Wyndham Alltra Cancun Review: A Cancun All-Inclusive for Families

Wondering if Wyndham Alltra Cancun is the right resort for your trip? This Cancun All Inclusive for families, couples, or groups of friends has plenty to offer: read on to discover it all! 

Wyndham Alltra Cancun is a magnificent all-inclusive resort located in Cancun Hotel Zone, right by the beach.

Boasting a private beach area, swimming pools, and a wide range of activities, this is one of the best family resorts in Cancun, as well as a perfect retreat for couples looking for a relaxing yet stimulating experience. 

We were invited by Wyndham Alltra Cancun to come and experience all the resort has to offer, and the days we spent at the resort were some of the best days on our trip.

Check out the comprehensive review of this Cancun All Inclusive for families (but not just for families!), so you find out everything it has to offer for a glorious vacation in the sun! 

THE LOCATION

Cancun doesn’t need much of an introduction, does it? It’s one of the most famous vacation spots in the entire world, and it’s often a short, direct flight from many US cities.

However, there’s much more to do here than just relax on the beach – although if that’s your thing, I can’t say I blame you! To plan the perfect trip, check out this post about the best things to do in Cancun.

THE ALL-INCLUSIVE CONCEPT

Formerly known as Panama Jack Cancun Resorts, Wyndham Alltra Cancun is an All Inclusive hotel under Wyndham’s new brand, Alltra, designed as an upper-midscale segment accessible to all travelers.

Offering a great value for its top service, Alltra has been inaugurated very recently and its first and only resorts to date are this one and Wyndham Alltra Playa del Carmen, which we also visited on our last trip to Mexico.

This All-Inclusive hotel in Cancun provides all meals and drinks and also offers room service to get breakfast, treats, or dinner delivered to your suite. This way you can dine alfresco on your terrace or snuggle in bed with a cup of coffee when you don’t feel like going to the buffet.

We mostly dined in the restaurants/food stands as we were on a mission to try them all, but we ordered breakfast one morning and this above is the spread that came. Table included! They came with a larger table so we would be more comfortable.

Being one of the most family friendly all inclusive resorts in Cancun, it boasts kids and teens clubs, as well two swimming pools and 7 restaurants on-site, all of which you’ll have access to during your stay.

Daily and nightly entertainment, health & wellness activities, and waiter service in the pool and beach.

WYNDHAM REWARDS PROGRAM

Since this Cancun hotel all-inclusive is part of the Wyndham family, you can use your points to book a night here. Currently, one night can be secured for 30,000 Wyndham Rewards Points.

I’ve been a Wyndham Rewards Diamond member for over a member, and I keep accumulating points and nights because there are so many nice Wyndham properties around the world! Plus, becoming a member gives you extra perks such as late check out and upgrades. As a Diamond member, I get suite upgrades subject to availability.

I’m currently writing this review from a 4-star Wyndham property in Dubai, and can you believe we got upgraded to a suite… all for 42 USD a night??

THE BEACH

The very best thing about Wyndham Alltra Cancun is hands down, the beach. The resort in fact boasts a private beach with sun loungers and cabanas. The beach is white, powdery sand, and the color of the water is so much better than any other location in Mexico (except maaaaybe Isla Mujeres).

And the sunset, guys! The sunsets in Cancun really hit. Make reservations for dinner a bit later and stay at the beach until sunset – so worth it!

Sun loungers and umbrellas are for all guests on a first-come-first-served basis, while the cabanas are extra.

However, I highly recommend booking a cabana for you and your party, even more so if you’re traveling in high season. It costs around 60 USD to book a cabana for a whole day. The cabana comes with a cooler full of soft drinks and beer, a bottle of sparkling wine, and very attentive drink service.

We were so lucky to have booked a cabana on a sunny, glorious day, and we truly enjoyed being able to relax on the comfy mattress. Plus, when you book a cabana, you’re on a stretch of beach that is way less crowded than the area with the sun loungers.

THE FACILITIES

The resort boasts an outdoor swimming pool by the beach. This has a waiter service, so you can get your drinks delivered while you soak your feet in the water, or you can walk to the bar to get your fill of cocktails, beer, and soft drinks.

Since the resort is family friendly, on the other side of the property you’ll also find two splash pools with water slides for kids.

#Hashtag is a program for teenagers aged 13 to 17, and Camp Alltra is a splash park designed to entertain the youngest ones, making it one of the few Cancun family resorts with water park. 

There’s also a fitness center and a full-service spa, a dozen dining outlets including restaurants, bars, and lounges, live entertainment every evening, and venues to celebrate weddings or other special occasions. 

THE ROOMS

This family-friendly all-inclusive Cancun hotel features 458 rooms, divided into different categories. 

The Standard Room accommodates up to 4 people, featuring 2 king or double beds, an en-suite bathroom with toiletries, and a seating area with table and chairs, as well as garden views and a minibar.  

The Junior Suite offers either garden or lagoon views, features two king or double beds, a private balcony with a hammock, and a comfortable seating area with dining furniture.

We stayed in a Lagoon View Junior Suite and it was spacious with great views of the sunset over the lagoon.

