Club 91 benefit includes-

  • Pre-arrival personalized vacation planning. 
  • Access to the 91 Club lounge. 
  • Complimentary food includes midday snacks, afternoon tea, dessert, Hors d’oeuvres, and late-night snacks.

Hospitality Services

JW Marriott provides evening turndown services in all the rooms. You won’t get this service at Marriott Cancun. It is a nice feeling when your bed is freshly made before you go to sleep after a long tiring day at the beach. 

In-Room Amenities

JW Marriot and Marriott Cancun have some different in-room amenities. Unlike Marriott Cancun, JW Marriott has writing desks, so, if you like to have some work done during your stay, it will be convenient. Also, this resort has extra electric outlets near the desks for your computer.

In JW Marriott “bed types are not guaranteed” guestrooms, cribs, and Rollaway beds are not permitted. Whereas, 1 crib and a rollaway bed are permitted in all the Marriott Cancunguest rooms. 

Premium suits in JW Marriott have wet bars. On the other hand, no rooms in Marriott Cancun have this facility. 

There are radios in every room of the Marriott Cancun, unlike the JW Marriot. 

Other in-room amenities are almost similar in both resorts. For example, both resorts have pillowtop mattresses, featherbeds, duvets, LED TVs with premium movie channels,  iPod docks, alarm clocks, safes, chairs, etc. 

Laundry and Drycleaning Service

Both resorts provide laundry or dry cleaning services. However, there is no in-room washer or dryer in any of these resorts. 

You can also go to nearby laundry services. From JW Marriottoe the nearby laundry service called “Lavender Laundromat” is 7 minutes walking distance away. And from the Marriott resort, it is 9 minutes of walking distance away. 

All rooms in JW Marriott and Marriott Cancun are equipped with an ironing board and iron. 

Neither JW Marriott nor Marriott Cancun provides individual dryers/washers in their amenities. 

Room Cleanliness

From my personal experience, JW Marriott is cleaner and more well-kept than Marriott Cancun. The lobby area, concierge desk, etc. was squeaky clean in JW Marriott. 

During my stay at Marriott Cancun, I heard one of the guests complaining about her room. According to the guest, the bed wasn’t made properly and there was trash on the room and balcony floor. It could be an honest mistake on the part of the hotel as that was pick season and the staff was extremely busy. 

Bath and Bathroom Features

The JW Marriott bathrooms are much nicer and have better features than the Marriott Cancun bathroom. 

Some of the premium rooms in JW Marriott have 1.5 bathrooms, which means, you will get one full bathroom and one relatively small bathroom with only a shower and toilet. Marriott Cancun has no such options. 

JW Marriott has a separate bathtub and shower in all the rooms. On the contrary, Marriott Cancundoes don’t have bathtubs in their bathrooms. Not even in the presidential suits. It can be a disappointment for some people. 

Bathrooms in both resorts have marble flooring and white and grey walls. But the JW Marriott’s oversized bathrooms have an ocean-blue colored accent wall that changes the overall ambience. 

Unlike Marriott resort, you will get light makeup mirrors, robes, and slippers in every JW Marriott bathroom.
