The next day, I discovered poolside perfection and beachfront bliss; both are easily accessible from a dedicated elevator. Speaking of pools, the one in the on-site spa has huge windows providing captivating views of the ocean. I was a little too early to see it for myself, but rumor has it the spa pool is the best sunset-watching spot at the resort. Let attendees in on the secret so they can check it out during downtime.
After soaking in the massive spa hot tub, it was off to Sasi Thai next door at CasaMagna, a short walk away. The palapa-covered restaurant serves traditional Thai dishes like satays and curries, complemented by martinis in tropical flavors like passion fruit, lychee and tamarind. And because Sasi shares a kitchen with Mikado Japanese Teppanyaki, guests can order off its menu of sushi, Teppanyaki-style dishes and noodles too. A buyout of this one-of-a-kind space is a palate-pleasing option for groups with different tastes.
The main takeaway from my visit? Three days was far too short, and a return trip is definitely in order. Groups will love the on-site dining, pristine beach and sparkling pools at Marriott Cancun Collection.
