    ok, here is a great idea...i think. jamie and I were at bed bath and beyond last week registering for our November wedding and i had a great idea!!! they had a section that has those foam mattress covers. two ways to go...
    cheap foam one ($20)that can be put in nylon gym bag and packed as luggage then thrown away at the end of the week( bag can be folded up small and be repacked in another bag)
    or expensive one ($50)that comes in its own travel bag with handles that can be reused
    now this seems like alot of trouble , but for us we had a few bad nights that the beds were just to uncomfortably hard to sleep and we take only 2-large bags each so we have room for another piece of luggage that will be very very light( another advantage breakables can be packed in the middle)!!!
    any thoughts on this? or better ideas? :?: :?

    Some folks have reported they took a 15 minute bus ride to WalMart and fought a foam egg crate thingy and then left it behind. You won't have to carry it on the plane.

    I started off reading this and thought... who was I with last week registering for our November wedding?????? And then I realized it was be the ugly Jamie but the beautiful Jamie..... Then I thought... wait registering for our November wedding????? You have married that girl yet???? There's still time for me to steal her away???? And then I remembered that Chris might have a little problem with that..... so I got my brain back on track and continued reading....

    :wink:

    I personally feel that the more I drink the softer the beds become. I would recommend trying that before spending money on one of those foam things, even though those work aswell.

    No complaints with the bed!!!!!!
    Like I said in my trip report, my glass was never empty the entire week!

    No complaints with mine either, can't be doing with a squishy bed anyhow. But then, I have been known to sleep on the bathroom floor when drunk :oops: so that could be why!

    Cinccouple,

    Sorry but that's a different Chris and Jamie coming in August. I thought it was going to be a little when I typed it in. :D But if we're every there together I'll be sure to pick up your bar tab at BBG. :D

    Frank,

    Man that makes it harder than every to go to the Bahamas in October rather than BBG. :( Congratulations to bother of you. :D

    Oh... and by the way, I've heard of a few people buying the egg crates for the beds at BBG but have never followed one, or at least it was gone before I checked in. Wonder what happens to the ones that get leaft behind.

    Anyone ever check in to find one on their bed when they got there?

    No you are NOT wussy's....the beds are hard as hell!!!!

    They have NO give in them and will give you bed sores in NO TIME FLAT!

    It has nothing to do with being drunk or a wussy........that's just how the beds are all over Cancun, unless you stay at someplace like the Ritz where they import the mattresses.

    Pay the $20 and get a freakin pad or you'll be sorry!

    Alot of folks like to ignore the negative things about going to Cancun...let them....but if you don't particularly fancy the idea of sleeping on what appears to be a concrete slab, get some padding!

    You've been warned...so if you don't follow the advise, please don't blast Cancun in a trip report by saying how hard the beds are and how you had to run to the chiropractor as soon as you got home.

    Are all the beds hard? My room was in the "new" section, and I dont remember the bed being too hard. Of course there are a number of things I dodnt remember too well from that trip!

    Klaw Guest

    I don't think they are all hard....

    Like you, I have stayed in the new section many times and didn't have any complaints about the beds.

    The person who has gone with me many times in the past has a bad back and for the most part I don't recall her complaining about the beds in that section either.

    LOL!

    I've been going to Cancun for over 10 years and every bed I've slept in, no matter which hotel, the bed was hard as hell.....

    An this is coming from someone who for medical reasons must sleep on a firm mattress....those in Cancun give a whole new meaning to the word firm.
