We had a pleasant flight to Cancun, although Robert had his spanner taken off him (the one he found in the road in Houston) at the airport. We got the transport ok to the Beach Paradise Hotel our home for 8 nights. We checked in and unpacked totally, bliss! the room was great, large double bedroom, lounge area and en-suite. It had great views over …
... luckily removing my phone and wallet. I tried to climb on the large inflatable ring but as much as I tried, I couldn't get on the bloody thing. I gave up eventually and laid on the sand. I was close to falling asleep so I picked myself up and went back to my room. I was tracking sand everywhere. I had a shower and spent a majority of the time getting the sand out of the million pockets my good shorts have. Alarm set for my Mayan pyramid expedition tomorrow. And I was ...
So we are sitting in the airport waiting to board our plane to Cuba, not really sure what to expect once we get there but we have 6 nights to see what it's all about. Been waiting in the airport a while now so thought I would write an update before I forget what we've been up to. So after Contiki ended we had the extra night in Cancun, the next day we bused to Valladolid with Rizki and James who were from our group. We got ...
... we had a cabana right on the beach. Tulum was excellent. Far less developed, great sandy beach and some top restaurants! we spent many nights watching turtles lay their eggs on the beach, and also visited the Mayan ruins.From here we did a cenote (cave) dive which was very different and quite freaky!
After four sun filled days we jumped on a bus back to Cancun, stayed in a hostel a night an jumped on the plane back to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BelleVue Beach Paradise Cancun
Don't go there!
My husband and I stayed there for the honeymoon. Our first room had a broken showerhead, faulty safe and a cracked window. It took them two days to move us to a different room. The staff was rude. The buffet food left a lot to be desired. The "nice" restaurant that served dinner was pretty good. There are plenty of other hotels in Cancun that are nicer and just as reasonable. I definately would NOT recommend it to anyone!
Being Nice is Good
"Being nice is Good". This is what the Bellhop said as he brought our baggage to our 8th floor Suite that had a panaramic view of Cancun beach for miles. The oversized balcony gave a 270 degree view and was right over the beach and pool area. The room was beautiful, clean and very large. The Staff was helpful and friendly.
The food was good, but we're not used to spiced tea or the other fruit juices, so we just drank water and Coke.
I do understand how some people have bad trips, not just here, but everywhere. There was one Redheaded Lady that was so rude.
We had about a two hour wait for a room, but just enjoyed the atmosphere and waited until they got to us. Had a wonderful time and will do it again.
I went to the Yalmakan Hotel in '97 and it was worth what we paid so when my fiance and I wanted to go on vacation in May '02 I said we should go there again. I was wrong!!!!
Lots of Fun!
We absolutely had a great time at the Yalmakan! My husband and I brought three of our kids on this vacation, and it was wonderful. There were activities constantly. No time to stop, unless of course, you wanted to. With the kids though, it was great ( ages: 15, 12, & 7). For once, we didn't get the "I'm Bored!" speech. They are doing a lot of updating, and that is only going to make your stay that much more pleasurable. The only thing I wasn't comfortable with would be the elevators. The food was magnificent. The pool bar is always nice, but for the kids, they really thought that was something. If your going alone or especially if your taking the kids, this is definately a place to stay. The people were excellent. LOL, Babyboo
My husband and I traveled to Cancun in late June, 2002. We read all of the negative reviews on the internet and were prepared for anything. We got there late and were welcomed by the coolest staff ever. The rooms were very clean and really pretty. They are old, but...you're in Mexico!!! We went to Las Vegas last year for our honeymoon and stayed at the Bellagio. We know what luxery hotels should be. This was far from it, but it was excellent for the price. The all-inclusive aspect was the best part. The food is GOOD, people! The entertainment staff was very attentive and very sweet. They have activities every night and take you out to a club in a group, if that's what you want to do. We are in our mid-20's, so take that into consideration. All I know is staying in stinky hotels all throughout college and being able to afford something like the yamakan was very nice. We had a great time!!!
My fiancee and I stayed at the Yalmakan for about a week, (May 11th-17th), and were thoroughly UNimpressed. Luckily the accomodations were complimentary because of them overbooking us last year. We still had to pay for airfare and we were ready to come back before our stay was scheduled to be over. Everything the previous respondants said is true...terrible food, dilapidated facilities, unfriendly staff. This vacation has almost caused us to completely write off Cancun.
There are better hotels
Yalmakan is just a very average hotel. Facilities are somewhat run-down, and the staff is somewhat indifferent-kind of like you find here in New Jersey. We have stayed at Crown Paradise and Royal Solaris and find them far, far superior. This hotel is a cheap hotel, perhaps better for kids on a budget. With so many hotels in Cancun, pass this one by.
I was not impressed!
My husband and I just came back from our Honeymoon in Cancun at the Yalmakan, and it was pretty bad. The hotel is old, and it is showing it's age. The phone never worked, the electricity went out for a couple of hours, and the food was horrible. There are 3 places to eat: a cafeteria-like buffet that was only open 2 out of the 5 days we were there, a pool side buffet that noone was ever manning, and therefore, you could get a hot dog bun, but no dog, and finally their restaurant. Wow. That was the worst. It took 2 hours to get a coke from when we sat down, and the food wasn't even edible.
We loved Cancun, and will go back, but not to the Yalmakan.
The hotel is one of the older hotels in Cancun. The rooms were very clean and roomy, but old and in need of work. The staff was great, we had a great time with them, but the food was terrible. We were there for 2 weeks on an all-inclusive trip, but after a few days we gave up and ate out the rest of the trip. We have been to Cancun numerous times and with all the choises in hotels and prices, I would look elsewhere for a more enjoyable trip.
Entertainment Staff Rule
It was my first time out of the states and I felt like I belonged there. Everyone was so friendly. I was very impressed with all the fun activities the entertainment staff made for us all. I didn't want to leave. When I turn 18 I am definitely coming back to the Yalmakan Resort.
THank you Junior,Armando,Fernando,Katie,and Brenda for a wonderful time. I miss you guys.
