Mayan Riviera - Anna NDecember 2, 2013
Vacation was fabulous! The Iberostar was gorgeous. We were on the Quetzal side – (we found no discernable difference between the 2 sides) and the Junior Suite on the ocean was wonderful. For the money spent – this is a wonderful vacation. We got to eat at all five of the restaurants (the Japanese and Steak restaurants were the best).3 with reservations, 2 on the waiting list. The 2 reps at the Olympus desk were extremely pleasant and helpful. We did a day tour of Tulum and Xel Ha, the Mayan Adventure and Dolphin swim with Delphinus (Joel – Olympus Rep suggestion, and it was great. More
time spent actually swimming with the Dolphins versus the other places). The Mayan Adventure was really neat – but I can see how small kids would be tricky, as the first part of the trip is a 1 mile swim. My kids were tired!
Tulum was beautiful and wonderful to see – but man was it hot! Xel Ha in 1/2 day was not quite enough time – I could see how a full day there would have been better, as there is a lot of exploring you could do. Its a very beautiful place and we sort of had to hurry through it. We did not go to Xcaret. Joel described Xel Ha as a natural site, where-as Xcaret is a man made (although wonderful) spot. I am glad we went with Xel Ha. And am also glad we did not book any other activities during our 8 days, because it is so wonderful just to hang out at the resort, either beach or pool side. The kids had loads of fun – but did not ever participate in the kids club. Most of their activity revolved around getting Pina Colada smoothies and ice cream cones from the pool bar 🙂
I appreciate your time and your services. I will absolutely be in touch with you when we go to book our next vacation.
