My Husband and I spent 6 wonderful days at Le Blanc Spa resort. Like many of you, we chose Le Blanc solely by internet reviews and forums. We wanted a destination that didn't take all day to get to (from Chicago), beautiful ocean to swim in, soft sugary sand, no children, and a touch of pampering. The reviews all hit the mark and even surpassed our expectations.
We were impressed from the minute we were met at the airport by our arranged transfer through Chazza travel. Our driver filled us in on the rebuilding status of the area and pointed out interesting land marks on the way to the resort. The van was on time, clean, airconditioned and we had it all to ourselves. As the door opened at Le Blanc the magical scent of the resort was the first sense to be pleased....
With a cold fresh smelling rolled up towel handed to us at check in, to freshen up, and a tall drink in a champagne flute, we could tell immediatley we were going to be pampered. Quickly escorted to our room with our luggage we were told how a few things operated then left to enjoy all the details and luxury in our Ocean Front suite. The Butler arrived shortly and explained his role and duties and offered to iron clothing if needed or unpack for us.....WOW... We loved thethick white towels, the clean shower and floors, the very comphy King size bed and fine linens, the slippers (that I'm wearing every day), the robes, the toiletries, stocked fridge and snacks, the magnificent view both day and night of the ever changing blues in the ocean and pools, the flat screen tv with quiet music playing when you come in after dinner, the dimmer swithches on the lights, the light up alabaster bed side tables (so cool I'd love them in my bedroom), the safe for passports and money (you really didn't need to carry a wallet around), the quiet walls (rarely heard anything from anywhere) except for one windy night when the roof at the top of the atrium outside our room was popping and banging in the strong winds!
Restaurants- We dined at the oriental and italian twice each and the Terrace gourmet tasting once. We both loved the lamb chops entree and the tarimisu dessert at Blancitalia and the Appetizer sampler with spring rolls and tempura shrimp and vegetables and Grilled grouper at the Blancorient. We enjoyed Ernesto as our waiter at Italia. We both thought the terrace dinning was lovely atmosphere but a lot of food and many different wines/champagne....go to that very hungry. Waiters always asked to take your picture if you had your camera with you. Breakfast was amazing at the buffet on the main level. We had such delicious breakfasts we didn't really have large lunches, mostly snacks by the pool that the waiter would order for you and bring right to you poolside. Yummy Nachos. Drinks were plentiful and continuous. We really enjoyed Alex at the main pool and beach. He was so happy to get you everything you wanted. He ran...yes ran, from the beach to the bar to order your food and came back with your drinks while the food cooked. He discovered I liked "coke lite" with lime and even brought a cup of limes for me when he forgot the lime one time! He would keep a cold water bottle and your drink fresh, and replaced before you could even ask for another! He really went far beyond what he need to, happily, and genuinely for our pleasure...other waiters at the pool were good, and prompt when you motioned your need, but Alex just went the extra step before you even needed to ask.
Pool and Ocean- Comfy chairs to lay out on, loved the ones in the pool itself. If you need an umbrella at the beach or pool someone would help you get one and position it just right for you. Nice thick clean white towels, as many as you like, made the day in the sun even more pleasurable. Only Saturday seemed more crowded, but every other day you had your pick of where you wanted to sit. Hanging over the edge of the infinity pool starring off out to the ocean through layers and layers of blue hues was definately my favorite spot....add a yummy frozen drink in a tall curvy glass (plastic) , husband at my side, and the mood was complete...RELAXED Sand was clean, white, soft, sea weed raked up all the time, rough on the last 3 days, but still fun to try and boogie board in.
Baby green sea turtles- we too got the unexpected pleasure of being part of the release to the ocean. In an effort of conservation, the local resorts gather the eggs and place them in a safe area till they hatch. With- in two days of the hatching they are released to the ocean at night so the birds will not get them on their way to the water. It was a neat experience that we will always remember. No cameras were permitted.
In conclusion, we couldn't have been happier with our time at Le Blanc. The staff all deserve a large pat on the back for their sincere dedication to pleasing the guests and their welcoming nature. Other than my travels in Australia, I have never felt more welcome and cared for. I hope to travel here again, it would be the easiest decision I've ever made. If you want to get way from everyday stresses, reconnect with your spouse, honeymoon, or join other couples on a vacation, this is the place. It's calming sounds, relaxing scents, fabulous tastes, soothing waters, and pristine views all add up to a vacation for all your senses!
Thank you Le Blanc for a fabulous 40th birthday...you made turning 40 a complete pleasure!
