Return to Hacienda Tres Rios
Third time's a charm and it was.
Bought the HTR 4 night package, eschewing the rental car. Heck, who wants to leave this resort??We prearranged USA Transfers and they rescheduled for us at a moment's notice via email when we didn't get our first flgiht to Cancun. HTR moved our reservation to arrive the next day and kept all 4 nights intact.
The all-inclusive program is slightly different from last time we stayed. Still great cuisine--outdoor grill and pizza oven, Mexican, Asian Fusion and Italian specialty restaurants in addition to the dinner buffet (also open for lunch and breakfast where I enjoyed eggs benedict and champagne each morning...
Our first surprise was the room upgrade we never requested (just a king bed). Our two room suite had 2 full baths, 2 sofa beds and a dining setup. 2 TVs WIFI and a rooftop jacuzzi reachable by spiral staircase off a very large terrace. Not too shabby!!!
Weather was superb and we enjoyed lounging at the pools on padded chaise lounges, poolside service for food and beverage. 24/7 all-inclusive is hard to take for more than 4 days. I'm working on getting off those pounds and eating home-cooked food. I could have walked and biked all over the expansive acreage--kayaked on the rivers or snorkeled the cenotes, but I was too busy being fed and watered.
This is a great all-inclusive. Tipping is included but we always add a bit more for each service from our friendly waiter, Noel, to the room service guys who drag that ice bucket to the suite so often and our housekeeper who cleans top to bottom all that marble and all those towels.
Hasta La Vista, Baby!!!
