This June, I was incredibly privileged to be invited onto the AM Resorts agent trip in Mexico.
In the past I’ve shied away from All Inclusive holidays, having terrible memories of a bun fight at the buffet that was always the same, day in day out. I’m a bit of a foodie and ‘brown’, bland food just doesn’t cut it.
We visited Zoetry, Secrets, Dreams and Now properties and after experiencing the ‘unlimited luxury’, I am an all-inclusive convert. You can eat a different meal each night, whether it’s traditional Mexican cuisine, French, Seafood, Italian, Mediterranean, Pan Asian – each restaurant is beautifully designed to reflect the country with an ambience to match. The food is fresh, of the highest quality and always served with the highest standards of service and huge smiles (this welcome radiated throughout every resort).
If you don’t want a huge meal, you have the option of a yummy snack at the Barefoot Grill by the pool, and one of my favourites was the Coco Café. Every morning, I had an early morning walk and treated myself to a fresh coffee served with a smile (and a pastry/cake if I was feeling particularly naughty).
If you have any allergies or special requirements – that’s not a problem. You most certainly won’t go hungry. Gone are the days of vegetarians having an option of omelette - you’re spoiled for choice.
I enjoyed some delicious cocktails – alcoholic and non alcoholic. Again, nothing is too much trouble. Glasses are cleared and service is on hand at all times – always with a smile.
If all this still isn’t enough for you, you have the option of wine tasting or tequila tasting. We also had a couple of cookery lessons. None of these were boring and staid. We had a lot of fun and learned some skills along the way (who can ever get bored of fresh guacamole?).
Since coming back to the UK, I’ve already booked 3 honeymoons and a destination wedding, with a number of others in the pipeline. I just have one dilemma – which property to return to next year.
Thank you so much to AM Resorts for a fabulous experience of a lifetime. Like Arnie – I will be back! ;-)