There’s also an Oceanfront, Premium and Junior Suite with Ocean Views, and a Beachfront Walkout Junior Suite, with a walkout terrace and direct access to the beach, as well as a Family Junior Suite that accommodates 2 adults and 3 kids, and features a furnished private balcony, a hammock, and easy access to Camp Alltra. 

The Master Suite is a 645 square feet room with a king-sized bed and a sofa that accommodates 4 guests. A stocked minibar, a seating area with table and chairs, and exclusive access to Alltra VIP Lounge are also included.

The Oceanfront Master Suite also features a balcony with a hot tub, and so does the Ocean View Master Suite, as well as one bedroom with a king-sized bed, a sofa, and access to Alltra VIP Lounge. 

For something special, choose the Junior Suite Beachfront Infinity Swim-Up which comes with a king-sized bed and a sleeper sofa, ocean views, and a balcony with a hammock and a semi-private infinity pool that is shared by just a few rooms.

The largest accommodation type this resort in Cancun, Mexico has to offer is the 1,366 square-feet Presidential Suite, with two private balconies, an ample living and seating area, two double hot tubs and an exclusive beach cabana, as well as access to the Alltra VIP Lounge. The suite accommodates 4 people in a kind-sized bed and sleeper sofa.

THE FOOD

Viaggio

Viaggio is an Italian restaurant that serves the best traditional pasta dishes you’ll find, as well as different kinds of meat and seafood. It opens from 6 PM until 10.30 PM. 

The staff surprised us with a table arranged in the beautiful setting of the wine cellar, and it was so romantic! I had the gnocchi with gorgonzola which was so good.

At Sunset

At Sunset is a casual join offering healthy and international options. Think salads with superfoods, grilled salmon, and poke bowls. Bonus: make reservations for dinner, sit on the terrace and admire the sunset over the lagoon. They also have some great cocktails, so make sure to order one. At Sunset is open from 5 PM to 10.30 PM.

Salsa  

Salsa is a beachside taco bar where you can get tasty tacos for a quick bite before, after, or during your beach adventures. 

I went on a DIY taco tour in Cancun to research the best taco joints in the city for an upcoming article I’m writing, and I can tell you that these were some of the best tacos we had. Make sure to try the Quesabirria (quesadilla with stew meat) and the mushroom tacos.

Casa de Rosa

At Casa de Rosa you can find authentic Mexican cuisine in a space with an hacienda décor and the most delicious and tasty local flavors. The restaurant is open for dinner from 5 PM to 10.30 PM.

The tostadas they brought us for an appetizer were SO good, and make sure to pair it up with a margarita! As for the main dish, you can’t leave without trying the “molcajete”, a traditional dish made of various types of meat and vegetables.

Azul

Azul is a waterfront grill and restaurant specializing in Asian cuisine, but it also serves local dishes with wonderful views of the beach. It’s open all morning for breakfast, and again at 6 PM for tasty dinners. 

Kaa Bar & Lounge

Located in the lobby, Kaa Bar features daily live music, a lounge to relax and a large drinks menu to sip all day through, from its opening time at 11 AM to midnight. 

Las Olas Bar

Las Olas means the waves, and this beachside bar provides all your favorite drinks, from simple beer to elaborate cocktails, so you can savor them in a beach cabana or lounger watching the sea. It opens from 10 AM to 6.30 PM. 

Alltra VIP Lounge

Located on the 6th floor, Alltra VIP Lounge features an open bar, snacks, and a selection of hors d’oeuvres to enjoy from 10 AM to 10 PM. The VIP Lounge is reserved for selected suites, so it’s a quiet place, perfect to relax or get some work done.

A shout out to Patricio who made some incredible-looking (and tasting!) cocktails. If you have access to this lounge, make sure to come here to get cocktails as here it’s the only place you can get premium spirits.

THE ACTIVITIES

There are pretty much countless activities offered by this all inclusive in Cancun for families, couples, and individuals, from live entertainment to watersports and wellbeing practices.

The hotel features nightly live performances, music, and themed parties, as well as Zumba classes at the beach and pool Aqua Aerobics, fitness lessons, and beach volleyball and soccer.

Wine and tequila tastings, yoga, and participation in the turtle release program between August and November are also great activities to take part in.    

THE SPA

Aura Spa is home to a beauty salon with plenty of treatments tailored to your skin and style, and offers a wide range of massages, therapies, and body rituals designed to relax your body, mind, and soul.  

We opted for a beach Swedish massage, and it was a perfect choice. Because why would you want to get a massage in a room, when you can get it while listening to the sound of waves? We visited during the hottest month, but it was fine for us.

The spa also boasts a hydrotherapy circuit which includes an outdoor tub, a sauna, and a steam bath that will detoxify and rejuvenate your body. The hydrotherapy circuit is free to be used by all guests, just make sure to make a reservation so you can use the hot tub with no other guests.

RATES

Rates at Wyndham Alltra Cancun All Inclusive Resort start at $375 per night for 2 adults. The price of course varies depending on availability and the time of the year you visit.
