Breezes Runaway Bay Resort & Golf Club Reviews
An awesome destination Nov 17, 2010
Breezes Runaway Bay was my first all-inclusive attempt. It completely blew away my expectations.
My girlfriend had never been to the Caribbean, so we planned the trip to expose her to that atmosphere, and to get SCUBA certified if she took to the ocean like I do. I picked this resort over others in places more geared to diving, namely Cozumel, because it appeared to be a nice mix between nice beaches and reef that was reachable off the shore for snorkeling. It was perfect!
Beautiful, wide beaches led to crystal clear water with great snorkeling only 30' or so into the ocean. Diving was also very good. We dove to about 70' for our certifications, and the on-site staff and prices were excellent. We'll go back here when we want to get higher certifications.
I was worried about the food due to reviews about all-inclusive resorts. I found some things I didn't like, but I was always able to find something good. Watch for bones. Drinks were awesome - try a dirty banana for sure!
The rooms were nice. The smell wasn't as musty as many ocean destinations I've been to. Shower water pressure was great, and you will love the deluxe shower if you get one! The bed was a bed - I had no problems sleeping on it.
The resort staff was friendly, laid back (in every way you could imagine), and accommodating. Awesome servers and bar tenders. Rooms, grounds, and beaches were groomed daily/nightly and always in top shape.
For what it is worth, I've been to a large number of the Caribbean islands and Mexican destinations, and I will almost definitely book my next ocean vacation here again. Highly recommended!
