Ritz Carlton Cancun Receives 16th Consecutive AAA Five Diamond Award

Ritz Carlton CancunThe Ritz Carlton Cancun has received its 16th consecutive AAA Five Diamond Award, making it the first hotel to receive this esteemed distinction.

As the award-winning luxury resort celebrates its 20th anniversary, it also remains the only AAA Five Diamond resort in North America to receive triple honors from the AAA for not only the property but for its two restaurants – The Club Grill and Fantino.

“The Ritz is one of our most elegant properties and is considered a true Cancun gem,” said Jesus Almaguer, CEO of the Cancun CVB.

“Cancun is honored to be home to hundreds of top hotels and resorts and is proud to be a fast-growing luxury destination. Whether guests are looking for high end spas, one-of-a-kind culinary delights or renowned top notch hospitality, Cancun continually ups the ante to answer the growing demands of a discerning high-end market.”

AAA rates nearly 60,000 restaurants and lodgings throughout all 50 states, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean, providing the broadest coverage of any US rating system. AAA Five Diamond Award winners comprise just 0.25 percent of AAA Rated properties.

Cancun is home to four AAA Five Diamond Award winning properties, including the Ritz, and three AAA Five Diamond Award winning restaurants (two of them located at the Ritz Carlton Cancun). With the destination’s abundance of high-end hotels, amenities, excursions and dining options, Cancun continues to reveal itself as a luxury destination that embraces more than just its beautiful Caribbean backdrop and miles of pristine white-sand beaches.
