We spent 2 weeks in europe before arriving in cancun. The contrast is jarring. Cancun hotel is roomy, well appointed, clean. The service is second to none. Mexicans are so hospitable and happy to be of service (unlike europeans). You will get excellent value for your dollar, but there are some annoying issues to contend with. First, the hotel(s) smells of dampness, the drinking water, even the filtered variety, smells and tastes really really bad. The coffee is hard to drink because of the taste of water.
Weatherwise and locationwise, this is heaven, of course. The azul water is clean, warm, and inviting. The hotel activities are plenty and fun. The weather is perfectly hot and humid.
