Safety Reminder: Don't forget the sunscreen!
You and your friends have decided that you’re finally going to do the whole Spring Break thing. You might still be in school and actually on Spring Break, or you might have just decided that you’ve earned a treat after years of slugging it out in the real world with long hours and no sunshine.
Whatever the case may be, you’re looking to take full advantage of that Spring Break lifestyle, and there’s only one place you want to go Cancun.
You want to enjoy the white beaches, the sunshine, and the fruity drinks. You want to get equal parts party and relaxation, and you want to do it in a place famous for both. Who wouldn’t? It may be the cliché choice, but guess what? There’s a reason so many people choose to vacation in Cancun. In fact, there are lots of reasons.
Planning a Visit to Villa Del Palmer Cancun Resort
One of those reasons is its killer resorts.
That’s what you want. You want to vacation in Cancun at a luxury resort that makes you feel like sun-kissed royalty. Luckily, that’s pretty easy to do thanks to the countless resorts with a list of amenities a mile long.
Villa del Palmer Cancun is high on the list of best resorts in Cancun, and it’s worth taking a look at as you research your possible accommodations. It has packages available for lots of different size groups, price ranges, and interests. It has something for everyone, and you and your friends can have an amazing time there.
Here is a breakdown of everything Villa del Palmer Cancun has to offer you and your friends as you prepare to live it up in paradise.
Go All In - or Not
All-inclusive resorts are amazing, but they aren’t for everyone, and they aren’t for every budget. Villa del Palmer Cancun gives you the option of choosing between the all-inclusive package and the room only package.
All-inclusive includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner - as well as gourmet snacks, and alcoholic beverages. There are a few restrictions to the food and drink inclusions. Lobster, lamb, and angus beef are not included in the package as well as several specific brands of tequila, scotch, and bourbon.
You will also get to enjoy 24-hour room service, a mini bar in your room, poolside day beds, and non-motorized water sports activities. You get to eat, drink, and stay entertained without having to worry about additional fees.
If you’re on the fence about going all-inclusive or not, it’s probably helpful to consider the cost of alcohol. If you and your friends are going specifically to do some imbibing, it’s probably worth its weight in tequila to get the all-inclusive package.
Along the same lines, you might want to consider your dining experience expectations. Fine dining is wonderful, and having meals included can be a real lifesaver, but only if you’ll make the most of them.
Maybe you’d rather wander around Cancun and get your meals from more authentic locales. Maybe you and your friends are more interested in eating take-out down by the waves than you are in sitting in a gourmet restaurant with table linens and china.
This is where pricing things out like food and alcohol can really help make your decision for you. Choose a package based not only on your budget, but also on the kind of trip you want to have. Do you want to be adventurous and wander off the resort to catch your fun, or would you just prefer to have your fun served up poolside on a silver platter?
There’s no wrong answer. Either option is amazing, but make sure you choose the package that best matches that answer. Otherwise, you aren’t being economical, and didn’t you learn how important that was in school?
Enjoy Luxury Accommodations
The accommodations at Villa del Palmer Cancun are so swanky that the only mark against them is that you can’t stay there forever. You can choose from suites and residences. The Deluxe room and the one and two bedroom suites offer you all the classic hotel room creature comforts with a few bonuses.
You can relax in an air-conditioned room with views of the gardens, the pool, or the ocean. Plus, you get a balcony and your very own hammock to catch a quick nap on as you listen to the roar of the waves.
The suites and residences also offer you kitchens and living room space. They’re called a home away from home, but they might be nicer than your place. With granite counter tops, mahogany furniture, and stainless steel appliances you’ll feel less like you’re at a hotel and more like you’re the guest of a celebrity on a private island.
No matter what level of accommodations you and your friends choose you don’t have to worry that you’re getting the cheap option. Some rooms are more affordable than others, but they’re all luxurious and elegant. You can spread out and enjoy your stay without feeling cramped or crowded.
Think of all the other times that you have traveled with a group and simply had to make do when it came to accommodations. Maybe you were the one that got stuck on the pullout cot, or maybe you always had to share the double bed with someone else.
For some vacations those kinds of arrangements are okay, but they’re not okay in paradise. Your room is not just the place you go to sleep in at night. Your room is a part of the experience.
