I spent one full week at the spa and had a wonderful and relaxing week. First off, I will tell anyone reading this that there is no reason to feel any danger due to the political climate in Mexico. The spa bus picks you up at the Mexico City airport, takes you on an expressway all the way to the spa, which is in a very safe and charming town, with plenty of security.
The rooms at the spa were not plush but were fine. The beds were very comfortable and the facilities were spotless. The treatments were plentiful - we were on the spa plan. Six massages, three facials, three foot reflexology, manicure, pedicure, hair treatments, style, and on and on. The yoga class was amazing as were the morning walks (escorted) in the mountains. The other classes were taught by the same person, and were just fair, but good enough. The food was good. There are two dining rooms; the regular and the spa. I preferred the regular dining room with the typical Mexican food, but if you were trying to watch your weight, the spa food was wonderful. I went with a group of women who have been coming together for years. This was my first time, but I fit right into the group, but would have been fine on my own too. The pool is gorgeous as are the surroundings. There is a house physician who will come to your room and give you acupuncture or take you to his clinic for face-fills (botox and juvederm, etc.) He was very professional and definitely did a good job on some of the ladies. We were kept so busy that I barely had time to read my book!
The price is right, the services are great, and it is definitely a relaxing getaway.
Next time I'll bring more cash to be able to buy from the vendors in the town and more creams from Rossy's in town!
