This hotel was the cheapest one in the main hotel zone that had a pool and some kind of view. Which is why we booked it.
At check in your required to wear a bracelet for you entire stay. Other hotels do this so other tourists don't sneak in and steal their lounge chairs or crowd their pool. Trust me, nobody will want to sneak into clippers club.
Just a 5 minute walk to the beach. Pool is decker and not too crowded. Nice quite environment by the lagoon.
The rooms are pretty minimal, with awful tile on the ground with the largest size grout I've ever seen that is recessed a good 5-7mm. Perfect for stubbing your toe.
Rooms don't have wifi, when I asked why they advertise wifi they said they have it in the lobby and pool. That's super convenient.
Want a fresh towel in your bathroom, couch up $1.50. Televisions are from 1995. Pool restaurant and swim up bar closes at 6.

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 !!!!

Sovit en natt skön säng suite storlek bra utsikt ingen balkong dock. Men 4våningar ingen hiss pust:)
... hours away from Cancun. Caught two collectivo’s to get there. First to Playa del Carmen (one hour) and then another to Tulum. Half the price of a bus and easy. The ruins are nice without being spectacular. Their setting by the sea makes them. The towns of Playa del Carmen and Tulum are just beach resort towns. Nice beaches again but ordinary towns.
It’s meant to be the rainy season here but so ...
... they put a some nachos in it. also I ate more burritos and chili.
At the end I went to the Mexican Disneyland called: Xcaret, its full of attractions based in mexico's History and other stuff. the good thing is that you have beach, underground water and pools, at night in a strange coliseum some actors made a musical about Mexican history until the Mexican revolution, sadly they didn't put the war against USA.(When the Alamo happened).
... at the stage down by the beach and it was some sight to behold. Most of the girls gave it socks and were throwing shapes that would have put manners on you but you could tell however that one of the girls didn't really want to do it. Her heart just wasn't in it because when it was her turn to dance she gave a really feeble attempt. It was nearly as painful to watch as Mick Burke's neck nomination video. That didn't dampen the crowds spirit ...
... shut eye. Easier said than done when it is warm and very humid, but as exhaustion was setting in, it didn't take long to fall asleep. Saturday was always planned as a day to get my bearings and recover from the flights. Therefore nothing much was planned or intended. As the hostel is located in the older downtown area, I did the needful things first - finding an ATM machine and a supermarket to stock up on fruit. I always find if you can get a ready supply of ...
