I went on a travel agent fam trip to Riviera Maya Dec 17-21 and the Seaside was my absolute favorite, even stacked against the Royale. It is intimate, quiet and much smaller than the sprawling mega resorts that have been built along the Riviera Maya. Too bad most of them are not like this.
I especially enjoyed the open air feeling of the lounge area with the bar and DJ booth that you have to climb a ladder to get to. I didn't encounter any blaring music from loudspeakers. The food was excellent and prepared with a personal touch. They also serve tamarind margaritas with cayenne pepper on the rim (a must try!) Next door is the Hidden Beach Au Naturel Resort.
I believe because of this the Seaside tries to keep their image low key and low profile, and with it being adults only it is really a great place to spend a relaxing vacation away from all the noisy crowded resorts. And no buffet lines!
To keep up with cuisine trends, they will open a fondue restaurant sometime in Spring 2006. All of the meals, from appetizers to desserts, will be served fondue style. They also have an excellent Asian restaurant with private dining rooms (min 4 people to reserve) and you can actually take your shoes off to eat! They have an excellent spa, with the opportunity to get an oceanfront massage at night.
I was very impressed with their recovery efforts after Wilma. Since they are so close to the beach they took a direct hit. It took 1400 people 17 days to get the place back up and running, and you can tell they have done a tremendous job. If you like to be wined and dined, this is the place for you. I will have no hesitation in sending clients there.
