@futuremrsrcb I do have a few questions, I don’t know how to send personal messages do I’ll ask you here. 

Did the resort offer daily activities? 

How are the dinning options? 

Did you ever go off the resort, if so, how easy was it to get around? 

 

Thank you in advance!!!

henderson2bee:  I don’t even know where to start haha the place is pretty amazing. 

Ill atart with daily activities. Down by the main pool there is a board with all the activities for the week. They offer something for everyone. We did salsa lessons which was lots of fun, the bike tour takes you out of the resort and you get to see some cool birds and an airial view of the compound, we also did tennis lessons which had everyone from people like us who have never played who people who came prepared with their own equipment but they made it fun for everyone. They also have non motorized water sport equipment. We went paddle boarding and kayaking. everything ive mentioned is free of charge. At night the shows are pretty good. For the Michael Jackson and the Beyoncé one the place fills up quickly. Late night they play Muir by the martini bar, and the sports bar becomes a disco. Being you’re going in September they will be playing all the big football games at the sports bar. On rainy afternoons there are pool tables up by the coffee shop (a hidden gem most people don’t know about) and giant chess boards in the lobby. 

Okay moving on to food! Breakfast and lunch was a hit for us, dinner not so much. We did room service most mornings for breakfast. Order the night before for more timely arrival. The French toast is out of this world! I tell people about it all the time. we did the buffet once and it was okay. If your an excellence club room I highly recommend going to their lounge for breakfast! They have something different every day. It’s much smaller than the bug buffet but I found the quality much better. They also make great lattes and a cappuccinos in there. Lunch definefly check what they are serving on the beach! Taco day is a must! Authentic street tacos to die for! We also did the buffet which is amazing at lunch. they cook up fresh seafood right in front of you. Now dinner was out problem. We didn’t loke anything but the grill. And they take a very long time to get you food. Make sure you bring your own bug spray! Anywhere outside at night the bugs are vicious! They have great empanadas and steaks there tho. The Mexican rest is not good at all. Friday night is Mexican night and they bring in locals to make real Mexican food. It’s amazing! We are and are and ate that night. Most nights we just did room service. The caprese is good so are their burger and club sandwiches. 

Some hidden gems the coffee shop does crepes and gelato. Also has great coffee, paninie, and pastries. And go to the smoothie bar! It’s iver by the lazy river. It’s our favorite place!

we left the resort once but we went on an excursion with USA Transfers. I wouldn’t recommend going into Cancun on your own. 

Some tips! Upgrade to excellence club if you can. They have a private beach with much better service and cool beds! Also they always have food and better coffee and alcohol in their lounge. If you ever want to swap out alcohol in your room or need anything leave a sticky note for your maid and it will get fixed ASAP. 

 

Its to a wonderful resort you will love it!

I’m so glad I found this thread- This resort in on the top of our list.  We can’t decide if we should splurge for the 2 story terrace with the ocean view or save 1000 and just do an ocen view suite.
