Best Vacation Ever

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 8, 2009

Hotel has been completely remodeled since Hurricane Wilma. Beach is small but well maintained, they rake the sand every morning and remove any seaweed that washed ashore during the night. Room overlooked the quiet pool and was very clean and the AC froze us out. Beds are hard, but have read that about all the Cancun Hotels, they probably buy from the same manufacturer. I took my own pillow and that helped. Food was great and service was too. We took our own large cups to the pool and the bartenders gladly filled them. When drinking mixed drinks we tipped $1 and sometimes the drinks were almost "too" strong. Sexy pool was a hoot ! Yes, many women were topless and entertainment was adult themed but not trasy. However, if you're a prude, go elsewhere. We read reviews that there were "swingers" there, but if so, we never saw any public sexual activity. Coco Bongo's and a tour of the Chichen Izta ruins are a must. If you're there on Sunday book your Chichen Izta tour with the resort. It's only $79 in a private van with 13 guests max and includes stopping at a Senotes, which is absolutely beautiful. Other tours on line average $95 in a bus with 45 passengers, stopping a multiple resorts to pick people up. We booked Coco Bongos through the resort for $50 instead of the $40 offered elsewhere, but that included a reserved table which was great since the show is from 10:30 to 3am. It's open bar and they started by serving shots of Tequila while we were in line. The show is out of this world and you're free to dance at the same time. The only negative: When checking in you're directed to the concierge to get info on the resort and they pressure you into a private tour the next morning for 1 hour and offer you a $100 resort voucher for your time. The truth is that this is a high pressure time share sales pitch. When we tried to stop the presentation at 1 hour and asked for our voucher, the manager Pedro was called in who told us it was really 90 minutes and we had to hear the entire presentation to get our voucher. We had to get ugly, threaten to post negative reviews on the internet exposing them for misrepresenting themselves as well as talking to everyone in the resort about it, just to get out of there. Yes, we got our voucher but it was a very negative way to start our vacation. Several people we talked to were stuck in there for 4 hours or more, so AVOID THIS AT ALL COSTS and just keep saying no no no!! Other than that, this was the perfect vacation, we hated to leave and are already booking another trip next year. We are 50 and 54, have raised our 4 children and it was great to get away without a bunch of kids running around!!

Unique Quality: We've read reviews about poor bar service at the pool but we never experienced that. As a matter of fact they have a waitress circling the sexy pool all afternoon and we never even had to get out of the pool most of the time. I read a review dated last week saying there was only 10 chairs around the pool. I don't know where that person was because there was at least 75-100 chairs around the sexy pool. The quiet pool had about 30-40 chairs. We did go down to the pool by 7-9am every morning to put towels on our chairs to reserve them, and everybody respected that process. One girl near us got drunk and forgot her shoes, cup and sunscreen on her chair and they were still there the next morning. The first night we called the front desk at 9:30pm because our "sexy lights" in the headboard were not working. The maintenance man knocked on our door 10 minutes later, checked them out to see what he needed to fix them, and they were fixed the next morning. They have entertainment every night at 9:30, but we never saw the shows because we were having too much fun doing other things. Take the bus for 75 cents, they're safe, come every 5 minutes and the bus drivers are very helpful and understand English and will drop you where you want to go. Avoid the cabs at all costs. They are expensive and try to take advantage of you. The Mexican people are very poor and constantly try to sell you stuff, just say "no gracious" and keep walking. Exchange USD for Pesos at the conversion booths outside the malls, you get the best rate with no commission fees, much better than the airport or resort.

