The menu for today was pretty much as the same as yesterday - Relaxing, swimming, cocktails, water-sliding, kipping & a few more cocktails.

Laura was very keen for us to all be up early this morning so that she could maximise swimming & water-sliding time, so we were out of our room and having breakfast by around 8.30. The rest of …

This morning we decided to have a full day of just swimming & enjoying the facilities at the resort.
So that's exactly what we did.

To start things off we were just lazing around the pool mid morning when there was a competition to guess the number of small nuts in a plastic cup. We all had a go at guessing, and so did everyone …

This morning we awoke to cloudy skies, but still warm. There had been some good rain overnight, but it was not raining when we had our breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the ocean. After brekky, the kids went on the water slides etc, whilst the adults found a spare cabana with lounges & generally took it all very easy sipping on cocktails …

What can we say? Sun, water, blue skies, free food, free alcohol. Beautiful morning, slightly cloudy afternoon, with late rain (how's that for a weather report). The girls all got their hair braided and did some painting of various ceramic items that we bought - some very crafty work indeed.

We finally got to have our first sleep in of the …

Carly's official birthday (US time) was not ideal for her as we were out of our hotel by 7am, and on our way to sunny Mexico. New York was again very cold and wet. We were grateful that this was the end of our time and not the start. I have never seen so much traffic built up with cars bumper to bumper in 6 lanes for around 3km on their way onto …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Gran Caribe Real Resort & Spa Cancun

    A truly disgusting all inclusive hotel

    from

    My wife and I purchased a all inclusive vacation package from apple vacations to this the continental plaza in cancun. The food is disgusting and the service was terrible. We had to eat out to get a decent meal. We paid for our food up front we thought, but the food was not tolerable. The room is mold and mildew infested therefore the smell is unbearable. My wife and I both got sick from the room smell. The air conditioner doesnt blow cold air and the air it does blow is filled with mold and mildew. We are asking for a refund from our travel agent. This trip to the continental plaza was torture for 7 days. Not a good deal at 750per person considering we had buy our food all the time since the food was so bad. Go to this hotel at your own risk.

    You get what you pay for!

    from

    I was at the Continental Plaza, in early May. The hotel accomadations are reasonable for the price that you pay for it. My only complaints, and this is to help the hotel, was the air conditioning, it did not work well; the door to our room was very shaky(it didn't seem sturdy enough; the plumbing needs a little updating. Please do keep in mind this facility is probably about 20 years old, so these kinds of things are to be expected.

    Great time

    from

    i stayed at the continental plaza in may, i thought it was very nice. the food was good, the room was very big. the people were very nice. the pool was a little dirty, but i spent most of my time at the beach. it is pretty close to the airport, about 25 min. it was also close to the attractions like a mall which is about 1 block away and very close to senor frogs and a flea market.

    my biggest complaint was that the air conditioner was not very cold. but that was ok, as we spent most of our time outdoors.

    i thought all in all it was a good place to stay, at a good price. i am going back the second week in july.

    All inclusive accomadations

    from

    From beginning to end on Apple Vacations, our trip was awesome. I am a 45 yr old female with a 44 yr old female & her 17 yr old son. Fun was had by all ages. Good food

    and drinks. Good service and clean big rm.

    I few tips here & there & things were even better. The people of MX work hard & give great service. The food was fantastic & the rm was always clean. My only comp. was that the pools got cloudy and not kept very clean. I then resorted to the beautiful ocean which is God's country. All in all I would highly recommend the Continental Plaza for the money. If you want 6 Star,pay the big bucks & get a big fancy rm. You can

    have it all at the Continental. I will be back!!Foods-drinks-room-service A+++++++

    Worst Hotel to Ever Stay At!!!!

    from

    I went for a relaxing vaction to the Continetal Plaza hotel in Cancun with one of my friends and all I recieved was a headache. We went to this hotel at the end of May 2002 and the first night that we were there we were robbied. The locks on the doors did not work because they were completly rusted through so if you pulled on the door it would just come open. My friend and I lost all of our identification, credit cards, and many other personal belongings. When we told the hotel they did not seem to care at all and it was literally the worse service that I have ever experienced. The hotel did nothing to help us and were completly rude to us. The only help we got was from other Americans. This hotel is extremly unsafe because there were three robberies in three days and that includes the fact that most of the stuff was stolen from the saftey deposit boxes in your room. Not only is this hotel unsafe and unfriendly but all of the service and food is horrible! I should know because after I was robbed at this hotel we had no money to go out and enjoy anywhere else. STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL unless you want to lose everything and have a horrible vacation!!!!!

    Great place to stay!

    from

    I stayed at the Continental Plaza with my boyfriend for a week in late April. The hotel was very clean, the rooms were more than comfortable and very spacious. Service was instant and always given with a smile! The pool area was entertaining with a variety of activities and the ocean just a dream. I suggest anyone who is looking for a great vacation at a reasonable price stay here and have a great time.

    It is what you make of it

    from

    On April 23,2002 my wife and I (30 yrs old)and 9 of are friends went to cancun to enjoy a all inclusive vacation package purchased through funjet travel. The food that was included in the package was nothing to brag about but we had an excellent time. Lomas travel helped us book a bar hop package for $50 per person and it was just like you see on MTV in was great. We walked the beaches until 4:30 in the morning and felt very safe the whole time. The sun is very intense make sure you wear sun screen.(ha,ha)

    Continental Plaza Cancun: EXCELLENT

    from

    The Continental Plaza in Cancun is an excellent choice. The last person who reviewed this resort was very negative. The drinks were fine. I dont know how you can water down a shot of tequila. They will give you what you ask for. Especially if you go all inclusive. Everything is included, so you can drink as much as you like. You can eat as much as you like. I just returned from there 4/29/02 and I had a terrific stay. This was my second time visiting Cancun and I couldnt have asked for more. The staff was very, very friendly and helpful. The food was great. I didnt like everything (octopus), but there was a wide variety of things to choose from. If you love breakfast, the omlette station wad magnificient. The wait staff was very fast and always willing to make things as comfortable as possible. For example: I was getting ready to eat a slice of cheesecake. I didnt have a fork and without me saying a word, one of the waiters placed a fork by my side. I thought that was great. The beach area was great. It was very comfortable and the waves were terrific. I rented a boogie board one day for $6 and rode the waves all day!!! I cant forget the nightly entertainment and theater shows. They were fabulous. I traveled to Cancun with just my mother. She had previously gone to Cancun and stayed at the Royal Solaris. She said she enjoyed Continental Plaza much better.
