A February 2005 trip
to Cancun by kona
Quote: Cancun is great for those who love all-inclusive resorts and beaches. If you like adventure and want more to do than lay out on the beach, you need to leave this touristy destination.
The grounds are very pretty here with a great gazebo that overlooks the Caribbean. The place is huge, and the rooms are all a good size and you get a bar in you room with unlimited alcohol and water. The views from every room were outstanding.
This resort is pretty far down on the "strip" of Isla Cancun on the corner edge that juts out, like a number 7.

Attraction | "Chichen-Itza"
You can book this as a tour through your hotel and not have to worry about driving there yourself. On the way back from the ruins you stop at a natural "well" with warm, fresh water feeding into it, and you can swim there if you like.
The day is long and usually quite hot, so bring the sunscreen and water.

Her wedding was to be on the beach oh a Friday afternoon, but an hour before the wedding, a storm rolled in and the ceremony had to take place in the resort's outdoor covered patio. The ceremony was nice, but the resort didn't seem at all prepared for the scenario of rain and was a bit unorganized trying to set up on the patio.
After the ceremony, pictures were taken on the grounds, and eventually everyone ended up in the swim-up bar in their wedding attire... and it made for a great pic to end the afternoon before dinner.
The resort itself is okay, but my husband and I did venture out and do other things, and there are plenty of things to do if you want more than hanging around the pool.
Do plan on reserving room on a tour when you first get to Cancun, because a lot of the tours fill up and certain days of the week they don't do tours.
