My wife and I visited Playa del Carmen for ten days in November and split our time between Blue Diamond and Banyan Tree Mayakoba. I decided to book Blue Diamond after seeing it won Jetsetter’s best all inclusive (as I trust most of what is on the website), however, I was a bit apprehensive about the resort knowing that it...

Went here for a destination wedding. I believe the wedding crowd filled half the rooms if not more. Rooms: Stayed in Cenote suite. Room was huge, nice, private, great shower and outdoor tub. Very private with luscious landscape. Food: 3-4 restaurants on site. Overall, pretty good for all-inclusive. Great tuna tartar and smoothies. Not impressed with the beef. Staff: Seemed... More

We ended up here by accident as our original resort was overbooked. We saw that this was a five star resort but north of Playa del Carmen in the Mayakoba area. They Mayakoba area in general has a number of very high end resorts and Blue Diamond is right next to them, but is a smaller, more boutique hotel that... More

We came here for a quick getaway for our honeymoon on referral from our friends. OMG, we did NOT want to leave. We LOVED the amazing guest service, the much desired serenity (so grateful it was adults only), the true "all inclusive nature" (the minibar had everything, long distance calls were free, wifi free, everything came all inclusive), and the...

I spent six nights here on my own in November, and overall, had a great time. I was in a patio junior suite and the room was huge, quiet and perfect with a modern bathroom and two showers. Not a complaint to be had with the room and I would stay here again in a heart beat. The staff is... More

Let me preface my review by stating that I am equally happy staying in a beach shack with no electricity or running water, with the only luxury being a mosquito net, as I am staying at a 5-star resort. For me, the quality of an accommodation is all about whether I received what I was led to believe I was... More

We have just returned from a week at this resort and judging from other reviews thought we would record our pro's and con's, based on our holiday experience, to help others make an informed decision on whether to visit the Blue Diamond. Let's start with the pro's: Adults only, beautiful well kept gardens and lagoons, excellent food in all restaurants,... More

We arrived on a Monday around 1:30 pm. Upon arrival we were asked to wait in the lobby to be checked in. The seating area was dirty and filled with 3-4 used glasses. Once we were told our room was ready, the golf cart driver took us to a room that was currently occupied-Someone was in the shower. We were... More

We stayed October 28 - November 2, 2014. This was our first Small Luxury Hotel booking and it was just great. What we loved: The staff and the food were excellent. The Aguamarina restaurant rotated it's menu each night which gave us the opportunity to try different options from the chef. The food was super fresh and very high quality.... More
