the region (as most golfers hung-over from cocktails at the swim-up bar).
The Aloft bed and breakfast package does not offer transportation to and from the course, but food and beverages at the hotel & snacks so you have energy for the course.


Overheard at the pro shop:
Four old men went into the pro shop after playing 18 holes of golf in Pok Ta Pok.
The pro asked, Did you guys have a good game today? No one passed out?
The first old guy said, Yes, I had three riders today.
The second old guy said, I had the most riders ever. I had five.
The third old guy said, I had seven riders, the same as last time.
The last old man said, I beat my old record. I had 12 riders today.
After they went into the locker room, another golfer who had heard the old guys talking about their game went to the pro and said, "I've been playing golf for a long time and thought I knew all the terminology of the game, but what's a rider? Never heard that one in any hotels Playa del Carmen.
The pro said, A rider is when you hit the ball far enough to actually get in the golf cart and ride to it. --
Mind you those oldies need to ride the cart for anything more than 10 yards.
