We booked our travel through www.destinationweddings.com and had pre-arranged airport transfers through American Express Travel. From the moment we stepped foot out of the airport we knew exactly what to look for in order not to get distracted, which was extremely helpful. When we found the American Express guides they asked where we were going. When we said, "La Amada in Playa Mujeres" every one of them stopped in their tracks and looked at us saying, "you will love it. That is the best property you could've chosen." We automatically knew we made the right choice.
If you are worried about safety this area is the best possible place you could choose. Formerly a jungle, La Amada is shared with the Excellence Playa Mujeres, where we transferred for our honeymoon. There are three security check points you must go through with security guards in full gear, including weapons. The shuttle driver told us they are very strict on who is let in. I felt extremely safe.
From the moment we pulled up to La Amada we were greeted with warm and welcoming smiles, cold towels and a glass of champagne. Roberto at the front desk was very helpful with information as we did have a bit of a schedule to meet with the fabulous wedding coordinator, Nayeli.
We were escorted to our room and he showed us everything the room had to offer with explanations and to answer any questions we had about the property. The rooms are fabulous! They are extremely generous in terms of space, the layout is wonderful, the showers are FANTASTIC and the view of the impecable grounds is breath taking.
As our wedding guests were checking in they would let me know each time, which to me was very helpful and shows the level of customer service that is provided.
The food was very good. I am blessed to live in a big city with many spectacular options for dining and typically some places are disspointing on the quality and taste of food as we are acustom to but La Amada is wonderful.
There are only two restaurants but the options are tasty and we mixed it up a couple of times eating the brunch in the morning- with complimentary mimosas and bloody marys (big PLUS) and eating an early dinner at Isla Grill.
You HAVE to try the Guacamole at Isla Grill!!!
This hotel was absolutely perfect for our wedding. We had 15 people and the best part to me was having no problems finding your guests to hang out by the beach, eat lunch, go to the Lupita Lounge at night. If we would've been in a larger resort it would've been impossible to do that. On terms of activities, all of our group took a ferry ride to Isla Mujeres and we had a blast. It's much cheaper over there in terms of food and drinks. Playa de Norte beach is breathtaking. We rented golf carts and toured the whole island and stopped off for souveniers as well. My husband and I even went back a second time by ourselves and ate at their local market. Definitely a must to head to the island for fun.
All of our guests were extremely impressed with our choice for our wedding just as we were.
We had our wedding 10-10-10 on the beach and it was perfect. The weather was great! They work very hard to keep the seaweed as controlled as possible. The beach is fabulous so don't let that deter you.
We had dinner at Aroma Grill afterwards and we had a pre set menu for our guests to choose from. Most chose the filet and it did NOT dissapoint.
We then went to the beach for our beach bonfire reception with limited open bar and a mariachi band. They provided marshmallows they roasted for us over the fire. It was the most memorable experience of our lives.
We then transferred to Excellence Playa Mujeres for our honeymoon. La Amada was much better in terms of quality of food and personalized service... the rooms and closets are even bigger at La Amada. For the difference we paid per night I don't think we got our money worth but still had a fabulous time at Excellence as well.
La Amada is a hidden gem so if you're looking for a perfect getaway leaving all troubles behind, GO! You will not be disappointed.
Spa is fabulous. I did a massage and pedicure. the Hydro therapy treatment is a very unique and relaxing experience as well.
We cannot wait to return next year!!!! I think the time of year we chose was perfect. Mid 80's.
