We had enjoyed a very interesting tour of the Yucatan peninsula for a week (with Thomsons) and chose the Seaside Suites,( for our week of doing nothing!) because it was all inclusive, adults only and 5*. We were not disappointed. We asked for a quiet room which was well away from the centre of the resort, but near enough to the beach and it was beautiful. Spacious, well fitted with everything you could wish for and a lovely balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens. You could eat at any of the 5 restaurants without having to make a reservation (although at peak times you had to wait for a table) and the food was the best we have had on any holiday. It was all waiter service, even breakfast, and freshly cooked for you. There was a beach barbeque at lunch times, if you fancied a change from formal dining, where it was self service, but that was lovely as it was very informal. The staff were always friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The sea was beautiful and warm but difficult for swimming as it was so shallow up to the reef, and quite shingly, although all the time we were there there was work going on to clear the sea of rocks.
One thing we did find strange was that we were verbally told, on arrival, about the dress code for dinner in the restaurants (gentlemen should wear long trousers and collared shirts, and full shoes), and there was a notice outside each restaurants to this effect, but this rule was never enforced which was a shame as the restaurants were so smart and it did lower the tone. A lot of men in shorts and flip flops looking as if they had just come off the beach!
All in all the hotel was delightful and we would certainly recommend it to anyone going to Mexico.
