Just returned from 3 days at the Nizuc resort and wished we could have had stayed longer! We had an ocean view room in building 1 that looked out over the bay with a wall of windows that opened up to a huge terrace. The sunsets were amazing. The room was modern, beautiful and clean. The beds were the best we have ever slept in on any of our travels to Mexico. We would come back just for our room. Our room butler, Aldo, was so kind and very on top of things. He stayed discreetly out of sight, but only had to dial his extension and he would set up what ever we needed. The infinity pool is gorgeous as is the adult pool. Yes this is a family resort, but it is quiet. At first my husband and I were thinking why would anyone bring kids here, but since this is not a " let's get drunk at the swim up bar" kind of place, we could see why. Only one family was English speaking, and the children were younger-which did make the adult pool very nice to have.
The beach is smaller but lovely. They have kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkel gear available to use when ever. There are mangroves on the property so it was fun and pretty to kayak by them. The water is calm, turquoise blue, and shallow so you can paddle or walk way out and feel completely comfortable. My husband snorkeled by the reef on the property and had a squid swim right below him-how cool is that!
We ate at Indochine and sat out side by the water garden. The Asian inspired food was very good and the ambiance even better. We also ate at the La Playa Grill which was wonderful. The ocean front building sets on its own with pathways lit by lanterns. My husband had the fish special and I had the rib eye. Both were very good.
The staff couldn't have been nicer and the grounds are stunning. Hector the protector, our beach waiter, deserves a shout out. Lots of water features and very romantic at night with paths lit by lanterns and big urns lit with fire. The bars are gorgeous especially at night. The whole place has a romantic sort of modern exotic vibe. Very cool, very discreet life styles of the rich and famous thing going for it. So with that being said it is pricey, so you have to go into it with that mid set. We had the breakfast buffet included in our stay which was a nice size and had great options.
