Went to resort for destination wedding. Resort is beautiful and rooms very nice. All was great until a outbreak of some viral illness hit a good percentage of the 70 guests. This happened not all at once but over the course of a week. My biggest concern is one night we came back to our room around 1 AM to... More

My husband and I just returned for 8 days at the Blue Diamond to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. I got food poisoning three days in to the trip. His came a day later, and we are still recovering. Four other guests also talked to us about being ill as we visited around the pool. A member of the staff... More

A very good small hotel, excellent staff and private rooms. Take a room close to the beach or you will rely on a golf cart to move you around. All inclusive food was not buffet style but a changing menu daily. First class food and I like my food! Drinks were all quality brands and plentiful. Beach first class and... More

We went for a birthday party of about 30 people. The moment we arrived, we were greeted with very friendly staff members. They made us feel very welcome and at home. The property is absolutely beautiful with a lot of foliage and some of the suites are overlooking a lagoon or the ocean. Our suite was very spacious and beautiful... More

My wife and I stayed at Blue Diamond in mid-July. This was our 2nd trip to BD, having first discovered this hidden gem in July 2013. We loved this place so much that we decided to return for a quiet getaway. Here's the short version: this is a GREAT place for adults (couples and friends) to spend time relaxing and... More

My husband and I saved up to finally take a honeymoon/babymoon before the birth of our first child. We are both avid travelers, and agree that this was the absolute WORST trip of our lives. The Blue Diamond seems to be a formerly luxury hotel that has since been neglected. The staff is fantastic, but reactionary rather than proactive. Here... More

What a treat all the staff from grounds keepers to head chefs and waiters exceeded our expectations. Friendly and polite isn't enough to say about the staff. Julian the head waiter, Eniberto, David, Nicolas and so many more that made our meals so special. Thank you. Every part of the vacation was amazing. Rooms very clean, twice daily checked to... More

My boyfriend and I had been looking into getting a fancier, more exclusive resort. We had checked the Sandals, but decided for the Blue Diamond instead as it is smaller and seemed even better. Our expectations were high, but they were blown away by everything we got there. First, the resort is GORGEOUS: mangroves, lagoons and cenote, manicured landscapes while... More

my boyfriend and I visited the Blue Diamond last year and have been dreaming about returning ever since...it's an incredible, luxurious, boutique hotel with gorgeous beach and facilities. Sure, there's only two restaurant locations on the property...but that never bothered us too much, we were too busy relaxing. As New Yorkers always on the go- it was the perfect break.... More

It's amazing how your first overall impression of a place begins to change the longer you're there. From the outset, there is a sense of refined elegance. The check in process is almost zen like. But then, reality sets in, which is not to say this is a run of the mill resort, it's just that the luster began fading... More
