Sun, Sand, and Serenity: My All-Inclusive Vacation at The Pyramid Cancun

For the past 12 months, Cancun has reigned as redtag.ca’s top trending destination. As an avid traveller and proud member of the #redtagfam, I couldn’t resist the temptation of seeing what the hype was all about. I’ve always thought of Cancun as a party place and had previously opted for the more relaxed vibes of Playa Del Carmen or the ultra cool feel of Tulum when vacationing in Mexico. But with my annual all-inclusive retreat on the horizon, I grabbed my husband, packed our bags, and jet setted to paradise - Cancun, here I (finally) come!

Our home away from home was The Pyramid Cancun, which is part of the Oasis Hotels & Resorts group. They go by the tagline OASIS LOVES U and describe themselves as an entertainment resort. I also noticed that they had a ton of different food options, many of which had some notable recognitions. My favourite part about travelling is always the food, so this very much intrigued me. If there’s a beach and great food, what else could you need? 

Obviously travelling to any resort for the first time can be a little daunting, since you don’t know what to expect - but we were pleasantly surprised by the laidback world of indulgence and entertainment that the Pyramid had. Our package included all experiences other than a few of the dining options and one of the beach clubs, but we ended up trying three of the restaurants that were extra and they did not disappoint! I also really liked that while the resort is family-friendly, they offer some adults-only experiences which was nice for us wanting to indulge in a little romantic time to ourselves.

Overall, this was a fantastic trip! Keep reading for my highlight reel of my first Cancun vacation
at The Pyramid by Oasis.

Pyramid 1

The entertainment is elite…

When they say they’re all about entertainment, they’re not joking. First, let me preface this by saying that my husband is an ex-performer. He did everything from the National Ballet to Broadway to Cirque du Soleil - so when he says something is good, I know it’s good. One thing that was really interesting to learn was that they do all their entertainment in-house at the resort, which means they don’t contract out. When I say they were talented, oh my goodness, they had us singing, laughing, dancing all through the night at Kinky Night Club. While this is an adults-only experience, it wasn’t anything wild - just good dancing, singing, and entertainment. (although I did capture a pretty hilarious moment of my husband with one of the dancers). We had so much fun each night and looked forward to our front row spot to soak it all in!

If you’re a foodie, you’ll love this place…

One of the highlights of our stay was definitely the variety of culinary offerings at The Pyramid. With a plethora of dining options to choose from, we never went hungry, and made sure to try almost everything from the buffet (Tatish) to the outdoor food court (La Placita) to the renowned 15-course fixed menu of innovative molecular masterpieces (Benazuza). Each of which was a feast for our senses. Living in Toronto, I had always wanted to try the famous restaurant where you eat in complete darkness, but never made it there. Well, never in a million years did I think I would be able to do this at a resort in Cancun - but I was! We dined at The Black Sens on our second last night, and while I’d love to tell you all about it, it truly is one of those things you just need to see - or not see, rather -  for yourself.

Loved this VIP beach club experience…

Access to the Miramar Beach Club & Restaurant was included with our wristband. After the first day we went, I knew this is where I wanted to spend the rest of the days of our vacation. Here we dined on some of my favourite dishes at the resort like the calamari and fish tacos. The beach club boasts about 12 exclusive cabana-style loungers, so we booked ours each day and enjoyed a more private, elevated setting with bar service and basically a private pool, all right above the beach. Oh, and they’d even bring us out some appetizers like the delicious guacamole so we never had to leave that area. Honestly, having this section available to us absolutely made our stay! This premium service was exceptional and I would easily go back just to spend more time at the Miramar Beach Club.
