Nestled along the pristine shores of the Caribbean Sea, Cancun offers a world of accessible, all-inclusive resorts for your next vacation. They have everything you desire right on-site. From beachfront bliss with ocean views and relaxing pool areas, to gourmet dining experiences and comprehensive spa treatments, these resorts ensure a memorable stay. Plus, there’s something for everyone, including park and playground areas with pool slides for the whole family to enjoy.

Most of the resorts offer comprehensive accessibility, with roll-in showers in the rooms, to ramps onto the beaches. One of the best parts of these resorts is the first-rate customer experience. If you require assistance getting to the beach in your wheelchair or going up a ramp, the commonality with these establishments is that the staff is almost always willing to step in. Plus, you’re essentially in paradise. Are you ready for a vacation where you can eat and drink all day long with ocean views? These are the resorts you should consider.

Sun Palace

There are two accessible rooms available, one called the accessible room and the other is the junior suite. They both offer different accessibility features, but I would recommend booking the accessible room due to it having a roll-in shower and toilet grab bars, something the junior suite doesn’t have.

There are four different restaurants onsite, each with its unique flair. With snacks and sweets available whenever you want, you can drink and eat all day long here.
