Cancun Part 1

If you are considering of going to the Cancun/Riviera Maya area in the near future, here are some tips from a recent client.  She and her husband started in Cancun and made their way down to Tulum during a relaxing 10 day trip.

Westin Lagunamar/Cancun – I loved the hotel!  The room was beautiful and big.  We were in the new section, which still has some construction going on but it was pretty quiet for the most part.  I loved the bathroom, the soaking tub has a sliding wall that separates the bathroom and bedroom so when you slid it open you had a view of the bedroom and the ocean!!  The staff were incredibly helpful and pleasant.  Downside, the food was so-so.
Mahekal Beach Resort/Playa del Carmen – Great place!  Room and bathroom were nice and spacious, although limited furniture.  The porch was nice with 2 hammocks.  Would definitely recommend requesting the top unit if staying in the 2 unit bungalows, unless you have kids and do not want to deal with steps.  They have over 100 rooms but they did a great job spreading out the bungalows so the resort did not feel big or cramped.  Food was average at best.  Breakfast was our best bet.  The location of the hotel was also nice and in a cute little neighborhood which seems up and coming.  We could easily walk-down to 5th street.  I would definitely recommend this place for families and for weddings.  Not sure how they do weddings there but it would be a great hotel for guest accommodations!
El Pez/Tulum – Best place!!  Love, love, love the hotel and town!!  All 4 of us ranked this as # 1 and cannot wait to go back.  The beach front rooms were spectacular, killer views.  The rooms were nice too.  Note, the bathroom is part of the room which did not bother us but may bother others.  Next door was the SandBar which served breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Food was fantastic – basic but delicious.  Dinner was BBQ!  No shoes required since it was on the beach.  Staff were wonderful too.  Another great restaurant is Mateo’s, located a block away.  Best tacos ever!  Great vibe too!!  I’m not sure El Pez does weddings but it would be an incredible place to have one.  One possible downside is the area was breezy, not sure if this is common for Tulum.  I know its popular with kiteboarders so it may be.
