Gorgeous condo, perfect hostess!

Our stay at the Residencial Bridec condominiums was all we hoped it would be and then some. Since friends had warned us before our trip that facilities in Mexico are sometimes substandard in the area of utilities, plumbing, WiFi etc., we were delighted to find everything in our condo in excellent working order, no different than in our own home in the U.S. The unit we stayed in was beautifully appointed, the rooms enormous and airy, and the views from our private balcony simply breathtaking. And when we could tear ourselves away to do some sightseeing, the location was perfect, being close to the R1 bus that circles the Hotel Zone. We were also relieved to be away from the noisy "party central" area of the strip; our neighbor on one side was a very quiet small hotel, and on the other, the Governor of Cancun's mansion, so we had the entire beach out front all to ourselves.
However, the highlight of our trip actually arose from a very unfortunate incident, when I lost my passport during an all-day excursion to visit ruins and do some snorkelling. I called Anabel, who instantly took over the long and confusing process of getting a replacement in time for my return flight home. Since she is perfectly bilingual (I am not!) and a longtime resident of Cancun, she was able to pick me up at our door and drive me all over town, acting as translator and facilitator at the succession of necessary stops - Consulate, bank, photographer, courier service, Immigration. She accomplished what would have been impossible for me to do quickly on my own: I had a temporary passport in my hand 24 hours after I first phoned her!
As a rule I like to go to a new place each year on my annual trip, but in the case of Cancun, I would love to return. Visiting a gorgeous part of the world, staying in lovely quarters, and being looked after by a hostess like Anabel is an experience worth repeating!
