Make sure to do ample research before you book your holiday destination. Don’t rely on their website or pictures. We thought we would be at the far end of hotel strip in Cancun. We are at a little quiet resort on Pok-Ta-Pok Ave which is roughly a 20 minute taxi. This picture is at the Westin. Wish I were there. But in defense of our little resort…
The room is nice. Pool is clean. Everything is very clean. The staff is friendly. And the F&B prices very reasonable. Coral Mar is perfect for a quiet get away. It all depends on what you are looking for. Each night at Coral Mar, the guest gather around the bar for happy hour 2 times a day and share good times with each other. You may not find these same pleasantries at the Westin. It just depends on what you are looking for and what makes you happy.
Personally, we would have enjoyed the Westin more, but the camaraderie with the staff and tourist at Coral Mar were not to be taken lightly. Say hi to Silver at the restaurant and bar during daytime hours and to Eduardo during the evening hours.
