My wife and I returned from La Amada Hotel this week and thought the hotel and staff were fantastic. We hope to return there soon.
SERVICE: The service was outstanding. I'm not sure if this was due to the fact that the hotel is new and trying to develop its reputation but the staff really went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Upon arrival we were greeted kindly by staff with champagne and later the hotel manager came and introduced himself and gave us his card.
LOCATION: The hotel is located about 20 minutes drive north of the main Cancun area and sits in a very quiet location between the partner hotel - the Excellence - and the condos that are being constructed by the hotel. There location is advantageous if you are seeking some peace and quiet (as we were) but is not very convenient for those seeking to travel around and see the greater Cancun area. For those planning to travel around it might be wise to rent a vehicle.
ROOM: We booked a Junior Suite and found the room to be large and very well equipped. We particularly liked the openness of the room which allowed the sea breeze to blow through. The room was equiped with most modern ameneties such as the large HDTV, DVD player, Ipod player etc. The room also contained a bar, jacuzzi, and extremely large shower with multiple jets. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony listening to the ocean except for one evening when we had some noisy neighbors that insisted on playing CNN at full volume on their balcony (I should note that within the room we couldn't hear anything from our neighbors).
RESTAURANTS: Within the hotel complex there are two restaurants with a fairly typical array of meats and seafoods. The service was excellent and when we commented that we wanted some more traditional Mexican food, the Chef created a special menu the next evening for us that was the best food was ate on our trip to Mexico. Another evening my wife commented that she was disappointed Flan was not offered as a dessert - the next evening it was added just for her. Breakfasts offered a variety of options and we tended to opt for the buffet which included fresh fruits, pastries, and cereals.
SPA/FITNESS CENTER: In my opinion the Spa and Fitness Center were simply stunning. Most mornings I used the Fitness Center which was equipped with the most modern equipment. The Spa was enormous and the staff were very friendly and attentive, unfortunately it took three days before we first used the Spa and then we wondered why we took so long.
POOLS: The complex contains a number of infinity pools that are well cared for and a lot of fun. The poolside bar is not yet open but the service staff were eager to deliver drinks to anywhere around the poolside area or beach.
I would definitely recommend the hotel for anyone who wants to enjoy the beach and warmth of Cancun but doesn't want to get involved in the whole "Spring Break" scene.
