I am a Club Maeva Tulum girl who still loves to walk that stretch of beach. Went to CRT just a week before they went all adult in 2008. After a long hiatus with 2 surgeries, I am now planning a Sept trip with my boyfriend. Confused a bit about the room and Privilege choices. On Vacay Express, a little vague. It looks from pics that many beach lounges have no shade. The privileged beach has some palapas and shade from what I can see, but very condensed. Would appreciate any advice as to room and upgrading on booking vs at the resort on check-in. Are the outdoor jacuzzi's open to everyone still or privileged? What is the difference in the ala carte breakfast and La Palapa? I am ok with a buffet, but is La Palapa just Continental now or still the good buffet?
