Cathy and I recently returned to Las Hadas for the tenth time. We were greeted by many familiar faces, both staff and guests. The staff, as usual, provided the same wonderful service as we had in all our previous visits. Gracias! And for anyone visiting Las Hadas, please remember to tip generously. The economy in Mexico has not been that great for a few years and believe me, tips are appreciated by the staff. Even though mi 'espanol es indecente', the staff applauds the effort if you try to speak a little Spanish. Give it a whirl, you'll see what I mean. And remember, no line-ups and no getting up at 6 am to put a towel on a chaise lounge at Las Hadas.
The hotel looked wonderful with it's fresh coat of paint. The waterfalls were working and the tile had been repaired somewhat in the main pool. The weather was sunny and clear around 30 degrees for the entire two weeks. We were given Room 1100 above the square and enjoyed a wonderful view of the bay and its surroundings, as well as beautiful sunrises. I hope we can get this room again next year.
A couple of nights we wandered over to the Bistro and Pasta Restaurants by the Marina to try the food. It was fabulous. Several guests commented on Legazpi's Restaurant and said it was enjoyable. We did not try it this time. The theme nights were well prepared and well presented to the MANY hotel guests, most of which were Canadian. Delphines was great, the buffets exceptionally good, and the "any way you want it" shrimp was a big hit. Breakfast at El Palmar was its usual fantastic.
A couple of hiccups to mention were the excavation across the bay with it's continuous machine work and the changes to the menu. Over the years we have seen many changes to the food at this resort. The days of fish skewers and shrimp cocktails at the pool are gone. Carpachhio, coconut shrimp, seafood dinner for two and whole snapper are non-existent. Buffets seem to be the norm but there are no specialties on the menu. In the past there were extra charges for some dishes and believe me, they were worth it. I hope they come back.
From what I heard the new Manager of the hotel is doing a good job. Staff seem a lot happier than our last visit in January 2013. Perhaps Las Hadas is turning a corner and returning to it's former glory. The menu changes, I'm sure and I hope, are not far behind. It is a wonderful, magical place and we'll be back again.
