My husband and I decided to stay at 3 hotels on our vacation to see what different hotels have to offer. We stayed at 2 all-inclusive hotels (one was adults only) and then we chose the Holiday Inn Cancun Arenas with the breakfast only package.

This is a very "average" hotel which has recently been renovated. The rooms are very clean, we got good service from staff,and the food was decent (not gourmet by any stretch). All in all, it was a nice place but a little rough around the edges. It is one of the first hotels you come to on the strip so...

A friend and I stayed at the HI Arenas during a 4th of July break. We had a great time, and a positive experience, but ironically, many of the people we met there had a very different experience. This was our first time in Cancun, and first all-inclusive experience. I found the hotel to be very pleasant, very welcoming and...

Ok, there is a lot to say. I will try to keep it short. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Arenas all inclusive hotel for a week. Everything about the hotel was great. The only thing that was bad was the beach. The hotel is located on the bay side and not the Atlantic ocean side, so there were no...
