The 5 star, (actually 5.4 stars) resort we stayed at is called Dreams Riviera Resort & Spa, 20 mins taxi ride from Cancun airport. We were given warm towels and champagne on arrival and from the moment we got there I thought it was wonderful. I've never stayed in such a resort before, nor had the chance to have an all-inclusive holiday.
I've heard tales before about all inclusive holidays where the food is not great, and you have limited times to go eat, etc, but we found the complete opposite at this resort.
The food at the 7 restaurants, for all the meals, were brilliant. We couldn't fault the food, the drinks, the room, or the service. The Mexican people at the resort were friendly and smiling and always made sure you were well looked after.
The sun shone and we swam and ate and drank and for 7 days and nights I had my fiance all to myself and it was bliss. I just wish it had been for longer.
Dinner for two
