Day 1 complete of the BDR - today was completely free. We got to Mexico safely, took USA Transfers to get to Azul Fives (they were great and accepted 1CAD for 1USD....which is pretty amazing right now!!!). We checked in without an issue and was told our room would be ready. It was almost ready when we got there but not quite -our WC was really apologetic. It was totally fine - we were just happy to be there and decided to grab lunch while they finished cleaning up the room. We ended up getting a sky suite and it is absolutely gorgeous!!!
We had our first meal at the Oriola Grill - they have a fresh ceviche bar (so good!!) and then we ordered some tacos for our mains.
We then went back to our room and changed into our bathings suits and headed for the beach. I was really impressed with the seaweed. I was expecting it to be fairly bad but I hardly noticed it at all. The beach is also not rocky...something we were concerned about after returning from my cousin's wedding at a different resort a couple of years ago.
We were in the ocean and the infinity pool today and they are both wonderful.
Luckily our TA was at Azul Fives last week and she made us some reservations for restaurants! We ate at Arezzo tonight, and it was fantastic! We also checked out the Sky lounge, 1910 Mexican Cantina and the Gin Bar tonight.
I recommend the following drinks:
-1910 (from 1910 Mexican Cantina)
-Batillon (from 1910 Mexican Cantina)
-Tropical Water (from the Gin Bar)
Here are a couple of pics from Day 1:
