For the past few years, Cancun has been one of my favorite destinations to visit. Although I can think of a variety of different places that I have visited (or dream of visiting) that are beautiful and rich in history, I can’t help but appreciate how convenient Cancun is from Nova Scotia.
With periodic direct flights or quick layovers in Toronto/Montreal, Cancun can be reached in just a few short hours …if all goes to plan. Personally, I don’t always have the availability to take week long trips … but in reality rest and relaxation is still needed. If you are anything like me and you solely require a few days to recharge, then Cancun is for you!
I’ve been to Cancun prior to this trip and stayed at an all-inclusive hotel. Although I have only positive things to say about my previous accommodation, when booking this trip I didn’t want to take any chances. Boutique hotels are often so special and one of a kind resorts can be just that, however, booking accommodation with a trust brand is stress free.
I’ve had the opportunity to stay at previous Ritz-Carlton‘s throughout my life, including their amazing location in Orlando. When booking with a reputable brand I always know what to expect …. luxury, consistency and breath taking landscape. The moment I arrived at The Ritz-Carlton Cancun , I knew once again this was all to be true.
After dropping off our bags at our spacious room, we decided to have a quick coffee and take in the view in front of us. Often when on sun holidays, I spend the majority of the time outside near the water. I am trying to be more mindful on my most recent holidays to take a few moments daily to enjoy the room, the available amenities and the picturesque views.
Following some short lived down time, it was time to hit the ground running. As much as the room was lush, there was a large pool, a tiki bar and a sprawling beach that was calling our names.
Personally, I feel the food and drink options offered at a resort are as important as anything else. The Ritz-Carlton Cancun is similar to a small city. There are so many different restaurants and bars on property that even those with the most restricted diets would have plenty of options to choose from. As Paul and I remained outside for the majority of the trip, we often grabbed drinks poolside at the Tiki Bar and authentic Mexican food at The Caribe Bar and Grill. My favorite meal from our stay was the chicken tacos al pastor ….. washed down with a margarita of course!
Paul and I often spent the mornings during our stay by the pool and then following lunch at The Caribe Bar and Grill we would make our way to the beach. The beach at The Ritz-Carlton Cancun is sprawling and filled with the most comfortable day beds for their guests. One of the best features of their beach set up is the branded blue flags. These flags are used for immediate food and beverage service. Let’s just say our flag was flying high all day.
After long days at the beach (often dark when we would walk back to our room), Paul and I would enjoy a beverage at the D-lounge. With live music and a warm breeze, it was always hard to wrap things up and call it a night ….. as that meant our time at The Ritz-Carlton Cancun was coming to an end.
Thank you to the entire team at The Ritz-Carlton Cancun for such wonderful hospitality!
