A gloriously-upscale, new-looking supermarket in the heart of the Cancun tourist zone.
Downstairs is a pretty standard Chedraui, but some things seem missing...until you get upstairs. The good stuff is up there. There's an ELABORATE pastry section, a large food court with unexpected offerings like...conveyor-belt sushi, a top-shelf liquor selection, and even a vegan/health-food section.
The downsides for which I knock off a star:
* It's more expensive than Chedraui in the city proper
* The dedicated gated parking isn't free, and if you lose your ticket they'll charge a substantial fee rather than going with the time on your receipt like most places would.
* The tequila/mezcal selection is more limited than the superstores in the city proper, and they have sales staff whose job is to upsell those liquors, which is annoying when you're trying to browse.
Overall-- it's a nice spot to pick up supplies & drinks for much cheaper, do some grocery shopping, or have a light meal.
If you're not used to traveling abroad, this is a nice transition to doing something "off resort", and saves a ton of money versus hotel stores. Go forth and explore!More
Dumb-me forgot to wear sun screen and because of light travel could not bring with me various toiletries (you know where this is going). When I went to the Hotel store, prices were astronomical so I went to this supermarket to buy what I needed:...Vinegar for muy sunburn, toothpaste and others.
Don't forget to visit the "travel section" where you can find 100 ml bottles or travel toiletries at a great price.More
So, we went to WalMart on our first day in Cancun. It was a mistake. Chedraui was much closer, took our temperatures, and let us all in instead of making my children wait outside with my husband. The store is fantastic and price wise, was...just as reasonable as, if not more so than, WalMart. We LOVED the bakery and all of the produce we purchased there was fantastic. There is a great liquor and wine selection, a walk-in humidor, sushi and salad bar, ceviche bar, pizza and torta stations and coffee shop. There is a wonderful deli, and large meat and fish selection. We were even able to pick up tee shirts for $3-6 USD. We went shopping here five times during our 2 week stay. The only things that differ from this place and a select grocer in the US is that the milk is not sold in gallons, but pints, and the eggs are not refrigerated. They have everything you need.
If you are bothered by people trying to sell you things, just cross the street past the taxi pick up and no one will ask you to buy anything. Inside, there are people who want to look at your receipt to offer you discounts on tours. You can either shut them down or just keep walking if you aren't interested. There are quite a few good restaurants around too. Either bus route will take you here from anywhere in the hotel zone. My family highly suggests that you come here for any grocery needs.More
So you are bombarded as you go in the store with tour/time share guys on the ground floor...and then at the top of the escalator more are waiting. But the best is when you leave. A guy approaches and asks to see your bill. I...assumed he was store security. Needless to say a bit upsetting. But No.....as you get near the tour desk he tells you that you are eligible for “a great tour deal”. And then saying no doesn't work...he follows you pestering you until you are onto the escalator going down. What a horrible scam by a reputable store in Cancun. Obviously they are getting a cut on tour sales. We no longer shop here and hope others don't as well....More
we've been shopping here daily. today we stopped in and as we were shopping, my 1 year old knocked over a bottle of wine which broke. i went to grab an employee to tell her. i walked her to the bottle and showed her. she...said no problem. we noticed security following us around the place. no one said a word. as we were checking out and about to literally swipe our card, security comes with the broken bottle (keep in mind at least 40-60 minutes after we reported it) and makes a scene about paying for the bottle. the bottle cost 288 pesos (roughly $15 USD). i dont mind paying for it but its how they approached me about it that was sneaky. i should have paid for the bottle and not bought the rest of the groceries and taken my @$$ to walmart. the sad part is we've spent several hundred dollars at this place in the last week of being here. i asked for a manager, they wouldnt get one. they act like they dont know english but sure as hell know how to say you have to pay for something. oh and another thing, their pizza at the food court sux. we ordered both pepperoni and margarita ... cheese taste fake and the pepperoni seems like its imitation meat.More
This is just a little past Congo Bongo on the left side It has two floors. It has everything a regular supermarket has plus more. It has a bakery, restaurant where you can sit over looking the lagoon, liquor store. It has cloths, pool floats....Everything is reasonably priced. Love stopping here every time we visit Cancun.More

I’m so sorry for the delayed response. You can go to the store and just let them know you need it delivered before you start shopping. They will let you know when they can deliver your groceries. It’s was just a few dollars... More
