This was the best trip I have ever been on without my husband and kids. My girlfriend and I try to get away for a week every two years. We picked a winner in the Le Blanc Spa.
Flew Sun Country, no problems. Both pushed green light in Cancun and on to find our ride. Time share people never gave us a second glance. I guess because we were single. Went outside and found our sign from Best Transfers with "Dos Lindas" on it. Had a car for just us for $50.00 round trip. The driver was a great tour guide. Told us stories about all the hotels that are rebuilding. He and his wife had twin boys on the day of Hurricane Wilma. WOW They will never forget that!
Had cold towels and drinks at check in. What a view when you walk in the lobby of the pool and ocean. I had called and written many times over the last month to confirm a room with 2 beds, non-smoking oceanfront. Was assured that would be no problem.
We were first taken to a room on the 7th floor, smoking, lagoon view and 2 beds.
We said no way. Then they took us to the 6th floor, king bed, partial oceanview. We said no way. On to the 3rd floor, king bed, beautiful view. They brought in a rollaway. It was too crowded with it so we had them remove it. Hey, after being best friends for 22 years, why not? We had shared before.
We had room service every morning for just coffee and juice. We had breakfast in the International rest. most mornings. It was great with quite a selection. Had lunch there a few days and ate at the pool on other days. They have a HUGE selection plus a grill. They will grill fish, burgers, chicken, whatever. They even had sushi on the buffet one day. YUM!
We went to the Italian restuarant twice for dinner. Food and presentation was great. The hostess, Italia, was so delightful. Armando took care of us personally every night that we were there. He even found us in the International rest. one night. Carlos made salmon for me and shrimp dish for Linda on the first night in the Italian rest. right at our table. Then came back after dinner and made the BEST bananas foster I have ever tasted. Had mango and strawberries foster a few nights later. WOW. The wine list was extensive and we got hooked on some Argentina wine that Nelson turned us on to.
We had reservations for the gourmet dinner but cancelled. The last night we tried the Orient rest. and it was also wonderful. I am not a steak eater but we had heard from this cute New Jersey couple to try it. OMG It was like butter melting in your mouth. The sushi for appetizers were so good and fresh.
The spa is an experience. We had a pedicure the first day and a 80 minute massage on the 3rd day. We felt so pampered and special. We could have returned everyday for something if we could afford it.
The beach was perfect. Swam a few days. The seaweed was awful the last two days so we would run up to the perfect pool to cool off. The wait service at the pool and the beach was hit and miss. Alex and Alba were the best. They would bring us things to try without even asking. The other waiters were not so outgoing but still fine.
We actually were amazed at how friendly the staff was. The sad thing was, the hotel guests were not that friendly at all. I noticed it at first and then my friend said something about it. Then we played a game to see if we could get people to smile back. Kind of funny!
Overall, we had a great time. We will be back! By the way, we arrived back at the airport 2 1/2 hours early and had a 5 minute wait in line to check in!! Oh, well, we bought cigars and liquor and went to lunch. It felt weird to pay for food at Fridays. After being at AI all week.
Also, they sent a birthday cake and champagne to our room. We had a minor mishap with maintenance and they again sent champ. and cheese and crackers on another night. Great service.
