Mexico has always been a destination I have always wanted to experience so when I was invited to go with Funway holidays and AM Resorts I was absolutely delighted!
For those of you that are unfamiliar with this hotel brand there is something for everyone and I was completely blown away with the standard of accommodation and service within the hotels. The AM resorts are made up of 6 luxury resort brands all of which have their own sandy beaches, Elegant accommodation, World Class Spas, Gourmet Dining and Unlimited Top-shelf Spirits. The Ultra luxurious ZoetryWellness & Spa resorts; Adults only Secrets, Exciting Breathless Resorts, Luxurious Dreams, Youthful Now or The Fulfilled Sunscape.
For the first two nights we spent in Playa Mujeres just north of Cancun, this resort is a far cry from the spring break crowd. Its Bordered on one side by the Mexican Caribbean and the other by a wetlands wildlife preserve. At the Secrets Playa Mujeres this is one of the adult only concepts with 424 luxuriously equipped spacious suites with a private balcony or terrace. 24 hour room and concierge service, daily maid service endless daytime activities and live nightly entertainment, Oceanfront infinity pool. In addition those staying at the Secrets Playa Mujeres include full access to Dreams Playa Mujeres which is situated next door. Between both hotels there are 19 restaurants 11 which are speciality restaurants and 21 bars, meaning there is plenty of variety for all food lovers. I particularly enjoyed a ‘mamosa’ which is a Mexican buck’s fizz with my breakfast.
The dreams brand is family friendly but for those families that still enjoy luxury. The facilities within the dreams Playa Mujeres were brilliant! It had a teenager centre that was like a teenager’s paradise! It had Xbox’ DJ Lessons, Riffle Shooting, Archery, Basketball, and much more! The dreams also had a lazy river and waterslides so was suitable for the little ones too! Both Resorts have buggy centres so you can get picked up without having to walk anywhere if you don’t wish.
Zoetry Villa Rolandi Isla Mujeres – Meaning ‘In The Art Of Life’ for those of you that prefer a small and friendly and boutique style this hotel is for you, with just 35 rooms with ocean views all round there is no place more relaxing than this hotel. What a better way to start your holiday with a 25 Minute private yacht transfer glancing and taking in the incredible views before you arrive to the hotel. This is the best place to experience the sunrise and sunset with clear views over to Cancun. The Zoetry Villa Rolandi also offers a romantic sunset private Yacht twice a week so its definitely perfect for couples or honeymooners!
We then visited Cancun for the day. With the famous Coco Bongos on your doorstep and bars open until sunrise Cancun has a thriving nightlife. It does also offer the most beautiful beaches. Reflect Cancun if you like the hustle and bustle this hotel is situated on the tip of Cancun enjoy the views of the stunning surroundings of the Carribbean sea. This hotel has 395 rooms all which have a partial or full sea view.
We then moved to the Secrets Akumal which is located in Riviera Maya. Riviera Maya is one of the best destinationsalong the coast for diving and snorkelling, the crystal clear waters will allow you to get up close and personal with some of the most fascinating tropical fishes. This is the worldssecond largest barrier reef which lies less than a mile offshore. The hotel its self is set in a jungle atmosphere and its got that tranquil atmosphere that makes you feel instantly relaxed.
A lot of people have asked me if there is anything to do other than lying round the pool or on the Beach whilst holidaying in Mexico and the answer is definitely yes. There is so much history and culture and lots of excursions to break up your days. We Visited the Tulum Ruins which is just south of Playa Del Carmen. These old stone structures that make up this archaeological site are surrounded by leaning palm trees, cactus flowers and a population of iguanas! There is also a secret beach just below the ruins if you need to refresh and cool down!
Breathless Riviera Cancun was probably my favourite hotel that we visited. Its best described as vibrant luxury with Ultra contemporary suites. I even had a Jacuzzi on my balcony which was beautiful to relax in after a long day and watch the sunset. Breathless is an adult only concept with a classy Ibiza vibe. There is a live DJ in the lobby and also around the Freestyle pool which is where the pool party’s are held. The Middle Pool is the Energy pool where you will find the entertainment team with a selection of daytime entertainment games. The end pool is the Xhale club pool which only Xhaleguests are allowed in and this is a chilled vibe with cabanas to soak up the sun. I would definitely recommend this hotel for couples and friends.
Everytime we checked in we were welcomed by the phrase ‘Welcome Home’ and I really did feel like I was at home with the exceptional service and the extra touches all the staff went to, making our trip that extra bit special.
With all the hotels you will find Unlimited Luxury this means there are no reservations for dining, no all Inclusive wristbands, Unlimited international and domestic top-shelf spirits, unlimited natural fruit juices and soft drinks, pool & beach waiter service, daily maid Service, 24 hour Room and Concierge service. They are just endless!
Whether you’re thinking about going to Mexico for a special occasion, an unforgettable holiday or just a chilled break you will definitely not be dissapointed with these hotels.
