Travel Blogs from Cancun
V A C A T I O N P L A N N I N G I spent a whole year comparing prices, locations & reviews. By the time it was actually time to go I felt like I already knew the place inside out. Beautful scenery and different cultures are two very important things that I like to see in a vacation destination. I don't like to drive or fly thousands of miles to …
... thed dollars into pesos first and then into Quetzales. After that she dropped me at the Maya museum, which was to be one of the highlights so far. The whole place is beautifully laid out and the air conditioning keeps all its visitors, as well as the Mayan artefacts, at just the right temperature. They have some magnificent pieces from all over what was the Mayan kingdom and some real ruins (San Miguelito) on the premises too.

... the baby tiger incident we got talking to the English couple on another table, they were on their last night in Central America and wanted to head to out to salsa, well she did, I think he was looking for companions to stay off the d floor with. They invited us along so we went. We got there about 10pm, they told us it was opening in an hour. So we went to the closest bar for a drink. As it happens it was a Karaoke bar. After going back to ...
... to meet back at the hotel at 3:30pm to change, drop off the carts and head to the beach. At the beach some of just relaxed on the sand, others went for a swim and the rest played volleyball. It was nice to chill and talk about the day. We left at 6pm to go back to Cancun where a few of us picked up food and went to a friends house for the evening. I was exhausted by the end of the day but we all enjoyed it so much. We gave a good witness on the island - ...
Today was all about relaxing and catching up on sleep. A day of pure laziness and relaxation.
I did manage to take a walk early enough in the morning to discover that the winds were still high and the red flags were up which means that it is too dangerous to swim in the ocean with the undertow.
Surprisingly, the water was cooler than I imagined but putting my feet in these Mexico waters is still far warmer than any ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sea Adventure Resort & Waterpark Cancun
Absolute horrible place, we had a disagreement over some dubious charges on our phone bill and they would not let us leave until I gave them my cell phone as ransom. I paid for 3 months cell phone service before I was able to get my phone back. We paid for a double room and only received one bed. When we complained we were informed that the 2 bed rooms were first come first serve. After talking to some other guests they mentioned that they bribed their way into a better room with a 20$ bill. So basically they sold our room out from under us. Many bugs in the room, poor furnishing, only 1 bar open at a time, my list of complaints goes on and on. Guest services are a joke, poor food, and a bad location to boot. Very far away from anything of interest in the resort district we had to spend large amounts of money paying for cab rides as the bus passes through very rough areas before getting to the other tourist areas. AFter all of our problems we only managed to receive a 1 day credit for one person for a day which we didn't use anyway.(airline delay) This company has no excuse to be in business whatsoever. If you have any other questions feel free to email me and I will explain more about my stay. Next time I go to cancun I will stay at the Grand Oasis, for about the same money as the Horrible Blue Bay Club.
Great for all ages
We were pleasantly suprised after reading some of the reviews. The hotel was clean, staff very friendly and food a variety. We enjoyed being off the beaten path but always having a taxi nearby to come and go. The beach was small and enclosed by sandblocks but the pool was nice and ample in size. Our 11 year old enjoyed the non alcoholic drinks and swim up bar the best. Overall, the trip was fun and the Blue Bay Club very accomadating.
Ive just returned from a 2 week vacation at the Blue Bay Hotel. Having read the previous comments, before I departed, I was obviously not too sure what to expect. I can of course now confirm that the Blue Bay Hotel is very good. The food was of a good standard (Mexican/English/
Don't be guided by other peoples negative reviews
Having read previous negative reviews about the hotel, it was with some trepidation that we went to the hotel for our holiday. We had an excellent time. The hotel was immaculate, the staff were the most friendly, polite people that it has been our pleasure to meet, the food was plentiful and well presented, although thankfully, not fast food (ie. burgers and fries). Yes there was seaweed on the beach and sandbags, but with the area having just felt the wrath of Isadora, what else would you expect. A problem that we encountered (not of the hotels liability) was speedily rectified without any pressure from ourselves. We would recommend this hotel to anybody and would happily return again.
The best thing in my life
I was in this hotel 2 years ago, but i can tell that it's better than the others in Cancun. The staff is great, cheearful and the happiest in the entire wolrd...I just love it! it was wonderful and I hope to be there again because i made great friends
We returned form our 14 day vacation to Mexico last week and I can honestly say the Blue Bay Club us the worst '4 star' hotel - more appropriatley should be rated as a 2 star and would be in the UK.
Blue Bay Club a wonderful destination!
We recently completed a trip to Blue Bay Club and found it thoroughly satisfactory. The service was supurb, the entertainment excellent, and the rooms were very nice and all with a/c. I thought the drinks were nice sized and mixed very well. They would mix anything you asked. The beach is not huge, but it was clean and well taken care of. It smelled like a beach. The pipes refered to in previous comments are erosion barriers, to prevent the loss of sand from the beach. They had them as out of site as possible, but they did not interfere with our enjoyment of the beach and view! The food was good, and there was always plenty of it. I would highly recommend Blue Bay Club. It is north of the hotel zone and we found it quieter and more relaxing.
this was are first trip to cancun,if you are looking for blue water this is not the place.
this is more of a family hotel nice rooms,halfway decent food and small weak drinks.
now the blue bay gettaway is a lot nicer still no waves but a bigger beach 2 pools lots of food but no place for kids its all adult.
to get to waves go south of the sunset hotel
checked into room with no A/C, no electric, no safe for valuables. fought to get changed to new room. The beach was dirty and stunk like sewage.!!!!! The beach (if you want to call it a beach) had sand bags all over along with sea weed and pipes were run along the beach with drained something that smelled which looked like it was from the hotel ??? The hotel is not close to any activities. Tour representatives were not helpful.
Had a 3 night trip in which only 1 day we were able to do something due to being stuck at the hotel. If you don't mind wasting your money this is the place to go.
Blue Bay Club and Marina
Hotel was nice, pool area was nice, room was nice. Food was ok. Beach was not so nice...
no waves what so ever, made sailing sports difficult. Water was green, seaweed, rocks
pipes along the shore.
Pool side acitivies a little boring...water aerobics, dancing lesson (same dance
every day), Spanish lessons and bingo.
Drinks served in really small glasses, a little irritating.
