TUCANCUN BEACH RESORT: TUCANCUN BEACH RESORT --- NIGHTLY ENTERTAINMENT

Every night there was entertainment. Tuesdays were usually "Mexicano Night" with a Mexican dinner show. There was also "Casino Night" where the theatre hall was turned into a mini casino using play money. I had a great time playing the roulette table. One night was the "Sexy Man (Lady) Contest and of course Hans was picked to participate. He did such a fantastic job and was so funny that tears were rolling down my cheek, I was laughing so hard. He may not have won but to me he's the best.

Almost everywhere: Time Shares!

hello,

One thing you should know is all resorts...ok, almost all sell time-shares...even the more expensive resorts and its high pressure. Do not even waste your time going...they will use up at least half of one day of your time.... and the time-share prices are outrageous!!!!!!!

And they will promise you things in return to listen to thier sells pitch, again, do not get involved, if you are not interested, say so and walk away...they can be very aggressive.

Carrousel Cancun: Nice Hotel, Value for Money

We booked to go to this hotel on Tv travel shop, it was a very colourful hotel, all painted yellow & blue but looked great. We had a warm welcomming from the staff & went straight to our room to unpack. The rooms are very clean although they are quite basic, the rooms are very large & consist of two huge double beds.

The food at the hotel was lovely, it was all inclusive so you could help yourself to anything you wanted at anytime, i especially liked the local dishes & enjoyed the fresh fruit & ice cream. I also loved the home made cocktails made by the bar staff. The service at the hotel was great too, always helpful & happy to serve.

The pool at this hotel was quite small for such a large hotel but i wasnt complaining as it was a beachfront hotel anyway, so i just went for a dip in the sea to cooldown after a long sunbathe.
There were lots of free watersports to choose from, i often enjoyed going out to sea in a boat. And make sure you take some banana with you as you can jump in the sea and feed all the tropical fishes with it.... what a great experience. I had a great time at this hotel.

Aventura Spa Palace All-Inclusive: Beee-uuuu-tiii-ful!

I would highly recommend the Adventura Spa Palace. It is gorgeous, comfortable, the food is excellent. The sea is lovely and the pools are so nice. They have yoga classes and aerobic classes for those people who just cant leave excersize behind them (like me!) We never got to do the rock climbing wall, but it looks really fun. Do take time to take some of the tours though to get a real taste of what Mexico is really like.

They will invite you to a 'celebration' and a breakfast.. but dont go, unless you really want to purchase a time share. If you do go you will end up wasting a whole half day of your vacation fending off time-share offers. That's not how I want to spend my vacation!

Hacienda del Sol - A Royal Resort: Hacienda del Sol -An Interval International resort

NOTE: I did not stay here but simply checked the property for friends who bought an interval ownership just prior to Hurricane Wilma striking the Cancun area in 2005. The resort just opened and while the majority of the infrastructure is in place, certain information is not available including their own website and contact information.

I did take a 2 hour tour of the entire property, including having breakfast in the restaurant, and I was able to see the accomodations of the rooms available.

The property is unfinished but there are dozens of workers present completing the next phase of the 200+ room resort. Currently 55 rooms are completed. There was no evidence I saw of any residual hurricane damage.

The resort was very clean, new and efficient and everything I saw would prompt me to come back to stay here or to recommend it to others.

The resort is meant to be a destination resort with everything you could need being available on site. There are plans for an attached golf course.

The infinity pool was the highlight of the property and it included a swim-up bar & restaurant. Any of the upper floors will have great views of the sea.

The resort rooms can be rented weekly, depending on time of year, for approximately $1,400-2,200 U.S.

Bedroom

Two double beds, an Air Conditioner and a ceiling fan as well as a TV (not much for useful channels though - but who cares?). The traffic outside the window (overlooking Kukulkan Avenue and the Lagoon) was very noisey but was OK as long as the window was closed and the A/C was running!

Aventura Spa Palace All-Inclusive: THE spot for couples/Honeymooners/privacy!

I highly, totally, whole-heartedly recommend Aventura Spa Palace ("ASP") to ANY couple who wants to get away from "the everyday" and above all, to anyone considering this spot for a honeymoon.

We chose ASP for so many reasons: the massive pool; huge PERFECT lagoon; 7 restaurants; many many many bars; excellent rooms!;, ADULTS ONLY; and well, it was recommended by our travel agent as a great Honeymooners getaway.

Upon check in, you are given champagne and flowers. Taken to your room right away (we were, anyway). There is a shuttle that takes guests from the North Lobby to the South Lobby, but walking the beautifully maintained grounds of ASP was a great way to see all the glory of Cancun (flowers, landscaping, iguanas, butterflies, etc.) and work off all that FOOD that we ate!!!

