This holiday was amazing...
Firstly greeted with a glass of champagne and a cold towel to wipe away the sweat of a 10 hour journey.
Taken to the room by a golf caddy while your bags are taken for you. The room was lovely, a massive comfortable bed, a big jacuzzi, cold drinks, coffee machine and a lovely shower. The room was in the Tulum block with faces the sea, a lovely view in the morning as the sun is rising.
The quiet pool was very nice, we never ventured to the activity pool as it was a little loud for us, we wanted pure relaxation and we got that at the quiet pool. The amazing bar lady who brought us drinks and lovely cocktails unexpected and even lunch-she was fantastic!
The beach was so pretty, yeah it has sandbanks but its purely to protect the beach and unless you get a bed near the spa area you can't really see them and its too nice to even be bothered by them. There were ladies that served you drinks all day too on the beach and lunch served there was good, with BBQ's, paella and baked potatoes.
The bar staff were amazing, a huge range of cocktails and such a wide rage of nice drinks to have, even healthy cocktails and shakes.
The main part to our holiday being so amazing was sue to how good the food was. I mean yeah the Mexican wasn't as great as we had hoped for being a lover for hot food however I think people are used to the taste of commerical mexican food that we buy from supermarkets-however it was still nice.
Our favourite was Mia Casa, it was amazing. Never packed out which always surprised us as it was the best place to eat. The waiters make you feel special and just simply great! Klay talay was lovely, gets very busy and Vida grill was very nice. All was lovely and I couldn't wait till my dinner each night.
Never had to book or wait for anywhere, everyone was really polite.
The evening had good shows and a dj played music afterwards, but were tired from jetlag so opted for a few drinks and watched a film in bed :)
The trips we went on were great! Booked through our holiday operator though.
A few tips:
Avoid the spa staff unless you want treatments, I found one the guys a little in your face and I noticed he bugged all the new looking people.
You can have champagne at breakfast, lunch and dinner-just ask its free. (We thought it was extra so avoided it at first)
Avoid the wine list unless wanted, its so expensive but if you ask for glasses of house wine you can get it all night
You can get bitten quite a bit due to the area, so take strong insect spray.
All the forecast I read before I went and even shown on TV while away mentioned storms, rain etc however it rained once in the afternoon while we were there and was nice and hot the rest of the time.
The hotel was amazing, truely wonderful- would definately come back!
Please don't listen to the bad reviews- you really have to be a big moaner and grump to moan about anything at this hotel it was fantastic!
Try the cheese risotto at vida grill -yum :)