Have The Time Of Your Life In Cancun

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 20, 2007

We Had the best time of our lives at blue bay getaway. we were there in '05 and there were some things that could be improved upon. During our trip this time in June '07 we noticed that the food was much better, the sevice wonderfull, the people so nice. This is not the place for the faint of heart. Adults only is taken to whole new level, it is nothing like hedonism, any full nudity is done in a very controlled enviornment with activity directors in attendance, mostly be prepared to see alot of topless sunbathers, everyone wears bottoms and there are many rules, if you dont want to be involved in any games you dont have to participate or even watch, things of a risque nature all happen at the sexy pool, you can choose to hang at the quiet pool. The staff keeps everone's energy levels going and entertained all day long, Dj playing at the pool all day, Bartenders moving so fast you never wait long for a drink at diegos swim up bar. This is a non stop party adult enviornment, mostly it is couples coming to keep to themselves and have a good time. you have no idea how attentive your husband can be while you are running around topless the whole time! And after a few tequila shots its easy cause nobody is staring at you...everone else is so why not!? It is SO freeing once you just do it!!! I guess there probably were couples "swinging" but we didnt see any of it as that is not what we are looking for....it is a great place to go reconnect with your spouse and have a great time with each other in a really fun enviornment. The weather is always perfect, the beach beautiful, the food and staff out of this world! Ladies, your husbands will sit still while you sunbathe all day because there is plenty for him to look at all day..and who cares? when you go to your room mid afternoon it will all be worth it, you will never see him so happy and willing.....

Unique Quality: In the morning you need to make your dinner reservations for that evening. If you are staying 7 nights you get 3 meal tickets , one for each of the fancy restaurants...Definately use them, this is the 5 star cuisine. The rest of the time you eat at the buffet which has diffrent theme nights and the food is so good and there is so much of it! Breakfast is also at the buffet, you have omelettes fresh made in front of you and anything else you can think of... and there are two places to have lunch and late snacks until 5am!!! Three pools, jacuzzis set into the pools, leather double beds covered in netting to lay out under the stars by the bar at night while a very attentive waiter serves you drinks and whatever else you need. Hilarious risque games by the sexy pool during the day, participation optional and nothing that bad, all in good fun! A word to the wise, dont play tequila volleyball unless you are prepared to lose and have to get totally naked...LOL There is a saying at Blue Bay...nobody knows you and nobody gives a ***! Have fun, let loose, there is no better value than blue bay getaway in cancun. Blue bay club is for families, Desire is also part of blue bay, that IS like hedonism, everybody naked all the time, blue bay getaway is somewhere in the middle, FUN, but not too much!! If you don't want to really see "too" much, dont turn on the tv to channel 12, yes, right on regular TV!!!!! Oh my, just go, you wont be sorry! And dont Miss Senior Frogs either...It is THE place to go in Cancun. Go around 7:30 and have dinner, food is EXcellent and then you dont have to pay a cover, can party all night!!! Warning, not for single guys, most of the women are there with significant other and can lead to frustration!!!!!!!

Directions: Quintana Roo - Mexico This hotel is at the end of the hotel Zone, you will need to take a taxi or bus (cheap) to the nightlife area of cancun ( 10 min.) although there is plenty of nightlife happening at blue bay to keep you entertained.

My Fears Come to Life at Blue Bay Getaway

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 28, 2007

People like me don't belong at Blue Bay Getaway.
To find out if you're a person like me, answer the following questions:
1. Do you enjoy watching drunk people give lap dances?
2. Do you like cockroaches in your room?
3. Do you find pleasure in listening to Kenny G?
4. Do you think full frontal nudity is a necessary part of a beer drinking contest?
5. Do you prefer the sound of the people in the adjoining room clipping their toenails at 3 a.m. to the sound of the ocean?
6. Do you like beaches covered in seaweed?
7. Do you like cold swimming pools and showers?
If you answered No to at least 4 of the above questions, you are like me. And you do not belong at Blue Bay Getaway.

We cut our stay short and switched hotels midweek.

Unique Quality: Here are some things I did enjoy:

The Village Wok restaurant on the property served me a tasty meal. I felt like I was able to get away from the Getaway there.

The equipment in the gym worked.

Not having kids around was a nice touch, although many of the adults were far more obnoxious than your average 7-year-old.

There's an underutilized game room with two billiards tables hidden behind the spa.

There are swings at the bar by the Sexy Pool. Yes, it's actually called the Sexy Pool.

Very Good Adult Resort for couples

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 29, 2007

I really liked the weather and the clean water there. It was very interesting place and I really liked the All Inclusive food and service and Drinks at the Bars.

Unique Quality: The Pool and the Beach were very interesting. This was definitely an adult oriented place.

Directions: This is a long ways from the Airport. Taking a Taxi will cost $20. That is a good way to go.
I took an Orbitz shuttle from the Airport to the Hotel.
