We traveled with Sunquest, via Sky Service and arrived on time. We paid the $10.00 each way
for reserved seats. It is a good idea as sometimes you get to the airport a little late and end up not
sitting together on the trip home. It was just under an hour drive to the resort.

We arrived at the resort just after noon.
We were not greated with a welcome drink but there was no line up for check in.
We were told that our room would not be ready until 3PM but managed to get one in an hour or so.
Room 425, very close to the center of the half moon shaped one building resort.

The bridge we crossed is the boarder between the state of Colima and Jalisco. The beach below is the Blue Bay resort

Each room has a safe but there is a charge of 20 Pesos a day for the lock.
You will also receive towel cards at check-in and will be charged $25.00 USD for each card not turned in at check-out.
I forgot to hand mine in, and I wasn't asked for them
There is Internet access in the lobby, 50 Pesos for 30 minutes. The machine looks old but the connection is not bad
You are given a large container of bottled water that you must get refilled at the bar or resaurant as you need it
These are pictures of the lobby, hallways, lounge area, and pizza restaurant.

The first two pictures were taken from our room balcony (425) and the others from the "Specialty" resturant and Disco building
(shown in the first picture) The third picture shows our room - top centre with the flowers on the balcony.
You are given a slip of paper that entitles each guest to make 1 reservation per week at the specialty restaurant.

Miscellaneous pics along the 2+ miles of beach
About 30 boats were anchored in the north end of the bay. Many stay here for 6 weeks and more.
There is a makeshift "restaurant" at the far end of the beach were the boaters come to by dingy for
beers etc. and play Dominos. We had shrimp and Corona there one day.
12 large shrimp was 60 Pesos and the beer was 10 Pesos This is not part of the resort.

We rented the Seadoo one day (40.00 USD for 30 minutes) It was great. I highly recommend it. We only saw one other
party rent it the whole week. Don't be cheap, take it out. We buzzed the boats and had the dogs barking at us.
We traveled almost out of sight of the resort. Behind one rock was a guy in a boat fishing.
You can just see the resort to the right of the rock. We took a waterproof camera with us.

We came across three cats that are living in a hole under one of the room patio slabs just next to the pizza restaurant.
They are often basking in the sun but always aware when someone approaches and head for the hole
We always brought them food we snuck from the restaurant. If you decide to feed them, please do it discreatly
The management likely would not approve and I wouldn't want their attention drawn to the cats.

These other "critters" climb the rocks at night around the disco/restaurant.
I don't know how friendly they are but I didn't get too close. We fed them bread that dissapeared seconds after it hit the ground.

We took at taxi into Barra de Navidad. It is 26 KM from the resort and costs $26.00 USD each way for 4 people.
We found 2 others that wanted to go and split the cost. There are side trips to "Barra" that include a banana plantation etc
that will cost you $60.00 USD per person. Save $$$ and go by taxi, you will see banana plants along the road on the way.
