My trip to Blue Diamond was the result of my friends who are members of Blue Bay's Circle 1 club. We were very fortunate to have an incredible beachfront Casita. It was stunning, spacious and pristine. The service was fantastic and especially good with a good tip. (Tipping was new to me at a resort as my only other experience... More

My husband and I visited Blue Diamond Riviera Maya at the recommendation of a friend. His review? A great facility, but the food is just okay. He really could not have been more accurate! This hotel was formerly owned by Mandarin Oriental and when you arrive at the grand hotel lobby, you can see the Mandarin influence. The property is... More

We booked this hotel last fall and went in feb 2015. At the time we had booked we didn't realize it was an all inclusive resort - we tend to avoid all inclusive resorts because usually the service, quality of food is mediocre, and I don't drink nor do we eat much. Not to mention the crowd can be a... More

My husband and I went for a last minute holiday to relax. We could not have found a more perfect place for us!!! The food was exceptional!!! We were impressed with all the restaurants and could not have asked for more. The staff was fantastic, they were friendly and went above and beyond all expectations. Cesar would show up at... More

Overall stay: Fantastic. Now for some details. Ambiance: This is a quiet place. No hawkers, the ever-present time share folks were not too pushy. Food: Very good, no buffets, eating took a long pleasant time. Place: Unique in that the suites are either located on a river, cenote or the ocean. We had our own private little yard in our... More

My husband and I went with another couple for 5 nights at the end of February 2015. This was my fourth all-inclusive in Mexico but my first time to this resort. I loved the quietness and the size of the resort. It wasn't overwhelming as some bigger resorts are and not crawling with people so you can actually relax. There... More

We enjoyed our six day stay at the resort. The resort is quiet, the rooms are opulent and the beach is never crowded or noisy. Special praise for our waiter - Luis (not sure of the spelling)- on the last night of our stay.

I have just returned from the Blue Diamond where I stayed with my husband and my parents for 5 nights to celebrate my 50th birthday. I also wanted to surprise my husband and renew our vows, but my husband found out about it and nixed the idea upfront. I am glad he did, because I did not get even a... More

Its interesting to compare reviews of Blue Diamond on Trip Advisor with those for the same hotel on the site of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, where it is a member. The SLH folk on the whole are much more demanding and appear to be holding the hotel to a higher standard of performance and professionalism. This is our... More

This place is awesome and the servers are incredible. Fedirico at the pool bar is awesome in the evenings and sexy Javii during the day is excellent as well. Luis can make a killer ceaser. Roman in the Ambur is a great waiter. Cesar on the beach server is the hardest worker in the Mayan. Artiro and Jesus are excellent... More
