Panama Jack Resorts Cancun offers fun for the entire family with outstanding entertainment, exciting activities for all ages, contemporary accommodations with furnished terraces and ocean views, and multiple delicious dining options. The resort’s impeccable service begins at check-in and does not end until after your departure. Matias Klein, the resort’s general manager, says, “The staff is our biggest asset. We can have the best decorations and accommodations in the world, but without the service from our hearts it is worthless.”
Check-in begins with a complimentary mini popsicle and a glass of champagne. In the last year, the lobby and all guest rooms received a remodel, and the Panama Jack Coffee Co. and Bar Amigos were added to the resort’s dining options. December 15, 2018, is the expected completion date for upgrades to the spa, restaurants and other public areas.
Choose Your Suite
Accommodations range from a standard 387-square-foot room all the way up to opulent presidential suites. All rooms include Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, air conditioning, stocked minibar, coffee maker, hairdryer, balcony and butler service. The spacious 1366-square-foot presidential suite includes a large living and dining area comfortable for four or five people. Guests staying in the presidential suite can enjoy views from either one of the two ocean-view balconies or simply spend time relaxing in their private whirlpool tub located in the separate bedroom. The resort affords six swim-up suites where guests share a lap pool right outside their ocean-front door.
Dine However and Wherever
Panama Jack is an all-inclusive resort where you can opt to eat in your room or dine in any one of the resort’s 13 different bars, restaurants or eateries. If you are an early riser, begin the morning with a rich delicious cup of coffee and one or more decadent pastries as early as 6:00 a.m. at Panama Jack Coffee Co. If you are still hungry, indulge in the scrumptious all-day buffet at Ventanas, or enjoy a bite of Caribbean, Mexican, or Mongolian fare at the waterfront restaurant Deck 74 which is open for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The resort boasts 24-hour room service, and snacks and drinks are available onsite from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.
Resort casual attire is the norm during dinner, but cuisine offered at the specialty restaurants is prepared by professional chefs that take pride in presenting their tasty dishes with gourmet flair. Viaggio, the Italian restaurant, serves al dente pasta, succulent seafood, and delicious meat dishes, or for appetizing Mexican food spend an evening dining at Casa de Rosa.
Make Celebrations Memorable
Important occasions deserve something extra. Make arrangements for private parties on the terrace, rooftop or beach directly with the hotel. Whether you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner to celebrate with someone special or a group event featuring a multi-course dinner, fire dancers and live dance music, the staff at Panama Jack will coordinate and design the perfect evening.
Picture yourself stepping onto a private beach. A smartly dressed waiter greets you with a specialty cocktail and leads you to a table dressed in white linens under twinkling lights. Entranced by the waves crashing onto the beach, you are momentarily interrupted when a plate with shrimp, apples and mixed greens is placed before you. The band begins to play as the sun dips below the horizon leaving clouds draped in a glow of oranges and yellows.
The evening continues with one course after another, and you dine while being lulled into a state of splendor while listening to the music. Throughout the evening your glass is continually replenished with carefully selected wines paired with each dish. The band takes a break, and fire dancers light up the night sky with their daredevil tricks. The band returns and you grab your glass of wine and dance the remainder of the night away with the sand between your toes.
Explore the Yucatan
The resort staff is happy to help you plan your day offsite with delightful excursions to Melipona May Bee Sanctuary, the Mayan pyramid Chichen Itza, local cenotes and other exciting places in the Yucatan. The nearby marina offers equipment for kayaking and other non-motorized water activities. If you plan to spend your day at the resort, there are numerous fun activities—water aerobics, tequila volleyball, culinary, cocktail, and line-dancing classes, trivia and ping pong games and even salsa lessons.
Experience Fun for the Entire Family
Panama Jack is perfect for the family. Camp Jack is open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Babysitting is available for kids ages 4-12 giving parents the opportunity to rest, relax, and delight in their vacation knowing that the kids are safe and entertained. Kids enjoy arts and crafts, water sports and mini-golf, or they can play in the splash park featuring seven waterslides, two splash zones, a pool, a pirate ship and a medieval castle.
A new building and teen program for kids ages 13-17 are currently underway. This building will be constructed as a private venue for teens to socialize, hang out, and enjoy Wii competitions and video games.
The Aura Spa offers a hydrotherapy area, salon service and numerous spa treatments. Staff is professionally trained, and my massage was both soothing and invigorating.
Panama Jack boasts spectacular nightly entertainment and a variety of pop-up surprise performers throughout the day. One afternoon a mime approached me in the lobby and executed several mesmerizing magic tricks. Evening events change daily, but guests are assured fun-filled nights with upbeat live music, karaoke and movie nights by the pool. Plan your next family vacation at Panama Jack Resorts Cancun.
