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 !!!!

... spent the monring eating. We mooched round in the room for a bit and then wandered to the supermarket. We successfully managed to navigate the very complicated cancun bus system and caught a bus to plaza de isla, a shopping centre. Turns out it was really globalised and everything was pretty much the same as back home (including prices), so we ...
... gently. In the next few tanks were more, bigger, turtles, of varying kinds. We weren't sure why they were there as it looked small and boring for them. Around the outside were various lobsters, seahorses, lionfish, stingrays and an octopus in small aquariums. There was also an open tank where a man from the turtle farm was encouraging interaction with starfish, small rays and horseshoe crabs. Horseshoe crabs look docile but were terrifying to see from ...
... and had some bevies. Paul was able to join us as he worked in warp speed when we were gone. We've seen much flora and fauna and some local wildlife. The flowers are just beautiful here. They line the streets and homes throughout the area. The pool area has lots of geckos that move at lightning speed. There are also iguanas and the lagoon has crocodiles. In fact, yesterday a local man was drunk, jumped into the lagoon ...
... thirst, and the friendly barman offered us free nacho crisps and salsa as an accompaniment. In case you aren't aware, Victoria is practically phobic about tomatoes, so initially avoided the offending dip. With Russell's encouragement, she took a tentative taste, and just like the lager the previous day, she was instantly hooked! She ate the whole bowl (photo attached!), who knew! After the market, we walked to the port, which we'd seen on a map was ...
... diving until I was at about 200 psi, which will last you approx two minutes at 20 metres. You're supposed to begin descending at around 500 psi, but Aldo wanted me to experience low air, and it wasn't that bad. I kept calm, and continuously checked my gauge to make sure all was ok. Besides, if I needed it, I had the option of taking Aldo's secondary air source in an emergency, so I wasn't worried. We ascended, making a three minute ...
