Cancun, Mexico (May , 2008) – The JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa has been named the top resort worldwide in the annual Expedia Insiders’ Select list of the world’s best hotels. Marking its second year, the list is comprised of nearly 80,000 properties that are featured on Expedia, which is the world’s leading online travel provider. The results are derived using a very precise formula to accurately measure hotel successes in order to truly declare the best.

“The JW Marriott Cancun prides itself on delivering the best service to all of our guests. To be recognized so highly by our customers means a great deal,” says Christopher Calabrese, General Manager of the JW Marriott Cancun Resort and Spa. “The Expedia distinction and the AAA Five-Diamond Award have been two great highlights in an already productive year for the property.”

Expedia considers the reviews of thousands of Traveler Opinions. In order to be considered, hotels must have consistently placed high on readers’ review lists for their excellence in service, experience and value. Each hotel is assigned a rating, which is determined by comparing same-star rated properties in the same geographical regions. The insight of local Expedia employees in destinations around the world is additionally considered.

The CasaMagna Marriott Cancun was also noted for its service and excellence. Both resorts have the distinction of claiming the top two spots for Cancun on the Expedia Insiders’ Select list.
