This lifestyle resort also holds some of the biggest music festivals in Mexico, with high profile DJs like Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, and Armin Van Buuren headlining shows. The energy you’ll feel while swaying in the crowd will have you coming back for more!
Armin Van Buuren gave an incredible show during our stay.
How does this resort compare to other all-inclusive resorts? Here are 5 Things You Need to Know before visiting the Melody Maker Cancun
5 >> Style & Design Goals
The decor was clean, bright, and modern, which made taking photos around the property a breeze. We had a few favorite spots that offered up privacy, relaxation, and luxury.
With recent renovations, the modern style is evident on the property and within each of the 679 rooms here. The rooms hold beautiful Cancun views that line the strip, come with complimentary Wi-Fi, and each holds a stocked minibar (maybe the most important thing of all?)!
You’ll receive premium amenities that are restocked as needed and select rooms have next-level features.
We’re talking giant soaking tubs and televisions that emerge from the base of your bed with the touch of a button!

The Beach Club has a prime location with indoor and outdoor seating with ideal views. The romantic possibilities are endless and it’s a spot to hold wedding receptions and special events.
You’ll feel like you’re exploring the jungle in the lush Asian fusion restaurant, Botanico. Even if you don’t enjoy dinner here, come for a drink and the best views of the inner property.

4 >> The Delirio Day Club is a HOT SPOT
The crowd is from all around the world, there’s an upbeat and carefree vibe, and it all comes with luxury digs and bottle service. The Delirio Day Club is literally the new hot spot of the strip for both guests and locals!
From Monday until Thursday all guests of the resort are free to use any Cabana on property. From Friday until Sunday, order a minimum of 2 bottles to reserve your premium cabana for the day and party ON!
We enjoyed a wicker seat one afternoon in the sun, got to meet new friends, and had great service (piña coladas’ kept flowing!).
3 >> Melody Maker Cancun Concerts & Music Festivals
Being the new social epicenter, plan to visit Melody Maker Cancun and attend a legendary show as they feature top DJs from around the world. These musical festivals in paradise feature the largest videomapping screen in the world (53,820 square feet of electric visual effects).
We enjoyed shows by Don Diablo, Afrojack, and Armin Van Buuren during our recent stay. The energy was palpable during each show and everyone happily bounced to the music each night. There is truly nothing else like this and we absolutely recommend this unique music festival in paradise!
2 >> Melody Maker Cancun Restaurants
We were pleasantly welcomed with a variety of options and gourmet meals at the resort. Not all-inclusive resorts are made equally and the Melody Maker Cancun left us wanting more with each bite.
Nespresso Coffee Shop
In the morning you could find us at the Coffee shop grabbing an iced Nespresso before heading to the Social Marketplace International Buffet. We enjoyed a variety of hot and cold foods, wood oven pizza, healthy options, and anything we asked for.
The Social International Market Buffet
This modern space serves up a variety of delights and comfort food. The hot and cold stations, made to order dishes, pastries, live cooking, wood fire oven, and juice bar are just some highlights!
On our last day, we embraced the lazy and ordered room service. For breakfast, you can order set menu’s that have 5-6 different courses each. We found this very helpful as no matter what we ordered, as we always had juice, fruit, sweet, and a main option. And with witty names like “Quiet Wake Up” and “High Voltage”, you’ll want to order as much as possible. Room service is a flat fee of $5 USD each time you order (unlimited number of dishes) which we found reasonable.
The Tereva Mexican Restaurant is a great place to grab a quick bite for lunch for a traditional dish for dinner. Its bright atmosphere adds to the cultural flare and we enjoyed the bright and vibrant decorative accents.
We loved the style and tasty dishes of the Asian inspired restaurant, Botanico. The set menu has elevaed classics with stunning plating techniques. We ended up returning here two nights in a row because we enjoyed it so much!
Melody Maker Restaurant
This Signature Restaurant is a must-visit and has a rotating set menu by their renowned executive Chef DeMeyers. The local and vibrant flavour combinations delighted our palettes. This intimate experience comes complete with live music and plush, classic seating and décor.
1 >> Pools & Beach
The main area has two pool areas with superb ocean views. The lower pool is where the party happens and hosts the Delirio Day Club. Both of these pools have a swim-up bar so floating in the water all day is always a possibility.
If you take the elevator to the deck, you’ll find the adults-only pool and whirlpools. Enjoy fantastic views of the Cancun views surrounding you. This area is perfect for quiet time during the day and early evening.
The beach holds over 100 plush beach beds that are unbelievably comfortable. I’m telling you, put on an extra thick layer of sunscreen on as you MAY fall asleep. Because there are so many options of where to hang out on the property, you never have to feel the stress of not having a place of your own to soak up the sun.
