We have just returned from a 10 day stay at The Vine, and we can say nothing but absolutely wonderful things about this resort. From the food to the scenry, everything was absolutely fantastic.
Food - The food choices were quite extensive and everything we ate was absolutely delicious. There are great restauran choices in the resort and you can find something for anyones tastes there. The best restaurant in our opinion was Nebbiolo ( Italian). The food was absolutely fantastic, and although the wait times for your order were long we didnt mind as we could see the servers were doing their best to have things come out faster. The steak at Nebbiolo is fantastic, comparable to a Canadian or American steakhouse. All of the other restaurants were great too. Breakfast buffet at Market Cafe was great and had a wide selection. The french toast was amazing as well as the omelette bar ( recommendation: if you want a special cheese n the omelette that is from the cheese buffet, simply bring it to the omelette bar and they will put it in your omelette instead of the normal cheddar).
Rooms - Rooms were spotless, modern and very nice. We enjoyed the balcony with a view of the ocean ( facing Hard Rock Hotel). The only downside was that the doors of other rooms slamming was quite loud but we didnt notice it after the first hour being in our room.
Other - The pool area is beautiful and you have a selection of 3 pools to choose from. The activity pool fills up very fast. The bar service at the pool was great - we repeatedly sat in the same area as we loved our server Blanca. The entertainment team made the pool environment really fun. Balam, Bethenny, and Victor did a great job at making it a fun environment. They were always helpful and were so friendly. The only thing we would have liked is more music by the pool however there was usually great music in the afternoon.
Nightlife - Although this is outside of the resort I felt as though we should review this. Each night a member or two of the entertainment team takes you out to a different club in Cancun. The first club we went to was The City - although this is a favorite with many of the locals we did not enjoy it as it was extremely large and busy. As a woman, I did not feel as safe as I would have liked there. The Sweet Club was extremely fun, and was nice as they had seats at your bottle service table when you wanted to sit. We met another couple and a friend during our stay and for our last night we decided we wanted to go to Mandala. The entertainment team was supposed to take us to Cabana Beach Club however we simply asked if Mandala was an option and they went out of their way to accomodate.
We would recommend this resort over and over and would stay again. If you are looking for a party resort this isnt for you, however it is worth it to book at this hotel. Absolutely amazing stay beginning to end.
