do you bring food in from the states? what are we allowed to take over the border?
is there a market that is close by?
how is the food at the resort?
are drinks pricey?
any info would be a help. thanks
There is a store at the resort that has minimal groceries; not as good as WKORV. Many of the items are a bit different as they are not from US. There is a general store at the mall accross the street but honestly I don't think that they had too much more than the store at the Westin. You can take a bus to Walmart and then a cab back. Walmart has just about anything that you might need. I am not sure what you allowed to bring on the plane as we have never tried.
The food at the resort is good although we kind of got sick of it by the 7th day. The pool restaurant has pretty good lunches (sandwiches, wraps, tacos, quesadillas, pizza, and burgers) and service is very good. The full service restaurant has some pretty good food (steak, fish, chicken) although the service was a bit slow all four times that we ate there; try the lobster tacos for an appetizer. I would suggest to skip the weekly Italian buffet; the food was terrible!
The prices of the drinks are about what they are at most other resorts in Cancun. When you convert the pesos to dollars, I think the drinks are $6-10 depending on what you order. I would highly recommend that you order all of your drinks at the swim up bar. They taste much better there.
