Trip Report: Royal Playa del Carmen August 26th to Sep 1st

Hola!

Howdy folks, two days left until my wife and I head to RPDC, celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary.

This will be our second trip to RPDC (and Playa). I started a trip report after the first one, and even promised not to be one of those people that start and never finish their report. Ooops. Needless to say it was never finished. So I feel the need to vindicate myself by actually completing it this time.

Previous (unfinished) Trip Report:

So we are starting to pack, using our learning's from last time - more bathing suits, fewer other clothes. It has been an interesting year. We booked this trip knowing that my job might be in jeopardy due to being bought out by a competitor. We bought trip insurance in case the prognosis was not good, we could bail. However when I learned that I most likely will need to start looking for a new job in the coming months, we decided that we need this vacation more than ever - full steam ahead!

Looking forward to a great time and sharing it with you guys.

Brian

Online appears to be down, pulls up my info but on the next screen says system is not available. I worked with Erika via email a few weeks ago though to get us a room, so we should be all set.

I had a feeling you were going to tell me that about checking-in online. I have been in touch with Erika for the last couple of months. I saw in your last post about adventuring out and the Piola Basil Martini???? Did you read my TR

If you find us the Royal and you and your wife want to adventure out with us, you and your wife are more than welcomed to join us!!!!!! I have to have my Basil Martini in Playa!!!!

Interested to hear how the new non-smoking policy is and where the designated smoking areas are.
