Upon becoming an all-inclusive resort, the Gran Melia Cancun will change its name to the Paradisus Cancun; both brands are owned by Melia Hotels International.
The transformation will be completed by Nov. 15.
The 678-suite resort remains open during the changeover; sections of the property are being cordoned off during the renovation.
Most of the upgrades are in the public spaces of the resort, according to a spokesperson.
Two Paradisus resorts opened in Playa del Carmen last November, and the brand will make its debut in Costa Rica in 2013. Also, there are two Paradisus resorts in the Dominican Republic. Follow Gay Nagle Myers on Twitter @gnmtravelweekly.
