If you are looking for Heaven on Earth, this is where you will find it!
We have visited Las Alamandas several time with family or friends. It is the most utterly sublime, peaceful, gorgeous, place ever. The staff is wonderful - gracious, efficient, discreet, punctual, engaging and charming and friendly. The food is of the best quality and prepared with imagination and love. The fresh pico del gallo we eat everyday at almost every meal and the margaritas flowed smoothly. We have really enjoyed our stays here. Whenever I think of vacation, this is the first place that comes to mind.
You won't be disappointed! Truly!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous, but the ones closest to the water are my favorites.

Spent a week in a private reserve with four beaches a magnificent collection of art and a beachfront villa with the ocean lapping at our feet. The food and service was unforgettable. So private and away from the beaten track. We hiked played tennis swam and did nothing. The staff arranged for anything we wanted to do. We felt all alone and loved the experience.

We recently returned to Las Alamandas and once again found it to be our own private nirvana. This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and completely serene places that we have visited. We mountain bike, walk the secluded beaches or, sometimes, just sit on our porch and watch the waves crash on the beach. There are usually only 4-10 other guests, so you always feel as if you are at your own private resort. The entire staff is extraordinarily nice and accommodating, the food great ( hats off to Chef Alex ) and the entire ambiance one of tranquility. If you read the other reviews, most of them contain the word "Paradise" and we could not agree more.

Room Tip: All the rooms are unique, but the rooms directly on the beach are noisier due to the crashing of the...

Unbelievable!! This place is definitely remote and off the beaten path, but once the road ends at Las Alamandas you will be very happy that you made the trip! It is absolutely one of the most gorgeous places I've ever been. When at full capacity there are 30 - 40 guests. Our group of 8 had the place totally to ourselves the first four days we were there. The food was wonderful, the service impecible. We stayed at Casa Del Sol the Presidential suite. All the rooms were spacious with wonderful amenities. We even enjoyed the Tejon (a little raccoon type animal that scours for food every night and tries to break into the rooms, but is very sweet and cute). Enjoy horseback riding, tennis, workout at the gym, ride bikes, relax by the pool, swing in a hammock or just listen to the waves break on the shore and read a book. This place is heaven! The only negative is that there is NO Verizon service, and there is only slow (not high speed) internet available in the office and galerie room, it does not work in the suites. We will definitely go back! They even built a wonderful bonfire for us one night on the beach. A real GEM. Look forward to a floral decoration on your bed every night.

Room Tip: There are 3 houses directly on the beach and 3 just above those. We stayed in Costa Del Sol in the...

We stayed here for 5 days for our quick honeymoon in 2006 and had an absolute blast. Impeccable rooms, personable service, great food and accommodation. We couldn't have been happier.

There are only a handful of places remotely close to this concept on Earth, and Alamandas is truly in a league by itself. We love it because it is colorful, yet elegant, which is not easy to pull off. They have leveraged the very best flavors and beauty of Mexico but the service and attention to detail is that of a fine European Chateau. I thought the cuisine was excellent and I really wished I could have stayed longer and somehow convinced them to do cooking classes :) The views were spectacular and the property has MILES of private beaches. The water can be challenging for swimming depending on the season. But the beachfront pool is so beautiful and deep. The suites are all tucked away from the beach to the middle of the property and privacy is key. I never heard a peep from anyone else. Obviously the property is ideal for couples and romance, but i could see myself on a personal retreat here as well. They have amazing horseback riding and a private beach accessible by car on the Northside of the property which if you can is MUST arrange for a private picnic. Alamandas = Perfection. The enchantment and the spell remain very strongly.

Room Tip: I saw a few of the suites and bungalows and you really cannot go wrong. If you must have beachfront...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Las Alamandas is an exclusive resort situated on 1,500 acres within a private estate on the Pacific coast and is a pristine nature reserve. It is Mexico's ultimate escape! This secluded haven, named by many magazines as one of the most romantic hotels of the world, was designed and developed by Isabel Goldsmith-Patino. It offers to its guest's luxury, comfort and the highest standards of personalized hospitality in an exquisite setting.Las Alamandas was featured on the cover of Architectural Digest and was chosen by The Robb Report 100 as one of "Earth's Most Exclusive Retreats". It is not a diamond in the rough, it is an exquisite jewel on the Costalegre. Managed like an elegant private estate where guests feel completely at home. The resort is ideal for a romantic getaway, intimate honeymoons, unique family reunions and spectacular beach weddings. Seven villas luxuriously designed for gracious indoor-outdoor living and beautifully appointed suites offer privacy, comfort and accommodate up to 42 guests. The clients are such as Brad Pitt, Sting and Trudie Styler, Maxwell, and Cindy Crawford. Robert de Niro has taken the entire hotel for the Christmas holidays several times. With a clientele of many celebrity guests and Fortune 500 CEO's, the hotel is often rented out in its entirety for a special event and is a favorite location for fashion shoots. Guests can enjoy gourmet Contemporary Mexican Cuisine featuring a fusion of finest Mexican recipes prepared with fresh and organic ingredients, fresh seafood and produce grown on-property. Meals are served at the "Oasis" restaurant, at the main Beach Club "La Palapa "overlooking the Pacific Ocean, in the privacy of your suite or as a gourmet-picnic on one of the four private beaches. Guests can indulge with spa treatments and massages to the sound of the Pacific. They can enjoy horseback riding at sunset, kayaking on the lagoons, take bicycle tours or hike to Look-out Point or simply sunbathe by the pool or take a siesta gently swaying in one of the many hammocks. More than a luxurious vacation retreat, Las Alamandas is the perfect hideaway ... more   less
