Where to Stay in Cancun: Krystal Grand Punta Cancun

Tucked away in the premier Punta Cancun hotel zone, the new Krystal Grand Punta Cancun (formerly a Hyatt hotel) debuts as Cancun’s can’t miss beach resort and features brand new gourmet restaurants, unparallelled balcony room views, and an unbeatable semi-secluded beach with friendly cabana service. All this within steps away from Cancun’s touristic treasures and nightlife. Towering over the the white sandy point, this luxury hotel radiates elegance and sophistication.

Located in the heart of Cancun’s hotel zone, the Krystal Grand Punta Cancun is nestled perfectly in the northeastern most point creating a feeling of seclusion and serenity, while still offering close proximity to all the buzz. Krystal Grand Punta Cancun’s new business model of delivering true mexican hospitality, and a la carte service knocks it out of the park. Their staff is friendly and personable. They also offer a new all-inclusive package, as well as room and breakfast, or room only options, all of which are sure to please.

The atrium-style lobby is jaw-dropping. As much as you might want to play at the beach, you’ll have a hard time taking your eyes off of this architectural masterpiece.


Each of the 295 deluxe rooms and suites offer a private balcony (with wall to wall sliding glass doors) with breathtaking views of the azure Caribbean Sea or Nichupté Lagoon where you will no doubt enjoy many morning coffees. The deluxe rooms are simple modern and sleek and stocked with all the necessary personalized toiletries and services (bathrobes, hairdryers, etc). The one thing lacking is a refrigerator - if that’s something that’s important to you (the minibar remains locked until you access it). The refreshing rainfall shower is perfect for washing away the stubborn sand between your toes. Each room (as well as everywhere in the hotel)  features wireless internet, which is a huge perk and can be surprisingly hard to find for such a popular tourist destination.

Altitude Status

Stay on the highest 3 levels of the resort and enjoy Altitude exclusivity. As a member of Altitude you have special access to the private Altitude Lounge which offers a personalized wait staff, delicious continental breakfast and evening drinks and hors d’oeuvres with a sunset view. While you should never miss a chance to eat at one of the many restaurants on the property, it definitely comes in handy to have access to the lounge for quick grab and go mornings or for quiet relaxing evenings.

The Beach

Krystal Grand Punta Cancun is without a doubt, situated on the best spot on the beach. With it’s sister hotel Krystal Cancun to one side, and only ocean and sand on the other, the Krystal Grand Punta Cancun gives you a sense of seclusion that you won’t find anywhere else. Only from the point can you get the spectacular view of the entire hotel zone without the hustle and bustle of all the tourists. There are plenty of brand new bali beds and palapas speckling the powder sand, and the water is protected by cement breakers that creates for a safe swimming cove for those that are looking for a calmer sea experience.  

The Pools

The resort features 4 separate pools including a brand new adult only infinity pool that is surrounded by bali beds on 3 sides. For relaxation sans sand, this is the place to be. The three other pools on the resort each feature something different such as waterfalls, volleyball nets, or a kids area.

Restaurants and Bars

The top notch restaurants is really where the Krystal Grand Punta Cancun stands apart from other all-inclusive resorts. In the last month the Krystal Grand Punta Cancun has debuted a new Oriental and new Italian restaurant adding to their repertoire of other gourmet restaurants, each of which offer a la carte menus. The Grill with it’s indoor/outdoor seating options was our favorite for it’s ambiance and delicious angus beef and seafood.

The resort also boasts 4 bars including a brand new lobby bar with occasional live music, a new terrace lounge, and a pool side bar.

As if the resort did not offer enough food options, all-inclusive Krystal Grand Punta Cancun guests also have access to the buffet restaurants at the Krystal Cancun resort next door as well as the El Mortero restaurant a few blocks away where you can enjoy authentic mexican food and a live mariachi band- a definite must.

Beach House Spa

Nothing completes a vacation like a deep tissue or relaxing facial. Krystal Grand Punta Cancun’s Beach House Spa is located right on the beach and offers a variety of services and at times offers discounts depending on the day service.

The Nitty Gritty

Re-branding a hotel can be a difficult undertaking, but what Krystal Grand Punta Cancun has done is praiseworthy, especially with its focus on improving the customer experience. The the combination of friendly service, new (and good) restaurants, the great beach with additional bali beds and beach chairs, you will feel like you never want to leave, but will be close enough to everything just in case you do.
