The Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau recently announced that seven of Cancun's hotels and restaurants received the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award for 2012.
The AAA Diamond Award is one of the most thorough and trusted rating systems for restaurants and lodgings in the U.S., and Five Diamond status is the highest award level possible. Only 0.3 percent of all hotels and restaurants evaluated for this award ultimately achieve Five Diamond award status.
With three restaurants ranked as AAA Five Diamond Award winners, Cancun is placed in the top four cities with the most highly-acclaimed restaurants, or in the top spot amongst cities outside the U.S. Cancun also offers visitors four AAA Five Diamond hotels and resorts, the most out of any other international destination ranked.
Cancun's AAA Five Diamond Award-winning resorts are The Ritz-Carlton Cancun, Le Blanc Spa Resort, JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa and Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita.
Cancun's AAA Five Diamond Award-winning restaurants are Fantino and The Club Grill, both located in the the Ritz-Carlton and Le Basilic, which is found at the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Cancun Resort and Spa.