The most outstanding characteristics of ASP are: the lagoon, the pool, and the restaurants.

The Lagoon: some people just don't read reviews or do any research before going to ASP. It is pretty freaking obvious to see that ASP does NOT have a beach. They have a rocky wall built up and a man-made lagoon; which is utter HEAVEN. It is massive; runs the entire length of ASP. There are fishies a-plenty in the lagoon; it is under 5 feet deep in most spots; you can snorkel, kayak, swim, or just simply float on your back and watch the birds & clouds swirl by. It is that huge, that you can float drunkenly for hours without anyone bumping into you. It was SO heavenly, we didn't even try out the pool, OR miss having a beach!

The Pool: We didn't use the pool, mainly because we were so enthralled with the lagoon. They had the typical Cancun-style tequila volleyball in the pool, night shows, and the usual fun. Each pool area has swim up bars, snack bars, and waitresses/waiters ready to bring you your next drink. We never had to wait and felt like we were treated like royalty.

The Restaurants: How someone can complain about ASP's restaurant is beyond me! They have SEVEN to choose from, along with a smattering of specialty bars: a Mediterranean restaurant, an Oriental, a California-Light theme restaurant, an Italian place, a 'healthy snack' spot that makes fresh fruit smoothies, many lobby bars, a Steakhouse, an International buffet style restaurant, a Thai Lounge which has beds & martinis (great mix), and a few other smaller bars which specialize in tapas & drinks!

XpuHa Palace (all-inclusive resort): Tropical huts in an Ecopark... great pool & view!

I did NOT stay here, but we visited 2 times, as part of the Palace Resorts "stay at one, visit all of them" package.

From what I saw: the hotel "rooms" are actually individual huts (air conditioned!), with private balconies; each had it's own hammock. VERY tropical and VERY secluded; this is the kind of place you'd go for a honeymoon -- however there were alot of kids around so it seemed kid-friendly.

To get around the park, it's wise to hop onto one of the golf carts (if you can find one) going by. If not, you'll be hoofing it; but if ya hoof it, you can stop & check out all the scenery (flowers & wildlife) along the way.

Gotta add: XpuHa's pool cannot be beat. Just perfect. Huge enough for seclusion off in your own corner, had a really neat showering-off area, and the bar! The best Banana Monkey's you'll EVER taste!

The snorkeling lagoon was incredible... clear, full of fishes & even a manatee! The Ecopark itself had all sorts of birds & reptiles & big colorful fish.

The restaurant was a lot higher-class than the one at Cancun Palace; it was also a buffet-style place, but they had SUSHI here.

XpuHa also has it's own private beach; it's nothing like the wild'n'crazy beach at the other resorts! It was totally cordoned off, had straw umbrellas stuck in the sand, and some rocky parts of the beach (which made for some very cool photos).

MELIA CANCUN
Melia Cancun...

MELIA CANCUN
Melia Cancun Beach & Spa Resort Paseo Kukulkan km 16.5. Cancun, Q. Roo 77500. Rate Range: From $190 to $330 per night
This resort resembles a Mayan Temple and has the largest hotel atrium in the Mexican Caribbean. A nice hotel with great views and swimming pools. What I remember best were the endless breakfasts at the sea shore, at one of the swimming pool restaurants. Fruit juices, cereals, toasts, scrambled eggs, ham, yoghourt, croissants, omelettes.... and back to the buffet again!!!

Hotel had two beaches

There were also 2 pools which were great.Again,one was in a quiet location and very relaxing and the other was the party pool,where the Amigos hotel Team played party and drinking games.There were also 5 bars which were open all the time in rotation.One bar was set in tropical gardens and this was my favourite one by far.I sat drinking my cocktail listening to tropical birds singing and watching the fish and turtles in the aquaruim.

Hotel had tropical fish pond

We stayed at Club Las Velas all inclusive.The hotel was perfect.It was built in the style of a Mexican village,with tropical gardens,fountains and a huge aquaruim with tropical fish and turtles.The buildings were only 2 stories high and built around the main square.It was very natural.The food was wonderful and the 24 hour bar was great.My favourite cocktail was Pina Colada.

Hotel had five restaurants

The evening meals were great too.There were 5 restaurants,i tried 3.My favourite was the chinese.The food was buffet and the drinks were waiter.The food here was freshly cooked and gorgous.As soon as my glass was nearly empty,they topped it up again.There was also a barbique near the pool from 11pm to 1am which was good because if you have been drinking alot,you need something to soak up all that alcohol.(great excuse)I enjoyed many burgers and chips here(help-my waistline
