In a remarkable and unprecedented move,the AAA Five Diamond rating was recently bestowed upon the Ritz-Carlton Cancun hotel and resort,and the impressive honor was also separately awarded to the hotel's two fine dining restaurants,Fantino and The Club Grill. This makes it the only hotel and resort in the USA,Canada and Mexico to have received this honor,out of the more than 60,000 hotels and resorts that were rated in 2011 by AAA throughout North America.
"The Ritz-Carlton Cancun is the only hotel in 2011 to achieve the Five Diamond Award with two of their own managed restaurants rated separately with Five Diamonds. The AAA is pleased to honor the Ritz-Carlton Cancun as the highest rated hotel in the USA,Canada,Mexico and the Caribbean,offering the best culinary experience of any hotel in North America," said Tony Perrone,manager of AAA national headquarters for Mexico in a recent statement to the press.
Long touted as one of the most stunning and elegant resorts in the entire world,the Ritz-Carlton Cancun boasts more than 350 luxurious guest rooms with stunning ocean views,a private beach and Beach Club,several impressive,sculpted swimming pools and a full-service day spa. All of these amenities are set against the gorgeous backdrop and history of Cancun real estate,which is located just a short distance from ancient Mayan ruins and continues to be one of the hottest tourist destinations on the entire planet.
AAA inspectors rate hotels and restaurants annually throughout North America based on experiences and impressions gathered at surprise visits. Service levels,amenities and ambience are all taken into consideration,and to give this award some perspective,only around one-fourth of one percent of the establishments that are reviewed will receive a Five Diamond Award,making the Ritz-Carlton Cancun's 15 diamonds an even more impressive achievement.
