5 Cancun Hotels With Private Plunge Pools

See recent posts by Stefanie Waldek

Cancun might have a bit of a reputation as a party-centric beach bonanza popular with young adults, but sometimes, visitors just want to get away from it all. What better way to do that than with a private plunge pool? Guests staying at one of these five hotels have the option to book a room with a personal oasis. So, you could enjoy the serenity of your little paradise during the day, then indulge in Cancun’s party atmosphere at night. Not a bad way to get the best of both worlds!


1. Beloved Playa Mujeres

If you’re looking for a sanctuary, book a stay at Beloved Playa Mujeres. Its sleek, modern rooms start at 960 square feet and only go up from there. A handful of room categories offer private plunge pools, including the Casita Suite (shown here), the Two-Story Casita Suite, and the Terrace Suite. If you’d like to leave your retreat, you can enjoy whirlpools and a swim-up bar at the shared pools, and there’s a 35,000-square-foot spa for more relaxation.

2. Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort

Guests who book the Presidential Suite at the Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa resort have access to private pool (a lap pool at that — not even just a plunge pool!) in a serene courtyard. If you don’t feel like splurging for that accommodation, there are other options available with private pools, including the Preferred Club Junior Suite Ocean Front with Private Pool and the Preferred Club Master Suite Ocean Front with Private Pool.

3. Oasis Sens

This adult-only, all-inclusive resort offers several Suites with private plunge pools, and some have whirlpool tubs. The rooms are decorated in a minimalist style, but they have a surprise to change their look — mood lighting behind the bed can be set to gradually change colors for a romantic ambience or play in a funky pattern for a party vibe.

4. Excellence Playa Mujeres

The Excellence Club Two-Story Rooftop Terrace Suite with Ocean Front at the Excellence Playa Mujeres

A handful of the room categories at Excellence Playa Mujeres offer exclusive water features, like swim-up access or a private plunge pool. We recommend the Excellence Club Two-Story Rooftop Terrace Suite Oceanfront, which has this lovely rooftop plunge pool shown here. Note that if you want an ocean view, you’ll likely have to pay up for the higher category rooms, though all rooms have balconies.

5. Finest Playa Mujeres

The higher-tier suites at the Finest Playa Mujeres offer guests private outdoor space with a plunge pool. The Junior Suites, shown here, even offer a private lawn, though it’s not hard to see your neighbors through the shrubs. For more privacy, guests can book the Excellence Club Two-Story Rooftop Terrace Suite, which has a hot tub on its private roof.
