Festival-goers have the option to choose one of two stunning hotels that combine to make a breathtaking oceanfront festival site. Paradisus Cancún is a Four Diamond all-inclusive resort complete with remarkable service and lavish accommodations. With its lagoon-inspired pools, ten restaurants, seven bars, a golf course, a signature spa, and architecture inspired by ancient Mayan culture, guests will certainly have an unforgettable experience. 

Located right next to the Paradisus, attendees can also choose the Marriott Cancun Resort. The main stage is only a one-minute walk on the beach, and festival-goers will also have full access to Paradisus Resort. According to the Marriott, each newly-renovated room is equipped with beach-inspired decor, marble bathrooms, and private balconies with a beautiful view of the Atlantic horizon. Guests have the choice to dine at any of the 11 on-site restaurants and can treat themselves to the spa afterward. When you need a break from the musical festivities, the Marriott offers true relaxation in paradise.
