Historical Traveler Reviews Cancun Clipper Club
Staff always smiling
Visited the Clipper Club every alternate year since 1986. Staff always smiling and courteous. Good at remembering names and helpful in special situations. Palapa bar/restaurant serves an excellent menu at almost local prices. Location is terrific on the lagoon, and CCC is right in the center of the tourist zone though 100 yards back from the main highway. Facilities are good and well maintained. Its one detraction is the approach and entrance. Not as impressive as many others around it -- a little dowdy, in fact -- but once you are inside you find the true Mexican experience.
Decent at best, good location though
Stayed here only 1 night while waiting to check into timeshare. Hotel is in a great location in the middle of all the nightlife but room was very small, hot and humid and musty smelling, and bathroom door was broke. No matter how much we ran A/C could not seem to cool the room down. Front desk staff was very nice and helpful and held our bags for a few hours after we checked out. For the money this is a good deal.
Love the Clipper Club
This year will be out 7th year at the Clipper Club. We always enjoy our visit. Excellent service by the staff. The Clipper is so close to everything, yet it is somewhat hidden from the main drag. Very quiet. Ray's Restaurant has the best food around. We can't wait to go back in July.
Love the Clipper Club
My wife and I have been going to the Clipper Club since 1986 and love it every year. It is tucked away in a secluded part of the center of everything. Great restaurants within walking distance (Italianni's, Chacko & Terre's) and some great bars....my favorite being Slices (ask for Sappo and tell him Diablo sent you).
As for the Clipper Club, we have always had outstanding maid service (always very clean) and great breakfast and lunch (always get the soup). It is true that some of the ammenities are getting worn but I'm not in Cancun for the weight room.
I'm hooked on Cancun and the Clipper Club.
Cancun Clipper Club: Intimate, seclude, clean & friendly
I am sorry to see the negative feedback about the CCC. My husband and I have been going to this resort, at least three times a year, since 1986 so I believe my insights are more than a one time glimpse/visit. While this property is NOW behind other buildings (no one can control progress), it remains intimate, secluded, quiet and secure. It is located within walking distance to beaches, shopping, nightlife and restaurants. It is an escape from the reality of Cancun itself. The only time I've ever seen a dirty room has been when we've been allowed to check-in before the maids had had a chance to clean up after departing guests. It is most certainly clean. There is maid service daily with the exception of Sundays (limited) and Mexican Holidays. There is nowhere else that we have travelled and found Staff who are friendlier and more accommodating than those working at the Clipper Club.
Lousy place and people
The Cancun Clipper Club is lousy and dirty. The maid service is minimal, the location is bad, stuck in a corner of abandon buildings, the game and rec rooms are outdated and most of the equipment don't even work. Very expensive for what they give you, which isn't much. will NEVER go back. Will NEVER go back to Cancun.
Will never go back to Cancun
We spent 5 days in Cancun and on the 2nd day we were ready to leave. The resort was much less than expected, the exercise room was old, the equipment didn't work, the hot tub was broken, the fooze ball table was tied together with strings, the hotel room smelled like cat urine and mildew, the bathrooms were dirty, they didn't change the sheets, you had to ask for everything, the people were not very nice,yet they demand their tips, it's easier to get alcohol than a cup of coffee and it's extremely expensive. It is not worth going anywhere that you have to walk with eyes on your back. I will never go back
I stayed at the Clipper Club in August 2000 and it is by far the best holiday I have ever had. Cancun is absolutley beautiful there is so many wonderful sites and attractions to see.
The Clipper club was in an excellent location close to the beach the buzzing nightlife and the many plazas.
I would recommend the clipper club to everyone very friendly staff and the cleaners are in everyday
Cant wait to go back.
Stayed here only 1 night while we were waiting to check into the timeshare. Excellent location. Walking distance to beach, and alot of nightlife. Rooms were okay. Had no hot water and the light switch wasnt working well in the bathroom. Bathrooms small but the hotel was nice and clean with friendly concierge. Good value for the money.
Small, intimate destination.
The Clipper Club was a small complex with a great location and good amenities including a small intimate restaurant. The rooms were nice and the service was great. Great value and wonderful time !!!!

... and lots of plazas. After an early arrival in the town we checked in to our hotel, picked up some breakfast and then headed off to the Maya ruins of Uxmal. We arrived at Uxmal just after 1pm, and boy was it hot....but at least it meant that we almost had the place to ourselves. Uxmal was incredibly impressive and is said to be one of the best-restored and maintained Maya ruins. Huge structures, pyramids and carvings all well maintained, really giving an ...
... re so small and vulnerable. There were lots of different turtles of different sizes and they were lovely to see and interactive with but one always wonders about the size of the pools and at what point it stops being keeping them for a few years to help them out and becomes captivity. But in general, a nice place, and turtles are thriving in the area - as we'd soon see first hand!
The next day we went diving! Now thankfully we ...
... and Carmen. Carmen is for it (job creation), Juan is against it (environmental destruction and big money interests)! They were both respectful of the other opinion, but neither was budging or backing down!! I stayed out of it!!
The biggest issue in getting to the airport was crossing the busy street from the bus stop to the airport! Carmen and I took a deep breath and made our way to the other side. The airport is fairly small and not crowded ...
... in ADO, the boarding areas, checked-in baggage counters were reminiscent of airports. The shops inside the terminal only had snacks and fruits, so V ran out to a taco stall and got some vegetarian tacos (advertised as such on the menu!) - never mind that they were heated on the same hot plate with other fleshy parts. We were now in a world far removed from the Guatemalan CA-1 chicken bus rides. We spotted a couple from the Albion on a bus adjacent to us at the ...
... up without looking and got off the bus, only to find Bobbie was mistaken and we were no where near it. We walked the rest of the way, 10 stops, probably about 15 minutes, I teased Bobbie the whole way there for being wrong, which she did not appreciate. We eventually got there, the place is set up with heaps of Forest Gump memorabilia, everything is Forest or Bubba related, right down to the menu and drinks. I love that movie it's one of my favorite so I really enjoyed this restaurant. ...
