Crossed over to the "Dark Side"

Yes, I have crossed over to the DARK SIDE :twisted: . I have been posting on the dreaded Tripadvisor for several years now, under the name "DonCarlos". I hope you all forgive me for my transgressions but I needed an outlet to other destinations in Mexico other than PV. Don't get me wrong, I still lo...

Sorry to here of his passing. I had used his services many times but have not been back to the GCP in 3-4 years. I'm glad to see the place is still getting it's share of great reviews.

We really liked the place so much we were there 11 times. I know others have out paced us, but this resort really has a following.

I booked the cheapest room I could get. I don't intend to be in it much. The rest of the resort, beach, food and bars are what I'm interested in.

Don't expect to find a great deal for Feb unless you want to wait and pray for a quick book say a week or two before you go. Then again it's possible most hotels could be near or at capacity and you will have to settle for something less than you really want. I did research on my next trip (Marival ...

I wll look those both up during our trip to the Marival in Jan. Eventhough the menus at the Marival look awsome, we like to eat off of the property at least twice during the week.

Just because I like to stir the pot I'm going to update this thread. The only other thing that rattles peoples chains about resorts other than wether to go AI or not is wether to tip or not. To those who do not tip, you can call me a SOB and I won't care. I tip heavily and often. It is one of the pl...

There are a lot of things I don't do while on vacation in Mexico and driving is one of them. I do enough while back in the states. When in Mexico I prefer to use the busses, colectivos and taxis.

Plus4 Looking forward to get back to the west coast for a vacation. We are going to give Nuevo a try and I hope we like it. We've done all the trips and tours so our vacations now border on sloth. My interests are a nice beach, clean and active pool, good bars and decent food. I think I will find th...

Funjet had departures from most anywhere in the country. We are lucky to be in St. Louis, one of their most busy hubs for trips to PV and Cancun.
We can usually find good deals easily and I am always ready to take advantage of them.

First, on this site you have AI lovers and AI detesters. I myself prefer an AI since I only stay one week at a time and I like to be pampered for that week. Luckily we have been able to get to Mexico 2-3 times a year since 1999 so now all we do is veg on the beach or at the pools, sipping on delicio...

Kay and I tan all year long, since we never know when we will pick up a hot deal to either coast. Never want to waste a minute of that wonderful sunny beach.
