“This is what you expect in a place with Cancun close by. The temperature is a perfect 75-85 degrees. The ocean is still warm enough in December to be swimmable. The resort is all exclusive, so you will never be too far without a drink in your hand or a table of food close by. The resort caters to both families with plenty of kid activities and adults with adult only pools and a night club available to those inclined. Highly recommended if relaxation is your goal.” – Chris H. 1/19

All of the staff were very professional and helpful — especially our breakfast server Moises. The facilities are beautiful, and the ocean is spectacular. Highly recommended!” – Jim A. 1/19
“I recently was invited to a wedding at Now Sapphire Cancun. I have been in so many resorts, but this one deserves 5 stars and more. Extremely friendly and nice (genuinely nice, not pretending) employees, whoever employed them really took time to pick the right ones. I loved the piano player on the pool at night, very romantic, also two singers singing Pavaroti songs, it was so beautiful. The resort has little waterfalls everywhere, the poolside was wonderful. Overall it was absolutely fantastic experience. Next time I go to Cancun, this is the resort I will choose to stay.” – Cecile R. 11/18
“Beautiful resort with awesome amenities. The beach was inundated with seaweed (obviously something no one can control) but they were working extremely hard to clear it in front of the resorts beach. I would recommend this resort to families, friends of any age and especially destinations weddings, which is the reason I visited. They had incredible beach wedding set-ups and fantastic additions to wedding packages (we had a beach bonfire and an AMAZING fire show, so cool!!). Definitely take a look at this resort if your planning on visiting the Mayan Riveria.” – Kody B. 8/18
