Cancun to See at Least Three Major Hotel Openings in 2008

We chatted with members of the Association of Hotels of Cancun and learned that at least three new hotels are expected to open within the year. Promotions Manager Fabiola Zarate Guaida told us that the Westin Del Mar and the Palm Beach resort will both open before year’s end with no specific time frame announced.

The Westin Del Mar will have 400 rooms and be located about 10 minutes from the airport, while the Palm Beach resort will have 370 rooms. Also expected to open this year is the 396-room Grand Oasis Caribbean. A Hipotel hotel, with 1,800 rooms, is expected to open by the end of the year or early 2009.
