What is there to say about Le Blanc that hasn’t been said over a thousand times!
The number one thing Le Blanc has going for them is the level of service. Service is something that is hard to beat in the area as service in Mexico has always been beyond impressive. Le Blanc adds an extra oomph to service by adding options other resorts do not. For example; the butler service is quite remarkable. They offer to unpack and pack your luggage on arrival and departure. Every evening they bring a type of chocolate truffle. Any time you want to use the hottub they fill it for you and add bath salts and room aromatherapy of your choice. I requested this service using the Le Blanc app (which is awesome, you can book all sorts of services using the app) from the beach and at exactly the time I asked it was ready. To top it off the Jacuzzi had pink rose petals around it and on the floor. They have a pillow menu which is awesome! On arrival the butler heard me mention I like sparkling wine and the wine arrived to the room minutes later.
The butlers get up to call the elevator for you, obviously this is not necessary but these are the kind of service oriented details they have at Le Blanc that makes them stand out. Another item I never seen at a resort or hotel before is in addition to a hair dryer they also have a flat iron in the room.The mini bar has a full bar and a variety of soda’s & juices. You can request something specific with the butler and he will assure you have that in the mini bar. Mini bar snacks were granola bars, M&Ms, snickers or milky way, and Ferrero rocher chocolates. You have a bottle of wine in the room on arrival.
Food and drinks were of very high quality, the dinners were exquisite. Loved the Italian and the Orient restaurants; food was amazing and the menu options were plentiful. The wine included was good, one thing I noticed here that stood out is when you order a glass of wine they actually had options and the entire bottle is delivered to your table.
Rooms are lovely, not over-sized but well appointed. we had a partial ocean view. The view was amazing. In fact I could not get enough of this view that I had breakfast in the room every day in front of the french balcony with the fresh morning breeze. Speaking of breakfast, everything was great with the exception of the eggs benedict which were average. Room service at 2:00AM was impressive.
The resort credits are great, check out all that is available and use them to get the best value out of them for your needs. I used the credit at the jewelry store and the spa and it was well worth it. We only had $150 spa credits which we used for a massage and deluxe pedicure and only paid $32 out of pocket which is a great deal as the spa and services were excellent.
Le Blanc may not be everyone, the night life is quiet and the hotel style is very modern and spa like. Some people love this others hate it. Not a fault of the hotel but people need to do some leg work before booking. The focus here is service and attention to detail with high quality drinks and food. You are within walking distance to the Cancun night life, if that is what you are into.
Suggestions/areas for improvement:
The pool areas are beginning to show a little age. The beds/cabanas on the beach should be of much better quality to match the price tag.
A live band in the lobby or lounge who plays latin music, salsa, or anything latin would be nice. Maybe even a mariachi band on occasion. One night at the lounge the DJ played some Latin music which impressed me a great deal and then a guest requested they play some obnoxious pop loud nonsense which ruined the beautiful vibe going on in the lounge. Same group of people caused some sort of confrontation within their own group. I know Le Blanc aims to please guests and can’t control the nonsense caused by their guests but this is so obnoxious to deal with! That is why having a salsa band for instance may add a different element where guests can’t exactly go ask them to play Laday Gaga.
Overall it was an excellent stay and we were treated beautifully by everyone there! Happy Vacationing.
