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 !!!!

... outside and prevented us and gestured for us to look the other way among the long line of cars coming from Belize. These officials were very solicitous and showed genuine concern for our need to get into Mexico and even demanded to know where the driver of the empty bus was.
The few taxis among the long line were either full or asked for exorbitant amounts to get to Chetumal. A driver of a full taxi told us that he would drop his passengers off and ...
... on. The drinking games are more like laughing and penalising each other for everything so you just drink more. Such a fun evening. We head out to the strip at midnight and head to Congo's where it was $25 a head for open bar. We looked at the club and decided our money is best utilised elsewhere as we are both very tired, hungry and just could not be bothered doing it all again so we head back to the hostel while the boys kick on. Good decision and we are back by 1ish and crash out very ...
... and we touched down at 4.55pm. I hate travel days, but at least this is the last one until I fly home. The airport was fairly quiet and immigration and customs correspondingly quick, and my bag was already waiting for me beside the carousel by the time I got there.
The airport is much smaller than I thought considering the amount of tourists that must come through here. I bought a bottle of Herradura Silver for the room from the only Duty Free shop (the only shop I ...
... for a fair distance! Next on the itinerary for today was Cenote Ik Kil. We changed and walked down into the Cenote. It was absolutely beautiful and would be idyllic if there weren't so many people! There were many people jumping off the platform at the top of the stairs and many wearing life jackets in the water. I can understand why you would if you weren't a strong swimmer because the depth of the Cenote was 150 feet (50 metres). There were lots of catfish in the ...
We got up early to go and post some of my over-packing home! We had brekkie at David's Cuban Cafe across from the hotel and I had my first Cortadito coffee which was amazing - very strong expresso shot with sugar and milk. I was wired, we definitely need them to get through Monday's in London! The American Airlines flight to Cancun was a bumpy 1.45 hrs, turns out that was an indication of the terrible weather to come. When we arrived in Cancun we ...
