Travel is the trip to reach the journey,” reads one freshly painted wall of the Panama Jack Resorts Cancun. Similar bits of wisdom can be seen throughout the 458-room property, attributed to the resort’s namesake, the Miami-based maker of sunscreen and other beach-lifestyle products.

For the past year and a half or so, the all-inclusive resort has been on a journey of sorts itself, ever since Playa Hotels and Resorts announced plans to renovate two of its properties and relaunch them under its new Panama Jack Resorts brand.

At the former Gran Caribe Real, the transformation is nearly complete. At sister property Panama Jack Resorts Playa del Carmen (formerly the Gran Porto), the switch is even further along, according to Playa representatives. Last month I got a look at the Cancun property during a hosted stay for travel media.

The resort is about a half-hour from Cancun’s airport and is located next to Playa sister property the Hyatt Zilara Cancun along the hotel zone.

As I arrived, midday festivities were well underway in the main pool area, with a poolside DJ overseeing dance lessons, birthday wishes and more. At night, the airy Jack’s Landing bar takes over with live music (during one early evening, the cover band played Motown hits and other circa-’60s selections).
