The Grand Luxxe room was the best room i ever stayed in. We had a 2 bedroom, it was huge! The balcony was the length of the whole room. The service was fantastic. Had the room next to the conceige, so I was able to make espresso/ coffee at anytime, you can also help yourself to waters and sodas which was a nice plus. If you stay at the Luxxe you are treated like royalty. We were able to get a shuttle fast. The only con with this resort is that you share this place with other resorts...ex....Mayan Palce, Grand Mayan, Bliss....You have to take a shuttle everywhere. It is not an open layout. The jungle is in the way. Each resort has it's own pool. All the pools were fantastic. If you stay at the Luxxe you have the privledge to be able to go to any pool in the complex. IMI Grand Mayan pool was my fav.
The burger place at the Luxxe was delish!
Con.... If you are looking for a beach resort, then forget it. Can't swim, too rocky. ; (
If your looking to go to Playa you take a shuttle which is $5 person. 5th Ave is a must see....great bars and restaurants...beach is beautiful. Walmart is there to stock up on food/drinks for your room.
Another con for me was that the Riviera Maya is in the middle of no where. You have to take a taxi/shuttle. I enjoy walking and being able to see/do things....Felt like my $ went a lot to taxis and shuttles.....
