“Paradise in Mexico!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Definitely Paradise on earth...
Gorgeous views.
Breathtaking sunset.
Amazing nature, perfect service, with a crew of amazing mexican employees.
I have travelled extensively but this place is really the best ever.
However the ride to arrive there is quiet complicated and bumpy...
An airport is planned for the next couple years and it would be perfect then.
The ocean coulld be a little rough but it is gorgeous and clean.
Everything is done in the best taste: colors, furniture, flowers, art in the rooms , the library,the dining room.
Even the choices of articles in the boutique are beautiful.
I would love to be able to return to this resort!

Room Tip: We were staying in the San Miguel suite,very nice and confortable with great gardens and partial oce...

If anyone tells you las alamandas is like paradise they are lying. THIS PLACE TRULY IS PARADISE. Words cannot adequately describe this place. It is the nicest place I have ever seen. It is magical, beautiful and incredibly private. If anyone tells you that there is no such thing as four seasons service in mexico they have not been to las alamandas. The service is remarkable. The incredible staff have one goal in mind and that is to make your stay incredible. The private beaches are magnificent. Wine and cheese at sunset point, a romantic candle lit dinner, a by the ocean couples massage could not be improved.
I must say if I ever went back to St. Barts (and I don't think i ever would) it would have a bahamas type feel next to las alamandas.
There is only one terrible thing about las alamandas; leaving.

I could not stop smiling form the moment we arrived! The setting is beautiful and attention to detail incredible. The staff are very friendly, helpful and make you feel as though you are staying in your own personal paradise. Pure relaxation guaranteed! Go on a horseback ride along one of the amazing virgin beaches & take a tour of the reserve to appreciate the surrounding area and wildlife. A trip to nearby Punta Perula is recommended also. It's been called "One of the most romantic places on earth" I definitely agree!

My husband recently surprised me with a trip to Las Alamandas for my birthday. What a stunning place, service and location. We were greeted by 3 wonderful and welcoming staff to a room with beautiful bouquets of flowers and a delicous margarita. We were blown away by the stunning beaches, we drove around the entire property and visited each virgen beach. We had a wonderful candlelit dinner on the beach, followed by a visit from the chef with my birthday cake. Pablo was our very sweet and attentive server for the weekend and we really appreciated his service. Highly Recommended!

If you are looking for Heaven on Earth, this is where you will find it!
We have visited Las Alamandas several time with family or friends. It is the most utterly sublime, peaceful, gorgeous, place ever. The staff is wonderful - gracious, efficient, discreet, punctual, engaging and charming and friendly. The food is of the best quality and prepared with imagination and love. The fresh pico del gallo we eat everyday at almost every meal and the margaritas flowed smoothly. We have really enjoyed our stays here. Whenever I think of vacation, this is the first place that comes to mind.
You won't be disappointed! Truly!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous, but the ones closest to the water are my favorites.

Spent a week in a private reserve with four beaches a magnificent collection of art and a beachfront villa with the ocean lapping at our feet. The food and service was unforgettable. So private and away from the beaten track. We hiked played tennis swam and did nothing. The staff arranged for anything we wanted to do. We felt all alone and loved the experience.

Las Alamandas is an exclusive resort situated on 1,500 acres within a private estate on the Pacific coast and is a pristine nature reserve. It is Mexico's ultimate escape! This secluded haven, named by many magazines as one of the most romantic hotels of the world, was designed and developed by Isabel Goldsmith-Patino. It offers to its guest's luxury, comfort and the highest standards of personalized hospitality in an exquisite setting.Las Alamandas was featured on the cover of Architectural Digest and was chosen by The Robb Report 100 as one of "Earth's Most Exclusive Retreats". It is not a diamond in the rough, it is an exquisite jewel on the Costalegre. Managed like an elegant private estate where guests feel completely at home. The resort is ideal for a romantic getaway, intimate honeymoons, unique family reunions and spectacular beach weddings. Seven villas luxuriously designed for gracious indoor-outdoor living and beautifully appointed suites offer privacy, comfort and accommodate up to 42 guests. The clients are such as Brad Pitt, Sting and Trudie Styler, Maxwell, and Cindy Crawford. Robert de Niro has taken the entire hotel for the Christmas holidays several times. With a clientele of many celebrity guests and Fortune 500 CEO's, the hotel is often rented out in its entirety for a special event and is a favorite location for fashion shoots. Guests can enjoy gourmet Contemporary Mexican Cuisine featuring a fusion of finest Mexican recipes prepared with fresh and organic ingredients, fresh seafood and produce grown on-property. Meals are served at the "Oasis" restaurant, at the main Beach Club "La Palapa "overlooking the Pacific Ocean, in the privacy of your suite or as a gourmet-picnic on one of the four private beaches. Guests can indulge with spa treatments and massages to the sound of the Pacific. They can enjoy horseback riding at sunset, kayaking on the lagoons, take bicycle tours or hike to Look-out Point or simply sunbathe by the pool or take a siesta gently swaying in one of the many hammocks.
