20 hour journey and Cancun

... coughing three or four times I lost my voice momentarily and used up countless tissues. Unbelievably, I still like it, albeit in small doses.

Next, it was on to La Taberna, the best bar and maybe the only greatest bar in Cancun. The waitresses wore referee outfits and there were a mix of Mexican, Brazilian and Colombian fans eating, drinking and passionately following the Brazil v Colombia game. Marlene left after the first half and then I offered ...

Special Ministry Day on Isla Mujeres

... English speaking islanders to the memorial. We met in the lobby where we had our meeting for field service and the territory was dished out and groups gathered. A deal had been arranged for us to have golf carts for the whole day for £20 per cart with four passengers each. It took over half an hour for us to get to our territory. For some reason our cart was slower than the others which was frustrating. It was a hot humid day in the thirties so we stopped at ...

... had our first real Mexican dinner, guacamole & chips to start and fajitas. And with 2for1 happy hour in progress we couldn't be rude...margaritas all round!!

We took the local bus down to the hotel zone to find out what all the hype was about. After being on the bus for 45min we realised we missed our stop so it was a quick dart across the road to catch the bus from other direction. The main club zone was ...

... half of the show gave us some history to the Mayan culture including a game of Pelota, which is like football but you 'kick' the ball with your bum instead... pretty entertaining. They then set the ball on fire, thanks to "the god of fire" and we were treated to a fireball edition game of hockey. That part was probably my favourite. The second half involved lots of traditional dances and amazing costumes ...

Additionally, one of the best things about this job is that I'm lucky enough to have the luxury of 3 day weekends and so I am hoping to make the most of the natural beauty that can be found across Mexico, if I can ever drag ...

    Costa Real - You Get What You Pay For

    from

    I just returned from a vacation in Cancun and I enjoyed my stay at the Costa Real. We got a very cheap all inclusive deal for this hotel and were really not expecting much.

    Worst time ever

    from

    the bar closes to early the employees are rude ALL inclusive is (--) they charge you for everything they made me pay for a call made on my credit card and for a collect call they also didn't provide transportation to the airport like they said they would when i checked in room service stole my money out of the draw i they also didn't let me back in the hotel to get the hat i forgot after i checked out it was a trip to hell i was never so happyas i was to be back in new york

    Nice Stay

    from

    We have stayed at the Costa Real twice, and enjoyed it both times. They have plenty of entertainment and the food is great. The first time we went, the beach area needed a little help, but had improved quite a bit on our second visit. The people working there were great. Anything you needed, they were there to help. The rooms were clean and the grounds were well kept. We even had an efficiency on our second stay, that was great. We could cook, and keep a large amount of food in our room. This worked out great since we had taken my brother (a big eater) with us. I definately recommend the Costa Real. Laboom is right across the street. Your about five minutes from town by bus. The lobster dinner cruise boards right by the hotel, which is a great picture with you in front of that large pirate ship. Remember, Cancun is what you make of it. If you don't have a good time, maybe you should look at yourself. LOL, Babyboo

    Rip off city

    from

    If you are going to visit the costa real in cancun, be prepared! Your stay will be fabulous until your checkout. They will try to charge you an arm and a leg to replace items in your room that there is nothing wrong with. They charged me 285 dollars, not pesos, to replace the curtains because of one small spot of blood. No joke. They take advantage of young american people because we are in a place that is not familiar to us and they know that we have our parent's creditcards. That is not it though. They charged my friend 100 dollars to replace a cheap 6lb. lamp in the room because it was chipped. So prepare yourself and if I were you I would choose a better hotel. The food is not good either. And the matresses are like rocks.The bar was great though!

    Damn peacocks

    from

    I can only mirror what everyone else has had to say about this establishment - It makes a fantastic holiday and the staff are great - HOWEVER. why would such a great hotel insist on having free-roaming peacocks throughout the hotel complex and beach area. On several occasions the birds attacked me, my wife and children - and being such big animals they were hard to fight off. The birds were always very aggresive and often pecked at my feet in the resteraunt. Try not to let this put you off - as it really is a great place but if you do not like birds this is definatley not the place for you

    Great Fun

    from

    We had a wonderful time at this hotel. Lots and lots of great food. Thet do need a little updating but it was fine...Very clean and friendly.....

    We enjoyed the Costa Real Hotel and Suites

    from

    We stayed at this hotel in March of 2002. We would highly recommend the all inclusive option, it was great not carrying any money with us during the days by the beach. The rooms were slightly outdated but the rest of the hotel was very nice. The pool area was beautiful, the beach was small but never crowded. The beach bar was very quaint and fun. We really liked the size of this hotel. We have stayed at bigger resorts and it seems to take so long to get from one place to another.

    Awesome hotel-the food needs work

    from

    We recently stayed in Cancun for Spring Break. Costa Real was an excellent hotel, the service was great! The resort is smaller than some of the other hotels, but you get to know everyone. The only dissapointing thing was the food..the drinks were excellent. I would highly recommend staying here if you are between the ages of 18-25. If not, maybe try the Grand Caribe Real, a sister hotel with way better food!

    Would go back

    from

    We just returned from a 3 night stay at the Costa Real and found it fabulous. The service was phenomenal and the food very good. The atmosphere is very relaxed and quiet. The beach was small, but very comparable to other beaches we saw.

    Costa Real Hotel, 4 Star Resort Review

    from

    We recently stayed in the Costa Real Hotel in Cancun For a week in November. We went through Sun Trips. Sun Trips were excellent, friendly and very hassle free. They picked us up from the airport and took us directly to the hotel. Costa Real has a very tiny beach and is right next to the dock where the "party" and "tourist" boats leave from. There is a very tiny swim beach and usually when the boats are getting ready it gets pretty stinky. We did the all inclusive which was great! The staff at the Costa Real were very friendly and helpful. We booked our trip in advance of course, but we didn't get to the hotel to check in until 7 p.m. when we got their they told us they had overbooked the hotel and the only two rooms they had were a room with either just a king bed, but by a very very noisy area (whatever that meant) or they had a suite room with two double beds. Being annoyed that I couldn't have a room with a view we took the suite room which overlooked the parking lot towards the lagoon. Watch out for overbookings! Mexico's FOUR **** star hotels are not the same standards as four stars in America or anywhere else that I have been for that matter. The pool is not that big and the entire pool is only 4 feet deep. Costa Real has a great beach bar outside right on the beach that I found quite enjoyable! The people that let you take the kayaks, paddle boats, etc. out on the resort there are rude and were rude to us each and every time! We went and asked for a kayak, which we were told was part of our all inclusive and the first time they said come back at 10 a.m. so we went back at 10 and they said, well a "tour" just went out and took all the kayaks and we won't have any available until noon. What's up with that?
