Trying to decide which hotel to go with, the 4* that has a 95% Recommended rating, or the more expensive 5* with a 90% Recommended rating. Having a name to go with the property would help greatly.

5* Free Internet, free parking, Beachfront hotel, Business center, Fitness center, Pool(s), Resort Restaurant(s), Suite

 

Looking to purchase today, and of course through the Betterbidding link. Will report back my choice and hotel ID.

I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted above as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. (always use this method for your searches/purchases)

If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to each of these listings, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing and our best guess / comments for each:

 

4* Hotel Zone - Convention Center for $152.00
Free Parking
Beachfront
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Laundry
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Spa

==> best guess here would be the Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun, but if you are interested in this one i think it is the same property offered thru the following link / description for less (always confirm your dates on the landing page of any provided links):

Thank you for your help! Advice was spot on. Difference in price between Priceline Express and Hotwire was about $13/night. That paid for our ocean view upgrade.

 

Amenities:

Business Center

Restaurant

Free Internet

Indoor or Outdoor Pool

Fitness Center

No Smoking Rooms/Facilities

I went the Priceline route. By the time I checked, the PRICELINE EXPRESS price changed to $263/night. Still better than Hotwire. I tried bidding, $210, failed so I added the Cancun Airport (no five star). Rebid at $220, no go. Priceline sent me a 10% off coupon for PRICELINE EXPRESS, that knocked the price down to $236, so I figured why risk additional bidding for the less than $16/day difference in price.

Congratulations on your success!

Glad to see you received the hotel you were hoping for and that you're pleased with the results... probably even more so since you took some of the savings and put it towards an upgraded room!:smile:

An update. It turns out the extra $15/night upgrade for an ocean view room was a mistake. After a bit of research, the resort has a Grand Club room experience. Essentially, another floor or floors at the resort, separate check in, breakfast and lunch included, use of non-motorized beach equipment, etc. I was offered the upgrade for $150/night. I could have applied the $15/night savings towards the Grand Club upgrade.

Sorry to hear the room upgrade was not what you were expecting, but hopefully you still had a great trip!

 

Thanks for the additional info.

Hello,

I am evaluating to choose an hotel in the Cancun Hotel Zone North Area.

There is a 5-Star Express Deal Hotel.

The offered Deal is a 2 Double Or 1 King - Non-Smoking - Junior Suite - Ocean Front

 

Question: How do I know if the offer is "All inclusive"?
There is no information on that.. Are the 5-Star hotels in Cancun Hotel Zone North always All inclusive?

Thanks.
