    George, thanks for the information regarding your recent stay at Coral Beach. I agree with you: a buck and six bits isn't bad at all for a 32oz. bottle. Where I got alarmed over the 10 and 11 dollars a bottle charge came from a couple of posters on tripadvisor.com, who posted that they were charged that amount. Didn't mean to stir up a mini-hornets nest here. Thanks again to all who've offered information on the subject.

    And I doubt that the problem would ever come up at any hotel you might stay at.

    Wrong or right only depends on whether the market will support.

    Until, however, the market there becomes less dependent on timeshare, the developers of would-be enclaves for the rich and famous won't significantly impact Walmart, the habits of the folks that patronize Walmart, or the majority of the culture that has created and is still responsible for supporting what we know of as Cancun.

    Now it's possible that the Grand Coral Beach, which is the resort that was first asked about here and IS very much a timeshare resort, might like to emulate the ME and it's practices, but as I mentioned earlier - that would be a failed strategy. The idea that you would sell me a kitchenette and then tell me that I can't use it would be insufficiently consistent to warrant any expectation of success.

    Ooops, was thinking about the Hilton or Hyatt or whatver that's up the street with a similar name.

    Mike - it appears that if you want to get your water at Walmart, you may have picked one of the 3 or 4 places in Cancun where that wouldn't be politically correct.

    I firmly believe that the words politically correct translate to brain dead. :)

    As much as I don't personally like the direction of the experiment it represents, it's no different than gated communities you see springing up around Las Vegas. If there's a market to be served, you have to wish them well, as it will add to the viability, the utility, and even to some extent the diversity of the community.

    If they do well, it's possible that you could more easily see folks like Cheryl Crowe and former President Zedillo casually stolling the streets of Cancun, whereas without such places, that might not happen as easily, and as little as I care about Cheryl Crowe and former President Zedillo in particular, I suspect the places they and other such celebrities frequent probably benefit in more ways than the little bit we have to give up by choosing not to reside in the same building as they when on vacation.

    That being said - it appears that you DID pick the wrong hotel.

    Make the best of it, have fun, and volunteer to take the service elevator when hauling bags from WalMart and pizzas from Dominos and chances are everything will be OK.
