Riu’s most recent $12 million dollar renovation in the latter part of 2016 has brought about many changes to their Cancun signature resort (Riu Palace Las Americas)–some guests will like them, some will not.  Here is a list of what Riu has done with their $12 million: Continue reading

Dreams Playa Mujeres Changes Resort Rules

Since I will be going to this resort in Feb. I have been following them on social media and learned that the resort will now be allowing everyone to use the beachfront infinity pool (which had been adults-only); they are also thinking of allowing everyone to use the lazy river (which I believe would have been a policing nightmare) so hold off on that upgrade if that’s the only reason you are feeling the need to upgrade–it may not be necessary.

Next Resort Stop–Dreams Playa Mujeres

While I have done an extensive amount of travel in 2016, I admit with chagrin that none of it has been to Cancun.  However, this is going to change in 2017.  I’ve decided to kick my resort visits into high gear by visiting Dreams Playa Mujeres and Riu Cancun in February 2017.  (Dreams resort is for myself, while Riu Cancun will be for my adult son who will be traveling with myself and my husband).  Nothing like trying to make everyone happy on vacation.  Can’t wait–so excited to be visiting this new Dreams resort!  Especially anticipating the lazy river (only for Preferred Club upgraded guests) as well as the all-ages waterpark!  (That should be a hoot!)  Since Dreams Playa Mujeres’ pools are all heated, there should be no problem taking full advantage of all water-related amenities.  There are supposed to be new photos being posted of the resort’s progress within the next few days; those of you who have FB should visit the Dreams Playa Mujeres page to get the latest pics.  Although I will try to post some of them when they come out, sometimes resorts get a little huffy about posting their new resort progress pics–I don’t know what the big deal is, it’s free advertising.  Stay tuned!
