Has anybody been to the Banyan tree or Nizuc hotel in Cancun? Which would be the best place for a 3 day vacation?

I've been to both. They are both beautiful with different pros and cons.

Banyan tree beach was a little nicer and there was a little more to do there.

Nizuc is more luxurious with better service.

Can you give examples of actives that the resort offered? Which place would you go back to faster?

The truth is you need to check with each about current activities. I've been more than once and at different times different things are available. Some basic water spots are included and some you pay extra for.

Another point, banyan tree became more expensive recently. When they were cheaper, I would have said for sure banyan tree since it was an amazing value. Now that they are pretty much the same price, it pays to look more closely at their websites and see which appeals to you more.

Had anybody been to the Banyan tree recently (within the past few weeks) and can recommend restaurants nearby?

There are no restaurants in the immediate area. You need to either travel to playa del Carmen (25 minutes) or cancun (50 minutes)

I believe Banyan is more private than the Nizuc. When we stayed in the Nizuc, it had a small pool on our porch. In the banyan, we had a private villa with a large sized pool.

I think there’s Nizuk hotel and Nizuk resort and spa.
We stayed at the Nizuk resort and spa and absolutely loved everything about it.
Amazing service, nice grounds, rooms and everything else.
Would definitely go back there in a heartbeat.

There were some gang shootings on the beach right near the main tourist area not too long ago. Not a place I'd feel comfortable visiting right now.
