13/366 Memories of Mexico

Hubby and I were discussing over dinner where we might go this year on holiday.  Where ever we go the cost will have to come from savings – my redundancy pay – unless I can find a job. We were soon reminiscing about our favourites and realised it’s 3 years this weekend that we went to Mexico.

We’ve been very fortunate over the past few years and have been to the Caribbean, Jamaica, Barbados and done a few cruises – albeit on the Ocean Village so not ‘Posh’. Our favourite by miles was Cancun in Mexico. I had a good year in work and completed quite a bit of overtime which saw our holiday pot expand quite nicely.
After lots of research of hotels we decided on the Royal Cancun. This is a 5* All Inclusive hotel along the Quintana Roo. This is a strip of land that has the ocean on one side and the lagoon on the other. Reviews of the hotel were good and we booked an upgraded room called a Royal Junior Suite.  The holiday was all we expected and more, service, food, drink and the rooms exceed expectations.
the only fly in the ointment was that on arrival we were given the wrong type of room and had to be moved up a couple of floors to be able to take advantage of the added luxury we had paid for. After the move we settled by the pool and relaxed. When we went back to our room later in the afternoon we had a call from the Concierge asking if we back in the room for a while, I asked why and they said they had a surprise for us. About 10 minutes later a knock on the door. A room service attendant with a bottle of bubbly compliments of First Choice as an apology for their cock-up with the room and some chocolate covered strawberries from the hotel management. They looked too good eat!
So my piccie for today is a lovely reminder of our amazing holiday 3 years ago.
