Hi girls-- Looking for advice on what you would do in this situation!
FI and I had booked our honeymoon for the Paradisus Rivera Cancun, which was owned by Sol Melia Resorts and were SO excited to go--we loved the look of the beach and the resort feel that it had (3 story villas as opposed to giant hotel type set up), and the fact that it was all inclusive! Then today I got a phone call from Sol Melia saying they had sold the resort!
They offered us to transfer our reservation to the Grand Melia Cancun for the same price, and receive upgrades (massages, nicer room, etc) if we did so. However, the Grand Melia is much more of a hotel feel, and is not all inclusive. They said they would give us an all inclusive package for no extra costs, but on top of the huge hotel feel, I am hesitant as to how they will make it all inclusive for us if it is not how the hotel typically operates.
Of course, Sol Melia did nothing to tell us about who took over the Paradisus Cancun, but I did some digging and it has become the Now Sapphire Cancun. Trip advisor only has 6 reviews of it under the new name/ownership, but none of them are glowing by any means. FI and I aren't hard people to please though, just wanted access to the pool, the beach, and food with as little hassle as possible...
SO, what do you think you would do? Transfer the reservation, or stick with the resort we picked out despite the changes? THANKS!
