... and chocolate martinis. What a perfect dinner and the best part - it was free. Angel walked us to a club where we had free entry, a roped off VIP area and free drinks all night!! The area was covered in confetti, streamers, balloons and party poppers, so fabulous. Living like rock stars, we partied all night till the early hours of the morning. Epic evening, thanks Ilsa.
Day 2: Heads were feeling slightly hazy but a swim in the pool fixed that. We spent ...
Up this morning for a quick breakfast an then it was time to say goodbye to the remaining guys that I have spent the past 2 weeks with. Poppy, Tariq, Peter and I all caught a Taxi to the airport, however we had to drop the guys off at Poppy's airport first as the taxi driver wasn't able to leave the airport with passengers for some reason. This made me a little more stressed. I was already stressed as I had only realised this morning that I hadn't taken into account time at ...
So I woke up feeling a little withdrawn. Lonely. I have nothing planned for the day and I believe that is what is effecting me the most. Visiting Chichen Itza reminded me what this trip really is about; exploring things that are specifically fascinating to me. Though I really don't have too much interest in that period of history, the Mayan ruins were extremely fascinating. I didn't even know there was Mayan ruins in Mexico until it was mentioned to me by Johnno at ...
This was one of the best days I've had in my life. We had breakfast and got in a cab to the Puerto Jurez ferry terminal to catch a ferry across the Caribbean Sea, 20 mins to Isla Mujeres. Bobbie had done her research and found the cheapest ferry to catch, we got on board and sat up top in the lovely hot sun, while a guy played songs on his guitar for us and we looked out over the crystal blue waters all the way to the Island. The singer played about 6 songs on the trip, one ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Crown Paradise Club Cancun
Crown Paradise has a fantastic entertainment staff by the main pool, they really cater to children! The food is fine in the buffet, excellent in the 50's restaurant and pretty good in La Piazza too. We have stayed there twice, March of 2001 and July 2002, both times in the newer tower and NO mildew smell at all.
First of all I think it is definetly better to book a Crown Club room. I heard from several people that the Crown club rooms are much better than the old ones. My husband and I stayed there for the week of August 31-Sept 05 and it was awesome. The CPC has purchased the Jack Tar Village and it is called the Golden Paradise now, we were told upon our arrival that we could also visit that property and eat, drink and play for free as well with transportation provided. The mini bar in the room is included in the all inclusive package even though the web site says there is an extra charge. We got free internet access on the crown club floor, unlimited 24 hour room service, express check in and check out. The employees would make all reservations for you whether it was for a restaurant on the property or one downtown. (Saving you the phone charges) All of the employees smiled all the time and seemed to love their jobs, with the exception of some of the gift shop clerks on the property, they couldn't care less if you bought anything or not which was kind of a welcome change from the downtown shopkeepers. We were never asked to pay a deposit or leave a credit card imprint either. I don't know if they neglected to ask or if it is no longer policy. The pools and the beach were beautiful. The drinks were definetly NOT watered down. I got tipsy after one margarita. Normally it would take about three. Employees were CONSTANTLY cleaning everywhere. So it was spotless the entire time we were there. As for the food, the buffet was the best, because there were several stations that cooked to order. They had a hamburger station with burgers grilled in front of your eyes, a pizza station with pizza made to order, sushi, oriental, where you can choose the ingredients and they cook it for you, mexican, the same thing, pasta, thats not to mention the regular buffet. OOH and the desserts, delicious! There is something for every taste at the buffet. We were NEVER hungry or thirsty. Our favorite bar was... or "the HELMET drink" or better yet tell someone you are with to ask for it so you can watch! We will definetly be going back!
This was a beautiful place to relax - Kids' Club was great fun for an hour or two though we preferred to spend the majority of our time together as a family - Beware of the henna tattoos - I didn't know anything about them and she has developed an allergic reaction a week later - the warnings about "black henna" tattoos are scary and can be found in abundance on the net. I never would have allowed her to get one if I had known what I do now. The entertainers were entertaining but the belly-flop contest for kids (off a high stool) in 4 ft. of water is a potential parapalegic accident waiting to happen. My sister was a professional diver (cliffs in Hawaii) and diving into shallow water is a bad contest idea. I suggested to the director a biggest splash contest/cannonball as an alternative. I don't think he took me seriously. We found the beach and pools beautiful - use lots of sunscreen as the Mexican sun is intense - liked Wayne's Boots but would pass on the Italian rest. - No one in our family got sick from water/food with the exception of my husband -- I think he just overindulged...We'd come back!
