Trip Reports / Stooges44 Mini Cancun TR
« on: August 03, 2018, 12:43:20 PM »
Here's a mini TR. Mods can feel free to create a thread out of this if they see fit.

We flew jetblue which we love, so the flight was great. When we arrived in cun and went through immigration even though we had a green light when we pushed the button we were still pulled aside and our cream cheese bagels were confiscated so we lost our lunch for that day  :(   

We stayed at the JW Marriott and since the only rooms available were "upgraded" rooms, a " Premium Ocean view" we had to pay for the upgrade as well. Since I am gold I had assumed I would receive the upgrade comped but they refused via email and in person so if any veterans out there have any advice on if/how I can get the points I paid for upgrade back that would be great!

The hotel itself is awesome, the staff is incredibly nice and the pools are magnificent. There are at least 6 pools and 2 jacuzzis and one pool is adult only. The hotel is big with tons of seating area to lounge (I'm used to city hotels that are squashed and very small). They have a mini store with souvenirs and random odds and ends that you would find in a 7-11 or gas station mart including kosher snacks, it's expensive but at least I got 10% off as gold.

The hotel is far far from town, which we liked because it's quiet but it's a 10 minute drive from the restaurant. Which brings me to...

The restaurants, the red heifer was amazing! It really was simply amazing food! Like others have said half the menu they don't have and out of the 4 nights we were there we went to the red heifer for 3 of them and each time they had a different selection. One night was "no chicken", one night was "no meat and no chicken except the thigh", and the next night we got there early enough that they had 6 pieces on chicken left. So the first night we got burgers:

They were excellent, granted we were starving but they really were great.

The next night we got soups and sides:


Both were simply delicious! We didn't get any steaks even when they did have them simply bec of the insane price (that's just us though, they weren't outrageously priced but too much for us  ;D)

So all in all the red heifer was a huge hit with us, they have an army of waiters although it was not at all crowded each time we were there and the staff is very, very nice.

We also tried dag dag and that... was a very, very different experience. DISCLAIMER: I have nothing against the wonderful owners of dag dag at all but I feel like people should know this so they don't trek out there if they don't want to. Dag dag is not a "restaurant" by any stretch, it's like a house where the owner - who is also the cook - lives on top with his wife and they open from 2 - 4:30 and then again from 7 - 11 I think. The actual seating area looks like a bunk house with wooden tables and wooden benches (see pic below). The whole atmosphere feels very unclean and like yuk and the only reason we didn't turn around and leave is because we couldn't find the place and called him at least 4 times for directions so we felt obligated to stay. We ordered a pizza which was like a personal pie with hair thin crust. He had completely run out of any drinks so he told us on the phone that we should go to a local shop and buy some if we wanted, since we were so frazzled already we just wanted to find the place and didn't bring a drink with us. But, while we were there he got the delivery of drinks except he had no cash to pay so I kid you not he went to each us (there were 2 other groups of people aside from us at the time) and wanted to borrow so he can pay them. 

Dag dag was an experience I wont be forgetting anytime soon and again they are lovely people but maybe because I'm a new yorker I was expecting something different. The walls are full of pics of people that were there so they clearly do get business and he said that at nights it's packed because no one really knows how to cook a fish like him, he's been catching and cooking since he was a kid..

One night we ordered from chabad which like others have said here was also awesome. It was still warm when we got it and it was delicious. The only downside is that the latest they deliver is 5:30 which is a bit early for dinner but oh well, the whole process was a pleasure. As I have seen here many times I tried to get the hotel to heat it up for us later but they just looked at me strange when I asked.

Activities: We had intended on doing "nothing" as that is our ideal getaway. We don't like coming home more exhausted then when we left. But one day we did go out because we saw this enormous ferris wheel that looked interesting and it reminded me of the london eye. We got there at about 12 only to find out that it opens at 2  :( so we just walked around the shops there since it's in La Isla Mall which is an outdoor mall. They have a haagen dazs and starbucks but we had no clue if it was kosher so we stayed away. When the La Gran Rueda Cancun finally opened we saw that it pales in comparison to the london eye but it was still cool and only $15 a person:

We didn't rent a car and I'm happy I didn't because I don't think I would've been able to drive there, buses and cabs were constantly zooming all over the place I was quite scared at times. We used USA Transfers (which I got from the wiki) for round trip transportation from the airport to the hotel and that was fine and also very nice staff. The first night we took a cab to the red heifer and when I saw there was no meter I knew we were in trouble because that meant the guy makes up the price on the spot. So the next day we tried the bus and it was great, it's 12 pesos a person which is less then $1!

Finally, I would add this, when you are walking around town you will get stopped literally every 5 feet by someone asking if you want to go on a tour or do any "activities". I'm not exaggerating, in the span on 10 minutes you will be harassed at least 4 times by 4 different people it's soooo annoying and they are everywhere!

Hope this helps someone  :D

I got it on my evd card ( I don't have any other Mr cards)

So, I saw this yesterday and didn't get an email per se and figured I wasn't targeted, then I found the link for it and also found that if I try it on a non-prime account with an amex card that's linked to it, it should work and sure enough: (see attached)

Here's the link

I tried it another account also but on that I got this message:

So it's still YMMV.

Good luck!
