My husband and I (very late 30's) stayed @ GCPS
for our 10th anniversary July 8-15. I like everybody else poured over every review as this trip was very important to us and LONG overdue!!
I am a clean freak, this place was spotless, spotlless, spotless.This is a truly beautiful resort. The marble floors, sculptures, and design are magnificent. Very rich and impressive. The staff is beyond wonderful and the service is better than even the best we've had in Boston & NYC by a long shot. Shang-ri-la would cost $250 in NYC EXCEPTIONAL FOOD HERE!!! We had the upgrade 6th floor(pretty quiet) except for people letting wind slam their doors shut.
In room dinner is an incredible experience. (Food from Shang-ri-la served) Overlooking the most stunning beach and ocean you will ever lay eyes on I SWEAR. The luncheon boat cruise(included in upgrade was so fun-again food was excellent) I actually belted out AC\DC in a name that tune game in front of 100+ people! It was hilarious. People truly let their hair down here and roll with it. We met dozens of people from all over the world-all of them were #1 fun!!! It can get wild at the Tiki Bar(we were honorary bartenders) body shots, bar top dancers, and the tequila flows!! Some nights tamer than others. Some nights people did go to the clubs. Ask for the very "special" apron with the giant(I do mean giant) surprise one of the bartenders wears. We laughed till we cried. I have a roll of film I am scared to get developed!! I have never had more fun in my life, never had food any better or relaxed so good. Shopping best at Kukulcan Plaza(A.C. MALL!!!Good prices) The open air flea markets are scary. American Change hard to get!! Take a ton of singles*Tip well*Don't forget the cooks behind the counters. They work their ----- off!! The people we met were truly amazing and interesting. There are not enough words to praise the staff that never sleeps. (They squeegy your room windows) We laid at the beach so we could care less about the pool but it is only 4ft deep and pretty cloudy. Cancun is topless optional beach so dont go and dont ----- if you dont like it. What impressed me was people of all shapes and sizes wearing whatever or not wearing whatever and having a good time. Nobody judges-nobody cares-it's your vacaction so do as you please!!! People went topless (myself included) who have never done anthing like that before. Your attitude will lighten up. You will be waited on hand and foot-suck it up and enjoy it!! Swore I wouldn't be long winded but I actually shed a tear when we left. CANNOT wait to return. Beds not that bad. Have a drink you wont notice.P.S. All high end liquor inside Beer Garden-Tiki Bar cheap stuff. You can get drinks anywhere and go outside. Sit along side wall outside kitchen in buffet. Their are a.c. vents-helps a little. It was brutal hot-no question about it. Tip your servers the 1st day, your table will be ready and they give you EXTRA special treatment. I spent three months scouring every island and resort on earth before booking this. It was worth it. Hi to all our new friends from Bob & Christy* This is the only all adults resort to stay in!!!!
