This was my first experience at an all inclusive. I fear that I will have set the bar too high. The staff here have the guests well being at heart and it shows. From the reception, to the restaurants and bars, nothing but impecable service. The food, very tasty, well prepared and served with a smile. The room size (villa...

This is a stunning all inclusive all suite property in a unique setting. The property is long and narrow and might be a mile or more long from the reception to the ocean front restaurant and pools. Rooms are more like contemporary two story homes clustered in the jungle on either a cenote, a lagoon or facing the beach all...

This resort is made special by the people that work there. They are amazing and do their best to provide you with all your needs. The service is exceptional. The staff at the Aquamarine restaurant were fun and intelligent. They know before you, what you will need! We also had the opportunity to dance to the music of a very...

I had never gone to an all-inclusive before, mainly because of stories of bad food, bad drinks, and everything else also bad. None of these conditions apply here. From the moment I entered the reception area, all the stress of the last 3 years of my life seemed to just melt away. I have never stayed anywhere where the staff...

I do not want it to appear that I am being too negative. Conversely, I am just trying to avoid being too repetitive to others’ positive comments. This place is really special. NEGATIVES A large corporate group checked in during our stay. They closed one of the restaurants each night to accommodate the group. It would have been nice to...

Not sure why this resort is so low on the list. But I will first point out the draw backs that some might find unattractive. There is no night life, only 3 dining options and the property is very spread out. With that said, none of this was a problem for us. We enjoy there not being any night life...

My best friend and I met here for a long weekend in March. The staff was fantastic, the room was huge, and the resort was clean and well taken care of. The only downside was the spa.

My daughter and I just had our best vacation ever at the Blue Diamond. It is unlike any all-inclusive I have ever experienced. . . and we've been to our share of them. Everything was exquisite.
