Location: Grand Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Jamaica
Dates: February 2013
Purpose: R & R!
It was the time of year where most Canadians are sick of winter and are looking for that sunny getaway!
And we found the perfect place. It was slightly last minute and we had our reservations about Mexico, but we thought, we only have 7 days, let’s make the most of it!
We stayed in the tourist popular hotel zone of Cancún, Quintana Roo, Mexico at the ME Cancun (by Melia). It was the most beautiful, luxurious resort I’ve ever been to. The food was amazing and the drinks were plentiful. If you read reviews about this hotel on Trip Advisor (as I did), I was a little worried, but the “complaints” I read about were far from reality.
The staff were kind and ready to help at every opportunity. I can’t say enough great things about the food! And the party was exactly what I wanted!
The nightlife in Cancun was on another level. I’ve partied the nights away in Bangkok, New York City, Montreal & Toronto – but this was different. You spend the day as you do at an all inclusive resort. Break for power nap/shower and dinner. Then party at the clubs on the strip until the wee hours of the morning. Repeat until you can’t! We met great people at the hotel bar and pool and just decided it would be easier to go out in groups to the clubs. We went to a different place every night, even though we wanted to go back to Mandala. Mandala was by far the best, but we had good nights at The City beach club, Dady O’s, Senor Frogs. We were lucky to have a hotel that hosted parties as well. Never a dull moment.
Based on this vacation, I would go back to Mexico in a heart beat! The ME knows how to make you feel like a million bucks and I only hope that I do win the lottery so that I can rent out the ME Suite and fly my friends and I down for an amazing time!
