The Best Overwater Bungalows with Private Pool in Cancun in 2023.
A classic feature of overwater bungalows is the private pool, most usually an infinity pool, on the terrace overlooking the ocean.
Some may consider this an unnecessary feature - a pointless extravagance - seeing as you probably have some of the world's most inviting waters just feet below you already.
The pool isn't trying to compete with the ocean though. The first thing a private pool has, which the ocean doesn't, is a raised view of the ocean. A lovely aesthetic that looks particularly good in photos.
The second is that no matter how private the section of the sea surrounding your bungalow may be it can never be fully secluded.
The private pool though is tucked away on the terrace, thereby hidden from the view of your fellow guests.
Here then are our choices for the best overwater bungalows & water villas with private pool in Cancun in 2023.
Resorts with Overwater Bungalows in Cancun? There are only three!
Only three resorts near Cancun, and in Mexico in general, have overwater bungalows, and they are: Palafitos El Dorado, Rosewood Mayakoba and Banyan Tree Mayakoba. All three of which are just south of Cancun, in Playa del Carmen.
Of the three that do have them it is very difficult to judge which is better overall but we preferred the Palafitos bungalows at El Dorado as they have more of that traditional Polynesian vibe we have grown to like. Others though will doubtless prefer the sleek, modernity of both Rosewood Mayakoba's and Banyan Tree Mayakoba's.
Are they luxury resorts?
Yes, they are definitely luxury resorts - all three are 5-star in fact. Palafitos El Dorado is also adults-only and the only all-inclusive resort of the three. The Rosewood Mayakoba resort is family friendly but the overwater bungalows are for adults only. Banyan Tree then is family friendly - both the overwater bungalows and the resort in general.
Sounds wonderful! But what are prices like?Sadly prices are not cheap! Budget at least $1,000 USD per night for a stay in an overwater bungalow in Cancun.
