We spent seven nights at La Amada at the end of September 2011. In short: this may be the nicest luxury hotel I have ever stayed in. We did the all inclusive package which was terrific. That includes all drinks, food, water, even M&Ms in the mini bar. The junior suite rooms are 965 square feet, and the shower with rain forest sprinklers is huge.
This is the first all inclusive that did not feature buffets... only one at breakfast. There are three restaurants and all sit down experiences, ordering off the menu. The food is just great, but you can't get things like fish tacos or fajitas at night. It's more like Mexican fusion and first class. The fish tacos on the beach were some of the best I have ever had.
My only complaint: the daily cleaning service was a bit slow. One day they didn't get to our room until nearly 3 p.m. and this was in a slow period.
I thought it also needed a larger outdoor bar. The only one I spotted was at the Isla Grill where there were just five seats at the bar. Granted, many of the bars were closed because it was the slow season.
Next door is the Excellence Hotel, a sister project that caters to adults. It seemed more happening and some events at night, but we preferred La Amada because it was smaller (only 109 room) and lower key. ANother benefit: the hotel is only three or four years old so it's practically brand new.
As noted, we stayed in a junior suite which was huge. They have "casitas" closer to the beach with private pools but they were quite pricey. Iif you can afford it, do it.
All the staff spoke passable English and all were pleasant and friendly. Would I go back? Yes. Love this place.
