Re: Web Cam Views - So Sad

I know what you mean Dan. As soon as I open each cam I saw that there was not a lounge chair, around the pools, not a single lounge on the beach and not a single person anywhere . I know the resort is closed during this troubling time for all of us but the impact of seeing a live view of total deser...

Re: Major Problem With Best Day a/k/a BD Travel

Please learn from our mistake and perhaps use the transportation company mentioned on the Grand Palladium fan web site, or the one often used by the Palladium Addict Moderator, "Canada Transfer". We have used Canada Transfers many times without issue, the cold beer on board helps as well, sorry to ...

Re: TRS Turquesa v TRS Yucatan

Having been to both numerous times I would have to agree with many of the points Doug made, with that being said we enjoyed ourselves at both resorts, if it was a toss up as to which to visit we would probably lean towards the Mayan.

Re: Evening activities/Chic show

I'm really on the fence about it...that's a LONG time for dinner...lol! But the pre-show is sooooo much fun!! I wouldn't call it dinner unless you are really into seafood, which I am not, had dinner before hand and then just snacked during the show as it were. You will enjoy it, they put on a great...

Re: Lobster only at Helios?

It only let you get a shot at a time. 4 Bottles. Rum, Brandy, Tequila and Vodka. It was the cheapest booze imaginable though. No idea how people could drink it. Sounds like the idea I had mentioned. Cheap booze is only relative to a sober person, after a few drinks they all start tasting good even ...

Re: Lobster only at Helios?

This is interesting. Did you have your choice of booze, or was it the same in every room? This was early in our travelling days 8 or 9 years ago, I guess you could say we were travel newbies at the time and never thought to ask if we could choose, if memory serves the cabinet held 4 bottles, it was...

Re: Lobster only at Helios?

As luck would have it my wife and I don't go for seafood, well unless we are talking about coconut shrimp, so any Lobster restrictions will have no effect on us but I can see that this is a touchy subject for Lobster lovers. :23: They are starting to do some cost cutting measures.

Re: Chic reservation charge

Ok on second thought you are right. That money... $360 pesos per person easily pays all the dancers and singers and most of the food bill. So I guess it ensures that Chic doesn't lose money for them and they can continue to offer the show at the resort. Makes good business sense. I am all for them ...
