Partying it up in Cancun

... He gave us free Coronas, a map on how to get to and from the house to Zona Hotelara (party zone) and what buses to catch. He even dropped us off at Las Americas mall after we settled in.

At the mall we grabbed a quick lunch of pescado (fish) and cameron (prawns) fajitas. Quite filling and with full tummys we set out to try and get a bus to Zona Hotelara. The elusive bus 27 took ages to come so we decided to walk to the corner Sergio told us to, to get the bus. Not ...

Cancun day 5

... the wind picks up and it becomes overcast. So I sit by the pool and blog this. I get a little too relaxed by the pool. Sleep is beckoning. Is sleep the level of relaxation you want while lazing by the pool? And I don't want to be that snoring guy. So I get up, stretch, and make my way back to my room. It's still a few hours till dinner. I play with my phone and check the news. I leave for dinner only to find it's actually right next to my room in the theatre room. ...

... the shade. The bathrooms were beautiful with no queues (unheard of at home) and all the floors were marble. Both evenings we went out after to eat with friends which, added to everything else, made the weekend very enjoyable. My advice to anyone who is a position to serve abroad is to try it - whether its for a month or a year, just give it ago. We have met so many brothers and sisters who are now our friends and you get to see that we are in a worldwide ...

Coco Bongo!

A travel blog entry by acrossthesun

A slower day yesterday, I got up fairly late and spent some time just chilling at the hostel. I'm re-reading Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy at the moment which seems appropriate! I don't think I ever made it all the way through the series but I reckon I might manage it by the time I get back!

In the evening we played some poker in the hostel bar (not for money!) with some guests and staff, and had a few beers before Jon and I headed out to Coco Bongo, ...

... day!!!!
This kinda thing just doesn't happen in Australia so we took full advantage of our situation.

By the end of the day we were busting at the seems and loving it.

By far the best experience we could have had out of Cancun i think. although we were trying to go to hooters. but this was definitely a really sweet way to end our time traveling in central and South america.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Parnassus Resort & Spa Cancun

    Drinkers only

    from

    Nice hotel but nothing to do but drink there. Food ok, but always cold. Never enough coffee. Everybody expects tips on "all inclusive". Bartenders would take time waiting on you until you tipped them.

    Very Nice

    from

    This Hotel was recently remodeled and it is very

    nice and clean. We stayed here late Nov and we

    all loved it. The beach is beautiful, staff is friendly,

    and the food is great... The only negative is that

    the cleaning crew will absolutely steal any money

    that is left out in the open + they will make long

    distance phone calls from your room and you

    will get charged before you check out, so be

    carefull but overall this place is terrific.

    Loved it till

    from

    We had a wounderful trip. We had brought our 20 month old with us and we used the baby club. Thay are grate with kids she swam did arts and crafts. They would lay her down for her naps and feed her. It gave us a chance to spend some time together enjoying the sights and the beach. All was grate till we went to check out and was informed that a plastic soap dish was missing from are room. We had never had one in the room so we did not know it was missing. We tryed to tell them that it was never there and that we did not have it. We ask to speek to the manager. The person helping us went to tell him and when she came back she told us that he "did not wish to come out". Our ride was waiting to take us to the airport and we were holding up a couple. I had ask that are lugage be loaded in the waying car but they would not load it till thay got there $10 for this soap dish. We paid the money so we would quit holding up the couple who where sharing are ride. It is not the money that is the problem it is the insalt of being acqused of steeling. So as wounderful as the hotel and staff was we will not stay there agen. If the manager does not wish to help us out the this matter he will not in the bigger problems.

    Great Experience!

    from

    We were somewhat apprehensive about going to an all-inclusive, but we had an excellent experience. The hotel was beautiful, the food wonderful and the staff at the Golden Crown were friendly and always ready to help. When we return to Cancun the Golden Crown will be our destination of choice!

    Walk away from this one

    from

    My wife and I went here for our honeymoon Oct, 2001. Our first impression of this resort, if you can call it that, was to leave and go home. Driving to the hotel you see all of these beautiful hotels and resorts. When you arrive you hope you have the wrong place. It's small and unless you drink there is nothing free for you to do at all. After a rain storm one of the elevators had a waterfall coming through the top of it. Needless to say we took the stairs from then on. We ended up loving Cancun just not our mildew smelling hotel. Trust me it's worth a little more money to go elsewere. Like thay say, you get what you pay for.

    Great Value for the Money

    from

    I have just returned from a weekend away at Jack Tar Village in Cancun, and let me just say I was very impressed. We arrived and were instantly given our wristbands to go eat lunch. We ate at the snack bar, which had a wide selection of food that was fresh and good. They had made to order hamburgers and other things that were good for lunch. We did not check into our room untill 3pm and it was lovely. Very clean and spacious. They are renovating all of the rooms and we are told that this should be finished in about 1 year. We had a huge balcony that faced the lagoon, but it had the sunset and we were able to soak up the sun in the afternoon.

    Jack Tar - Cheap trip to Cancun

    from

    I, along with six other friends stayed at the Jack Tar last July. I was not impressed with this resort what so ever. I expected a lot due to my previous trip to Cancun the year before. I had stayed at the Barcelo Maya Beach resort and was extremely impressed. The Jack Tar was small, had crappy food, crappy alcohol, and crappy customer service. I lost my wrist band one night and had to pay a real nice fee to get a new one, even though the hotel employees new that I was staying there. The good thing about this place was that for young adults ... it was cheap, party friendly, and there was always something to do (ie. girls, volyball, beer drinking contests, etc.) I did have a lot of fun because I made it a point to have fun. I can honestly say that I only spent one night in that hotel. The other nights I spent in the sister resort Caribean Village. The Jack Tar is by far much more fun than the C.V. That place is setup for families and has little activities that the younger crowd would enjoy. Over all ... I would probably rate the Jack Tar as a low 3 (out of 5).

    Poor Jack Tar

    from

    We just got back from our second trip to Jack Tar Village in three years. Jack Tar should be completely remodeled or just torn down. Cheap, dirty, unsafe are just a few words of description. We picked Jack Tar because of the no kids policy and recommended it to our friends who joined us on their first trip to Cancun. This trip was our fifth. The building was in bad shape, poor landscaping, dirty hall-ways, electrical panels uncovered in numerous locations. Rotting stairways. The liquor was so cheap even college kids were going across the street to buy their own after paying for the all inclusive package. The help was good considering what they had to work with. The room was clean but Beat..Cheap old furniture, no clock, no ice, broken door.

    A Great Honeymoon

    from

    My bride and I took our summer honeymoon at the Village in June of 1999. Yes, it rained 4 of the 7 nights we stayed, but when you think about it, a hard summertime rain in steamy heat is just about as romantic as you could get! The rains were short and driving, and were a great excuse to tuck away for a couple hours and 'watch a movie' together.

    Jack Tar Village - Cancun

    from

    I stayed at the Jack Tar Village in Cancun in early November of 2001. I have to admit that upon arrival I was shocked at how dumpy the property appeared. The exterior of the building was badly stained and all of the plants in the exterior built-in plant boxes were either dead or removed. There was no doorman or bellhop present so my wife and I hauled our own luggage into the lobby.
