I have just one word for this hotel. GO. The Grand Velas, a long half-hour van ride from the Cancun airport (longer if your van stops at two other resorts on the way, both of which require driving for several miles down a narrow road off of the main highway). After two hours in the customs line at the airport, we were hungry and grumpy by the time we arrived. Our displeasure quickly evaporated, however, when we entered our peaceful and incredibly beautiful resort. Our rooms were in the “jungle wing” of the resort, which was a quick van ride from the “beach wing”. We never waited more than 30 sec0nds for a ride, and we loved how peaceful our area was.
There were many connected, gorgeous pools in our jungle complex. These were very peaceful and Zen-like.
When we wanted more activity, we would head for the beach side of the resort. It wasn’t too shabby, either.
Ok , I am having a terrible time making this look like I want it to, so I am going to post this one and follow with a Part II. Be patient with me- I’m new at this.