Just finished our stay July 28,2002 with my wife and four kids (5,11,14,14). Definitely stay in the new tower as old tower is not well maintained, smaller rooms and has a bath room which is small and poorly located. We were originally placed in old tower but got switched. Pools and beach were very nice. Food was ok. A large food court open all the time but we tired of food after several days. The other restuarants were good, not great, but had no menus for children. Must make res. 24 hrs in advance. Minature golf course was poor but youngest child enjoyed it regardless. Don't expect U.S. drinks, only Corona for beer and Mexican wines. Can get hard alcohol, but nothing topshelf. Staff is friendly and bus transportation readily available, no need for taxis. Probably would not stay there again but still had a decent time.
Crown Paradise is a wonderful place! I did a lot of research before booking vacation and I am so glad I booked the Crown Paradise. You are treated as royalty by staff. The rooms are nice, very clean. I do not have one complaint and I am a very picky person! I traveled with my teenaged daughter. I felt perfectly safe during the entire vacation. One hint... in order to get those choice loungers under the shaded area, you must go down before 7:30 and put your towels on them. It is worth it, you can stay outside all day in doing this! The buffet was huge there is something for every one. It was also fun talking to other guest, there where people from all over the world there. The hotel is Very Kid Friendly!
Crown Paradise in June 2002
Hi, we stayed at the Crown Paradise Club from June 17-July 2. It is a great resort with children. They have a wonderful kids club for which you can drop off the kids under the age of 12 from 9:00 A.M. til 9:45 P.M. Overall it was a nice hotel. Did not like the food and the waiting in lines for food and drinks. The beach is nice but the waves and undertow where really strong. I would go back with the kids but not for adults.
The place was fantastic. When we got out of the shuttle from the airport (an experience all by itself), a bell boy met us and called us by name, even before we gave it. Room was fantastic with an incredible view of the pool and water. Room was very clean with the only negative being a slight mildew smell (all hotel rooms in Cancun seem to have this). The service at the bars were great and so was the buffet although they had lots of stations that cooked to order too. Probably the only weak spot were the restaurants. Under-sized portions and slow, snooty service seemed to be the norm. The bright spot was their Western restaurant called Waynes Boots. Fantastic steak and incredible service. Could have eaten their all week. Pool and entertainment staff were great and really make you feel at home. Feel free to email at email@example.com if you want to know more.
Great place for a family vacation.
We took our three children ages 2,6 & 8 to the Crown Paradise. It was more than wonderful. The older two could come and go as they pleased to the children's water park. They also provided activities, meals and evening entertainment for them at no extra cost. There is a fifties resteraunt that is adults only, so we let the kids eat and play while we enjoyed a dinner alone. It's the best of both worlds. Lots of things for the kids, and there is also a way for Mom & Dad to be alone.
We stayed at the CPC in January, 2002. This is an absolutely wonderful hotel. We saw people from infants to senior citizens having a ball! The rooms are very nice and comfortable (we were in the new tower with a fabulous view of the pool and Caribbean). The food is out of this world at all restaurants (the buffet restaurant is incredible!), the activities are fun, and the staff treats you like royalty! Unfortunately, due to overbooking, we needed to stay at a nearby all-inclusive hotel for 3 nights until a room opened up. We were able to use both facilities during that time with transportation provided. We ended up spending a wonderful 4 days at the CPC, and for the inconvenience, they gave us vouchers good for a free weeks stay next year! It was definitely worth the inconvenience!
What a wonderful place!
The CPC is amazing. Everything about it - food, staff, pools, beach, activities, rooms - everything! All-inclusive at the CPC is the way to go - you can't beat the price for what you get!
