We spent 6 days at the Excellence Riviera Maya and had a great time but were not ready to go home yet. We went on line and booked three nights at the ME Cancun. Aside from beautiful and so well put together, the Hotel was perfect. Music throughout the hotel was great. Staff accommodating and gracious (always remembered our names when I could never remember theirs) and the food was above and beyond fabulous. Our first meal at Salt was one of the best I ever had. The Hotel is also open to locals and non all inclusive guests which can be a little confusing, and they really need to get the kinks out of the liquor all inclusive (many labels not included) and make all the mini bar items all inclusive (colored dots are confusing). The Rose and Blue bars are great. No balconies in the rooms, but so nice and the most comfortable bed in any hotel I have been in. All in all, the most satisfying stay we have had in Mexico. My partner and I are allready planning our next trip. Did I mention that the beach and pools were great? Fabulous

My wife and two close friends spent five days at this all inclusive resort. The service was absolutely wonderful as was the food! They took care of us from the time we arrived until we left! The beach was awesome. Clearest water I have ever seen. All the amenities!

Room Tip: Rooms are very comfortable. Suggest luxury ocean view!

My bf and I stayed at the ME Cancun from Sept 24 to Oct 1, and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, our stay was perfect. We arrived early (1pm) and our room wasn't ready, so they kept our bags for us, and gave us our bracelets so that we could go and have lunch.

The Ocean View room was well appointed and very modern with a beautiful view of the ocean and pool area. Loved that they offered free chairs on the beach, and waiters would come to take your drink order. Yes, you had to sign after each meal or drink order, but that really didn't bother us in any way. Most times we would tip $1 - $2 depending on what was ordered. At the end of the 7 days, all the tipping totalled $100 on the final bill (for drinks, and food). I consider that to be fairly reasonable. You don't have to tip, and no one pressures you either. The only pressure we got was from the hotel staff/time share people in the lobby. Very agressive.

The breakfast buffet was by far the best part of our hotel experience. So much to choose from, well presented, and tasty! The asian inspired restaurant was pretty good. I found the Beach House's food to be ok. Also pretty good was the snack shack by the pool. Great wings and fries. I was really pleasantly surprised at overall how good the food was. We found some favorite drinks, and pretty much stuck to that for the entire trip: Mudslide, Electric Lemonade, Long Island Iced Tea, and Miami Vice.

The ambiance is very zen, relax, chill. We are in our early thirties, ready to party, and were slightly disappointed that there really wasn't much of a party vibe going on. We got the impression that because this time of year is considered 'low season', the hotel is quiet. The Rose Bar closed around 1am, so we had drinks until closing time, then took the bus into the tourist/club zone to continue the night. If you're seeking a loud party vibe, try this hotel during spring break or xmas period. If you're looking to relax, Sept/Oct is a perfect time to stay here.

The hotel location is excellent. You can walk to La Isla mall, and also Plaza Mall. If you want to venture further out, the bus stops right in front of the hotel (both directions), and comes every 2 minutes. We always felt very safe. Overall there is a strong police presence in the Cancun hotel zone.

The ME is not cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. This hotel is obviously about service service service. I have never felt so taken care of at a hotel. The hotel is modern, beautifully decorated, super clean and very well maintained. I feel bad for people who didn't enjoy their experience here, because clearly it had to have been a twilight zone day or something, because I could not imagine anyone not appreciating what this hotel has to offer. I would definitely go back.

..It was my husband & I's 1st time to Cancun. This resort was our 1st choice, we looked & compared all the other hotels, read all the reviews etc..but at the end..we just want to be HERE!!! the resort/hotel pictures are amazing! Kinda scared about negative reviews that we read..but when we got here it was all gone! The check in was so fast & as well as the check out! flawless! right when you walked in, you can just feel the good vibe, the music, the Lobby was just nicely decorated. the main lobby & the hallways during the night gives u a romantic vibe with all the scented candle lights throughout the main lobby hallways. The rooms are just the way we want it. our king size bed/beddings was so comfy & the room was nicely decorated & the bathroom was just so neat & they have the best shower!. I would suggest an ocean view room w/c we got. even if were only on the 4th floor..it was an amazing view to wake up in the morning. The next time we go though, i would definitely upgrade to a room with a balcony/bali bed.( the couple that we met, had that room on the 9th floor :) it was sooo nice..with a Jacuzzi in the bathroom & a big window overlooking the view & the bali bed in the balcony is a cool hangout place day or night..also the rooms/throughout the hotel has wi-fi. w/c is cool for updating your facebook status! lol! & oh there is also spacious closets and In-room laptop-sized safe, which we always leave the rest of our money, jewellerys etc.Overall, the hotel is so trendy, hip, all the lighting in the hotel/hallways are perfect. We call it a funky/modern hotel..

