When Tex Sen. Ted Cruz ditched his freezing state for the warm climes of Mexico, he picked the glitzy Ritz-Carlton in Cancun — the only Forbes five-star resort in the getaway city, where rooms start at $309, according to reports.
The hacienda-style resort — one of three Ritz-Carltons in Mexico – features 363 guest rooms and one of the largest beachfronts in the Cancun Hotel Zone, with 17,000 square feet of sand featuring private cabanas, Forbes reports.
“It is from this enviable vantage point that resort guests can experience the many charms of this tropical destination, all while enjoying the anticipatory service, luxury accommodations and carefully curated amenities that have come to make The Ritz-Carlton so distinctive,” the hotel boasts on its website.
The swanky hotel’s rooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows, beds wrapped in 400-count Egyptian sheets and private balconies overlooking the azure waters of the Caribbean along the barrier isle, according to the mag.
