Where is Planet Hollywood Cancun located?

Although it has Cancun in the name, Planet Hollywood Cancun is located in a new area called Costa Mujeres about 40 minutes from Cancun International Airport.

This peninsula has a lagoon on one side and a long stretch of pristine white beach on the other.

There are not many attractions in that area, but tours do pick up from the lobby and you can always reserve a taxi or transport service to bring you to Cancun for shopping.

Love this area, but Planet Hollywood Cancun Weddings are not for you? Check out other hotels for weddings in Playa and Costa Mujeres.

Our experience with Planet Hollywood Cancun

Well, we were there on opening day and have personal relationships with the weddings and sales departments. We have also worked closely with that hotel chain, Blue Diamond Resorts, and have had many wedding couples at the Royalton in the area.

We are excited about our upcoming wedding groups and look forward to booking even more weddings at Planet Hollywood Cancun.

Pros and cons of Planet Hollywood Cancun

PROS PLANET HOLLYWOOD CANCUN

  • The food. We were two carnivores, one vegetarian and one teen that lives only for room service. Everyone in our family was more than satisfied with the options, the taste, and the presentation.
  • The hotel and its services. Young, old, and everything in between. This hotel has something for everyone. With a slew of daily activities and nightly entertainment, a great kids club, Planet Play ($) which is teen heaven and a fabulous gym, this hotel will please families and groups. Perfect for a wedding group with different guest dynamics.
  • The beach. OH THE BEACH!

CONS PLANET HOLLYWOOD CANCUN

  • New hotel kinks. Well, like any new hotel, there are things to iron out. As of now, the hotel is not completely open and it will take a few months for the hotel staff to learn their stuff and for service to become optimal.
  • Minibar. If you like to have a beer on your balcony at the end of the day, forget it. The minibars do not include any alcoholic beverages.
  • Service. Right now, this is the major hotel kink that needs to be worked on, but naturally with time, the teams will learn to work together and will get to know the property and how to get what they need.

Planet Hollywood Cancun and COVID

With the new testing policies in place for travelers returning to Canada and the US, the hotel has put the following measures in place.

For clients from the US:
Free antigen tests are done on-Property with a 4-night stay/ Result available same day/ $60 per test otherwise.

For Canadians
PCR test done on property / $170.00 USD per test / Result within 12-24h

Free Medical Assistance coverage to cover the cost of any accidents or illness, including COVID-19 related medical needs until March 31, 2021. You must register for this service prior to arrival.

Rooms and Sections

Family Section. The Family Section has 566 rooms in 9 different room categories. Fabulous for larger families as you can reserve a 1, 2 or 3 bedroom suite. You can also upgrade to Star Class.

The basic junior suite room has 1 king or two double beds and a sofa bed. The bathroom has 2 sinks, a shower and lots of mirrors.

Adult Scene. 332 rooms in 3 room categories. You can also upgrade to Star Class.

Star Class. Star class is an upgrade level of service. It includes a personal agent (similar to a butler) to help you with your private check-in, upgraded room amenities, and restaurant reservations.

Most contact is made via WhatsApp, so I suggest you download the app before you arrive. Star Class also includes complimentary access to hydrotherapy at the spa and access to an exclusive pool.

The Beach

WOW. The beach is gorgeous. You can walk for miles in either direction. It is very wide, with soft sand and there are no rocks on entry when accessing the water.

Due to the location, this is an area that is less prone to sargassum seaweed. The water isn’t necessarily clear, but blue and turquoise.

As of now, there are not that many hotels in the area, so you have the impression that it is a private and remote beach.

Food & Drink

Since the hotel was newly opened and the occupancy was quite low, restaurants were open on rotation.

For the adults-only section, there are two restaurants exclusive 18+ which are the Brazzo Brazilian and the Catch Seafood restaurant.

In addition, guests booked at the Adult Scene have full access to all restaurants located on the family-friendly side.

The main buffet was only open for breakfast. With current COVID regulations, all food is served to you. They had a large variety of options ranging from a smoothie station, freshly made crepes, omelettes, chilaquiles and lots of breads, pastries and fruit.

Lunch time options included Guy Fieri’s for burgers and fries (insider tip, they have a veggie option, available on request) and the Italian restaurant.

Dinner time options changed nightly and you can consult what is available when on the television in the room.

We ate extremely well. Rarely is everyone in my family satisfied with the food as we all have different tastes and dietary requirements. We were all extremely happy and would go back tomorrow to eat there again!

Activities, Sports and Kids Club

Again, the television in the room outlines all activities to take place and any classes planned by the fitness center.

Sports include basketball, tennis, and a variety of water sports available down by the beach. Any activities occurring in the ocean do require a $5 per person reef fee paid once during your stay.

pedal water kayak and other water sports on the beach

The kids club is available for kids aged 4-12 and includes indoor and outdoor areas. Please note that right now with current COVID restrictions it may be closed or have a very reduced capacity.

There are two thematic water parks for small kids as well as a waterslide for older kids/adults and a lazy river.

Although there is no teens club on the property, there is Planet Play, which would appeal to most teens and many people of varying ages. With a trampoline park, virtual reality booths, an all sports simulator and more, get ready to spend a few extra dollars here.

Prices are reasonable and vary from $7-$12 for 30 minutes but you can also opt for a day pass.

Exchange Privileges

If you stay at Planet Hollywood Cancun you do not have access to any other resorts in the area. If you stay at the Adults Scene, you do have full access to the family side. If you stay on the family side, you can purchase a day pass to access the Adults Scene (currently $35US per person per day).

What makes this resort different from other all-inclusive resorts

The branding at Planet Hollywood is amazing. From a touch light logo on the bathroom mirror to the stars on the pool and beach cabanas, you know that you are at Planet Hollywood.

Their slogan is vacation like a star, and they do have certain special touches like a visual red carpet when entering the lobby, and just a lot of BLING Hollywood feel around the resort.

One interesting aspect of this resort is that they have a mini-movie theater on-site that offers two showings daily.

Planet Hollywood Wedding Venues

planet hollywood cancun wedding locations

Check out a full playlist of all the wedding venues

Rooftop Wedding Venue – Building 10 or Building 24

The initial plans had this area’s name as building 10 but now that the hotel has been constructed, it is actually the rooftop of building 24. Either way, call it what you want, it will be GORGEOUS.

This area will incur a rental fee of $1500, but you can use it for your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. It ensures privacy, beautiful views and a nice breeze.

We were unable to visit as it was not completed yet (due for Springtime) but rest assured, we will go back once it is finished and get you the video and the scoop.

Planet Hollywood Beach Wedding Venues

I think I may have mentioned the beach before? If you have dreamed of a beach wedding in Cancun, this spot is amazing.

There are two areas on the beach for weddings at Planet Hollywood Cancun.

1- Located in front of the family-friendly area

2 – Located on the adults-only beach.

Both are adjacent to beach bars, which can be used for cocktail hours or reception dinners.

There could potentially be two beach weddings scheduled the same day, but luckily the beach is so long and wide, your group would be separate from the other party.

In the case that you are allocated the beach in front of the adults-only area, please note that the children will need to access down the beach and not through the adults-only section of the hotel.


CAPACITY: Maximum capacity for ceremony and reception is 400 guests // AVAILABLE FOR: Ceremony, Cocktail Hour & Reception

Palm Pavillion

This area has an indoor/outdoor concept. You can have your ceremony outdoors and then move into the air conditioning for your reception dinner.