The residential loft options take that experience literally to the next level. The available floor plans feature 2 levels of rooms, floor to ceiling windows, and full kitchens. When you set foot in one you’ll feel like you have your own private villa. Relax in your own giant whirlpool tub, or take a soak in the steam room. The lofts sleep 4 to 8 people depending on the number of rooms, so they’re great options for group trips.
Take Your Choice of Pools
Yes, of course there’s the beach, and you will totally hit up those sandy shores, but the pools at Villa del Palmer Cancun are paradise. With 5 separate pools to choose from you can find the perfect place to relax and catch some sunrays.
Villa del Palmer features a main swimming pool, a waterfall bridge pool, a kid’s pool, an adults-only pool, and a VIP pool. You’ll probably get the most use out of the main pool. It’s lined with lounge chairs, shaded by mighty palm trees, and a good drink is already on its way to you.
You and your friends can lounge by the pool, work on your tans, and feel like movie stars. You’ll go ahead and skip the kids pool, but the waterfall bridge pool offers fun for all ages, and you’ll definitely have to pose on the bridge for an Instagram worthy photo.
If you’re headed to Cancun to capture that Spring Break experience you missed in college you just might be earning enough to snag yourself a spot at the VIP pool. You’ll enjoy your very own cabana and a tranquil view of the ocean. Turns out adult-ing actually has some perks!
But don’t worry. Even if that VIP pool is not within your reach, you’ll still be treated like a VIP everywhere you go on the resort. The Villa del Palmer has a great reputation for service, and it shows in everything they do.
Choose From Tons of Activities
You may be coming to Cancun to get your Spring Break on, but after a few days of sunning by the pool and sipping on margaritas, you just might want to get up and see what else the resort has to offer.
The list is pretty long. You can take dance lessons, or gourmet cooking classes. You can kayak down at the beach, or join in a game of volleyball. You can play bingo, and bocce ball, or brush up on your Spanish.
Ever wanted to go snorkeling? Cancun, with its crystal clear waters is the perfect place to give it a try. You’ll get to see amazing wildlife and get an unforgettable experience.
Most of the activities are free to guests, but some include a nominal fee. Since you’re probably saving money on food and drinks, you should make it a goal to pay for at least one extra activity to make sure you are using the resort to its full potential.
You’ll have every opportunity to take part in activities that will take your vacation from ordinary to exceptional. Lounging is amazing, but your vacation spot has to have more than just sunshine and a drink with an umbrella in it.
Relax at the Spa
The use of the spa is open to all guests at an additional charge, and its services include facials, massages, body treatments, and Mayan rituals. Relax in 1 of 9 treatment cabins with views of the ocean, or the cold plunge pool. Enjoy a hot stone massage, or a deep tissue massage, a sit in the steam room, or a soak in a warm Jacuzzi. In fact, you can do all of that and more.
Villa del Palmer spa takes its inspiration from Mayan culture, and it aims to help you feel rejuvenated and healed from ancient traditions. They focus on tranquility, inner peace, and age-old wisdom. These ancient methods combined with new age ones like detoxifying wraps help give you a well-rounded spa experience.
Villa del Palmer is about relaxing. Make no mistake, you can come there to party, and you will party, but you’ll also leave feeling invigorated. You might not even be a spa person per say, but you can’t visit the resort without indulging in at least one service.
Choose from package options like the Vila Spa Experience, which gives you 6 80-minute massages or the My Spa Package, which lets you choose a facial, a massage, and a body wrap.
They list all their spa prices on their website, and you can expect to pay anywhere from $100 - $300 for the majority of their spa treatments. Be sure to take a look at this list, and be sure to budget in at least one activity. You won’t regret it.
Taste the Fine Dining
If you choose the all-inclusive package you’ll have several incredible restaurants at your disposal plus a snack bar and a deli that serves Starbucks coffee. The restaurants serve everything from Italian cuisine to authentic Mexican to Japanese inspired.
You can dine by candlelight in some luxurious spaces, or you can enjoy the fresh air and the view of the water at many of the open-air restaurants. With the waves providing the atmosphere, there’s no way to go wrong.
Each restaurant features a unique vibe and some, like Caprichos, offer evening entertainment. You get a great meal, a lot of ambiance, and no bill to pay at the end. If only every dining experience could be exactly like that.
