CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort Accommodations
CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort Dining
Hotel restaurants include:
- Sasi Thai specializes in modern Thai cuisine in a breezy, open-air setting. Our meal here on the first night of our stay was an entertaining romp through the cuisine of Asia, from shrimp and vegetable spring rolls to a variety of curries and entrees ranging from Peking Duck to Caribbean lobster with a Thai twist. Pay close attention to the little chili symbols on the menu: some of the dishes are seriously hot (we ate a pepper here that literally made us cry).
- La Capilla Argentina, CasaMagna’s steakhouse, offers a range of Argentinean cuisine, from premium cuts of meat and grilled seafood, to a specialty chateaubriand. La Capilla also houses its own “wine cave,’ boasting 200 different labels from around the globe.
- Mikado offers a fusion of Japanese and Thai cuisine. Menu items include sushi and Teppanyaki style cuisine.
- La Isla is CasaMagna’s poolside grill offering classics like salads, sandwiches, and fresh seafood. Burgers here are excellent, and a shaded patio gives you the option of enjoying a meal at beach level while enjoying the sounds of the crashing waves or watching a volleyball game nearby.
- Champions Sports Bar has 40 TVs, pool tables, a dance floor, live DJ, and nightly karaoke. The menu features American classics like wings and burgers. Again, this is no mere hotel knockoff of a sports bar, but a huge, bustling place that attracts fans from across the Cancun resort area when a big game is on.
CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort Activities and Amenities
Don't forget the shared amenities between the two adjoining Marriotts. If you just want a quick treatment, the spa here is fine, but for a more full-service experience we'd recommend the larger spa at the JW Marriott next door. Similarly, the large hot tub attracts a big crowd at night, which is great for socializing; but if you want a more private experience, check out the smaller outdoor jacuzzis at the JW.
The beach is a big attraction, but the Cancun strand has been battered by the sea in recent years, and a restoration project has been only partially successful. Tons of sand have been added to counter erosion, but when we visited the ocean had eaten away at some of this, creating a cliff of sand several feet high that you have to navigate to get from the hotel to the shoreline.
Offsite amenities range from the nightclubs of Cancun to the newly reopened Maya Museum in the Hotel Zone; other big attractions, such as the Xel-Ha park and the Mayan ruins at Tulum, require a drive away from the barrier beach and along the Riviera Maya coastal road.
