We stayed at the Mexicana 22.11.13-06.12.13 All Inclusive.
The Hotel : Fantastic atmosphere and very clean, the rooms are clean and spacious and cleaned every day. 2 pools...one large pool and one smaller heated pool both cleaned each night ready for the next day. The pool man was very good in laying our towls out for us each day in our favorate spot. (A tip work wonders)
The Food: All inclusive buffet style service was lovely.
Breakfast was a huge choice of everything from freshly made eggs/omlettes to tasty fresh breads and pastrys. Coffee & tea and juice on tap.
Lunch again a huge selection of food including pizza, burgers, chips, salads, fresh bread & drinks.
Dinner was fantastic with a bbq every night with something different each night from chicken to fish to steak & kebabs. The soup was amazing each night! Big thank you to the chefs who took time to make sure you enjoyed your meals.
The staff: The highlight of the hotel!! Mohammed at The Amigos bar was so friendly and very quick to top up our drinks as they got low. He was always ready with a big smile and a joke! He also carried our drinks for us to where we sat during the day by the pool. A lovely man who works very hard for a terrible wage. We love you Mohammed you were great.
"Talktalk" the waiter made every meal a pleasure to attend!! With his funny ways and great sense of humor he made us feel like part of the mexicana family! He didnt even mind when we threw him in the pool on the last night of our stay!! A great asset to the hotel!!
All the staff were attentive and friendly and treated us very well. Thank you guys.
Bill at the spa & his amazing team were fantastic....a huge must is to try the pamper sessions with them, we have never felt so relaxed in all our lives.
The reception staff were fantastic at informing us of where the best places to go where and helping me with getting online with the hotel wifi!
Trips: The boat trip was FANTASTIC and a chance to see the beautiful Rea Sea and the coral reefs. My partner & daughter did the scuba diving and loved every second of it, the instructor was fantastic with my daughter who was a bit nervous at first but soon proved to be a natural!! The photographer on board was brilliant and for a great price we got a disc with over 50 amazing photos of our family on the boat. The food served at lunch was delicious and plenty of it to go round.
A few tips: The staff at the hotel are living away from their familys and working up to 16 hours each day for around £45 a month so tipping is a huge winner....and they truely deserve it.
Any problems see the reception guys and they will do their best to solve the problem.
There is a kfc and a mcdonalds just down the road that deliver to the hotel! The mcdonalds beats ours over here hands down!! The burgers are HUGE!! We also treated one of the staff one evening to a maccys and you could see the delight in his face and for such a small gesture made us feel very good.
Stay away from the purfume shop.....these guys bug you everytime you walk past and invite you in....beware people.....the hotel had to have words with them a few times.
Must visit the little shop out of the hotel and on the right....nice bits and bobs to take home & remember to haggle!!
I would also avoid the english bar down the road on the right....the cocktails were dodgy and never what you asked for & the guys were like flys round s**t with my pretty 13 year old daughter....despite her dad telling them to leave her alone they persisted saying 13 was a good age for them....so we left before it became more trouble.
Overall an amazing holiday and we met some fantastic people staying at the hotel including lots of regulars :) We will be back again and again.
THANK YOU EVERYONE AT MEXICANA WE LOVE YOU ALL XX Vicki & Nik & Jessica XX
