My wife and I stayed at The Vine for 4 nights on Jan. 19 to 24. We thought the place was one of the nicest resorts we have ever stayed at. We have traveled the world and have also stayed at The Royal and Palace Playa del Carmen. Our Preferred Club Oceanfront Honeymoon Suite on the 23rd floor was spectacular with the largest wrap around balcony I have ever seen. Well worth the extra money.
Everything is very new and clean. Service was excellent. We really liked not having to have a reservation to eat and never had to wait. At The Royal, our time was all ruined by a "lost" reservation.
We went to the 12th floor Preferred Club everyday after time at the beach and pools. It was a very nice change of pace and the staff really makes you feel pampered. Make sure you order a Kobe beef hamburger at the Preferred Club grill. You also get top shelf liquor at the Preferred Club like Don Julio margaritas.
Another awesome thing is that all the pools are heated. At The Royal, no one used the pools in the afternoon because they were too chilly.
Bethany on the entertainment staff was incredible. She took groups every night to dance clubs in Cancun. We went to Coco Bongos and Dady'O. She stayed until 4 am to make sure everyone was safe and having fun.
Just a couple of things could still use improving. I really wish they would let you have bottles of wine to take to your room. Having to keep going down to the lobby to get a drink gets old. The coupons they give you are worthless because they can only be used on full price items. They have sales that are cheaper. Finally, the night time entertainment at the needs improvement. With the exception of the circus, it was not very good. Particularly, the magician (actually a playing card act) was the worst thing I have ever endured.
We can't wait to go back and hope prices will stay competitive.
