Just booked Trip #2

Came down last year with wife, now bringing a 14 and 11 year along. Got a direct flight out of O'hare and will be staying at Mayan Palace mid March. Thanks for all the information on this board, very helpful. 5th year in a row heading to Mexico. 2 Cozumel, 1 Mazatlan, and now here for the second year. You guys are right, this place is by far the better vacation spot for us.

Marina....using our timeshare points. A little apprehensive about the place since we are RCI people.

You will like the MP marina, nice little resort with 2 pools & nice beach, getting a little dated but still nice we stayed there 10 yrs. The main building faces the street as you enter, we always request a pool facing room in this building up as high as possible, as the rooms are a little larger & have proper balconies you can sit out on with chairs. He building down the side has better pool/ocean views but no balcony, just sliding doors, you have to sit in the room. Food in the MP marina is very good & reasonably priced as they have to compete with the marina across the road (where we stay now)

With age of your kids I would try to spin the front desk a story about looking for a place to stay the following Nov & see if you can capture a day pass to the Grand Mayan in NV the kids would love it, 7 pools, 2 wave pools with beaches, lazy river etc. Great day if you can spin it, $12 taxi ride out there. Just DON't get roped into a presentation.

congrats, señor, don`t forget to take advantage of the buffet in Bakal restaurant in the hotel, they have also great room service, and the buffet starts at 2x1 190 pesos and 2 people will eat, also the beach party at the resort on tuesday, excellent, and also perfect spot to pick a fishing charters and head to get some tunas...
