The sun never sets on the Caribbean at any hotel in Cancun. It sets on the bay. The fronts of the hotels face the bay and some very good restaurants that feature balconies for outdoor dining. The back of the hotels and all the rooms face the sea. Ellis and I have never seen a Cancun sunset in the seventeen years we've been coming to this warm-weather-seaside-three-and-a-half-hours-non-stop-away-from-home-resort-town.
