looking at possibly staying at the Wyndham in March 2014. A couple of questions would help to make a final decision.

1. Do guests at the hotel have access to the marina so they can fish from the docks?

2. Can you snorkel in the lagoon at the hotel?

3. Is selecting a suite with the spa services included worth the extra cost?

4. Are there excursions you can take from the resort or do you have to go across the bay to do them?

5. is there bar service at the pool on the roof?

From what we saw, anyone who can grab a patch of water, can fish from wherever. There isn't much in the marina area to catch, (while shore fishing) but you just never know!

You can snorkel pretty much anywhere; from what I've heard, there isn't a whole bunch to see in the lagoon, but that doesn't mean it's not worth doing!

The spa there has a pretty good reputation, but whether it's worth it or not is entirely up to you. Most spa services at the larger hotels in Mexico cost about the same as similar services in Canada; you'd only find less expensive services if you were to go off the resort, so if you'd pay the same amount for a room in Canada, then it's worth it. If you'd feel like it's overpriced, then consider going a la carte for the spa services. :)

There IS a road to Isla Navidad, and any tour you take is likely to include transportation or pickup right form your hotel, but whether they'll pick you up at the hotel, or if they'll send someone to help your tour group boat across the bay, I'm not sure - either way, I don't think you'll be left to your own devices to figure it all out for yourself. :)

If it does involve a boat ride, then it's a super short boat ride (like, four minutes or less) and when you get across, you're right in a really nice little section of shops and restaurants.

There'll be bar service at all of the pools, generally between 11:00am and 4:00 or 5:00pm

Thank you so much for the quick response. The hotel looks great and both my wife and I am looking for somewhere quiet and laid back. An excursion or two would be great but a little fishing and snoreling would keep me smiling. We would be looking a the all inclusive option and I hear the food is quite good at the ala cartes.

Thanks again.
