My cousin and i did a guys trip down to Rui Emerald Bay in November and it was awesome!!! we arrived to the resort with our whole plane going to the same resort and when we got there they had all our stuff ready and there was very little wait!!! the elevator is about the only downfall of the trip other than a incident that happened off the resort to us. Memo the bartender was my brother from another mother, make sure to visit him in the lobby bar and tip him good! the swim up bar was the hangout of the day for us and the bartenders there were great! while we were there it was a holiday in mexico so there was a lot of locals at the resort which at times was frustrating but it was very neat to hang out with them when you weren't trying to get food. We had a incident in town one night and we didnt know you cant drink out of a cab but you can in a cab so please remember that or you could end up going with the police or what we did was pay them off hahaha...learnt our lesson that's for sure. we tipped every day for our room and it looked awesome!!! if your looking for a AWESOME massage dont get it at the resort and instead leave the resort head to the left about 5 mins down the road and theres a strip mall with a amazing coffee shop, massage parlor and amazing seafood restaurant around the corner! Overall our trip was awesome. We made some great friends and have a lot of fun along the way.
TOTALLY RECOMMEND THE RUI EMERALD BAY!!!!
