... scratches and bruises due to her sea wave throw around, good old Katie!
Cooz and I are now just enjoying sipping on some margaritas (yes we have consumed ALOT of margaritas here) with a view of the ocean before we say goodbye to Cancun and goodbye to each other soon! Next stop LA for a night and then my travel companion Cooz leaves for home as I carry on to meet George in Istanbul for a Turkish adventure!
... have to be simple so I don't have to spend much time cooking here. When we go home to England we have to live with my parents for two weeks until our tenant moves out. I am already putting in meal requests with my mum, I just hope it doesn't fall on deaf ears, I'm desperate for a full roast dinner and curry goat with rice and peas. Next time I will be bringing more food in my suitcase, yes I am already talking about a next time ; ...

He showed us spots to get all the great poses that friends back home would enjoy. Smart Jose. I even spotted a few others trying to get innovative.
Explored some more of the city (we had a tour of 'new town', developed after the older structures on the outskirts). Although with only 10% uncovered, I don't know how they can be so certain of these claims. Nonetheless saw ...
... no one else (besides our guide) bothered to even try to talk to us even though I tried to speak Spanish with them. On the last day of our tour they all started cranking out English words though, maybe they just didn't like us. But we were also the only people under 50 besides the two girls travelling with their folks as well. Ah well anyway we didn’t need them because we had the magic of Mexico to explore. Brent and I have never spent this long in one country ...

It was fantastic to see the effect of the outer reaches of the storm. During the day, the storm decreased in magnitude, but unfortunately Bess' Thursday flight was canceled before noon on Wednesday, so we had to start making other arrangements for her to get home. Our concierge staff was a big help!

Historical Traveler Reviews Bel Air Collection Resort & Spa Cancun
Hi: I am a travel agent. We went to the Bel Air and found it to be a home away from home. The location is great with a wonderful beach - very wide for lots of walking and swimming. The pool is great - looks over the beach and ocean. The place is very new, kept very well - they are always cleaning. The staff are very good -- always ready to helpyou. The food, what can I say? Fantanstic! Always a different menue everynight and lunch. The quality of the food is great. I took 2 friends, one of whom owns a number of restaurants. He could not but rave about the food. The place is not for young people who are looking to party. It is a place to relax - away from the noise. It was so good I have already recommended it to my clients. I have put a few pictures in for your viewing. I will be going back!
Like entering a new world
The hotel is top luxury, the atention is marvelous and everyone makes you feel right at home. The food is outstanding!! With a great variety and quality of beverages, spending time at the pool watching the ocean... A totally new and wonderful experience
TIP NOT INCLUDED the server, Rosy, wrote in big capital letters on the bill presented to us for two bottles of water served to us while we relaxed on the beach on the last day of our vacation. Tipping at the Bel Air is expected, even if you're on the Gourmet Plan, an all inclusive plan.
Our stay here was fairly pleasant, however not what we expected by reading their website (they need to clarify a few things). Firstly, it is not a typical all-inclusive for a few different reasons, (1) extremely quiet (to the point that it's dead, our nickname for the hotel was "white morgue") - there's hardly any music, and if there is it's mostly spa-like music; very few people hang out at the lobby bar, maybe 2-4 people in total or usually none at all; no nightly shows, no volleyball, no classes, ie. aerobics etc. (2) tipping - usually you don't have to tip at an all-inclusive, here it is almost mandatory. The website also makes it seem like there's many different restaurants - there is only one, and there is a different menu for room service. The website also indicates no children, except over the age of 12 -- wrong, we had quite a few children under that age the week we were there.
This hotel is not what it is made out to be. The websites are very missleading. They basically took a piece of the tired resort called Cancun Plaza and painted it white and called it the Bel Air Collection.
The beach is not for kids.
stay there for 9 nights and spendt new years eve there.
At first we were very impressed. The rooms are great and the staff very friendly.
But new yars eve a lot of the staff got fired for drinking and the service dropped dramatily. One day we didnt get any breakfast, we left the resturant after 30 min.
The sea is very rough og the red flag was up on the beach constantly during our stay, and the lifeguard where very bizy saving people.
We had a great time in Cancun and hope the Bel air solve their starfproblems. It could be a really great place.
Well, I just returned from the Bel Air in Cancun, where I celebrated my one year wedding anniversary, and I have to say that the Bel Air is a contender for the best hotel in Cancun. Let me break down all aspect of the hotel for you....
Relaxing, Romantic, Modern, Perfect!!!
I just logged to the internet searching for "modern hotels in cancun", that's when i found it!!
I was able to book directly on the hotel's web site and saved a bunch of money and time. The reservations manager was super kind and helpful when we closed the deal.
I loved everything from the moment I got there: the service, the food, the design, the spa, the gym, even the crew was great and friendly!!
The most relaxing vacations of my life, perfect for a honeymoon!! ;-)
If you want to get a relaxing or a romantic getaway, this is the perfect hotel to stay in. We had a great experience staying in this hotel. It's located in quite peaceful and safe neighborhood, perfect for beach walks, and ocean view. The minimalist concept of the hotel is stupendously contemporary and graceful. Rooms are sophisticatedly furnished, spacious and scenic. Everything seemed crisp clean.
