Sitting in the Cancun airport bound for snowy New York, wishing that the magic of the last four days could continue forever. Perfect setting, accommodations, service, beach--it doesn't get much better than this. Among the highlights:
1. An upgrade to a beautiful Oceanview Master room, thanks in part to booking through Terry McCabe of Altour, one of Maroma's preferred travel agents.
2. Delicious food, usually one of my gripes when visiting Mexico and the Caribbean. Don't miss the Benedictus Mexicanos for breakfast, the shrimp tacos at lunch, and cheese quesadillas with chicken at Freddie's Bar.
3. Flawless service. Where else can you find a staff member volunteering to run down the beach to fetch ice cream cones when we missed the guy who passes them out each day. I generally don't even like ice cream, but the home made strawberry was something I'll remember for a Lon, long time.
4. One of the best massages I've had in a long time.
Michelle Pfeiffer was apparently there at the same time, but you'd never have known it due to the sense of privacy about the place and the discreet staff. No wonder so many celebrities book this little slice of heaven.
