Riviera Maya FAM Review

secrets_silversandsOur new brand Florida sales rep, Everton, escorted his first FAM trip to Riviera Maya. Here is the report to see what he thought on his first Apple Vacations’ FAM trip and his first look at some Riviera Maya resorts.

Hola, como estas? From beautiful Cancun, Mexico. I had the pleasure to escort a FAM from Baltimore this week. Upon arrival at the Cancun airport, I found my luggage quickly then walked outside to find the flowered shirts! Once the rest of my group arrived, we were immediately shown to our bus, where there was cold bottled water and cool towels waiting.  It was awesome!

Here are my impressions of the first few hotels we visited:

Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun – This property was amazing. It was my first time here but I could tell this would be one of my favorites! They have an air-conditioned lobby and lobby bar. This is an adults-only (18+) resort, which has 8 restaurants and 8 bars.  No wristbands, no restrictions on dining and no reservations are required! The resort has beautiful pools! The wonderful ocean view Jacuzzi had a definite “wow-effect” on me!  Top shelf liquor and American beer are included and are standard which is great for American clients.  Non-stop transfers are included when booking this resort with Apple Vacations!

Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa – This was a gorgeous property and just turned a year old!  They have an open-air lobby with a beautiful lobby bar overlooking the Mangroves!  This resort has 486 octagonal-shaped rooms.  They also have ground-floor swim-out suites, 6 bars and 9 restaurants. The main buffet has Mexican, Asian and Italian stations. The Bordeaux is an amazing adults-only restaurant.  24- hour room service is also available.  The Explorers Club is a great place for kids and they offer pagers for the parents when they leave their children. The beach at this hotel is awesome and it includes great diving and snorkeling! There is an outside bar called Barracuda, which features swings at the bar! How fun!

Tune in tomorrow for more reviews!
