The Intercontinental Presidente is a family-friendly, modern beach hotel in a peaceful area of the party town Cancún on the Mayan Riviera. 

The Intercontinental Presidente, a modern hotel and beach resort in Cancún, overlooks the Caribbean Sea and is separated from the busier part of town by Nichupte Lagoon.

It’s a largeish property occupying a white modern block – a little bland maybe, with just under 300 bright guest rooms furnished in a contemporary, business-like style with large windows and a fresh décor. There are two restaurants, a café, a beach bar and a tequila bar and terrace. The hotel hosts conferences and weddings, and is also facilities and services for families with children.

The quiet location makes for a potentially peaceful few days on the beach and the hotel's soft creamy sands are among the most attractive on this section of the Mayan Riviera. We’d also recommend a night or two here at the start or end of a holiday exploring the Yucatán or further afield in Mexico (there’s parking, an important facility if you have a hire car).

What our clients say

  • Most memorable aspect: “All the visits to temples and pyramids. With very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant guides

    JB Wandsworth
  • Most Memorable Moment?: So many! Maybe the balloon ride? 

    KFD, London
  • Most memorable experiences: "Visiting our parents' house in Lomas de Chapultepec. Francisco persuaded the owners that we were genuine, which was quite an achievement. In sightseeing terms it is difficult to compare, for instance, the domestic and artistic life of Frieda Kahlo with the pyramids of Teotihuacan! We chose to go to all the places on our itinerary and all of them were memorable. Perhaps Monte Alban was the most mind blowing because I had no particular expectations of it, unlike Chichen Itza of which I had seen many pictures."

    HG, Sherborne
  • Highlights?: Tours of Mexico City & Chichen Itza, followed by our stay at Tulum.

    ER, Surbiton
  • Highlights: Boat trip to Yaxchilan - jungle and ruins were great.  Gardens and pool at Hacienda Chichen were lovely. Cuernavaca was a lovely town and we enjoyed Robert Brady museum….San Cristobal - also lovely”

    CW, London
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Lots of highlights but probably street food and archaeology in Mexico City, fiestas in Oaxaca, Hotel Esencia, cenotes and hacienda trip in Merida (and the hotel).  We also found a great restaurant in SAN Christobal.
