We arrived Wednesday for a short 5-night stay here. On Wednesday the Cancun airport was incredibly empty. It took 30 minutes from the time we left the plane until we were outside with Cancun Transfers. Arrived at the Grand and, received a cool towel, were told to go to the bar and have a drink while they determined if our room was ready. After the drink we were driven down to the concierge at the oceanfront building (#70) . After being given a glass of sparkling wine we were taken to our room on the third floor. Julio came shortly after for the check-in process. Sat at the pool for a bit. For dinner they had the International Buffet and "Stars under the Stars" outside by the pool.
Yesterday was beautiful weather, 28 degrees C and sunny. We spent until 2PM on the beach then moved up to the pool area. Even at 2PM there were lots of seats available, particularly the ones in the water. It was great. Last night we went to the Japanese restaurant and sat at the teppanyaki table. Both my wife and I thought the food was really good.
This morning, another beautiful sunrise. Weather is suppose to be sunny for the next two days then rain on Sunday but who knows.
As we're only here a short time I'll try and check in here from time to time. I'm certainly no expert on this place and others know far more than I do but if you have any questions I'll try to answer.
