Last week I had the privilege of traveling to Cancun, Mexico.
And it was truly amazing.
I stayed at an “unlimited-luxury” resort meaning that everything is included with your stay – food, drinks, activities and more! It was right on the Caribbean Sea and nothing beats the locale or the view.
My room was nothing short of amazing. Clean, comfortable and with a killer view.
Everything in the mini-bar was included and they refilled it each morning (sometimes it’s the simple things…).
I didn’t actually find time to use the Spa but we did get a tour of it. It was beautiful and serene.
Oh the food.
The food and drinks were nothing short of fantastic. First of all, it’s all included, any time of day. Restaurants, poolside, room service, you can have it all! And I did. But I lost half a pound so I guess I didn’t overdo it.
And of course, there were margaritas. As many as you can or want to drink.
The resort itself has quite a few different things to keep you busy. Each day in your room you receive an outline of the next days events and activities. The resort I stayed at is family-friendly and has activities for all ages.
For the adults there are fitness classes, poker tournaments, soccer, volleyball, music, tequila tastings and so much more! And with 9 different restaurants and 6 bars, great food & drink is at your beck and call at all times.
My experience in Cancun really was unforgettable and I would definitely consider bringing my family back. However, I have 2 reservations that are probably easily remedied, the first is that my room, while gorgeous and great for a couple was probably not appropriate for all families. The bathroom area was open to the rest of the room and the partially frosted glass and non-latching doors on the shower & toilet room allow for little privacy. The other issue is that weddings are a very common occurrence at the resort and the outdoor receptions have loud music playing until late in the evening (11 pm or so). Depending upon the location of your room, children might be kept awake. Mine would have been kept awake in the room I stayed in.
But overall, it was a very positive experience, and without question I would not hesitate to return at least with my husband for a romantic trip. The room was very clean, the staff was very courteous and the food, drinks and everything I experienced was top-notch. I felt safe and pampered in paradise!
