Costa Mujeres, Cancun
We are finally back in Florida and it is pouring rain like it does every afternoon in June here; so I am using this rainy afternoon to write my blog post from our Cancun trip! We had this vacation planned since February and have been counting down the days since...we took a tequila shot and finally booked it in March!
Where did we stay?
We stayed in Cancun for 5 days at Majestic Elegance Costa Mujeres all-inclusive 5-star resort. I am going to link their website so y'all can take a look and see how beautiful it is! We took a shuttle that we had prearranged from the Cancun airport. This specific hotel was further north and away from the Hotel Zone, so our drive was around 35-45 minutes. The resort is on private property that has security at the front entrance and large gate into the resort property. We never felt unsafe during our stay here.
Once we checked in they gave us each "bracelets" that were our room keys so we never had to worry about bringing a hotel room key or losing it. During checking in they also upgraded and assigned us a butler free of charge. His job was pretty much to be our own personal concierge. He was able to set up/cancel reservations and answer all questions. We communicated with his using the "Whatsapp" app on the resort wifi.
We stayed in the Junior Suite with outdoor jacuzzi. This room had an outdoor lounge area and personal secluded outdoor jacuzzi. The room itself was gorgeous. I will disclose that the resort is not an adults only, however they have an adults only section with rooms, pools etc... that is on one end of the resort. I would recommend if thinking about this for a honeymoon to upgrade to "The Club" which is 18+ to be more private or away from kids. We only saw a few children and all of them were well behaved and we had no issues. We booked with a couple friend so we were looking to having a fun weekend, so this we did not mind.
We loved this resort and the property was so well maintained and kept. Everything was beautiful, the food and drinks were delicious, and they had tons of activities planned each day and night.
Food and Drinks
The resort was all-inclusive so we were able to visit any of the restaurants or bars as many times as we would like. They have 7 restaurants, including 1 adults only restaurant. This was the only one that required a reservation. The resort offers 24 hr room service as well. There are 12 bars in different areas of the hotel, 6 of them being swim-up bars and 4 bars exclusive for Elegance Club customers. They also had a sports bar/club that was open from 6:00 PM to 4:00 AM.
We thought the best food options were the buffets. They have one restaurant dedicated to a lunch buffet, and another one that is open for breakfast and dinner buffet almost everyday. This was nice when going in a group setting because everyone was able to get what they wanted. They had tons of different choices for food at the buffet. Our favorite food however, was the food we ate was during their Mexican themed night. On Saturday night they set out a large buffet of authentic Mexican foods and desserts in their main "Mexican Street." After we ate you were able to enjoy the Mariachi and Mexican show they put on that night. If you go to this resort and they have this event while you are there...IT IS A MUST!
All of the food was delicious and the drinks were even better! My personal favorites are the Pina Coladas, Miami Vice, and Strawberry Margarita. Everything we ate and drank was included in our stay so it was nice not having to worry about what to order for dinner. We had steak, fish, desserts etc... The one thing I will say that I wish this specific resort did not have was a poolside service for food. We were not able to eat lunch or snacks by the pool and they did not have anywhere to go pick it up and bring it with. This was disappointing because who doesn't want to lounge by the pool and eat from nachos in Mexico?!
When you get to the resort they have activities and a schedule of entertainment posted on their website "app" and throughout the hotel lobby kiosks. They had many entertainers, shows, and pool events every day. We were only there for a full 3 days without travel so we spent them mostly at the main pool with swim up bar, the beach and the adults only pool with bar. The resort does have an option to set up excursions outside of what they offer. If you wanted to book anything they have a section in their lobby for excursions, airport transfers etc...
All of the pools have swim up bars in close proximity or have a poolside service for drinks. There is plenty of seating options by the pools and down at the beach. The resort is located on the beach so they permanently have cabanas or beach chairs with umbrellas set up. It is the perfect option if you want to lay out by the sun or stay in the shade. Not one of us got burnt so I am counting that as a win!
I would definitely go back and stay at this resort and would recommend it to anyone looking to visit Cancun! The location, resort and staff were all wonderful! I am linking all of my looks on my Liketoknow.it page and app. Be sure to download the app to shop all my looks and more!
I cannot wait for our next vacation and I am counting down the days! Let me know in the comments or send me a message if you have any questions! I would be happy to help and I recommend to anyone looking to have a fun and laid back trip to visit Majestic Elegance in Costa Mujeres!
