Unbelievable Group Deal

My family has grown so much over the past few years! With relatives getting married, kids being born, new in-laws, even going out to dinner is a huge production! So when BlueBay Grand Esmeralda, in Cancun’s Rivera Maya, announced their group rate of 7 nights from $899.99 (per person) I was thrilled! Going on a dream vacation can include more than the spouse and kids – invite the grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, whomever you can think of!  Whether you’re interested in a destination wedding, a family reunion, or even a group of your closest friends – everyone will thank you for taking them to an amazing tropical location at a luxurious oceanfront resort with all the amenities they could hope for. You will be saving them hundreds (or more) on meals, drinks, entertainment etc. – because it’s already included in the price!

The BlueBay Grand Esmeralda group rate of 7 nights for $899.99 includes everything!!!  There’s roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations, transfers to and from the airport, all meals, all drinks, tips, entertainment and so much more!  There’s even a 1 hour welcome group cocktail party!  This resort has it all! There are large swimming pools, special facilities for children, luxurious rooms, and numerous restaurants to choose from (buffet or a la carte).

My recommendation for you is – if you know there’s going to be group travel in your future and you want your group to have the time of its life, book an all-inclusive group travel package today.

BlueBay Grand Esmeralda

Apple Vacations & BlueBay Grand Esmeralda in Cancun’s Riviera Maya has announced specials available from now through the of the year! We have gotten a lot of questions on the resort. So I asked one of our Sales Managers, Gina West, who was there for a report. Here is her review:

The resort is located just north of Playa del Carmen , so the commute from the Cancun airport is only about 30 minutes which is especially great for short stays.

Each guest room building has it’s own concierge and each building also has an elevator with glass walls that with views of the outdoors. The guest rooms are really very nice and richly appointed with plush bedding (not the hard mattresses that are so typically are found in hotels). All of the guest rooms definitely have the feel of a luxury upscale resort – which surprised me for the price of this resort. For an upgrade, they offer swim out rooms with a large and rather deep (3′ – 4′) common plunge pool that is shared by everyone on the ground floor. These plunge pools do not connect with the resorts main pool. They also offer suites which are two rooms – a living room and a separate master bedroom with a king bed.

The very large main pool runs parallel to the coastline rather than perpendicular to it, which is always more pleasing and dramatic. The pool has a lot of character. They have a children’s area plus exercise bikes in the pool and built in lounging seats in the pool around the perimeter. Very nice for hot summer days!

The white sandy beach is very clean and spacious with ample lounge chairs for those who prefer to sit closer to the ocean. In this case, you can be close to both the pool and the ocean!

The specialty a la carte restaurants were completely renovated about 2 – 3 years ago and I was very impressed with them. The main buffet restaurant is located by the pool with great views of the ocean. It’s very spacious and the food was good.

Their spa is large with lots of open air areas and a water circuit program. At the time that it opened, I remember thinking it was larger than most spas and just really different since it was so open.

The theater area was okay. The hotel also have a few specialty shops for guests. The lobby is nice. It’s probably the highest point in the resort. One thing to point out at the resort is that there is a distance between the lobby, spa, theater and shops and the guest rooms. You have to walk over a long boardwalk that was built over the mangroves to get there. They do have shuttles available, but mostly people walked.

For the selling points of this hotel, it is definitely worth it!
