Live from Le Blanc

Good afternoon,

DH and will be arriving at Le Blanc in under 2 hours! We had been scheduled to arrive earlier but last minute flight changes, we flew into CZM instead of CUN. About to board Ferry to PDC.

We are so excited about celebrating our 10 year anniversary. We had been scheduled for Le Blanc back in April but changed at the last minute to Royal in Cancun for a swim up room. We regretted it every minute so we can't wait!

I will try and update at least once a day and answer any questions :)

Well we arrived! Greeted by name, cold glass of cocunut milk, and cool scented towel.

Check-In:

Passports and credit card requested.

It appeared room number was already assigned as all our cards and info were preprinted.

Room not ready, inquired about upgrade - only option was to a lower floor smoking room - declined.

Handed off to guest services, thorough review of credits (knew it all already) which lead into "we can offer you $200 extra spa to hear our marketing presentation". We quickly stated no thank you and were quickly shuffled Off to lunch.

Lunch @ Interntional -

Seating outside, slightly overcast. Resort is quiet but numerous people around.

Enjoyed lunch of chips, gauc, & taquitos with a margarita.

Service so far is on par with expectations.

Terri

We decided we will inquirer about smoking room upgrade afterall.

That's all for now.

Enjoyed a little time by the pool this afternoon, Fanny greeted us and made sure we had every thing we needed. Not many people around.

Weather was overcast, breezy and drizzles at times.

Hotel is at 50% occupancy. So lack of upgraded room is a bit strange. Front desk just kept saving "I will speak with my supervisor" "maybe tomorrow". Keep in mind we were more than willing to pay for upgrade.

Service has been great many people always asking if you need anything.

Dinner - Asian

We arrived at 645 pm and Only persons in the restaurant by 730 it was getting busy. Dinner took just under 2 hours without a dessert course.

Me: sushi starter - 3 out of 5

Salad - 5 out of 5

Tuna with Rice - 4 out of 5

Dh: sushi starter

Miso Soup - 5 out of 5

Mixed Stir Fry w/ thai rice- 4.5 out of 5

Back to room to check in at home via FaceTime. Internet is working great all of resort -Huge Plus.

Ordered dessert via room service - Creme Brûlée - AWESOME!

Stay tuned....

Thanks for the updates!

The Asian is my least favorite at LB. I really love the lunch buffet - love picking out all the fresh seafood and having them grill it for me. I also really like the cheeseburgers with quacamole by the pool! yummmmm....only a few more weeks for us!
