It was our last night at the Grand Luxxe. Our family was on vacation from all parts of the U.S. to celebrate four family members' birthdays. The superb staff made our dining experience one we won't soon forget. They were very attentive, gracious, and congenial. They had several surprises to help celebrate our birthdays. My dinner of pork with cactus... More

We had the pleasure of dinning at Epazote in April 2014 and the reviews that I had read were right on the mark. This restaurant was wonderful. I took the suggestions of the reviews and had the Black Bean Soup and the Sea Bass...BOTH WERE MARVELOUS. My husband had the Short Ribs which had a most ample serving and was... More

Sleekly designed interior/exterior space in Grand Luxxe. Had a hard time choosing my dinner, everything was tempting and well described. Terrific octopus salad with purslane in a lime vinaigrette followed by beef short ribs in mole. Presentation and service were spectacular. Finished with a coconut mousse flan with hibiscus sorbet. My best meal ever in PV!

We first visited this restaurant not long after it opened. Service then was poor and food quality was not worth the price. We avoided going back her for the next three years. What a mistake. This was by far the best food and service we have had during our stay at the Grand Luxxe. My wife had the pork and... More

We were at the Grand Luxxe in January 2014 and dined the first evening at Epazote. Everyone had wonderful food, the service was exceptional, and the outdoor setting was beautiful. No bug problems in January. We also took the cooking class a few days later - I would recommend that experience. We had about 10-12 people in the class with... More

This was our second visit to the restaurant as we'd gone last year. My son remembered liking it so we went again. It is very average and overpriced. Which is what my husband had remembered. There is much better Mexican food off of the resort at half the price. I will give them high marks for their frozen margaritas, which... More

This is an upscale Mexican restaurant on the Vida Resort and the menu had a variety of great selections which we had not eaten before.

Here on the lobby floor of the Grand Luxx Tower One within the Grand Mayan resort complex is the essence of casual elegance. At first glance the sumptuously laid out tables may strike some as formality demanding the right dress codes. Indeed most of the guest are decked out in their Sunday best. But the maitre 'd Carlos gladly welcomed... More
