There are many, many, many resorts in Cancun. Go on the travel review websites, and you'll see the same pattern everywhere: some people had great experiences, some people had awful times, the rooms were great, the rooms were musty, and so on. Interchangeable.

Hence all the Cancun experiences seem to bleed into one long tale of basting gringos. Am I going to give you that?

Yes and no. For one thing, this resort is astonishing. We go there because it has a tennis academy, which my wife loves. I like the beach. It's huge. Modern. Very well-run.

The entertainment . . . is amusing. For various reasons. The food is generally edible. The drinks are included.

I've combined the last two visits in two pages. Hope you enjoy a trip to a faraway fantasy place.
