Travel Blogs from Cancun
This place is not so popular with backpackers, partly because it's so expensive and partly because there’s no culture here. It is famous for beaches and partying (Spring Break). Luckily we found a nice hotel with a good location for very little money, called the Cancun Clipper Club.
Cancun was nothing but Jungle 30 years ago when it …
Firstly, apologies to any avid readers for the delay in updates. It's been quite a hectic month in which we literally haven’t had a moment (or should that read, a 'sober’ moment) to update travel blogs or to keep in touch generally. However, with the aid of diaries and a crystal clear memory (??!) We can now reliably inform you of our …
... we were trying to find something to eat for dinner. It's a large area with a stage that has a Palapas roof. It's used for local shows but local kids practice their breakdancing and acrobatics on it. In the evenings there are vendors selling sweet treats, balloons, ice cream and motorised cars that parents can hire for their children. It has a play area, tables under large umbrellas and hot food vendors all down one side. I refuse to ...
... Jenem und Jenes mit Anderem kombiniert. Nachdem ich eine Stunde lang die Mandeln mitsamt meiner Finger geraspelt habe, nur weil ich die vorbereiteten nicht finden konnte, ich würd sogar behaupten, dass Walmart diese nicht führt, habe ich den ersten Kuchen in den Ofen geschoben. Ob das gutgeht, nach all dem Aufwand hoffentlich - aber unwahrscheinlich. ****, das wär hart. Glücklicher-, und überraschenderweise sind beide Kuchen für Juliáns ...
... for East Timor. Still it's all good fun. Saw some Brazilian ladies at the pool yesterday in their intsy bintsy bikinis. So now I understand the Brazilian - you would have to have one of those because there is precious little fabric in the clothing! They sure stand out those ladies and they were having a great time too! However unfortunately Petes illness has continued so today we went back to the hospital and put in a claim under our insurance. What a rigmarole - it's so easy ...

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.
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 !!!!