FOOD/RESTAURANTS: there are 4 restaurants at the resort. Salt/the Beachhouse/ Silk and WaterGrill. We got there at the resort @ 8pm. & we had our 1st dinner at the Beachhouse. and the food was amazing & so as the drinks..the days ahead, we also had lunch at the beachhouse after chillin at the beach. The lunch menus was so yummy. The resto was a bit crowded but we didn’t wait to be seated at all. We spent most of our time by the beach, the bali beds by the beach are free..but we prefer to be closer by the water, so we usually try to be early & get the beach chairs & the awesome servers will also provide beach umbrella..the servers at the beach are sooo awesome. We were never out of margaritas & shots + ice w/ water. They were all friendly & fast! Regarding Dinner reservations, it was never a problem because it was so easy & convenient to book it..we usually do it before/after goin for a buffet breakfast @ Salt. The lady receptionist at the reservations table was always so helpful & super nice! The Silk Asian Bistro was sooo good. It was my 2nd fave. Dinner @ Salt was our fave. ( we had dinner there twice ) it was fine dining & the food was so delicious. The Water Grill Resto was good as well. It was different choices & we really love the food there too.. All theses restaurants are excellent. No complaints at all. The food presentation was just amazing, it was a perfect portion & it actually exceeded our expectations..the dessert was a bonus! There’s 5 or more small portions of different cakes & sweets on a plate.. what else would you ask for.. all the choices are there 

The infinity pool is a relaxing place there's a swim up bar/ and the bali beds all around the pool was always available. It was not crowded at the swim up bar & the bartender are always fast serving the drinks!..we got resort credits so we decided to rent a bali beds ( $40..it was $20 w/ credit by the adult pool, which is worth it! ) the adult pool is overlooking the beautiful ocean. Very relaxing and we ordered unlimited mango tango’s & kamikaze shots..it also comes with whatever food you want to order. We had such a good time & we also invited some friends that we met & we just chilled by the pool & on our bali beds. It was a perfect day! Our server Miguel, was so awesome, so friendly and hey he was even our photographer.. thanks for the excellent service Miguel!

The Rose Bar & Bali beds by the Rose Bar is our usual hangout/meeting place with friends we met after dinner. They played good music. & the servers at the bar was always accommodating. We never ran out of drinks. We regret that we missed Thursday nights which they have 80’s night & also Saturday party during the day at the Beach Club. ( we were there Sat night & left thurs afternoon ) . So next time, we know.
The All Inclusive Package is all worth every penny. With an excellent service, good food & super friendly staff, all you need to do is to give tips. Would suggest bringing US money/cash for tips, $1 or $2 or $3 for the servers everytime you asked for anything & for breakfast, lunch, dinner maybe $5-$10. The signing part is not even a hassle at all. My husband likes signing receipts..so thats all he’s done..lol. all u need to sign at the end of any orders/transactions is your room# & name.. & don’t forget to add your tips..& that’s it.
This resort is so close to Coco Bongo, by bus it was less than 5 mins. Do not leave Cancun without going to this place  or you will missed out big time. We had a BLAST!! & yes we also did the parasailing for $50 each + add or pay for the pictures $40 If you think that the view from the hotel window was breathtaking.. just wait if you see it 350 feet higher.. WOW! we were speechless. Cancun is beautiful. a real paradise. and dont forget to see the "baby turtles" at night..when ur walking by the beach..u will see a group of people/volunteers lookin' over these cute baby turtles & letting them go into the ocean :)

We are so happy that we picked ME CANCUN for our 1st vacay in Mexico!!! it was a great experience, exceeded all our expectations from day 1. We have nothing negative to say about this resort. We had such a good time. We appreciate all the servers at all the restaurants, by the beach, adult pool, rose bar, & also the awesome housekeeping that made our stay at this resort a memorable, most relaxing and unforgettable one. This is beyond what we have expected, & we have already told all our family & friends to book nowhere else but here..in fact we were there just less than a month ago & we are still experiencing a post-cancun syndrome.. lol.

We can’t wait to go back to our “ happy place”...we are even thinking of exploring any Melia Resorts like in Playa del Carmen & or other destination. As long as it is Melia Hotels because it is proven to satisfy us.

ME CANCUN is the place to be. If you don’t want to be disappointed, then you know where to stay..it’s gotta be..ME :) don't think twice, just book it! satisfaction guaranteed :)

ME Cancun (Sept. 23 - Sept. 30, 2011)

PROS:
- very modern and chic young adult crowd, perfect for young adult couples.
-excellent service, all staff very friendly and helpful.
-food, excellent and all inclusive. 4 restaurants that are diverse and upscale,breakfast buffet, Grill by pool area, 24 hour room service. Never had a problem getting food at anytime of the day. ALL Food, ALL Restaurants, are all ALL-INCLUSIVE!!!
-walking distance from mall (La Isla Mall) and bus stop.
-2 pools (adult only, and swim up bar pool) adult pool plays house music with Djs on Saturday's and Sunday.
-Bali beds; swim up bar pool and beach front have plenty of bali beds which are free However, The adults only pool charges for all their beds ($40 a day, I think)
- VERY clean through out hotel.
- entire hotel (inside and out) transforms at night in romance, dark, candlelit, Soothing music
- attire is casual chic
- weather in September Beautiful, sunny and 90 everyday. Rained one day for 40 Minutes, Then the sun came out and pool time for the rest of the day
- Beach Front very clean, white sand, more than enough chairs and bali beds, waiters, what more can you ask for.
- Rooms are beautiful and very clean. LOVE the rainfall shower!

CONS
- elevators are very slow, when you want to go down they go up? Lol


Ps. For tipping I suggest leaving a credit card open under your room at check
in. Tips are excepted by cash but it's hard to hold cash when at pool or beach.
Waitstaff does not expect tips but all deserve one. wish they would have told us to leave a
credit card at the time of check in
