Where to start? Check in was simple. As I like to arrive Mexico early in the day to enjoy that full day, we checked in and went straight to lunch. And wow, what a lunch it was. When you order a "glass" of wine, they bring you a "bottle" of wine. I was with 2 of my best guy friends, and we each drink different wines. We each had a silver bucket and 3 bottles of wine with lunch. Even more impressive, is that when you order a tuna salad at LeBlanc, you receive the most delectable sashimi grade tuna, the most exotic olives, fancy greens and top notch olive oil and balsamic. Even from room service! Perfection.
After our fabulous lunch, we were given our room keys from our floor butler, and the butler had unpacked all of our bags and every article was hung perfectly in the closet, shoes on racks, hats on racks, all toiletries lined up in the bathroom, and even some personal items from my luggage were nicely stored in discreet bags by the bed :) Rooms are modern, clean with great bathrooms, comfy mattresses and great pillows. Perfection.
As you walk down the hallways from your room to the elevators, the butler at each floor desk sees you coming and already has the elevator waiting for you. We would then tell our floor butler what we would like our room to smell like when we come back (there is a list in the room to chose from) and upon coming back to the room, you got it, our room smelled like heaven. Perfection.
Restaurants: Where to start?
The Asian restaurant had a wait, which we found odd. They were very busy. We continued to try to stump our server and ordered drinks like pina coladas and mai tais. I was with two high end bartenders from the Ritz Carlton, and we all stated that every drink we ordered was the best drink we had ever had. Food at the asian restaurant was incredible. We ordered probably everything on the menu.
The Italian restaurant was our favorite and we went several times. Beautiful decor, and outstanding food/service. Beef carpaccio, mushroom risotto, osso bucco. And for after dinner drinks, a nice French Connection - $45/drink at the Ritz Carlton but included at LeBlanc!
We tried the french restaurant one night, and enjoyed it. Perhaps a little too quiet in there for us. Breakfast buffet was tops. The servers even carried your plate to your table once you filled it up. Usually I would feel this would be "intrusive", but it was a delight. And every morning I filled the plate and just handed it to my marvelous server.
Lunch by the pool was culinary delight. More sashima tuna? Why yes, please. And a bottle of pinot grigio. Bucket of bottle water? Why yes, please.
Room service, we ordered about 3 times a day between meals. And then a nap. I've never slept so much or relaxed so much in my life.
I will say this. Spa music is played by the pool. And while very enjoyable the first few days, it would have been nice to have some more upbeat music at times.
We were there during Super Bowl, and LeBlanc threw an amazing Super Bowl party. Wings, BBQ, and all the fixings with large screen viewing and comfy sofas.
The Spa? Wow. A steam room that was full of steam? And you have a private steam room with several choices. I suggest a daily morning steam to get you going. The entire hotel always smelled like a spa.
Best food, best drinks, best service, period. Perfection. I almost cried when we left. Who was going to carry my plate for me and unpack my bags when I got home? I dream of returning to this place. Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth every penny. You betcha!
Splurge at this place, you will not regret it!
